Block 15 Brewing releases Illuminated Belgian-style Tripel in Bottles

Corvallis, Oregon’s Block 15 Brewing has announced Illuminated Belgian-style Tripel as the latest release in their Abbey Series. Illuminated is the spring seasonal in the classical Belgian-inspired series and will be released in bottles and on tap from March through May and distributed in Oregon and parts of Washington.

Illuminated Begian-style Tripel is bottle conditioned in the Belgian tradition and the brewery says it’s great fresh but also can be cellared.

About Illuminated
Brewed with an array of imported Belgian grains, Illuminated is a complex sipper, balancing refined malt notes with a classic Belgian yeast profile. In traditional Belgian fashion, our tripel leads out with rich, sweet flavors, but finishes surprisingly crisp and effervescent on the palate.

Grains: Pilsen, 2-row, Aromatic, Carafoam
Hops: Magnum, UK Golding, Hallertauer Mittelfrüh
Yeast: Trappist High Gravity
ABV: 9%
FG: 1.007

Illuminated is available in 500mL bottles, featuring artwork from artist Patricia Smith.
