Notes/Commercial Description:
In honor of Lucy Parsons, the wife of A.R., who was hanged for his involvement in the events of May 4th, 1886 just outside our front door. This huge Belgian strong golden ale is brewed with authentic Abbey ale yeast from one of the remaining Trappist breweries of Belgium and dry-hopped with 11 pounds of Saaz hops! A Haymarket twist to a Belgian classic!!!

poured from tap into glass. Pours a clear yellow/gold color with a small head.

Good aromas of spices, creams, and some citrus with a touch of florals. Lacking depth though.

full bodied, but really lacking on both the mid and back end. Some nice flavors of citrus and creams, but not much flavor going either.

this was forgettable. It's drinkable, but forgettable.

Serving type: on-tap

I found this to be a very good, well-rounded tripel, which I had on tap at Haymarket.

Gold, it has a nice white head steadily shrinking to a foamy ring, wisps, some lace.

Aroma was nice lightly raisiny golden fruits, grain, herb.

Taste was firm fruity - light banana - with herb and grain, fairly complex and very well-rounded and balanced.

(Served in a chalice)

A- This beer pours a slight hazy golden yellow with a thin snow white head that fades to a thick ring and is supported by a gentle carbonation of bubbles.

S- The dry apple skin have a fusel hint to them and a slightly sweet pils malt blends into a soft dry green hop finish.

T- The fusel alcohol hint takes on more of an apple cider note as the beer opens and a nice white cheese rind hint comes through in the finish. There is a fruity jam ester hint in the finish that compliments the dry green hop notes that linger for a moment.

M- the light mouthfeel has a gentle alcohol warmth and a soft fizz hint.

O- The slightly sweet malt with the fruity esters give this beer a bit of sweetness but the hops in the finish are just enough to off set that nicely. This beer taste young but very drinkable.

Served in a chalice-eque glass at the brewpub.

Another stop on the Second Annual Bachelor Party Free-For-All! This one pours a hazy sunset gold topped by a finger of off-white foam. The nose comprises sweet orange zest, banana, clove, and light Belgian candi sugar. The taste holds notes of lemon rind, orange zest, black pepper, clove, and grapefruit zest. Plenty of hops abound...in fact, too much in this regard for my tastes. Basically, a hoppy tripel. Hmm... The body is a light medium, with a light moderate carbonation and a dry finish. Overall, an alright beer, but something tells me tripels were not meant to be this hop-forward...
