Alengrin (4594) - BELGIUM - DEC 23, 2014
Cloudy golden blonde tripel with off-white foam; estery and sweet, malty, caramelly, very fruity, some DMS in the nose, yeasty with dryish finish, some herbal hops and warming alcohol. Okay but stereotypical.

kraddel (6360) - some beerplace, BELGIUM - SEP 7, 2014
Pours unclear blonde, ok white head . Smell is flowery / funky . Bit grains, some sweetness ( honey ? ) Taste is bitter, dry grains, with that sweet touch again ( not sure its honey ? ) . Overcarbonated , dry backbone with a sweet-ish aftertaste . Doable, bit sugary . Very standard ( appart from the honey-flowery aspect , but it does not make it better or worse per se .

ruigo (2382) - PORTUGAL - FEB 13, 2014
Shared a 33cl bottle from Cora (Luxembourg). Pours a hazy orangish yellow colour with a thin white head. Aroma is caramel, nust and malt. Average carbonation and medium body. Taste is more sweet than bitter with some unbalanced notes. Overall, a nice beer but not remarkable.

janubio (723) - SPAIN - FEB 4, 2014
330 ml. bottle. HGazy orange colour, with a head that fades too soon, though it leaves some lace. Fruity smell with some spices, nothing special. Medium body, smooth palate. Taste of fruits, spices, and some honey. Very standard, I could have one some other time, but I’m not really longing for it.

Standard Belgian tripel. I like these beers, but most of them are very interchangeable.

Swaroga (2111) - Gdańsk, POLAND - SEP 26, 2013
33cl bottle. Cloudy orange/brown with medium head. Nose : tart, banana, candied fruits. Spices. Sip : oily with moderate carbonation. Sweet fruit cake like flavor. Develops funky ester notes of cooked fruits and nail polisher. Ends with moderate bitter taste and leaves a burnyard like funkiness. Earthy on the tongue. After all it’s still quite balanced. Funky but interesting.

corkyrory66 (1422) - BELGIUM - JUN 19, 2013
Bière triple de 8 % abv, sur une recette originale de Claude van Nuffel brassée par la Proef brouwerij. Couleur dorée légèrement orangée brillante. Clarté nette. Bulles fines et vives partout dans le verre. Mousse blanche épaisse et crémeuse avec des petits cratères. Arômes de pain d’épices, figues, macarons, pomme vapeur, pointe de muscade. 1ère bouche douce sur le malt, les épices et le pain blanc frais. Toute petite pointe de kirsch. Arrière-bouche sur une belle amertume. 2ème bouche plus pleine, avec du malt un peu fumé, amertume fine, un peu d’épices, une pointe de poivre blanc. 3ème bouche avec diverses nuances de céréales et de fruits blancs.Arrière-bouche plaisante. Longueur avec de la poire, une pointe de cognac, de la pâte d’amandes, du chêne blanc. Levure très construite, un peu salée. Alcool bien dosé, correct. Finale agréable, pourtant sans réelle complexité. Conclusion : une bière curieuse à certains niveaux, un peu juste dans son milieu en sensations en bouche, et finale un peu courte. Pour le reste, très agréable.

tderoeck (8180) - Gent, BELGIUM - MAY 14, 2013
UPDATED: JUN 4, 2013 11/V/13 - 33cl bottle from De Hopduvel (Gent) @ home - BB: 15/I/14 (2013-460)

Clear orange beer, creamy off-white head, little stable, adhesive, leaving a nice lacing in the glass. Aroma: caramel, sugary, almonds, cookies, bit spicy, sherry notes. MF: ok carbon, medium body. Taste: very old, oxidized beer, honey, little bitter, hint of marzipan. Aftertaste: orange peel, very oxidized. Despite still months before the BB-date, the beer clearly didn’t survive it’s first 2 years in the bottle. (Given the huge oxidization, I suppose they took 3 years after bottling date as BB-date.)
