Notes/Commercial Description:
This beer is retired; no longer brewed.

Tripel Tonnellerie is a 100% barrel fermented version of a Belgian Abbey Tripel. The base beer carries a classically clean maltiness, balanced by a fruity aroma and a dry, spicy mouthfeel. Extended fermentation in oak barrels inoculated with wild yeast allowed the beer to develop the rustic, earthy tones of a classic countryside biere de garde resulting in a uniquely flavorful beer, suitable for beer and wine lovers alike.

look: 4.25 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Appearance: Slightly cloudy light golden- yellow color with a frothy generous white head that slowly faded. good looking Tripel.

Smell: Bready notes, mild fruity and mild funk notes dominate the nose.

Taste: The bready, fruity, and mild funk notes that were present in the nose come through in the taste. The beer has a Tripel/Saison Hybrid taste. The typical Tripel notes are there but there is a faint Saison taste profile also present. The finish is more Saison dry than a typical Tripel.

Mouth-feel: Fairly light-bodied with a fairly high level of carbonation. Light bodied for a Tripel.

Overall: A unique twist on a Tripel. To me the fermentation with wild yeast lend a Saison taste/feel to the beer. I like the way the Bruery puts their spin on traditional beer styles.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.5

Poured from the bottle into a tulip glass.

Thin pale apricot orange body. Lots of sticking cola carbonation bubbles. Two finger creamy head and not too much retention, a bit of soda pop crackle on the pour as well. Head leaves a thin white puck.

Interesting nose. Hints of toast grains, faint brett like heat and warmth, good amount of vanilla and woody tannins. Some sugary white bread and sensing bakery sweetness, peanut butter?! and classic sucrose. Really interesting nose but kind of all over the place.

Palate fills with more common tripel character. Light bodied wine fruit notes of orange and apricot, which are quickly taken over by a big huge husky note of thick dough and light grains. The body is just a bit too light, almost like cheap wine. Faint hint of dry yeast pepper on the finish, but doesn't really last through this malt sweetness.

It's got some of that wine flavor of a special tripel, but no depth, and is just filled with lots grain thickness. It's very odd. Interesting beer though.
