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.

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.

Hazy golden color with a snow white head of tiny bubbles. Itís your typical Belgian tripel aroma and flavor, flowery, yeasty, mildly phenolic, touch of alcohol. It might have been typical but it was put together well, it shows nice restraint. Creamy mouthfeel. Tasty!

Thanks to csbosox for sending this. Slightly cloudy golden color with a thin white head. Aroma of yeast and citrus. Good and crisp flavor of yeast, citrus and maybe hops. Light to medium body, creamy texture, moderate carbonation. Very enjoyable tripel.

cinnamon and banana aroma with a golden cloud appearance. Flavor is dominated by mild hops with a slight alcoholic finish. One of the cheaper Trippels Iíve seen. I wish I could buy this more often.

UPDATED: MAR 12, 2014 (Been years since Iíve had this beer - used to be a big fan - now, not so much )Cloudy golden pour with minimal head - musty aroma with touches of apples and pears - high carbonation is surprisingly soft on the palate - quite floral, but not what you would consider hoppy - spices, apples, vanilla - medium dry finish - very nice - thanks to Crosling for this one.

12oz - A particular earthy smell with some yeast and sweet fruit. A transparent golden color with a quickly dissapating head and slight lacing. Flavor is sweet and tart. A Belgian yeast with some banana and clove. Palate is slick, smooth, and bubbly. This is a smooth Belgian for drinkin and hides the alcohol well. Great price tag makes it very accessable.

Served in my Duvel glass. Best before 22DEC05. Clove, oranges, and some barnyard notes in the nose. Appearance is as expected except for the rapidly deminishing head, and no lacing. Hints of clove, various spices, some citrus fruits and alcohol. Maybe too much alcohol comes through for the tripel that is only 7.8% abv. Med body with some alcohol burn. Not bad at all for the 5.95 price tage.

From the bottle, this beer poured a beautiful polished amber liquid. There was an off-white ample creamy head that lasted throughout due to a lively effervescence. This left a nice lacing on the edge of the glass. The nose was a complex mixture of malt sweetness with undercurrents of apple, citrus and grass. The mouthfeel was sharp and slightly dry. The initial flavor was a subtle balance of malt sweetness and clove. The middle was dry and the finish, slightly sweet with an alcohol warmth.
