New Belgium Trippel

New Belgium Trippel

Ratebeer 3.62 93rd percentile
Beer Advocate B+

I am about to tell you about the coolest restaurant in Seattle, Cyberdogs. The Misses marked this as a must visit vegetarian restaurant. This place is small with very little seating. But the gourmet veggie hot dogs with custom toppings were amazing. They even had a great beer selection. I plan to make this a regular stop whenever I am in Seattle.

Taste +5
The nose was hard to get through the neck of a bottle. I did notice a vague sweetness with apricots, citrus and yeast. It reminded me a lot of Orval. Each sip was very smooth with fresh, pale fruits, spices (coriander), yeast and citrus.

Aftertaste +1

It was slightly warming with a citrus and yeasty dry ending.
Alcohol Content +1 7.8%

You would never know it.

Value +1

Delicious. Definitely will buy again.

Ingame Enhancement +1

As you can see in the photo, I played a little old school Ms. Pac Man.

Overall 9/10

A great Belgian trippel that does not have to cross and ocean. It was sweet, dry, fruity and strong.
