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.

A very good "American" Trippel. Reminds me a lot of Chimay. Good aroma and a smooth flavor. I was pleasantly surprised.

scampycampy (29) - Wesley Chapel, Florida, USA - MAR 22, 2014
UPDATED: MAR 23, 2014 Bomber: pours golden orange and a little cloudy with a moderate fluffy white head. smells malty with some spice. tastes a bit malty and nutty with a malt and bubble gum finish. bubble gum being the very last flavor. I’ve had better Trippels, but this one will do for sitting at home.

jmcgavin12 (427) - Madison, USA - FEB 22, 2014
Pour a hazy light orange/tan. Voluminous white head with aroma of belgian yeast, hay, and slight hints of alcohol and spicy fruit. Taste is balanced with a medium sweetness, low duration, and low level of complexity. Not the best trippel but still a delicious beer.

RasmusOtt (968) - Aalborg, DENMARK - FEB 11, 2014
Pours amber with a white head (crazy) . Aroma of fruity belgian esters, sweet belgian "candy" as I like to call it. Also some mandarin, sweet spices and ripe fruits. Taste also has alot of those sweet fruity belgian yeast esters along with some weak hops, spicy notes and sweeter caramel. Decent!

BeerandBlues2 (9094) - Hanover, Maryland, USA - JAN 21, 2014
Bottle at home. Pours lightly hazy orange with a medium, bubbly and frothy white head, short retention that recedes mostly to the edge, and faint spotty lacing. Aroma is medium Belgian candi sugar, light pear fruity esters, light spicy and earthy hops, some pineapple notes, medium-light biscuit and Pils malt, no DMS or diacetyl. Flavor is spicy and peppery, nearly fusel alcohol, medium pear and pineapple esters with a faint tartness, light black pepper notes and spiciness, light earthy and spicy hops and light-medium bitterness, supporting crisp Pils and biscuit malt with a dry finish. Medium-full body, medium-high carbonation, and medium alcohol warmth.
