Quebec, Canada

Style: Tripel

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 10.20%

Notes / Commercial Description:
According to legend, Herbe à Détourne makes one lose their way should they happen upon it. This is an ale inspired by the Triples of Belgium with a new world spin by way of the American hop varieties employed. Citra hops are used unabashedly, presenting mango, cantaloupe and citrus essences, accompanied by a seriously hoppy and floral aroma.

On tap at the brewpub. From notes.

A - Poured a hazy dark gold with a one finger white head. Good carbonation and good lacing left over with an OK film of retention.

S - Mango, pineapple, yeast, apple, pear all present. Yup, this is Citra.

T - Booze with pineappple and pears. Lingers with a boozy pineapple note. A little like sherry soaked pineapple chunks or something. The booze is a little strong, especially when it warms up.

M - Strong carbonation with a medium body and a sweet finish.

O/D - Aroma was lovely but the booze is a little rough. The Citra also seems to overpower the Tripel elements as well. Good but the other elements could shine through if the hopping was toned down and the alcohol was masked better.

On tap at Swillburger/The Playhouse in Rochester, NY.

This one pours a slightly hazed orange-ish color, with a small head, and a bit of lacing.

Smells like lots of tropical fruits, peaches in syrup, apricot, a little clove, and candy sugar.

This is a hoppy tripel- but the Citra hops provide more of an intense fruitiness to complement the usual fruitiness associated with tripels. There's basically no hop bitterness, with syrupy stone fruit, orange peel, clove, and simple syrup.

This is medium bodied, a tiny bit syrupy, with a lower level of carbonation.

This is definitely interesting, but it's a tiny bit too syrupy for me.

Appearance: light golden glow to this beer very different from other tripels. Low head on the pour and retained while drinking. Medium amounts of active carbonation.

Smell: nice subtle fruity citra hop tones. Medium to light yeast backbone. Buttery and doughy bread also present. Definitely a hop dominated aroma which is unique but very enjoyable.

Taste: the front is a combination of traditional tripel characteristics and bright citra hops. The body continues to showcase earthy hops. The finish is slightly dry with plenty of yeasty creaminess.

Mouthfeel: a unique combination of bright hops and tripel characteristics.

Overall: interesting and tasty brew. A pretty rare beer to find in the states. Incredibly easy drinking for 10.2% abv.
