When I purchased the Moa Pale Ale I also picked up a bottle of Moa St Josephs and last night I decided to remove the wire bail and pull the cork. The beer behaved until I poured it into the chalice and then it erupted with a very pleasant tropic fruit nose, unfortunately the eruption went all over the countertop so I wasted some of this precious nectar. The label touts the alcohol content as 9.5% and they call it a super premium Belgian-style tripel. I must admit this beast was pretty darn tasty, but by the time it had warmed all the way to room temperature there were some apple notes I just did not find excellent. My suggestion would be to consume this below 55F to keep those aromas and flavors subdued and why limit yourself to just one bottle. This one is worth seeking out so getcha some!
Moa St Josephs is brewed in the traditional style of a classic Belgian Tripel. Strong spice and clove characters create complex flavours and aromas which are heightened by its extended bottle conditioning, with a combination of malt and candy sugars complimenting the high alcohol content produced by the Belgian ale yeast. Best served at 8°C in a goblet after gently rolling the bottle to distribute the sediment signature.
