new belgium brewing trippel

01Nov10

Maybe I should start by explaining why I’ve been reviewing so many beers as of late. I became a member of the Uptown Beer Guild and was one, in a group of people, picked to receive a Citizens Six-Pack, which is a mixed six-pack chosen by Lake wine & Spirits, a somewhat new liquor store in Uptown, Minneapolis that has a huge selection – especially in craft beers!

This week’s review is New Belgium’s Trippel Ale brewed with Coriander. I really like New Belgium’s beers. All of their beers are unique, both in taste and style – the Trippel is no exception. Out of the beers I don’t usually gravitate towards, I would say Belgian beers are growing on me the most. Especially the Trippel, coming in at 7.8% ABV – it’s got bite, bitter flavor and it’s bottle conditioned.

Unfortunately, not too long ago a friend of mine told me his opinion of Belgian-style beers and I haven’t been able to shake it. Hopefully, expressing my viewpoint won’t tarnish others’ opinions, but I must agree with my buddy (thus far). And that is, that all Belgians taste like a yellow fruit that “sounds like” shashana.

Ever since I heard that, I agree and taste “shashana” in every sip. I’ve also discovered that I only order Belgian beers when I’m at a place where I feel/think I’m cool (e.g. The King and I Thai, The Bulldog Uptown, etc.) So, my knowledge is continuing with Belgians. The Trippel definitely has spice, and is not a beer for the sensitive taste bud.

If you like belgians, this Trippel is a golden, crisp slice of strong flavor that you can just tell goes back to the middle ages. I definitely would get this beer again, because it’s a good quality Belgian without the spendy pricetag!
