Brewed by:
Boulevard Brewing Co.
Missouri, United States

Style: Tripel

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 9.20%

Availability: Year-round

Notes / Commercial Description:
Lately it occurs to us that if, back in 1989, you planned on starting a brewery in the back of your carpentry shop, you'd been wise to seek out someone like Harold “Trip” Hogue. A collector of ancient Volvos, Trip was well qualified for the make-do engineering required to coax recalcitrant equipment out of retirement and into making the first Boulevard beers. Today, he is our longest-tenured employee. We offer this rich, golden Tripel in grateful tribute to dedication, everywhere.

Poured from a 1 pint 9.4 ounce corked bottle into 12 ounce Shaker pint glass, "best by date" 03-2015.

APPEARANCE: pours a slightly hazy golden color with two finger white head that persisted nicely until a thin unbroken layer of bubbles remained highly carbonated, there was a fair amount of lacing on the glass.

SMELL: bread/yeast, pears, banana, some spice.

TASTE: the taste follows the nose, initially sweet bread/yeast, then banana, pears and a little spice, the 9.2% alcohol is well disguised.

PALATE: highly carbonated, creamy, medium bodied.

OVERALL: this is an excellent Tripel, tastes like it came from Belgium but was made in Kansas City, MO. I would recommend this to anyone who enjoys the style. It's reasonably priced at $8.99, I'll definitely buy this again.
