New Belgium's Trippel is a strong Belgian ale with coriander. It pours bright golden with a ton of carbonation and a little head. The aroma is Belgian yeasts, fruit, bananas, and a little bit of a vanilla yogurt thing, too. And most of the coriander mentioned in the label comes through in the aroma. The flavor is rich and sweet and smooth. I'd been worried that the coriander might overpower the flavor, but it doesn't. Slightly boozy aftertaste and a sticky mouthfeel that keeps the flavor around for a bit.
