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.

Pours a hazy golden color with a fluffy sudsy off-white head that is a couple inches thick and retains indefinitely.

Smells of honey, citrus, fresh grassy malts, and white grapes.

Tastes of honey, citrus, apple, rice malt, fresh grassy malts, and a hint of basil.

Full body with tingly carbonation on the tongue.

Pretty good trippel with some nice flavor and aroma, very tasty and drinks easy. Worth trying.
