BELL’S SPARKLEBERRY BELGIAN-STYLED ALE

On tap at Ambulance, sparkling raspberry ale with enough lactic Belgian Framboise thrust, sour cherry tartness and sulfuric green grape esters to denounce its teasing tripel tag. Subtle champagne spritz, delicate Chardonnay buttering and dry rosé wining detail its multi-berry midst. An elegant sweetly soured Framboise with ample raspberry-pureed fruit juicing securing savory affluence.

(STEENBERGE) DE GARRE TRIPEL

On tap at Seven Lakes Station, superb Belgian candi-sugared strong ale (well hidden 10% ABV) retains vanilla-creamed fruitfulness and funky herbal bittering. Honeyed peach, fig and raisin luster gains banana daquiri sweetness along with dried cherry, red grape, orange marmalade, honeydew and white-peppered Chardonnay illusions. A fruitily caramelized tripel with chewy viscosity that’s perfect as a rich dessert treat.

DOMINION CANDI BELGIAN TRIPEL

Understatedly tranquil for its style, despite blistering 10% ABV. Demure candi-sugared fruiting, mildly creamed vanilla-banana-clove influence, sedate Chardonnay buttering and sweet caramel malting contrast musty cellared fungi dirge. Just below the fragile surface lies cling peach, sugarplum, lemon meringue, red cherry, fig, apricot and peach tones as well as latent curacao and mandarin orange tanginess.

VOODOO GRAN MET TRIPEL

‘Delicate’ soft-tongued tripel (with astoundingly quiet 9.5% ABV)needs richer malt profile and more up-front resonation as tart beet-sugared crystal malting never sweetens enough. Dryer than most stylistic competitors with daintily candied Belgian yeast influence and blanched pilsner malts needing a push forward.Mildly perfumed banana tartness pick up desolately spiced pineapple, mango and orange tropicalia.
