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.

Dark yellow color, light head. Citrus and flowery smelling. Smooth taste with many flavors: spice, citrus, sweet..nice. Finishes well as it got better while it warmed up a bit.

Jeppe (2631) - Ølbutikken, DENMARK - AUG 29, 2004
Thin white head, unclear golden body. Mild aroma of citrus, yeast and hay. Flavor of hay and yeast with sour citrus notes. Fresh and typical though rather mild tripel.

12oz bottle, BBD 03SEP04 so this is almost a year old. Lots of yeast/chunks in pour, decent head, murky orange color. Nice citrus & spice(saaz) nose...Some aged malt tones as well...alcohol...some slight medicinal phenols retronasal...It doesn’t jump out of the glass, but it is aromatic. solid mix of malt, hops, yeast, corriander. It drinks well, better as it warms and breathes...almost elegant. Medium bodied. A fairly well-built tripel that has fared the last year nicely, although I’m not sure how many more it could take.

jefcon (1420) - Arlington, Virginia, USA - AUG 19, 2004
Golden and intriguing in the glass. No noteworthy head. This beer excels on the palate. It is complex and grandiose, and it holds nothing back. Caramel, apple, orange, yeast, nut, and hops in excellent balance. This brew has a malt finish and a long life, from the lacing to its imposition on the next beer you drink. A very good American trippel.

jsquire (3562) - St. Marys, Ohio, USA - AUG 18, 2004
Deep yellow color out of the bottle with a whispy white head and a sweet, spicey nose. Lighter palate than I associate with abbey tripels. Nice coriander, belgian candi sugar flavors. finish has some wood and yeast notes to it. Pleasant tripel.

Kalli (502) - Falun, SWEDEN - AUG 14, 2004
The hops give the game away... this isn’t Belgian. Average trippel otherwise, with little to distinguish it.

pobenohne (504) - Northern Liberties, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 13, 2004
In the bottle at a campground near Seattle-Tacoma (DashPoint). A baby trippel? Sure, some coriander, some orange, some floral notes, but really minor league compared with "mainstream" tripels like Golden Monkey.

AleDrinker (1089) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - AUG 13, 2004
This beer goes great with cheese. But as far as the beer is concerned its really decent. This beer doesn’t have a single attribute that stands out about it, but thats what I like about it. Nice and well balanced. Flavor and complexity may be a bit lacking, I always expect a little more out of a trippel. But very easy to drink and would definitely have again.

BeerLimey (2154) - California, USA - AUG 7, 2004
Clear yelowish appearance, moderate head formation, fine carbonation. Coriander jumps out in the aroma, mild peppery spice, malty, herbal. Well spiced coriander malt palate, tangerine fruit. Malty but well balanced by the spice and evident alcohol content. Very dry, mildly citrussy but not particularly bitter in the finish. Nice complexity but I’ve been on the look out for this for a while and expected it to be world class. Maybe I should have bought the big bottle instead of the 12 oz.
