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.

goldenw ith large white head, attractive triple. nose with a touch of esters, but not very fragrant. low bitterness before the esters take hold, though not overstated. the alcohol is also well muted, though the beer in general is understated and not a great example

Bottle@ Porgu, Tallinn. 26.11.2016. Batch # 1317. Unclear orange/amber,  thin white head.  Orange peel,  yeast,  mild tartness,  hint of smoke. Flavor has peat,  yeast,  sweet oranges.  Long fruity finish.  Tad too sweet for me,  but an interesting combination.

the aroma is malty and fruity with some hints of buckwheat... the taste is malty with shades of dry wine, herbs, spices and some garden berries... aftertaste is dry, bitter and spicy...

erickok (4017) - Tours (and Paris), FRANCE - JAN 30, 2015
Spot on looks for the style. Layered malt bill, both caramel and pale plus some toast. Very balanced. Added some classic hops as works just really well. Spiced but in modération, as it should. Taste is on the bitter side for the style, but that lifts it up to be a bit more interesting. Great example from a style that the Belgian already perfected long ago, and then some. This beer therefore wasn’t exactly needed, but is great nonetheless. (50cl bottle from Saveur Bière)
