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.
