COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Rich pale malt flavors provide a solid base for zesty Styrian Golding and Czech Saaz hopping. Trappist ale yeast contributes the fruity, spicy profile of classic, monk-brewed, Belgian ales. Our Trippel is luscious, fiery, golden brew and a contemporary rendition of traditional Belgian Trippel.

chimaybier (71) - California, USA - SEP 12, 2008
1Pt. 6Fl. Oz. bottle @ Raja Liquors in Livermore, CA. The pour: Good caramel color, with very good head retention. The bouquet: some good maltiness, breadiness, and fresh yeastiness, as a trippel should be. The palate: creamy, I agree with the banana aroma, but also with hints of fuits such as peaches or nectarines. The hoppiness that come through lets you know this is a "California" brewed trippel. The finish is mild and pleaseant. This is a slighlty lighter version of a Rochefort trippel. Great job!

Smak och doft av humle, malt, honung, aprikos, citrus, örter, trä med toner av banan, päron och äpple. Mycket fruktig, lagom sötma, rund och len med fin citrusbeska.

To start with the head produces a big fluffy and creamy foam head which is bright white in color. It slowly fades to a thin covering which hangs on till the end and leaves some splotchy lace on the glass. Under the head sits a hazy, honey amber colored liquid full of yeast floaters that hang in suspension. Its aroma is fruity and yeasty with notes of banana and plain white bread. Up front are the classic notes of funky Belgian yeast. It’s fruity, earthy and bready with a touch of spice. Banana is the stand out fruity note along with a touch of apple. Alcohol is present here but mellow and adds some warmth. The sweetness and fruitiness hits its peek in the middle before the hops move in and adds there dry earthy/leafy notes and mild bitterness to the finish. The body has a solid medium feel with plenty of carbonation.

Pours a hazy amber body with a thin head. Lightly funky aroma. Nice taste with a not so nice finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

VictorStr (1200) - Helsingborg, SWEDEN - JUN 12, 2014
Viss jästighet i aromen och smaken, alkoholen skiner igen lite. Annars balanserad och aningen kryddig smak, Kroppen är len och tjock.

Bottle. Pours golden with a medium white head that hangs around. The aroma is of haybarn and Light hops. Flavor is mildly sweet, moderately alcoholic. Low bitterness but very little lingering sweetness either. The finish is nice and yeasty. A true to style trippel. Excellent.

stefannilssons (1446) - SWEDEN - MAY 21, 2014
Det här var inte alls dumt, smaken var tung med tydligt fruktiga och kryddiga inslag. Kroppen var riktigt stabil och balansen finjusterad, slutsats; riktigt bra öl.

SamTheBarrel (376) - Vallentuna, SWEDEN - MAY 16, 2014
650ml brown bottle, poured into a Tulip glass. Appearance is cloudy straw colored with yeast floaties and a medium sized beige head, that reduced quickly leaving no lacing. Aroma of orange peels, dried apricots, lemon zest, banana and pears. Flavour of orange peels, lemon zest, banana, pears, dried apricots, wheat bread, spices, processed sugar and a hint of alcohol. Taste is light-medium sweet and medium bitter. Palate is medium bodied, smooth texture and average carbonation. Overall a great non Belgian Trippel but slightly too sweet, not as crisp as the classic Belgian brews.
