Dogfish Head Beer To Drink Music To
Dogfish Head Beer To Drink Music To is a Belgian-style Tripel brewed with sweet orange peel, green cardamom, peppercorns and vanilla, 9% ABV.
This beer pours with a dark caramel color and a solid white head that fades after several minutes and settles to a slim layer. I am absolutely smelling the orange peel and cardamom on the nose, the vanilla is also mixing with some classic sweet banana. I’m impressed that even with all of the extra ingredients this is still tasting like a Belgian-style Tripel. There are classic flavors of a fantastic sweetness with notes of banana and bubble gum right out of the gate. I feel like the cardamom is coming out with a subtle spice, and the peppercorn finally comes into play in the finish and aftertaste with a distinct black pepper bite.
This is not really my favorite style in general, and all of those extra flavors had me a bit worried about this one, but I have to say it really comes together very well.
