Availability: Summer

Notes/Commercial Description:
Our Summer seasonal, Trade Winds Tripel is a Belgian-style Golden Ale with a Southeast Asian twist. Instead of using candi sugar (typical for such a beer), we use rice in the mash to lighten the body and increase the gravity, and spice with Thai Basil. The result is an aromatic, digestible and complex beer made for a lazy summer evening.

Served in a Chimay goblet.

Pours a hazy strawberry blonde, with about a finger and a half of luxurious head that settles quickly into the ever-rising field of effervescence from the bottom. The aroma is interesting, with tones of hops, grains, pepper, and even a bit of vanilla at the beck end of the nose. The taste is not as interesting, with the pepper and vanilla completely disappearing beneath a sea of hoppy grains and faint banana tones. Unfortunately, the taste is not able to linger very long on the tongue, instead being forced therefrom by the overactive carbonation and incredibly light body (I blame the rice). All said, this guy would probably seem better if the flavor were allowed to settle longer on the tongue, but he's still not all that bad.
