The Brew Works Belgian Tripel
While at The Brew Works in Bethlehem, I ordered a glass of the Belgian Tripel. I had ordered Belgian crab cakes, so I felt this was the perfect compliment. The beer pours a yellow-gold color with a thin filmy white head. The aroma consists of banana and green apple with some candisugar rounding out the nose. The taste is bubbly with a pepper bite, light banana, and a big green apple flavor. On the finish lies a good amount of candisugar. The alcohol content is 8.8% ABV. Wow, what a great tripel Brew Works has created. I have not had very many that were so prevalent on the green apple, but it was a welcomed addition and one I would order again.
