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)

onceblind (8467) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JAN 5, 2017
Clear deep golden hue with a thin sticky white head. Bright estery funky Belgian hay nose with a light tree fruity undertone and a little grainy chewy funk. Smooth but large palate with a bit of Belgian blonde malt, a smooth gentle pepperiness and Belgian estery funk and a kiss of tree fruit. Very nicely done, complex and approachable and clean.

A yummy beer, this is tingly throughout. Wouldnt be able to identify the basil, but the beer is light and airy. Nice enough

Nose is spicy (must be the basil), yeasty, with some caramel and a hint of funk.Hazy gold with a big, pale tan, glass laciing head. Flavor is lightly sweet caramel and yeast with a hint of background bitterness. Tastes much better than it smells.
