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.

To best describe my reaction to the beer, an analogy. My wife and I have an ongoing debate about cilantro. We both love it. But while I feel it should enhance the flavor of the food it’s seasoning, she prefers to smother dishes with bushels of the stuff to the point where you’re basically eating a cilantro salad garnished with other stuff. So back to this Trippel. Now admittedly Belgians are not my favorite style of beer to begin with, but I decided to give this one a whirl since I’m a fan of Fat Tire and wanted to taste their other offerings. The ’Belgiany’ thing just dominates. While I prefer subtle Belgians, this one is just in your face. Maybe it’s the coriander that puts such a brash finish on this. I don’t know. But I had a hard time drinking it. I won’t be too harsh though, because it’s obviously a quality brew, just not my cup of tea.

Bottle. Golden with nice carbonation. Sweet nose. Hoppy and full mouth initially but smooth and balanced with just enough fruity flavor and coriander. F Avey---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

rdixon77 (1409) - Georgia, USA - APR 22, 2015
Old rating. Grainy, some honey, that NB yeast, decently malty and caramel. Reasonably smooth. Decent six pack tripel though not up to Belgian master standards, I suppose.

sturmthis (823) - Ohio, USA - APR 18, 2015
12oz bottle. Gold with one finger head. Spice, sweety candy aroma. Spice, flower, a little sweet. Not bad, but of course not up with the Belgian versions.

IPagan5 (101) - San Marcos, California, USA - APR 2, 2015
Pours golden with big lively carbonation and lacing all over glass. Really floral and spicy aroma that was best part of beer. Flavor was spicy and somewhat earthy hops. Great finish.

Idiosynkrasie (4575) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - APR 2, 2015
355ml bottle. Barely clear, orangey golden colour with small, frothy, diminishing, minimally lacing, white head. Honey’d, grainy-spicy, minimally fruity aroma, hints of plain bitter hop. Taste is slightly sweet grainy, minimally fruity, a touch of honey, biting spicy and bitter hoppy overtones, additional bite and warmth in the alcoholic finish. Hooch-olic.

BierMeHoos (272) - Maryland, USA - MAR 30, 2015
Poured from 12 oz bottle. Aroma is breads and waft of spiced malt. Appearance is a bright light orange with a one finger head. Taste is breads, candy and spice, with a trace of bitterness in the finish and aftertaste. Palate is silky smooth. While not my style of beer this still rates highly.
