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.

presario (4903) - Stampede City, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 11, 2005
12oz bottle with a best bfore date of March 2002. Pours the colour of apple juuice at the start but blends towards a darker orange with the yeast. Minimal head. Aroma is a muted gentle sugar and yeast. Thick body with a creamy mouth feel. Flavour starts muted for the style but subtle flavours grow on you. A quarter of the way through the bottle and a nice spice is noticed. Nice but lacking a certain zest and flavour for style.

UPDATED: JUL 17, 2006 12oz bottle, best before 18AUG06. Pours a clear light golden color with small white head. Smells of bananas, spices, a little toast, fruity esters and some yeast. Ah, I do get a little leather--heemer77 has opened my eyes to leather in beer. Creamy mouthfeel. Taste is slightly sweet, small warmth of alcohol, small bitter finish. Full bodied, high carbonation. Fairly well balanced--good beer.

This stuff tasted really strange. It tasted like it had some tequilla mixed into it. Not really thrilled about it. Word.

Wolfenstein (96) - Sarasota, Florida, USA - NOV 17, 2005
Bottle. This Belgian style trippel pours a cloudy golden color with orange tints and a small, rapidly dissipating, white head. The aroma is very sweet. It has a medium body with a smooth mouthfeel. The flavor is sweet and citrusy with some yeast and fruitiness. The finish is crisp and mildly sweet with a touch of hoppiness. Very nice ale.

Nate (4186) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 10, 2005
Thanks to JL for this one. Nice Belgian yeast aroma. Earthy and yeasty, barn dust and hay. Mild citrus and some bubblegum. Good tripel-typical aroma of herbal, grassy hops and some sweet wheaty-lemon notes, too. Butterscotch amber hazy with fine particulates floating around. Thin lacing white creamy head. Medium-heavy body, good depth of palate. Medium-smooth carbonation with no burn. Starts grassy and spicy with coriander and orange peel. Wheaty with Belgian yeasties and dry hay. Good sweetness of malt with bubblegum powder dryness at the finish. Mild bitter orange blossom hops. Medium dry finish and a little chalky bitterness. Great flavor and a really good tripel.

trokini (1025) - San Diego, California, USA - OCT 18, 2005
This is a very good beer. Pour is light gold with some carbonation. Aroma is sweet and light. Understated taste. The hops and yeast mix nicely, with mild fruit and malt flavors. Almost like a "Lite" version of other stronger trippels.
