Transmitter T4 Orange Citrus Candy Triple Ale

Posted: March 27, 2016 in Reviews, Transmitter Brewing, Tripel

One of the fun things about posting in advance is that I don’t get nearly as stressed when I have a backlog. Since I have so many posts in queue, I can just get to them when I have time, which in turn, I think makes for better posts. This beer is from a brewery that is putting out ridiculous stuff and I recommend trying anything you see from them.

ABV: 9.1%

Style: Tripel

Trivia: According to wikipedia.com, “In electronics and telecommunications a transmitter or radio transmitter is an electronic device which, with the aid of an antenna, produces radio waves. The transmitter itself generates a radio frequency alternating current, which is applied to the antenna. When excited by this alternating current, the antenna radiates radio waves. In addition to their use in broadcasting, transmitters are necessary component parts of many electronic devices that communicate by radio, such as cell phones, wireless computer networks, Bluetooth enabled devices, garage door openers, two-way radios in aircraft, ships, spacecraft, radar sets and navigational beacons. The term transmitter is usually limited to equipment that generates radio waves for communication purposes; or radiolocation, such as radar and navigational transmitters. Generators of radio waves for heating or industrial purposes, such as microwave ovens or diathermy equipment, are not usually called transmitters even though they often have similar circuits.”

Random: “The Beerists” did a podcast on tripels that was really informative and had some great comparisons. I would highly recommend checking it out.

This beer poured with a one finger, white head that dissipated slowly and left some lacing on the glass. The body was a hazy dark orange with lots of carbonation visible. The nose, not surprisingly, had a lot of fruit. Peach and apricot came through first, then a tropical touch by way of mango. Bread was at the end of the sniff with light coriander. The taste was incredibly bright with lots of juicy peach and apricot. Some green apple came through with clementine. There was some coriander and clove that came through too, but this was primarily a fruit forward beer. At the end of the sip, there was some bread from the yeast. It had a medium thick body with moderate carbonation. The booze was hidden and made this a very dangerous beer. It ended with a long finish with stone fruit and spice. This was $18.99 for the bomber, which came to $.86 per ounce, which is definitely on the pricey side, but it’s worth every cent. Go get this one. It’s worth searching out.
