Ingredients: Malted barley, wheat, malted wheat, sugar, hops, yeast and local Grimstad water. It is very difficult to brew a complex and balanced Belgian-style tripel ale, but we have made an attempt at brewing one anyway! Our respect and admiration for those who master the skill and art of brewing excellent ale of this style is limitless. Tripels often pair with cheese, seafood and fresh vegetables.

En tripel er et fruktig og sterkt ol med en lett og elegant kropp. Vi i Nøgne Ø liker å gjøre ting på vår egen måte. <<Hvordan lage en sinatursmak i en tripel?>>, spurte vi oss selv på ett tidspunkt. Vi konkluderte med at torvrøkt malt av skotsk opprinnelse var svaret.

Bottle, 500ml, from a Vinmonopolet in Oslo. A cloudy golden colour with a small white head. A banana bread aroma with grassy hop notes. Flavour is roasted biscuity malt, sweet honey, orange plus some spicy hop bitterness. Alcohol is evident and warming. Fairly high carbonation. I’m liking this a lot, though it is perhaps lacking some complexity compared to it’s Belgian counterparts.

Vighals (1011) - Sørumsand, NORWAY - APR 3, 2014
Brunorange tåkete i fargen med offwhite skum. Frukt, sitrus og gjærdeig i lukten. Søt fruktig smak av sitrus og malt, humlebitter, kornete med en tørr avslutning. Medium + kullsyre.

vadie (640) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 28, 2014
Orange brumeux avec une mousse moyenne blanche dense. L’arôme des fruits (oranges), les épices (clous) du malt et fume. Le goût est d’abord un peu sucré, puis de l’orange et les épices, avec une finale légèrement amer avec une présence de fumé. Très bien équilibré et onctueux en bouche.

Creamy, fresh and slightly sour tripel with considerable taste of wheat malt. Nicely accompanied by a crisp hop bitterness.

VTHopHead (1511) - Barre, Vermont, USA - MAR 9, 2014
500ml bottle - Pours a hazy dark amber in color with almost no head or carbonation. Aroma has a nice fruitiness and, surprisingly, some peaty smokiness. Flavor has definitely got some peated maltiness along with some mild sweetness and hidden (by the smoke) fruits. Unusual and definitely not a Belgian-style Tripel, but definitely not bad...

Gorm (1114) - Sandnes, NORWAY - FEB 27, 2014
Dunkel lys gyllen farve med lyst skum. Lukt av malt, karmell, frukt, gjær og krydder. Smak av hvetemalt, kramell og gjær. Fruktig. Vinmonopolet.

foxo82 (680) - Tamworth (via Leicester), Staffordshire, ENGLAND - FEB 27, 2014
Pint bottle from Stirchley Wines & Spirits, Birmingham. Well, it was a pint until the bottle turned to Vesuvius when opened. Schoolboy error. Cloudy light orange like pineapple juice. Aroma is complex and intense - ginger beer and citrus lemon/pineapple with slight grass. Like the taste and - sweet but not too sweet citrus tang. Balance could do with a tad more bitterness - it’s over a tad quickly and it’s fizz rather than bitterness that lingers. It’s not heavy, despite the ABV. Very good but just not quite worth a 4

maeib (8621) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - FEB 4, 2014
Bottled 25/01/14. A gold to copper coloured beer with a lasting bright white head. A yeasty and dry bready aroma. Yeasty, sweet sour and floral in the mouth. Dry biscuits. A bit of fruit. Nice enough but a little underdeveloped in that nothing really goes as far as it promises.
