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 the best American made Belgians I have ever tried......lovely sweet malts, hops, spice, and fruit esthers, with a very smooth finish. Very good.

As good as New Belgium’s Abbey double is, this Triple just might be even better. Amazing that an American brewery could pull this off. Mildly sweet, with plenty of hops and spice. Really enjoyable. Must try it side by side with Golden Monkey sometime.

Good solid head, great color and aroma. Almost a roasted flavor at first with a citrus alcohol finish. Huge carbination! A keeper from NB.

Nice head, with a pleasing fruity aroma. Clean smooth aftertaste with just a hint of bitter. Might be the best NB has to offer.

Nice citrus tones with an almost warm cidery feel. Smooth flavor and a bit zesty!

Nice aroma of yeast and fruit. This beer doesn’t poor a massive head like a lot of belgians. Very nice flavor of yeast and fruit, although withour the depth of some of the true Belgians. Very nice effort from the Colorado brewer.

Re-Rate 10/13/02: As with the NB Abbey I rated earlier, this beer is a little over 2 years old. The color, a foggy golden orange color, the head minimal, off white, the lace vaporous. The bouquet, ambosial, bubble gummy, hints of citrus, and even over ripe pineapple, and one ’Sniffable Beer’. The beer begins extremely sweet, the mouthfeel is light to medium, the finish is lightly carbonated, pleasingly dry, modestly hopped, and a touch of alcohol bitterness in the long lasting aftertaste. Once again a beer that is always present in my ’Beer Cellar’, and worth a try. Ranks #96 on my current 1000 beer master list.

Totally boss!!! It’s the same price as the rest of the New Belgium’s, how can you wrong? Tastes like the alcohol is playing hide and seek in mi boca, muy bueno.

Another great beer from New Belgium (thanks PhillyBeer2112!). The beers in actual Belgium can’t be much better than this can they? Poured a golden amber color with a thick head. Aroma alternated between fruity and hoppy. Cleverly balanced spicy flavor with hops, alcohol, and fruit with a nice citrus aftertaste. Good stuff.

TAR (2518) - Lafayette, Colorado, USA - OCT 9, 2002
UPDATED: JUL 17, 2005 Pours with a sticky, creamy, and rocky foam. Peppery alcohol, slightly phenolic nose. Quite prickly on the tongue. Jumbled mess of plastic and pears doused with candy sugar. Horribly attenuated. Finishes with both lingering peppery and hop spiciness. Either my palate has changed, or this has drastically been dumbed down.
