Brewed by:
(512) Brewing Company
Texas, United States

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!

On tap at Queen Vic in Houston, TX.

A: Pours a slightly hazy bright and vibrant golden/orange color. A two finger white head forms with excellent retention. Rings of sticky lace is left down the glass.
S: Fruity, estery yeast up front. Bananas and pears. Peppery spice with some phenols. Lightly sweet with some dry grassy hops as well. Love the aroma.
T: Follows the nose with some peppery, spicy, phenolic yeast. Fruity esters of banana and pears. Some hops, and a lingering sweetness.
M/D: A medium body that could have a bit more carbonation. Dry, clean, and smooth. So easy to drink. The alcohol is not noticeable at all. A great sipper.

An excellent Belgian Triple. This gives Real Ales Devils Backbone some competition. All Around excellent, and I hope 512 continues to make this because it is one of the best American made versions I have had.

Not the biggest fans of Triples, but I really enjoyed this one.

A: 2 fingered soapy white head with little retention topped this partly cloudy golden yellow brew. Bubbles continue to rise throughout the tasting.

S: Banana, some citrus notes, spices and herbs accompanied by belgian yeast.

T: Cloves and other spices are robust, but the fruity sweet backend really helped balance the brew.

M: Loads of carbonation, medium/light bodied with a slight burn from the booze.

O: A great beer for an anniversary.
