A limited release beer, featuring the famous Triskel hop varietal from Alsace. Triskel is bred from the French Strissespalt and English Yeoman hops. Dupont’s master brewer, Oliver Dedeycker, describes it as “combining the aromatic notes, mainly floral, of Strisselspalt with the fruity character of Yeoman.” The unusual name, Triskel, was apparently inspired by triskelion, the symbol of the Gauls, those beer drinking ancestors of the French, which represents the three elements: Earth, Air and Water. 

Tasting Notes: Cloudy orange color, big head, lots of lace, dry, hoppy, citrus lower than usual in this example, hints of citrus & lemon but subdued, no spice used but peppery & spicy in aroma & flavor, hallertauer hops & pilsner malt, hops coming forward in finish. Pure Deliciousness.
