4. Trinity Tripel
Community Beer Company

Belgian-style tripel
9 percent ABV • In 750-milliliter bottles


The Trinity Tripel is an international drink: Belgian yeast, hops from Germany and New Zealand, brewed in the Design District. Fruity and spicy, this beer technically falls into the Belgian-style pale strong ale category, which roughly translates into “Be careful, because it’s easy to drink a lot of this, but you probably shouldn’t because it’s 9 percent ABV.” (But you should drink a lot of this.)

Aroma: “Slight honey, apple … Clear, fresh, fruity, and piney hop character … Hops, grapefruit.”

Appearance: “Very slight haze … Clear, golden.”

Flavor: “Light, sweet citrus, sweet honey, ends with an oddly cloying tinge … There’s some hop; nice malt as well … Fruity.”

Mouthfeel: “Super-bright carbonation. Very summery and crisp … Both creamy and lively … Great carbonation = good clean finish.”

Overall impression:
“Great, refreshing and bright beer, on the sweeter side. Only fault is the finish … Nice for the style; really carbonated. Great hop balance … Really nice citrus/slight hop. This one I like … Great, drinkable, easy finish. Good introductory beer.”

What We Said: “Okay—lots of bitterness, good fruit.”
