From BeerAdvocate Magazine #76 (May 2013):

We are all for extreme beer, but we are also about styles staying within their traditional ranges ... especially Belgians. This is a Tripel through and through, not the cleanest one but certainly a very enjoyable one at that. The addition of lemongrass simply complements what the brewers are trying to achieve. Well done!

I really enjoyed this triple. The lemongrass provides a citrus note that does a good job of masking the alcohol.

As it does have a high ABV this should be a sipper, but it is so refreshing that it goes down more like a quencher.

I stumbled upon this by accident, as I happened to visit COTU on the day it was released. After on glass on tap, I bought my first growler and subsequently went back for a refill thereof.

Of interest is that the brewery had before and after versions of the brew on tap. The version that not been exposed to the lemongrass was far more intense in taste and smell - easily drinkable, but much more the sipper.

A fine offering. (657 characters)

Had this at their Brewery/Taphouse. Not bad, needs just a bit more flavor togive it a higher rating. (100 characters)
