Share This Review

Peter Rabbit is a Belgian Tripel collaboratively brewed by Barrel of Monks Brewing and Fort Lapin Brouwerij. For the purposes of this craft beer review, the ale was served in a snifter from a bottle.

Appearance

The Tripel pours a cloudy golden hue and is topped by an inch-thick cap of puffy white foam that shows fine retention. Streams of fine bubbles continuously rise and collect at the bottom of the head. Only a little of that trademark Belgian lace is left behind.

Aroma

The aroma is initially musty with yeast and grain. And then it softens to a spicy scent of clove and coriander that’s backed by a hint of fruitiness.

Flavor

The palate begins with a mild dose of floral hops that recedes to mellow baked bread. Hibiscus, coriander, and pepper lead a mildly hoppy finish that sweetens with honey orange and an added fruitiness of apple and pear.

Mouthfeel

Its feel has a medium body with a smooth draw that becomes lively from its high carbonation. Its finish is mostly dry with a modest warming sensation. The sweetness on the backend lightly coats the mouth.

Overall

Peter Rabbit is absolutely terrific. While the Tripel doesn’t exhibit the clarity usually expected, it still looks lovely in the glass. The aroma is soft but pleasant. Feels lighter than it really is and that dry effervescence is easily crushed. A relatively high ABV is hidden quite well. But it’s that complex and flavorful palate that will win you over. With the help of the folks across the pond, Barrel of Monks has crafted an outstanding Tripel.
