New Belgium "Trippel"
New Belgium Brewing Company - Fort Collins, Colorado USA
Abbey Tripel (ABV 7.8%) (IBU 25)

[Best served in a Trappist glass]

Rating: 3.2/5.0

Aroma: 6/10
Appearance: 3/5
Taste: 7/10
Palate: 3/5
Overall: 13/20

The pour was a clear medium golden yellow with an average sized (1-2 finger) white frothy head that receded down to a large puddle and small collar with good spotty lacing.

The aroma was mild of a light bread malt and a sweaty yeast with notes of banana, apple, citrus (lemon) and a bit of coriander.

The taste mildly sweet and rather yeasty with a hint of citrus and a slight fruity ester early on, becoming slightly bitter with a hint of banana, a pinch of spice and a slight alcohol presence at the end. The flavor lasted an average duration with a creamy spicy fruity taste left lying on the taste buds.

Mouthfeel was light in body with a dry watery texture and a medium carbonation.

Overall a mild tasting Tripel with a good balance of flavors...
