COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
21°P, 35 IBU.
Ingredients: Malted barley, wheat, malted wheat, sugar, hops, yeast and local Grimstad water. It is very difficult to brew a complex and balanced Belgian-style tripel ale, but we have made an attempt at brewing one anyway! Our respect and admiration for those who master the skill and art of brewing excellent ale of this style is limitless. Tripels often pair with cheese, seafood and fresh vegetables.

En tripel er et fruktig og sterkt ol med en lett og elegant kropp. Vi i Nøgne Ø liker å gjøre ting på vår egen måte. <<Hvordan lage en sinatursmak i en tripel?>>, spurte vi oss selv på ett tidspunkt. Vi konkluderte med at torvrøkt malt av skotsk opprinnelse var svaret.

Metalchopz (3447) - Cantley, Quebec, - JAN 27, 2013
Glad to see a Tripel from this brewery (always nice to see a none-Belgian brewer trying this great style). Pours a hazy golden colour with an amber hue, and a white cap that gives out creamy lace. Aromas of malted wheat (and Barley) with notes of fruits and very mild burnt wood (smokey). The smokiness delivers in the taste as well with peachy wheat and spices in the background. There is a grainy flavour which is weird. Nice brew, but different for a Tripel with the smoke factor (maybe a plus for Islay whiskey drinkers).

I picked up this bottle from Amstein the last year. I decided to drink this one the last friday with my wife at home. In my point of view, it is an average tripel, more on the German style than the Belgian school. Best before was at november 2016, the color is a beautiful orange/yellow and troubled body, white foam, normal carbonation. The taste is not so far away of a weizen bock, sweet, malty, a bit bready, strong notes of apricot, I could say fruity, some hop but it is not so bitter, better during the last sips taking more aromas and you have some yeast.

AleRider78 (1386) - Winchester, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 17, 2017
Pours a huge frothy off-white head that sticks around for awhile. Has a hazy golden appearance. Nice dirty lacing. Aromas of wheats and grains, light malts, slightly toasty. Flavours are quite strong. Has a sort of smokey like taste, burnt roasted malts. Some citrus hops, hints of pineapple and extremely light banana notes. Very bitter in the finish with mouthfeel and aftertaste. A little off putting with aftertaste. A bit of alcohol comes through, just enough and not offensive. Really good.

skortila (5967) - Baarn, NETHERLANDS - MAY 20, 2017
Bottled. 25cl sample. The aroma has some peat, juniper, citrus, cloves. Bit hazy, golden coloured beer with a medium, white head. The taste is light-moderate bitter, spicy, bit smoked, citric. Nice refreshing and fairly dry.

DwarfeD (3540) - Amersfoort, NETHERLANDS - APR 6, 2017
50cl bottle at home. Clear golden with a medium white soapy head. Medium body with moderate carbonation. Nice bitter and sweet tones. Smoke, tangerine, spices, caramel, citrus and some spices. Nice.

Panzuriel (2324) - Westerville, Ohio, USA - FEB 18, 2017
Appearance: Bright golden. hazy. Firm head of fluffy white bubbles. Nose: Sweet roasted malts. Caramel. Touches of wheat, spice and bananas. Taste: Sweeter and strongly boozy at first sip with elements of darker stone fruits, spice and banana esters Body: thinner and lively Parting thoughts: A fantastic Tripel. I’ve been on quite a tripel tear, recently. either they or I have had a renaissance

MrHangover (4693) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - FEB 13, 2017
Bottle. Pours a slightly hazy golden amber beer with a minimal amount of quickly disappearing white head on top. Aroma is very malty and sugary, wheaty notes, bready touches and a vague hint of banana in there, like a strong weizen. Flavor is sweet and rather boozy, strong alcoholic presence in the beer, loads of malts in there, sugary notes, white fruits and again a hint of banana. Soft and sticky moutfheel, almost no carbonation present. Still nice though, yet strong.

3.6
minutemat (5807) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - JAN 16, 2017
500ml bottle from Oslo Airport duty free. Drunk at home. Pours a misty gold, white head. Aroma has some nice sweet tripel yeast notes. Taste is creamy with soft a tripel sweetness and very subtle peat notes. Quite balanced and doesn’t taste 9% in the slightest. Bit too creamy for my tastes though.

3.9
Evilkniamhel (1025) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JAN 15, 2017
From bottle. Pours cloudy gold. Aromas of cloves, esters, banana, Orange. Taste is boozy, Madeira cake, sharp tropical fruit, smokey.
