COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Belgian ales are famous for their complex flavor, incorporating fruity esters, phenols, and higher alcohols. Our Trippel is a strong pale beer brewed with Belgian candi sugar and fermented with a special strain of yeast. Served in an eleven-ounce snifter.

Draft at the Princeton Brewpub. Hazy orange brew, thick white head. Classic tripel, rich in flavor, full bodied, a bit sweet and boozy - fresh. Lots of fruit - pears and apricots? Missing the earthy, musty, and yeasty elements found in some (bottled?) tripels.

FlacoAlto (3800) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - MAY 25, 2005
Pours a lightly hazy, amber-orange color and is topped by a thin wisp of a head. The carbonation is mid to low in level. The aroma is fairly non-descript, but has notes of sweet grain, some estery notes, and a certain earthy quality. The taste is soft and fruity up front with notes of orange, apple, and perhaps some pear. The taste then moves to a herbal note that is accented by some spritzy notes of carbonation. The beer then finishes off with some spicy notes of pepper and ginger. I definitely like the various flavor components that make up this beer, though I think that if this was bottle conditioned it would be just that much better. This beer has that sort of earthy, estery, almost coriander like, note that makes me think that they used a yeast strain derived from Chimay. Thank you Zathrus13 for the opportunity to try this beer.

tap at Princeton Orangey in color. Get a lot of sugar/fruit aromas. Also fruity and sugary in flavor, a bit of spice too. Very good

On tap, in Princeton. Pours orange/amber, with a small head. Aromas are sweet fruit, butterscotch, and candi sugar. Flavor is much like the aroma, fruit, butterscotch, and a little pepper. This is a nice effort, and pretty much a textbook tripel.

Sampled in Princeton. Good Tripel. Good amber pour with a thick white head. Aroma was very strong with various fruits, mainly orange and butterscotch. A bit of bubble gum came into the flavor.

Eyedrinkale (3213) - Astoria, New York, USA - MAY 14, 2004
Cloudy light orange color with a nice sized thick creamy head (didn’t last long). Strong, sweet orange taste with hints of butterscotch. Nice pepper taste also with a sticky finish.

MaiBockAddict (1497) - Good Beer Bar Deprived, New Jersey, USA - MAY 13, 2004
On tap at Andy’s. Tulip. Cloudy yellow with a smallish white head. Slightly phenoloic bubblegummy aroma, with hints of candi sugar and malt. Malty flavor with a smooth alcohol bite. Some phenolics properties here as well. Almost like drinking a shot. I think it could be better, but worth at least a try....

A very good Trippel. Very smooth drinking beer. A nicely rounded flavor complete with a variety of fruits and alcohol. Fruitiness strengthens as it warms. Wow

Tom at Triumph has outdone himself! This is an outstanding Tripel. Bubblegum nose, nectar of the gods flavor. Carbonation is light, but just enough to release the complexity of it. Sweet, but not cloying. Superb, please keep this as a year round offering!!!!!
