Twisted Pine Brewing Company Noel Tripel

Boulder, Colo.’s Twisted Pine Brewing takes on the Trappist style and brewed its first Tripel — the Noel Tripel. Thanks to spicy German hops, Belgian yeast, and Pilsner malt, the beer's body is light and smooth and the flavor full of intricate layers of malt, fruity yeast, and hops. It’s a heavy drinker at 9 percent ABV, but it still finishes dry and easy. Bonus point: the Noel Tripel features Denver artist Rich Dotson’s painting, "The Longest Night," as part of the ongoing Artisan Ale Project that features local artists on labels of small-batch brews.
