Tasting Notes (1)

Tasted on 9/24/2018 by CheeseNips

Notes:

Pours 3 fingers of rocky foam with medium orange color. Aroma is Belgian yeast phenolic, more towards fruit and bubblegum. Flavor is exaggerated aroma along with some bread dough. There is a slight flavor of corn at the very end that is a bit troubling after the initial taste, but then it's not present after. The bjcp guidelines make me think this is a Trappist single, so I will enter it as that into a local competition instead of a Tripel as I thought it might be, mostly because of the lack of alcohol notes. I'll give this a 4 star rating as I really like it but the slight corn note brought it down.

    Scored a 33/50 at the Oregon Brew Crew Fall Classic. Feedback was well made beer but 'turn the power down' from one judge and increase fruit and phenols from another.
