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.

IndianaRed (2323) - Boise, Idaho, USA - JUL 17, 2004
Bottle Pours a common looking slightly hazy, light amber. A modest fizzy that dissapated after a moment leaving a little lacing. Aroma is swet, fruity, a bit of spice. Busy. Flavor is a medley of tastes. Cloves, floral, a bit sweet, a little malty and hops. The after taste is slightly darker and woody. Finish is smooth a heavy. In a good way. Abbey Tripels are a good thing.

Skip (206) - Indiana, USA - JUL 14, 2004
Initial cider taste followed by the alcohol. Not insulting in the least. Sweet aroma with, once again, the promise of high octane. I found the flavor to be insufficiently complex compared to the style.

hopdog (8796) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 12, 2004
Poured a hazy golden/orange color with an averaged sized head. Large particles. Spicy, citris, floral, and yeasty smells. Tastes of spices, light fruits and some sugar. Alcohol well hidden.

heemer77 (5096) - Urbandale, Iowa, USA - JUL 8, 2004
UPDATED: FEB 21, 2006 Pours with a large white head. The body is a bright gold with lots of fast bubbles. The aroma is bananas, bubblegum and peaches. The taste is very buttery with toffee and whole wheat. This is very dry for a tripel. The finish is a little spicy with some black pepper. Lots of lacing in the glass. There is also high carbonation in the mouthfeel.

OD40oz (773) - Box Elder, South Dakota, USA - JUL 5, 2004
Cloudy yellow or orange appearance in a mug. Not much for head. THis has a smooth taste at first but then it hits you with an odd aftertaste. This was a unique beer. I like New Belgium Brewing Company beers.

npdempse (934) - St. Petersburg, Florida, USA - JUL 3, 2004
Cloudy orange/yellow with little head. Sweet nose with yeast and an odd vegetal tang of squash or corn. Very sweet flavor, orangey, yeasty, with a nice bitter finish.

Lumpy (1802) - Carrollton, Texas, USA - JUL 1, 2004
Bottle. Good looking pour-fluffy one finger head on a gold body. Nose is yeast and wheat. Flavors are malt, citrus, bananna, black pepper, and pear/apple. It is slightly sweeter than I anticipated, and the finish is dry. This isnít my favorite style of beer, but this is ok. I wouldnít make it my everyday beer, but it is pleasant.

Slick (1969) - Thief River Falls, Minnesota, USA - JUN 27, 2004
Nice golden colorwith a small amount of yeast particals floating throughout the brew.Nice lightly malty wheaty aroma with a decent bannana smell coming through,as well as a sweet and sour thing going on.Malty sweet brew with plenty of nicely done bannana flavor and a mild hint of hops in the end.The alcohol makes a brief appearance and fades quickly leaving you with a nice smooth bannana flavor.This is a very nice brew,lots of nice flavor without the over the top alcohol bite that some of these get from time to time.More then worth having more around.Thanks go to Falconseye for sending this fine brew my way.

Pours a translucent ivory, with a suprisingly small head. Very pungent aroma of pears, hops, and yeast. Overall a great triple, but I donít like triples.

Golden liquid, frothy white mostly diminishing head. Excellent spice from the European hops accompanied great balancing malt. One of the best tripels I've slurped.
