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.

cloudy, chunky, old schoolbus yellow color with dark, evil floaters galore..solid, but thin sheet of almost off-white suds...funky, sour, yeasty smell with added bacterial grape skin nastiness...big yeasty flavor profile with white grapes, yeasty bitterness, some sourness and astringent notes....mostly pretty damn yeasty though, yet lacking in the funky complexities that the aroma let on..

Loved the nose: big fruity aromas of oranges, grapes and yeast. Cloudy pale orange color and low tight foamy head. Big orange malt taste with yeast tones all over. Excellent Belgian triple from the U.S. Pretty smooth and sophisticated.

12oz Bottle marked 03SEP04. Poured a cloudy orange with a head that dissapeared quickly. Yeasty aroma that is citrusy and spicy. Nice. Has an outstanding body that is silky smooth and delicate. Flavor is classic Tripel which is fruity and malty, a bit sweet and a spicy finish. This is one of the top American brewed tripels in my opinion. Thanks Sham.

I really enjoyed this. As it got warmer it got better. Fruity flavors but mild fruity flavors. Malty. Good beer. Golden in color with a white head.

MaiBockAddict (1497) - Good Beer Bar Deprived, New Jersey, USA - DEC 27, 2003
Pours cloudy and golden with a white head. Some floaties. Fruity yet not fruity enough aroma. Malty flavor with hints of fruit and spice. Overall decent and enjoyable, but I thought Allagash Tripel reserve was more to style and a better beer.

Fine, I'll admit it: New Belgium can brew some good beers. So why don't they dump the crappy stuff (that sells) and concentrate on good beers? Best before Feb 27, 04, though with the alcohol content I'm willing to bet it would last longer. Pours a cloudy golden color with a respectable head that looked like sugar. Very nice lacing. Smells like banana, corriander, and apricots. Tastes much like that as well, with the flavors coming along in that order: Bananas first, and an apricot aftertaste. I've never noticed anything like that in another beer. Mouthfeel is quite full and crisp. Quite a bit of carbonation in this Drinkability is good. It's making a very nice night-cap considering it's nearly 3:30am and I'm just finishing a homework assignment...

(Bottle) Pours a hazy yellow color with a thick frothy white head. Has flavor of citrus and floral.

Bottle: pours a big white head that dissapated slowly leaving layers of lacing on glass. Very clear for being bottle conditioned. Light malty aroma. As it warms it becomes more complex, (mostly yeasty) although not as complex as the few other "Big Belgians" I've tried. I must say this is drinkable in that the alc is hidden well.
