Red Rock Rêve
This seasonal ale is a Belgian style trippel, barrel-aged in medium toast French oak for the duration of a year. It is inoculated with Brettanomyces and bottle conditioned. Rêve is comprised of a combination of Pilsner malts and Pale malt. Belgian candy sugar is a key component giving the Trippel a sweet yet dry finish. This unfiltered brew is golden in color and 10.3% alcohol by volume.

Excellent! This bubbly golden wine glass of heaven has a white head an inch tall
A nose of Brett, fruity yeast, English pale malts, and wood.
Flavor is amazingly complex. Sour hit up front instead of on the back end, which is unique. Plenty of fruity flavors, but no sweetness really, despite the ingredient list. The candy sugar really only adds depth of flavor, not much sweetness.
Feel is lovely. Very brightly carbonated and spot on medium body.
I was surprised and impressed that such a brew was made in Utah. I enjoyed this one at Log Haven restaurant up Mill Creek canyon road outside of Salt Lake. it paired magically with a rare elk steak, smoked blue mashed potatoes, and sautéed hen of the woods mushrooms. An amazing beer with an amazing feel. I’d suggest this highly to anyone, unique and delicious, if a bit pricey at 20 bucks per bottle.
