Beer & Cheese Pairings: New Belgium’s Trippel

Thursday, October 22nd, 2015

Welcome to this installment of Beer & Cheese Pairings. This week, I chose three, extremely diverse cheeses to pair with New Belgium’s spicy and sweet Trippel. Let’s jump right in!


Trippel from New Belgium is a big ale that starts with a bold blast of spicy Noble hops, courtesy of Saaz and Hallertau Mittlefruh, and finishes with fruity aromas that come from the traditional Belgian yeast. It is classically smooth and complex with a high-note of sweet citrus. It should be a good pairing partner to the cheeses.


Bleu Vein from Shaft’s Cheese is a savory, full flavored bleu cheese that has been aged for a minimum of one year. It is made with rBST free pasteurized cow’s milk and develops a rich, creamy flavor through a unique aging process. This bold cheese paired nicely with the Trippel. The citrus note of the beer played with the strength of the cheese.

Premium White Cheddar from Bravo Farms is made with high quality milk which creates a flavorful cheddar. The longer this cheese ages, the tastier it becomes. This cheese was exceptional on its own, but lost some of its sharp wonderful qualities when they were tempered by the Trippel.

Triple Creme Brie from Marin French is a beautiful rich and smooth cheese. It’s slightly sweet with a blooming and fluffy white rind. This was my favorite cheese and pairing of the day. The cheese was light and buttery and balanced perfectly with the trippel. The two created a rich and flavorful flavor-profile.
