This one poured a fizzy pale amber that was crystal clear as the yeast meddled in. A large foamy/fluffy head dissipated to a sticky film.

The nose was nice and strong, always pleasant and complex. Pear, coriander, clove, candy shell, peaches and a bit of other citrus hoppy flavors sat on semi-sweet doughy biscuity malt.

The alcohol was more noticeable in the taste however it was masked with several flavors. Fruity flavors dominated, pear, banana partnered with spices of coriander, clove. The sweetness was never too much and it was always welcome. A dry hoppyness with the belgian yeast and sweet spices dominated the finish.

The body was light but full and fluffy. The yeast was evident in the feel, the carbonation was spot one and the finish semi-dry, clean and complex.

Good drinkable tripel, flavorful, easy to find and pleasant to the last drop.

This is one of my go-to beers here at the house. Nice fruity aroma, taste of coriander and spice, beautiful golden color. Great finish. Good with all kinds of food. Highly recommended for those who'd like to go beyond Fat Tire but aren't ready to try the saison offerings from NB.

Served in a Gale Sayers shaker pint glass.

It's taken me way the hell too long to try this little guy... It pours a clear golden straw topped by a little over a finger of white foam. The nose comprises banana, clove, wheat, coriander, orange peel, light lemon zest, and a touch of cardamom. The taste brings in more of the same, along with a vague sense of sweetness throughout. The body is a light medium, with a moderate carbonation and a kinda dry finish. Overall, a surprisingly very nice little tripel; maybe not one of the paragons of the style, but an enjoyable example nonetheless.

Golden beer with nice frothy head that dissipates to a thin blanket of microscopic bubbles.

Banana, apple, biscuit malt, and clovey aromatics.

Starts sweet and fruity; banana, apple, pear, and green raisin. It then moves into maltier flavors including biscuit, caramel malt, and bread. Finishes really dry and spicy.

Mouthfeel is light-medium with lots of carbonation that massages the tongue. Well attenuated.

This beer will always have a warm spot in my heart because it was my introduction to Belgian brews and still is very satisfying.
