BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Dragonmead Microbrewery

Style: Tripel

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 10.00%

Availability: Year-round

Notes / Commercial Description:
Dragonmead's signature product! This is the ultimate Belgian style. The very high gravity of this beer is balanced by the smoothness of its finish. Banana and Clove aromas come from the Belgian yeast strain combining with the generous dose of Belgian Candi Sugar. The Saaz hops help to give this beer a balanced bitterness with no noticeable hop aroma.

look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

Poured from a bottle into a goblet.

Appearance: Honey golden. The short off-white head dissipated to a ring of foam.

Aroma: A slight sourness with sweet caramel.

Taste: Funky sour with some sweetness. Detected fruitiness (apricot?). Nice balance between the flavor components. A pleasant sweetness lingers on the tongue.

Mouthfeel: A little light with low carbonation even when held in the mouth for a while.

Overall: Quite enjoyable. This is a very nice example of this style. I'll definitely have it again.

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

Appearance: hazy golden body with a one finger white head; if it pours clear then you did not get the sediment off the bottom of the bottle.

Aroma: mild earthy yeast, fruity, light Belgian spice, sweet

Flavors: fruity – white grape, banana, pear, apple and a touch of orange; sweet; spicy Belgian style yeast; light clove; mild floral hops

Mouthfeel: mild-moderate; sweet candied fruit, light tart feel, floral, smooth, very low carbonation, the alcohol does not come into play here on the taste so be careful

To the Point: a pretty good Trippel; a solid representation of this style; it is worthy to purchase

Dragonmead Final Absolution Trippel ..
This beer poured copper color and murky, but then cleared nicely .
A very crisp clean beer..Citrus and Honey up front with a light linger with the bitter.
Almost wine like. The smell was odd, a bit yeasty. I enjoyed this beer. The BrewCrew will be visiting this brewery! Abv 8.5
