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.

KansaiBeerLvrs (4597) - Kyoto, JAPAN - APR 12, 2016
New Belgium Tripel 7.8% A beautiful bright clear gold with a foamy white head. The aroma is vineous, plum, figs, a bit tart but a very nice example of the style. Medium to full mouthfeel with a dry finish. The taste is crackery pale malts and big luscious candied fruits, figs, plums, raisins and while it has some boozy heat it is quite well balanced. I like it, itís a good example of a Belgian Style Trippel, but being in Japan we can get Belgian original versions for less. So if I was in the US Iíd go for this in a heartbeat but being in Japan I think Iíd get an belgian original instead. Really really nice though.

beer_rookie (403) - Arkansas, USA - APR 1, 2016
Pours a light golden color. About two finger head. Head is white and thin. Okay retention and okay lacing. Has white sediment floating around in it.

Aroma is banana and coriander. Also tropical fruity.

Taste is banana sand coriander. Also, true to style, tastes sour. Sweet, malty, Smells yeasty, but canít taste it.

Mouthfeel is medium full body. High ABV, canít taste it.

Overall, itís good. I would recommend it for the style. Iím not a fan of the style. But itís good. I donít know why I bought it, but itís decent enough.

Cajun (388) - Lafayette, Louisiana, USA - MAR 27, 2016
12oz bottle - Poured a deep amber with creamy white head. Nice smell of malted grains, bread, and spices. Flavors of spice, raisins, over-ripened fruit, and a woody herb. Alcohol is somewhat detected along with a bitter finish, but itís not overpowering.

Gespuccian (129) - Wisconsin, USA - MAR 19, 2016
Pours a golden yellow with white head. Nose is sweet, banana, cloves. Taste is of classic Belgian yeast, and some sweet banana thatís tempered by slightly bitter hops. Finish is slightly sweet, slighty bitter, and a touch dry. A good American take on the trippel.

Danmor1 (4) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - MAR 4, 2016 does not count
Delicious gold. Pours its own head, since you can try to pour it without. Creamy white, if you were wondering. Nice, sweet malt offset off the back of the tongue by the hops goodness. Donít go after beer as a first choice, but this almost matches a braggot in character. And, seriously, that head! This is more or less what I could ask from a beer of this particular gravity. Would drink again.

(Bottle) Golden colour with frothy, white head. Fruity, malty nose with dried apricots, bread, coriander, honey and floral hops.
