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 Zeusís 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.

IslandHaole (1228) - Mililani, Hawaii, USA - FEB 17, 2006
A honey color, slightly hazy with small, white, sparse islands of small bubbles and a ring around the edge of the glass for a head. Spicy hops, bubble-gum sweetness with slight woody notes. Smells yummy! Sweet up front, grainy, cotton candy, dry, spicy finish. Warm bittersweet follow. A good, but not great Tripel.

2/15/06 (bottle): Erupted from the bottle as a light yellow-orange with a lot of activity in th ehead. Bit spicy/yeasty nose. Pleasant drinking ... warm and smooth ... apricot, yeast, tart finish are my impressions. Quite good.

ChillCoat (1029) - Concord, California, USA - FEB 15, 2006
Bottled. Pours a clear, light copper color with a large white head. Initial aroma is that of freshly cut sawdust. Other aromas are a phenol; yeastiness, apricot and peaches. Flavors are malt, peaches, some spice and some fruity esters. Clean yeasty finish.

Sincere (145) - wichita, Kansas, USA - FEB 8, 2006
12 oz bottle. pours a light amber, with large head and very active carbonation. LIttle to no smell; maybe a slight underlying sweetness at the most. The taste suprisingly blossomed into a real citrus flavor, with quite an alcohol kick. If I had any complaints at all, it might be that itís a bit on the fizzy side for me, but overall, an excellent beer.

paulmetzger (154) - Pocatello, Idaho, USA - FEB 5, 2006
Malty, only mildly skunky aroma. Pale yellow with lots of carbonation. Sweet fruity flavors with a light musky finish. Didnít really care for it, but itís my first Tripel.

This is a good tripel. Fruit aroma and lightly hopped. More fruit combined with alcohol in the flavor. Simple but pleasant.

Probiere (992) - Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 31, 2006
I thought for sure Iíd rated this but I guess not. Not as much as I thought it would be considering my love of their dubbel. But still a decent beer. A soft mouthfeel replete with moist earth and candi sugar sweetness and hints of deeper caramel. Highly aromatic hops reminiscent of Saaz. Better than average yet in the end, just so-so.

zombywoof (461) - Overland Park, Kansas, USA - JAN 21, 2006
UPDATED: SEP 25, 2010 Very nice aroma of orange peel, coriander and hops. And equally nice flavor of orange, mint and light hops. Tasty. Makes me very reverent. Nice finish- soft and dry with complex undertones

KUEric (936) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - JAN 21, 2006
UPDATED: FEB 4, 2006 12 oz Bottle: It smells of bubble gum, sugary/sweet, yeast, etc. The pour is a big tall head that is quickly dissapating. The taste isnít that great. Its spicy, hoppy, tart taste withsome corriander pretty prevelant. Not very strong, but some apple juice taste with some too fizzy feel.

Cletus (6355) - Connecticut, USA - JAN 20, 2006
Pouts gold/orange and slightly hazy with a nice white head. Smells of citrus, coriander, sugar and some sage. Taste is peppery and spritzy with an oily mouthfeel. Some nice hoppy undertones on the finish.
