Trisser

Blond triple of 7,5 % ABV

This beer was the first experimental recipe we brewed in large quantity at a commercial brewery.

Trisser bier

The Name

"Trisser" is a student who is trying to do the same exams for the third time. This is his final change to get a degree. There is no fourth time possible. One of the brewers has been in this situation once, we are not going to tell who it was, because we want to protect the privacy of our chairman. Of course the number 3 is a nice association with the word triple.

The Story Behind The Beer

In 2004 this recipe had won a contest of HOP (Heerlijk Objectief Proeven), a local organisation of beerlovers, member of Zythos, the confederation of all local organisations related to tasting beer.
This beer was brewed at Brewery 'De Graal', One half was called 'Content' and was sold to celebrate the 10 years of HOP. The other half was called 'Trisser' and was given to family and friends.
We did not know what to expect of this big brew, and before we knew we were brewing more and more to satify the demand. And we are still brewing it today at the 'Proefbrouwerij' brewery.

Most triple beers are sold blond. This is only commercial driven. To prove this to the visitors of our brewing demonstrations we made this beer with the colour of an ale.
Has this beer original taste ? Does this beer create a new style ? No, it doesn't. And it does not have to be. We want to convince the lager drinking public there is a better and more tastfull alternative. We do not convince them if we take new, maybe too extreme tastes.
Currently, people do like it ... and keep asking for it. So we keep on brewing.

Label

This original label has been designed by Bart J. On the inside you can find all the ingredients and more information about the brewery. On the label is a small sticker with the date of the brew and the date of the bottling. Trisser bottles with roman numbers I until XIII had a classic label.

Big Brews

Every brew of this recipe is marked with a roman number because these brews are made periodically and the taste changes according the age and the fermentation on the bottle. With these numbers you can easily check which brew you have. The recipe always stays the same.
