Anderson Valley "Brother Davids Triple"
Anderson Valley Brewing Company - Boonville, California USA
Abbey Tripel (ABV 10%) (IBU 33)

[Best served in a Trappist glass]

Rating: 3.6/5.0

Aroma: 8/10
Appearance: 2/5
Taste: 8/10
Palate: 4/5
Overall: 14/20

The pour was a clear reddish amber with a small (less than 1 finger) white fizzy head that dissipated in a matter of seconds down to a very small collar, which created some poor spotty lacing.

The aroma was of a light cereal malt and a sweet funky yeast with notes of candi-sugar, apple, dark fruit (plums and cherries) and a slight sour alcohol presence.

The taste was a tad malty sweet with a mild candied apple flavor early on, becoming mildly yeasty with a nice note of dark fruit, a slight sourness and a mild alcohol tinge at the end. The flavor hung on for a decent time proceeding the swallow with a sour fruity taste left to linger well after all other flavors were gone.

Mouthfeel was light in body with a dry watery texture and a lively carbonation.

Overall a very unique tasting brew, one that has a mix of a Belgian Tripel and a sour beer blended extremely well giving this brew a superb drinkability and flavor...
