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 and­ this beer is fairly dry for it's ABV but has a blend of spicy notes and fruity esters and 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 presents­ noble hops help balance the other flavors to make this a very drinkable beer. The 9% ABV is well hidden, so be careful!

This trippel poured a massive white head, whipped cream like, remaining firm. It lasted to the bottom of the glass with some terrific leftover lacing. In the nose, notes perceived included vanilla, pumpkin pie spice, and minor amounts of zest fruit. As it warmed, the alcohol became quite prevalent. Flavors in this beer were a mix “old bread” malt and coriander, with a dense earthy hop bitterness. It finished medium dry, with its healthy amount of carbonation allowing the palate to cleanse. As American interpretations of trippels go, this is fairly true to style. The bitter earthy finish detracts from its overall drinkability, as well its somewhat stale malt components.
