Our Tripel was inspired by the hard working Artisan brewers in monasteries across Belgium. It is said that the Belgian Tripel is regarded by the Belgian ale drinker as a style itself. Our Tripel is a pale colored ale made with Pilsen malt and a traditional addition of Belgian candy sugar, then hopped with German Noble and Saaz hops. This ale has a light malt nose and a subtle hop aroma. In traditional fashion, this Tripel has been conditioned in the bottle to create natural carbonation and long-term stability.
The Tripel pairs well with fine brie and camembert cheeses, spicy Cajun food, crab cakes, shell fish and roast turkey. Delicious with non-chocolate desserts like apricot-amaretto tart, baklava, Linzer torte.

Enjoyed a bottle of the beer in a short glass at the brewery in Moab. The beer had a rich golden color with a modest sized white head with average retention, cling, and lacing. Its aroma featured banana, bubble gum, and some lemon and a happy blend of grassy and grainy notes. The taste had a modest sweetness with banana and bubble gum balanced with a sour-bitter mix of grainy flavors. It was a fairly wet beer with average carbonation and a smooth finish.

Growler @ RBSG 2015. Thanks, Doug. Orange in color with white foam. Sweet caramel, simple syrup, and honey. Kind of sticky and sweet. Really heavy oxidation such as cardboard. Tastes like grape juice and apple, along with all the syrupy, goopy malts. A lot of caramel and cardboard bitterness.

mcberko (16965) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 22, 2015
750mL bottle, pours a dark murky orangey brown with a small white head. Aroma is oxidized, with stone fruits showing up that are massively oxidized. Flavour is so massively oxidized - so stale on the stone fruits. Cant drink this. Mightve been better fresh.
