BEER INFO

Brewed by:
The Bruery
California, United States
thebruery.com

Style: Tripel

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 8.10%

Availability: Summer

Notes / Commercial Description:
Our Summer seasonal, Trade Winds Tripel is a Belgian-style Golden Ale with a Southeast Asian twist. Instead of using candi sugar (typical for such a beer), we use rice in the mash to lighten the body and increase the gravity, and spice with Thai Basil. The result is an aromatic, digestible and complex beer made for a lazy summer evening.

A: Pours a glowing apricot color with a big, three finger white head. Slowly settles down but it's pretty impressive.

S: Lots of sweet Belgian yeast, but there's definitely an edge to it. Rice, hints of coconut pudding, basil.

T: I had this at the tasting room last week for the first time and I wasn't really a fan. But out of the bottle, I like it a lot more. It does taste like a classic tripel, but it has just an edge from the rice. Honestly, I'm looking everywhere for the basil here, but I'm just not getting it. But this is a very nice tripel.
