Erasmus_ro (1474) - Alabama, USA - SEP 11, 2012
Bottle. Pours dirty and cloudy dark peach with a white head. Aroma is very rich and sweet with lemon, peach and banana as well as marzipan. Taste is dry with peaches, spice, marzipan. Some herbs, lots of spiciness and pepper in the finish. Palate is light and refreshing.

DutchDrebus (4288) - Oirschot, NETHERLANDS - SEP 13, 2011
Hazy orange colour with a regular head. Smells hoppy and grapefruit, but a bit unfresh. Tastes pretty deep and nice bitter and fruity. Great co2, full body.

UPDATED: FEB 18, 2013 2/II/13 - 33cl bottle @ home - BB:VI/2017 (2013-129) Thanks to Martinus for sharing the beer!

Little cloudy amber to beige beer, very big aery off-white head, unstable, bit adhesive. Aroma: apples, very fruity, sugary, almonds, marzipan, pretty sweet, bubble gum. MF: ok carbon, medium to full body. Taste: yeasty, nice bitter hops, fruity, nutty, pretty spicy, some citrus. Aftertaste: bitter, apples and other fruits, citrus, pretty hoppy ending. Very decent tripel!

ElDesmadre (1716) - Mikołów, POLAND - AUG 8, 2014
Bottle, traded with Bierkoning. Oh my, lots of mandarines in here! And herbs, white wine and peppery phenols. Very light peaty on top of that. Quite full for a tripel, sweetish but the sweetness is washed away by a rather powerful bitterness. A spicy and citrusy tripel. Certainly one of the best out there.

Bottle. Clear golden beer with a big lacy head. Citrus and fruity aroma. Fruity, hoppy flavour. A nice fruity nd hoppy beer :-)

Martinus (3046) - Baarle-Nassau, NETHERLANDS - FEB 5, 2013
Slightly hazy amber colour, white head. Aroma of apple, green apple, quite sweet, fruit, bubblegum and honey. Quite bitter hoppy flavour, sweet malts. Bitter finish, caramel, light sweet notes, bubblegum and fruits.
Nice brew! /And on an entirely unrelated note: during this rating, on the first day of the Brugs Beer Festival -we went there later-, my pen broke down. The exact one I got last year at the hotel I stayed in at Brugge, for -indeed- the previous BAB festival. Almost as if the pen knows..
(From 33cL bottle, shared @ The Plow Street Residence. From trade with Bierkoning. Thanks!!)

Borresteijn (4915) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - JUN 28, 2013
33cl Bottle at Rooie Dop Brewdungeon, RBESG ’13. Hazy deep golden colour, white head. Aroma of sweet malts, some alcohol, light fruity notes, yeast, dry malts, firm hops. Flavour is dry but juicy, nice malty, light fruity, good bitter hoppy finish. Medium-bodied. Tasty tripel.

WillemsUrenkel (638) - Oldenburg, GERMANY - DEC 30, 2013
0,33 l bottle bought directly ath the brewery. Pours yellow golden in the glass. Nearly no head. Citrus and fresh hop on the nose. Starts with citrus sweetness, noticeable but nice hopy. Little bit koreander, honey and almonds. Light oily, mid alcoholic, low bitterness and easy to drink. Like it!

BeerCast_Rich (1891) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - OCT 18, 2011
[330ml bottle courtesy of dantheman278] Big gusher, pours like an ice-cream sundae. Hazy golden, enormous head. Lemon citrus nose, slightly herbal. Same on the flavour – all agreed this was more like a saison than a tripel. Almost a hot, peppery finish, which follows on really well from the herbal characters. Very nice. Assuming the name of the beer is what you say to your best mate after a few of these [15102011]
