Akiro (46) - ITALY - JAN 30, 2016
Degustata in bottiglia da 75 centilitri. Schiuma poco persistente colore biondo opaco, beverina. È adatta al pasto forse non brilla per personalità ma è buona e onesta si può riprendere. Retrogusto leggermente secco e carbonata sulla lingua.

pirri91 (11) - Osor, SPAIN - JAN 8, 2016
Comprada en Auchan de Perpignan, Francia. Para ser triple malta es muy agradable en sabor. Muy buena en paladar y un aroma muy afrutado con toque dulce a miel y limon. El final de la botella queda muy turbio y deja poso.

Bière jaune-orangée, dorée, troublée de particules bien visibles, très effervescente, et surmontée d’un très large col blanc immaculé, très dense, très mousseux, et qui se réduit tranquillement en adoptant une structure nuageuse. Arômes de pain frais et de grain, léger miel, léger fruits du verger (surtout de la pomme je dirais…), quelques esters fruités (banane, poire…), bonne présence des phénols épicés (clou de girofle, poivre… peut-être eucalyptus…), effluves herbacés un peu plus en retrait provenant probablement du houblon, gazon, herbes aromatique (menthe…), petite tendance conifère… Nez intéressant, belle complexité, intensité moyenne cependant. En bouche, pétillement assez élevé sur la langue, breuvage plutôt mousseux mais présentant tout de même une belle onctuosité au palais. Au goût, pain frais, grain et malt mielleux, plus fruité que le nez laissait présager, abondant fruits du verger, pomme, poire, un peu de pêche, aussi un peu de mangue et de banane. Saveurs également bien épicées provenant des phénols (clou de girofle, poivre…), mais aussi particulièrement herbacé, probablement un apport conjoint des phénols et du houblon. Gazon, herbes aromatique, menthe, feuille verte, conifère même… Amertume légère mais tout de même bien sentie en finale, excellente intégration des différentes saveurs entre elles, complexité et intensité en bouche bien élevées, finale sèche. Il s’agit d’une tripel qui se démarque par son côté particulièrement herbacé, et, personnellement, j’aime bien ça. Très bonne bière!

A big improvement on their regular beer. The triple is a lot fuller and well rounded. Good body and flavor.

Alengrin (4467) - BELGIUM - NOV 13, 2015
UPDATED: NOV 14, 2015 Dubuisson seems to think refermentation in the bottle is enough to use the ’tripel’ designation, and I guess in this case, they are right. From a 75 cl bottle, and I hope this proves to be more enjoyable than the regular version. Thinnish, egg-white, moussy head only retaining on the edges but eventually almost disappearing, draped over a lightly hazy (yet cloudy with deposit), deep and warm golden blonde beer with lightly peachy hue. Aroma has a lot of banana-flavoured bubblegum along with hints of sourdough, industrial cider and even calvados, sorrel, limoncello, Asti spumante, freshly cut grass, white candi sugar, candied apple, honey, touches of freshly grated ginger, rhubarb, canned peach, sweaty grains, gin, old dry cloth, DMTS (melting rubber). Sweet onset, canned pineapple slices, red apple, banana, some orange peel freshness and residual white candi sugar, fairly spritzy carbo, supple body, pale malt sweetness with esters and phenols on top, caramelly edge, malt and initial white candi sugar and isoamylacetate sweetness linger, finish adds some slight grassy and leafy hop bitterishness but not nearly enough bitterness to balance out the somewhat cloying bubblegum sweetness, as well as a dash of warming, young ’jenever’-like alcohol, which becomes a little bit astringent in the end; soft sweetish malts remain, along with a subtle lemony sourishness and a somewhat chalky feel. The slightly plastic-like effect of DMTS returns as well, but this effect is drowned a bit when adding the deposit in the ’soul’ of the bottle. Still a bit too harsh, too sweet, too ’bubblegummy’ and too unrefined to truly shine, this is, in all, indeed an only slightly improved version of the regular Cuvée des Trolls, which I never liked. Somewhat redundant - and I hate to say this about a Dubuisson beer.

KyotoLefty (9127) - Kyoto, JAPAN - NOV 3, 2015
750 from Yamaya. Spicy yeast nose, a bit of vegetal stuff, citrus. Nicely tangy flavor, hoppy citrus, crisp malt. Nicely balanced but a bit bland.

Magarciaariza (4) - Puebla, MEXICO - OCT 26, 2015 does not count
Pours pale golden, a bit hazy, with a white fluffy head. The first scent it releases is fruit, especially peach. It is followed by some biscuit, sweet malts and a hint of lemon and orange. The taste is sweet, a bit sour. The aftertaste is subtle hop and grain. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Franckg (1120) - Trois-Rivières, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 1, 2015
Robe jaune clair claire, généreux col de mousse blanc et moyennement dense. Dentelle epaisse et huileuse. Arômes de levures, malt sucré, clou de girofle, melon miel, chair d’oranges. Plutôt spécial pour une tripel. J’ai l’impression d’avoir sous la main une simple bière blonde. En bouche, malt sucré, levures légèrement épicées, léger clou de girofle, herbes séchées. Finale de grains, sucre. Loin d’une grande tripel. Saveurs très commerciales.

Birra di gradazione medio alta molto corposa, si beve bene, e nel retrogusto lascia sapori speziati
