A strong, full bodied Belgian-abbey style ale. An authentic Belgian yeast strain is used in fermentation that contributes a rich array of spicy, phenolic, and fruit-like flavors and noticeable alcoholic warmth. Two row pilsener malt an dmalted red wheat contributes to the lingering sweetness which is balanced by a moderate addition of imported European hops. This unfiltered ale has an irresistible pale orange-colored hazy glow and an appealing thick mousse-like head.

    A pale, clear golden yellow color with a very thin head and virtually no lacing. The flavor was fruity sweet - almost too sweet for my personal taste, but a very good beer.

    Pours a beautiful yellow-golden with a fairly thick white head. Aroma is not strong but malty and rather fruity, mainly apple or pear. Malty flavor has a firm undertone of fruit, almost like a ribbon of cider through the beer. Texture is pleasingly smooth and quite tingly and jazzy.

    This, like every Stoudts that I tried, is a primo A-B+ rated beer. The aroma and flavor is yeasty, which I'm not the biggerst fan of. Otherwise I would have rated this a bit higher. Pours a faded orange/copper color with light carbonation and medium head. In addition to the yeast, the smell is fruit and a bit like perfume (maybe thats the cloves and/or spices?) Tastes slightly hoppy, a little bit on the sweeter side, traces of yeast, spices, malts. Has a nice kick and meant for sipping.

    A strong alcoholic drink. Cloudy orange-yellow body heavy with carbonation. The head is thick and frothy. It holds up really well. The aroma combines yeast, alcohol and spices like cloves. The taste is more sweet than sour but the alcohol adds a dryness in the aftertaste. Very good venture into the Abbey’s without actually being there.

    Not as good as the Triples I've had from Belgium but a pretty good attempt at one. Pours an orange color topped with a thin head. Some lacing ends up on the glass but appearance wise it just doesn't look as good as some of the Belgian Triples. The aroma is quite strong with banana, citrus and vanilla and all of it appearing to be quite sweet. Flavor starts with a spicy citrus flavor with a yeasty wheaty taste mixed in then turns slightly sour and alcoholic. It does seem a little like a stronger Hefeweizen but it's a tad too sweet. The texture is rich and syrupy but I'd like a fuller, better balanced mouthfeel. Overall it's a good beer but it's hard to rate it any higher when there are so many better options in the style.

    Bottle from SL. The pour was hazy golden in color, initial head that faded quickly. The aroma was firm strong bananas and cloves, wheaty elements, like a hefeweizen. The flavor was rich and full hefe, imperial hefe-like, a little too sweet for my likings, although the body was thick or syrupey. I also wanted some saaz action, but maybe I'm wanting too much.

    Is it odd that a tripel would have less alky than the dubbel? These american abbey tripel imitations really make the Abbey Tripel style quite common. The abbey tripels come in two types; the in your face and the refined gentle. This one is the in your face. Cannot hold a candle to Grimbergen Blonde or Chimay White. From a growler that was filled at the Beer Store in Moon. Sweet strong ale aroma, big foamy head. Initial palate is flat, no carbonation. Very alcoholic. A little rude and unrefined. Color is off yellow and I think I can see some haze. If not, I’ll see some haze after this growler is gone. Finish is lingering volatile alcohol. Sometimes I think many american tripels should be reclassified as malt liquor.

    Beer pours crystal clear, nice white head, no lacing. Aroma of dry apple and cloves. Flavor was fruity sweet, with a little spices. Moderate carbonation. Good beer from Stoudts!

    Bottle courtesy of Adrian910ss: Poured a medium golden color ale with a small white bubbly head with minimal retention. Aroma of sweet malt with some alcohol. Taste is way too sweet for the style with some warming alcohol which didn’t really fit in there. Body was about average with some medium to low carbonation. Overall, I thought this beer was definitely off the style and way too sweet with some burning alcohol.
