Delaware

3.65/5  rDev -3.9%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

P: 12oz bottle into a tulip glass.

A: Pours a golden color with a nearly two finger white head. The head dies down rather quickly but leaves behind some solid lacing. Lacing streaks down the glass as you drink the beer.

S: Distinct Belgian yeast with some spicy notes. A little black peppercorn and coriander, some tiny peeks of fresh herbs and flowers. I pick up more and more clove as the beer warms.

T: Slightly sweet but very crisp, the sweetness lingers after each sip. Very malty, some of the aromas are present in the taste but others are hard to find. The spiciness is there but the coriander and floral aromas are lost.

M: Lighter body with medium carbonation.

O: A nice tripel overall but not one of the best available. It hits on most of the flavors and aromas you'd expect from the style but doesn't get them on all on the right level. New Belgium is new to Delaware and I'm looking forward to trying more of what they have to offer. An enjoyable beer but the memories will quickly fade.

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

A: poured into a snifter to a pale orange that's almost yellow topped by a small white head that is quick to fade
S: smells of corriander and fruity esters
T: taste is spicy yeast, corriander, fruity esters, some honey sweetness and cracker malt flavor. swallow is a whirlwind of flavors with more fruity esters, spices, slight alcohol, and pale malt
M: this beer sits at the lighter side of medium with abundant and prickly carbonation and a drying finish
O: New Belgium has always done pretty well with the belgian styles and this beer is no exception. this beer has great flavors and solid balance

Coriander and spices in the smell and taste. Good color. Clear and perfect golden clear. Not much of a fan of trippels yet. Reminds me again of ciders or champagne , dry after taste.No alcohol taste what so ever, which is good. almost has a sticky mouth feel. after a couple sips now I get an alcohol warming sensation. Nothing really Popping out for me though. This beer would be good at a campfire or fireside , sharing it with somebody, maybe your dog or who ever.
