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…

AgentAle (683) - Alberta, CANADA - AUG 6, 2014
Aroma is grapefruit, passionfruit, lemon grass and a subtle earthiness. The malt character is met quickly by a sweet and lightly smokey oakiness. finishes with a tarty bitterness thst lingers slightly. PLeasant sweetness on tip. Appearance is a clear straw /gold with a medium pearl head that retains well.

jjsint (769) - Bedford, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - JUL 29, 2014
Bottle at Prince of Wales, Cardiff. Amber/copper with a massive white head. Aroma of coriander, citrus and ginger nuts. Sour/bitter with a lingering astringent aftertaste: not all that great. The carbonation backs up a slightly thin body. Ok but far from exceptional. I expected more.

KolmeKuninga (15) - - JUL 24, 2014
Smells citrus, bubblegum, toffee & vanilla, floral, dough. Looks golden, hazy, white foam. medium sweetness, lightly bitter, lightly sour, salty. Medium body, oily feel, average carbonation, bitter, sting and spice. Overall a great surprise from oak aged beer. Expected heavy beer but its like a well balanced gewürtstraminer with a beer touch.

Pdubyah (385) - Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - JUL 23, 2014
Fair decent is this. Lovely look, lovely pour, great aroma, needs however slightly more body to make it that notch higher. I’d easily and willingly buy more of this though it really is very simple easy well crafted and all round just a good beer.

_angst_ (2773) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - MAY 13, 2014
Bottle received as extra in trade. Thank you Theydon_Bois! Pours tiny hazy golden with a rather small frothy white head that quickly dissipates without leaving much trace on the glass. Smell is fruity, slightly yeasty, slightly estery and phenolic with white bread, candi sugar, overripe tropical fruits, grapefruit juice, pears, apples, glue, hay, dry soil, pepper corns and orange zest. Taste is tiny sweet, bitter, fruity and phenolic with white bread, plums, mango, orange zest, lemon zest, sheet metal, pear skins, apple skins, grapes, pepper corns and hay. Mouthfeel is slightly dry, slightly astringent, round and medium bodied. Finish is fruity and phenolic with white bread, pears, apples, hay, pepper corns and unripe tropical fruits. Decent untraditional tripel.
