BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Cigar City Brewing
Florida, United States

Style: Tripel

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 9.40%

Availability: Limited (brewed once)

Notes / Commercial Description:
Hapax Legomenon began as a Belgian-style Tripel brewed with rice and aged in gin barrels.Before they became gin barrels, these barrels were used to age bourbon, giving the final beer a unique quality.
After some time in barrels, we blended in some American Grapefruit Sour Ale. The strong grapefruit character from this beer plus the spice from the gin helps to create an interesting “gin and juice” feel.
When it’s all said and done, we think we can safely say that this will be the only occurrence of a gin barrel-aged Belgian-style Rice Tripel blended with an American Grapefruit Sour Ale to be found in our oeuvre.

750 mL bottle. Deep orange clear body. Smells kinda like a triple. A little phenolic. Grapefruit. Taste has a lot more of the sour ale blended in, but immediately drops off with a creamy flavor. Phenolic with an orange creamsicle flavor in the back end. Medium heavy. I don't get any of the brett they're talking about in the emails, but it's just kinda blah.
