Great Sweet taste with a light alcohol finish. You can really key in on the flavor of the honeysuckle notes and the bold robust finish that you usually find in darker stouts.

I believe this is the first triple that I’ve ever had. Yes, I’m a novice. Ordered a Freaky Deaky on draft at the Alamo Drafthouse in Dallas last week and loved it. Picked some cans up tonight and poured into a mug. Not as good as the draft but still extremely good. Very fruity with a kind of firm feel in the mouth. Golden color with a little bit of a head. Not really very much in the smell department but overall a very good beer and a good way to end the night.

I had this on draught at a pizza restaurant here in Dallas and I thought it was pretty good but it is far from my favorite Tripel.

Look: golden clear with a thin white head

Aroma: bread, wheat, yeast, banana

Taste: The flavor is wheat, yeast, coriander and banana, a bitter grapefruit rind like hop bite at the end, a bit boozy, but overall pretty good.

Body/Overall: medium body, silky

Clear golden ale with a medium sized white colored head.

Smells strongly spicy both from coriander and hops. Some honeysuckle malt scent. scents of cardamom and black pepper.

Starts out sweet and woody with a sharp hop bite in the after taste. Strong coriander bite. Distinctly one of the heaviest hopped beers of its style. Defiantly getting near Belgian IPA hop levels.

Mouthfeel is OK.

Overall an OK Tripel but there are better,

Poured from the can into a tulip glass.

Golden light brass body with very nice clarity. White head, basic, about two fingers, with a fine soapy ring of lace and a fairly good sized puck.

Very fruity nose, almost comes off as raspberry strangely, with touches of mild sucrose, and a bit of tropical notes possibly. A bit odd but kind of neat.

Interesting palate. Chewy body, with a bit of an alcohol kick. Controlled but boozy fruit like qualities and a little fussel like flavor. Slight touch of hoppy character, and lighter body, less malt presence than anticipated.

An interesting flavor for a tripel but the alcohol is a little to present and even a bit burning for the brew.

There must be some inconsistency in the product. Got a 4 pack out of a can from Central Market. Smells of stale Natural Ice. Tastes just like it sounds - the bitterness of a double IPA (with too little of the bright citrus to make it good) mixed with the yeast of a Belgian (with too little of the banana and coriander you'd expect). It seems like the worst of both worlds. I've had better Belgian / IPA fusions from basically every national megabrewer that has made one. I'll revise the review after trying another tomorrow. My first inclination was to trash the other 3 cans. But I'll give it a second chance.

Mouthfeel is a little off and it does not do a good job of masking the alcohol.

First had poured from 12-oz. can, delivered by friend, into snifter. A "Belgian Tripel brewed with American hops," according to the can, it would be more accurate to call this a Belgian Double IPA.

On draft at the Londoner, Colleyville. Very nice color. Golden beauty. Smells delicious. Tastes great. Got some orange in there. Alcohol is well hidden for a 10 percenter. Has decent lacing and goes down smoothly. I think I'll have another one and make sure I like it. Cheers y'all!

Poured from a can into an OHB tulip with a nice white head that left some lacing. Very floral nose and typical of Belgian trips. What a nice surprise thought. While most breweries focus on pale ales and IPA's, it's nice to see one that can make an excellent Belgian Triple. This has become my favorite go to beer. Extremely drinkable and will sneak up on you before you know it. A great American example of my European favorite.

Pours a cloudy light yellow gold color with white head. Belgian yeast, wheat, sweet malts, spice, and some cereal on the nose; follows onto the palate. Medium bodied, and the 10% is well hidden. Finishes with yeast, sweetness, and very much like a true Belgian Tripel. Solid.
