I had this on tap at the brewpub.

Comes a cloudy peach/apricot color, with a one finger head of white foam that quickly falls to islands and a ring. No lacing on the glass.

Aroma is of pineapples, bubblegum, that funky/earthy Belgium yeast smell we all love, and alcohol.

Flavor is of pineapples, mangoes, sweet syrupy malts and unfermented sugars. Big time heat from alcohol. I'm only having one of these! There is, surprisingly, plenty of hop bitterness to balance all this, and indeed herbal/grassy hop flavor as well. There is so much going on here, it's tough to describe it all.

Mouthfeel is hot/sweet, kind of like habenero pepper jelly, medium carbonation, and a tongue searing heat from alcohol.

For the style, I guess you'd have to say it's a highly drinkable, delicious tripel. But don't be driving, or even walking too far, because you will be in trouble!

This is another hit from the folks at Selin's Grove or should it be in Selinsgrove. The Tripel unfortunately is a seasonal brew so you can be disappointed on a number of visits. It is a beautiful, hazy golden color with a huge white head. The smell is hoppy and fruity at the same time. There is citrusy aroma under the hoppiness. The taste is a really well balanced Tripel with a great taste of malt, quickly replaced by hops, and then finally rounded off with a sweetness and an alcohol kick. It is a little thin in the mouth and with the high alcohol content, two is my limit.

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.

This beer poured with a golden straw color with two-three fingers of white head that left a nice lace. The aroma of this beer has a strong fruit characteristic with bananas being able to be discern, it also smelled of yeast and had a strong smell of hops. The alcohol content of this beer is cleverly hidden in the sweet malt taste mixed with fruit and ending with the taste of hops. This beer is very well balanced and is one of my favorites.
