Draft tulip @ Bavarian Lodge. Hazy golden color. Head has fallen in, but this is the end of the keg, and I asked for it. Smell is faint to my stuffy nose, just a suggestion of sweet tripel malts. But not as sweet as the tripels I usually get. A dry pinot finish supported by some hoppiness.I’m pleased to find the dryness sticks around, with a bit of leaf spice–sage, maybe. I like it much, but just wonder if some of what I like is just yeast from the keg bottom.

A really great tripel, the phenolic thing isn’t too prevalent and there’s a nice light sweetness throughout that accompanies the yeasty spice notes well. Typical great De Dolle interpretation of a style I’m not crazy for.

Single bottle from Yankee in Sturbridge. Poured into a snifter. A very murky light orange-amber with a frothy off-white head. Very complex aroma and flavors. Sweet plum-bread, dry yeast, good hopping, some spice, some citrus. Slightly sweet. Some herbal notes. Very smooth too. Incredible.

Like most triples this Mad Bitch is bold rich and full of flavor. Still with this one you also think luxurious and refined. Colour is nice hazy yellow with a good creamy head and soft prickly carbonation. Flavor is sweet malts licorice yeast bitter hops and some of the 10%. Delicious.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Clear amber with off-white lacing lasting foam head. Hoppy barley aroma, some hay notes. Quite sweet taste for a tripel, but then they added sugar to it. Can believe this beer matures well. Small bitter aftertaste. (Velp 201409)
