A - Pours light gold and clear into my snifter with two fingers of white head that has good retention and very nice lacing.
S - Lots of malt and coriander, mild banana and clove, yeast, biscuit and a little bubblegum.
T - Similar to nose, coriander and malt are very present, banana, clove, bubblegum, yeast, biscuit and a dry spiciness that lingers of the palate.
M - Medium body, bright crisp carbonation, rather dry.
O - Pretty good triple from New Belgium, good Belgium transition beer and easy drinker.

Best by 9/16/12.
Pours a crystal clear golden color with a 1/2 inch fizzy off-white head that fades to nothing. Small dots of lace drip back down into the remaining beer on the drink down. Smell is of malt, fruits, spices, yeast, and some bubble gum aromas. Taste is very much the same with a lingering aftertaste of bubble gum. This beer has a higher level of carbonation with a crisp and bubbly mouthfeel. Overall, this is a good trippel that is quite easy to drink.

Served: 12 oz. bottle poured into a New Belgium globe glass.
Appearance: A white foam cap forms in the glass. A constant flow of bubbles ran the course of the drinking. Pours to a light, golden, and clear appearance.
Smell: The slightest hint of fruit is present.
Taste: The slight taste of coriander is hard to find. It is there but it is not the dominant taste in this brew. Considering the high alcohol level, you are not overwhelmed with a hit of bitterness.
Mouthfeel: A very crisp mouthfeel. Gets the taste buds watering right away.
Overall: I just tried this beer recently. I am a fairly new/young beer drinker so there are still many beers to sample. As far as I am concerned, this is one of the greatest tasting beers I have tired. Smooth and crisp. This beer is a great beer to have year-round. Belgian beer fan? Get a pack (you'll want a case after trying one) and enjoy!

The New Belgium Tripple has the characteristics of a real Belgian trippel, but falls a little short. It's kind of like all the components are there, but it's a beer that makes me say "Mmmm that's good", not "Wow!" Nonetheless, it is a very satisfying beer. The coriander silhouette on the pale blue label is a nice touch.

Acquired from TheManiacalOne so a big THANK YOU goes out to him.
Poured in to my Brooklyn snifter
A: This beer pours a hazy, maze color with a two finger of puffy, bone white head. Head recedes slowly leaving big chunks of lacing on the glass.
S: Nose is coriander, yeast, wheat and a touch of caramel malt.
T: Taste starts off with the corriander flavoring. Not an overpowering coriander flavor though. Nice yeast notes come in and wheat flavoring. A touch of honey and lavender mingle with the yeast notes.
M: Medium body, medium to higher carbonation, nice and prickly on the back of the throat.
O: Goes down easy, tasty, not filling, well hidden kick, nice representation of style. I highly enjoyed this beer - the coriander seemed appropriately balanced and not overpowering which makes it a favor more drinkable beer for me.

Appearance: Poured into a chalice, as is the expected way to drink a belgian style ale. It was a nice golden color, very clear with a slight cloudiness. The head was decent and disappeared quickly leaving some nice lacing behind.
Smell: Hints of the coriander are noticeable, slightly sweet with a little bit of hop bitterness to back it up. The aroma is very well balanced, there is nothing that jumps out at you like in some belgian ales, very refined while still retaining characteristics of a good body.
Taste: The coriander is upfront again, followed by the signature feel of a good belgian ale. Fairly crisp and very flavorful, nothing really jumps out at you, as with the smell the taste is very well balanced. Any flavors that do jump out are not very intrusive and are well supported, the coriander is a good example of a flavor that is certainly distinguishable, but not standing up on its own.
Mouthfeel: Excellent carbonation, the body of the beer swell in the mouth and slightly bitters after a while. As with all the other aspects, the mouthfeel is quite balanced.
Overall: This is not a very powerful belgian style ale, in fact there is almost nothing about it that can put you off. It is not trying to be a powerful bruit set up for a meal of steak and potatoes, it is an ale that can be sipped on its own and leave you with no disappointment. I certainly see it worthwhile buying a six-pack.

Straw-yellow with two fingers of white head, good head retention.
Banana, pineapple, orange, floral, and spice. Coriander is very evident.
Fruity taste with a pilsner malt backbone. Pineapple is more evident on the palate. Spritzy, clean. Some earthiness.
Light-bodied with high carbonation.
A refreshing and clean take on the style. Would have again if the mood struck.
