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.
A pale orange color in the glass, it starts off with a thick white head that exhibits good retention. Attractive scents of fresh lemon supremes, sweet grass, clean wheat, yeast and basil all welcome you into the glass, promising a refreshing experience despite the higher alcohol. Cleansing carbonation and a great earthy spice character lift the medium-weight mouthfeel and keeps things light and brisk on the dry finish. Well balanced and extremely drinkable. #19 Wine Enthusiasts Top 25 Beers of 2011.
