Scuttlebutt Tripel 7 Belgian Style Ale

Posted: January 13, 2017 in Reviews, Scuttlebutt Brewing Company, Tripel

I’ve been basically living out of hotels for the past couple of weeks and I will say that people in Ohio are much nicer than people out here. When I first got out there, I thought it was weird that random people would talk to me, but I got used to it after awhile. Let’s get to tonight’s beer.

ABV: 9%

Style: Tripel

Trivia: According to the brewery website, “Very smooth & delicate, finishes dry with a hint of tartness.”

Random: This beer uses Bullion and CZ Saaz hops.

The beer poured with a thick, one finger, slightly off white head. It took a long time to dissipate and left some lacing on the glass. The body was a bright orange color and very cloudy with little visible carbonation. The nose had some golden fruit and then a strong booze note. What was odd was there was an off-putting plastic note. Peach came through too. The taste started with some peach and peach skin, then went into golden raisins. The next thing that came through was a weird tin note with a lot of booze, almost like they threw a shot of vodka in there. Orange flesh was there, but there wasn’t any spice or yeast. The body was way too thin with light carbonation. It had a quick finish with booze and oranges. I don’t remember how much I paid for the beer, but I wouldn’t drink this for free. It was completely unbalanced and had some weird flavors that didn’t fit the style.
