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 1800’s 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.

Oakes (18543) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 23, 2008
Cloudy beige with a low, fluffy head. Dusty nose, with a slight jasmine accent. Quite sweet, though with some alcohol and hop dryness. Light florals and some background yeast add character. There’s a slight warmth in the finish. Sweet, but interesting.

2.8
Beershine (5224) - VANCOUVER, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 20, 2008
Hazy honey gold with mid-sized off-white fizzy head. Aromas of sweet banana, custard, nutmeg, and rotting lychees. Lively effervescence, soft carbonation, slightly sticky palate. Insipidly sweet, both in nose and palate. Where is the spiciness, the complexity? It’s all juice and syrup, very disappointing.

A way too sweet Belgian, thanks Jon for bringing. Sweetish smell, tons of malts. Triple gone too sweet.

michael-pollack (4959) - King of Prussia, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 15, 2008
750ml Bottle: Sweet fruity aroma. Smells of apples, fruit, yeast, candi sugar, honey, and light spices. Poured golden/amber in color with a small white head that lasted throughout. Cloudy. Sparkling. Full of small, medium, and large particles. Heavily sweet flavor. Tastes of fruit, honey, candi sugar, yeast, cloves, spices, and a hint of vanilla. Medium to full body. Viscous, slightly sticky, then slightly chalky texture. Sweet, lightly dry finish.

3.6
MaltDawg (1344) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - MAY 22, 2008
2006 bottle. Slightly cloudy light straw with a bit of suspended funk. Caramel and candy sugar aromas with some sour citrusy yeast phenolics and earthy hops. Caramel and candy sugar sweetness with apple, pear and some citrus in the flavor.The fruit and candy sugar sweetness drys fairly quickly for a reasonably dry finish with some hop bitterness. Very nice.

3.7
maniac (3800) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - MAY 18, 2008
2006 Bottle. Slightly hazy light golden body with a medium creamy white head. Fruity, candi sugar aroma with light caramel. Very sweet caramel, with fruity notes, light apple and possibly pear and a bit more candi sugar, fairly dry finish, with light bitterness. Medium body with moderately carbonation.

3.7
Drake (14059) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - APR 27, 2008
Bottle from Westpark in Richmond. Slightly hazy lemon-orange color. Yeast, apple, citrus and caramel aroma. Very assertive raisin and caramel taste. Well balanced and complex.

2.6
Butters (4063) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - APR 23, 2008
2006 bottle. Pours a briliantly clear pale gold with fluffy off-white head. Picking up some horse blanket on the nose with citrus fruits. Medicinal and mouth puckering. Very yeasty flavor (don’t usually mind that but I didn’t care for this particular strain used). Lingering bitterness. I love Left Hand and belgian tripels, but this one just didn’t do it for me.

3.2
WisconsinBeer (716) - St. Paul, Minnesota, USA - APR 18, 2008
Cloudy hazy yellow color. Minimal head. First impression of this beer is that it’s a bit tart, more toward the apple sourish type fruits as opposed to the creamy banana yeasty flavors. Good, but seems a bit like a fruit that needs to ripen. Light bodied. Mild yeast flavors. Some candy sugar notes. Overall decent.
