Day 264 Drink: Sierra Nevada Brandy Barrel-Aged Belgian Trippel
Belgian-style ale is not the first thing that comes to my mind when I think of Sierra Nevada Brewing. Perhaps it should.
Sierra Nevada Brandy Barrel-Aged Belgian Trippel is aged for five months in California brandy barrels. A Belgian yeast strain is used to introduce authentic fruity notes to the flavor.
Sierra Nevada Brandy Barrel-Aged Belgian Trippel is a cloudy golden colored and light-bodied ale. The malt gives the brew a slightly biscuity flavor and the beer has a bright floral, fruit and spice body. Refreshing and inviting.
