Launching this Friday: 14|03 Tripel – Ella
11 May 2016

tripel

 

After patiently maturing for several months, our newest Tripel, hopped with Ella, is now ready for release.

Belgian Tripel is easily one of our favourite styles here at BBNo, one that we’re excited to release each year with a new hop bill, and taste it as it evolves. Our first Tripel used American hop Mosaic, bringing slick, buoyant passion fruit and blueberry notes. The second expression used New Zealand Wai-Iti and lemon zest to weave in soft citric sweetness that has aged gracefully into mellow, caramelised lemon flavours.

For our third Tripel, we’re returning to using hops from the southern hemisphere, this time using Australian hop Ella, noted for its pronounced floral and juicy fruit character. The indulgently fruity nose evokes peach and apple blossom, pineapple cocktails and tropical fruit sundaes, whilst that crucially smooth and slick Tripel body all but glides across the palate, with just a prickle of gentle spicing from coriander and orange peel to balance the beer’s yeast character. That rounded, finely-balanced body is what defines Tripel’s bewildering drinkability and provides such an exciting canvas upon which to experiment.

Those of you who have tried the original 14|01 Tripel – Mosaic might remember we aged some of it in white wine barrels to become 12|05. If you want to find out what happened to some of the latest Tripel, well, you’ll just have to wait and see. For now, the new 14|03 Tripel – Ella will be pouring at our taproom on Friday 13th and Saturday 14th May (with 330ml & 750ml bottles available to take away) and on sale in trade from Monday 16th May.

Cheers!
