I am writing this as I am sipping my favorite beer in the whole wide world. (Which is the same beer I am reviewing, to dispel any doubts there might be).
I have had La Fin du Monde and Chimay White and many other Trippels, not to mention hundreds of other beers but New Belgium's Trippel stands out among them all. You could have one while you're grilling or cooking a Brazilian Bobo de Camarao. The 7.8% ABV is hardly noticable until it hits you.
I am not going to go into the details of appearance, aroma etc etc for this beer. It has had to be had to experience it. It is the Pliny the Elder of Trippels, of all beers in my book.

Apperance: Light hay color, good head little lacing.

Smell: Bold, notes of coriander, yeast, light lavender note, spice notes galore.

Taste: Up front, a bright hop note. Notes of sweetness and coriander, little sour, light pepper tones.

Mouthfeel: Properly carbonated, atypical body for Trippels.

Overall: This is a fine beer. I definitely did not expect this from New Belgium.
