Ogham Oak Exotic Tripel – 8.5%
35 IBUs – Belgium Yeast, Orange Peel and Cinnamon
Oak is a cosmic storehouse of wisdom embodied within its towering strength. The oak tree endures what others cannot.
Each batch is brewed with fresh ‘tripel’ yeast borrowed from a secret location in Flanders. The beer has a complex flavour combining resinous bite from the American hops, spicy esters from the belgium yeast and fruit and cinnomon twists from the belgium fruits and spices. All finished with supreme British malt and candy sugar…

Looks more IPA than tripel - rusty orange with a big white head and lacing. US hops lead the way too with citrus and tropical fruit, with the Belgian yeast sitting just behind. The orange peel lends a subtle edge, while the cinnamon appears towards the end, and lingers once everything else has faded. Touch of spice too, and some toffee malt. Not quite sure of the balance, but it has some interesting depths.

This is very good! Normally tripels are just too sweet for me, but the Orange cuts right through the sweetness. It has a great bread, yeast and citrus aroma, with a touch of spice on the finish.

330ml bottle from Stori Beer & Wine, Bala. Pours copper with big white head. Aroma is cinnamon and cointreau. Taste is creamy and spicy, with big dusty cinnamon and orange zest, rich and sweet with good integration with the Belgian yeast. Interesting & flavoursome, although a little too much orange in parts.
