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 Zeusís 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.

This poured out a hazy golden yellow with a slight white head rising above it. The head is gone quick without leaving much in the way of lacing. Scents of orange, coriander and other spices were present. There were notes of other fruits and of a bit of malt sweetness. The flavor was similar with spiciness, apples and doughy malt. A bit of lemon was present and the after taste was spicy and a tad bitter going down, very tasty. Mouth feel was medium and creamy and a bit heavier than most other triples Iíve had. Good drinkability I really enjoyed this one and would get it regularly.

12oz bottle, gold with a 2" white head, aromas of malt-spice but faint, dry semi sweet and bubbly, light to medium body and pretty good balance, not bad at all.

Copper-orange in color, lightly cloudy, white head. Aroma of sweet malt with banana, apple and a spicy hint to it. Sweet flavor with a nice tartness to it. Fruity flavors with similar spice as the nose. Sweet but not cloying. Medium body with a dry feel to it. Thanks to Doppelganger for the bottle!

UPDATED: JUL 5, 2005 Bottle. Aroma is very doughy with lots of bready notes. Slight sweet pepperiness. Pretty mild aroma, though. Mildly hazy dark golden color with a decent white head. Quite bitter and roasted to start with banana and clove notes in the middle. Finishes hoppy and slightly bitter. Alcohol is present. A little rough around the edges.

ChazyRPh (583) - Chazy, New York, USA - APR 29, 2005
bottle. slightly hazy golden pour with a nice fluffy white head. Spicy aroma, yeastly with a hint of banana. Nicely carbonated, spicy start. Hoppy, alcohol hits you right in the face. Earthy, dulling in the middle, the finish is spicy also. Something is not quite right. Average tripel, in my opinion.

arjoseph (642) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - APR 19, 2005
Bottle into tulip glass. 4/19/05. Deep golden and clear in the glass with visible carbonation. Large white head of dense foam. Lacing on the glass is spotty, racing not that impressive. Smell is of spicy hops, yeast, funk, uncooked corn. Smells fresh. Light palate with subtle malt sweetness makes this a refreshing drink, good for summer. Has copious amounts of the Saaz hops, as advertised, which add a spicy peppery and dry bitterness to the finish and really carry the beer in the absense of more dominant malt flavors. Extremely smooth and balanced, this is almost milky in the middle, with some banana smoothie flavors blended with the malty sweetness. Bitter finish is also a bit salty, which I enjoyed as a counterpoint to the initial sugar. Finish lingers and becomes somewhat metallic, and then oddly smokey, which I found enjoyable. This beer demonstrates that simplicity can be outstanding.

Kevin (2185) - New Mexico, USA - APR 3, 2005
pours light amber with a volcano of a white head. aroma is corriander, yeast, and seedless grapes. flavors of yeast , light pepper, and a milky caramel. very clingy mouthfeel. and the sweetness lingers in this one. it is still a good beer. just a bit outside what i look for.

Smells of the county fair: bubble gum and hay. Intriguing copper color; lacks a proper head. Upon first long pull, all preconceptions are blown out the window. Citrus and caramel explosion with a perfect carbonation complement. Smooth finish leaves you pondering when your next taste of this craft will be. A must try for all new Trippel explorers!

bottle from tannertavernboys. "flat" aroma if that makes sense, unlike a flat body. earthy and yeasty and musty. tingly caramel alcohol flavor but the tingle is not from carbonation; it seems to come from a citrusy spice. good beer, good tripel, but just typical for a belgian style brew.

DRANK IT STRAIGHT FROM THE BOTTLE. THOROUGHLY ENJOYED IT. GETS BETTER AS IT WARMS. NICE CARAMEL AFTERTASTE AND VERY SMOOTH GOING DOWN. CANíT WAIT TO GET MORE. IM STEIN
