COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The usually peaceful St. Vrain River snakes out of the Rocky Mountains, winding mischievously towards our brewery. Named after Ceran St. Vrain, an 1800s trapper and trader in the valley, St. Vrain is our version of a classic Belgian Tripel. Light in color and lightly hopped using Celeia hops, a touch of malt sweetness contrasts the warm spiciness hidden within. What at first appears benevolent can manifest into a mighty serpent in waiting.

drfabulous (7219) - Lexington, Kentucky, USA - MAR 4, 2008
American tripels shouldnt be compared to their Belgian counterparts. Its like comparing the Beatles to Beatlemania (for the most part). But when you get one that is decent, fruity, light, you know its worth returning to. The Left Hand is kind of like that. It wont wow me, but if it was available around here, Id buy it every now and then. Beatlemania may impress someone who doesnt know the Beatles. This tripel may impress someone over dinner who doesnt know beer too well.

WeeHeavySD (3383) - Portland, Oregon, USA - FEB 29, 2008
Pricey Corked and Caged 750ml bought at the Whole Foods in Vienna Virginia and trecked back to CA with me. Shared with my girlfriend Cyn. Pours golden yellow iwth a 2 finger bright white head. Cyn noticed some sediment in her glass, less in mine. Nose is sweet and yeasty with a big of Citrus. Taste is sweet and full of citrus and some what sharp if you ask me. Decent beer, Tripels seem to be either done spot on awesome or they are mediocore, this is above mediocore but doesnt shine all the way.

glennmastrange (2765) - hobe sound, Florida, USA - DEC 16, 2007
Bottle. Aroma has light hay and grain for the malts, herbs and grass for hops dough for the yeast, and a fruitiness like pineapple. Head is white, foamy/creamy, fully lasting and has fair lacing. Color is clear gold with small particles. Flavor starts moderately sweet and lightly acidic, and the finish is moderately acidic and lightly bitter. Palate is light to medium, creamy and has a lively carbonation. An okay tripel, there a much better ones out there.
