Our Traditional Tripel aged with oak chips that were conditioned with rye whiskey. If you’re not familiar with it, rye whiskey is a subtle flavor. Distinct from bourbon or whiskey in that the rye tang makes it through the distillation process. It is not as sweet as a bourbon or whiskey can be.
To make this beer we age oak chips with the rye whiskey until it achieves the aromas we’re looking for. The beer then is aged with these chips for an additional period of time to absorb their flavor and aroma into the Tripel. The resulting beer is a balance of light malts, vanilla, oak, rye and cracked pepper. The finish is an almost light bodied, dry crispness that belies the overall ABV.
