Notes: Brewery made marmalade citrus tripel

Fermented with house made citrus candi sugar. Dr- hopped with Apollo and Cascade to compliment the pithy bitterness of the fruit and balance the Belgian Abbey yeast.

750ml bottle, I'm guessing it was on the store shelf for at least a year. Pours a sunset orange with a good creamy head. Smells like a non-sweet citrus or grapefruit with some funkiness. Tastes like most other tripels (a little sweetness and belgian yeast flavors) but with some citrusy bitterness. Feel is good, nice amount of carbonation, refreshing. Overall, an interesting variant on a tripel but not something I personally am likely to buy again.

I am enjoying this brewery that is new to me in the past couple of months.

The beer pours a cloudy copper orange. Ecru head holds well at a quarter inch supported by plenty of carbonation. Scent consists of orange peel, doughy Pilsner malt and black pepper. The taste is more of the same with the orange taking a candied sweet flavor with the alcohol sweetness, but finishes with a dry effervescence. Well carbonated providing a creamy mouthfeel yet finishes clean.

Everything is very well balanced between the orange, alcohol, malt, and yeast derived phenolics.
