Style: Tripel

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 9.50%

Availability: Rotating

Notes / Commercial Description:
Finding new zymological expressions is a noble dedication of the craft beer enthusiast. For those committed to the adventure of seeking new styles, beer destinations and breweries, we applaud you and dedicate this golden Belgian-style trippel ale.

This smooth and alluring Belgian golden ale is full of complex fruity pineapple flavors set against a spicy finish. Dried jasmine flowers added in the boil work with a higher alcohol level to augment Belgian pilsen, caramel and honey malts. Hop character is distinctly Chinook with an aromatic peppery finish that comes from Motueka hops grown in New Zealand.

Slightly cloudy with a neutral amber color. Little head and nearly no lace.

Rich, alcohol laden aroma. Lots of fermented malt.

Definite Barley Wine properties but I don't detect any Belgian yeast flavors for a true Trippel. The body is predictable and the carbonation low.
