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.

This is another fine example of the new belgium brewing company. This beer pours a deep golden color with a very large creamy white head. The head lasts alot longer than most brews from this company which is a good thing. There is a fruity smell to the beer. Upon first taste you notice light malt sweetness with alot of hop and fruit flavors. Also there is a slight wheat taste. The beer also has a slight alcohol flavor to it, which isnt too overwhealming. Overall this is a very good beer.

An award-winner that doesn't live up to its tall billing. Quickly dissipating white head. Very spicy nose, slight alcohol hints. Flavor is part wheat and spicy, though one would hope for greater complexity

Billowly, thick & creamy persistant white head. Golden, slightly hazy hue that seems a touch darker than the norm for a tripel. The large amount of yeast sediment in the bottle indicates bottle conditioning. Complex fruity esters include clove, which dominates, but subtle pear and banana notes can be discerned as well. Creamy smooth mouthfeel with moderate carbonation. Tastes a bit cleaner than other Tripels but is still complex in flavor. A nectar - like sweetness upfront is ensued by fruity yeast byproducts including notes of pear and green apple acetaldehyde. Just a hint of hop bitterness rounds it out in the finish. A well balanced, well brewed and fresh tripel, though not as intense as some Belgian tripels if you can find them fresh. Gold medal GABF 2001, if I recall correctly.

I was not as impressed as my fellow beer tasters. I though it was good, had a nice citrus flavor, but not as complex as I would have liked.

For the price, this is a damn good trippel. One of the best six packs for under $8. It's only slightly below the level of the good Belgian trippels.
