Poured from a bottle into a Chimay goblet. Virtually no head, hint of cloudiness, medium-amber liquid with bubbles fizzing up from the bottom of the glass. You can smell the yeast on this thing from like a foot away, and the closer you get, the more floral it gets. Flavor is really nice: sweet, a little spice, and you get the floral and yeast from the nose. Well-hidden alcohol. Mouthfeel is nice too, with good carbonation, slick, and a light shock to the palette from the alcohol in the background. I won't lie to you, this isn't the first time I've had this beer. It's one of my go-to's for a tripel, and probably an easy favorite for me from New Belgium.

I like, but criticized New Belgium for being a bit shy about pushing the Belgium edges. What makes Belgium beer special is the no holds barred attitude. Anything goes. On this product New Belgium smacks dab right in the middle of what is a good trippel.

Thicker golden beer with a nice white head and that malty sweet tripel aromas rise up with a touch of fruitiness.

Some good maltiness is my first impression with fruity sensations. This is a real live Belgian tripel. No holding back. Fresh. Smooth. starch plantains and faint peach. A breath of alcohol in the finish. The bitterness lingers for a good while into the after taste.

Let's recommend a nice cd by the Japenese renegade Toshimaru Nakamura Aton with Andrea Neumann!
