On tap at the Grey Lodge Pub...
Appears a transparent gold with a small white head that quickly fades into a mild cap. Scattered spots of lacing are left around the glass.
Smell is of bananas, caramel, candi sugar, and notes of ripe fruit.
Taste is of smooth caramel, mild spice, fruit, brown sugar, rum, and light molasses.
Mouthfeel is full bodied, smooth...dangerously smooth with a light booziness found in the finish. (422 characters)

Served at the brewpub during Sunday brunch.

A: The tripel is a hazy golden color. The gold is pale, looking more yellow than orange. A small head adorned the beer and was quick to disappear.

S: The nose is full of bready grain and candi sugars, sweet but not overwhelming.

T: The breadiness of the grains does manage to peek through, which I'm not certain was the intended result. The biscuity bread detracts from the spice profile of pepper, candi and a touch of honey. Hops are crisp and pop up on the back side of a sip.

M: The mouthfeel is better than average but nothing earth shaking. The Belgian spice profile is sweet but not overbearing.

D: The ale tastes big and the serving in a 12 oz goblet was the perfect size. (729 characters)

A new Belgian "golden" Ale offering from Elk Creek. This is a nice example of a triple.

A-Brilliant golden yellow with a thin bright white head spotty lace left behind.

S-Malty and sweet with that unmistakable "Belgian" yeast aroma. A mild wafting of spicy hops in the background.

T-Mild honey like malt sweetness with a nice spicy hop pop in the aftertaste. Luscious.

M-Medium body with a smooth, creamy, syrupy feel. Never becomes cloying. A sugary smooth, sweet elixir with a mild lingering hop bitterness. Dry aftertaste.

D-Solid effort with this one. A nice sipper. Good sweetness with a balancing dry finish. Alcohol bite hardly noticed. Hey, the Elk Creek beer menu says it has Jabberwocky inducing tendencies so it must be good! (741 characters)
