| July 12, 2009 | Comments (1)

Green Flash TripelFrom TFP: A good friend handed me an inherited beer stash. One of the beers was Green Flash 3rd Anniversary Belgian-Style Tripel.  As we all know, this is now a year ’round release from Green Flash.  By my estimation, this beer is 4 years old.

Green Flash Brewing Co. – 3rd Anniversary Belgian-Style Tripel, now known as Green Flash Tripel. Poured into a goblet 9.7% abv. From The Legend ‘Scotty Don’t’.

Four years later….

Appearance: Pours a deep dark orange with a head that subsides to a thick stripe.

Aroma: Figs, apricot, ginger, lemon.

Taste: Apricot, pear, white grapes, spicy, earthy herbal hops, peach, mango, clove, and other spices.

Mouthfeel: Thick and sticky.

Overall: This beer held up for four years perfectly.  Now I will try one fresh for comparission.
