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.

Aroma dominated by Saaz hops. Color is an inviting golden yellow. Flavor is dominated by the hops with a citrus bite.

UPDATED: MAR 18, 2005 Re-rate 4/18/05 I still like this one, but it just seems like it had to have changed. Too sugary, less fruit, and simply not as compex. The last 2 6ers Ive bought, while good, are just not worthy of my original rate. I just love this one. Since I cant afford the Chimay Tripel on a regular basis, this is a good (and FRESH) sub. Little less sugary than the Chimay; a good thing.

Aurelius (5158) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - SEP 2, 2003
Yeasty, doughy, somewhat milky aroma. Golden brew, poofy head, decent label, light sediment. Good Belgian character, a little musty, dryish (moderate sweetness,) lightly bitter. Very good mouthfeel and trailing bitterness. Well done.

Big floral aroma with large pepper hints. A little bit of banana and grapefruit make their way into the beer's flavor profile. A real treat, to say the least.

Beautiful blond color with large white head. Earthy, yeast and citrus aromas. Awesome balance of yeast, fruit and spice flavors. Couldn't get enough of this one.

This is a really a high quality Belgian trippel and is extremely reasonable in price, especially at Trader Joe's. A very accessible, tasty beer. I would highly recommend this to those wanting to try a Belgian trippel on a budget. Nice blond color, plenty of body and a good Belgian flavor. Excellent!

jgb9348 (5923) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - AUG 16, 2003
Slightly hazy golden colour with orange highlights and a medium-sized head with very large bubbles. Smells of yeast, bananas and cloves. Coriander seed might be used as well, as the clean/fresh aroma is noticeable. Full-bodied; sweet taste full of great characteristics: bananas, cloves and honey are all very prominent. The alcohol is almost unnoticeable in the taste...which is a great factor! Aftertaste has great sweet characteristics such as caramel and fresh pineapple. Overall, a better than average Tripel, definately one of the best I've ever had.! It gives Ally Tripel Reserve a run for it's money! Pick one up if you've never had it and it's available! This bottle was good until: 12-june-2004, which probably means it was bottled one year prior. I bought this 12 ounce beer at Liqour Mart in Boulder, Colorado.
