Review: Stoudt's Triple (Belgian Abbey-Style Ale)

Stoudt's Triple (Belgian Abbey-Style Ale) from Stoudts Brewing Co.
Rating: B

Appearance: light honey color, nice head that fades to a thin film that sticks around. Appears to be highly carbonated. No lacing.

Smell: spicy, belgian candi, phenols, alcohol. Lighter in yeast character than its European cousins.

Taste: sweet, but well balanced by hops. touch of vanilla at the swallow, hint of banana in the aftertaste. spice and alcohol. Alcohol a bit too intense.

Mouthfeel: medium body, carbonation high but it works.

Drinkability: Decent, but lacks the complexity of Belgian triples and the alcohol character is a bit too potent.

Serving type: bottle
