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. Cloudy golden beer with a strong head. The aroma is lightly spiced and mulled, and the flavour is bitter with a spiced and winey feel. Overall a nice Belgian style beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pullo @ Alko. Kaatuu tulppaaniin kullankeltaisena ja sameana, noin 1,5 sormen paksuisella vaahdolla. Tuoksussa on vahvimpana mausteista hiivaisuutta ja sitruunaista hedelmää. Heikommin löytyy vielä hieman savuista maltaisuutta, joka muistuttaa savuoluissa olevaa kinkkuisuutta. Kun sen huomaa, se häiritsee enemmän. Maussa vahva mausteinen hiivaisuus hallitsee, sitruksisuus työntyy keskivaiheilla mukaan, alkoholimaisuuskin lyö oman leimansa joukkoon, mutta jälleen sama savuisuus ja jopa turpeisuus työntyy mukaan makuun ja se ei sovi ollenkaan mukaan. Suutuntuma on melko täyteläinen, alkoholi tuntuu sopivasti, humalointi ja hiilihapot nipistelevät kielellä. Savumaltaat + tripel = huono yhdistelmä.

Rating #1266 - 03.10.2014 - First bottle opened in my new condo. Pour is pretty standard, hazy golden orange with a bubbly white head. Aroma is almost tropical,getting more mango tangerine type citrus sweetness. Mouthfeel is crisp, medium-heavy alcohol character, medium carbonation. Taste is crisp but a bit of a mess for a tripel. Get a odd smoky overtone that really overarches the yeast character, present on the palate as well, but just a little all over the place for me
