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)

Hazy golden amber. Nose of Belgian yeast spice, citrus fruit. Flavor is light sweet malt with citrus fruit esters and light spice. Fairly well attenuated, but sweet and fruity.

Doofgoblin (429) - Chevy Chase, Washington DC, USA - JUN 28, 2015
Overall, itís a good tripel experiment. The aroma is typical tripel with some extra floral, spice similar to jasmine rice. Taste is were it loses me a little--I donít really like the addition of the rice because itís noticeable. It adds a sweetness that is a little sickly and over the top. The other spices are nice but mostly destroyed by the sweetness. Finish is surprisingly thick and lingering.

Lot going on with this one. Murky brown gold. Nose of banana, grapes, and herbs. Taste was big candi sugar sweetness, Belgian yeast, Thai spices, and fruitiness. Sticky, big mouthfeel. Interesting tripel.

pours unclear bright golden with a nice off-white cap, frothy at times, some retention and lacing. white grape and pear fruit juices, granulated golden candi, spicy belgian yeast, lots of bitter and woodsy spices and herbs, few fragrant ones - shy basil character which is fine with me; alcohol, honeydew melons, tropical passionfruits. average carbonation, medium body - oily; semi-sweet, astringent herbal-spicy finish. very nice spiced tripel - cohesive. much enjoyed!

MadRobin (2392) - Silver Spring, USA - JUN 16, 2015
On tap at Scion in Silver Spring, MD. Lightly hazy, muted gold with a small off-white head and good lacing. Aroma of yeast, bread, lemon, herbs, cloves and light fruit. Taste of tart light fruit, cloves, yeast, banana, herbs (Thai basil, I assume), orange, lemon and bread. Medium body and and high/medium carbonization that foams up in your mouth. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
