Our Tripel features malt and yeast that set the fresh aroma of baked brioche against the sweet scent of ripened banana. This relatively light-bodied ale is fermented with a distinct Belgian abbey ale strain, then bottle conditioned with extra sugar and yeast for at least two weeks. Bottle conditioning creates the effervescent mouth feel, as well as the distinct Belgian lace prized in Belgian beers.

While the origin of the word “Tripel” is unknown, there is a theory that it indicates “strength in some way”, as Tripels tend to be high in alcohol and strong in flavor. The term is most associated with Westmalle, a Trappist brewery in Belgium. This term has spread to other Belgian and American breweries to describe a light-colored, strong ale with high alcohol content and Belgian yeast.

Hazy Golden in color with a towering white head. Very yeasty and peppery in scent...yeast and ripe fruit. Lots of alcohol as well. The flavor is very Belgian...clove, bubblegum, spice, pepper, and lots of yeast. Warming on the tongue. Full in body and very effervescent. Excellent.

Enjoyed from a growler in a JAFB snifter. This very nice Belgian style tripel pours a luminous yellow amber with a modest white head that fizzles to a thin ring with nice lacing. Nose of bananas, pears, apples, strong alcohol, light spice, and sweet Belgian candy sugar. Flavors are very fruit forward with pears and apples to the front and sides mingling with nice sweet Belgian candy sugar notes. A light traditional Belgian spice comes through on the back and sears in with the solid crisp carbonation. Lightly dry finish makes this a fine addition to anyone looking for a good tripel to enjoy from the states.

Cheers!

Sweet, banana esters, confectioners sugar sweetness, orange, and pear form the aroma. Flavor reveals underpinnings of tart citrus, surprisingly forward, with a lightly bready malt backbone. The finish is dry and spicy. More sharp fruit character than expected. Touch of honey in the finish.
