Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: BeerAdvocate on 12-23-2003

Six Months of aging brings a soft smoothness to this sweet, complex ale. The result is a “sipping beer” that doesn’t seem like one. By this we mean that Legend Tripel is a deceptively strong beer to be shared with friends and family in celebration and moderation. Legend Tripel is brewed on a Belgian abbey style yeast strain which imparts combinations including banana, clove, apple, pear, even bubblegum. Serve with mild cheeses, roasted pork or turkey.

First had: on tap at Legend

Tripels are probably my least favorite style of beer, so I usually approach with caution. This one was not bad. Hazy light amber pour with a small white head. Aroma of pale malts, Belgian yeast, light fruity esters, Bazooka Joe. Taste of pale malts, candi sugar, Belgian yeast, pear, banana, green pepper. Light-medium body, and okay overall. Nothing I'd go back for.

I have had several good American Tripels. This is one of them, Pours a hazy golden amber color into my Chimay goblet. Delicately bubbly white head, average retention for a Tripel, no lacing to speak of.

Aroma has all the basics. Light fruit, grapes and pears, cloves, pepper, a little candi sugar and good Belgian yeast.

Tastes very good. The light fruit from the aroma is joined by some banana in the taste. Sweetness is up front. Spices are just right.

Tripels are known for hiding the alcohol behind a rich smoothness. This one is no exception. A little alcohol burn...very mild. The rest is a sweet, spicy, yeasty delight.

Very good take on a Tripel. I would drink this one again, any time.

Poured out of a bottle into a snifter.
A: pours yellow-amber with a moderate head. Saved the last to collect the yeast. Nice and cloudy with a little carbonation.
S: smells sweet but not overpowering. Some banana.
T: starts sweet and full but ends with some zip, some tang.
M: smooth, some lingering light bitterness.
O: I really like this beer. The high ABV doesn't come through when drinking. Will probably hit me later. Very nice belgian style.
