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. Aggiebob (1103) - Huntsville, Alabama, USA - JUN 27, 2016
Bottle. Gold on color with a white head and lacing. Spicy Belgian yeast with candied fruit - appricott and berries. A liitle boozy. blipp (9172) - La Mesa, California, USA - JUN 25, 2016
Bottle. Pours gold, with a white head. Spicy yeast, some floral and fruity, mild peach, quick finish. Not bad. badhack (554) - San Francisco, California, USA - MAY 26, 2016
Ripe fruit, possibly banana, toasted and dark malt. Brown red with plenty of foamy head. Moderate carbonation and mouthfeel. Overall I found this a good example if the style but too hoppy for my preference. weihenweizen (3751) - Charleston Area, West Virginia, USA - APR 13, 2016
Refrigerated brown bomber poured into a snifter. Clear golden with no lacing, medium body, low carbonation, and very little lacing. Taste is fruity malt and some alcohol.

New Belgium Tripel 7.8%
A beautiful bright clear gold with a foamy white head. The aroma is vineous, plum, figs, a bit tart but a very nice example of the style. Medium to full mouthfeel with a dry finish. The taste is crackery pale malts and big luscious candied fruits, figs, plums, raisins and while it has some boozy heat it is quite well balanced.
I like it, itís a good example of a Belgian Style Trippel, but being in Japan we can get Belgian original versions for less. So if I was in the US Iíd go for this in a heartbeat but being in Japan I think Iíd get an belgian original instead. Really really nice though. beer_rookie (554) - Arkansas, USA - APR 1, 2016
Pours a light golden color. About two finger head. Head is white and thin. Okay retention and okay lacing. Has white sediment floating around in it.Cajun (532) - Lafayette, Louisiana, USA - MAR 27, 2016
Aroma is banana and coriander. Also tropical fruity.
Taste is banana sand coriander. Also, true to style, tastes sour. Sweet, malty, Smells yeasty, but canít taste it.
Mouthfeel is medium full body. High ABV, canít taste it.
Overall, itís good. I would recommend it for the style. Iím not a fan of the style. But itís good. I donít know why I bought it, but itís decent enough.
12oz bottle - Poured a deep amber with creamy white head. Nice smell of malted grains, bread, and spices. Flavors of spice, raisins, over-ripened fruit, and a woody herb. Alcohol is somewhat detected along with a bitter finish, but itís not overpowering. Gespuccian (141) - Wisconsin, USA - MAR 19, 2016
Pours a golden yellow with white head. Nose is sweet, banana, cloves. Taste is of classic Belgian yeast, and some sweet banana thatís tempered by slightly bitter hops. Finish is slightly sweet, slighty bitter, and a touch dry. A good American take on the trippel. dambor (680) - Berlin, GERMANY - MAR 15, 2016
Pours golden with medium head. Aroma: typical Belgian yeast, citrus, biscuit. Taste: citrus, malt, biscuits, esthers, bread. Palate is esthery, fruity and hoppy. Good.
