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)

A good take on the tripel. Hazy appearence and nicely spiced. Worth a try.

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.

Grassy floral aroma in a golden pour. Subtle addition of rice and basil make this an excellent variation on the style.

There are aspects of this beer that are quite impressive. Namely it’s appearance, and aroma. The taste is alright, but the aroma is where this beer shines. I’m guessing the Thai Basil is the thing that detracts. Kind of dries it out. Interesting experiment, and kind of a mixed bag overall.

beton (604) - Tarnobrzeg, POLAND - MAR 20, 2017
Wzorcowy tripel. W aromacie świeże zioła, w tym właśnie bazylia z miętą, duża ilość słodu i kilka akcentów kwiatowych i fenolowych. W smaku bogatsze doznania. Dosyć słodkie, ciut ulepkowate, dużo kandyzowanych owoców - figi i daktyle, ciut szczypiące w usta, przyprawowe. Goryczka na średnim poziomie z akcentem kwiatowym.
