Brugge Tripel is an excellent Belgium style ale. Very smooth but robust flavors, with a perfect ABV. While this style of beer is not my favorite on its own, I have found this to be a great beer to pop open when family and friends are over. I actually find it just as pleasing as Chimay, and its made a few hours from my house.

On tap at Yogiís. Poured a very cloudy yellow with an orange hue and a white head. Aroma was full of sweet fruit notes with undertones of citrus and yeast. Flavor had a similar profile as the flavor with more pronounced citrus notes.

hotstuff (3954) - Indiana, USA - OCT 10, 2009
Draft. Very small white head with a short retention span, hazy body with no visible carbonation, no lacing and a straw yellow hue. The aroma was sweet, fruity, bready malt, sugary, and some pepper notes. The flavor was sweet, fruity, the ABV definitely came through, spicy, malty, and yeasty. The mouthfeel was tingly and a medium bodied beer. Refreshing and worthy of a try.

bomber into large snifter. Large white head after the pour but then settes, golden yellow and clear. Aroma is lemons, yeast, grass. Taste is slightly sweet malt, very tart, lost of yeast, bitter in finish. A little too heavy on the yeast for my liking.

Bomber. Straightforward, plain vanilla tripel with an off-taste in the finish. Hazy, deep gold body. Big white head, mostly lasting. Sweet aroma with notes of pears, bread and spice. Hint of lemon. The flavor is moderately to heavily sweet and lightly bitter. It finishes moderately sweet and lightly bitter. The overly sweet flavor and spice seem disjointed, resulting in an aftertaste that is not satisfying, but also is not a deal-breaker. Medium body, watery to smooth texture and moderate carbonation.

thedm (4889) - Fort Wayne, USA - SEP 2, 2009
This draft brew from a beer festival poured a small sized head of foamy white colored bubbles that were and left behind a hazy softly carbonated orange colored body and a poor lacing. The mild aroma was malty. The crisp mouth feel was weakly tingly at the start mediumly tingly at the finish with a medium caramel aftertaste. The flavor contained notes of malt and fruity. An OK brew just nothing special.

Had this on tap at the brewpub but was in town for a wedding with a lot of family and didnít take good tasting notes beyond the numbers.

After hearing all the bragging about this beer I was disappointed to get to the brewery and they only had two beers on and another guest tap. Than I get my chalice of bubbly golden liquid and itís fucking flat. So I could not really experience the hype. Sweet simple candy sugar notes and a bready biscuity note throughout. Not really alot going on with this one.

GAManiac (1944) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - AUG 4, 2009
750mL bottle courtesy of bdigital, poured into a tulip. Pours a hazy golden orange underneath a big creamy white head that stays on as a healthy cap for the entirety of the session. No lacing to be found though the body clears up completely as it warms. The aroma is very sweet with lots of sweet Belgian yeasts and sugar coated light fruits, definitely some apples and pears in there. Some spiciness and a bit of dry earthy character as well. The taste is all over the place and has a big sweet fruit backbone that has not only apples and pears but some bananas as well. There is also a more noticeable spiciness, especially in the finish. The alcohol is also more present than I would like and the finish is an odd mix of super sweet sugars and dry spiciness. The mouthfeel is medium to full bodied and almost syrupy over time with the sugars really coming through on the palate. There is probably a little bit too much non-integrated stuff going on in this one to really impress me - spicy yeast, lemony hops, lots of sugar, light fruits. I think the ingredients are there, and itís definitely a good beer and Iíd go out of my way to try something else from this brewery.

Amber pour with a white head. Aroma of pale bread, hops and fruit. Taste is light with a small alcohol bite. Masks the 11% alcohol well without getting too dark with the malts.
