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.

With a vivid, opaque amber-honey color, it boasts a nicely yeasty, Italian bread flavor with subtle citrus and candy sugar taste, along with some estery hues, that lingers nicely into the pallet. The mouthfeel matches perfectly with the subtle carbonation and the overall taste. Overall, this is just like having a real Tripel straight from Belgium! Let’s pray to G-d that Budweiser doesn’t change the recipe AND the process of making this beer, because it is one of a kind, from Kansas City!

Best buy date about 4 months ago so should try again but I figure this is bottle conditioned so it should be able to be aged?

Good tripel. Smooth taste. Hint of wheat/ale style but very drinkable for a quad porter kind of guy. Try it!

Good attempt at the style. Towering fluffy head, buttery aroma, cloudy golden body. Taste is sourdough, butter, spice. Smooth on the palate, fairly thick consistency, good, but not Belgian.
