River Horse Tripel Horse

Notice a unique aromatic nose with a hint of vanilla esters, which comes from the Belgian ale yeast. Tripel Horse has a big body and rich mouth feel and finishes mostly dry with only a touch of sweetness. If you shy from some of the sweeter Belgian ales, we think you will enjoy this one. The palate improves with age, so keep some on hand and you can ride Tripel Horse down a new path with each opened bottle.

From the Brewer – “Our take on a Belgian Style Tripel Ale, fermented with a Trappist yeast strain which lends hints of vanilla and creates a variety of complex flavors.”
