Golden shining and soft feeling in the mouth - perfectly balanced taste - full body and heart warming, a splendid aroma, tickling in the nose - hoppy dry long finish.

pintbypint (3312) - Edmonton, Alberta, - NOV 7, 2004
330ml brown bottle. Yeasty, spicey aroma. Poured cloudy gold. Giant whipped cream head. Yeasty notes continue in flavour, bit of spiciness, wheathy notes, some orange/lemon, and malt. Quick finish, dryish.

kidmartinek (4447) - austin, Texas, USA - JUN 21, 2016
Pours gulden with a broken bubble white head that sticks like great stuff to the glass. Aroma is sharp ferment. It foams a lot on intake. Hahaa. All that fuzz fizz makes it difficult to taste.

Kita (1818) - Koper, SLOVENIA - JUN 20, 2016
Bottle, 0.33l, courtesy of CanCrusher. Pours clear deep golden with medium creamy white head and sparkling appearance. Taste starts moderate sweet grainy, follows sour grassy, yeasty and mild medicinal, mouthfeel is warming and alcoholic, while finish is moderately bitter. Medium body, slick texture and fizzy carbonation in palate. Quite hoppy tripel, not the best, but drinkable...

rauchbier (3765) - Isle Of Beer, Lincolnshire, ENGLAND - JUN 18, 2016
Bottle, from Lidl. Straw gold, vast fluffy pillows of white foam, quickly thinning to a dense sheen, insistent condition. Estery sweet notes with a slightly oxidized note, biscuits and honey, and a gentle spiciness in the nose. Sweet in the mouth with low undercurrents of yeast and esteriness, some hints of grain and a warming alcohol note, a gentle spicy bitterness and a light grapefruit citrus tang cuts the sweetness a little. Finish is estery and sweetly sticky with lots of retronasal alcohol, faintly metallic, and with a gentle spicy bitterness lingering.

Garrold (3932) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JUN 16, 2016
Bottle. Lidl. Hazy, honeyed gold. Frothy, lasting, white head. Nice hoppage to this, among the barley sugar malts. Bit of apricot and grapefruit and such. Taste is sweet and yeasty. Some soft bitterness. Mouthfeel is foamy and full. A tad boozy, maybe. Some tooth numbing going on. Finishes a little dry, with a lingering hop bitterness. Tasty gear, not far off a complete winner. Lidl did good with this set of beers.

UjoKlobasa (467) - SLOVAK REPUBLIC - JUN 16, 2016
Bottle. Pale yellow, almost watery color, clear liquid, white head. Smell of banana. Aroma of banana, whiskey, oak, smoke, alcohol. Taste is medium bitter. Pleasant.

GSAP (676) - NETHERLANDS - JUN 11, 2016
Tsja, triple is een triple, deze valt in de middenmoot. Zoetjes met bitter, fruit en prikkels. Lekkere kraag.

dchad56 (303) - - JUN 4, 2016
Bottle - pale straw yellow with high carbonation but small white head which quickly goes leaving just slight lacing round side. Alcoholic lemony aroma. Heavy ting on tongue / mouth. Lemony tasting but too fizzy for me and high alcoholic feel.

Wendigo (55) - Bratislava, SLOVAK REPUBLIC - MAY 30, 2016
0.33l bottle. Little sour aroma (like at wheat beers). Golden-yellow colour with turbidity right under the top. Confusing bitter taste with sourness and alcohol end. Overall, this is my first and last bottle as well.

Bosbouw (2537) - Gemonde, NETHERLANDS - APR 22, 2016
Citroengele kleur met een goede kraag. Ruikt zoetig, mout, kruiden, zwaar. Smaakt zoetig, zwaar, alcohol. Zwaien zoet.

fuzzcro (199) - Illinois, USA - APR 19, 2016
I found this to be an excellent Belgian Tripel. Picture perfect pour that’s a bright sunshine yellow. Mild aroma. Just enough sweetness to steal any bitter away. I’ll drink this one again. I’m baffled by the low rating here.
