Four Winds Triplicity Belgian Tripel

Fourwinds_tripelBrewer: Founds Winds Brewing, Delta, BC
Style: Tripel
ABV: 9%
IBUs: 33.3

Description: As part of their Eurus series, the Triplicity is brewed in the tradition of Belgian-style Tripels, but with some added twists. In addition to employing three varieties of malt, three varieties of hop, and three sugar sources, this brew is also fermented with Lillooet wild sage honey. It even weighs in at an exact 33.3 IBUs!

Tasting Notes: Just about everything Four Winds produces has come with a major endorsement. And I was very happy to see that they produce a Tripel, one of my absolute favorite styles! And this brew is not only delightfully esoteric (all things in threes) it is also in keeping with the best of this brewing tradition. Strong malt flavor, a spicy and effervescent yeast backbone, a slight honey and sugary sweetness, and some mild hops make it an all around pleaser!

Appearance: Golden/orange, cloudy, very good foam retention and carbonation
Nose: Rich malt, yeast, spices, honey, herbs, floral hops
Taste: Crisp malt, hint of sweetness, spicy, effervescent yeast, notes of honey
Aftertaste: Lingering malt sweetness, yeast, spices
Overall: 9.5/10
