Neshaminy Creek Tribute Tripel

Posted: March 29, 2015 in Neshaminy Creek Brewing Company, Reviews, Tripel

A few years back, I added 500 discs to my Netflix queue to watch. I’m finally on my second to last disc. This is another disc of “Gangland,” which the other half is not a fan of, so I’m watching it before she gets up. My last disc is “Monsters University” and then we’re onto discs the other half picked. Anyways, this is a beer that I picked up a six-pack of when we moved in. Let’s see how it was.

ABV: 9.3%

Style: Tripel

Trivia: According to the brewery website, “‘This is the greatest and best song (beer) in the world… Tribute.’ Not only are we huge Tenacious D fans, but we’re also huge Belgian Tripel fans, so this is our ‘Tribute’. Brewed with a whole lot of Pilsen malt, Hallertau and Saaz hops, as well a pinch of coriander and bitter orange peel, Tribute has a soft malt backbone that’s paired with a fruity, citrusy flavor, and spicy, yet not over done phenolic character imparted from our use of a genuine Belgian yeast strain. At 9.3% ABV the alcohol is well hidden and very deceptive, and the dry finish will leave you eager for more.”

Random: I loved the movie “Monsters Inc.” I’m a sucker for a good Disney movie.

This beer poured with a half a finger of white head that dissipated slowly and left a lot of lacing on the glass. The body was a cloudy, warm orange color with lots of carbonation visible. It had a bright nose with lots of citrus, yeast and golden raisins. So far, so good. The taste was just as bright. It had notes of orange and then light coriander came through. Yeast and golden raisins with peach finished the sip. The alcohol was intense and warming. The body was medium thickness with light carbonation. It had a long finish with citrus and heat. This was $1.67 a can, which broke down to $.14 per ounce, which was a great deal. I enjoyed this beer, although it’s not even close to the best of the style that I’ve ever had.
