BEER INFO

Style: Tripel

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 9.50%

Availability: Rotating

Notes / Commercial Description:
Moa St Josephs is brewed in the traditional style of a classic Belgian Tripel. Strong spice and clove characters create complex flavours and aromas which are heightened by its extended bottle conditioning, with a combination of malt and candy sugars complimenting the high alcohol content produced by the Belgian ale yeast. Best served at 8°C in a goblet after gently rolling the bottle to distribute the sediment signature.

smooth tripel. not a super bite or complexity but really easy drinking. wish to have something like this as a GO TO but its pricey at 19.99 for a 4 pack, 6 bucks for a single. really smooth, all tripel necessary characteristics. mellower than la Fin or some of the other common tripels

Partly cloudy, deep gold colored body sporting a thick, creamy, sticky, white head. Bread and yeast aroma with some ripe apricot smell. Bread, honey, esters, and heavy sugar-like flavors. Heavy bodied; chewy; rich and creamy mouthfeel.

I barely got the cage untwisted when the cork blew and scared the dog, but very little beer was lost and that's a good thing. The flavors are dense and intriguing with excellent malt grain twists and turns. I don't know about the BA description of tripels being light bodied; this beer has a heavy-duty feel to it yet the thick, rich flavors and aromas go hand-in-hand with the mouthfeel. For what it's worth, a really tasty, big bodied ale...
