Style: Tripel

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 8.50%

Availability: Year-round

Notes / Commercial Description:
Our Trippel has always been a big, beautiful Belgian-style ale, but in 2015, we tweaked the recipe to include a new yeast variety and even more complex malt profile. This golden beer opens with a bold blast of spicy Noble hops, courtesy of Saaz and Hallertau Mittlefruh, and gives way to the fruity aromas offered by our traditional Belgian yeast. Brewed with Pilsner and Munich malts, Trippel is classically smooth and complex, and sings with a high-note of sweet citrus before a pleasantly dry finish delivers a warm, strong boozy bite. Give Trippel a sip to get you smiling.

Slightly excessive pilsener grain flavor, it dominates both the nose and first sips of this beer. Nose is even slightly skunky, but in the end opens up. It didn't occur to me to use an aerator during the pour, but that may have helped. Stay with this one, it opens up. The malty sweetness prevails in the end. Even close to room temperature, this beer is a drinker. A gentle, complex, balanced beer. Beer was poured in to a Belgian-style beer glass.

local ABC had this in the cooler, picked up a sixer price was no different then the rest of the Fat Tire ales

poured into a pint glass good.. appears to be natural carbonation, straw color with the malt- coriander nose, hops are a little subdued i would put this in same as Palm ,Duvel category , quite good and will have another. Reminds me of the Monksbrau we have had tripel yes... looks like they put some thought into this one .

The Trippel tastes just like a Duvel. It has a nice golden color. Medium head. High carbonation. Smells a little like nuts and bread and a little floral. It tastes hoppy, some spicy with an orange like flavor. Like the Duvel it is a beer made for the masses. No explosion of Belgian flavors or anything to say “wow” about.

This beer was outstanding! Not sure why they changed the recipe. Now it just tastes like an unfiltered DIPA! Won't buy it ever again.
