Westport Extra Blonde Tripel – ABV 9%
Spicy and herbal with background notes of caramel and toffee and some alcohol warmth and sweet booziness – a Belgian Tripel at its best.
Look: Dark hazy amber with foamy white head and good lacing.
Aroma: Driven by candy sweetness with undertones of spice and herbal hops.
Taste: Bold and full-bodied, with medium carbonation. On the taste it’s bitter and drier with a juicier sweeter finish and some minimal booziness warmth.
Verdict: Everything a Belgian Tripel should be the folks in Westport, Ireland.
