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.

The appearance of this beer is really good with a hazy, pale, orange color to it. The head is a great white hue with a good amount of carbonation and a long lasting lacing on the glass. The smell of the beer is outstanding because it is something that Iíve never experineced before with a great blend of citrusy orange, mild hoppiness and a lingering grapefruit smell, an outstanding blend. The taste blows you away with a mellow sweet orange that transitions into a mild grapefruit then into a hoppiness and mild oakey flavors. The mouthfeel hangs around with the sweet ornage and grapefruit that slides into a bitterness of the hops. Overall, this is one of the best beers I HAVE EVER TASTED because it is so original with the mixture of flavors. If you havenít tried this beer, go GET IT.

This one has aged pretty darn well. Citra hops bring some tropical fruit and the belgian yeast brings powerful fruity esters and some nice spice. Glad I didnít just crack this one fresh as all of the flavors seem really well integrated and the alcohol is undetectable.

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.

On tap @ Toronado: Poured a glowing yellow hue that was hazy while a thin delicate layer of head rested on top. In the aroma, a scent of girlie perfume along with a squeeze of citrus perhaps grapefruit comes through nicely upon the nose. The taste is pure yeast with a heavy serving of spicy Belgian yeast that showcases a mixture of spices such as clove, ginger root, and a dash of pepper or green herbs. Definitely an Abbey Tripel that stands out from the rest.

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.

This one is full of citrus hop taste and aroma. Mixed in there is some pineapple and grape. Oak comes through nice and big. Vanilla rounds out the experience. This is a different kind of Tripel. I really hope they come out with it again down the line. Maybe in their provisions line. Iím out of bottles and I want more. If youíre looking for a well rounded Tripel, donít look here. If you want a big flavorful Tripel with a huge hop kick and a good oak presense, this is for you.

A - Pours a bright and cloudy golden-orange color with a finger of frothy white head atop. The head fades down fairly slowly leaving behind some good lace. S - Aroma is a mix of citrus hops, grapefruit, oak, Belgian yeast esters, some spices, and a bit of fruity esters. T - Starts off with some citrus hops with some grapefruit flavor and bitterness with some Belgian yeast esters in the background. Through the middle, some oak comes through with some more spice, light bready malt, and some fruity esters. The finish is a mix of citrus hops, bitterness, Belgian yeast, oak, and some spice that linger. M - Medium bodied with moderate-plus carbonation. Feels smooth with a bitter, dry, and lightly spicy finish. D - Very drinkable. The strong Citra hops in this one add a really nice element to the Tripel style. The oak also gives the beer some good complexity.

Hazy Golden pour with bright creamy white head. Light body. Sweet fruity nose, pineapple + pear. Not cloyingly sweet. Slightly bitter slightly viscous finish. Definitely can taste the Citra hops. very nice.

I really like this beer. It has the woodsy, roasty notes of the oak and the zesty lemon flavors of the citra. But they both intermingle nicely. The aroma is strong and it pours beautifully with a thick head of foam.

I enjoyed this beer thoroughly. Itís drier than a normal tripel but it works quite well. The beer is oaky and vinous with light stone fruits and tropical hop flavors. Fresh grain. Drying taste with a mildly bitter finish. Iím a fan of this take on the style.
