Beer: New Belgium Trippel
Beer Style: Trippel
Brewery: New Belgium
Country of Origin: United States of America (Colorado)
Serving Method: Bottle poured into shaker pint
Background: That Game of Thrones inspired beer by Ommegang prompted me to pick this up. I like Tripples despite not having them often. One of my favorite trippels is La Fin Du Monde, which I shockingly have not reviewed yet on this blog. Let’s have another trippel though from New Belgium. Their label which is a gallic rooster really beckons.
Taste & Aroma: A whiff of this beer will reveal only one but perfect scent and that is of coriander. I love coriander in a Belgian ale. Trippels are my favorite Belgian ales so we’re off to a great start! A herbal, bready, coriander laden, malty, and spicy finish awaits you! This is a delightful complex beer. I’m a fan already.
Final Analysis: This is an excellent example of what craft beer can and should be. I’m going to explore more of their beers and more trippels.
