The beer is copper in color with a nice foamy head on top of it. The head looks like soap foam. White head. The aroma is fruity (apple) with some peach notes. Nice aroma. Refreshing in the nose. In the mouth, I get some pepper notes, fruits. Light bitterness. Very good. There is a little bite at the end, that I really like. It's there in a subtle way but it is there. I like it a lot. Quite complex in the mouth. A chewy beer. A true sipper but so good it's dangerous. I could drink more than one, but the next day would be hard on the head :).

From a 750 ml bottle to a tulip.

This beer poured a lovely gold with a tinge of haze and a two finger head that had good retention. Excellent lacing was left behind as the I drank the beer. The smell is typical of a tripel, with yeast spices, sweet fruits and cloves being present. The taste is much better than anticipated, with the yeast and spices coming through up front and the sweet banana flavor ending the palate with a clove kicker. The feel is smooth and the carbonation is medium. The high 9.5 abv is hidden well.

BDT has always been hit and miss with me, but this beer is a definite hit. Wow, it is a damn nice take on a Belgian triple.

Special thanks to hoppypocket for sending this beer.

Created June 2009, Bottled April 23, 2012.

A: Pours a slightly hazy golden colour with 2 fingers of white head with some nice lacing along the sides of the glass.

S: Over ripe bananas, yeasty and buttery bread together with spices of pepper and cloves. End notes of alcohol esters suggestive of over ripe fruit. Overall it is rich and creamy.

T: Ripe bananas and candied orange peel, followed by brioche. Finishes with a slight alcohol heat. Mild notes of white pepper and cloves. Agree with notes on bottle suggesting reminiscent of Cointreau.

M: Thick, syrupy and coating. Extremely low carbonation and very smooth.

O: Buttery, rich and creamy, this is a comforting triple that isn't complicated, but is clean, precise and very enjoyable. Would definitely seek out again.

Bottle shared by a friend. From notes.

A - Cloudy golden pour with a one finger white head. No lace, no retention.

S - Rich. Wheat, sweet spice, banana.

Good carbonation, full body, and a sweet, dry finish.

O/D - Nice Tripel. Doesn't break the mold, but it was tasty. Drank more like a weizenbock and lacked the strong yeast character of a Tripel.

3.8/5  rDev -1.8%
look: 3 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Appearance: It has a nice cloudy golden/orange color to it. It has a thin bubbly white head that dies down quickly and leaves minimal lacing.

Smell: The aromas definitly give out hints of Belgian yeast, bready malts, spices, fruit and floral hops.

Taste: Like the aromas, it has some Belgian yeast along with citrus and banana, some spiciness, sweet bready malts and floral hops.

Mouthfeel: It has a low carbonation with a nice overall balance and feel.

Drinkability: It's a very smooth drinkable beer accompanied with good flavors and aromas.

Enjoyed on tap at the BDT brewpub. Above average mouthfee, caramel apparent. Lacey, yeasty Hits the style and middling for the style.Drinkable if you are having only one or two beers, as the sweetness, yeastiness, is filling.Alcohol more or less hidden. Bit of bannana.

Three Bridges pours a hazy yellow with orange hues in the light. It is topped with a frothy blecahed white cap. Pretty lace. Nose is of yeasty esters and fruit, very malty, quite spicy and floral. Tastes of sweet fruit, floral and herbal hops, very yeasty. Creamy mouthfeel, full bodied, but no hint of the ABV. Very good.

On tap at the brewpub: Poured an orangey color ale with a small foamy head. Aroma of fruity ester and light spicy yeast is interesting. Taste is a nice mix between some Belgian style malt with good notes of fruity ester and some light spicy yeast notes at the end. Body is full for style with good carbonation and no apparent alcohol. Very well done for early stage of the brewpub and something I will revisit again.
