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.

Glad to see a Tripel from this brewery (always nice to see a none-Belgian brewer trying this great style). Pours a hazy golden colour with an amber hue, and a white cap that gives out creamy lace. Aromas of malted wheat (and Barley) with notes of fruits and very mild burnt wood (smokey). The smokiness delivers in the taste as well with peachy wheat and spices in the background. There is a grainy flavour which is weird. Nice brew, but different for a Tripel with the smoke factor (maybe a plus for Islay whiskey drinkers).

BillWyce (1015) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 14, 2016
2016 Philly Beer Week draft @ Khyber Pass. Pours slightly hazy golden color, maybe a touch of orange. Small, thin off-white head that was gone quickly. Grassy and citrusy aroma, maybe some stone fruit too. Full body, lightly syrupy, with a touch of astringency to the finish. Flavors of peach and citrus with a bit of an earthy note.

PorterPounder (7417) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - SEP 3, 2016
Tallahassee, Fl - Beer Stop - 650 ml bottle. Thick, muddled medium orange pour with a thick snow white head, decent lacing. Aroma has some tangy lemon accents, a touch of yeast and some bubble gum. Full-bodied flavor with some candii sugar sweetness, some bubble gum, a dollop of yeast, just a hint of lemon tartness and some cake mix sweetness in the back end. Mouthfeel has a pleasantly thick essence to it. Good night cap after getting the hell out of Dodge after Hurricane Hermine.

jbruner (4114) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - AUG 6, 2016
UPDATED: AUG 6, 2016 Pours a hazy golden yellow on tap with fluffy white head that dissipates to leave moderate lace. Aroma of sweet candied sugar, big yeast Belgian esters, and a nice malty backbone. Taste follows, like cotton candied fruit beer, but surprisingly not too sweet. Either as it warms or maybe because of something I ate, but some smoky meat is coming out, interesting. Booze is well hidden, effervescent carbonation, really well done for the style.

mice (818) - FINLAND - JUL 22, 2016
Samea, hailakanoranssi olut vaahtoaa kohtalaisesti, mutta melko nopeasti häviävällä valkoisella vaahdolla. Tuoksu appelsiininen, viljainen, hieman hapan ja hiivainen. Maussa appelsiinia, viljaa ja hiivaa sekä mausteisuutta. Keskitäyteläinen suutuntuma, hyvin vähäisesti hiilihappoja. Ei tämä vaan millään pärjää belgitripeleille, vaikka yritystä onkin.

rondphoto (4100) - Lakeside Park, Kentucky, USA - MAY 20, 2016
bottle @ Party Source / Bellevue KY --- Aroma of malt and light bitter citrus. Hazy medium amber color, ivory head that drops to a full cover, sheets of lace. Taste is smooth toffee malt that moves through a lightly carbonated swallow to mostly semi-sweet yeast and biscuit. Slight bittering in the finish isn’t enough to offset an almost cloying sweet. This one comes close, but doesn’t deliver any balance. Too bad.

Psytron (1949) - Turku, FINLAND - FEB 26, 2016
Smell of yeast, citrus. Muddy yellow colour with beige head. Aroma of yeast, mango, some nuts, some citrus. Mostly sweet, mildly sour. Carbon is low but sharp. Medium oily texture. Too yeasty, as many other Tripels.

From draft : Aroma has slight spice and peat/smokiness. dry bread. Flavor is nice and fruity, and some of the peatyness comes through here as well. Nice belgian spicyness. Quite balanced in the finish. This was quite good.
