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.

Bottle: Poured an hazy golden yellow colored beer with medium head and above standard retention. Aroma is quite sweet with some subtle spice also perceptible. Taste is a bit too sweet with too much candi sugar, which ends up covering most of the wheat. Spices are good but too subtle and again probably covered by the candi sugar. Carbonation is a bit low but body is above average. Alcohol is not discernable which is a great plus at 8%. Overall, there is too much candi sugar for my liking in this one.

Dark yellow color, light head. Citrus and flowery smelling. Smooth taste with many flavors: spice, citrus, sweet..nice. Finishes well as it got better while it warmed up a bit.

Jeppe (2631) - Brooklyn, Alabama, USA - AUG 29, 2004
Thin white head, unclear golden body. Mild aroma of citrus, yeast and hay. Flavor of hay and yeast with sour citrus notes. Fresh and typical though rather mild tripel.

12oz bottle, BBD 03SEP04 so this is almost a year old. Lots of yeast/chunks in pour, decent head, murky orange color. Nice citrus & spice(saaz) nose...Some aged malt tones as well...alcohol...some slight medicinal phenols retronasal...It doesnít jump out of the glass, but it is aromatic. solid mix of malt, hops, yeast, corriander. It drinks well, better as it warms and breathes...almost elegant. Medium bodied. A fairly well-built tripel that has fared the last year nicely, although Iím not sure how many more it could take.

Golden and intriguing in the glass. No noteworthy head. This beer excels on the palate. It is complex and grandiose, and it holds nothing back. Caramel, apple, orange, yeast, nut, and hops in excellent balance. This brew has a malt finish and a long life, from the lacing to its imposition on the next beer you drink. A very good American trippel.

Deep yellow color out of the bottle with a whispy white head and a sweet, spicey nose. Lighter palate than I associate with abbey tripels. Nice coriander, belgian candi sugar flavors. finish has some wood and yeast notes to it. Pleasant tripel.

The hops give the game away... this isnít Belgian. Average trippel otherwise, with little to distinguish it.

In the bottle at a campground near Seattle-Tacoma (DashPoint). A baby trippel? Sure, some coriander, some orange, some floral notes, but really minor league compared with "mainstream" tripels like Golden Monkey.

This beer goes great with cheese. But as far as the beer is concerned its really decent. This beer doesnít have a single attribute that stands out about it, but thats what I like about it. Nice and well balanced. Flavor and complexity may be a bit lacking, I always expect a little more out of a trippel. But very easy to drink and would definitely have again.
