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)

explosivedog (490) - Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - NOV 2, 2016
Serve from bottle. Aroma is floral, pepper and a sugary note. Aroma is a little hot pepper, lots of floral character. The citrus and spice coming from the Thai basil makes it feel more like a fairly nice saison rather than the surprise the label implies is coming. Still, quite nice.

Andrew196 (1538) - Katy, Texas, USA - OCT 23, 2016
Bomber to glass - beautiful! Pours a hazed orange-straw, strong, two finger white head. Aroma of Belgian yeast, coriander, banana, maybe clove. Medium bodied, kinda creamy, yet has a carbonated bite. Taste is tart sugar cane, sun drenched apricot and banana, hay, spice towards the end with a little bit of burn down the hatch. Good beer.
