River Horse Tripel Horse
I picked up a six-pack of River Horse Tripel Horse the last time I was in New Jersey. I have enjoyed every River Horse beer I have had to date, and was really excited to try the tripel. The beer pours a golden color with a foamy cream colored head. The aroma is full of banana with hints of pepper and candisugar. The taste is full of banana and heavy on the alcohol flavor and has an undertone of candisugar and rock candy. The pepper does not hit until the finish, but is a very pleasant accent. The alcohol content is 10.0% ABV. This was a very rounded tripel. It may have a decent alcohol bite, but the banana and pepper flavors are very enticing in the mouth.
