Sun King Touched by an Angel Belgian-style Tripel

#41 Top beers 2021
Return to List

Dark bronze in color, with a full body and medium carbonation, there is no mistaking that this tripel has been aged in spirit barrels. The brewery says it was bourbon barrels, but there is a coconut and tropical essence to this beer that evokes thoughts of rum. In any case, a turn in the wood takes this otherwise well-executed tripel and turns it up a notch into a cocktail in your beer glass. As it warms, it brings out wood tannins in a soft, faintly fudgy way. John Holl
