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.

One of my favorites from NB and probably the best domestic Tripple. I have some being aged. Also watch for the Grand Cru which is brewed every 1000 batches of NB beer.

My favorite New Belgium brew. Earthy floral taste. Golden color with a big head that tats into fine brussel’s lace. Great complexity for an American beer. two thumbs up.

By far New Belgium’s best brew. Much more ballsy than the others, real depth of flavour. Very well rounded.

What an outstanding beer. golden, light head/ aroma is strong, spicy and citrusy. Nice sweet flavor, pleasant fruit flavor lingers on the palate.

One of the best, if not the best, American Belgian style strong ales. I like the Grand Cru (available in winter) even better.

Came out of the bottle the color of orange blossom honey. Big fluffy white head fades to lace. The ’earthy and floral’ aroma from the commercial description is right on the money. Flavor is a little citrusy with a tanginess that is refreshing on a summer day. Alcohol is well hidden in my opinion. All in all, this is a good beer. Thanks to Gusler for this one.

Best by 19 Apr 03. Dark golden color with a nice lasting light cream colored head. A lot of small white ’floaties’. Light malt and floral aroma. Quite carbonated with hop oils all over the place. I am thinking this one should have set down of a bit. Tastes are ’green’. Sharp alcohol, even when cold. Very mouth coating in feel. The yeast in the bottle appears to be pure white. I really had to shake the bottle to get it out which added to the amount of floaties. An interesting yeast that stays in small chunks. warms nicely and the flavors meld a bit. Too sharp and abrupt for a higher echelon triple. With some age I would wager this would be outstanding. Unfortunately, I only have this one sample.

Excellent, excellent brew. Picks up where the Abbey leaves off and does tremendous things. Just the right amound of alcohol kick to accompany the blend of floral, citrus and malt.

You won’t drink many of these at one time. Very heavy belgium styled beer. We balanced with the bitterness and the yeast aftertaste.
