The trippel style originates with the Trappist monks of Belgium, We've named this popular beer for the Trappist founder of De Pere's St. Norbert College in Wisconsin. It's a fairly sweet, medium-bodied, yellow beer, with a nice alcohol bite behind the fruity flavor.

Pour was a clear golden with a large white head, Aroma had plenty of vanilla and banana with some funk. Flavvor was about the same with some creamy vanilla with some banana and a spicy finish. This was a excellent triple from Nebraska!

Great Taste 2008. Trying a brewery from Nebraska was probably the big draw for me on this one, but the description sounded interesting enough. It’s good to know one can find good beer in NE. Notes of hay and wheatfields on the nose merge with bing cherry, ginger, nutmeg, and candied orange peel. Finish is long-lasting, albeit all too clearly showing off its 9%. Solid, and worth a stop at the Great Taste.

Sampled on draught at the GTMW ’08. Pours a semi-clear golden pale brew with a rich and thick white head that slowly dissipates to a thin white and creamy head. Aroma of white bread malt, candi sugar, banana esters, yeast, cloves and a touch of popcorn. Taste is medium bodied, very little alcohol with a flavor of hard pitted dark fruits, banana esters, yeast and a touch of spice. Finish is semi-sweet, fruity with a heavy alcohol warmth presence. The last time I recall having a tripel of this character was at the Egans brewpub in DePere, WI, just before they closed in 2001. I hope Gottberg will bring back the Abbot Pennings Grand Cru.
