New Belgium Brewing Trippel

What the brewers say

“Our Trippel opens with a bold blast of hops that slowly gives way to the fruity esters from our Belgian yeast strain. Remarkably smooth and complex, bottle-conditioned Trippel is spiced with a trace of coriander.”

What our panel thought

Aroma: “Straightforward banana aroma with light vegetal notes and a very sub- tle grainy malt. Light floral hops aroma and peach esters. Slight sweetness and phenolic with a touch of alcohol.”

Flavor: “Sweet malt, coriander, banana, lemon esters, and clove phenolics. Floral, spicy hops character. A Great classic tripel profile that’s ester-driven, light-bodied, and effervescent. Beautiful dry finish is the perfect segue to another sip. Low candy-like sweetness as it starts to warm.”

Overall: “Nice example of the style with coriander added. Nothing too out of the ordinary, just a good, solid, basic tripel that does what it’s supposed to. Look for a classic pairing such as moules frites or put it next to some chicken fajitas. This can handle it.”
