COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our Trippel Belgian Style Ale (pronounced triple) opens with a bold blast of hops that slowly gives way to the fruity esters implied by our Belgian yeast strain. The Three Graces hand-painted on the label are Zeus’s daughters Aglaia (splendor), Euphrosyne (mirth) and Thalia (good cheer). In the Belgian tradition of brewing singles, doubles and triples, Trippel is the strongest with the longest fermentation. Remarkably smooth and complex, our bottle-conditioned Trippel is spiced with a trace of coriander.

UPDATED: NOV 30, 2004 Nice hazy banana yellow color with a white head. Sweet aroma, a mix of fruity esters / spice from the yeast and sugary bread from the malt, no real hops to speak of. Sweet malty flavor smooths over the warming alcohol notes, there are some nice esters here, banana maybe. There is a nice balance between the bitterness and the body. A good tripel. Thanks ClarkVV

Beautiful amber color with an off white, substantial head. The lacing is excellent. This beer is really sparkling, it is akin to champagne. The nose is yeasty? and large. I am drinking it from New Belgium’s own glass ($8 for 4). Temp is 48. The taste is identical to the nose. It is yeasty? with great balance. This is the 7.8% brew. It is a hell of a deal for $6 a six pack (on sale). The sweetness sticks around, making for a candy-like aftertaste, but with a tingly hops feel. This really is a fine beer. I am going to stop writing and concentrate on drinking.

Bottle best by May ’05. Very pretty, deep golden body with a big, fluffy white head. Slightly oaky aroma with a bit of alcohol. Flavors were very mellow: some citrus fruit and a mild spiciness. Would have liked to have gotten a bit more intensity out of this one, taste was just too subtle for a tripel.

Sharp aroma of grain with some yeast and light sweetness. Perhaps a bit of vegetable smell also. Crystal clear, full golden color with a thin white head. Grainy, spicy full bodied flavor with an alcohol bite. Hop flavor comes through also. Not bad. Let it warm up to get more flavor.

A very nice tripel that pours a orange color with a small off-white head. Very spicy yeasty aroma. Taste is spicy with a very dry finish. Nice spicy hops balance out the fruity malt start. Hints of orange peel and an almost oaky taste.
