COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
For this recipe, our brewers drew inspiration from Belgian Golden Strong Ale, a style we love. We sought out the very best ingredients, sourcing wild honey from the African Bronze Honey Company, a member of the Fair Trade Federation and a certified B-Corp. The Seville orange peel is freshly ground 24 hours prior to the day we brew by the Old Town Spice Shop, less than one mile from our Fort Collins, Colorado brewery. In the end, we created a big, sweet and citrusy Belgian-style Tripel with thoughtfully sourced ingredients.

This is a decent enough belgian-style tripel with honey orange. But I don't see anything here that is especially distinguishing. It has the requisite yeasty Belgian e qualities of a tripel. It's good enough if you happen to run into it and have one but I wouldn't go out of my way to find one.

Bottle - clear gold with lively carbonation - heavy sweet honey in the nose, with candied citrus, white pepper, and the mild presence of other phenols (plastic) and esters (clove) - flavor is sweet, but there his heavy spiciness and earthy phenolics that try to balance, overall not quite winning out, but keeping it from being cloying - honey provides a clean but strong sweetness - finish is orange, pepper, mild alcohol warmth - it's okay.

Clear brilliant golden hue under a thick foamy white head. Big strong phenolic Belgian golden grain aroma with some heat behind it, with a fair dose of honey and tree fruity esters. Smooth full blonde malty flavor that’s grainy and boozy and honeyedbwoth a whisper of orange candy at the end. Pretty plain and standard. A decent Tripel but forgettable.

Poured a slightly hazy orange color with a white creamy head. Nice orange aroma with a touch of banana and honey. Taste is creamy and sweet with the alcohol hidden well. Nice honey and orange flavors. Aftertaste has some candy and more orange.

Clear gold pour, small, off white head. Aroma of raw doughy yeast, bread, stone fruit, earth, honey straw, citrus zest and a hint of under ripe banana. Flavor is sweet, full honey up front; then bread dough; floral, citrus and spicy hops; dusty stone fruit and earthy, zesty citrus. Medium to heavy body, slightly syrupy, slightly chalky feel with a pleasant boozy warmth and light to medium, somewhat sharp carbonation. Pretty good stuff, works really well as a Tripel and the additions, while noticeable, don't stand in the way, but I can't really say that I think they add much.

On Tap at PreFunk Boise. Clear deep golden orange. A trace of a white head. Definite Belgian tripel yeast aroms and flavors. A little honey sweetness and hints of orange. Pretty straight forward and even. Quite good Tripel base actually. Impressed.

Bottle from Beer Run. Hazy orange, not much of a head. Aroma of orange juice, honey, spice, bready malt. Taste is bready malt, banana, spice, honey, citrus. Medium bodied, well balanced.

12oz bottle. At 10%, I'm a little scared of this one from the start. Filtered orange-tan body. Foamy white/off-white head. Boozy honey aroma. The filtration helps a lot in keeping it drinkable. Doesn't have the effervescence or body of a true Belgian Ale, but the flavors are pretty nice. Orange and honey are well incorporated. Nice flowery esters among the honey tones. Pretty good.
