COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our Summer seasonal, Trade Winds Tripel is a Belgian-style Golden Ale with a Southeast Asian twist. Instead of using candi sugar (typical for such a beer), we use rice in the mash to lighten the body and increase the gravity, and spice with Thai Basil. The result is an aromatic, digestible and complex beer made for a lazy summer evening. (ABV: 8%, IBU: 25, SRM: 5, Release: Summer, Format: 750 mL bottles)

Pours a clear hold with a fat two fingers of frothy white head diminishing rapidly to a thin skim and no head. Nose is spice, pepper, candy sugar. Taste is sweet and slightly spicy, coriander and grass. Full bodied and sticky, with a spicy finish. Not really what I was expecting and not really what I would characterise as a tripel - not dry and light the way I’d expect, but instead sweet and tending to heavy. A nice beer, no doubt, but a bit more of a Belgian strong ale, than a tripel.

Big inviting yeasty nose. Opaque orange color with a foamy head. Yeast agogo right of the bat in the taste. nice sour tinge with spices. Leaves a slight bitter orange peel after taste. Not getting the basil. Excellent brew.

Review done up a tree in my backyard. Looks like a belgian beer. Taste like a beer....... Belgian beer. My foot hurts after breaking through a board on my chair that I used to climb this tree. Don’t taste any of the rice or basil. Good beer nothing more to say. Now how do I get out of tree.

Light retention and light lacing. Smells of lemon grass, straw and cereal. Tastes of grain, spices, lemon and cereal. Spicy aftertaste. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

KansaiBeerLvrs (2337) - Kyoto, JAPAN - JUL 11, 2014
600 yen for 120 ml, bottle at Hanshin Seed Event. Slightly opaque gold with a thick creamy off-white head. Yogurt, fruity, spicy Belgian yeast aroma. Wow, soft round spritzy carbonation & full mouthfeel. Tasty fruity, banana, yoghurt, a bit sour & tart. I liked it & was surprised to hear it was 8%!

VertBaconStrips (2100) - Assat, Alberta, CANADA - JUL 5, 2014
Sitting 10ft up a giant tree seemed like a great idea until super sized brads foot destroyed his chair/ladder. Its pretty thick, lots of angles, a bit rough around the edges, leafy, but a bit sparce at the bottom. No woody smell. But it has some youngness amiss the senior side. Musky spicy attempt to get where we are. But enough about the tree - decent almost unadventuous beer.

Small lasting foamy white head atop a cloudy deep golden body. Nose of orange, nail polish and vanilla. Very estery. Good lemon zest and lasting citrus finish. Good. Bottle from Metro Liquor University Heights.
