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.

pours golden with a thin head.no lacing to speak of.aroma is bannana,coriander,malt and white pepper.flavor is bubblegum,orange zest,coriander and pepper.medium body,low carbonation for a belgium trip.has a long astringent finish and alchohol seems much higher than it actually is.average trip at best.there is a numbing im getting on my tongue and the roof of my mouth and cant figure it out.perhaps this was created by a dentist brewmaster?new belgium is new to michigan and this is the third product ive tried.so far new belgium is batting 1 for 3.

Bookseeb (109) - Wenatchee, Washington, USA - JUL 12, 2014
Appearance holds a golden yellow color supporting a thin dissipating head leaving fair lace. Smell of Belgian spice from the yeast and light coriander. Taste has the same as aroma having a strong malt backbone and warming from the alcohol. Mouthfeel is medium with good carbonation.

Evolutionary (270) - Ohio, USA - JUL 12, 2014
Bottle from Ty. Nose is appropriate and spicy. Fairly full bodied and smooth up front until spice hits you. Mild though and not too bad but not amazing. Would settle for if I'm craving this style otherwise would move on. ---Rated via my mouth

CPH2200 (274) - DENMARK - JUL 8, 2014
355 ml bottle 7.8% abv. Pale golden colour with foamy head. Spicy malty taste, does not resemble your typical belgium trippel. A bit boozy, a little dissapointing imho.

brigg (499) - Washington DC, USA - JUL 4, 2014
(Bottle) Clear amber body with a big stiff white head. Aroma of banana and spice is strong; some bubblegum, wheat. Medium body; kind of flat. Flavor of clove, banana, wheat; a little muted; very sweet; alcohol is noticeable I’m the finish.

A nice trippel, considering it was purchased at a relatively lower end grocery store and one of the nicest beers they sale. I come back often to this beer for that reason, and the alcohol, though 7.8 % is not overpowering. Actually, I like this beer a lot. It is a favorite when at that store. New Belgium is a nice brewery with overall above average examples. I find the appearance and taste of this trippel a bit underwhelming, but it remains a nice example none-the-less.

Big coriander in the aroma. Typical "Belgian" flavor. Not an amazing tripel but well made and very drinkable for almost 8% abv.

Vignale (1980) - Malmö, SWEDEN - JUN 21, 2014
Flaska från SB. Gyllenfärgad, klar, lågt vitt skum som bildar ett lock. Relativt stiltypisk relativt torr trippel. Lätt kryddig, koriander, lite nejlika och ingefära, jästiga estrar, medelstor pomeransbeska med riktigt fin eftersmak. Trevlig.

matty (174) - Camp Hill, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 15, 2014
12 oz. bottle. Pours a clear gold color with a brief, small white head. Aroma is of fruit - mostly white grape. Medium-light body, some sweetness on the sides...again, grape is coming through for me. Finish is sweet. An interesting interpretation.

Good beer, lots of citrus up on the front and then it foes onto the fruity esters on the nose and very slight spicyness as well as some sweetness on the palet as well. Not the best tripel, but a good tripel not the less.
