I became a HUGE Belgian beer fan after my first sip of the Triple Voodoo Inception. I purchased the beer at first because of the great logo and then enjoyed the 22 oz bottle for it's smell, taste and color. I also enjoyed the higher alcohol level!!! I went back to Whole Food's to stock up and bought them out. I cannot recommend the Triple Voodoo Inception enough. Enjoy! Cheers!

A - Slight haze. Carmel orange color.

S - Bananas. Citrus. Candied sugars.

T - Bananas. Sharp hop bitter. Orange zest. Bubble gum. Sweet candied sugar.

M - Sharp. Good bitterness.

O - An amazing take on a Belgian. A classic and clean Belgian style with a west coast hop profile. A beautiful marriage. Will definitely be drinking again.

A stellar effort from this tiny San Francisco brewer (brewed in Belmont at Devils Canyon).

This could be considered a San Francisco interpretation of a Belgian trippel, a bit more hop presence, almost its own style

Best enjoyed in a Triple Voodoo tulip glass (scored during the Kaleidoscope event for SF Beer Week 2012*)

Nice amber-gold color, slightly cloudy, perfect head, nice drinkable smooth flavor; creamy, sweet, a touch of fruit, noticeable hops.

Will have it again soon

*Note: Triple Voodoo also concocted a delicious white IPA for the opening party of SFBW

A-

22oz into a tulip. Pours a fully hazed mid tone orange, minor orange cream head, ok lacing.

Aroma is sweet yeasty citrus and assorted fruits including white skinned grapes. Nice

Fairly sweet barely dry tiny pepper. From start to finish this smoothly evolves within a well selected narrow range. Trails off into a pleasant mild bitter. Warms well. Tastes as if darker. Medium bodied creamy mouthfeel. Tasty, quite nice.
cheers

Got this on tap at Toronado. I've had it at the Rogue Public House in SF a while ago about a week after they made their "Debut", but i don't remember it too well (aside from the fact that I thought it was a pretty alright triple).

It pours a nice golden amber color. It's not quite as light a normal triple, but it had a tinge of amber to it that makes it quite a good color. The head was quite thick when it was poured but by the time I'd walked away from the bar the head had dissipated.

I tried and tried and I couldn't get a good smell from it. Got almost nothing. Perhaps my fault. Perhaps the overwhelming stale beer smell of Toronado.

This is the fruitiest triple I've ever had. It's like fruit salad in a beer, but in a good way. There is a tinge of spiciness that reminds me a lot of peach cobbler. There no alcohol to be found and I could drink tons of this at once. This beer is a touch thick with little carbonation. Again, making it easy to drink lots of.

Overall this is a pretty damned good triple. If this were offered in a reasonably priced six pack I would buy lots of it. However, I feel that it couldn't be bottled in a normal 750 ml bottle because the flavor just isn't complex enough to warrant taht.

Poured into a tulip glass to a half inch head of beige foam that starts out leaving some sticky lacing but dissipates within several minutes to a ring leaving less lacing. Clear orange gold body.

Smells of sweet malt, Belgian candi sugar, a little butterscotch, citrus fruit, and spice.

Tastes of sweet bready malt and candi sugar with some ginger/coriander spice, balanced by orange hops, and some butterscotch in the back palate. The yeast seems a good belgian variety with earthiness and a little metal. The finish remains sweet but is balanced by a light orange-hop bitterness as well as a bit of green tea.

Body is medium, and carbonation is medium, producing a nice creamy mouthfeel.

Definitely a good drinkable tripel, well hopped with an orange hop variety (guessing Citra and/or Cascade) that is a bit on the sweet side like many tripels are, but not cloying as some can be. It's good to see California brewers using west coast hops effectively with Belgian styles other than IPA. This is their first bottled beer to my knowledge, so a pretty good first at-bat.

A - Served a slightly hazy golden-orange color with a finger of frothy white head atop. The head fades away eventually leaving behind some spots of lace.

S - Aroma is a mix of banana/yeast character and some spices including cardamom and coriander. There is also just a bit of lemon and fruity esters in the background.

T - Starts off with a mix of Belgian yeast and banana flavor with some spices mixed in (lots of cardamom and coriander). Through the middle a bit stronger spices come through with some fruity esters and lemon flavor. The finish is a mix of yeast and spices and just tastes slightly muddled.

M - Medium-full bodied with moderate carbonation. The beer feels fairly smooth and crisp. The finish is yeasty and a bit funky and even a touch bready.

D - Very drinkable. Not quite perfectly balanced and at times tastes/feels a bit muddled. However, it is a pretty good American style Tripel with some good yeast and spice character.

A: Pours a relatively clear amber with a surprisingly small amount of off-white head. What's there retains reasonably well, especially a rim around the edge of the glass, leaving nice (but not sticky) sheets of lacing.

S: Smells like a tripel - deep sweetness, clove and the standard Belgian spices, though slightly modified, as I seem to notice a hint of allspice as well.

T: Sweet and full. It gets a bit muddled towards the rear of the palate, kind of a woody, grainy, and nearly astringent mix. The overall flavor is nice, though, and that one bit doesn't detract much if you don't focus on it while trying to describe it. The alcohol is pretty much unnoticeable, so this is a sneaky one.

M: Fairly full body, low carbonation though prickly on the tip of the tongue.

Overall this is pretty good. Apparently it's reasonably priced (I got it as part of a monthly club so I'm not sure how reasonably), and it'd make a pretty decent standby tripel if that's the case.

Pours a hazy golden color with a medium white head that lingers for a bit. Scent is that of a typical Belgian tripel. Nice golden hoppiness with some zesty spices. A hint of coriander with pepper and Belgian yeast. Taste is just as it smell. A bit more earthy than nose would imply. Mouthfeel is medium bodied, with a nice dry finish. Drinkability is high. Overall, not the best example of a Belgian-style tripel, but it did impress me for the first bottling of a beer from this brewery. I would definitely buy another one of these.
