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 Zeusís 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.

Tap at New Belgium Meet the Brewer event at Gambrinus. Pours a deep gold with a pillowy foamy head that lingers. Cinnamon, nutmeg and clove on the nose. Light, flaming banana-like esters. Soft mouthfeel, with average carbonation. A little too much spice, but still an enjoyable tripel. Sweet on the palate with a touch of dry pepper on the finish.

$1.99 bottle from World Market. Pours golden with a small white head. Aroma of yeasty bubblegum, spices, and grass. Flavor is lightly fruity, along with banana, clove, and glue. Canít say this is anything special.

Clear golden color with a mid-size foamy white head. Yeast, yeasty bitterness, malt and some spices in the aroma. The flavor is bitterness, yeast, spices, some alcohol and malt. Strong flavor.

Wasnít able to communicate with the winds. I had hoped to ask them when was the best time of year to drink a New Belgium Trippel. I enjoy drinking beer when weather corresponds to taste but having not drank a belgian style beer in sometime I lost track of my knowledge of its flavors and therefore could not make an informed decision. So I decided to gamble, letting the chips fall where they may, and picked an ordinary summer evening to attempt this out of the ordinary beer. To my relief, the beer is good and works well in these weather conditions.

* Abv 8.5. Balance of yeast, spice, malts. Well balanced with caramel malt. Earthy hops shining on the finish. Yes, a bit watery yet the hops add to a nice finish. Alcohol hidden. Typical American style triple yet satisfying. Enjoyable at the price and availability.

Pours a light hazy yellow with whit head. Has a strong citrus hop and yeast aroma. A sweet citrus taste with some pine but fairly watered down. A lingering dry hop and yeast aftertaste.

MissAnthropic (68) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - JUL 21, 2016
Growler. Thin foam and clear pale gold. Mildly yeasty nose, hints of pepper. A light yeast with subtle bitters and a clean finish. Hides the alcohol well but I canít help feel it could be better.

Can shared at home. Thanks Ron S from New Belgium/ WV. Clear gold. Orange peel, coriander, make up powder, a little peach in the nose. Bitter, a little yeasty, spicy. Full body, delicately fizzy, bitter, yeasty finish. Nice.

Tad dry for a tripel, decent bittering hops without a punch. Not a ton of Belgian-y yeast. Itís certainly fine, and Iím not angry at my six pack purchase, but Iím not going to go out of my way to get this again.
