Beer Tasting: Anderson Valley Brother David's Triple

The Beer: Anderson Valley Brother David's Abbey Style Triple
Style: Belgian-Style Abbey Tripel
Reviews: Beer Advocate Rate Beer
Packaging & Date Stamping: 22 oz. brown bottle; no evident date stamp on bottle

From where & how stored: Purchased from Monument Liquors in Concord, CA flown home and stored at 60F since then

Pricing: $4.99 per bottle

Availability: Year-round

ABV, IBU, and Other Available Stats: 10.0% ABV
Bryan's Notes
The Look:
- pretty well filtered
- orangish-bronze color
- thin head

The Aroma:
- orange, clove, alcohol

The Taste:
- alcohol warming in the end is what you're left with

The Verdict: A little aging could help this beer round itself out a bit more. Their Brother David's Double is better at this age.
