To celebrate our eighth anniversary, Barrel of Monks has created a Belgian-style Tripel with a completely different recipe and flavor profile than our very popular Three Fates tripel. Called 888 ("Tripel Eight") to signify our eighth birthday, this beer is made with European malts and hopped with New World hops, then fermented with a unique, newly developed Belgian yeast strain which was modified to accentuate fruity esters. This beer is deep blonde in color, with aromas of citrusy hops and malt, pours with a creamy head, and is dry with the fruity esters creating a tasty treat you will really enjoy. At 9% it is a big beer but surprisingly drinkable. This beer should age well.
