Bush Ambree (Amber) Triple

Type: amber ale, belgian tripel
Origin: Pipaix, Belgium
Price: €3.95 for 750 mL

The Bush Amber Tripel is a special edition beer brewed for the 75th anniversary of the creation of Bush Amber. I didn't have the basic Bush Amber, but from having this, I can assure you it is probably very good. This is a very unique belgian tripel, and the best way to describe it is a traditional belgian tripel mixed with toffee, probably coming from the bottle re-fermentation and proprietary yeasts. The sweetness is very subdued, and there is a hint of bitterness. I would definitely like to try the normal amber since they are both 12% and this one is an homage to the amber.
