Commercial Description

Notice a unique aromatic nose with a hint of vanilla esters, which comes from the Belgian ale yeast. Tripel Horse has a big body and rich mouth feel and finishes mostly dry with only a touch of sweetness. If you shy from some of the sweeter Belgian ales, we think you will enjoy this one. The palate improves with age, so keep some on hand and you can ride Tripel Horse down a new path with each opened bottle.

    Hazy golden color with a foamy white head that dissipates quickly. Looks and smells mostly like a belgian wit, yeasty, sweetness apparent with hints of spices and citrus. Can't really detect the alcohol until the end where it produces a fair amount of warmth. Has just a touch of coriander and lemon along the way, sweet at the beginning and sweet at the end. Carbonated well with a little slickness, medium bodied. Probably could put back a few of these but not much more.
