Tröegs Scratch 108


Brewed by Tröegs Brewing Company
Hershey, Pennsylvania USA
Style: Abbey Tripel | Ratings: 1 | Special Seasonal | Alcohol: 9.6%
Over the years, we’ve visited the Triple numerous times throughout Scratch Beer history. Our latest rendition of this strong yet sweet Belgian style boasts a sunny golden hue and dense, soapy head. The flavor of Scratch #108 originates in the Abbey Ale yeast strain (an authentic Trappist style), which produces a distinctive fruity character with a hint of dark fruit evoking plums. The addition of cane sugar bolsters the sweetness, a hallmark of the Triple style. The use of Hersbrucker hops in our hopback vessel fortifies the bitterness and lends a mix of spicy, floral, and fruity notes, giving Scratch #108 a complex aroma and flavor profile. Deceivingly drinkable, don’t let this strong ale sneak up on you!
