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).

Bottle @ Vini Mundi, Nice. Pale amber-orange with a small carbonation and very little head. There’s some citrus orange fruit although the strength of the ale is dominant.

BOTTLE 50CL from Cunningham. Look: hazy golden with an unexpectedly humble head. Aroma: blond stone-fruit with a healthy dose of higher alcohols. Taste: fruit, moderate sweetness, quite alcoholic. A bit disappointing.

Clear, pale pour with a thin white head. Bready, spicy aroma, yeasty. Taste is sweet, bready, some banana, some spice, slightly bitter finish and a little boozy warmth.

DrSilverworm (6478) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - AUG 6, 2014
500ml bottle, from Dutch’s. Shared with abistany. Best by portion of the label is blank, but I know it’s been in our cooler for at least a year now. Mostly hazy golden orange color. Many fine particles suspended in the body. Thin off-white ring of head. Some loose dots of lace. Medium to bigger body. Smooth, kind of soft, lighter carbonation. More dry finish. Light bready malt, belgian yeast, moderate spice, some light banana and mild fruity esters. Moderate bitter taste, light to moderate sweet, a light alcohol warmth that isn’t bothersome at all, pretty nice. Pretty nice enjoyable tripel. My sister particularly enjoyed it.

elbernays (512) - Dublin, IRELAND - JUL 12, 2014
500ml bottle from drinkstore. Pours murky orange with white head that disappears. Poor appearance. Nose is banana, clove, bread, yeast, orange. Flavour is sweet bread, vanilla, banana. Alcohol hints in finish. Body is too light for a triplel. Needs a lot more oomph and luxury. Not great.
