corkyrory66 (513) - 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.

BartC (726) - Lichtaart, BELGIUM - FEB 5, 2008
Gold blond beer with a nice white head. Spicy and breadlike aroma and taste. Nicely balanced. Cinnamon? Very nice. It doesn’t always have to be a bitter beer.

bask (305) - Leuven, BELGIUM - AUG 11, 2005
Golden color with a medium white head. Lot’s of little bubbles. Broad aroma, hoppy (orange, abricot) with a malty undertone. The taste is fruity, with a nice sweet finish. I like this one.

Boutip (4637) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 25, 2007
Bottle: Poured a deep golden color ale with a huge pure white head with good retention and some lacing. Aroma consists of Belgian malt with some light spices which may include white pepper. Taste is a well balance mix between some semi-sweet Belgian malt, spices and light yeasty finish. Body is quite full with some excellent carbonation and no alcohol was detected. Nothing earth shattering to be found here but very good in any case.

MartinT (7677) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 12, 2007
My Bottom Line:
Banana esters and vanilla ice cream flow through a grassy and citrusy hop cologne in this lively and creamy Tripel.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A rocky, mountainous head of foam laces all around the cloudy beige golden.
-Carbonation is fluffy and active, as one would expect from this Belgian style.
-The mouthfeel is reasonably full, yet the overall effect is quite drinkable.
-Alcohol is not a factor in the flavor profile.
-The wheel has not been reinvented here, it’s just been replicated flawlessly. This was a mighty tasty surprise!

Bottled on 07/12/2006.

psilosophy (480) - vitry en artois, FRANCE - OCT 15, 2011
Bouteille de 33 cl. Couleur orangée, trouble, joli col blanc de tenue très correcte. Une triple fruitée et épicée assez archétypique de la tradition belge. Classique mais bien fait! Trouvée à Vanuxeem - Ploegstaert.
