Excellent trippel. Usually I feel obligated to stick with the Texas companies, but when I tried New Belgium's trippel I decided I would never go back to Devil's Backbone (my longtime favorite tripel). New Belgium really came up with something good with this ale. It's bright, fairly hoppy (though as always, I could use more hops..lol), has good ABV and sophisticated, non-offensive aftertastes including some flavors I find unique to this brew. Highly recommend this beer. It's well made, has great taste, and packs a punch. No complaints. :)

Pours a clear yellow with a two finger head that left beautiful lacing on the glass. The aroma was light and I couldn't quite place it but coriander as the label suggested was there along with perhaps a bit of banana of all things. The taste was pleasantly different with banana and coriander prevalence along with hops and a sweet aftertaste. Definitely a fridge item when one craves something light, refreshing and different. Careful though, the taste belies the 7.80ABV rating.
