Moa St Josephs is a classic Belgian Tripel. Strong spice, caramel and banana ester characters create complex flavours and aromas which are heightened by its extended bottle conditioning period. The combination of bittering hops, malt and candy sugars compliment the high alcohol content and integrate into a very approachable and drinkable Tripel.

Tasting Notes
Moa St Josephs is a true abbey style tripel with strong clove and spice flavours apparent with a noticeable fruit ester profile. Smokey phenolic characters can be detected. The bitterness is designed to be complimentary rather than dominant. Moa St Josephs is a complex beer that has no added herbs or spices, and is best served at approximately 8˚C in a tulip glass.

Light haze on this gold beer. Residual white head. Palate is smooth with low carbonation. Pretty sweet malts, even for a Tripel. Light dry floralness, touch of spice. Sweet dried fruits. Fairly neutral finish. Pretty tasty but slightly sweet.

Papsoe (25056) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JUN 15, 2010
Bottle 37,5 cl. Courtesy of Ungstrup. Pours golden with a slight haze and a white head. Sweet fruity nose with a massive alcohol. Very solid body, notes of rotten fruits and yeast with bad phenols. Boozy finish. A rather unpleasant Triple. 150610

Leighton (22329) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 21, 2016
Bottle shared in London - big thanks to the Kernel RotBox. Pours clear copper with pretty much no head. Lots of rich, sugary bread and fruit in the nose, some apples, dough, yeast, wheat, dates. Medium to heavy sweet flavor with light alcohol bump, a little apple sauce, doughy wheat. Full bodied, lightly chewy, with soft carbonation. Lightly warming on the finish, sugary, bready, more wheat, some toffee. A heavy-hitting tripel. Not super drinkable, but not terrible.

fiulijn (21292) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 6, 2014
Draught at the Pumphouse, Richmond
Hazy blond color with a golden hue. Lightly spicy, too much alcohol, lean body, a bit oily.
Not exciting.

Theydon_Bois (20655) - Hazlemere, the lower Xhitlerns, Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - JAN 21, 2016
Bottle split at LKS, thanks to Mother Arch rot box, 21/01/16. Clear golden orange with little in the way of a head. Nose is earthy fruit, hint of orange, straw, light caramel, touch old. Taste comprises figs, dates, caramel, marzipan, dried apricot, spice, fruit loaf. Medium + bodied, flat and lifeless, sweet licks in a light booze driven close So so
