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 Zeusís 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.

I love Belgian Trippels but this does not seem to be the best I have had. The aroma is light. the appearance is great, golden orange with great head. The flavor is not as sour as I have come to enjoy in a trippel. It is clean, smooth and tasty, I feel that it tastes to light. Maybe I have been drinking to many heavy beers recently. But I still like Allagash and Victory Golden Monkey better.

Not my favorite Belgian Strong, but a very good lighter choice...but only in terms of the color and flavor. This is delightfully heavy on the ABV. Definitely smells and tastes earthy...but in a good way.

UPDATED: JUN 4, 2004 Wow, and it's even made here in the U.S.! Aroma is of yeast, vanishing malt, and rotting flowers (in a good way). Kind of like a 2 week old jack-o-lantern. The flavor follows along these lines, along with the usual orange and coriander notes. Slightly skunky with an edgeingly metallic sweetish clean finish.

Wonderful fruity flavor and smooth body. This stuff has a great complex taste that never gets old.

Gorgeous color. Spiced aroma reminiscent of seasoned wood, citrus fruits, and Autumn. Very pleasing to the tongue, full bodied flavor. Rather warming on the way down. A beer to drink with friends around a bonfire on a cool autumn night.

UPDATED: MAR 30, 2008 Bottle... This beer rocks!... The aroma is interesting and complex. Cornbread... thatís right, bro. Also, notes of collard greens, lime, bubble gum, fuzzy fruits, clove and nutmeg. Ok, no collard greens, but I couldnít resist. No racism here, just good fun. Iíve never smelled my deceased Arkansan grandmotherís famous homemade cornbread in a beer before. Ok, moving along... This sparkling clear, golden ale has a large, white, frothy head. Quickly diminishing, but leaves good lacing. The flavor is malty, fruity and spicey up front. Pleasantly bitter, slightly pungent and just a hint of salt on the backside. Very well balanced. Medium-bodied with a dry mouthfeel. Fizzy carbonation. A long, very dry, clean finish. Excellent trippel. Thanks to kyzr for this one!

UPDATED: OCT 12, 2004 Whoa, this was wierd. Starts out with a nice taste, but the finish has a kind of funny taste. Not bad. Alcohol % was well masked though. ReRate: This is a good belgian beer, although made in the U.S. Fine spicy taste and very easy to drink. I never knew the alcohol was so high! ReRate: Malty, well hidden alc but somewhat lacking in taste.

A very good American Belgian style beer. Wonderful golden color. Spicy aroma. Smooth going down. Very little aftertaste.

Bottle. A cloudy medium golden color with lots of rusing bubbles and a large foamy white head. The aroma is strong and up front with lots of floral hops, citrus, and dry wood. It is dry and spicy on the palate.

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.
