Petrus Gouden Tripel Ale

Type: belgian tripel ale
Origin: Bavikhove, Belgium
Price: $7.99 per 750 mL

This is another one of those bottle gimmick beers. They put some ridiculous image on the front, give it some quirky name, misspell some words, and expect you to buy. It’s a fairly good strategy, and worked pretty well on me. This beer has everything you expect in a belgian tripel. It has a soft golden (Gouden?) color with a frothy head. It has a very strong wheat and sour citrus smell. The flavors are very sour, much more so than other tripels. It has a very significant mouth feel and is all around enjoyable, especially for the price.
