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.

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.

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.

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 (3179) - 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.

YourDarkLord (1800) - Urbana, Illinois, USA - JUN 2, 2004
On a night of tasting piss-water beer, this was a welcomed experience. Amber with frothy white head. Aroma was sweet, floral, some herbs and spice, citrus. Good mouthfeel. Creamy. Some light fizz. Taste was sweet, fruity, some alcohol. Nice. Very nice.

frylock (1135) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - JUN 1, 2004
Clear golden color with a nice white head. Yeasty, peppery fruit aroma. Big yeasty flavor with a peppery spice and slight fruit undertones. Slightly phenollic finish. Nice example of a trippel.

Bottle. Once again from new Belgium a beer with a distinct lack of guts, especially for a trippel, having said that, i guess its pretty soft and a approachable, and in general theres nothing wrong with it, its just not very interesting.

Eyedrinkale (3213) - Astoria, New York, USA - MAY 24, 2004
Gold color with almost a surprisingly tiny head. Has a yeasty and spicy aroma. Taste is first sweet bananas followed with mellow cloves. A bit dissapointed, as I have been holding out drinking what I thought would be NB’s best beer, but still good. I would have liked a bit more carbonation and a bit less sweetness. At least it’s 8.5, which doesn’t make it coat my tongue.
