Troubador Magma Belgian Triple IPA

Troubadour Magma Belgian Triple IPA

User Rating:

In my experience there are two ways to make this beer.  1) Brew an IPA in the US, where more hops is better, then add Belgian yeast and 2) Brew a Strong Golden Ale in Belgium and add hops.  I’ve found that I prefer the latter and this beer confirms it.  The quality of this […] ... [Read more]

Houblon Chouffe Dobbelen IPA Tripel

Houblon Chouffe Dobbelen IPA Tripel

User Rating:

A few months ago I did some house and cat sitting for friends who vacationed to Europe.  My payment came in the form of beer bought in Belgium and I could not have been happier.  One of the brews purchased was this beauty from d’Achouffe brewery.  It is a hoppy Tripel (or an IPA with […] ...

Ale Asylum Tripel Nova

Ale Asylum Tripel Nova

User Rating:

Moving away from from their quad which left me wanting I cracked open their Tripel a few days later.  Again, a stellar label design with bright colors and the image of a Phoenix boosted my initial expectations for this beer.  Giving some time for the beer to warm a tad I took my time pouring this […] ...

New Holland Beerhive Tripel

User Rating:

After a productive evening being a worker bee around the house I decided it was time to unwind and enjoy the cool breeze, my hammock, and a beer. Searching the newly arrive shelf I located a new release by New Holland that fell in their high gravity series. The label depicted a large honeycomb with […] ... [Read more]

Allagash Tripel Ale

User Rating:

I’m on a journey. One to find the world’s best Tripels and while I thought this was a legitimate stop along the way, it turns out I actually grabbed the wrong one. Oops, guess I’ll just have to drink it anyway. I anticipate this type of beer eagerly. While I’m most definitely not always craving […] ... [Read more]

St. Bernardus Tripel

User Rating:

Its a bachelor weekend for me. Week, actually, as my flip-flop clad wife galavants around California and I sit inside on this sunny, but Chicago-in-January-is-cold-no-matter-how-sunny kind of day. After poking about in the freezer for a minute or two and finding my gourmet lunch of not one, but two Lean Pockets (defeating the purpose of […] ... [Read more]

Chimay Tripel (White)

User Rating:

Michael: To complete the Chimay trifecta, only the Tripel (or Chimay White) remained. It had its work cut out for it, as my sampling came immediately after its redder brother, Chimay Premiere, the only A+ beer I’ve reviewed to date. While the White is a tripel by style, it was atypical of many of that […] ... [Read more]

Westmalle Trappist Tripel

User Rating:

Matt:  Mine poured a hazy, golden color, as much foam as you want – plenty of dense head. Highly carbonated-but not overly so. Smells like dried fruit- maybe apricot, slight caramelized sugar smell but definitely fruity- slight apple note. Exceptional mouthfeel- velvety but still dry- smooth. Balance is right on, any drier and you’d know […] ... [Read more]

Unibroue La Fin Du Monde

User Rating:

For some, the end of the world is a frightful thought. Visions of destruction, chaos and death flash across their terror-filled eyes. For me, I was anticipating it, longing for it, craving “La Fin Du Monde.” In my case, though, it was simply a beer, one of Unibroue’s best in my mind. I love tripels. […] ... [Read more]
