COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Named for the scenic ridge that runs between Blanco and Wimberly, Devil's Backbone is a Belgian-style trippel. Brewed in the traditional manner, Czech Saaz hops and Belgian yeast give this ale its distinctive flavor and aroma. Candy sugar made in-house at the brewery adds strength without increasing heaviness. The result is a deceptively strong, pale golden ale. ABV: 8.1%, IBU: 36, OG(plato): 18

Pershing (487) - Garland, Texas, USA - JUN 14, 2010
UPDATED: OCT 14, 2012 Not bad for a Belgian Tripel brewed in Texas. Brewery made candi sugar is the way to go!. Pours hazy orange with a small white head. No lacing at all. Sweet fruit aroma. The alcohol level is hidden very well. Finishes slightly sweet.

tgncc (3013) - Bellmore, New York, USA - JUN 3, 2010
Extra form trade with Blutt59. The aroma is pepper, spicy, light fruit. The appearance is a lightly hazy gold, white head. The flavor is like the aroma, only maybe a little less spicy, and a little more fruity. The finish is spices, and a noble hop bittering. Not a big fan of the style, but this is a nice beer overall. Thanks, Bob.

Sammer (1082) - Plano, Texas, USA - JUN 1, 2010
Golden pour at the Holy Grail in Plano, Tx. Very nice balance of sugar, hops and alcohol. Not quite as powerful as some abbey tripels, but all in all a solid effort.

Snojerk321 (2960) - San Diego, California, USA - MAY 28, 2010
Received as a 12oz bonus bottle in trade. Pours a cloudy golden orange with a nice frothy white head, great lacing. Nose was instantly wheat, citrus and yeast dominate. Flavor was quite fruity and medium sweet, a great Trippel even though I’m not a huge fan of the style.

12 ounce bottle share by footbalm. Pours a clear yellow color with a small white head. The aroma is spicy honey, light Czech hops. The taste is a very spicy Belgian Ale; lots of Saaz and spices, sweet candies, a bitter finish. Nice.
