Poured from a bomber bottle into a Rochefort goblet. Looking at the label I now see that they recommend what looks like a tulip?
A- Clear golden, very transparent for a tripel. Very little head retention.
S- Wet hay, barn interior, cooked beets, little to no hops that I can tell, playdoh?? Odd.
T- Well what can I say? Grassy malt, lawn clippings, funk, slight sweetness but there's the beets again. Honey with mold on it or something. I'm not liking this very much. There's none of the qualities I've noticed in other Belgian-style ales. This is simply off-putting.
M- I'd appreciate the fact that a beer this clear lingers on the tongue more if it weren't for that damned beet flavor.
Well, I'm not a fan of New Belgium to begin with but I thought I'd give them another try since it was 3.49 for this 22oz bottle. Not impressed at all. I don't think I'll even be able to finish the bottle. I'm really confused since I know that a lot of people like them nowadays, so am I getting bad bottles or something? Truly awful. The rest of the bottle is either going down the drain or serving as the base for a marinade. I take that back, it's going down the drain.

Trippel pours a clear golden color with a nice long lasting lacing head. There is a a rich and spicy aroma, hints of coriander, lots of alcohol. The taste is very crisp, good noticeable amount of spices, hints of orange, good malt backbone. Nice flavors, a tad bit weak. Overall its not as rich as other trippels but has a very nice crisp fruity flavor.
