A new twist on the classic Belgian tripel. This golden-hued beer is made with barley, wheat and oats. Crystal hops create a spicy and subtle citrusy hoppiness. Half of the batch is aged for five months in three types of barrels – Jack Daniels, rye whiskey, and brandy. The other half is given a heavy dose of Italian plums, and a quick dry hop of Amarillo hops. The resulting nectar has tartness from the plums, with a plum/grapefruit-like nose, and finishes with hints of honey and oak, and a faintness of whiskey.
Belgians are complex and obviously have a long rich history which make them so much fun to drink. They have so many aromas and taste profiles it's difficult to list them all but they include spicy, clove, herbal, fruity. The more tart beers bring more farmyard aromas. They are typically higher in alcohol and come in many styles: Dark Ale, Blonde, Pale Ale, Dubbel, Flanders, Lambic, Quadrupel (Quad), Saison/Farmhouse Ale, Tripel, Witbier.
