About Tripel Threat

According to Michael Jackson (the British one, aka The Beer Hunter), CBC was the first American brewery to create and produce a Belgian-style ale. Our tripel went on to win our first ever Gold Medal at the Great American Beer Festival, in 1991, before there was even a category for Belgian Ales. Tripel Threat is fermented with our proprietary Belgian yeast strain and brewed using imported Continental malt, hopped with Spalt and Goldings, and very lightly spiced with freshly toasted and ground coriander. It is light golden in color, full-bodied, fruity, and very strong. Aromas of barley malt, orange blossoms and a hint of coriander first greet the nose, then carry through to the palate. A warming sensation then takes over, and blends into a complex finish of bread dough, spices, citrus, estery alcohol, and hops.
