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.

My neighbor brings out this a bottle of this while we are brewing beer.

" of course I love Boulevard, pour the beer!"

Don't exactly have my tasting notes hat on, but i remember a steady stream of carbonation in a orange yellow clear liquid with a one finger white foam cap.

Orange and spice aromas

Citrus taste, clean , crisp.

Very drinkable and I detect the alcohol on the end. Check the above and its plus 9.

Very good beer worthy of repeating.
