BEER INFO

Brewed by:

Style: Tripel

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 9.50%

Availability: Limited (brewed once)

Notes / Commercial Description:
For our 3rd Anniversary release we knew we had to pull out all the stops. Please welcome to the family… (512) THREE Belgian Style Tripel! Brewed in the spirit of the abbey ales of Belgium, (512) THREE pours a deep golden with a dense, creamy white head. The authentic Belgian yeast strain produces a complex, spicy palate that balances ripe fruity esters with bready malts and firm but subtle hops. Our house-made liquid invert sugar contributes an effervescent mouthfeel that finishes smooth and silky but enticingly dry, barely betraying its nearly 9.5% ABV/VOL!

Had on tap at Major League Grill in Beaumont, TX.

Poured a hazy golden honey with a finger of bright white head.

Light and sweet. Bananas, apples and some spice. Belgian yeast as well with some grains and or wheat in the background.

Taste is very light & fruit forward along with some banana... Reminds me of a more alcohol forward Hef. some nice spices in the back along with a nice wheat flavor.

Medium body with a moderate amount of carbonation. Sweet tongue coating aftertaste.

Overall, this was a nice beer. Nothing to complain about, but not much to brag about either. Easy to drink and pretty refreshing for the high abv. Worth trying if you see it on tap.

On tap at the Flying Saucer in Fort Worth.

The beer pours a slightly hazy golden color with a large white head. The aroma is wheat and grain with some Belgian yeast notes mixed in. I also get a little orange citrus in the aroma.

The flavor is a mix of wheat, biscuit malt and grain with some banana and spice notes. I also get a little bit of citrus and some Belgian yeast. The alcohol is noticeable but not overwhelming.

Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

Had this on tap at the Holy Grail after work. Good beer selection and good food. The THREE is very (512). Solid beer that's hard to complain about. I'm not sure that I'd clamor for them to make this again, but I'd order it over a lot of beers if it was around.

The beer is a hazy straw color. I always have a hard time judging a beer unless I pour it myself... Still, this doesn't stand out to me in any way.

The nose is banana upon first whiff. Much more than I expected. Further approaches find some booze, wheat and black pepper. I'd call it solidly bold.

The taste is banana, but that's matched by an aggressive wheat/straw flavor. The spices come last and round out the beer. The spices are clove and pepper according to my palate.

The THREE is very drinkable and solid. Let's leave it at that.

Cloudy straw colored pour with lots of carbonation and minimal head. Very yeasty flavor upfront. Cloves and banana are the first flavors that hit. Has some lemon and grainy bread in the medium body as well. Finishes a little sweet and has some yeasty flavors in the aftertaste. Really nice tripel.
