DwarfeD (1922) - Amersfoort, NETHERLANDS - OCT 18, 2015
33cl bottle shared at The Capital, Leuven. Hazy golden with a small white head. Medium body with moderate carbonation. Subtle bitter and sweet tones. Citrus, caramel, malts, sugar and herbs. Not too good.

corkyrory66 (1011) - BELGIUM - AUG 26, 2015
Triple (selon le brasseur) non filtrée, d’un niveau abv de 8 %. Exemplaire d’un an et demi. Couleur doré légèrement abricoté, à la clarté nette. Bulles moyennes assez vives en fontaine centrale. Mousse qui devient un nappage diaphane d’un petit mm. Arômes de malt blanc, fleur blanche, petite épice, eau de rose. 1ère bouche souple, mais très déséquilibrée sur une épice assez aigre, girofle. Arrière-bouche sans équilibre non plus. 2ème à la texture très belle, mais rien dans les saveurs. Arrière-bouche sans harmonie aucune. 3ème un peu mieux quant à l’équilibre. Arrière-bouche intéressante, maltée et épicée. Longueur où la levure fait son travail pour accentuer le côté suave, avec par moments des nuances correctes dans les saveurs. Jambes fines, groupées, un peu collantes. Levure douce, un peu de tabac, correcte. Alcool correct, il agit valablement sur la longueur. Finale inférieure à la longueur. CONCLUSION : bière beaucoup trop irrégulière, nulle au départ, valable en longueur, faible en finale. Juste une mention pour la texture… Après cela, Kalle peut continuer à sonner les cloches !!

JulienHuxley (4635) - Trois-Rivières, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 30, 2014
At Butchers Tears, Oudjaarsticken pub crawl. Hazy gold pour with white head. Aroma is spicy, tons of belgian yeast, light herbal notes, pretty classic triple, boozy flavor, grainy, belgian yeast. Meh.

erickok (4464) - Leuven, BELGIUM - DEC 30, 2014
Golden body. Typical triple aromas, sweet clean malts, alcohol. Simple, boring. Typical tripel. (Oudejaarsticken. Bottle at the brewpub.)

Borresteijn (5646) - Zaandam, NETHERLANDS - DEC 29, 2014
On tap at Butchers Tears. Clear golden colour, white head. Aroma is sweet, spicy, coriander, malts, light floral, sugar, white fruits. Flavour is medium sweet, light sugary, spicy, malty, light floral, hint of metal, bittersweet finish with some lemon. Medium-bodied. OK but generic Tripel.

caesar (5968) - Bunnik/Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - DEC 29, 2014
Tap @ Butchers Tears during ’oudjaarsticken 2014’, small sample. Slight hazy golden color, short head. Aroma of spicy yeast, some grainy malt. Bit sweet in taste. Just your average belgian tripel.

MrHangover (3583) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - DEC 28, 2014
Bottle @ Butchers Tears. Pours a clear amber beer with a big off white head on top. Aroma is very herbal, yeasty, fruity. Flavor is sweet, again herbal, cinnamon, fruits and quite strange. Not really sure what to think of this one.

ForlornHope (244) - Hampshire, ENGLAND - DEC 14, 2014
33 cl bottle at home. Pours like a tripel, no real head. Golden colour. Taste is sweet to start with spicyness and liquorice coming through. It has a sour aftertaste of mustiness which is not really too good. Thin palate. Ends very bitter. Trying to take a tripel away from lucsious sweet graininess. Nice attempt, but I’m not convinced. Goes into the "interesting" list.

Alengrin (3670) - BELGIUM - AUG 23, 2014
Spiced tripel with cream white, medium thick, sticky head and deep peach blonde colour, cloudy. Aroma of caramel, mango, vermouth, bread, orange peel, tomato, coriander and fried eggs; the liquorice stays in the background. Soft fruity taste of apricot and orange, soft bitterness dominating but in a gentle, herbal way, coriander and liquorice noticeable but subtle, more spiciness in the finish, dryish ending. Good tripel.

Een bier met een bijzondere smaak, maar mij beviel het enorm. Dit ga ik nog drinken
