Poured from 22oz bomber into pint glass

A - clear straw/yellow in color. 2 inch head with decent retention and solid lacing down the sides

S - coriander and other spice heavy up front. slight maltiness but very florally dominated.

T - coriander, floral, good balance of malt and hops underneath but like the smell, very florally dominated.

M - medium bodied, good carb, a little stickiness

Overall - very pleasant to drink. possible room for improvement to allow hops or malts to come forward more. but all in all, a very good beer

New Belgium Trippel has a fairly thin (wide-brim glass), off-white head, and a fizzy, clear, yellow-golden appearance, with a bit of lacing left behind. The aroma is of musty grain and some sweetness. Taste is of coriander spice, sweet bread, water, sugar, and some mild bitterness. Mouthfeel is light and watery, and New Belgium Trippel finishes dry, easy going, and surprisingly refreshing. One just does not pick up a heavy alcohol presence with this beer, although it is there. Overall, this is one of their good ones (because, they do have some bad ones, in my opinion). For $2.99 a bottle, it’s a good value.

I've always liked the Fat Tire from this brewery even thought it tastes like dirt. I have also tried a few others and while they were "OK" I don't put them in the same league as other $8-$9 six packs that are available. Store had this Trippel on sale so I decided to try it as I really enjoy this style. Wow, was not expecting this, but to me it tastes like Schlitz Malt Liquor or some of the other corn-squeezins with high ABV. I have had dozens of Belgium Trips and this is not a good rendition whatsoever.
