BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Brewery Ommegang
New York, United States

Style: Tripel

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 8.30%

Availability: Limited (brewed once)

Notes / Commercial Description:
In honor of both its independence and its signature Tripel style, this Belgian-style ale is brewed with Belgian candi sugar and a combination of Ommegang, Duvel and Chouffe yeasts. A triple, Tripel if you will. The unsung hero of brewing, the yeast strain dramatically influences the flavor and aroma profile of a beer. Three yeasts join here together to forge one remarkable brew.
