Tripel 7 is a Belgian-style Tripel brewed by Scuttlebutt Brewing Co., and for the purposes of this craft beer review, the ale was served in a snifter from a bottle.
The Tripel pours a cloudy burnt orange with a thin head of white froth that fizzles away almost immediately.
Yeasty aroma consists of nut and bread, very much like a peanut butter sandwich.
Palate utilizes flavors of orange, clove, candied sugar, and wheat. For a nine-percenter, the alcohol is well hidden.
Its feel has a medium body but falls flat with too little carbonation.
The masked booze was one of the only pluses of the Tripel 7. Very little else about this brew is reminiscent of a Tripel. Some might appreciate this as a different take. But for the rest, this will be an utter disappointment.
