Seattle, WA - Word has gotten out that owner Alejandro Brown has decided that as of 2010, their Belgian-style Tripel, is the new Spring Seasonal. Featured last year around this time of the year, we asked Big Al himself for more information for those already salivating. Here is what he had to say about the beer.
The Big Al Brewing 2010 Tour of Belgium is a series of limited releases inspired by the beers of Belgium. Our third selection is based on a beer originated by the Trappist Monastary at Westmalle developed in the early 1930’s to compete with the new pale lager beers from Eastern Europe. Big Al Brewing Tripel is a pale golden Belgian-style Strong Ale featuring the warm spicy fl avors of Belgian yeast complimented by a crisp, light peppery-rye fi nish.
Malt = Belgian Pilsner & Aromatic, Flaked Oats,
Rye & Wheat, Cane Sugar
Hops = Columbus, Magnum
Yeast = Belgian Abbey yeast
