That's right, it's been over year since RedRock's award winning Belgian style triple has been around and this years batch is said to be the best one yet. 1500 bottles will go on sale today at both RedRock locations - as well as the Bayou and most likely the Beerhive. These are available for take home. Two bottles - per person - per day.
Pours a light golden honey color with with a moderate fluffy white head that dissipated to a very thin froth. The nose is a little boozy with banana, cloves malt and ripe mango. The taste is very much the same starting with candied sugar and cloves that transitions into toasted malt and banana. The end is sweet and oaky. The alcohol is warming and welcomed, masked well by Rêve’s full body. It adds a whole new dimension to the beer. You really get a good sense of the oak in the finish. It’s barrel aged for one year. Don’t get me wrong it’s got a kick. It’s 10.2% abv is more than enough to warm your inner beer geek.
RedRock Rêve is more proof that that Utah beers are much more than just 4.0% anomalies. Earning the bronze medal at the ’06 Great American Beer Festival and the silver medal in ’07.
