COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Nice brew. I let the bottle warm some out of the fridge. Then I poured a huge, off-white, foamy, frothy, fluffy, billowy head that slowly settled down and some lace. Color is a slightly hazy gold amber with no bubble trails. Aroma is yeast, malt, caramel, fruit, bread dough. Flavor is similar to nose, but with a distinct hop on top then bittersweet, followed by the other stuff. Body and carbonation really are faultess. Finish is hop, some resin balanced with malt, of good length and satisfying. Quite drinkable.

Bottle shared at a small RB/BA tasting... Poured golden with a white head. Lots of oak here, like fortified oak. Citrus, earthy herbs and light fruits, and malt sweetness. With some yeast towards the finish.

Bottle courtesy of tastybeer, thank you sir! Hazy golden color, large fluffy white head, solid lacing. Aroma of lemon and grapefruit. Taste is sweet, peppery citrus. Interesting variation on a theme.

750ml from dcschiller in the NP10V5 - thanks, Dave! Very nice pour of a slightly burnished light orange, with a big billowy head and tons of lacing in the tulip. With the potent nose, I wonder again if I actually like Citra hops. There’s some vaguely too sharp and nearly mentholated in places to me, but maybe my senses are scrambled. At any rate, I found this to be a fairly enjoyable tripel for the most part. The notes of oaked chardonnay in there really help give it character, and it’s when these flavors assert themselves that the hops make more sense to me. A bit of malty sweetness peeks through, but this one’s dry and a bit bitter. Works for me.

Thanks to Dixonian for bringing this beer back to Texas from one of his trips to Southern California. I love Trade Winds Tripel and am really looking forward to this one. The beer pours a yellow color with a white head. The aroma is very nice and very hoppy for a tripel. I get a lot of apricot and resinous pine notes, with some bread and Belgian yeast notes mixed in. Definitely not your classic tripel aroma. The flavor is also unique and very nice. I get a lot of Belgian yeast and pepper, as well as some biscuit and bread from the malt. There is also a lot of flavor from the hops. The hop notes I get are mainly orange and apricot, but there is a little pine thrown in for good measure. Another very good aspect of the flavor is a subtle oak character which compliments the other flavors very well. The alcohol is well hidden. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

750 thanks to thome50. Orange body with thin white head. Orange and zest. Big but not too bold taste of oak. The tripel part - at least for the traditional tripel which is far sweeter - is not as pronounced. Still, quite tasty. I get the alcohol as well.
