Hello everyone! Looking for an opinion or some advice as to whether or not vanilla would be a good flavor addition to a Belgian Tripel. I was really excited to see that NB now offers the Tripel extract kit in a small batch 1 gal recipe, so i quickly scooped up a kit along with a Zombie Dirt kit (because, duh!). I just recently bottled a one gallon Tripel kit from Brewer's Best, bc it was available at my LHBS, and the sample i had was delicious. I can only imagine the NB kit to be of better quality, and I have have some leftover vanilla beans I could put to use.
I'm not looking to add a huge punch of vanilla, but I'm just a huge fan of the flavor (especially in beer), and am really a fan of Tripels, especially in the summer, so I'm trying to create some home brewed inventory. I've never seen a commercial vanilla Tripel (that i'm aware of), and my worried its because the flavor profiles somehow don't mesh.
In my mind, I just think the sugary sweetness of the Tripel, with some slightly enhanced notes of vanilla, would be really tasty!
