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.

Uhlen (251) - Trondheim, - JAN 16, 2013
Cloudy golden pour with little head. Aroma of candy sugar and yeast, with some sour notes. Sweet in taste aswell, with apples, brown sugar and some wheat.

rumore (807) - Rimini, ITALY - DEC 3, 2017
50cl bottle from AbeerVinum, Rimini, Italy. Pours hazy gold with limited white foam, very fine. Aroma is spiced, orange peel and fruity. Body is slightly dense with moderate carbonation. Taste is fairly high in sweetness, but balanced with its spiced feeling. Finish is relatively long and sweet.

sinte (598) - Udine, ITALY - NOV 12, 2017
Bottle 0.5L.
Slightly hazy, deep golden to amber body with a small, frothy, white head, mostly lasting with some lacing.
Moderate malty (caramel) and light yeasty aroma with note of fruits (peach, maybe) and spices.
Moderate sweet and light-to-moderate bitter flavour with light sourness; long sweet and slightly acidic finish.
Medium body with oily texture; soft carbonation.

Blastomorpha (132) - - OCT 31, 2017
Pours like a typical belgian tripel, amber with a white head.
Subtle smoky and hoppy notes are mixed in a light malty aroma. The smokiness becomes more and more evident as the beer warms.
Taste is quite sweet but rounded by a nice tart and bitter finish. Spicy too.
Medium bodied and not very fizzy, very pleasant to sip. Alcohol very well hidden.
Nice experiment, a complex beer definitely, but very well balanced.

artemb (1220) - Chisinau, MOLDOVA - OCT 18, 2017
Cloudy golden, opaque, white head with average retention.

Aroma: bananas, black pepper, some smoky notes.
Taste: sweet with spicy bitterness.
Flavour: ripe apricotes, some sweet alcohol notes, spicy phenols.
Boozy and spicy warming finish.

This is definitely not a classical tripel, but a decent Belgian-style strong ale.

Very good.

caribou43 (1214) - Lausanne/Sevilla/Lima, SWITZERLAND - SEP 17, 2017
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.

GuideDogSaint (1776) - Xiamen, CHINA - SEP 10, 2017
500ml bottle. Pours clear golden with a thin white head. Aroma of malt with Belgian style yeast. Very sweet taste and finish.

GeorgePratt (83) - Stockport, Cheshire, ENGLAND - AUG 1, 2017
UPDATED: AUG 1, 2017 Pours a cloudy orange with a small white head. Aroma of cheese (?), orange peel and hops. Taste of bitter cheese (?) and zest. Another great beer from Nøgne ø.

AleRider78 (1471) - 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.
