3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
I don’t have a lot of good things to say about New Belgium. For the most part, their beers to me fall short of the mark, poor imitations of the styles they pursue. But this tripel and their dubbel are pretty good. It ends a little too sweet for my taste, but as a big fan of this style, I have to say that it is overall a good example.

Bottle. My intro to Trippel. Smells somewhat sweet and taste is also sweetish, but somewhat bitter. Nice yellow color with foam. Nice intro to trippel style.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Clear golden pour, little carbonation and some sticky lacing with a nice fruity/sugary nose. Flavor has nice sweet malty backbone, plenty of the fruity Belgiany yeast you’d expect in a traditional Tripel and finishes with some clove. Well priced 6-pack to pick up if you don’t want to spend twice as much for the real thing.

"nice light but present hopping and spiciness lend a nice floralaroma to this beer. the flavor is a touch fruity, with the hops and yeast in the background. fairly straightforward, but good."

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Taster at brewery. Pours golden with a white head. Not a lot on the nose. I get some of the Belgian yeast thing on the tongue but it’s pretty subdued otherwise. Finishes clean. Kind of boring.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
355ml bottle. Pours a clear medium gold, with a small white head, which lasts fairly well and leaves a little lacing. Spicy Belgian yeast, coriander, a little citrus freshness and a touch of honey make up the aroma. Spice and citrus hops up front fade into coriander and spicy yeast in the mid-palate. More yeast mixes with honey in the finish. A nice crisp but complex tripel.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
bottle. Poured clear golden amber with a moderate creamy off-white head. Grassy wheat, yeasty aroma. Medium-full body, almost creamy carbonation and not overly dry. Mainly wheat malt flavour with spices coming through, coriander, pepper and banana peel, but still has some sweetness to it. Alcohol well hidden.
