First time on tap @ TD October 2012. LOVED it as I am a huge trippel fan. Told it was not sold in bottles....yet. Found today at Whole Foods in C'bus Ohio. BAM!

Golden colour with a creamy head. Sediment particles sink float to the bottom of my
glass.

The fruity malted fragance tells me I am about to have a quality Belguim.

DANG! Bottled version does NOT lack. Forgot how much I enjoy this excellent trippel.

Balanced with carbonation & flavour. Feel like I just won the lottery with this lovely brew.

Thirsty Dog has created an outstanding trippel. Pass it on.

Cerberus Belgian Tripel brewed by Thirsty Dog Brewing Company, with an ABV of 10.00% This brew pours out a cloudy amber color with a nice white head. The head to this brew sticks around for awhile. Cerberus Belgian Tripel is an unfiltered brew you can not see though it. Now I'm not saying that is a bad thing . The smell is rich with citrus, grains, and malts. There are some nice hop smells in this brew. You will also pick up on a nice sweetness in the smell of this brew. It puts you in the mind set of fruits not citrus but very tropical. The taste is bold with flavors. There is a lot going on in this brew. Also a nice amount of lacing to this brew. First you pick up on the smooth, bold citrus, and the fruit sweetness. Then the smoothness of grains and malts. There is also some nice hop notes in the taste of this brew. Cerberus Belgian Tripel is a well balanced brew, nothing overpowering about this brew at all. For being this complex , this brew goes down smooth. It is really hard to pick up on the 10.00% ABV in this brew. Everything thing about this brew is good. There is no bad aftertaste. Just smooth fruity goodness. The mouth feel of Cerberus Belgian Tripel is Bold, Rich, Citrus, Fruity, and Refreshing. I really like how this brew is kinda different from most brews on the market. Thirsty Dog Brewing Company did a real nice job with this brew. Overall I'm giving Cerberus Belgian Tripel a 4.75 out of 5. I would highly recommend this brew, I would also buy this brew again.

Thirsty Dog is not a brewery that I would normally associate with Belgian styles, but they hit the nail on the head with this beer - Fluffy, a touch fizzy with ample malt tinged with Red Delicious apple notes. Yeast and candy sugar waft in the wake. Cleans up nicely at the finish. Overall, a well-executed beer.
