Commercial Description
Rich pale malt flavors provide a solid base for zesty Styrian Golding and Czech Saaz hopping. Trappist ale yeast contributes the fruity, spicy profile of classic, monk-brewed, Belgian ales. Our Trippel is luscious, fiery, golden brew and a contemporary rendition of traditional Belgian Trippel.

    Presentation: It was poured from a brown 1pt. 6oz bottle into a chalice.

    Appearance: To start with the head produces a big fluffy and creamy foam head which is bright white in color. It slowly fades to a thin covering which hangs on till the end and leaves some splotchy lace on the glass. Under the head sits a hazy, honey amber colored liquid full of yeast floaters that hang in suspension.

    Smell: Its aroma is fruity and yeasty with notes of banana and plain white bread.

    Taste/Palate: Up front are the classic notes of funky Belgian yeast. It's fruity, earthy and bready with a touch of spice. Banana is the stand out fruity note along with a touch of apple. Alcohol is present here but mellow and adds some warmth. The sweetness and fruitiness hits its peek in the middle before the hops move in and adds there dry earthy/leafy notes and mild bitterness to the finish. The body has a solid medium feel with plenty of carbonation.

    Notes: Overall I feel this is a solid Tripel style beer with a good lively palate.

    Granted this is my first Trippel, I'm not too impressed. The level of alcohol makes this feel very "hot" and overpowers most of the other flavors. Before the hotness from the alcohol kicks in, I do sense a mild taste of pear and spice.
