I'm not the biggest fan of tripels, but I enjoyed this beer. I bought it at a gas station out of their walk-in cooler.
This beer had a good head on it and was preserved its flavor well. (I bought a liter and nursed on it for a little while.) It was a little bit on the sweet side for me but I'd order if I found it at a bar.

served on-tap @ The Alcove, Tuscaloosa, AL, into a pint glass

Pours a vibrant orange color. Hazy yet bright at the same time. 1.5 fingers of white head stick around for a long time, lacing in clumps. This is a nice looking beer.

I can smell the yeast strain similarities between this beer and Avondale's Saison. But things seem more reigned in and refined in this Tripel. There's lots of candied orange, for starters. A moderate amount of spice. It smells at once strong and refreshing.

The taste follows the nose, but somehow is stronger. A bit too much orange, and a bit too much candi sugar sweetness and a bit too much clove/cardamom. It causes the back of my mouth to pucker, as if this beer were tangy. But these negatives are slight. It's still tasty and still nice to sip on a Spring/Summer day.

Like most American takes on Belgian styles, the mouthfeel lacks the proper effervescence. But Miss Fancy comes close. The beer's size -- in terms of thickness -- gets in the way a bit. But again, these are reasons why the beer isn't excellent. It's a fine beer. Overall, this is Avondale's best year-round beer. This tripel indicates a brewery that will soon come into their own. A fine effort.
