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…

Mortlach (1925) - Rome, ITALY - MAY 29, 2016
On tap @Mad for Beer (Rome). Pours orange, a bit unclear, medium white head. Aroma of yeasts, malt, ripe fruits, solvent, cinnamont. Flavour is medium sweet with a light sourish end, sponge cake and vinous notes, quite complex. Medium body, light carbonation. Interesting!

ShivanDragon (3426) - Leeuwarden, NETHERLANDS - MAR 26, 2016
Van tap in de wildeman, gouden/oranje met witte kraag. Aroma van hout, mout, gist, floraal, kruidig. Smaken zijn zoet, fruitig, sinaasappel, siroop, jong eikenhout. Redelijk bitter, jong, smaakvol maar niet geheel mijn smaken.

Moebbels (716) - FINLAND - FEB 2, 2016
A mildly hazy orange body with a white head that quickly becomes a ring around the edge of the glass. Nose has some nice orange peel fruitiness and a heavy warm cinnamon accent. Taste is sweet and quickly followed by a warming cinnamon burn that ends with a strong, lingering spicy bitterness. Lively carbonation and light palate. Nice smell but the aftertaste has some unpleasant side notes for my taste.

mathieuc (3333) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 31, 2016
Bottle from my sister Eve and shared 2-ways with my real life brother, thanks Eve! Pours a hazy golden with a small white head that leave low lacing. Nose is of cinnamon, bitter orange peel, oak and light alcohol. Not too phenolic, I can appreciate that. Taste is more cinnamon, light hops, light bananas. Moderately sweet and bitter. Alcohol gives a light warm feeling but is otherwise pretty discrete. Average body and a moderately high carbonation. Pretty good, the spices add a nice twist!

Sjohnh (752) - Coventry, West Midlands, ENGLAND - NOV 21, 2015
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.

Bottled 330ml (from SB, AIH53)
Hazy orange color, steady beige head. Light fruity tartness, yeasty and a bit hoppy aroma. Medium-bodied. Overriped fruits, oak and vanilla, candy sugar spices and orange peels. Decent special tripel.

Mjp12 (1391) - York, North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - OCT 27, 2015
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.

Bottle. Hazy golden orange beer with a large white head. Aroma is spicy with notes of citrus, cinnamon, herbs, hay, grass and apricots. Flavor is fruity with notes of caramel, bread, herbs, cinnamon and apricots. A bit too sweet.
