Style: Belgian Tripel

Notes / Commercial Description:
Three Fates is gold in color, highly carbonated with a dense white head that lasts. The mouthfeel is full but not heavy. The aroma is spicy and floral, with a hint of hops. The flavor is complex ­ this beer is fairly dry for it’s ABV but has a blend of spicy notes and fruity esters ­ there are hints of clove and light fruits aside the bready malt flavor. This beer is made with a special Belgian yeast strain that helps give this unique flavor profile. The hop finish is mild but present­ noble hops help balance the other flavors to make this a very drinkable beer. The 9% ABV is well hidden, so be careful!

750 ml bottle into a tulip glass. Had 5/13/17.

Pours a hazy golden color, with a two inch foamy head and lots of creamy lacing. Belgian yeast, light malt, cloves, banana, other spices, a very grainy/wheaty aroma. Very appealing. The taste also begins with the Belgian yeast, then malt, wheat/grain , dried biscuit, cloves, spices- less intense than the nose, light vanilla and caramel. Smooth, creamy, a great body for the style, well carbonated.

Great flavor and aroma, solid from top to bottom. Very classic, although the graininess is a nice twist to that. Definitely well worth a purchase.

Review from BeerAdvocate magazine issue #113 (JUN 2016)

Authentic, Drinkable, Warm, Clean
A fancy bottled Belgian out of Florida, this big, bubbly Tripel throws down an epic crispness with warmth in tow. Dry maltiness, peppery clove-like spiciness, juicy ripe pear, taffy and a chalky, nutty yeast character lead the tastebuds on quite the journey. The alcohol is noticeable but restrained enough to keep me coming right back. Clearly someone did their homework, Three Fates is not your typical stab at the style ... this rivals its European counterparts. [Jason]
