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.

Murky dark brown hue with very nice tan head and some lace. Aroma is sort of fruity lambic with some sour cherry, wood, dusty yeast and light Belgian candi. A soft yet lively beer with a balanced tart fruit and sweet malt flavor combination, minor yeast undertone. Full-body with a nice mouthfeel. I liked this beer as it pushed the envelope within the genre, try it once.

Draft at the brewery. Nice malt character throughout the whole beer. Alcohol was hidden rather well.

EithCubes (4813) - New Jersey, USA - JAN 22, 2013
1 pint, 9.36 oz. bottle. Malty-yeasty nose with light spice, sparkling fruity Belgian yeast out in front of a touch of yellow sunshine, but there’s light and dark roast, too. Pours a hazy amber that settles brown with transparency around the hips, rocky tan head, just gorgeous on the whole. Lightish body, beautiful Belgian yeast at the fore, alcohol extremely well hidden, fruit is extremely bright. Light malty chocolate and herbal notes in with the mineral. Restrained sweetness, low bitterness but it’s a very tasty one in the aftertaste. Advertised as having the spiciness of a trippel, maltiness of a dubbel, but they also seemed to have plucked the best of each yeast variation; this is a great example of wonderful subtlety in the soft middle and on the margins.

Appears nearly black in glass, small, tan head with some nice lace. Tastes like chocolate covered bananas, coffee, and malt. Really solid. After taste lingers pleasantly.

This is the best brew I have ever had by Yards. Pours deep red, almost purple in color. Aroma is sweet candy yeast and malts. Taste is chocolaty, yet fruity. Very smooth on palate, sticky finish with slight alcohol burn.
