Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: homebrewhawk on 11-24-2007

Lately it occurs to us that if, back in 1989, you planned on starting a brewery in the back of your carpentry shop, you'd been wise to seek out someone like Harold “Trip” Hogue. A collector of ancient Volvos, Trip was well qualified for the make-do engineering required to coax recalcitrant equipment out of retirement and into making the first Boulevard beers. Today, he is our longest-tenured employee. We offer this rich, golden Tripel in grateful tribute to dedication, everywhere.

Golden with huge white head and good lacing. Bubblegum and white pepper most prevalent in the aroma. Peppery alcohol and honey smoothness in the mouthfeel and taste, with hints of apricot, pear and a bit more gum. Good stuff.

What a cheese ball name...and I love the Grateful Dead so I had to try this latest punnery...OH MY GOD...what have I in my paws but the most delicious Tripel I have ever tasted. The alcohol so well hidden and such a complex flavor, a unique color. This this trip was better than the one at the Alpine Valley shows where myself and these three girls ended up in my tent and ...went to sleep. Great shows though, and great beer!

A - Pours a hazy gold with a large three-finger foamy white head. Lots of soapy lacing.

S - Aroma of lemon, banana, and Belgian yeast.

T - Taste is candied sugar, banana, pear, pale malts, and Belgian yeast. The finish has corriander and white pepper. Alcohol is not noticeable at all.

M - Medium bodied with medium carbonation. Very soft and creamy mouthfeel. Dry finish.

O - This is an outstanding Tripel. The flavors are very balanced and make this an enjoyable experience.

A: For Harry Potter watchers, has the exact color of Butter Beer. For non HP watchers that's a hazy, deep gold. Rocky, loose an crackling head. Not getting any lacing.

S: Lemon, spicy phenolics and hop additions. On the fruit side, I get mostly pear and gold plum; the banana is there, but doesn't lend sweetness. Quality pale, crackery malts. Overall impression is some tart and firm fruit flavors with a dryness. Reminds me of pear cider off the bat.

M: A medium body and medium-high dose of steady carbonation. Slightly dry. A tad too sharp.

T: Balance is spot on, not too sweet or heavy-handed with the Belgian candi sugars like some other beers I've had. Excellent peppery, lemon, and woody hop presence keeps the banana in check. Slight sulfur, and good pear flavor.
