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)

I don’t drink much of this style so don’t turn this down based on my rating. I didn’t think the spices helped the overall flavor. IMHO, they were a negative.

Quick3Beers (1465) - East Falmouth, Massachusetts, USA - OCT 26, 2017
Pours a nice dark straw from a bottle, thick white head. Sweet herbal aroma dissipates into a yeasty sweet basily wonder. Round, nearly oily mouthfeel. Pretty good beer.

balloonbuffoon (667) - - JUL 21, 2017
25.4floz (750ml) bottle, I think I paid about $9 for this several months ago, 8.6% ABV, 2016 edition, poured into a tulip glass. Looks excellent, rich yellow hue and large forming head quickly stabilizes. Bubblegum aroma has some semblance to Juicy Fruit. Palate is heavy, hot, and phenolic. Also, the taste lingers much too long, and is only so-so for my liking.

06-JUL-2017, bottle @home, from Kihoskh.
This has a bit of age. Don’t know how much. Not several years but at least one.
Huge White head on a beatiful hazy orange body. Malts, toast, citrus, Herbs. The herbal part not too much. Very creamy, full body, sweet. Wonderful.

Szulo (178) - Płock, POLAND - JUN 26, 2017
Panel w Carpe Kraft. W aromacie sporo nut ziołowych z przewagą rumianku, jest też dosyć słodko jakby miód wielokwiatowy. Rozgrzewające w przełyku aczkolwiek pozostawia wrażenie lekkiego, spore wysycenie, jest też trochę jakby nut gumy balonowej.
