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.

From bottle, no 6 at Papsoes blindtasting. Pours hazy orange and with a lacing white head. Yeasty and almost dough like aroma. Slight citric. Flavour is sweet caramel malty and with a slight yeasty note, somewhat classic belgian triple yet light. Finish holds a continued soft yeasty and caramel flavour lingering into the finish with a bit of bitterness.

Bottled (9.6%). Hazy pale orange colour, small white head. Aroma is honey, hops, some wheat and fruity. Flavour is fruity, honeyish and hoppy. A trippel indeed, but feels quite empty somehow. Hides its alcohol quite well.

UPDATED: DEC 4, 2007 2007-11-30, Papss Blind Tasting, corked bottle, 6-3-6-3-13=31
Hazy blond color, thin creamy head. Light aroma, typical of a Belgian Ale. Smooth mouthfeel, some sweet malt, a special character given by the yeast (like dryness and astringency), a bit spicy. Not too bad.

2006-12-18, corked bottle, 7-4-8-4-15=38
Hazy blond color. A Tripel brewed to style, with a delicate aroma including coriander and light citrus, medium body strength, some sweetness, spicy and malty dry taste.

Theydon_Bois (18953) - Hazlemere, the lower Xhitlerns, Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - FEB 13, 2015
Bottle split at the Cotteridge Convention, thanks to Garrold, 24/01/15. Clear pale golden with a moderately appointed off white head. Nose is straw, citric rind, spice, grapefruit, light caramel. Taste comprises yeast esters, bitter orange, farmy, straw. Medium bodied, fine carbonation, semi drying close. Ok for style, masks ABV well and more importantly for me doesnt get overly sweet.
