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.

UPDATED: JUN 22, 2006 Medium body with semi-high carbonation. Citrus taste with spicy and bitter notes. Very smooth and flowing and drinkable. The medium mouthfeel coats the buds well and the flavor really comes out better as it warms a bit. To me it tastes pretty much like what it is, an American version of a Tripel. But it is good, just a different taste than the true thing.

Brad (364) - Berkley, Michigan, USA - JUL 22, 2005
12 oz. bottle: Cloudy orange in color with a somewhat lasting white pillowy head. Nose was light for the style I thought, with oranges and yeast, slight sourness as well. Flavor was also light I thought, I missed the heavy yeast and sweetness, seemed just a little over watered. Finishes with a citrus sour kick.

UPDATED: DEC 3, 2005 7/22/05 Bottle from brad. Pours hazy golden orange w/ small white head. nose is light sour fruit, almost acidic feeling. Taste is bitter with light citrus and astringent feeling to it. Actually has quite a bit of water to it. rerate 12/3/05 Pours a hazy yellow color with a white foamy head. Nose is grassy, citrusy, yeasty, light orange/lime zingy notes. Taste is lots of yeast, dry and lightly chalky, but at the same time shows some signs of citrus fruit juice. numbers reflect rerate.

JMerritt (1931) - Macomb, Illinois, USA - JUL 15, 2005
Straight golden in color, clear, with no head. Looks like a glass full of honey. Malty sweet aroma reminds me of honey as well, with some caramalized sugar, cloves, ginger, alcohol and spicy hops. Graham crackers, toffee, alcohol and banana flavor. Spicy, mildy bitter, mildly sweet finish. Highly carbonated, but it pairs well with this. Thanks, Crash, for bringing this back from Texas for me!

Crash (532) - Macomb, Illinois, USA - JUL 12, 2005
Pours a golden-organce with a little head and lacing. Aroma was sweet with some hints of fruit. Taste was good but, it had a "thickness" to it and I canít explain that took away from the overall taste.

Sammy (10752) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 4, 2005
Smooth, nice yeast. Lace, disapearing head that was small to begin with. Fancy aroma. Good balance, tad of fruit and overall sweetness.Suitably carbonated and some cream in medium mouthfeel. High alcohol but still a good transition to Belgian style. No objections to this. Thanks to Tim (IPFreely).
