CORVALLIS, Ore. — This week, Block 15 Brewing Company released Illuminated, the spring entry in their seasonal Abbey Series. This Belgian-style Tripel Ale will be available bottled and on tap from March through May—with distribution to bottle shops, beer bars and specialty markets around Oregon and parts of Washington. Bottle conditioned in the Belgian tradition, Illuminated is designed to be enjoyed both freshly bottled and cellared.
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 percent
- FG: 1.007
Illuminated is available in 500mL bottles, featuring artwork from artist Patricia Smith.
