"Gracefully complex with alluring depth, our bottle-conditioned Belgian trippel is spiced with a trace of coriander." Brewed in the style of a Belgian trippel. Available year-round in 12 oz. bottle 6 packs, in occasional variety packs and on draft.

Poured from a 12 oz. bottle to a New Belgium globe glass. Served above 52 degrees fahrenheit.

Pours a creamy frothed ecru white head over a orange amber body with high clarity, fine flecked sediment and plentiful assertive carbonation. Retention is average and lacing is light and streaked. The aroma is chock full of banana and clove with a moderate wheat and biscuit malt base, and a very subtle spicy note of coriander seed in the background. The flavor is more balanced with a moderate wheat malt and pale syrup base, moderate banana and clove and a touch of coriander on the finish. The texture is slick, smooth and with a moderate spritely carbonation, the mouthfeel is silky crisp. The balance is slightly sweet over spiced bitter. Alcohol presence is low, off characters are minimal. As far as the trippel ale goes, this beer is fairly easy drinking with a low alcohol presence, soft wheat and pale syrup malt base and a tame yeast and spice profile. Very drinkable.

This is a really great trippel. Given the low price, it gives you about as much bang for your buck as you can possibly get in bottled craft beer.

(enjoy by 28 Jun 2015 - carefully poured into a balloon)

A: damn crystal clear, cheesy gold color... very attractive 2-finger width messy off-white foam... drapes of thin, webby lace to and fro... shows some legs, which seems strange... 4.25

S: smells like a trappist tripel - I wanna say Westmalle... fresh-baked cracker, moderately toasty granola, wonderful mellow spicy phenolics, miniscule fusel booze... a touch flowery, not a ton of overt fruitiness... overall, fine intensity, first-class American-made tripel character... 4.25

T: assertive interplay between toasted and mildly-caramelized, woody malt notes and spicy yeast character - mild black pepper, bubblegum, mild clove... shouts it out loud on the palate... the malt truly comes across like a honey-kissed, whole-grain hors d'oeuvre cracker... lingering, moderately sweetish tone midway though quite, but not bone dry finish... almost pedio/lactic edge to the bitterness... the coriander doesn't really sing like it does in Tripel Karmeliet... alcohol very well hidden... 4.25

M: almost but not quite medium-bodied up front, with a gentle viscosity in the follow through... certainly dry, quiet, but curiously silky finish.. stealth alcohol - no heat, no burn - rinses the tension away... 4.5

O: now that I think of it, this tastes very much like Golden Monkey with a touch more depth and hardness in flavor... it's a very enjoyable beer and I could see grabbing a six-pack once or twice a year - if they sold it in my state!... 4.27?
