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.

Boesky (52) - Galesburg, Illinois, USA - JAN 19, 2006
Bottle, thanks to good buddy Joe in Colorado (Why cant we get NB fine beers here in Chicagoland?). A beautiful beer, golden in color and gently carbonated. Slightly sweet at first, with notes of honey and a soft mouthfeel. Finishes crisp and dry, with the Saaz hops adding just the right amount of spiciness. Dont even think of drinking this at anything colder than cellar temp. A great effort.

unibaren (157) - 8000 rhus C, DENMARK - JAN 11, 2006
(GABF2005, so kind of hard to judge with only a 1 ounze sampling) Bright, very smooth tasting. Limited spicyness and not very strong.

tiggmtl (4544) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 24, 2005
Fruity, sugary, sweet aroma with plenty of leafy, tobacco hop character. Clear golden body is topped by an initially large, fine bubbled white head that recedes to cover with some lacing. Some vegetal tones to the biscuity, grainy flavour that also features leafy hops and a very subdued fruity note that lingers pleasantly in the aftertaste. Pretty strongly hopped for a tripel. Medium body with lively carbonation that is gently prickly on the tongue. Tulip glass. Allowed to warm from fridge temperature. Bottle (BB21-Jul-06, Liquor Mart, Boulder, CO, Oct-05).

pwrhouse (4) - Spokane, Washington, USA - DEC 22, 2005 does not count
A great beer, very similar to a Belgian white beer. Very dry compared to most beers, but very smooth as well. One of my favorites.

NNCRed (17) - Idaho, USA - DEC 13, 2005
12 oz bottle. Golden color, small white head, sparkling with carbonation. Decent flavor with some nice spices, tingly feel on the palate. Overall a tasty beer, not overpowering by any means.

RooftopRogue (423) - Champaign, Illinois, USA - DEC 11, 2005
An aroma infusion consisting of yeast and hops. It is maize in color with a good head and good lacing. A hearty taste of yeast, wheat, and hops smoothly roll over the tongue.

presario (4916) - Stampede City, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 11, 2005
12oz bottle with a best bfore date of March 2002. Pours the colour of apple juuice at the start but blends towards a darker orange with the yeast. Minimal head. Aroma is a muted gentle sugar and yeast. Thick body with a creamy mouth feel. Flavour starts muted for the style but subtle flavours grow on you. A quarter of the way through the bottle and a nice spice is noticed. Nice but lacking a certain zest and flavour for style.
