Our Tripel was inspired by the hard working Artisan brewers in monasteries across Belgium. It is said that the Belgian Tripel is regarded by the Belgian ale drinker as a style itself. Our Tripel is a pale colored ale made with Pilsen malt and a traditional addition of Belgian candy sugar, then hopped with German Noble and Saaz hops. This ale has a light malt nose and a subtle hop aroma. In traditional fashion, this Tripel has been conditioned in the bottle to create natural carbonation and long-term stability.
The Tripel pairs well with fine brie and camembert cheeses, spicy Cajun food, crab cakes, shell fish and roast turkey. Delicious with non-chocolate desserts like apricot-amaretto tart, baklava, Linzer torte.

I purchased the large quart bottle with pop cap. The beer has the expected aggressive white head of the style, but it drops out too fast. The beer has a nice golden yellow color that is cloudy. The taste is too sweet for the style, and not very complex. Hints of light fruit are overpowered by the sugar flavor. There’s a hint of spiciness, maybe pepper. There’s not the typical crisp bite of Belgian yeast, but it does break through a little in the after taste. It could be that the beer I drank is too young; this is a bottle conditioned beer. I’d expect over time for the head to develop and the sweetness to fade. The beer is not to style, but it is a gentle trippel. A bit too sweet though.

This was an ok tripel. Yeasty with a light appearance. Fruit and citrus on the nose. Dry aftertaste with a nice mouthfeel. Winchell brought this in SLC and brought it back to Lawrence in 2013.

Swing top bottle. Yellow with a slight haze and white head. Fruit, apricot, pineapple, candy sugar, light spice, yeast, and light citrusy hops. A nice triple even though I don’t usually like the style much.

Growler @ Utah Holiday Beer Tasting: Hazy blonde, nice husky straw and fresh hop notes. The flavor is citrusy, nice pale malts and a nice hop and clean fresh aroma. Not as crisp and bitey as a belgian but it’s nice.

1 litre swing top poured a clear gold with a quickly disapating white head. Aromas of straw, apple, spice, pear and light pineapple. Palate was light bodied and sm,ooth with a dry finish. Flavors of straw, pear, spice and pineapple with a smooth dry lingering spiced pineapple finish. Needed better carbonation!
