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.

PorterPounder (6223) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - MAR 7, 2005
Grapevine Market- Austin, Tx - 12oz bottle. Pours a slighlty murky, medium golden with a faint, but sticky white head, good subtle bubble action. Aroma is not overly apparant, pick up a faint fish odor, some cotton candy and fresh lake water. Flavor has a little bit of bubble gum, some candied sugar and a bit of alcohol. Turns slighlty cloying near the end. Mouthfeel is sticky and thick, which is nice. Overall, decent, but not one for the ages.

Doppelganger (1388) - Dry County, Arkansas, USA - FEB 25, 2005
Pours golden straw-yellow with just a little skim of white head. Aromas of musky yeastiness, sweet grassy-mellon hops, bubblegum, clove and lemon zest. Lots of interesting things going on, with no one aroma hogging the attention. Fresh and spring-clean. Flavors of nice soft lemony maltiness. Lingering tangy yeast. Surprisingly light on the palate. Hides the 8% ABV very well.

jmcguire1969 (161) - Lafayette, Colorado, USA - FEB 19, 2005
Really good. Nice complex aromas and taste. Effervescent amber color with a rich flavor. Classic coriander and orange peal dominate but are balanced well by a dry bite. Shaka Tamasna Kata Frata Brada, JM

gabbledbabble (60) - Loveland, Colorado, USA - FEB 18, 2005
49.5F. 2 finger foam, fizz, fizzle, collar. Aroma is a bit woolly, like a woollie rolling in lavendar and alfalfa and clover. Itís a bit like frenching a dog, no offense to the three graces shaking their jigglies on the label. Tripel dry and a bit sandpapery, but the hops tickle. Gingery, peppery, lemony. Tripely tickley. Lovely. Has this dried out in recent years? Dried lemon zest. Some horse barn dust. Delicious. Nasturtiums. Buckwheat honey.

(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.
