330 mL Belgian stubby with a notched date on the label; brewed with three malts and three hops. A big gusher here, and no subsequent hope of proper decanting. It is frothy and highly carbonated, with a yellowed gold hue and a bone-white head that leaves lots of lacing. Pleasant aroma yields pale malt, yeast (orange and papaya), and a touch of hops. Similar flavor, with earthy yeast, fruit, green/spicy hops and noticeable alcohol riding a medium to full, highly carbonated body. Perhaps not very much like a tripel, but it is pleasant enough and easy to drink.

Poured from a bottle into a glass. This one has a nice bubbly head with some decent lacing. The color is a hazy yellow/orange with a nice sweet smell. The smell of fruit comes to mind when you inhale. The taste is bubbly with a little bite that could be smoother. I will probably like this more as I drink it. Enjoy.

We pour a brew of cidery, golden brown caramel. It holds a one and a half finger tall head of creamy white bubbles, showing okay retention, but nice reproducibility. Lacing is ridged, corded, and patterned, lying thick around the glass. Thick haze cuts clarity, but no sediment is noted. Carbonation appears to be active, comprised of near microscopic bubbles. The nose smells of rice and corn tortillas, adjuncty metallics, refried beans, heavy banana and bubblegum ester sweetness, orange peel citrics, lightly salted butterscotch, fusel vodka booziness, shoe polish chemical bite, golden Belgian yeast, and pale and cheaply wheaty malts. Our first impression is that the malt bill is rather cheap and adjuncty, taking significant legitimacy away from its representation of the style. As we sip, the flavor opens with Belgian yeast, sweet Belgian and dry German wheatiness, white rice, celery, butterscotch sweetness, apple cider and lemon juiciness, and massive tinny metallics. The middle comes to a peak with warming, fusel booze, white sugar, adjuncty wheaty grain, green apple acetaldehyde character, sunflower nectar florals, black pepper and cinnamon spice, dirty cloven phenols, floral potpourri, and vanilla buttercream cupcake icing. The end washes through with vodka, lemon hand wipes, chalk, Mott’s apple juice, red wine dryness, continued adjuncts of rice and stark aluminum metallics, bubblegum esters, browned banana bread, sour yeasty twang, tin, popcorn salts and butters, and whole grain bread crust. The aftertaste breathes of honey cloy, gravel, mineral water, adjuncts, wheat table crackers, straw, white sugar, heavy Belgian malt mash albeit cheap filler grain, dry paper towels, corn flour, and vinyl plastics. The body is medium but chewy enough, and the carbonation is medium to high, with pleasant prickle. Each sip gives full slurp, smack, cream, and froth. The mouth is left fully coated and foamed, with mild pucker secondary to the booze and to the metallics. The abv is fine, but the beer drinks on the slower, sipper side.

Overall, the strongest component of this beer was its appearance, followed by its aroma. Really, we found great trouble with this one. The flavors and aromas are cloyingly sweet, so much so that the centerpiece grain is mocked and burdened by the accessory ingredients. While there is fleeting semblance to the style, again, this drive is lost, and you are left with sweaty, adjuncty echoes across your palate and your memory. It is always fun to try a new brew for us from a new brewery, but other than that, it is hard to get excited about anything this tripel has to offer.

A: Golden filtered, tones of carbonation, 3 fingers of white foamy head, great retention, nice lacing.

S: Skunk, malt, smells surprisingly like an AA Lager to me. Oregano oil. Some phenols coming through, but really, I am wondering if I got duped, and hoping the taste will surprise me. A bit of tropical fruits like pineapple on the 5th sniff.

T: Okay, there it is. Phenols galore, light candy sugar, first I am more reminded of a Belgian Strong Pale Ale rather than a Tripel, Duvel comes to mind, some Belgian yeasts, then a rusty metallic flavour comes in and lingers near the end. Some tropical fruits, again pineapple.

M: Medium light somewhat syrupy body, tones of large bubbly carbonation. Relatively dry.

O: Like the taste which surpasses the smell. Okay look, love the bottle, and love that it’s a definite Belgian displayed in the foamy head and in the taste. Definitely not up to par with other Tripels like the Trappists and abbeys’.

Smell: ginger and lemongrass

Taste: extremely effervescent with huge hits of green apples and champagne with a cantaloupe aftertaste

Very simply flavors that a reminiscent of a Sunday brunch mixed drink however, I am a huge fan of odd beers and this one definitely has a place in my mind as being one of the curiosities.

I actually paired this with an everything omelette with sharp cheddar, breakfast potatoes, fresh fruit, and bacon--always bacon
