I don’t have a lot of good things to say about New Belgium. For the most part, their beers to me fall short of the mark, poor imitations of the styles they pursue. But this tripel and their dubbel are pretty good. It ends a little too sweet for my taste, but as a big fan of this style, I have to say that it is overall a good example.
UPDATED: JUL 26, 2017 It’s good, it’s very pleasant, it’s got nice yeasts, nice malts. It is very much a trippel, but it’s not very complex, although drinkable. I like it, but I’m not thrilled. MaBeer1972 (2060) - Reno, Nevada, USA - JUL 22, 2017
Six pack of bottles. Poured into a snifter. A deep golden color with a frothy off-white head and some lacing on the glass. Rich yeasty-fruit aroma with spice and white raisin notes. Heavy body. Earthy spice bitterness on the finish. ManVsBeer (10476) - Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JUN 27, 2017
Bottle from Whole Foods, Wilmington, Cookeville. Golden with a thin head. Well styled Belgian ale with a clear strength to it. Its nose has a stated bubble-gum pale malt sweetness in its nose and taste. thedm (6186) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - MAY 28, 2017
This bottled brew from a bottle shop was served at a cool temperature and poured a medium sized head of foamy fine to medium sized white colored bubbles that were and left behind semi-transparent light yellow orange colored body and a thick foamy lacing. The weak aroma was musty. The mouth feel was weakly tingly at the start mediumly tingly at the finish with a medium candy aftertaste. The ok flavor contained notes of mild hops candy and malt. A decent one that I would consider drinking again. MavDunk (104) - - MAY 14, 2017
Pours golden and not quite clear. Head is thin, milky white. Aroma of biscuits and ripe fruit. Taste has some light hops early with caramel and ripe fruit. Slight alcohol taste as you might expect with 8.5 % ABV. Not quite as enjoyable as the dubbel.

From Chris’ on the corner. Malty, yeasty, fruity yeasty, sweet beer. Nice but maybe not crisp enough. Serving: Bottle DavidWoodruff (624) - Windsor, California, USA - MAR 31, 2017
Golden with a thin white head. Fruity esters with candy, honey notes. Malty sweet up front but drier in the finish. Perfect amount of hop bitterness to off set the malty sweetness. Alcohol level seems appropriate to style. Enjoyable. KevinReddirt (167) - Midland, Texas, USA - FEB 26, 2017
New Belgium is one of my most appreciated breweries and I always like to review one of their beers. I have not had Trippel for a long time but now it is time. The 12 oz. dark brown bottle pours a light golden liquid giving a thin whitish head. The nose is spice. A taste delivers more of that spiciness, clove and coriander perhaps, fruitiness leaning towards mango and a bit of lemon. A slight bitterness lasts all the way through. No hint to me of the alcohol. Nice but not one of my favorites from the brewer. StoutBeerReviews (153) - Kenosha, Wisconsin, USA - FEB 15, 2017
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 (2047) - 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.
