COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Taking elements from two classic Belgian styles, we’ve crafted a beer that incorporates the best characteristics of both tripels and dubbels. Trubbel boasts the strength and spiciness of a tripel and the rich malt character of a dubbel. We brew this uncommon ale with a classic Belgian yeast strain, dark Belgian candi sugar, and a unique blend of specialty malts, producing subtle biscuit, chocolate, and caramel overtones. Available November through January beginning in even years only.

Muddy dark brown with medium tan head. Aroma is medium sweet, berry fruity, sour yeasty. Taste is very sour, blueberry, yeasty, light cherry. Full body. Calls itself a cross between a dubbel and trippel, but there's some definite lambic quality to this.

This brew pours with an opaque dark brown body topped by a medium thick head with a good amount of lacing left on the glass. The aroma is slightly sweet yet sour and malty with a slight spiciness. The flavor is slightly bitter and sour with a slight spiciness. Medium bodied and smooth yet dry.

Brown and clear with a tan head. Pissy, nutty and sour hop aroma. Flavor is sour malts, hops and fruits. Medium body, slight carbonation. Pretty good, but I guess I don't totally get this style yet.

amazing stuff. the 1 litre swingtop bottle was a good start. belgian sour ale character - wood and cherry aroma, deep murky brown and imposing. tastes initially of cherry with a big burst of sourness. some surprise chocolate and tomato juice flavours came through later in the glass. was just staggered by this - the hich alcohol was evident but not out of place. cultivated some of the yeast and it made a great batch of home brew so that was an added bonus rather than a subtracted bonus

Leather and chocolate aroma, sour barnyard taste with a strawberry nuance, awesome, full mouthfeel and a super smooth palate.
