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.

Review from notes.

A: Pours a hazy orange with a lot of white foam on top, pretty good staying power and left behind a good bit of lacing.

S: Some orange, apple, apricot. On the fruity side with light spices.

T: Again, fruity. Some apple, apricot, and a little bruised apple as well, orange to a lesser extent. Slight hop presence, and again, light on the spice/yeast.

M: On the sweeter side, medium bodied with lively carbonation.

O: Pretty good tripel, fruit forward with less focus on spice/yeast. Drank very easily, would have it again.

Served in a Duvel tulip glass.

It's surely been one, amiright? Anyway, this stuff pours a clear brass topped by over a finger of lightly off-cream-white foam. The nose comprises clove, banana, slightly waxy orange peel, cracked wheat, sweet flowers, and the slightest possible kiss of lemon zest. The taste shows off more of the orange (now complete with some flesh) and wheat, but the rest is still easily found. The body is a light medium, with a light moderate carbonation and an ever-so-slightly grainy feel. Overall, a very nice tripel, unsurprising seeing as it comes from the quality-producers at Boulevard. Good times.
