3.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Pours a clear golden color with a white frothy head. The aroma is fruity but mild. This beer has the taste of other New Belgium beers, infused into a trippel. It’s good stuff. Decent ABV too. I don’t like many of the New Belgium beers, but this is a good trippel.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

3.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

(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.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Big coriander in the aroma. Typical "Belgian" flavor. Not an amazing tripel but well made and very drinkable for almost 8% abv.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

Nice bronze pour with a bit of a head. Spicy aroma with a bit of coriander and herbs. Peppery banana flavor with a bit of spice and citrus near the end.
