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.

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).

minutemat (4768) - Shrewsbury, 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.

500 ml bottle from the Party Source from notes. Pours a slightly hazy orange amber color with a small off white head. The aroma and flavor have sweet malts, lightly toasted malts, ripe fruits, and a hint of spice, ok example of the style.

Excellent tripple with an marzipan like aroma, delicate offwhite head which is rather short lived as you would expect with this alcohol content. Very good mouth feel. I like the alcohol on the nose, as well as the sweet after taste even though I know it might not be everybody’s cup of tea. Carbonation is probably in the lower end of the range for the style which again suits me.

PhillyCraft (6450) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 11, 2016
BB backlog, Bottle in 2011 with PAt. Pours a hazy yellow color with medium sized white head. Tiny bubbles and nice lacing. Smell is apples, banana, belgian yeast, hops, and sweet malt. Flavor most of the same with some toasty malt, and dark fruits Carbonation was medium and so was the body.

BillWyce (1045) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 14, 2016
2016 Philly Beer Week draft @ Khyber Pass. Pours slightly hazy golden color, maybe a touch of orange. Small, thin off-white head that was gone quickly. Grassy and citrusy aroma, maybe some stone fruit too. Full body, lightly syrupy, with a touch of astringency to the finish. Flavors of peach and citrus with a bit of an earthy note.

PorterPounder (7612) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - SEP 3, 2016
Tallahassee, Fl - Beer Stop - 650 ml bottle. Thick, muddled medium orange pour with a thick snow white head, decent lacing. Aroma has some tangy lemon accents, a touch of yeast and some bubble gum. Full-bodied flavor with some candii sugar sweetness, some bubble gum, a dollop of yeast, just a hint of lemon tartness and some cake mix sweetness in the back end. Mouthfeel has a pleasantly thick essence to it. Good night cap after getting the hell out of Dodge after Hurricane Hermine.

Light hazy golden colour with white head. Aroma is sweet malt and fruity. Taste sweet fruit and easy drinking.

jbruner (4359) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - AUG 6, 2016
UPDATED: AUG 6, 2016 Pours a hazy golden yellow on tap with fluffy white head that dissipates to leave moderate lace. Aroma of sweet candied sugar, big yeast Belgian esters, and a nice malty backbone. Taste follows, like cotton candied fruit beer, but surprisingly not too sweet. Either as it warms or maybe because of something I ate, but some smoky meat is coming out, interesting. Booze is well hidden, effervescent carbonation, really well done for the style.

mice (861) - FINLAND - JUL 22, 2016
Samea, hailakanoranssi olut vaahtoaa kohtalaisesti, mutta melko nopeasti häviävällä valkoisella vaahdolla. Tuoksu appelsiininen, viljainen, hieman hapan ja hiivainen. Maussa appelsiinia, viljaa ja hiivaa sekä mausteisuutta. Keskitäyteläinen suutuntuma, hyvin vähäisesti hiilihappoja. Ei tämä vaan millään pärjää belgitripeleille, vaikka yritystä onkin.
