“Exotic Triple brewed with Belgium Yeast with Orange and Cinnamon flavours’s”
Each batch is brewed with fresh ‘tripel’ yeast borrowed from a secret location in Flanders. The beer has a complex flavour combining resinous bite from the American hops, spicy esters from the belgium yeast and fruit and cinnomon twists from the belgium fruits and spices. All finished with supreme British malt and candy sugar…
Belgium Yeast, Orange Peel and Cinnamon – check their video piece
I am looking forward to this.
A familiar sour aroma as a Belgium beer might.
Wow, that really is a pleasing drink, hint of sour bitter, but a lovely body of warm candies, and a lovely flavour on the finish.
Lovely orange peel notes, nice mouthfeel, this has packed all the good things into such a small bottle.
What is really nice is there is no alcohol after burn or dryness in this, it just drinks nice.
The pdubyah-o-meter rates this as 8.5 a of its things from the thing. Which makes it “very good” and one that I am impressed with. However it does tail-off a bit as it sits and gets warmer and could do with slightly more body and oomph.
As it warms you also begin to notice the alcohol burn too, but despite that a rally nicely credited and enjoyable Abby Tripel beer. Good work .
The double dip review
I was asked about “The Clean” and so I’ve been having a listen, this is “Anything Could Happen”
The Clean are an influential indie rock band that formed in Dunedin, New Zealand in 1978, and have been described as the most influential band to come from the Flying Nun label, whose repertoire included many major proponents of the “Dunedin Sound“
A bit rough and raw, but of a style that holds no pretence, lyrics are a range of great to schoolyard poetry, sound though despite the production remains true to itself.
You’ll find these on Spotify and probably Pandora if you have a look and of course iTunes.
As an aside, and not at all related, I found this – The StarTrek Phaser remote control
Like other abbey ales, Tripels are strong, yeasty-malty beers. But they are also pale, and have a notable hop profile. Hop bitterness may be higher than a typical abbey ale, up to 35IBUs. But the finish is where the hops really shine, as tripels should finish fairly dry. Otherwise, maltiness is still essential to the style, and the assertive yeast note typical of all abbey ales will be more apparent in tripels, since they do not have the rich dark malts to distract the palate. Alcohol flavours feature more prominently in Tripels that in just about any other style.
