New Belgium Trippel ....

Tonight I will try a Trippel from New Belgium Brewing Company.  This one is brewed with coriander.  The twelve ounce bottle shows 7.8% ABV.  The web site lists IBUs at 25.

Trippel poured with what appeared to be an off white head, but it was so thin it was hard to tell.  Beer color is a medium or slightly darker gold/yellow.  The aroma has some yeast, sweet fruit, a little banana and spice.  Medium bodied.  The taste is much like the aroma.  It is balanced with yeast, fruit and the coriander.  The spice does come through a little more in the taste.  The carbonation and higher alcohol are definitely present. The alcohol seems to stick around more than taste in the aftertaste.
