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.

Draught. Pours gold with orange hints and a rocky white head; excellent film lacing. Sour yeast and leather malt aromas. Sour yeast and leather malt flavor with a citrus hop finish. Light bodied and fizzy dry palate.

JMerritt (1890) - Macomb, Illinois, USA - JUL 15, 2005
Straight golden in color, clear, with no head. Looks like a glass full of honey. Malty sweet aroma reminds me of honey as well, with some caramalized sugar, cloves, ginger, alcohol and spicy hops. Graham crackers, toffee, alcohol and banana flavor. Spicy, mildy bitter, mildly sweet finish. Highly carbonated, but it pairs well with this. Thanks, Crash, for bringing this back from Texas for me!

Crash (532) - Macomb, Illinois, USA - JUL 12, 2005
Pours a golden-organce with a little head and lacing. Aroma was sweet with some hints of fruit. Taste was good but, it had a "thickness" to it and I canít explain that took away from the overall taste.

Sammy (9563) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 4, 2005
Smooth, nice yeast. Lace, disapearing head that was small to begin with. Fancy aroma. Good balance, tad of fruit and overall sweetness.Suitably carbonated and some cream in medium mouthfeel. High alcohol but still a good transition to Belgian style. No objections to this. Thanks to Tim (IPFreely).

Orange-gold color. Fruit, bubblegum and clove aroma. Fruit and alcohol flavor; low in hops and malt. Medium body with a sticky aftertaste. Very good.

Pretty heady and lager-ish in appearance. Taste is extermely wheaty. Not bad, it grows on you, and it is slightly better warm. The alcohol does present itself more in the finish, and if it gets too warm it will remind you of a low-quality malt liquor. If itís not drank at the right temperature, it just doesnít cut it.

KAggie97 (3529) - Ugly, Hot, and Humid Spring, Texas, USA - JUN 13, 2005
This beer has promise, but it needs more. Weak yeast and hops are greeted by a faint malt presence. Remarkably unspectacular, though it does show promise with nice hints of fruit and wood in the finish. Keep working guys; yaíll will get it right eventually.

Going to belgium spoiled me for trippels. I know, Iím being snobby, but it just showed that this trippel doesnít pack the punch that some do. Aroma is slightly floral with some malts there. Taste is also floral and fruity, but somewhat thin. Finish is good and leaves you wanting to take another sip. Thatís a good thing! A good beer but could stand to be more daring.
