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.

12 oz bottle poured into a tulip.

Appearance
Hazy apricot color with 3 fingers of loose, white head. Loads of yeast floating about with moderate carbonation.

Nose
Banana, caramel, pear, lemon, candy sugar, and light potpourri.

Taste
Caramel-glazed banana bread and zesty lemon. Lighter notes of pear and golden apple. Pale candy sugars, dried hay, and potpourri. Notes of coriander, pink peppercorn, and earthy linger. Alcohol is somewhat noticeable.

Mouthfeel
Light bodied, crisp, spicy, well carbonated, and very dry.

Overall
A well executed Tripel. Complex and true the its Trappist counterparts.
