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.

Big floral aroma with large pepper hints. A little bit of banana and grapefruit make their way into the beer's flavor profile. A real treat, to say the least.

Beautiful blond color with large white head. Earthy, yeast and citrus aromas. Awesome balance of yeast, fruit and spice flavors. Couldn't get enough of this one.

This is a really a high quality Belgian trippel and is extremely reasonable in price, especially at Trader Joe's. A very accessible, tasty beer. I would highly recommend this to those wanting to try a Belgian trippel on a budget. Nice blond color, plenty of body and a good Belgian flavor. Excellent!

Slightly hazy golden colour with orange highlights and a medium-sized head with very large bubbles. Smells of yeast, bananas and cloves. Coriander seed might be used as well, as the clean/fresh aroma is noticeable. Full-bodied; sweet taste full of great characteristics: bananas, cloves and honey are all very prominent. The alcohol is almost unnoticeable in the taste...which is a great factor! Aftertaste has great sweet characteristics such as caramel and fresh pineapple. Overall, a better than average Tripel, definately one of the best I've ever had.! It gives Ally Tripel Reserve a run for it's money! Pick one up if you've never had it and it's available! This bottle was good until: 12-june-2004, which probably means it was bottled one year prior. I bought this 12 ounce beer at Liqour Mart in Boulder, Colorado.

Golden-orange in colour. Aroma is dominated by yeast, along with citrus and hops. The flavour is spicy, slight hops, quite yeasty, floral and wonderfully balanced. It finishes peppery and creamy. Thanks PhillyBeer.

A nice version of a trippel that is made here in the US. Taste of vanilla and apricot are evident. The phenolics are present and even a white pepper note comes through. Nice Belgian lace that lingers on the sides of the glass. There seems to be a slight sour/acidic taste that is present in the back ground. A nice after dinner sipper with some homemade cheese cake.

Yeasty spicy aroma. Frothy off-white head with excellent lacing. Hazy pale blond in color. Sweetness dominates but there are hints of acidty, bitterness and sour lending a complex flavor. Full bodied with an oily/creamy texture. Soft carbonation. Overall excellent. The color was especially outstanding. A very good American belgian style Trippel.

UPDATED: JAN 2, 2004 Re-rate: Nov 5, 2003. Hazy golden body and soft sudsy head. Strong and pleasing esters. Bubble gum, bananas, green apples, and citrus. Nice yeasty complexity. Well-integrated bitter fruit peel and grassy hop finish. A very nice Belgian Trippel. Gained points with me as I gained experience and sampled repeatedly through time.

Medium, lingering head, dusty amber color. Sweet, almost cloying at times, with a surprising hops presence for such a sweet brew. Lively carbonation. The sweetness is a bit much for my personal preference, but this is a well made beer.
