My first trippel ever, pretty complex beer. It took me 45 minutes to drink (figuring out what the hell I was tasting). So many different flavors overwelmed me at first, but a good beer.

Golden coloured. Well hopped and relatively dry. Well balanced, complex and true to style.

Cologne, honey, floral aromas wafting on a bright slightly cloudy orangey golden with a white head. Malt flavors up front sliding into creamy, alcohol, fruit, slight lemon tang. I am thrilled a domestic micro this side of the Mississippi is making a serious and wildly successful foray into Belgian brews. Now only if they distributed in Northern California!

A woodsy floral aroma is followed by the light bite of hops and spice. A well rounded flavor profile ending a little to the dry side.

WOW! I remember teh first time I had this. I was amazed that beer could have such a complex palate. I tried some imported trippels from Belguim and this was true to the style and flavour.

This beer is very well balanced. The sweetness, alcohol, and hops all check each other well, and don’t let one take over. This beer is much less sweet and alcoholic tasting than many other trippels I have tasted, and in my book that is a very good thing. A winner by any standard, and at the price, $7.50 a six pack, an amazing steal.

The aroma smelled a bit skunky and was an intitial disappointment. However, the taste was something else entirely. Great citrus flavors. Very smooth and well balanced.
