Funky Tripel in BJCP Competition
« on: May 31, 2012, 11:55:11 AM »
One of my favorite wild beers to date is a Tripel inoculated with my culture.

Can I enter this beer into Cat. 23 or Cat. 16E and have a fighting chance?


It has the bready, estery beginnings of a tripel. There is a slight tartness, but nowhere near that of a BW or Flanders. The Brett shines through, providing a great, lingering, musty cherry pie flavor, and there is a TINY accent of vanilla from a bit of oak cubes.

I think that 16E would be appropriate, judging from your description.
CH3CH2OH - Without it, life itself would be impossible.
