A bit on the boozy side, but to be expected for a Belgian of such high abv. nice flavor otherwise and not too dry either. overall its pretty good JFGrind (2071) - Glenside, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 26, 2016
Golden, full bodied Trippel, bitterness and Belgian yeast cohabitate agreeably in the chalice. Surprising choice for my brother to serve at a Christmas gathering...I’m not complaining. ghostbeer (248) - Nebraska, USA - DEC 7, 2016
This had lots of coriander for me...too much in my opinion. It was basically all I noticed and was off-putting for my taste. It is not something that I necessarily mind, but it needs to be more well balanced. I might try it again, but only if I am not paying for it. RobertDale (6856) - Lansing, Kansas, USA - NOV 15, 2016
Sample at Strong Ale Fest 2016. Comes dark gold with a nice white head. Aroma of spice, fruit, yeast, and malt. Taste is similar. Well made. Bulk_Carrier (6065) - Vermont, USA - NOV 14, 2016
Poured into a chalice, the appearance was a semi-hazy burnt yellow to orange color with a thick finger’s worth of white foamy head that dissipated somewhat evenly. Messy lace.
The aroma had some citrusy hops playing with some floral hops. And then some banana esters, iced apples, Belgian sugars and spices come in to blend nicely.
The flavor leans somewhat sweet with a nice effort of the Belgian spice to gracefully hit underneath. Sly sweet then subtle floral and spicy aftertaste with a quick dry semi-sweet finish.
On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a fair sessionability almost sipping quality about it. Medium carbonation. Throaty Belgian-esque sort of burn but due to the spice and not ABV related.
Overall, mostly a pretty good tripel by an American brewer. I would have again.

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. hershiser2 (3667) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - OCT 22, 2016
$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. Can’t say this is anything special. johnnymusky (1004) - Minnesota, USA - OCT 18, 2016
Poured from bottle....golden with big white head...nose is spice and belgian funk...mouth follows nose...fruity...yeast is light...not bad... rosenbergh (11809) - Tampere, FINLAND - OCT 6, 2016
12 oz bottle. BB 15/Jan/17. (Chambers Liquor) Aurora, CO.kenter2000 (75) - , Wisconsin, USA - AUG 26, 2016
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.
Wasn’t 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.
