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.

(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.

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.

Tejas (909) - Dallas, Texas, USA - JAN 22, 2005
Smells & looks like apple juice. Gold in color with almost zero head. Spicy & dry to the palate. Has that typical New Belgium metallic taste to it. Pitiful.

Walt (2449) - Austin, Texas, USA - JAN 20, 2005
Pour is cloudy orange with a nice fluffy and dense off white head...smell is a little disappointing...straw, yeast, a little cookie dough...not overwhelming...fantastically easy to drink, I think because there wasn’t a whole lot going on....a little watery with a fizzy rather flavorless mouthfeel...sweetness, orange rind, clove, maybe some pepper...sticky sweet finish...

RateandPillage (426) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - JAN 7, 2005
Pours golden and slightly hazy. Thin white head that disappears quickly. Belgian biscuit aroma. Moderately carbonated, maybe a bit too much. Nice balance, maybe a bit thin on the malt though. Bitterness in the aftertaste. Overall a pretty decent Trippel.

picked this one up in san fran.spilled the trippel into a chimay glass.it foamed up a wonderful white head that coated the trappist glass and gave off a yellow swampy head as well.when i brought the glass up to my nose i recieved a gift of straw,belgian yeast,and that signature bisket like aroma that new belgium in known for.i then dipped the glass to get my first sip of this already impressive abbey.i was stunned....i took in a nice blend of hay,belgian yeast,malts,and that lovely new belgium bisket flavor.this could very well be the best trippel i have ever laid my palate on.
