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.

Very nice. My introduction to the style. The beer is highly carbonated with a medium body. Beautiful deep yellow pour with a small white head that dissipates fast. Bubbles are active for some time after pour. Slight bitter finish after a tasty, fruity flavor. Definitely not oversweet, very well balanced. You don't taste the alcohol here. I enjoyed this one highly.

Fruity (banana) and oatmeal nose. Amber color, lowish head. Banana is prominent in the taste too which I find kind of disturbing in a tripel. That and the light body kind of made me think I was drinking a american wheat (but a tasty one at that). All in all I do not think the style was hit very well here.

(bottle) Hard to rate, since it was actually tasty, but I didn't particularly like it that much. I felt like I was getting a sore throat drinking. It was really fruity and fizzy etc... I guess it suits the style but it wasn't my fave from the style.

This Belgian style tripel pours a cloudy golden color with orange tints and a small, rapidly dissipating, white head. The aroma is very sweet with hints of apricots, yeast, and alcohol. It has a medium body with moderate carbonation and a smooth mouthfeel. The flavor is sweet and citrusy with some yeast and fruitiness. The finish is crisp and mildly sweet with a touch of hoppiness. Very nice ale.

Golden color, a little cloudy. The Belgian yeast and hops come through in the aroma. Slight citrus bite on the flavor. Very good beer. Cheers Mitch

This is one authentically yummy abbey tripel!! This beauty pours a mildly cloudy amber and orange color with a small white head which lasted only seconds. The aroma is very floral with honeydew, wood, citrusy lime, and esters being apparent. The flavor is yeasty and alcoholic, but pleasant. The flavor is strongly syrupy towards the citrusy lime side. There is however a nice malty backbone which picks up in mid taste and wanes towards the finish. The finish is pretty dry as that alcohol cleans up what is there. Semi sweet ending, some lime and citrus, a tad bit of yeast. Cant help but notice grapefruit undertones in the finish as well. Well rounded beer, carbonation level is medium...i like it a lot. Thanks to mitch for the beer!

Mild spicy aroma, nice head. A bit tart and a little fruity with just the prefect hop bite at end. This a pleasant effort at a good Belgian beer and for the $6.50 a six pack it cost I will be making this one a habit

hazy golden yellow colored w/ a quickly disapating head, this baby is beautiful. Full flavored w/ a velvety tongue feel, this is a must have. Thx beerguy101

Amber color. Thick, foamy off white head that stays with thick lace all the way to the bottom of the glass. Aromma of yeast and brown suger and tastes pretty much the same. The high alcohol content is really evident. Not as good as the abbey, but close. This is really good.

Medium head of coarse carbonation atop a golden yellow body. Little bit of spicy/fruity/floral notes with a prominent malty sweetness. Descent, but just not my style.
