Left Hand Brewing St. Vrain Triple Ale filled my St. Bernardus goblet with a light gold color forming a white bubbly 1/2 finger head that vanished in no time to a foamy collar. The fine bubbles of carbonation rushed to the top of the goblet. The nose first noticed the sweet smell of candy sugar, followed by fresh green apples. The taste matches the smell with green grapes and a light dose of clove added which helps balance the sweetness. The body is a little lighter/thinner than what was expected. Mouth feel is a little sticky and the carbonation was just right for the style.

This is my first brew from Left Hand Brewing. While this is not my favorite triple I am sure impressed with St. Vrain.

Bottle shared by Jeff. Thanks man.

Golden body with an inch of white head. Aromas of yeast, floral hops, bread, alcohol, fruity esters. Cracked pepper and yeast with moderate sweetness. Warming finish. Decent, yet a definite notch below the tripels of Belgium.

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

appearance: Very clear light golden. Nice enough swath of white head on the pour that mostly recedes.
smell: Sweet and sour nose with bready malts and clove.
taste: Very nice melding of all the characteristics in the nose with an amazingly easy drinkability.
overall: Man, this is a pleasant surprise. Ratings are meh....maybe I'm a Philistine and aren't dinging this for being removed from a traditional Tripel but I just think it's a damn fine brew. This drinks like a small session beer, alcohol nearly imperceptible.
