New Belgium Trippel

New Belgium Brewing Company, Ft. Collins, CO

A Belgian yeast strain, Pilsner malt, and Nobel hops is the triple-threat this Belgian style ale struts out each time you reach for our bottle-conditioned Trippel.

8.5% ABV

New Belgium captures that signature “Belgian Trippel” nose and golden color of a standard Trippel very well.  The beer is complex and has a pleasant sweetness, especially at the tail end and aftertaste.  A very distinct “Belgian” taste which makes the brew very refreshing and does not taste like it is 8.5%.  This is one of Large Marge’s favorite beers and believes one of the “spices” it is brewed with is coriander.  We have yet to find a New Belgium beer we have not liked

Would we have it again?  Yes

Would we get a 6-pack?  Not at 8.5%
