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.

Floral, malty aroma, with some phenols and some alcohol. Pours cloudy and golden, with a small but dense head. Flavor is sweet, balanced phenol, and alcohol, with a fizzy, slightly hoppy background. Great tail lingers with a good balance. Really fine example of the Belgian Tripel style!

Smooth and light for a powerful beer; enjoy with variety of foods and appetizers; not too sweet; a good competitor with the real belgian blondes

Sham (1845) - Seattle, Washington, USA - SEP 29, 2003
Pours golden with some head and lace. Hoppy, floral aroma. Bubbly citrus flavors. Good tripel. Another surprise from New Belgium.

PrinceofNessus (236) - Norman, Oklahoma, USA - SEP 29, 2003
A golden color with thin lacing. A creamy floral aroma. The taste is of bannanas, resembling the abbey.

UPDATED: MAR 18, 2005 Re-rate 4/18/05 I still like this one, but it just seems like it had to have changed. Too sugary, less fruit, and simply not as compex. The last 2 6íers Iíve bought, while good, are just not worthy of my original rate. I just love this one. Since I canít afford the Chimay Tripel on a regular basis, this is a good (and FRESH) sub. Little less sugary than the Chimay; a good thing.

Aurelius (4062) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - SEP 2, 2003
Yeasty, doughy, somewhat milky aroma. Golden brew, poofy head, decent label, light sediment. Good Belgian character, a little musty, dryish (moderate sweetness,) lightly bitter. Very good mouthfeel and trailing bitterness. Well done.

Big floral aroma with large pepper hints. A little bit of banana and grapefruit make their way into the beer's flavor profile. A real treat, to say the least.
