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

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 Iím 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.

Clear bright gold, white head. Soft bubblegum aroma. Great balance between sweet and peppery yeasty spice without getting dense or sticky. Finishes spicy with some gentle clove and white pepper.

BarZigKin (511) - San Antonio, Texas, USA - MAY 10, 2010
12oz bottle from Kegs and Barrels in Plano, TX. Pours a glowing orange/golden body topped with a fluffy, ivory-colored head that leaves some lacing. Aroma is funky yeast, spicy (clove/nutmeg), orange zest and lightly sweet. Flavor mirrors the aromas and adds some fruity undertones as well as just a bit of "bite" from something spicy. Active carbonation and a medium mouthfeel.

RollinHard (1024) - Fort Worth, Texas, USA - MAY 6, 2010
Bottle. Pours deep gold with only a slight haze and a small white head. Aroma of sourdough bread, orange juice, lemon zest, white wine, and cheddar. Tastes of grassy malt, sourdough, pepper, citrus (more spicy than hoppy), chardonnay, earth and hay. Spicier and more bitter than the usual trippel. Finishes with a pleasant peppery and citrus flavor with a sort of earthy peppery bitter hop presence. Medium bodied and easy to drink. I know this beer pretty well from having it on tap all the time, and the bottles donít let me down. I think I prefer the tap version by a slight margin, but I will likely always keep some of this around the house.
