BABY'S FIRST TRIPEL
Join us on Monday for the release of Lost Forty's FIRST Belgian Tripel. This is the first time Dylan has brewed this style, so he kept it OG. Inspired by Trappist breweries like Westmalle and La Trappe, ours is reminiscent of traditional Tripels.
XXX MARKS THE SPOT
The term Tripel comes from Belgium but the origin of the term is unknown. The most well-known theory is that the word indicates strength—either by reference to a series of marks, such as crosses on a cask (X for the weakest strength, XX for medium strength, and XXX for the strongest beer) or by reference to the original gravity of a beer, which roughly corresponds to 3% ABV, 6% ABV and 9% ABV.
WITH SUGAR ON TOP
The lighter body comes from the use of Belgian candi sugar, which not only lightens the body, but also adds complex alcoholic aromas and flavors.
GET TO THE GOOD STUFF ALREADY
Our Belgian Tripel has a glowing orange-gold color, juicy fruit aroma, and complex flavors that meld rich malt sweetness, warmth, hops, and powerful drinkability. Lively in carbonation with a strong fruit-forward flavor, it finishes with candy sweetness and spicy white pepper. It's deceptively easy to drink at 10.5% ABV. Proceed with caution.
Available on draft and in 4 packs in the taproom.
