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.

This is the best NB brew I tried at the brewery - some of the other brews start to get a little sweet (abbey, black) to my taste but this one has enough spicey, smoky liveliness to ride shotgun with its riches.

The Etruscan (544) - Tuscany, ITALY - MAY 28, 2002
Golden-orange color with white weak head. Aroma is very rich, floral, fruity, with banana nose and with light spicy tones. Flavour is complex too, malty and sweet, but extremely well balanced with citrus, candy sugar and hops, ending in a soft spicy and fruity aftertaste. Medium-full bodied. I bought the bottle Iíve rated directly at the New Belgium Brewery in Fort Collins, CO, last year; really great people, there.

Volgon (2763) - Manchester, New Hampshire, USA - MAY 23, 2002
Golden color with big chunks that float to the bottom of the glass and quickly settle and splat flat on the bottom of the glass. This may bother some people, but I thought it was neat. Has a fruity taste/aroma. The aftertaste is a bit flat. Thanks legion242!

Very full flavor and beautiful golden appearance. Quite a kick after a few so drink slowly and enjoy!

Great floral scents complement this phenomenal trippel. I have had several other New Belgian products but this my friends is their best work to date.

Tom Servo (424) - Arlington, Virginia, USA - APR 26, 2002
Veerry sweet... a little too much so for me. Still good, but Iím not one for something this candylike.

MaxPower (961) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - APR 26, 2002
UPDATED: MAR 6, 2003 Deep golden yellow color, small white head. Flowery, yeasty and faint alcohol aroma. Fruity spicy banana-clove malty flavors. Full body, full soft mouthfeel, balanced lasting finish, warming alcohol effect, dangerous drinkability, got to be careful with this one.
