LD’sBelgian Tripel Ale
In Belgium, strong golden ales are traditionally named after forces of evil. So,we thought it only fitting for this beer to share initials with the meanest little guy in the Catawba Family…the infamous LD, a.k.a. Long Dawg, a.k.a. Little Devil. Like LD himself, our abbey-style Tripel is innocently pale in color, deceptively light in body, and irresistibly “complex.” But don’t be fooled by appearances, lest you suffer the wrath of this tiny terror!
This Belgian-style ale uses roughly three times the malt of a standard “Single,” with an addition of Belgian candi sugar. Fermented with abbey ale yeast, LD’s is bursting with fruity yeast esters and spicy phenols – and a hint of warming alcohol. Flavor descriptors include apple, pear, lemon, banana, clove, peppery spice, and noble hop earthiness.
