Boulevard Long Strange Tripel

Boulevard Long Strange Tripel

This Tripel is brewed by Boulevard Brewery located in Kansas City Mo. This beer has a hefty 9% ABV, is available year round and is a part of their Smokestack Series.

This Belgian Tripel pours a hazy dark orange color with a thick head that laces the glass. I also found this beer to be very well carbonated as bubbles raced up the glass. The aroma is a sweet, yeasty fruit smell that I felt left me wanting more. The taste of this Tripel hit me in about the same way. It has a nice mouthfeel however the high ABV really shows through in this beer and dominates the taste, as well as warms the belly. I did get a small amount of Belgian yeast and fruit initially but the bitter hops, and the alcohol really overtake all of these flavors in the finish.

Overall I found this to be a good beer and would recommend you give it a shot id you have it available near you.

Cheers!

Cheers!
