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.

Gold color with a small head. Slightly hoppy. Some corriander spice comes out. Not really well balanced; a citrus zing mixed with the spice just causes too much pain on the palate.

Gold/Orange Coloring. No Head. The Double Made a Bigger Impression On Me. The Taste Was Pretty Mild..Some Alcohol Comes Out. Yeast, Citrus and Herbs/Flowery. Not Bad but Disappointing After the Double.

UPDATED: OCT 23, 2004 The beer has changed significantly with the introduction of the slightly lower alcohol brew. Many of the floral, spicy overtones are now gone. In a side by side tasting the older formula was markedly better. I don’t know exactly what they changed but a formerly fine product now seems mediocre. When tasting this see if you have the older 8.5% or the new 7.8%.

BeerPrince (1701) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 17, 2004
Golden-orange in colour. Aroma is dominated by yeast, along with citrus and hops. The flavour is spicy, slight hops, quite yeasty, floral and wonderfully balanced. It finishes peppery and creamy.

HighGravity (926) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - OCT 12, 2004
(Best by 23/APR/2005) Typical tropical Belgian yeast nose. The head fell fast, but a nice ring stayed around the glass. The palate is medium in body and nice and dry. The finish becomes sweet, but not cloying. I like this beer.

Crosling (1864) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - OCT 10, 2004
Light Gold. Subtle, earthy, astringent and floral hop aroma with notes of light fruits, saaz hops, peach and cooked corn. Lacking the nice fruity malt body that I look for in the style. Dry, yeasty and slightly sweet with notes of light fruits (orange, pear and banana), heavy bubblegum, peppers and possible candy sugar. Another New Belgium brew that nearly put me to sleep from boredom before finishing the bottle.

Surprisingly good; certainly much better than the more common Fat Tire from this brewery. Now I know why they call themselves "New Belgium": very reminiscent of Belgian tripel-style ales. Golden color, nice floral scent, smooth and slightly yeasty flavor...I like this one!

Uriel (146) - San Jose, California, USA - SEP 21, 2004
Light honey-orange color, with a almost white head that sticks around. Yeasty aromas, strongly combined with cloves. Very smooth, and sweet, turning to a gentle bite that lingers on the back of the tongue, with occasional hints of banana.

omnivore (270) - San Francisco, California, USA - SEP 21, 2004
Pours a warm honey gold with a very foamy white head that lingers for a good amount of time. Hefty yeasty smell, tinged with malt and cloves. Hits the tongue warmly, and spreads across it like butter on pancakes. Speaking of which, it’s got a bit of that buttery Belgian flavor. And by a bit, I mean alot. Leaves behind a lightly bitter flavor that makes you just want to drink more.

turbo (1271) - Arizona, USA - SEP 12, 2004
Bottle poured a nice gold color with no head and very little aroma. Flavor is of spice, citrus, but a little to sweet. besides that this is a great tasting beer.
