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.

GSH1976 (307) - Delaware, USA - MAR 25, 2013
Pours a clear golden with just a hint of orange along with ample white head that dissipated quickly. Aroma is yeast, spices (coriander) and I think some banana. Taste is initially sweet has a nice bitter finish which lingers for a little. Medium bodied. I admit to being a novice when it comes to Belgians but from my limited experience I donít think this one compares to the better ones out there. Having said that, this beer is very crisp and enjoyable and offers a great value.

jflopsu (1165) - New Jersey, USA - JUL 25, 2016
Pours a light hazy yellow with whit head. Has a strong citrus hop and yeast aroma. A sweet citrus taste with some pine but fairly watered down. A lingering dry hop and yeast aftertaste.

MissAnthropic (24) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - JUL 21, 2016
Growler. Thin foam and clear pale gold. Mildly yeasty nose, hints of pepper. A light yeast with subtle bitters and a clean finish. Hides the alcohol well but I canít help feel it could be better.

reberiii (498) - Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 4, 2016
Tad dry for a tripel, decent bittering hops without a punch. Not a ton of Belgian-y yeast. Itís certainly fine, and Iím not angry at my six pack purchase, but Iím not going to go out of my way to get this again.

Bottle. Gold on color with a white head and lacing. Spicy Belgian yeast with candied fruit - appricott and berries. A liitle boozy.

badhack (492) - San Francisco, California, USA - MAY 26, 2016
Ripe fruit, possibly banana, toasted and dark malt. Brown red with plenty of foamy head. Moderate carbonation and mouthfeel. Overall I found this a good example if the style but too hoppy for my preference.

weihenweizen (3032) - Charleston Area, West Virginia, USA - APR 13, 2016
Refrigerated brown bomber poured into a snifter. Clear golden with no lacing, medium body, low carbonation, and very little lacing. Taste is fruity malt and some alcohol.

KansaiBeerLvrs (4349) - 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 (361) - 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.
