Triple Seven (7^3)

Advertised on their beer board as 7^3 (i.e. seven raised to the power of 3), the waitress called this beer “Triple Seven” (obviously the niceties of mathematics are not a strong point at The Ram) and told me it was 8.00% ABV. It drank pretty well at that point to me. Anyway, she described it as a “Belgian Wheat” that was brewed as batch 777 by the brewery. Apparently they mark these numbers with special beers.
Nice Tripel color and it sit well in the glass with good head and lace.
The beer is overwhelmed by the sweetness, and any subtle notes of spice or specific adjuncts is blown away by the sweetness. I really like sweet beers, but this was at the extremities of even my tolerance. they really was nothing else except the sugar.
As a result of the sweetness the drinkability suffers badly and also I didn’t mind drinking the one I had, there was no way I was going back for more.
Ultimately a failed attempt at a Tripel.
