Beer Wars: Tripel Threat!

Posted by John Eckhart Posted on Jun - 17 - 2013

spy-vs-spyDear Enotecans,

Rad 80’s Party: This Friday is the Rad 80’s party, it’s going to be totally tubular dude!  Check it out man!

One of the funnest things to do with specialty beverages is a blind tasting.  Let’s look at just the beer. Forget price and brand. Let your taste buds do the voting!

We’re starting a Versus battle of Craft Beer.  The first Beer War will be a Tripel Threat.  Two different Belgian Tripels will be on tap, but we’re not revealing which is which.  You will try them both and vote for your favorite.  At the end of the night we’ll tally the votes and announce the winner, and reveal which one was which.  We’ll make the announcement on our Facebook page.

Keep an eye out for future Beer Wars, what style should we compete next?

  • What: Beer Wars Tripel Threat – Blind Belgian Tripel Throw Down
  • Who: You, if you like beer and are over 21 years old
  • When: Wednesday, June 19th 4pm-close
  • Where: Enoteca in Post Falls
  • Why?: Because beer is gooood
  • How: Drop in event, just show up and order samples or pints to taste and vote.  Place your order for both at once so the bar tender can serve them blindly.

Beer Wars: Versus Battle

Fish Tale Monkfish Belgian Style Tripel Ale
(Olympia, Washington)

A cracking fine example of the classic style, Monkfish Belgian Style Tripel Ale is the color of nectar, with a sweet malty flavor and subtle hop aroma. Mingling in its character, fruity and spicy esters impart a heavenly complexity to this medium-bodied delight.

Brewed using Pale malt, Honey malt, aromatic malt, Belgian candy sugar, Styrian Golding hops and, of course, Belgian Abbey yeast, Monkfish stands firmly in the Belgian triple tradition. And remember: Whereas triple ale is the soul of the Belgian favorite, Carbonnade a la Flamande, this classic stew is made all the better by two bottles of Monkfish—one for the pot, the other for your glass.

Anderson Valley Brother David’s Triple Abbey Style Ale(Boontville, California)

Trippel. Similar to Belgian-style Strong Pales, this beer is often characterized by its lighter color, spicy aromatics, and complexity. Brother David’s Triple is brewed with copious amounts of pale malts as well as Belgian candi sugar, giving it a deep golden hue, medium body and rich mouth feel. The dense head gives off aromas of candied orange peel, clover honey, pears, and a hint of freshly mown fields. The fruity esters and spicy hop flavors balance the phenolic characteristics leading to a peppery, citrusy finish.
