Spollen Angel is Uprights first foray into a classic abbey style. Named after friend and colleague Chris Spollen of Amnesia Brewing, this Belgian-style tripel uses the same yeast strain as the recently released Todo Modo but in a very different recipe, yielding our strongest brew to date. Look for lots of bubblegum and other fruity notes wrapped around Mt.Hood hops which provide contrasting floral and grassy flavors. While the Spollen Angel clocks in at 10.6% abv, it remains surprisingly drinkable thanks to an extra dry finish. Cheers Chris!

Draft at Pine Box. This shit is rare I guess, rate #5? Pale pour, clear, some lacing. Fruit, bubble gum, big, sticky, sweet. The usual. Nothing gross, nothing exciting. Heavy and syrupy. Way too sweet for me, and thick, and heavy. Disagree about the dry finish, FYI.

Solid beer. On tap at the brewery. Pours a bright clear yellow hue with a small white head. A big sweet malty nose, light phenols. The flavor is sugary sweet toast, oranges, pepper, lemons. A really big robust version of a triple, and a damn good one.

"A big, sweet triple that stays pretty close to prototypical, just a little bigger. Especially in the abv and the bubble gum departments. Light clove and spice, bready, crisp. Nice brew..."

Draft. Amber beer with a whitish head. Yeast and spice aroma with fruity esters and banana. Fruity flavor with yeast and spice. Medium bodied. Fruity esters and yeast linger with spice and light sugary malt.

On tap. Hazy dark golden with a tiny off white top. Scent is sugar and yeast with a fruity note. Taste is sweet with yeast, spices and candy.

Draft at Grain and Gristle, Portland. Pours a slightly cloudy golden color, no lacing. Aroma is slight barnyard funk. Heavy, syrupy body is thick and spicy. Finish is round, complex and long lasting, slightly musty, warming is very apparent. One of, if not the best American examples of tripels that Ive had. Really an excellent beer.
