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.

Concealer (1222) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JUN 13, 2013
Pours from the bottle a light golden color with a foamy white head. Smells of sweet malt, citrus, spice and a little alcohol. Taste is crisp and clean; sweet malt, orange, coriander and yeast. Slightly bitter and alcohol-y aftertaste. A wonderful tripel.

Leighton (19802) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 15, 2015
Bottle shared at the Cotteridge Convention 2015. Pours clear, pale yellow with a creamy white head. Sugary pale bread in the nose, wheat, dough, light yeast expression. Big sweet flavor with more pronounced Belgian yeast now, some alcohol, ripe lemon, banana. Full bodied with fine to average carbonation. Warming and sugary on the finish with notes of alcohol, doughy wheat bread, mild phenols. Pretty OK tripel.

bubbleflubber (2202) - Swannanoa, North Carolina, USA - FEB 19, 2015
Pours hazy straw into the glass, with an initial fizzy head that diminishes to a tight ring of suds. The nose is of hay, sourdough and light yeasty esters. Melon notes on the tongue are followed by fruity esters, hay, light barnyard grains and finish with pie spices. The mouthfeel is soft and round, medium-bodied with enough carbonation to provide activity on the palate. A very decent Abby Tripel; complex, substantive, and amply provides the necessary complexities for the style. Quite quaffable and yummy. Thoroughly enjoyable.

teromous (119) - - FEB 15, 2015
Appearance: Hazy light golden color with a thin white head that fades quickly.

Aroma: Slight metallic scent, an alcohol aroma, and kind-of a peach aroma.

Taste: There is a faint caramel sweetness that is a bit watered down. There is a light tang and a bit of banana pudding flavor.

Mouthfeel: It has a nice thick coating feeling on the palate. Not quite as dry as I normally get out of a tripel, but nice.

Overall: A decent drink but pulled in too many directions like taffy, and very thin in the flavor department.

Theydon_Bois (18189) - 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.

The taste is bitter, grainy, straw, spice, icing sugar, alcohol hit, apple pie, pear and residual sugar with a sweet, warming finish. Medium body and average carbonation. Not as sweet as I had feared. OK.

BlackHaddock (6748) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - JAN 27, 2015
24th Jan 2015: shared bottle at the Cotteridge Wine meet, cheers Gary. Golden hue to this brew, getting hazier with each new pour, white head. The nose was both fruity and yeasty as was the taste, some mixed spice traces also. Pleasant without setting the world alight, had a few Left Hand beers now, seems a good brewery.
