Karl Strauss Four Scowling Owls Tripel
Four Scowling Owls is a 9% ABV robust Belgian-style Tripel with a citrus zest character and peppery, dry finish. The deep golden beer is brewed with a blend of pale and Vienna malts for a slightly bready base, while Mt. Rainier hops create a mild floral bitterness. The brewers add Belgian candy sugar to the kettle to increase the gravity of the beer while maintaining a lighter body and refreshing mouthfeel. The Tripel is then warm fermented with traditional Westmalle yeast, creating complex layers of citrus, bubble gum, and spice. This beer is spritzy, dry and pairs well with rich and hearty holiday fare. “2013 has been an incredible year—from opening our new tasting room to expanding our beer into the Inland Empire—we are stoked to end on a high note with this delicious holiday Tripel,” says Segura.
