Notes/Commercial Description:
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.

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.
