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.

Cloudy yellow or orange appearance in a mug. Not much for head. THis has a smooth taste at first but then it hits you with an odd aftertaste. This was a unique beer. I like New Belgium Brewing Company beers.

Cloudy orange/yellow with little head. Sweet nose with yeast and an odd vegetal tang of squash or corn. Very sweet flavor, orangey, yeasty, with a nice bitter finish.

Lumpy (1802) - Carrollton, Texas, USA - JUL 1, 2004
Bottle. Good looking pour-fluffy one finger head on a gold body. Nose is yeast and wheat. Flavors are malt, citrus, bananna, black pepper, and pear/apple. It is slightly sweeter than I anticipated, and the finish is dry. This isn’t my favorite style of beer, but this is ok. I wouldn’t make it my everyday beer, but it is pleasant.

Slick (1969) - Thief River Falls, Minnesota, USA - JUN 27, 2004
Nice golden colorwith a small amount of yeast particals floating throughout the brew.Nice lightly malty wheaty aroma with a decent bannana smell coming through,as well as a sweet and sour thing going on.Malty sweet brew with plenty of nicely done bannana flavor and a mild hint of hops in the end.The alcohol makes a brief appearance and fades quickly leaving you with a nice smooth bannana flavor.This is a very nice brew,lots of nice flavor without the over the top alcohol bite that some of these get from time to time.More then worth having more around.Thanks go to Falconseye for sending this fine brew my way.

Pours a translucent ivory, with a suprisingly small head. Very pungent aroma of pears, hops, and yeast. Overall a great triple, but I don’t like triples.

Golden liquid, frothy white mostly diminishing head. Excellent spice from the European hops accompanied great balancing malt. One of the best tripels I've slurped.

eboats (1082) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - JUN 17, 2004
UPDATED: NOV 1, 2004 Golden orange in color with a off-white head. The aroma brings with it many spices, orange, and yeast. Has a good yeast character to it, and it bubbles across the tongue. The flavor was characterized by a yeast/malt/spice mix complimented by weak citrus notes. The alcohol was noticable. I have only had the 8.5% version.

Falconseye8 (542) - Evans, Colorado, USA - JUN 8, 2004
Huge billoughy white head out of the bottle. Smells of cherry’s and pears with citrusy hint. First sip, very nice. Smooth drinkable, little bitter kick underneath it all. Very tasty brew. Woody towards the finish. Not as woodsy as fat tire though.

Clear, bubbly pour. Light , thick foamy head. Citrusy, fruity smell. Tastes fruity and alot of citrus. Refreshing brew.

Silphium (3167) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - JUN 4, 2004
Pours with a fairly clear orange body and a minimal off-white head. Aroma of bananas, clove, citrus, white grape, and sugar. Flavor is very tart and sweet, peppery and spicy, with notes of citrus and banana. Rather earthy finish. Solid, though I’d prefer the clove and pepper be toned down.
