COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Purple label. This tripel has been aged for 9 months in American oak barrels that were previously used to mature Malbec grown at Tiger Mountain, Georgia. During the maturation period in our climate controlled barrel room, the beer picks up new flavors from the barrels and their previous contents. The origin of the barrel and the grape varietal it contained both contribute their own nuances.

Very hazy amber beer, good pale cream coloured head. Palate is light and a little crisp. Nose of mild vanilla oak and orangey dessert wine. Mild malt cream and vanilla oak. Light red berry fruits with minerally sweet orangey dessert wine. Creamy fruit with subtle peach and mango. Another belter from Westbrook!

Big thanks to raveskdr for sharing this one. The nose carries a bit of light spice along with some nice red-wine notes. The flavor has a bit of spice and pepper notes, followed by light earthiness, oak, and some red wine. Light-medium body. Pretty good.

27-AUG-2012, bottle @Papsø. Golden with lasting off-white head. Wine-like aroma but also fruit and yeast. Taste not quite as wine-like, and the type of wine (grape) I cannot detect this time. Very nice carbonation in this one. Nice drink.
