A beer experience with a true distinction, our Triple wit is a unique bottle conditioned Belgian style ale. Made from two row barley, white wheat and rolled oats. To compliment the satiating taste only found by using a traditional top fermenting yeast, coriander and oranges are added. This addition during the brewing process lends to the delicate balance of flavors between the malt hops and yeast.

Bought a six month old four pack of this at neighborhood liquor store for $7.50. Went back and bought two more after trying!

A very tasty brew. I like this more than most tripels, which isn't my favorite style. Very mellow for a 9%er. Highly recommend if you can find it.

Draft pint in St. Louis at the Flying Saucer, another local offering.
Clear, orange gold with a thin, white head. Some minor retention and thin lace.
Smell is typical wit: yeast, spice, orange, wheat malts.
Taste is quite light, lots of orange peel and light peppery spice. Wheat malt, ends with a touch of banana. Alcohol remains well hidden.
Medium-bodied. Medium carbonation. Smooth, creamy mouth feel.
A pretty clean and refreshing tripel, lots of wit beer character.

Poured this one into a Duvel tulip, and the beer produces very little white head, and what is there goes away in a heart beat. The body is copper in color and is quite hazy.

The aroma is of orange, vanilla, corriander, and a mild rose trait.

Taste wise it's of vanilla, orange rind, slight original flavored bubble gum, and a mild metallic quality.

For a strong beer, this is medium in body, mildly carbonated, and not much of a warmth in the end. Goes down pretty smooth.

22oz brown bomber with no freshness date.

LOOK: Clear golden, good lacing

SMELL: Coriander, orange zest, faint phenols, yeast, herbal hops, esters, tropical fruit, earthy

TASTE: Strong corriander, smooth, whole crushed oranges, bready, chalky yeast, estery, medicinal herb, dry spicy finish

Was not sure at first but this ended up being pretty damn good. Nice smash up of the two styles and does not get cumbersome from spicing nor alcohol. Certainly worth a visit.

Poured from a bomber bottle into an Ommegang fluted glass.

appearance - 4.5/5 - Pours with a tiny head that disappears completely in about a minute. Beautiful golden color. You can read through the beer clearly. Lots of little bubbles floating from the bottom up.

smell - 5/5 - Strong aroma of citrus and coriander. Hint clove somewhere inbetween.

taste - 4.5/5 - Delicate sweet flavor followed by a relatively faint ester-y "Belgian flavor" and a hint of coriander. The more I drink, the more the clove esters become present.

mouthfeel - 5/5 - Given the alcohol level, it has a surprisingly light body with low-medium carbonation. Most of the flavors clear out upon swallowing leaving only a warm sweet residual flavor in the mouth.

overall - 5/5 - Quite an impressive Belgian brew that I can see me drinking again, but I think it will be quite accessible to non-beer drinkers who like "sweet stuff".

Pours an effervescent ( this is a beer Fred
Eckhart would love listening to ) & semi-hazed apricot with a pinky of cream colored head. Never clears up completely, minimal head retention & lacing

S: Orange peel & coriander, very rich, also grassy notes, some wispy boozey notes as well

T: Follows the nose, nice hints of honey, tangerine & orange syrup ( think canned mandarin orange, but not quite that sweet ) up front. Peppery yeast mingles with more orange & orange peel as this warms, some white pepper notes also, as well as more coriander. Finishes with orange peel bitterness, a touch of candy orange slice sweetness, more grassyness, a hint of pineapple juice, to include some acidity. One the verge of 4.5

MF: Medium bodied, semi-boozey edge, low carbonation, fairly smooth body from the oats added. You get a bit more boozey edge once this is warm.

A nice tripel with some interesting twists. This is well executed, recommended

Presentation: 22oz brown pop top w/attractive label and no date

Appearance: Cloudy orange-candy hue w/some yeast in suspension, poured so that this would have a large head, but it was completely gone before I'd even rinsed the bottle out.

Smell: Like a boozy Blue Moon...lots of vibrant, sweet orange, with a bit of boozy alcohol in the back, and some spicy coriander as well. Maybe a touch of light caramel malt.

Taste: More wit than tripel here; fairly hefty body, probably from the wheat and the oats. Lots of sweet, heavy orange and spicy coriander. This really is like a 'double' Blue Moon. The flavor is all amped-up wit, with the slight burn of a tripel. I'm not sure how I feel about this really. Light pale malt and a tiny touch of caramel in the background.

Mouthfeel: Fairly heavy and smooth

Overall: I'm not at all sure the whole 'double wit' thing works. This is the second take on the 'style' I've had and I just think that trying to 'imperialize' this kind of beer ruins all the things that make a traditional wit so great
