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 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.

superspak (4403) - Michigan, USA - NOV 20, 2015
12 ounce bottle into signature globe glass, best before 4/17/2016. New revised recipe @ 8.5%. Pours slightly hazy/cloudy deep golden yellow color with a 1-2 finger dense and rocky off white head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Nice spotty soapy lacing clings around the glass, with a fair amount of streaming carbonation retaining the cap. Aromas of big apricot, pear, apple, white grape, light banana, coriander, pepper, clove, light honey, biscuit, herbal, floral, grass, and yeast earthiness. Damn nice aromas with great balance and complexity of fruity/spicy yeast, coriander, pale malt, and earthy hop notes; with great strength. Taste of big apricot, pear, apple, white grape, light banana, coriander, pepper, clove, light honey, biscuit, herbal, floral, grass, and yeast earthiness. Good amount of yeast spiciness and earthy bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of apricot, pear, apple, grape, light banana, coriander, pepper, clove, biscuit, and herbal/floral/grassy earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Damn nice complexity, robustness, and balance of fruity/spicy yeast, coriander, pale malt, and earthy hop flavors; with a great malt/bitter/spiciness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Good amount of dryness from bitterness and yeast spice. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth, crisp, and moderately sticky mouthfeel that is great. Alcohol is very well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is an excellent Tripel! All around great complexity, robustness, and balance of fruity/spicy yeast, coriander, pale malt, and earthy hop flavors; and very smooth and crisp to drink for the ABV. A very enjoyable offering.

Lilja (2574) - Malmö, SWEDEN - NOV 6, 2015
Flaska från SB, lagrat något år vilket mjukat upp smakerna. Smak och doft av humle, malt, ljus torkad frukt, vita russin, koriander med toner av honung och karamell. Lagom sötma, bra balans, fina aromer av koriander, rund och len. Mycket gott!

BeerRenter76 (668) - Texas, USA - NOV 4, 2015
Originally rated on 4/15/08-One of my favs from N.B.B.co A nice hearty triple, golden in color, head normally disappears quickly, faint smell of bananas and malt. Tastes like it smells, but that alcohol content! nice buzz. Not the best triple out there but definetley worth trying.

BillHick420 (456) - California, USA - NOV 1, 2015
Pours golden with a tight white head. Belgian fruitiness, banana on the nose. Aroma of the same. Nice sweet, fruity malt aromas that fit the style.

gripweed57 (1303) - Hamilton Square, New Jersey, USA - OCT 10, 2015
12 ounce bottle. Brassy gold color. Smallish creamy beige head leaves a nice clinging lace. Biscuit malt aroma has a hint of yeast and coriander. Slight fruity hops in midtaste. Smooth and eminently drinkable for a tripel. Spicy hop bitterness in finish. Not quite in the league of the Belgian abbeys, though a decent interpretation.

355ml bottle. Pours a clear, golden yellow with a medium, long lasting, white head that laces. Sweet, fruity aroma with yeast and coriander. Sweet fruity flavour with caramel malt, yeast, coriander and finishing on a dry, mild alcohol note. Medium body with a thin texture and soft carbonation.

jcnielsen (3095) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - SEP 11, 2015
Bottle. Pours a clear golden color with white head. Spicy, clove, yeast, bubblegum aromas. Clean, yeasty, spicy, fruity, dough flavors. A really good year round beer that has held up well over the years.

Hopmaestro (1173) - Örebro, SWEDEN - AUG 28, 2015
Backlog from lost & found notes: Aroma is malty and bready, nuts, banana, coriander. Taste is belgo yeast style with a hint of banana and some citrus. Slightly spicy. citrus and grapes join in and it leads into quite a complex brew. Pretty good.

climberbob (381) - Virginia, USA - AUG 25, 2015
Bottle. Not much aroma at all. Mild sweet early malt aroma if I think about it. Taste starts a little astringent. Dried fruit, toffee. Mild herbal notes. Ok. Lighter and not as sweet as some triples. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
