Esta espumosa cerveza de alta fermentación, reina de las ales claras, obtiene un fuerte gusto acaramelado gracias al uso de maltas especiales tipo caramelo y las altas temperaturas de maceración. El dulce sabor viene balanceado con el aromatico amargor de los lúpulos tipo Saaz que hemos traido de la República Checa. Con una pequeña adición de azúcar cande de Bélgica logramos una cerveza que a pesar de su fuerza se siente ligera y noble. Gracias a la utilización de cepas especiales de levaduras de abadía obtenemos todo el carácter que define a una clásica cerveza tripel. Esta cerveza la hacemos todo el año y nos parece ideal para acompañar platillos de sabor fuerte y quizá con matices dulces, especialmente si son basados en pescados y mariscos pero también platillos tradicionales com Chiles en Nogada e incluso algunos quesos enérgicos como el Danablu, Rochefort o el Stilton se acompañan bien con esta cerveza. También hace buena pareja con algunos postres cremosos.

Hazy orange color, small white head. Sweet, mango-herbal aroma. Medium-bodied. Very sweet mango, watermelon flavor. Some alcohol in the aftertaste. Sweet and a bit nasty.

oh6gdx (20004) - Vasa, FINLAND - AUG 24, 2013
Bottled. Hazy golden colour, small white head. Aroma is fruits, some wood and mild toffeeish notes. Flavour is fruity, nectary, caramelly and quite ok, but still a bit "down to earth" when it comes to creativity.

33 cl bottle (8,5%) @ PBF VIII
Aroma has soapy citrus, some cardboard and apricot. Flavour has strong apricot, some soapy notes, peppery spices and citrus. Too spicy but not bad anyway.

omhper (18966) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - AUG 24, 2013
Bottled at PBF. Cloudy golden, small head. Aroma of pineapple and marzipan. Very sweet with medium body and rounded mouthfeel. Sticky honey and marzipan. Peppery alcohol dominate the finish. No reminiscens of Belgian tripels, more like American run-of-the-mill oversweet interpretatipons of the style.

tmoreau (2127) - Lombard, Illinois, USA - NOV 21, 2010
330 ml. bottle poured to my 1/2 pint taster glass, with a hazed, orange/gold color, modest, off white, bubbly head foam that diminished quickly to a bubbly ring and film, leaving some intermittent ribbons of lacing. The aroma was some light tartness, mid-fruit, a hint of funky yeast, light sweetness, and a touch of caramel. A little cardboardy oxidation was noticed in the flavor, which was mainly mid-fruit and apple, medium hop bitterness, and noticeable alcohol. The body was medium, and the carbonation was low. Probably cellared a little too long, but the abv helped to smooth any flaws.

madsberg (9651) - Søborg, DENMARK - JAN 4, 2010
Bottled. Golden coloured. Unclear. Dense off white head. aroma of sweetness, yeast. fruits and spice. Flavour of spice, fruits, yeast and orange. Medium bodied. Dry yeasty end. Quite balanced, but not enough power in flavour and aroma for my likings.
