COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Brugge Tripel is the unsurpassed city beer of the people of Bruges. This beer has a well-rounded malt character, an aromatic hop character and a great complexity of flavours. The taste truly evoques the very best of Bruges!

Successor of the old Brugse Tripel by Gouden Boom, in which Palm uses its own yeast and changed the first part of the name because the word ’Brugge’ looks more familiar to foreign tourists than ’Brugse’ (which simply means ’from Brugues’, obviously). Deeply golden blonde (’old gold’) with thick off-white head; aroma of apple, water melon, hay, pepper, lemon zest, thyme, coriander, bitter honey, white grapes, bread, aniseed; fruity, yeasty and caramelly malty taste with lots of explicit spiciness, drying towards the finish, where except from herbal hoppiness some warming, but not acerb alcohol also manifests itself. Perhaps a bit too straightforward, like most of Palm’s ales nowadays. I have also tasted this under its new alias Brugge Tripel Gruut and frankly, I am not convinced at all that this is really an alias: this version did seem more spicy, coriander and aniseed were clearly more emphatically present and the alcohol content of 8.7% ABV is higher than the old 8.2% ABV of the ’ordinary’ Brugge Tripel... Something to investigate!

Ik drink graag tripel, maar dan moet er smaak aan zitten en dat was bij deze niet echt het geval.

I love herbs. This herby (gruut) tripel is exactly the way I like it. Not to herbal as a Jopen Koyt, itś still a tripel with a fine gruut touch. bitter/sweet nice in the middle. Perfect, fine yeah, Brugge is beautiful by the way :-)

Tselloufc88 (203) - Coventry, West Midlands, ENGLAND - JUL 15, 2014
Bottle from a shop in Brugge. Clear golden in colour, aroma is of toffee and some dark fruits. Taste is pretty bitter with a bit of butterscotch and white raisin. Decent enough but not outstanding.

vickey9 (656) - Brussels, BELGIUM - JUL 13, 2014
Golden color with a nice white head. Malty, grainy and a bit sugary aroma. Body is medium, taste is sweet. Fizzy. Palate dominated by variety of sugary tones, too sweet. Tripel richness is not achieved at this case. B@H

Beautiful golden hue with a definitive white foamy head. Aroma is actually fairly light, slight spice on a crackery or sourdough base. Nice spice in the flavor, not overpowering. Sip starts almost sweet but turns slightly bitter on the swallow. Slight alcohol warmth in the mouth and chest.

R2k2 (385) - NETHERLANDS - JUL 3, 2014
A clear yellow, like a lager colored beer with it’s similar foamy layer. It has an aroma of herbs and "gluhwein", and it’s release as soon as the bottle has been opened. Quite a bitter taste, but the herb remain in the background. The slightly bitter aftertaste doesn’t last long. Een helder geel pilskleurig bier met een eveneens schuimige witte kraag. Het aroma van kruiden en gluhwein komt al vrij bij het openen van de fles. Een vol bittere smaak, maar het kruidige blijft wel op de achtergrond. De iets bittere nasmaak vervliegt wel snel.
