4.15/5  rDev -0.7%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

On tap at the brewpub, 3/3/12.

Pours a relatively dark orange golden color with a large white head and nice lace. Warming and boozy sugary sweet aroma with potent peppery spice and light hops. Flavor is fruiter and spicier than the nose with the candi sugar taking a back seat. A slight, dry hoppy finish produces a clean, refreshing finish. Medium bodied, soft and creamy, moderate carbonation. An adequate, if forgettable triple.

Hazy light orange color with a fine creamy head that dies down and leave a bit of lacing.

Spicy nose with coriander, citrus and toast. Similar flavors with an overall chalky character. A bit heavy - not at all bright or sparkly like some tripels.

Full bodied with very light carbonation. Overall, this tripel seems to be bogged down in its size a bit. Tasty enough and a good foil for the soft pretzel with spicy mustard.

Served on-tap at the brewpub.

A - Pours hazy golden yellow with a small film of white head, dissipating down to a light film, leaving no lace at all down the glass.

S - Smells of candied sugar, fruity belgian yeast, citric fruit, light spice and some green apples. There is quite a bit of alcohol burn on the nose once it warms up.

T - Starts off with a ton of sugary sweetness slowly giving way to hints of citric fruit, green apples, belgian yeast and some dulled spice. Quite a bit of alcohol comes through as it warms up. Finish is pretty sweet, lingering for some time after consumption.

M - Medium body and flavor with moderate carbonation. Sweet, soft feel with quite a bit of residual sweetness clinging to the pallet long after consumption.

O - I have had this one quite a few times before and it was much better than this score would indicate. I will have to revisit this one in the future and give it another chance.

Pours a bright golden color with a thick fluffy white head, that stays throughout most of the beer.

The scent is of citrus, yeast, and belgian sugars.

The taste is of very sweet sugars, lemon, yeast, and a noticeable alcohol presence.

Medium bodied, crisp and smooth, moderate carbonation.

I really enjoyed this beer, very good flavor and very easy to drink.

3.9/5  rDev -6.7%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Poured from the growler into a tulip glass.

A body of brass yellow slight orb glowing but a fourteen carat gold appearance. Rising cola large bubble carbonation. Head is white and tight but only grows so large. No lacing at all.

Nose is mild small candi sense, and malt. A standard tripel but also not particularly boozy either. Looking for a little more action here but this is alright.

Taste brings small apple sweetness, a mix of honey and sugar, gentle palate feeling. Texture brings some light malt and hint of little alcohol.

Overall pretty basic for a tripel but still a solid beer and enjoyable.

I rarely leave the Selinsgrove Brewpub without finishing on a glass of the excellent Trippel

Served in a tulip style glass, a slightly hazy yellow, with a thin head, which maintains through most of the tasting. Carbonation is thin, seeming to rise up from only the center of the glass.

The aroma gets the mouth watering, yeasty, sugary, a whiff of the booze. Taste does not disappoint. Very well balanced. Have to respect the 8.5abv, but it's hard not to take this one on, so tasty. (The used to only allow 2 of these per customer, but now 3)

Overall, an excellent Trippel, and my favorite SBP offering. The missus even bought me a growler to take on home. Life is good.

look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A - A slight pure white colored creamy head... A vibrant bright yellow color... An undeniable haze permeates... Limited carbonation throughout...

S - Lemon scented Luden's cough drops... Pinneapple... Mango... Some faint notes of honey... Candied sugars... A faint whiff of Belgian yeast...

T - An interesting array of flavors... Lemon zest... A bit of pineapple... Some candied sugars... Muted banana... A muted spiciness... Some wheat like notes...

M - On the fuller side of medium bodied... Dense and a bit sturdy... Surprisingly syrupy... A bit on the thick side of the equation... Light carbonation...

D - A bit thicker and sweeter than I expect for the style... Formidable none the less... The 9% ABV is fairly well hidden...
Rather satisfying...

First visit to Selin's Grove and really liked the place. The Triple was poured into a goblet and had a nice light orange/dark gold appearance with a frothy off white head two fingerwidths high. Smell has some typically banana, clove, spicy esters, along with a little bit more alcohol than I expected. Taste is what I expect in a triple, little bit more sugar and warm booziness than in some other triples I enjoy. All in all a strong representation of the style.

I got this on tap at the brewpub after freezing my nuts off that morning at Troegs Splinter Black day.

A: Poured a cloudy, golden, almost orange color with bubbles shooting up from the bottom and a nice finger wide white head.

S: Candy sugar, Belgian yeast, and tons of Belgian funk. It almost had kind of a "Sweet Tart" type of sizzle.

T: Same as the nose, but even more candy-like. This sugar definitely wasn't of the organic fruit variety, but of the dime store yummy junk food one.

M: The ABV was extremely well hidden and the carbonation was nice, if somewhat muted. Sweet, but definitely not too.

D: If Willy Wonka were to make a Belgian Tripel, this might be what it would taste like.
