COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A perfectly enjoyable classic Belgian Trippel corrupted almost beyond recognition with a completely inappropriate amount of US hops. Only in America can such excessive excesses be fully appreciated, celebrated, and enjoyed...and for now, only at East End Brewing! To make this one a little more cellar-able, and a lot more portable, it’s going into the bottle. Limited run, available in October of 2006 at the brewery and a few select tap spots.

1 Liter swingtop bottle (I love this type of bottle.) Pours a hazy gold, medium white head. Some fruit notes and very slight yeast in the background of the aroma. Belgian yeast is right up front in the flavor, some nice minty/citrus hop notes also. Finish is a little sweet.
