Style: Tripel

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 8.50%

Availability: Year-round

Notes / Commercial Description:
Our Trippel has always been a big, beautiful Belgian-style ale, but in 2015, we tweaked the recipe to include a new yeast variety and even more complex malt profile. This golden beer opens with a bold blast of spicy Noble hops, courtesy of Saaz and Hallertau Mittlefruh, and gives way to the fruity aromas offered by our traditional Belgian yeast. Brewed with Pilsner and Munich malts, Trippel is classically smooth and complex, and sings with a high-note of sweet citrus before a pleasantly dry finish delivers a warm, strong boozy bite. Give Trippel a sip to get you smiling.

This is an excellent trippel. It pours a dark golden colour with a huge head of frothy white foam. Aromas are that of a classic triple. Spicy, boozy, yeasty, malty, hoppy, zesty, magnificent. The taste is a wonderful melange of the classic Belgian triple aromas rolled into one wonderful ball of contradictions. The mouthfeel is lush and creamy and the drinkability is excellent. Whoa! 9%abv, you could have fooled me! One of the best domestic triples available on the west coast...for sure!
