River Horse Tripel Horse

Notice a unique aromatic nose with a hint of vanilla esters, which comes from the Belgian ale yeast. Tripel Horse has a big body and rich mouth feel and finishes mostly dry with only a touch of sweetness. If you shy from some of the sweeter Belgian ales, we think you will enjoy this one. The palate improves with age, so keep some on hand and you can ride Tripel Horse down a new path with each opened bottle.

From the Brewer – “Our take on a Belgian Style Tripel Ale, fermented with a Trappist yeast strain which lends hints of vanilla and creates a variety of complex flavors.”

Weyerbacher Merry Monks’ Belgian-style Tripel

Weyerbacher-Merry-Monks-Belgian-Abby-TripelFrom the Brewer – “Merry Monks’ is a Belgian-style Tripel. Pilsner malt combined with an abbey yeast strain yields a remarkable and complex flavor packed with notes of spice, banana and pear. Nicely balanced, with a moderate to dry finish, Merry Monks is bottle conditioned which imparts a special effervescence to the beer and a creamier carbonation.  9.3% ABV.

The ongoing fermentation inside the bottle will change the character of the beer as it ages, and you’ll find it becomes dryer with age. You may want to lay down a few bottles for future evaluation. We suggest storing at cellar temperatures – around 55°F – and away from light.”

Delicious when paired with a fish, roasted vegetables, shrimp, and strong cheeses.

Green’s Quest Tripel Ale

From the Brewer – The History of Quest Tripel Ale – “Tripel” is a style that was originated by Westmalle Trappist Brewery in the 1930s, when they began to sell Westmalle Trappist Tripel.  Rich and full-flavored, tripels are satisfying beers beloved by beer aficionados.  Many breweries now produce a tripel, but a tripel made without barley is a particular accomplishment.

Taste – Fairly light body for beer of this strength; spice and herb nose with flavors of candied fruit. Aromatic, long finish.”

Best served with steamed asparagus, artichoke, squash, or other full-flavored, rich vegetables. Excellent with beef dishes or with wild game.

Chimay Ale Tripel

Taste : Subtle combination of fresh hops and yeast that is improved by a bitter touch.

From the Brewer – “The Chimay Triple, last-born of the Abbey, is labelled “Cinq Cents” on the 750 ml bottle. Of a golden colour, the Trappist beer combines sweet and bitter in a rare balance. The beer’s aroma felt in the mouth comes from the hops’ perfumes: above all, they are fruity touches of Muscat grapes and raisins, even ripe apples. This traditional Belgian beer is best savoured fresh at a temperature of from 6 to 8°C.”

Samuel Adams New World Tripel

From the Brewer – “Pale gold in color, this ale is big, flavorful and complex. A special Belgian yeast strain adds tropical fruit and spice notes to the crisp dry ale, while Saaz hops add a subtle herbal note.

Samuel Adams New World Tripel is brewed with our blend of Harrington, Metcalfe, and Copeland pale malts and malted wheat. We use Tettnang and Saaz hops in the kettle as well as a touch of brewing sugar. We also dry-hop the beer with Saaz during the aging process to give it a Samuel Adams signature.”

The complexity, strength and smoothness of New World Tripel matches the intensity of a flavorful and rich duck.
