I found this on sale in the 4 pack. The price was right and, so, I decided to give it a chance. When I poured it into a glass, it looked like a nice Triple...not much head to speak of (but fine). It smelled pleasant, more like a Heffe Weizen though. It tasted like a Heffe Weizen with some spiritedness, stretching for the elite Triple classification (but falling short). I appreciated this one for what it was. In some respects, it exceeded my expectations...mainly, because I'm not much of a fan of Sprecher beer. I would give it high marks for effort and the price point. Once I dispensed with my prejudice about Triples and judged it as a Heffe Weizen, I rather liked it. It's a huge Heffe Weizen... a surprisingly big beer...not to be underestimated. I liked the interplay of sweet, warmth and spice.

This beer pours out darker than I expect for a tripel and has almost no lasting head. The smell of the beer is where I would expect a tripel except there is a hint of caramel which I does not belong. It ends up making the beer taste sweet and, I believe, gives it a viscous mouthfeel. An excellent tripel would be drier than this, which registers with me merely as an interesting Belgian style ale that comes up lacking in the deadly deceitful drinkability that a tripel should have.

Great price for this beer- less than $9 for a strong tripel. (I remember buying this in 6 packs though. :(

A: pours with medium carbonation, and the head quickly dissipates with some slight lacing. Orangish-light gold in color. A little bit hazy.

S: Some citrus and bubblegum come right out of the glass. Lots of fruity esters. A little bit of maltiness is there as well. Reminds me of that pale, hard gum you would chew as a kid, like the true bubblegum.

T: More citrus and fruit on the palate. There is pineapple, green apple, some berry, and even orange. There is a slightly acidic, tart flavor there as well. The beer is geared towards the yeasty esters, but there is some malt sweetness and flavor as well.

M: A little thin, and not the smoothest or easy drinking trippel I've had. A little more carbonation would help. still, it is refreshing and and oily on the palate.

O: This beer has enough going on to compare with some of the better trippels out there, but doesn't pull the whole package altogether like St. Bernardus or Tripel Karmeleit. The yeast-forward approach is nice here, and the beer is very attenuated and refreshing. The acidity of the flavor could be toned down some- which is maybe suggestive of hotter fermenation temps.

Pours slightly hazed copper with a head that doesn't last long. Little lacing sticks. Nice color, but could use better head retention.

The smell is of spicy yeast, bubblegum, clove and a touch of honey. There is a vague fruitiness in the back.

The taste is of caramel, bubblegum and honey sweetness. Some fruitiness mixes in. It has a spicy, dry finish.

The body is smooth, though a few more effervescent bubbles wouldn't hurt.

This has a nice taste and not a bad interpretation for a German-style brewery!

My dog growing up's name was Abbey. This DOES NOT taste like dogs. This is clearly beer. It was okay beer. Like other Sprecher ones, it is kind of a pseudo-european style. Perhaps it is okay if I had nothing else. But they seem to not be on the forefront or cutting edge of craft brewing.
