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.

Doppelganger (1388) - Dry County, Arkansas, USA - FEB 25, 2005
Pours golden straw-yellow with just a little skim of white head. Aromas of musky yeastiness, sweet grassy-mellon hops, bubblegum, clove and lemon zest. Lots of interesting things going on, with no one aroma hogging the attention. Fresh and spring-clean. Flavors of nice soft lemony maltiness. Lingering tangy yeast. Surprisingly light on the palate. Hides the 8% ABV very well.

Really good. Nice complex aromas and taste. Effervescent amber color with a rich flavor. Classic coriander and orange peal dominate but are balanced well by a dry bite. Shaka Tamasna Kata Frata Brada, JM

49.5F. 2 finger foam, fizz, fizzle, collar. Aroma is a bit woolly, like a woollie rolling in lavendar and alfalfa and clover. It’s a bit like frenching a dog, no offense to the three graces shaking their jigglies on the label. Tripel dry and a bit sandpapery, but the hops tickle. Gingery, peppery, lemony. Tripely tickley. Lovely. Has this dried out in recent years? Dried lemon zest. Some horse barn dust. Delicious. Nasturtiums. Buckwheat honey.

(12oz bottle) Pours very light amber with very little head that quickly dissapates. Tiny pockets of carbonation present. Smells of light malts and light vegetation. Nice balance of malts and ripe fruit. Sparkling mouthfeel that is a little dry in the end. A medium tart and bitter atertaste. I liked this one. My favorite New Belgium so far.

Bottle. Pours a hazy light amber color. Maybe not really hazy, just tons of tiny little floaties in there. Nice white head, some lacing. Aroma is spicey, a little yeasty. Drying qualities. A touch of pepper in taste with a bit of bananna esters. Pretty nice. Thanks Eric!

Brew courtesy of csbosox.Pours a golden honey color with no foam.nose is not as intense as most Belgians but the tell tale yeast strain is obvious..Mild malts and almost a straw aroma comes off this.Soft fruity taste with a musty tone.This is a brew i would like to have as regular in my fridge.Thanks Chris.

DocLock (8158) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 3, 2005
Thanks to fly for this. Pours turbid dark straw, with huge white head. Aroma of malt, hopcit, candi sugar. Tastes very hopcity, malty, with solid candi sugar presence. Smooth palate, and not as "densely funky" as many Belgian tripples I’ve had. I could drink this all night, which would probably get me hammered by 8 PM on most nights. New Belgium Brewing Company is the Belgium of America. Make no mistake about it; this a great beer in any country.

This is the absolute best beer that you can get at this price range. One of the beers that I purchase more than any other on value alone. If I cannot afford something pricey, I seem to always go with Trippel, and always end the night very satisfied. Very good price.
