750ml served in a Tripel Karmeliet tulip.
Brewed in 2012

A - Pours a turbid murky brown with 3 fingers of white head. Darker than the typical Tripel. Very good retention with plenty of sticky lacing.

S - Fruity yeast esters fill the glass, candied pears, apples, melon, hints of peppery citrus, nutmeg, caramelized taffy, coriander, wheat malt, grassy and floral hops, sugar alcohols.

T - Sweet candied pears upfront, burnt taffy, sweet Belgian candi, it has pretty good spice kick, toasted rye bread, earthy but sharp bite, alcohol is very present but works as usual with the style. Caramel starts seeping through as it warms. The finish begins with a slow building dryness leading into grassy floral hops, alcohol, and spice.

M - Moderate creamy carbonation, heavy side of medium, spicy and warming alcohol.

Darker than most Tripels but a beautiful white head was adamant about leaving it’s marks around the sides of the glass. Aroma was spot on Tripel. Taste was sweet, spicy, warming, and dry, with an admirable alcohol heat. Good layering going on. An impressive American Tripel. One of the best I’ve had brewed in the states. Not sure why they spelled it Trippel but I’m sure there is a funny inside story behind it. Definitely worth another visit. I like where this brewery is going.

750 ml corked bottle. A loud pop when uncorking this one! The pour is a dirty amber-gold color with a thick lasting head. Sheets of lacing cling to the sides of the glass when drinking. Apple, hay, yeast, and a little caramel make the aroma. This tastes like a yeasty loaf of bread, with apples and pear for the fruit element, and an underlying herbal spiciness. A little alcohol does creep in there but this comes across as light for the style. It actually tastes more like a Belgian Strong than Trippel but that’s probably because of the apple-like esters instead of the more traditional banana within this style. This isn’t great but is still pretty solid stuff.

Tap....gold with a white head. Nose is musk, spice, dried fruit, light alcohol, and sweet. Smooth palate, sweet malts, followed by spice, musk, lightly bitter, and fruity.

From the bottle, it’s dark honey-orange, slightly hazy, with a generous portion of tan, orange hued foam, slowly dissipating. Bright aromas of citrus, grass, biscuit and alcohol. It’s got some caramel and sweet roll sweetness, with some sharp hop bitterness and light lemony notes. It’s sort of champagne-y with crisp carbonation. The mouthfeel holds up very well with warming. Maybe a little brighter than, say, Duvel, but it’s still a nice, yeasty Trippel. Yummers!
