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 Zeus’s 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.

Pours clear gold with a minimal head that dissipates quickly leaving little lacing. Aroma is light - fig and vanilla. Taste is slightly sweet with lightly bitter aftertaste. Surprisingly light in body and texture and a bit fizzy. I was really looking forward to trying this but find it a bit disappointing. New Belgium’s Dubbel is much better.

12-ounce bottle pours crystal clear golden yellow with a spritz of white head and lacing; moderate visible carbonation rising in glass. Aroma: honey, caramelized white sugar, lemon, floral, orange, bubble gum, barnyard. Flavor: malt-forward (candied sugar, honey) with banana, clove, candied citrus peels, white and black pepper. Mouthfeel: medium- to full-bodied, oily, creamy, yet with a dry, clean finish. Very tasty.

From Dec 2006 Poured from Growler a hazy medium gold witha largish head of foam that sharank fairly slowly leaving just a fine broken layer with plenty of lacing. The smell is all nice and yeasty and fruity with undertones of sweet malt. The taste is very fruity up front..dark fruit is hitting my taste buds very nicely. That's followed by a healthy yeast taste and a good clove and banana presence that builds on the complexity of this Trippel. It finishes fairly dry but I can still pull some malt sweetness out of it. Very good. I've been drinking the bottles for a long time and they never disappoint me but this fresh tap in a Growler really brings out the best in this brew. And all for under US$10 and that includes the Growler itself! Oh. and It would be remiss of me not to say that the 8.5%abv is hidden very well..just some warming once it's gone down. Bottom line: A very tasty Trippel that is very good in bottles but is even better on draft. I highly recommend it.

Bottle from Merchants. Aroma is banana, clove, tropical fruit, booze, slightly floral, some earthiness, decent. Appearance is golden, white head, unfiltered. Taste is clove, tropical fruit, banana, spicy, earthy, esters, boozy, decent. Mouthfeel is medium body, light crisp carbonation, clove and tropical fruit booze aftertaste. Overall, I've had worse.

Very nice trippel. A bit hoppy but really pleasant to drink. Only "complaint" would be a slight alcohol taste...but that is only if I was looking for a flaw.

An interesting beer, hoppy but not overly so. Notes of pepper and spices which makes sense as it is brewed with coriander. Probably not one I would buy but would enjoy it anytime I drank it ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Sampled at 2017 Dayton Alefest- a classic tripped. Creamy mouthfeel with bananas and grain and malty spices. ---Rated via Beer Buddy

Aromas of banana and apricot, taste of esters, clove, and dark candy sugar. Just ok the sweet side for my Tastes, but hits all the Belgian triple notes and will certainly scratch that itch. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

New Belgium Trippel: It tastes like buttermilk and banana-flavored schnapps with a teaspoon of caper juice.
