Sapient Trip Ale
9.5% ABV, 34 IBU
This Belgian-style tripel is cloudy orange in color with the whitest head you can possibly have. An apricot aroma with a slight sting of bitterness mingles with notes of banana and caramel, as well as some slightly aggressive hop bitterness. What does all that equal? Trouble! This beer is far too refreshing and easy to drink at 9.5% ABV—which is perhaps the reason behind the Grim Reaper on the label. One thing we know for sure is this beer screams to be paired with gyros.

The Princeton’s name has been in the booze industry since 1934, the year Princeton’s Saloon opened. In 1979, Joel Princeton opened up Princeton’s Liquors in Maple Grove. In 1997, his son Bill started and developed an affinity to beers not served at college parties. His love for craft beers helped turn Princeton’s Maple Grove into the craft beer store it is today.
