COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our Trippel Belgian Style Ale (pronounced triple) opens with a bold blast of hops that slowly gives way to the fruity esters implied by our Belgian yeast strain. The Three Graces hand-painted on the label are Zeuss daughters Aglaia (splendor), Euphrosyne (mirth) and Thalia (good cheer). In the Belgian tradition of brewing singles, doubles and triples, Trippel is the strongest with the longest fermentation. Remarkably smooth and complex, our bottle-conditioned Trippel is spiced with a trace of coriander.

beervana (781) - Libertyville, Illinois, USA - APR 14, 2006
(03.25.06) 12 oz brown bottle purchased from Liquidsolutions.biz. 7.8% ABV. Best before September 22, 2006. Clear golden yellow with average white head. Good lacing. Average carbonation. Spicy clove aroma. Medium-to-full bodied that starts with light malt sweetness and fruity/spicy clove flavors. Finishes dry with light malt and hop bitterness fade. Well-balanced and flavorful, this is an excellent Belgium ale.

luckygirl (1223) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - APR 12, 2006
Sampled at 4th Boulder Strong Ale Fest. the beer pours a hazy, medium yellow-amber color with a very small, nearly nonexistent head. The aroma is lightly malty with notes of husky toasted grain/dog food; hoppy with trace notes of herbs; trace notes of banana and a moderate note of cooked corn. The flavor is moderately sweet with an average-length, lightly bitter, tangy finish with an unclean aftertaste. The body was light, the texture was watery and the carbonation was lively.

rdawson321 (145) - USA - APR 11, 2006
Pours with a huge fluffy head. Bright gold in color. Very floral. Malty and bready, with an almost wheat-like character. Malty, smooth finish despite lots of carbonation. Great example of the style, but not quite my thing.

OK Trippel. Pretty much what you imagine when you think of a Trippel, but nothing extraordinary. Exactly what you would expect but nothing more.

jercraigs (10302) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 25, 2006
Bottle from a forgotten trader. Sorry! Godlen yellow body with a nice fluffy white head is crisp and clear, I might have thought it was a pilsener had I not known otherwise! (3+) Sweet yesty aroma with notes of grany malt and alcohol, traces of odd fruit. Sweet flavour is cereal malt with pleasant overtones of spice and mild fruit. (6+) Medium to full bodied palate is pleasantly smooth. Quite enjoyable but failed to knock my socks off.

ryan (3186) - Beltsville, Maryland, USA - MAR 25, 2006
Murky, golden body with a big, frothy, white head. Lasting cover, nice lacing. The aroma is honey, golden raisins, bananas and apricots. The flavor is bready, raisins, apricots, grassy hops and cloves. Mouthfeel is soft and creamy with a long, slightly bitter and dry finish.

Dickinsonbeer (5074) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - MAR 12, 2006
Light blonde, relatively clear for the style, nice white head that fades slowly and leaves a good lace. Aroma is slightly yeasty, lemony, citrus, phenolic, spicy, peppery, and hints of safron, and cloves. Nice flavor profile, with lots of bready malts, cloves, spices, and a nice hoppy bitter finish. Body was a bit weak, but pretty smooth overall.

This is a good attempt by a US brew to create a Belgium style beer. NB Brewery has a few other Belgium style beers, but this is their best one.
