In this review I check out the latest release from the Stone Brewing side project Stochasticity Project. This time it is their interpretation of a Belgian quad with the twist being they used a new type of grain called Triticale. Triticale is a hybrid of wheat and rye. Check out my review to see what I thought. Cheers!
When testing the inherent makeup of the quadrupel—the warmest and darkest of Trappist monastery beer styles—we added triticale, a hybrid grain combining the pleasant flavor of wheat with the elemental durability of rye. We originally explored this nouveau twist on a traditional style in 2010, when brewing a test batch of a potential beer in our Stone Vertical Epic Ale series. Brewmaster Mitch Steele reached for and subsequently improved on that pilot recipe, bringing it to life as part of the Stone Stochasticity Project. The result is a quad that’s lower in sweetness, but rich with dried fruit and spice nuances.
