Brewery – Boom Island Brewing Company, Minneapolis, MN
Beer – Brimstone
Style – Tripel
ABV – 9.5%
Color – Yellowish gold with a long-lasting eggshell white head
Aroma – Honey, lemongrass, peach, cotton candy, herbal spice
Flavor – Matches very well with the aroma along with a touch of bubble gum and black pepper, dry and warming alcohol presence
Verdict – I am very impressed with this tripel. I had tried Boom Island’s first 2 beers at a beer festival just after they opened a while ago and wasn’t sure about them. However, this beer is definitely a winner in my book. I believe that means I need to revisit those first two brews, as well as try their others for the first time. I really, really like this beer! Keep up the good work, Boom Island.
