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.

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.

22 oz bomber poured from a bottle into a pint glass.

A: Poured a golden color good thick fluffy white head, a good 2 fingers worth that settles to a nice layer with very nice lacing from start to finish.

S: First thing I'm getting is a strong malt, with a hit of citrus, coriander and spice.

T: Citrus right up front then settles to a smooth but sweet malt...The coriander, spice and a little tartness comes in near the end. Finish is clean.

M: Medium bodied with good carbonation and a slight alcohol warmth.

O: A good Tripel, right in line with the style. ABV is good so one of these will do you. Enjoy.

Instant Belgium.

A= a bit light lemon for a Belgian Trippel, nice white foamy head.

S= amazing Belgian nose, yeast, coriander, nearly monastery quality.

T= clean, nice tartness and light bitterness, top-shelf Belgian quality, slightly more carbonated than perfect.

M= slightly tart, moderately dry, mildly astringent on the palate. A very nice aftertaste to savor, though.

O= If you can't find a quality Belgian Trippel locally, this is your next best bet.
