COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The second release in our new Fresh Beer Limited series is available now! Emperor Norton is an eccentric ale brewed in honor of this beloved 19th century San Francisco denizen, best known for issuing his own currency, calling for the overthrow of the Federal Government, and prophesying a bridge connecting San Francisco and Oakland. Our tribute to him is a Belgian-style tripel brewed with California-grown summer apricots and generously dry-hopped with Citra and Hallertau Blanc hops. Enjoy in the company of unconventional friends!

A very nice dry Tripel. Pours a bright yellow with a thick white head. Smells amazing, citrus, tropical fruit and a bit of herbs. Taste is quite dry, and balanced. Lots of citrus, and a slightly. Not quite as flavorful as the smell suggests, but quite nice overall. Had on tap at IBUs. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Aged a bit, still fantastic tripel flavour, the yeast brings out a smooth fruity flavour. Very crushable. From Premier Gourmet.Mild hop finish integrated.

UPDATED: FEB 17, 2017 OH YES !!!! So soll es sein. Die dickste Süßsauerchinafoodkeule mitten auf den Kolben. Später soooo unfassbar tripelig sanft und voller verträumten White Wine Klatschen. Perfekt und süchtig machend. Hefig, extrem outstanding fruity und mit dem kleinen Funktwist. Yippie!!!! More!!!! Please!!! ✨😀. 0,66 Bomber from outer space.....under 9€ 👍. Love BEERGIUM 😎. Vanille, die logische Fortführung des DOLORES Saison Klassikers und acetonlastige Pfefferpeitsche fallen mir ebenfalls ein 💋. Also auch FARMERHOUSER aus Leidenschaft...

Pours an amber orange color with a distinct apricot aroma. Taste is a little boozy with a true apricot flavor. Slight tropical fruit flavor in the aftertaste.

Bulk_Carrier (6065) - Vermont, USA - DEC 8, 2016
Treated as a Belgian pale ale, this was poured into a tulip. The appearance was a brisk golden yellow color with a carbonation rising at a moderate pace to fill a one finger white foamy head that died off ever so slowly to fill small valleys here and there. Ringed messy lacing ran here and there. The aroma leaned towards the IPA/DIPA side of the wheelhouse with some white pepper and a sweet lemon pulp and then some light apricots. Grassy sweet hops tickle some white grapes with a fresh oily scent to it. Light pine at the end. The flavor blends white grapes, the apricots and lemon pulp to the grassy sweet hops nicely. Pine is starting to becomes slightly stronger. Hop oils are becoming stronger too. Strong hop oily aftertaste with a dry white grape finish, but not vinous. On the palate, this one sat about a light on the body with a medium carbonation, acceptable. Mild dryness seems inviting to the bitter hoppy portion over my tongue. Feels pretty good. Overall, nice Belgian pale ale, but this isn’t a tripel and oddly enough Almanac doesn’t even say that on their bottle, what the what, hmmmmm.....

22oz bottle 12/2/16 (Binny’s Plainfield)-42° in Trappist Glass-Pours a cloudy yellow with a small white head. Aroma of yeast, floral, and hops. Taste of the same with a bit more hops and caramel on the back end. this full bodied brew is pretty darn tasty.
