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.

Great floral scents complement this phenomenal trippel. I have had several other New Belgian products but this my friends is their best work to date.

Veerry sweet... a little too much so for me. Still good, but I’m not one for something this candylike.

UPDATED: MAR 6, 2003 Deep golden yellow color, small white head. Flowery, yeasty and faint alcohol aroma. Fruity spicy banana-clove malty flavors. Full body, full soft mouthfeel, balanced lasting finish, warming alcohol effect, dangerous drinkability, got to be careful with this one.

Great golden color, with a great malty, citrus flavor. A great Trippel...definitely one of my favorites.

A nice clear golden color with a beautiful frothy head. Smells very bubble-gummy. There seems to be very apparent bubblegum taste mixed with the hoppiness. Nicely fruity and pretty smooth. A nice amount of cloying but not irritating. A bit sweet for me, but a great choice for something different.

Strong floral aroma and malt flavor, also some citrus flavor in the malt. Smooth and well-balanced, not as spicy as I like, but a great tripel.

aroma is candy-like and spicy. most unusual aroma i’ve smelled yet in a beer. the spices are in the flavor as well. could also taste the alcohol a bit too...but not surprising at 8.7%...excellent beer.

wow, this brew has a great balance of bite and sweetness. I wouldn’t know this was brewed outside of Belgium. A great Trippel.
