Scuttlebutt Tripel 7

Scuttlebutt Tripel 7
Abbey Style Tripel

Ratebeer 3.11 47th percentile
Beer Advocate B-

Taste +4

You know what? After a while beer styles really start to taste the same. This makes me very happy, because this is a great beer in a great style. The nose is bready with light berry fruits; although it is a bit watery. A little bubbly hits the tongue and spreads the toffee, apricots and light peach all over the place. This is enhanced with a hearty dose of alcohol tingle.

Aftertaste +1

You would expect a medium weight taste like this to last for a while; oddly the finish is dry and lasts about 20 seconds. It is quite tart, like an apricot cider.

Alcohol Content +1 9%

Just the way it should be

Value +1

This was a good Belgian triple. I would get it again; it can be had for a domestic price.

Ingame Enhancement +1

Any night Meterman comes over and drinks beer is a good night. Yes, I did this to bump the score up.

Overall 8/10

A solid, domestic Abbey Style Triple. Sure to please the converted and will not offend the purist.
