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.

UPDATED: FEB 23, 2014 Pours gold with white head.some lacing. Head quickly dissipats to a thin film. Aroma has a note of biscuit, warming alcohol, egg, sharp maltiness, resembles aroma of a high gravity lager. Flavor is alcohol warmth, fruity esters, funky yeast, and toasted buscuity malt. Flavor is like that of a really clean high gravity lager. Medium, slick, oily body. Decent beer. Not much different than a steel reserve except the toasted note in the flavor. Tasty.

UPDATED: DEC 5, 2017 For it being a 8.5 ABV it goes down very smooth, best Belgium style I’ve had

UPDATED: NOV 19, 2017 Draught at Monk’s Kettle. Amber color, white head. Bitter taste with citrus, hops, toast, a bit of ripe fruits and earthy notes. Bitter finish with citrus, hops, earthy notes, toast and a bit of ripe fruits. Okay tripel.

Pours up clear gold in color with a white head and nice lacing. Spicy Belgian yeast aroma. Taste is Belgian with candied fruit like apricot and some ripe berries. Some weird flavors here, like a rubber plant. A little boozy. Not horrible but there are a lot better tripples out there.

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
