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, 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.

SubstanceT (1092) - Saint Louis, Missouri, USA - APR 4, 2004
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.

mickblueeyes (106) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - MAR 31, 2004
This beer is the color of young Sauternes and has a fizzy white head which lingers, but has no lacing. The nose is soft with notes of malt, horehound candies and subued tree fruit. The palate is lightly sweet, but well balanced. The malty notes fuse well with the lightly acidic fruit quality and the slight hops note. The finish is lightly prickly with some nice hops and sweet malt.

awaller05 (305) - Sharon, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 29, 2004
Beautiful poured golden brew with nice medium head. Sweet smell to begin and a nice hoppy smell. I taste the hops on the first sip but it isn't something that knocks your socks off. Nice finish with a fruity undertone.

120z bottle. My one and only to rate. Golden color with a subtle aroma. Belgian yeast with some hints of caramel make this a beer that is growing on me. To bad its my only one, a beer I would pick up every now and then in a sixer.

willblake (2647) - Bel Air, Maryland, USA - MAR 21, 2004
Golden, not very cloudy, with a rain of carbonation, and medium, brainy froth. Aromas are more subtle than expected, but rather true to New Belgium's style. There is a nice balance and interactivity between aroma and flavor with this beer, especially with the more pungent floral and coriander notes. Delicious, but not my favorite...perhaps too complex for me to manage just yet, but I just can't totally wrap myself around this one.
