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.

The sample I got popped and fizzed like New Year’s champagne, so if you get this in a bottle, open with care - and have a towel handy. It comes out of the bottle a clear, bright solar yellow with a thick, fluffy snow-white head that leaves very generous lacing. Strong, yeasty aroma has apple and pear notes and a hint of malt. Fruity, yeasty flavor fills the mouth with apple, pear, and a hint of butterscotch, as well as a whisper of hoppy bitterness. Lively texture has good body and fizz, leaving a fruity, tingly, slightly yeasty and malty finish. Keep your eyes peeled for this one.

Poured from bottle into tulip glass. Golden color with a luscious thick head. Nose has notes of light stone fruit and white pepper. Tastes great; triple is a style that is growing on me. Perhaps too drinkable. Lemony flavors abound with a nice kick of both alcohol and spiciness.

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

Pour is slightly hazed golden yellow with a tight white head. Nose has a fair bit of tangy yeast and peppery spice up front. A bit of soapy hop and some lemon notes. Taste is a bit more soapy, yeast isn't quite as pronounced. Lemon is moderate, not sweet but the balance is a bit soapy. Body is a bit syrupy but the strong carb helps to balance it.

High alcohol content that does not take too much away from the flavor. bready and banana ar e the high points of the taste. Head is good and flavor is surprisingly balanced. Hops are balanced and go well with the banana, yeasty flavor. Great overall balanced brew and a must have for the true beer lover. Great Trippel
