Notes/Commercial Description:
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.

Appearance- Golden orange and cloudy, with a voluminous, frothy head that is bleach white

Smell- Funk.

Taste- Wheat, must, citrus. Strong Belgian yeast character really shines here. Finishes dry. Another delicious, unique beer from Boulevard

Mouthfeel- Dry, well carbonated

Overall- This is quite a good brew. Unfortunately, I read in a few other reviews that this beer tastes kinda soapy and now I CAN NOT shake this thought from my head every time I take a sip. When I first tried this I would have rated it higher but it really is kind of soapy. What can I say, It's no Fin du Monde but it is a welcome change of pace.

Best by date of 08.09.13.
Poured from a 12 oz into a tumbler on 12.24.13.

A: Orange with a quickly receding head.

S: Orange, citrus. Very sweet and strong smelling.

T: Alcohol, orange, spicy.

M: Crisp.

O: It does create quite a bit of alcohol burn in the nose and throat. It doesn't seem very well balanced. It is an old bottle though, and I'm not sure how Tripels hold up after time.

12oz into tulip.

Pours a lightly hazy golden brown with a thick, foamy off white head that dissipates to leaves a medium foam across the surface.

Aroma and taste are a very enjoyable blend of clove yeast phenols, and lightly fruity estery notes.

Medium body, foamy carbonation.

A very well done, tasty Tripel.
