BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Neshaminy Creek Brewing Company
Pennsylvania, United States | website

Style: Tripel

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 9.30%

Availability: Year-round

Notes / Commercial Description:
“This is the greatest and best song (beer) in the world… Tribute.” Not only are we huge Tenacious D fans, but we’re also huge Belgian Tripel fans, so this is our “Tribute”. Brewed with a whole lot of Pilsen malt, Hallertau and Saaz hops, as well a pinch of coriander and bitter orange peel, Tribute has a soft malt backbone that’s paired with a fruity, citrusy flavor, and spicy, yet not over done phenolic character imparted from our use of an authentic Belgian yeast strain. At 9.3% ABV the alcohol is well hidden and very deceptive, and the dry finish will leave you eager for more."

This beer came from 15 min away from my home. It is a very exceptional tasting beer. The smell is soft and fruity to me. the taste is very potent making it very enjoyable to drink. The high alcohol content would scare most casual drinkers but I feel everyone should try this great brew. The brewery will fill a growler on weekends and even show you around. There is a lot of flavor in this beer and I cant quite explain it. I can compare it to a Golden Monkey but it has more citrus taste to it. You must try this beer if your in the Croydon area.

1/26...bomber. Pours bright gold with white foam touches on top. Strong belgian yeast nose. Citrus pokes through. Lemons. Taste is a light malt, peppery. Citrus, hoppy. A few in and the booziness is apparent. Leaves a bitter taste but chewy and sweet. Complex and flavorful.

very hazy rustic orange glow with golden high lights. About a finger of white head. Banana and hay on the nose.

Creamy and medium bodied. Very dry and tannic finish. Malt sweetness with a soft fruitiness up front, faint barnyard flavors of hay work nicely as undertones beneath it all. Very earthy dry finish to balance from the hops. Again super tannic finish, Really shows how a tripel can be sweet and dry at the same time rather then one or another. Reminds me of a cleaner version of weyerbachers merry monks with a dryer finish. Not too complex but with classic tripel flavors that go well together. banana and clove, fruit, and earth.

A: The beer is slightly hazy golden yellow in color and has a light amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a half finger high white head that died down and left a short head covering the surface and some lacing down the sides of the glass.
S: Moderate aromas of honey and orange peel are present in the nose.
T: The taste starts off with flavors of orange, honey and candi sugar and finishes with some spicy coriander.
M: It feels medium-bodied on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This tripel is unique in the sense that it is brewed with coriander and orange peel so it tastes like a souped up witbier.

Serving type: bottle

Picked up a bomber of this for 7 bucks from the house of 1,000 during their bomber sale. Into a stone pint glass.
A - Very carbonated giving me a 1/2 inch of sudsy head that lasts quite a while. Color is a somewhat hazy bright yellow.
S - Smells of spicy hops, light fruity yeasts, some lemon, and grassy hay.
T - A very fruity Triple indeed, getting some apricot, honeydew, and grassy hops. Very dry and Belgium in nature with stingy alcohol esters and fresh squeezed lemon.
M - Medium to heavy with noticeable alcohol and bubbly carbonation.

Overall I have had smoother Triples and I really like fruity takes on the style. Not bad overall for what it is.
