Notes/Commercial Description:
For our 3rd Anniversary release we knew we had to pull out all the stops. Please welcome to the family… (512) THREE Belgian Style Tripel! Brewed in the spirit of the abbey ales of Belgium, (512) THREE pours a deep golden with a dense, creamy white head. The authentic Belgian yeast strain produces a complex, spicy palate that balances ripe fruity esters with bready malts and firm but subtle hops. Our house-made liquid invert sugar contributes an effervescent mouthfeel that finishes smooth and silky but enticingly dry, barely betraying its nearly 9.5% ABV/VOL!

On tap at Queen Vic in Houston, TX.

A: Pours a slightly hazy bright and vibrant golden/orange color. A two finger white head forms with excellent retention. Rings of sticky lace is left down the glass.
S: Fruity, estery yeast up front. Bananas and pears. Peppery spice with some phenols. Lightly sweet with some dry grassy hops as well. Love the aroma.
T: Follows the nose with some peppery, spicy, phenolic yeast. Fruity esters of banana and pears. Some hops, and a lingering sweetness.
M/D: A medium body that could have a bit more carbonation. Dry, clean, and smooth. So easy to drink. The alcohol is not noticeable at all. A great sipper.

An excellent Belgian Triple. This gives Real Ales Devils Backbone some competition. All Around excellent, and I hope 512 continues to make this because it is one of the best American made versions I have had.

Serving type: on-tap

Not the biggest fans of Triples, but I really enjoyed this one.

A: 2 fingered soapy white head with little retention topped this partly cloudy golden yellow brew. Bubbles continue to rise throughout the tasting.

S: Banana, some citrus notes, spices and herbs accompanied by belgian yeast.

T: Cloves and other spices are robust, but the fruity sweet backend really helped balance the brew.

M: Loads of carbonation, medium/light bodied with a slight burn from the booze.

O: A great beer for an anniversary.

Serving type: bottle

Very light on the aroma: mild wit, very light fruitiness.
Good strong Belgian triple flavors. Malty, fruity, with a very mild Belgian-style tartness. Mild hops with a more full bodied finish. A very nice Belgian Tripel with excellent flavors. A very enjoyable rendition. Now, give me a Brett infused version ;)

Poured into a sniffer at Freetail.

Appearance: Pours a hazy golden yellow with a white head about a centimeter thick that clings to the side of the glass and leaves a thin lacing over the top of the beer.

Aroma: Spicy and yeasty with hints of coriander, clove, and citrus.

Taste: Spicy, earthy, and slightly citrusy.

Mouthfeel: Medium body with medium carbonation.

Overall: I normally don't care for Tripels, but I actually enjoyed this one a lot and could see myself drinking more of these.

Had this on tap at the Holy Grail after work. Good beer selection and good food. The THREE is very (512). Solid beer that's hard to complain about. I'm not sure that I'd clamor for them to make this again, but I'd order it over a lot of beers if it was around.

The beer is a hazy straw color. I always have a hard time judging a beer unless I pour it myself... Still, this doesn't stand out to me in any way.

The nose is banana upon first whiff. Much more than I expected. Further approaches find some booze, wheat and black pepper. I'd call it solidly bold.

The taste is banana, but that's matched by an aggressive wheat/straw flavor. The spices come last and round out the beer. The spices are clove and pepper according to my palate.

The THREE is very drinkable and solid. Let's leave it at that.
