Red label. This tripel has been aged for 9 months in oak barrels that were previously used to mature red wine. During the maturation period in our climate controlled barrel room, the beer picks up new flavors from the barrels and their previous contents. The origin of the barrel and the grape varietal it contained both contribute their own nuances.

Defreni (3305) - Husum, DENMARK - JUN 27, 2012
Flaske: ravfarvet let diset øl med et fint skumhoved. Duften er til start meget præget af vin fadene, nærmest astringent. Smagen sidder lige i skabet. Let krydret trippel der er i den amerikanske stil med en tydelig prægning fra faddene. Dejlig øl.

oobawa (1804) - Tennessee, USA - MAR 4, 2012
Lovely bottle from Westbrook. The tripel is dry and spicy, with a grassy middle and a peppery finish, but the red wine character turns the finish into something unique, as the acidity of the grapes mingles with the herbal vanilla of the oak and the Tripel’s inherent sweetness. Very good now; I’m curious what age will do the the beer.
