COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
21°P, 35 IBU.
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.

Et skikkelig smakfullt og friskt øl. Lever i høyeste grad opp til lovnadene på etiketten.

Cimbasso (620) - - OCT 4, 2015
Sampled from a 50cl bottle purchased at Sola. Pours a hazy orange colour with a foaming white head. Aroma of real Belgian yeast! Wonderful complex taste of ripe banana, Seville Orange marmalade, and barley sugar. Nicely bitter finish to balance the sweetness (over-sweeetness?) of the beer. A real Belgian-style Tripel, but slightly more orange-peel taste than the typical Belgian style. A really great beer.

Markant røyksmak som er veldig interessant, men også litt på grensen til å være for drøy. Spesielt øl som det nok tar litt tid å like pga røyksmaken, men utrolig interessant!

ngeaney (97) - SWEDEN - SEP 1, 2015
Golden orange hazy colour with a citrusy fruit nose, apples, banana, coriander and a little tartness. Strong hints of Belgian yeast, quite an intense flavour to this beer, yeast, apple fruitiness, light spices and some sugar which probably comes from the sweetness of the wheat. The aroma had spice with fruity esters, some clove like tones. Slightly citrus like you get from oranges but did have some banana character which is very typical to this style.
