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.

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

A-pours a cloudy yellow with a foamy white head.

S-smell is yeast,spices,oranges and some vinegar.

T-light malts, sweet, bannana,very tasty. No hint of its abv at all.

M- medium bodied with medium carbonation.

O-not normally a huge fan of triples but this is excellent. I'd definately recommend this, even if tripel isn't your favourite style.

Had this on 2013-06-21 in Columbia, PA

A - Moderately hazy gold with a 2-finger white head that fades to 1/2-finger pretty quickly and leaving mild lacing.

S - Belgian fruity yeast, light malt and grass. Sweet herbal.

T - Musky stone fruit forward with complimentary Belgian sugar sweetness, balanced nicely with a biscuit malt flavor, pepper and a light touch of lemon drop tartness. Dries nicely and leaves a lingering peach skin aftertaste.

M - Light-medium body and carbonation. Lightly syrupy, which compliments the stone fruit flavor.

O - An enjoyable, well-balanced Tripel. I'll gladly have it again.

look: 4.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.25

This is a solid American tripel. Golden and beautiful, this is a great beer to look at. The nose is a little less inviting, not in an unpleasant way, but rather behaving like a parent who is too busy to show up for their kid's soccer match. The hops shine through here more than most tripels, and It's easier to drink than its 9.25% abv would suggest. Crisp with a good amount of carbonation, this is lighter and easier than say Allagash Triple or Chimay Cinq Cents, but a little less complex than something like Tripel Karmeliet. Definitely worth a shot if you enjoy tripels or Belgian goldens.
