Serving: Bottle into tulip
Served: 25 May 2014

Appearance: Pale, opaque yellow with a soapy white head that dissipates slowly into just a ring of white foam around the glass. No carbonation streaming from the bottom as in other tripels.

Smell: Rather uncomplicated, with light notes of pear, green apple, and white wine.

Taste: Same light-fruit notes as noted in the nose, along with the expected banana-like esters from the yeast. Not overly complex or multi-dimensional, but nonetheless not a half-bad example of the style.

Mouthfeel: Solid carbonation of small-bubbles and good body from the suspended yeast.

Overall: This is not a special beer by any means, but is a good soft introduction for the tripel style. I would probably not drink this again because I know much better beers are much more available.

12 oz twist off bottle poured into a Bruery tulip.
8.5% ABV

A - The beers bright goldenrod hue shines with clarity but is slightly undone by the quickly fleeting white head that allows the aroma to evaporate. Dots of lace stick to the glass after a good swirl brings the head back but it doesn't quite look the part of a classic tripel.

S - Abbey Triple's smooth, voluptuous nose focuses on Belgian-inspired yeast and it's bountiful esters of banana, white pepper, clay, coriander, and bubblegum all balanced by sweet malty notes of tick-sliced caramel-drizzled banana bread. The nose is one of the closest to authentic Belgian but it's missing that little something extra that would push it over the edge.

T - Backed by deliciously sweet pilsner malt, the beer's big yeast profile continues its quiet rampage across the tongue, delivering a combination of sweet bubblegum and banana with complimentary suggestions of coriander seed, grey clay, and a dash of white pepper on the finish.

M - Lively carbonation comes as a slight surprise after the head disappears so quickly but, Abbey Triple's mouthfeel is near perfect; creamy and smooth bodied with slightly sweet lingering finish balanced with a touch of spice and dry alcohol.

O - Sprecher's Abbey Triple was one of my first adventurous craft beer endeavors years ago and made my top five list when I was featured on the podcast The High Five. Since then I've had it now and again, revisiting bottles from time to time including some more than five years old; my experiences have been this beer does not age gracefully. But this fresh bottle of Abbey Triple wonderfully showcases Belgian yeast and the juxtaposition of both subtle and powerful fruity and spicy components brought about wholly by fermentation. Abbey Triple is a lovely beer that's also dangerously drinkable.

3.61/5  rDev +0.8%

12 oz bottle served in a Belgian snifter.

Pours hazy orange-amber with a small head that soon reduces to a few islands and a thin ring.

Aroma: fairly good mix of bready malts, toast, Belgian yeast, and soft fruits.

Flavor: fruity and bready, with light spicing from the yeast.

Feel: slightly astringent; a bit hot with the higher ABV too apparent.

O: decent, but with a harsh feel.
