3fourths (8377) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - SEP 23, 2014
Bottle from the Noel Cuveliers Bier Shop in Abele.
Phenolic, hoppy nose shows floral-pepper-spice and citrus oil noble hops with strong minerality. Faint notes of spearmint, dandelion and calcium. Medium body, sweet approach with expansive and lush carbonation, turning strongly bitter and alcoholic, finishing effect is mint, fruit, sugar syrup. It’s not bad, but the aroma is all over the place and the flavor balance wonky.

Une tripple légère, sans amertume, tends à des arômes fruités et une texture de bière blanche. Une robe jaune pâle avec de belles bulles.

ForlornHope (145) - Hampshire, ENGLAND - JUL 27, 2014
Bottle decanted into jug then tulip glass. Large pillowy white head that diminishes quickly. Very little aroma. Appearance is a brilliant yellow. Tastes very sweet with little bitterness to balance. Medium body with a sticky texture, light carbonation. Short, sweet finish. Overall a bit too sweet for me, but quite pleasant nonetheless. Bought from Noel Cuvelier’s shop for 2 Euros a bottle (75 cl) so you can’t go too far wrong.

MarcoDL (2548) - NETHERLANDS - AUG 24, 2013
It’s nice that this farmhouse beer store has it’s own beer, but the beer itself isn’t really special. Just a generic tripel that it’s a bit too sweet and quite thin.

Theydon_Bois (11072) - Tourist Town (West), Berkshire, ENGLAND - OCT 22, 2012
Bottle (from Noel Cuvelier) at home - 20/10/12. Slightly clouded golden blonde with a thin white head that soon clears to a pond atop and the edge. File under ’W’ for whelmed - unusual for Belgium, that said at (from memory) E2 a bottle (75cl!!!) I kind of expected this! Drinkable but very average.

Jerre (2772) - Waregem, BELGIUM - JUL 20, 2012
Taste this @ home end nov. 2010. (Found at Cuvelier drinks) Light hazy golden color, with white head. Aroma fruits, yeast, malts. Medium body. Taste sweet, refreshing fruits, little hopsbitter and hints of yeasts.

BlackHaddock (4435) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - APR 25, 2012
Dec 2010: This 0.75 litre cork and caged green bottle was purchased at the Noel Cuvelier farm beer shop, which is where it is brewed for and has the rambling farm buildings as the label picture/design. Don’t know if you can buy it anywhere else? The bottle was poured into four tulip shaped glasses in an almost uninterupted single pour. The first glass had a a clear light blonde coloured body the mini haze started in the second glass, culminating with the sediment filled final glass. Each had a white head at first, none stayed the distance. Ther smell was of dirty dish clothes and Belgian yeasts. Taste was more blonde than tripel in all aspects, mouthfeel and aftertaste confirmed my thoughts. This was part of a big Belgian beer bottle night with three friends, this bottle didn’t cost much: and you could tell!

suprchunk (2473) - Crestview, Florida, USA - FEB 19, 2012
Gusher! Huge white head - six inches - with about an inch and a half of straw colored beer beneath. Big lacing. Brett aroma with citrus and malt aroma. Same in the taste with a nice corky earthiness. Mellow and sweet. Pretty good.

Bart (2938) - Brussels, BELGIUM - APR 3, 2011
Light hazy blond coloured beer with a medium white head. Refreshing fruity with hints of yeasts. Medium to full palate. Finish is full butter, short yeasty, rather fruity. Not bad.
