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

Oak is a cosmic storehouse of wisdom embodied within its towering strength. The oak tree endures what others cannot.

Each batch is brewed with fresh ‘tripel’ yeast borrowed from a secret location in Flanders. The beer has a complex flavour combining resinous bite from the American hops, spicy esters from the belgium yeast and fruit and cinnomon twists from the belgium fruits and spices. All finished with supreme British malt and candy sugar…

35 IBU

330ml bottle, produced with orange peel and cinnamon. Apparently there's more to an oak tree than I had previously imagined.

This beer pours a slightly hazy, pale golden yellow hue, with a rising tower of glistening, creamy, foamy white head, which leaves a loose patchwork of fuzzy, sudsy lace around the glass as it it slowly sinks away.

It smells of sharp, edgy green yeast, sassy black and white pepper, pale grainy malt, dry orange rind, and a further bit of musty, earthy hops. The taste is more spicy, green and black pepper, semi-sweet, rich pale grainy malt, a touch of caramel, a hint of metallic cinnamon, some sozzled fleshy orange, and more edgy, leafy hops.

The bubbles are present, and a bit peppy, but nothing more, the body medium-light in weight, and smooth, but with a simmering alcohol caveat. It finishes off-dry, the sugary pale malt and fleshy orange having a challenge on hand with the lingering spice, pepper, and hops.

A tasty flavoured tripel - the adjuncts doing well to distract from the usual alcohol astringency. Not much is discernible from the cinnamon, unfortunately, but I'm sure its contribution is part of the overall sublimation into the total flavour vortex. Good stuff, and I don't usually throw those words around lightly for this style.
