Tripel Overhead

tripel_overhead

Tripel Overhead is a Belgian Tripel style beer, brewed by Mother Earth Brewing here in North Carolina and aged in oak bourbon barrels.  The base profile is what I’d expect from a Belgian Tripel, strong sweet nose, big heavy body, and a sweet complex flavor, but the fact that this is aged in oak bourbon barrel is very evident and it gives this beer unique overtones of wood and whiskey    They alcohol is very pronounced, but balanced by the strong and complex flavors, just like a good whiskey.   A very good beer.

I give it a 4.6 out of 5.
