COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
cask, keg (7%), bottled Three Bristol Craft Breweries have come together to brew a very special beer for this year’s Bristol Beer Festival. The “Bristol Craft Brewers” are Jon Comer from Arbor Ales, Chris Kay and Brett Ellis from the Bristol Beer Factory and Chris Thurgeson from Zero Degrees. The beer will simply be known as “Collaboration”, and is the amalgamation of several styles of beer. Arbor Ales Jon Comer says “we are calling it a ‘New World Tripel’ a combination of Belgian & American styles”. "Collaboration” is based on a classic Belgian style, strong golden ale but given a twist. It is being brewed with ingredients gathered from all over the world, a homage to a time when Bristol was one of the trading capitals of the world. The beer brings together styles of beer from England, Belgium & the US, and ingredients from all over the World, English malted barley, Belgian yeast and hops from America and New Zealand, toasted (toasted in Zero Degrees pizza oven) oats & coriander.

Beersiveknown (5284) - NORTHERN IRELAND - JAN 4, 2012
Drunk 24/12/11 clear amber-brown with bubbly white head and gentle carbonation. Plenty of yeasty esters on the nose with noticable pineapple, but also some melon. In the mouth its a typical triple, without the cloying sweetness sometimes found in the style, there’s a balance bitterness from the addition of new world hops, though their flavour has long since faded. A lovely beer, which I suspect would have been even tastier fresh.

Bottle at Fin & Loz’s tasting with Jan, Charlotte, Craig, Stella & kids consumed Saturday 22.10.11 I picked this up at Favourite Beers, Cheltenham Spring 2011 Nose is very Belgian like but hoppier, though there is a spiciness. Slight numbingness on the tongue, some lavender, soft carbonation in mouth. Great hoppy bite, strength starts to become apparent. A7 A4 T8 P4 Ov16 3.9

Simply awesome - triple but with the right oomph of hops. Can’t quite believe how good this really is... ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Leighton (21089) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 15, 2011
Cask at CPK. Pours a rich gold with a soft, white head. Sweaty malts on the nose, hints of ripe fruits, maybe caramel. Rich flavor, though not in all good ways. Good dose of bready malts, some boozy fruit, slight earthy bitterness. Full in body with fine carbonation. Medium warm finish, some woody malts, dry fruits, slight alcohol, subtle grass and earth. OK, but nothing special.

ladnewton (1937) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 5, 2011
Cask via handpump, at CASK Pub & Kitchen on 21st May 2011. Clear amber with very little head. Fairly sweet but pleasantly so, richly malty with soft fruit notes in-mouth. Liquid is introduced with a blackcurrant kick. A little yeast in aroma, lemon-citric finish, but this remains rounded by the maltiness of the beer. A rather pleasant, smooth mouthfeel.

3.9
alikocho (10) - Rosebush, WALES - MAY 30, 2011
bottle. Deep gold with small white head. Floral citrus aroma with light phenolics. Slightly biscuity malt aroma. Sweet, but with dry finish. Pronounced american hop flavour. Noticeable alcohol warmth. A decent beer, but too hoppy and not high gravity enough to really pass it of as a tripel. More fitting as a BELGO-IPA.
