3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
A nice reddish brown ale with a thin dark mocha head. In aroma, sweet vinous malt with treacle, dark fruits, like an old ale. In mouth, a smooth sweet vinous malt with dark fruits, light peaty notes, British hops, licorice, quite nice. However, this is not a tripel, in appearance nor in taste...is it the 2 years of aging. Still a solid beer (if it was an old ale).

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle. Pours a dark bruin (why) body with a tan head thats shortly lived. Malty fruity apple and caramel with a spiced yeast tone. A sort of sweet and sour sauce note, brown sugar and over ripe apples with a strong finish. Pretty messy, pretty poor.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
2010-10-02. Hazy dark brown body, with a nice beige head that fades. 3+ Sweet aroma, dark malt, sugars, mild alcohol. 6+ Flavour is boozy at first, tangy character, the malt character seems a bit odd, touches of vanilla, plum and fruit. 6+ Average plus palate. Dull, this seemed more like a weak quad than a triple. Not great. Bottle from trade with Fred82

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
340ml bottle. Pours dark brown with a medium head that quickly disappears. The aroma is malt and caramel, taste is spicy and malty with a thin body. Very sweet, not a nice flavour. I don’t think i will be searching out any ,more Bieropholie beers, over all pretty disappointing.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Dark amber-copper color, with a thick beige head, yeasty, earthy toasty, caramel malt, mild candied fruity nose of ripe apples, sultana raisins and plums, with a light nutmeg spicy accent and a hint of floral hop grassiness in the aroma follows through on a medium-bodied palate with a warmth honeyed, toasted, biscuity, caramelized malt character, with some brown sugar, toffee, rasiny, plummy,ripe apple faint coffee flavors, with a nice flowery hop grassy note, leading towards a warming, toasty, caramel, fruity ripe apple, grassy hop bitterness finish. Not your typical triple!

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours a cloudy reddish brown color with a thin beige head. The aroma has mostly caramel and spices, it’s somewhat fruity too. The flavor has a blend of spices, caramel and mild fruits. This is far from what you’d expect from a tripel and by far the worst beer ever brewed by Bièropholie.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
341 mL bottle. Brown (!?) with a small, short-lived head. Aroma is Belgian, but contains a lot of caramel malt - not a common feature of tripels. Flavour is bizarre - again, this is not a tripel. I really don’t know how to describe this. There’s something candy-like, artificial to it. Thin caramel. Earthy hops. Brown apple. Thinnish. Closer to a dubbel than a tripel, but not particularly good either way.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
In short: A spicy caramelized syrupy sweet beer of some kind. Not a abbey style tripel and not a good beer
How: Bottle 341ml. Batch 2. Drank a few bottles that were between 2 months and 8 months old
The look: Almost clear dark copper body topped by very small beige head
In long: Nose is some kind of spicy alcohol shooter. Syrupy sweet body. Cloying sweetness. Spicy hops... no I take that back, spices and not hops (obviously that’s not the case but that’s what it felt like). Sweet berries and cardboard dipped in caramel. There was something in the finish attempting to dry out the beer but it felt like someone put a cardboard piece in my mouth. I even got a light anise flavour?!? I’ll stop here, this is a fucked-up beer. Their Double was pretty nice but something went wrong here with the usually reliable Bieropholie. Not only is it totally off as far as the style is concerned but it is also a mess regardless of the style. This beer is to Abbey Tripels what a banana-ketchup sandwich is to jazz music.
