Four Winds Brewing Co. – Triplicity Belgian Tripel Review
Four winds has released another beer in their Eurus series called the Triplicity and it is an unfiltered, bottle conditioned Belgian Tripel. Thie beer is corked with a champagne style top and pours from the large 750ml bottle a lightly clouded, golden colour topped with three fingers of head which leaves a light lacing on the glass’ sides. Through this head comes a wheaty, big malt beer with yeasty notes and a honey sweetness. Despite being 9% ABV the aroma does not forecast an overly boozy beer. The flavour starts off with a big malted body along side a Belgian-wheat flavour and a mild honey-like sweetness. Light clove notes come into play but remain rather subdued. As the flavour approaches the finish a mild hop comes into play with fruit tones and ends rather dry. This beer hides its alcohol very well. At 9% it packs a punch but remains very drinkable and light. Four Winds has done it again creating a big, but broadly enjoyable bottle conditioned beer!
