Townsite Charleston Belgian Triple

Townsite_Charleston1Brewer: Townsite Brewing, Powell River, BC
Style: Belgian Triple
Alc/Vol: 9%
IBUs: 34

Description: A reboot of the breweries original Charleston, one of several beers in the Hulk series, this beer is another bottle-conditioned Belgian Triple that honors Cédric the brewmaster’s Belgian heritage. Due to popular demand, the beer has been brought back, with some minor alterations – including increased alcohol content and a slightly different flavor.

Tasting Notes: In addition to being a faithful example of a Belgian Triple, with plenty of malt flavor and yeasty notes, this beer has a smooth profile and some nice honey overtones. While it what was not as pleasing to me as their YOGN 82, it is still a delight and I am glad I got a chance to sample it. The original Charleston escaped me; and with the exception of the Timewarp and the new Cardena, it was the only beer in their lineup I had yet to try.

Appearance: Deep orange, slightly cloudy, good foam retention and carbonation
Nose: Belgian pale malt, yeast, honey, alcohol
Taste: Smooth malt flavor, good tang, yeast, sugars, honey sweetness
Aftertaste: Lingering malt bitterness, alcohol, mild hops and yeasts
Overall: 9/10
