Game Day Beer Review: River Horse Brewing Tripel Horse Tripel Ale
(10.00% ABV) Poured into a red plastic solo cup as the scent of Christmas cookies baking in a nearby oven wafted throughout the room.
Tripel Horse smelled of rum, raisins and yeast, with a definite sweetness filling the air.
The beer was well carbonated and boozy, with both a spicy and sweet taste evident -- likely from the combination of malt and various spices, including coriander and clove. There was also a ton of citrus flavor in the beer. All in all, a nice break from the ordinary, and definitely drinkable for such a high ABV. B
