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.

Murky medium yellow body. Slightly creamy texture with lively carbonation. Moderate alcoholic finish. Bland non impressive Tripel for sure.

BlackHaddock (4260) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - JAN 27, 2015
24th Jan 2015: shared bottle at the Cotteridge Wine meet, cheers Gary. Golden hue to this brew, getting hazier with each new pour, white head. The nose was both fruity and yeasty as was the taste, some mixed spice traces also. Pleasant without setting the world alight, had a few Left Hand beers now, seems a good brewery.

imdownthepub (10769) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - JAN 27, 2015
Bottled, sampled at The Cotteridge Convention, many thanks to Garrold for this one. Gold with white head. There is a heavy, peachy fruitiness to this, some spicing, cinnamon came to mind, touch of Belgian teast. Doesn’t quite get to the Tripel astringency for me, but reasonable.

Bottle at Cotteridge wine convention; hazy amber pour with a wispy off white head, floral aroma, taste has ripe fruit, sweet malts, some herbal character.

Garrold (1901) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JAN 26, 2015
Bottle share. Cotteridge Beano. Clear yellow. Thin, white head. Pretty typical Tripel aroma. Big on the spice. Light yeast. Found this pretty drinkable. Easy going. Ok.

tommann (2921) - Dudley, West Midlands, ENGLAND - JAN 25, 2015

chucklemation (594) - Pontiac, Michigan, USA - JAN 22, 2015
Pours a bright banana yellow with a small white foam head. Aroma is sweet honey and spice. Flavor has more emphasis on the sweet honey. Crisp and refreshing.

jackafholmes (416) - - JAN 18, 2015
Bottle from archer road beer stop, sheffield. Hazy pale yellow with frothy white head. Aroma is all clove, banana and sweet spice. Sweet and spicy, not much contrast for balance, quite sickly after a half. Medium with oil and nice carbonation. Not very drinkable to be honest.

alexsdad06 (6099) - Ohio, USA - DEC 28, 2014
Bottle sample from old notes. Pours a hazy yellow golden color with a medium sized white head. The aroma and flavor have pale malts, bread, yeast, citrus and banana, mild sweetness, dry finish, decent enough triple though nothing stands out, but not one of my favorite styles.

Nische (922) - Saltsjö-Boo, SWEDEN - OCT 31, 2014
Pours light cloudy yellow with fairly low white head. Aroma of yeast, honey, light grass, dough, light spices. Taste is balanced honey sweet with some coriander and yeast. Fairly straightforward and easy to drink.
