BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Neshaminy Creek Brewing Company
Pennsylvania, United States

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.

Growler poured into a shaker pint.

Appearance
Golden yellow with 2 fingers of white head. Good clarity with low carbonation.

Nose
Lemon, honeydew, dried hay, potpourri and caramelized grain.

Taste
Lemon, honeydew and hints of apricot. Caramel drizzled grains with notes of tangy wheat and pale candy sugars. Nice yeast profile similar to Westmalle. Subtly spicy with some dried hay, potpourri and white pepper. Earthy bitterness lingers with some grassy hops.

Mouthfeel
Light-medium bodied, smooth, dry and slightly sticky.

Overall
This is a really nice Tripel. Excellent yeast strain. Very easy drinking and rather dangerous at 9.3%.

Pours a glowing orange color, light haze with thin cap of bone white bubbles, sticky lacing. Big pungent whiffs of tropical and citrus, candy sugar, light breadyness, moderate spice. Taste brings orange rind, fruity grapefruit and orange juice, residual sugar, moderate notes of corriander, light breadyness. Lightly bitter, sweet and fruity but finishes a touch dry. Quite taken back by how enjoyable this beer was. ABVs hidden well, and while not necessarily true to style with all the sweet fruityness, it was enjoyable for every sip.

I tried something new with this beer. I tried dunking some local biscotti in it, the results were delicious. The biscotti was almond and orange, for those who care to try.

Poured from a 12oz. can into a Bordeaux glass. Nice looking tripel, cloudy amber with and off-white head and solid lacing. Some may like theirs a bit clearer but to me this is a really good looking beer.

Smells of banana and apricot, a bit of orange and cilantro along with some spicy gingerbread, presumably from the addition of Saaz hops. I could literally sit here and smell this all day.

Taste is a classic tripel with a bit of a buttery side and slightly less alcoholic. Really very tasty. This would really go great with some lemon chicken, duck a l'orange, or some other zesty yet light flavored dish.

Overall I am really impressed by this beer and will surely be buying again.
