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.

Bottle @ Toronado with James and Andrew. Pours a slight hazy blonde with nice white head. Aroma is vanilla-ish with slight hops. Taste is very sweet. Really evident that candied sugar was used. Slight belgian fruit undertones. The vanilla comes back in the finish.

Capped 750 from Beverages4Less in Santee, CA. Pours very hazy orange gold with a slight white head. Aroma is citrus and light stone fruit. Flavor is an interesting light fruit, with some citrus, and maybe a hint of oak. It is a little astringent. Much fresher and fruitier than most triples. Finishes with a touch of citrus zest?

Bottle split with Andrew and dallas at toronado. Pours a bright orange body with white lacing. Aroma is sweet vanilla, honey, banana, and spice. Mouthfeel is thin and slightly dry with notes of banana, sweet candy, and spicy clove.

Thanks turd. Cloudy bright yellow orange pour with one finger of creamy off white head. Nose is hoppy, very citrusy, orange flesh, yeasty. Nose isnít super clean. Notes of oak and citrus zest. Very homebrewish. Same flavor, medium body, zesty and peppery.

TURDFERGUSON (4024) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - AUG 25, 2011
Bottle from a trade with LtDan. Thanks! Very hazy/cloudy orange with thick white head. Nose is sweet and hoppy, but in a disjointed broken vacuum cleaner sort of way. Flavor is sweet. Citra hops make a light appearance but donít really help the beer in any way, just make it more messy. A bit hard to drink.

BeerLimey (2154) - California, USA - AUG 15, 2011
[On Tap] Clouded yellowish hue, good head formation. Big piney spiced hop aroma. Good blend of sweet tropical fruit and bitter grapefruit citrus, lingering slightly sugarry into the aftertaste.

golubj (1377) - San Mateo, California, USA - AUG 14, 2011
Bottle. The pour was blond with a good amount of white head. Aroma was some sugar and bubblegum/banana yeast. Very typical of a belgian triple. Flavor had the banana sweetness as well. It was a joy to drink.

Draft @ blind lady. Very slightly hazed golden, thin white head. Big juicy hop nose of apricot and nectarine laying upon a thin blanket of belgian yeast fumes. Flavors are again filled with juicy, fruity hops with the belgian yeast behind and a touch of alcohol. Not until the very finish does it make itself overtly belgian though as the hops are the focus point here. More a belgian ipa than a trippel imo, but since I hate belgian ipas and trippels, ill say that this isnít really all that bad...though I remember reading on a bottle it was aged in oak, but I donít get all that much oak influence...

LtDan (1806) - Los Angeles County, California, USA - AUG 13, 2011
Appearance: Pours a bright semi cloudy yellow gold with a small layer of white.

Aroma: A real time fight in my nostrils. Is it citra hops or bruery yeast? Its both.

Taste: Spicy and citrusy hops, Bruery yeast, oak tanins. Metallic bitter finish.

Mouth: Active lively bubbles full bodied, almost creamy.

Overall: I really enjoyed the added layer provided by the oak, I still am not a fan of the particular style. I think this beer will hold up for a few years, and might even become more drinkable for me as it mellows.
