Born and raised in Puerto Rico, Apprentice brewer Victor Arocho fell in love with craft beer the day he came to the US. A friend brought Victor to a bar in Boston, where he had his first sip and was forever hooked. For his release, Victor has chosen to brew a Belgian Style Tripel with a twist. His interpretation is made using not only barley, but also wheat, oats, and rye. Tres pa’ Cuatro means three to four in Spanish, a Tripel made with for malts. Salud!

Pours a mostly clear medium golden color with a a decent sized off white ehad that quickly dissipates to a cap on top. Smells of orange marmalade, light brown sugar, clove, coriander, spicy wheat malt, and Belgian yeasty phenols. The flavor is sweet up front with citrus fruits and light sugars. That gets cut pretty quickly with spicy wheat and rye as well as some sharp phenols from the yeast. Medium body with a moderate level of carbonation and a sweet sharp mouthfeel going on. Certainly a different take on a tripel, but it works pretty well, I enjoyed this.

From the 22 fl. oz. bottle dated January 2013. This beer is an evolving experience. The longer you take to drink it the more sensations you get. It pours a slightly hazy medium amber with a fizzy white head that settles down shortly. The aroma is of malts, grains, Belgian sugar, Belgian yeast, and a slight orange zing. The body is medium and smooth. At first I get the sweet grainy malts but as I pursue each sip I start picking up flavors such as licorice, meaty fruits, and bread, which all leads to a lingering moderately bitter finish. The alcohol is well integrated into it but there is a slight alcohol bite that creeps up as you make you way through the bottle. Yet it also has all the basic prerequisites of a Belgian Tripel. Nicely done by this Apprentice and cheers to White Birch for encouraging homebrewers to share their art.
