Review - Flying Dog Brewery's Kerberos Tripel
"Kerberos is the Greek name for the three-headed hellhound that guarded the gates of the underworld, making it more than worthy of protecting the contents of this bottle. We used the finest imported Pilsner malt and Belgian candi sugar to give this beer its' light malt flavor and color, accented by the complex flavors and aromas imparted by our unique yeast strain." -- Flying Dog Ales
Pours a light colored amber with a very thin body, very still body, generating virtually no head and absolutely no lacing. Having sat in the glass, it has taken on the appearance of apple juice. The aroma is of moderate fruit with some light clove notes, some moderate malt presence and some sweet doughy character, and also some moderate alcohol notes. Initial taste is aggressively sweet with a nice bitter bite, and slightly mellows towards the finish that\'s still a bit sweet at the end. Medium bodied with a creamy texture, it has a moderate alcohol burn with soft carbonation, and oily film, and some malty banana and spice.
