COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This beer was inspired by the classic Belgian style of ale called a "tripel." Our brewmaster has created a unique brew which offers a complex nose with hints of spice and "juicy fruit" character, backed up by a semi-sweet palate of velvety smooth malt. Best enjoyed chilled with fine cheese and a tart apple.

Bubblegum and tangerine nose, some hazy lemon zest. Starts off more like a wit. Clear bright gold, active carbonation, creamy white head. This beer seems to cross the line between Tripel and Wit. Juicy citrus body, lemon, lime and peach with a dry spicy finish that strikes me as a great beer for the senses. I agree with the suggested food pairing, this with a creamy brie and a granny smith apple would be amazing.

Bomber served in a tulip. Pours clear orange with and light champagne bubbles beneath a medium-sized fluffy white top. Good retention and moderate soapy lacing. Quite nice to look at. Aroma is bright, featuring dry gum, soft citrus, and coriander. Medium sweet flavor. Medium+ body, a very creamy texture, and a long, sticky, dry finish. This is a great beer!

Sampler @ Chuckís. Easily the best of the bunch. Limited release Belgian with a lot of flavor to it. Considering the four other beers I had just tried, this one was surprisingly crisp. The guy suggested cellaring it which Iím not sure is appropriate for the style. He also mentioned that they had used the recipe once before 10 years ago. I donít know if itís prohibitively expensive, but I donít see why this isnít in at least a seasonal rotation.

Bottled. Neat label on this one. Hazy gold, white head. Sweet and spicy aroma, very yeasty. Surprisingly peppery tasting with hints of clove. The spiciness lingers in the back of the mouth quite a bit. Also sweet honeyish malt flavors, fruity peach and citrus flavors, but the spice is dominant.

Foggy golden color/ white head. Nice pils malt, dry spice, black pepper aromas. Medium body with soft co2. Pils malt, dry hay, spicy alcohol flavors with a light sweetness to balance--very good

Bottle:   Dirty straw in color, some sediment floats about as I near the end of the bottle, huge rocky white head, nice lacing.   Soft bready nose, slight hay/grassiness.   Very faint honeydew like melon.   Smooth breadiness up front, slightly mealy, pale melon.   Has a mild dose of dull floralness.   Some warming from the alcohol too.   Very smooth on the tongue, not too heavy or sweet.   Some sweet melon and breadiness lingers after the finish.   This is a fairly nice example of an American made Tripel.   Had this along with some Jarlesberg cheese, which seemed to pair well.

Bomber from Bottlworks. Pours clear orange tinged gold with a foamy off-white head. Aromas of yeast, spice, light fruit, a little citrus. Full bodied. Flavor is surprisingly a bit funky/yeasty. Thereís some heat. Thereís some fruit and spice. Nice that some yeast and funk keep on truckin. Excellent ale.

Bomber.

Modest head. This beer is marmalade on crumpets. Estery nose, gently sweet flavors, lots of citrus peel (but not pith). Maybe someone drizzled some honey on that crumpet too. Easily among the better American tripels Iíve had the opportunity to try.
