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.

yespr (35101) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - DEC 14, 2007
33 cL bottle. Pours hazy yellow to light orange with a huge white head. Aroma is slight grassy, spiced yeasty. Flavour is not as sweet as other triples which is a nice thing. A more sharp spice note appears in this one, but also seems a bi grassy towards hoppy. Somewhat undefineable triple but nice spiced and dry.

Ungstrup (30476) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - OCT 27, 2002
A light yellow beer with a great head - a very nice fruity aroma. The flavor is distinct with the alcohol content.

omhper (21286) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - AUG 18, 2008
Bottled (as Maerlant Damse Tripel), thanks KimJohansen! Clear golden, minimal head. Aroma of honey and vegetables. Sweet and fruity, boldly malty and overcarbonated. An aggressivevegetable flavour ruins it completely, and it followed up by a harsh resiny bitterness.

A BBE 27.5.08 bottle stored cool and dark. Cloudy gold beer. Sharp start. Malty spice with a bit of watery grapefruit. Then the alcohol shows but unusually presents as vodka and gin like flavours. Finishes sharp and crisp.

fiulijn (16428) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 15, 2002
[AKA: Maerlant Damse Tripel] Golden colour, beautiful creamy head, maintained by a vigorous perlage (how many beers still have a collar of foam after 1 hour?). Winy, sour aroma in the beginning; velvety malt later. Powerful body, pretty high alcohol, malty, a bit sweet in the front, strong bitterness at the end, introducing to a good strong aromatic and long palate. Very linear, very good.
