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.

A: Poured from a bottle to a goblet. Had an orange-ish color and a cloudy consistency. Some sediment. There was a two inch, foamy, long-lasting head. Decent lacing.

S: A nice aroma of fruit (apples), yeast, and some malt.

T: Tasted of Belgian-style yeast, a hint of malt, light spices, apples, and pears. Quite a focused, complex flavor that's as good as many Belgian-made tripels. Very tasty.

M: A highly carbonated beer with a lively finish. Medium-bodied.

O: This is a well made, easy to drink beer. A lot of character and complexity with this beer.

A standard pour yields a voluminous rich whipped froth with a waffled top comprised of big airy chunky bubbles... Rock star retention... The color is a very pale muted amber... There is a slight haziness throughout... A cyclone of micro bubbled quick carbonation in the center of the glass with a few stray bubbles elsewhere... A subdued Belgian yeast presence... Some overly ripened light colored fruits... Golden raisins... There is a mix of floral and grassy notes mixed in as well... Just a light touch of honey as well... Good depth and complexity... The palate is an exact reproduction of the aroma... On the fuller side of medium bodied... Prickly carbonation... Sleek with a touch of dryness throughout that intensifies on the finish... Slightly sticky... A rock solid Tripel... The apperance is the rock star here with all other facets being solidly above average... Good stuff... I'm becoming a bigger fan of Boulevard with each and every passing brew I try...
