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.

Small white head, sticky lace, fair retention. Hazy gold color. Pleasent spicey nose, melon, fruit, peppery, nice. Medium body, creamy mouthfeel. Pepper, citrus, fruity flavors with hints of anise and some breadyness also. Finish is medium dry.

Clear golden color with a lasting head. Yeast in the aroma as well as malt and some hops. Pretty smooth taste, medium bodied. Not creamy or chewy. Overall, a really good Triple. Had this in Lawrence, KS.

I love the tripels. NIce yeasty and flowery aroma. Appearance is nice with a gold body and a froth big off white head. Flavor is slightly sweet initially and has a dry hoppy finish. a nice beer.

BBB63 (5741) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - JAN 13, 2004
Hazy golden hue with nice white frothy head and good lacing. Traditional belgian yeast esters, fruity (grape, apricot, orange. lemon), biscuit malts, floral hops, allspice, and cardemom. The taste wasn't as sweet as expected from the style, which in this case is a good thing since it let the sour and ripe fruit nature shine through. Yep, it's yeasty enough but doesn't come off as chalky or "funky". Fruity and spicy upon the finish, sharper tasting than most true abbey brews. The mouthfeel has a moderate chewy and crisp character. The alcohol is well hidden till the end. Not the class of the great tripels, but it can hold it's own against most American made beers of the genre.

SpringsLicker (3046) - Tennessee, USA - JAN 13, 2004
UPDATED: APR 9, 2005 I liked this Triple. It had a good hazy golden color with a respectable head that laced nicely. It had a fruitbowl aroma and flavor and a crisp finish. Well done Triple. 4/04/05 Re-rate (score is re-rate) Huge creamy head of eggshell white. Hazy orange body. Aroma is citrusy orange and dough. Aroma +1 from original rate. Appearance unchanged. The flavor was a bit acidic and this dropped the palate score 1. Overall dropped 2 points.

21iceman40 (1731) - vienna, West Virginia, USA - JAN 12, 2004
Cloudy golden color with a a small topping of white head. Has a really funky aroma to it, lots of funk. Body seems to be made up much of sour apples and yeast. A fairly solid brew.

DaSilky1 (2606) - San Diego, California, USA - JAN 10, 2004
cloudy, chunky, old schoolbus yellow color with dark, evil floaters galore..solid, but thin sheet of almost off-white suds...funky, sour, yeasty smell with added bacterial grape skin nastiness...big yeasty flavor profile with white grapes, yeasty bitterness, some sourness and astringent notes....mostly pretty damn yeasty though, yet lacking in the funky complexities that the aroma let on..

Loved the nose: big fruity aromas of oranges, grapes and yeast. Cloudy pale orange color and low tight foamy head. Big orange malt taste with yeast tones all over. Excellent Belgian triple from the U.S. Pretty smooth and sophisticated.
