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.

I had this served at a bar named champs by Champ himself. This is by far my favorite new Belgium beer. Its not as offputtingly hoppy as the typical new Belgium. Itís great. A great malt flavor with an abnormal hop character for a trippel. With a great coriander tone.... Itís great. A must try by a brewery with a million must tries. Do it. Itís worth it.

Hopmaestro (653) - ÷rebro, 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.

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

tightslice (465) - Redwood City, California, USA - AUG 20, 2015
Bottle from Whole Foods Market in Redwood City, CA. Aroma is sweet banana, floral, spicy. Taste is mild banana, some spiciness. Very sweet and mildly artificial. Not a fan.

Goblincat (394) - Petersburg, Michigan, USA - AUG 16, 2015
Smooth but really boring. The flavors seem suppressed and not as complex as a Trippel should be. I was hoping to be impressed, but really wasnít.

Bottle Candy sweet, coriander, a bit funky. Sweeter than a typical Belgian trippel.

Steve_0 (3424) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JUL 10, 2015
Bottle at home. Pour is clear golden-orange with a big white head and sticky lacing. Big spicy aroma - coriander, white pepper, grassy, slightly herbal, lemony, doughy, and basil. Taste bring a lot of black pepper, musty, Belgian yeasty, herbs, some biscuit malt, citrusy, and grassy with a spicy finish. Full mouthfeel with high carbonation. Easily one of the best American-made Tripels out there.

chinchill (3117) - South Carolina, USA - JUL 8, 2015
12 oz bottle poured a clear, light amber with a smallish but long-lasting white head. Aroma - coriander (perhaps too much), clove, toasted grain and yeast. T - flavorful; some fruity sweetness up front, but still more bitter than expected, especially in the finish and aftertaste; plenty of spiciness but still seemed lacking in complexity. M - smooth and somewhat thin (as expected for style); medium carbonation imparts some crispness. O - I tend to have a love/hate reaction to tripel style ales, with a good number being unappealing and a minority (usually Belgian) being well above average. This one is in the middle ground but still not my cup of tea. {revisited and review tweaked in Sept. 2012]

minutemat (2563) - Shrewsbury, Shropshire, ENGLAND - JUL 7, 2015
330ml bottle from Saveur-Biere.fr. Pours hazy blonde with big white head. Perhaps a little creamy and fluffy than I imagined. Certainly much sweeter than a Belgian tripel, even coming across more like a wiessbier, with additional vanilla and marshmallows coming through. Ok, but a bit fluffy for me.
