Grant Phillips was the winner of our Batch 300 homebrew contest and rightfully so. Grant came down and helped us brew his recipe for an oaked tripel brewed with the ever so popular Citra hops.

Hazy orange - amber beer with a big fluffy white head. Light crispy palate. Delicious fresh orange and pink grapefruit which has a bitter follow through. Touch of aniseed. Whisper of creamy oak. A little creamy malt. Finishes semi dry with a carbonated sting. Comes across as more IPA than Tripel but who cares? Great beer! A little more oak and this would have been up in the stratosphere.

In short: A fruity and surprisingly dry strong Belgian blond ale with a bit too much phenols and plastic.
How: Bottle 750ml, almost one year old, bottle sent to me by nicks6217, thanks Nick
The look: Cloudy blond body topped by a large white head with medium retention and leaving lots of lacings on the glass
In long: Nose is very phenolic with typical blond Belgian ale fruity esters piercing through. Taste is like chewing on a soft piece plastic, some oak, banana peels, fruit salad, more plastic, honey, dried light color fruits, bubblegum, acetone sensation, whip cream, tropical fruit hops. Finish is quite dry that the after-taste has alcohol warmth and plastic. Not sure what happened here, some good things going on in this beer but that plastic taste just didnít go away even after letting the beer breathe for a while. And to think I traded for that boring beer, honestly Iím starting to think that looking at the ratebeer trade forum is the biggest waste of time of all the things I have ever done 54 times today.

Bottle from Bruery Provisions in 2011. Aroma and flavor of light straw, Belgian yeast, light sugar, and some Citra characteristics. Palate was moderate mouthfeel and very smooth from start to finish. Great beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours a crystal clear deep golden color with an impressive bone white head that persists forever and leaves lots of lace. Spicy and fruity aroma with a hint of bourbon and oak. Pepper, sweet candy sugars, light sweet fruit, pepper its all there. The flavor is sweeter than I expected with lots of sweet fruits and malts with a bit of caramel in there for fun. Some vanilla and bourbon oak midway through and a hit of alcohol right at the end into a fairly dry finish that does leave a bit of sweetness on the palette. Medium body with a high level of carbonation and a sweet slick mouthfeel. Nice tripel, I quite enjoyed this one.

750mL bottle. Poured cloudy peach with a nice off-white head. The aroma picked up fairly sweet lighter fruits, green apple, and honey, with warm undertones.. light cloves, Orange zest, and white vinous notes around.. came across a bit too big and sugary. The flavor opened with warm honey, with blended fruity meat behind.. black pepper and a whole lot of oak and orangey Citra influence throughout.. spicy, warm, oaky, and bitter on the long, belly-warming finish.. I really dug the Citra with the oak, but it wasnít my ideal style for the combo. Heavier-bodied with a smooth flow through the palate.. again too hoppy for the style, but thatís a personal preference thing.

Sugary nose with a touch of golden fruit. Moderately sweet, lightly bitter, phenolic, very peppery and estery, messy and slightly vegetal. More of GTís thing.

Clear amber pour with a thin white head. Bready apricot and nectar fruit with soapy oxidation. Medium cloying palate. Really awful for the style.

Bottle shared by MrChopin: Pours a pale bright golden bronze with a stringy-lacing white head. Has a fresh pale malty nose with some biscuity notes and light fruits. Starts with pretty good fullness and effervescent carbonation with some peppery clove spice and herbal hop bitterness before a drier, slightly warming finish. Well-balanced, but could be a little subtler.

GT2 (9102) - San Diego County, California, USA - JUN 3, 2012
750mL thanks to MrChopin. Low haze gold. Nose is sticky malt. Apples. Taste is mild alcohol, yellow apple, cinnamon. Palate is thinner, tangy, yellow apple. Typical cidery off flavors for style.
