Une recette secrète jalousement gardée depuis des siècles, une épice mystérieuse... Bière blonde 100% naturelle à l’arôme fruité. C’est le houblonnage à cru lors de la 2e fermentation qui lui confère son arôme si délicat.

On draught at the Hotel Foch in Cassel, France. Innocent, sweet, more of a straight blond with a lightly spicy edge that a triple as such. I could have drunk this all night, such was the absence of 8% warning signs.

boto (1908) - Granby, Connecticut, USA - JAN 18, 2015
33cl bottle: This one pours a crystal clear very pale golden color. There was a big frothy white head on it that leaves some lacing. The aroma is good, but a little light. Some yeast, banana, apple and wheat notes. Very faint spices: I almost missed them at first. The taste is a little thin. Not bad, but of the lighter side for a tripel. Some yeast and breadiness, citrus, wheat, a faint dryness. OK but thoroughly uninspiring. The Duvel I had yesterday was light years ahead of this.

ThirstyBird (1880) - Düsseldorf, GERMANY - DEC 25, 2014
Pours a clear light yellow with a white head. The smell is corn, butter. The taste is grain, some butter ending dry. The body is light+ with active carbonation. Not that great and I bought the large bottle....

Heavy liquorish and fennel. Very dark treacle too maybe. Soft in the mouth and not undrinkable

On tap at restaurant in lille. Flavor is well balanced and slightly bitter. Not too sweet, good, if a bit unexceptional triple.

Pours hazy bright gold with nice white head. Moderate head retention, some lacing. Yeasty, fruity aromas. Taste follows the nose, some sweet notes. Somehow dry aftertaste.

Mainuh_man (253) - NETHERLANDS - NOV 5, 2014
0.75L bottle. Pours clear pale with a thin, white head. Aromas of bready malt, resiny hops, bubblegum and alcohol. Flavor is medium sweet, with cereal malt, hay and apple. Finishes with a herby, yeasty bitterness. Medium body with a thick mouthfeel and lively carbonation. Overall, pretty tasty. Not too complex, but some nice aromas and good balance to the flavor profile.

Une blonde triple qui a un bon départ e’ bouche, mais qui tire un peu court sur la rémanence en bouche. Belle couleur, rafraîchissante, mais qui n’amène pas la complexité de goût qu’on pourrait attendre d’une triple.
