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.

I have to admit that after La Folie, this is my favorite beer brewed by New Belgium Brewery. Pours a light golden color with aroma of honey and dandelion. The initial taste is loaded with citrus and lemon bitterness, but this quickly dissipates into light caramel and fruit. It's amazing that New Belgium can mass produce such a high quality beer. Cheers!

Makes the mouth tingle from the turbulent carbonation and vast amount of spice. Apple, pear, pepper, tabacco, sourdough bread, curacao and a slight sampling of bubble gum. Well rounded, delicious beer.

JonR888710 (999) - Cochabamba, BOLIVIA - APR 9, 2004
Murky iced tead look with lots of gold and light brown. Head is off-white, almost beige merengue head. Smells of malt, pie crust, apple, clove. Taste is clove, water, spit and some malt. Horrible flavor. Perhaps a bad bottle, purchased in Galveston, TX.

This stuff smells like heaven. It just does everything right. There's some sour apples in there, lots of yeast...hazy golden. The flavour is predominately yeast, with a moderately bitter finish. Well balanced malt. Finishes with a warming alcohol flavour.

Gold color, fresh yeast aroma with good carbonation. Not much head, and lacing is slight. Nice flavor, better than I expected for such an easily accessible (Safeway) brew.

UPDATED: FEB 6, 2005 This is my favorite new belgium offering. Yeasty, fruity, bananas, citrus (acidic) flavor. Sturdy and glorious. A fine trippel.

Golden with a big quickly discipating head that is white in colour. The nose is yeasty with perfume hops. The taste sure is belgian with good amounts of sweetness. Very likeable and drinkable.
