A Note on This Beer
We know San Luis Obispo, California for two things: being prime surfin’ real estate and as home to the fruity Sour Ale masters at Libertine. And when the brewers aren't busy hanging-ten and catching frothy waves, they’re making splashy barrel-aged treats like today’s 8.2% ABV Turpel Tripel.
Meshing the smooth booziness of a Belgian Tripel with the tart and funky oakiness of a Wild Ale, Turpel Tripel is an innovative, doubled-down fruit ride that’s juicier than a wave-full of lemons!
This brew seizes the tangy pear notes of the Tripel and brings them to life with sour cultures captured from the Southern California coastal air at Libertine’s San Luis Obispo brewery. Next, Libertine tucks this beer away in wine barrels for 8 months, allowing green apple and cherry notes to develop bit by bit. Finally, they bottle it at its peak -- you’ll taste a delicate balance of tart Meyer lemons, sweet nectarous peaches and crisp oaky apples.
With booze that crests sky-high and fruity Belgian notes deeper than a 6-foot wave, Turpel Tripel stands out in Libertine’s lineup of 100% spontaneous Wild and Sour Ales. This beer shows that aggressive booze amps up the Sour Ale flavors with a buzzing, tangy stone fruit notes that surf across your tongue. #getwild #hangloose #drinkcraft
