12 oz. bottle, with enjoy by date of January 11, 2015 printed on the label. A new beer to me from New Belgium, acquired as part of the spring folly pack. Not a style I am too familiar with, but I am going in with an open mind.

Poured into a Duvel tulip glass.

A - Pours a nice bright golden amber yellow colored body with lots of bubbles rushing up from the etching at the bottom of the glass. Two fingers of thick frothy white head that falls to about a finger. Good fat lacing abound. Looks nice.

S - Smell initially reminds me of a Berliner Weisse beer almost - sour / cheesy / pungent. Yeasty, grainy, & wheaty. The floral coriander / bubblegum aromas are apparent, but they are much more in the background than I would have imagined. Some honeyed bready malt is also noticeable.

T - Taste is similar to the nose - lightly peppery, yeast-derived fruitiness, bubblegum malt, honeyed bread malts, grainy / wheaty, and some lemon & banana. No alcohol is detectable.

M - Feel is crisp, smooth, and clean. Light-bodied with nice carbonation.

Overall, a nice rendition of the style by New Belgium, with a moderate and unnoticeable 7.80%. An approachable take on the style, to be sure, and it has me curious to explore more.

New Belgium Trippel ---4/5.

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.
