COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our Summer seasonal, Trade Winds Tripel is a Belgian-style Golden Ale with a Southeast Asian twist. Instead of using candi sugar (typical for such a beer), we use rice in the mash to lighten the body and increase the gravity, and spice with Thai Basil. The result is an aromatic, digestible and complex beer made for a lazy summer evening. (ABV: 8%, IBU: 25, SRM: 5, Release: Summer, Format: 750 mL bottles)

belgian candy sugar flavor with a hazy golden colour, in UK. hahaha. Thin white head with a watery minerally appearance. Adjectives. Its quite sweet tasting for me to like it too much, esp. as far as beer goes. I guess most of the high scores are from sugar loving America!
