3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. The pour was a clear medium golden yellow with an average sized (1-2 finger) white frothy head that receded down to a large puddle and small collar with good spotty lacing.
The aroma was mild of a light bread malt and a sweaty yeast with notes of banana, apple, citrus (lemon) and a bit of coriander.
The taste mildly sweet and rather yeasty with a hint of citrus and a slight fruity ester early on, becoming slightly bitter with a hint of banana, a pinch of spice and a slight alcohol presence at the end. The flavor lasted an average duration with a creamy spicy fruity taste left lying on the taste buds.
Mouthfeel was light in body with a dry watery texture and a medium carbonation.
Overall a mild tasting Tripel with a good balance of flavors...

Wasnít able to communicate with the winds. I had hoped to ask them when was the best time of year to drink a New Belgium Trippel. I enjoy drinking beer when weather corresponds to taste but having not drank a belgian style beer in sometime I lost track of my knowledge of its flavors and therefore could not make an informed decision. So I decided to gamble, letting the chips fall where they may, and picked an ordinary summer evening to attempt this out of the ordinary beer. To my relief, the beer is good and works well in these weather conditions.

* Abv 8.5. Balance of yeast, spice, malts. Well balanced with caramel malt. Earthy hops shining on the finish. Yes, a bit watery yet the hops add to a nice finish. Alcohol hidden. Typical American style triple yet satisfying. Enjoyable at the price and availability.

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.

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.

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.
