COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The usually peaceful St. Vrain River snakes out of the Rocky Mountains, winding mischievously towards our brewery. Named after Ceran St. Vrain, an 1800’s trapper and trader in the valley, St. Vrain is our version of a classic Belgian Tripel. Light in color and lightly hopped using Celeia hops, a touch of malt sweetness contrasts the warm spiciness hidden within. What at first appears benevolent can manifest into a mighty serpent in waiting.

Cool_Bond (1060) - Kung av Öl @ Facebook, SWEDEN - NOV 16, 2013
Slightly fruity scent. The flavor is strong and even alcohol which I do not like at all. I still have a hard time with these beers. The aftertaste disappears weak fast. No beer for me unfortunately. Follow me @ Kung av öl @ Facebook for more pictures and ratings.

Just a little hazy yellow with a white head. Aroma of grain, Belgian yeast, spice, and some fruit. The taste is yeasty and sweet with a very mild spice character. Medium bodied, slightly dry, and a touch syrupy. Not the best, but decent.
