COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The White Birch Brewing Collaboration Series allows us the privilege to work with other passionate brewers, bringing together our ideas and creating unique beers. For this release weíve partnered with Greg Oullette, Brewmaster at Marthaís Exchange in Nashua, N.H. Our goal was to blend a Belgian style Tripel with classic American hops. Drawing on all of our brewing experiences, we bring you the best of both worlds. We hope you enjoy this unique beer as much as we do.

On tap at Poppers At The Mill. Hazy yellow pour into a shaker pint glass. Very mellow nose of slight bread and yeast. Fizzy mouthfeel. Belgian yeast is all I taste. A little spice at the end. Not over powering, just not my style. Worth a shot. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

In short: A yeasty, sweet and bitter amber IPA with grapefrity and grassy hops. Decent beer.
How: Bottle 22oz. Consumed soon after purchase but already more than 4 months after bottling date.
The look: Cloudy dark amber topped by a medium off-white head with medium retention.
In long: Nose is candied fruits and fresh fruits and some phenols. Taste has a lot of candied fruits, residual sugars, honeyed cereals, some dried fruits, bittersweet orange peels, a little alcohol burn, peppery spiciness, white grapefruits, lots of grass. Plenty of sweet flavors on the attack but quickly the hops kick-in with a sharp grapfruity bitterness and also the sensation of chewing on a mouthful of freshly cut grass. Some residual sugars on the come-back. A bit too yeasty for how I like my IPAs. Overall a pretty decent Double IPA that has its own personality. Is White Birch improving or is this beer good because it is a collaboration with an outside brewer? Not a bad beer, maybe White Birch will one day make a very good beer, Iím still hoping for a miracle and score a great beer from White Birch and win the lottery, which would really be a miracle since Iíve never bought a ticket.

22oz bottle in a shaker. Pours cloudy golden with a lacy, off-white head. Aroma of citrusy and floral hops, spicy yeast, and caramel malts. Flavor a nice blend of an IPA and a Belgian beer. Average texture. A good beer.

Pours a slightly hazy deep amber/copper color with a decent fluffy white head that shows remarkable resilience. Smells of sweet sugary and honey like malt with some spicy earthy and citrusy hops with just a hint of yeasty phenols. Taste is sweet up front. Honey and brown sugar vie for attention against an onslaught of orange and citrus. A bit of pepper midway with some yeasty notes and a hint of alcohol before a long lingering spicy earthy hoppy finish. Medium body with a moderated level of carbonation and a sweet just shy of syrupy mouthfeel. Iíve had this a couple of times and every time I sample it I enjoy it a just a bit more. Great out of the box beer!

From a 22 oz. bottle marked: February 2012, Batch One, No. 1272. It pours a slightly cloudy medium amber-copper with a long-lasting foamy head. The aroma is quite mellow considering the way it is defined. There is a sweet malt character blended with yeast and subtle hops. The body is around medium but it is also quite creamy. The taste brings out the tartness of a good Tripel and ends with a dry hop character. Quite a fascinating beer.
