Share This Review

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.

Appearance

The Tripel pours a cloudy burnt orange with a thin head of white froth that fizzles away almost immediately.

Aroma

Yeasty aroma consists of nut and bread, very much like a peanut butter sandwich.

Flavor

Palate utilizes flavors of orange, clove, candied sugar, and wheat. For a nine-percenter, the alcohol is well hidden.

Mouthfeel

Its feel has a medium body but falls flat with too little carbonation.

Overall

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.

About the Tripel

The Belgian Tripel originated at the Trappist monastery Westmalle. Its color ranges from deep gold to copper with good clarity and effervescence. Its feel should be around medium with high carbonation and high attenuation for a seemingly dry finish. Though high in alcohol, the booze should be masked well. Its palate and aroma are spicy, fruity, with a well-rounded malt character and moderate bitterness. Comparatively, the Tripel is darker and fuller than the Belgian Strong Pale Ale with more pronounced phenols than esters. And it’s not as strong or full as the Belgian Strong Dark Ale or Quadrupel.
