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)

Flaske: Fantastisk flot trippel. Kæmpe skumhoved og en dejlig frisk duft af gær, en smule basilikum og lidt humle. Smagen er frisk med en klassisk spids smag der dog stadig tydeligt er anderledes end andre trippels. Virkelig et flot indspark til en ølstil. Elegant og balanceret. Det eneste minus er at øllen ikke har godt af at stå i glasset, med dette menes at alkoholen bliver for dominerende ved høkere temperaturer. Et normalt problem for trippler, men med en stor flaske er det et meget lille minus.

Received via a trade. Great Aroma when pored in to a DF snifter Well balanced and a great twist to an iconic style.

Aged one year. Pours a tawny yellow with explosive carbonation. A very pillowy white head gets in the way of an ample aroma of spices, malt, and belgian yeasty goodness. Taste is much smoother than when sampled fresh. The spicing has died down quite a bit, which is a good thing. I can’t stand most of The Bruery beers fresh. This is a good solid Tripel given enough time.

Soonah (1120) - Tulsa, Oklahoma, USA - SEP 23, 2009
On tap at the Yardhouse in Long Beach. Came out clear and slightly darker gold than a standard pale lager. A thin white cap of foam appeared and quickly vanished leaving a wispy galaxy swirl behind to create spots of lacing. The aroma was light yeast and fruits. The flavor was herbal, with some light yeast and sugars. Thin and pretty refreshing. Not the most robust tripel I’ve encountered but it was pretty nice.

750ml bottle split with Thor, God of Thunder. Didn’t properly spin the bottle so the first pour was aggressively alcoholic and dry. The bottom pours a murky yellow brown color.. Flavor is yeasty, typical Belgian spices, and orange peel. Didn’t pick up on much Asian influence as others did.

KyotoLefty (7368) - Kyoto, JAPAN - SEP 13, 2009
75 cl bottle. Pale gold to orange color with lace. Yeasty malt with honey, messy aroma. Thin, light malt with light honey, light fruit, spices and herbs. Sloppy and unrefined.

Bottle @ Bailey’s Taproom... Poured clear golden with a white head. Aroma of leafy, herbal cloves and a pastry-like sweetness. Foamy, fluffy, dry palate. Noticeable alcohol, fruits and creamy malts dominate the flavors. Chalky with spices and a lactic acidity. Grape-like fruits meshed with tropical fruits. Really awesome tripel!

hopdog (9642) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 8, 2009
750ml bottle. Poured a medium to deeper and hazy golden color with a smaller sized white head. Aromas of spices (ginger and basil) and ’sweaty’. Tastes of the same spiciness, citrus, and a little fruity. Some alchol in the finish.
