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.

Pours a hazed golden color with a large soapy white head. Suds last forever ontop of this Belgian style ale. The aroma has yeast, peach, green banana, pear, grain, and citrus. Perhaps just a whiff of the alcohol is present as well.

In the taste, soft pear notes, apricot, and citrus. Nice job with the yeast, it adds plenty of complexity to the beer alone. Hops are in full force with citrus, herb, and bitterness. Slight bit of hay and funk sneak in as well. Hardly a hint of alcohol.

Dry, effervescent body is perfect on this Tripel. I like a bone dry triple and this is surely that, nice and clean and well rounded.

Overall, this is a classic beer here from Boulevard. Solid flavor yet unique and keeps the drinker interested. I would like to try it fresh, this bottle was aged a bit, but very nice.
