COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

MartinT (8135) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 20, 2014
My Bottom Line:
Banana esters, herbal hops and alcohol warmth coalesce in this decent Tripel interpretation.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A creamy head of foam covers the shiny golden.
-This was pleasantly clean. Which wasn’t the case with all of their brews tasted that weekend though...
-A citrusy touch accompanies the mild bitterness.
-Light cereals appear here and there.

On tap at Fiebre de Malta, Mexico City.

Lubiere (10481) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 14, 2014
A murky golden ale with a thick frothy lacing white head. In aroma, nice lemony malt with light grassy hops, light candy sugar, coriander, pleasant. In mouth, sweet fruity caramel malt with light lemony notes, candy malt, light curacao, OK. On tap at Fiebre de Malta.

Sdaniel90 (407) - Mexico City, MEXICO - OCT 29, 2014
Bottle, 355ml. Pours a hazy orange/amber with a modest head. Musky aroma, with hints of citrus zest, clove and slight sourness. Medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Crispy malt character with some citric acidity. Sweet with a subtle but stinging bitterness and a robust alcohol finish. Not horrendous, but certainly awkward to drink. Calavera always seems to have a nasty, fizzy undertone. Not bad, but I can’t get over the feeling that’s something’s terribly wrong with it.

Percy0103 (203) - MEXICO - OCT 29, 2014
Bottle, 355ml. A somewhat cloudy beer with no head. It has a sweet aroma of canned corn, caramel and maybe some wheat. It has a bitter taste and an acidic aftertaste. Taste reminds me a lot of canned corn. It has some astringency and is heavy on carbonation; so much it feels like sparkling water. Slightly alcoholic finish. It is not as terrible as some others I have tasted and poured down the drain, but I don’t think is good. Meh.

TBone (13002) - Pori, FINLAND - DEC 2, 2013
Bottled 330ml @PBFVIII
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 (20947) - 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.

laiti (5976) - Helsinki, FINLAND - AUG 24, 2013
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.

lusikka (6570) - Tampere, FINLAND - AUG 24, 2013
330 ml bottle @ PBF 2013.
Pours a cloudy copper amber colour with a white head. Aroma of sweet caramel, grass, spruce and hay. Flavour of strong grainy malts, sweet honey, grass, caramel and grass and some solvent. Medium bodied, slick mouthfeel and a very sweet solvent finish. Not good.

Pours hazy golden color with a small head. Aroma of fruits, sweet caramel and grass. Flavor is the same with some toffee and hops. Weird.

omhper (19975) - 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.
