florent.janssens (263) - - DEC 29, 2014
Bière au goût trop léger. L’arrière goût est trop légèrement houblonné. On sent la chaleur de l’alcool en fin.

Boxereddy (406) - BELGIUM - NOV 11, 2014
Licht troebel bier met rijke schuimkraag. Zou suikervrij zijn, licht bitter mondgevoel. Bitterigheid blijft na afdronk.

Icedwarf (1101) - Etten-Leur, NETHERLANDS - NOV 7, 2014
Troebel geel bier met veel schuim. Smaak is hoppig bitter en licht zuur fruitig, citrus en bessen. Blijft lang hangen.

Holmen1 (4343) - Stavanger, NORWAY - OCT 23, 2014
Flaske fra Belgisk Bryg, delt på RBHD-samling på Tau okt-14: lett uklar gylden medhøjt hvitt cremeskum. I motsetning til De Graal Tripel som den etterfulgte har de her vært atskillig mer forsiktige når de forsynte seg i krydderskuffen. God, og lett å helle innenfor snippen, men den etterlater seg ingen varige minner.

Holmen2 (2562) - NORWAY - OCT 18, 2014
Shared bottle at RB/HD gathering at Tau 18.10.14. Hazy yellow. White head. Classic triple aroma, with some banana. Similar taste, with hints of berries. Light and fizzy mouthfeel.

Sigmund (6231) - Tau, NORWAY - OCT 18, 2014
Shared 330 ml bottle at local tasting. Hazy golden colour, white head. Typical tripel aroma, but fairly moderate, mild spices. Fizzy mouthfeel. Fairly nice tripel flavour, mild spices. Nice enough, but no trappist.

Trappist1 (646) - Diest, BELGIUM - OCT 2, 2014
light yellow orange color with a snow white creamy head. nose: has a lot of yeast, bit sharp. malts, spices. even a smokey touch. but i am not convinced here. taste: a lot of malt, even a ’rauchbeer’ feeling. some (european) hops? Very dry, but again, unbalanced to even a bit sharp. no traces of alcohol, average carbonation, bit of a creamy body. bitter finish. ok, it’s a good try, a whole lot of somehting, but not a whole. got the feeling this beer is still a work in progress?

Alengrin (4076) - BELGIUM - SEP 29, 2014
Tripel launched in 2009 referring to the brewery’s name ("the quest for the Holy Grail"), with a thick, cream white head and hazy yellow blond colour. Aroma of old ’jenever’, white bread, grains, pear, freshly cut grass, unripe peach and a hint of H2S. Dry fruitiness, some peach, bready yeastiness, full and fluffy mouthfeel, caramel touch, warming gin-like alcohol in the finish along with mild grassy hop bitterishness. Decent.

hawthorne00 (3276) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - SEP 1, 2014
Renowned tripel imbiber hawthorne00 staggered from the vaulted archway of the Grand Back Fridge. He lunged for the nearest receptacle he could see, a Westmalle chalice. Grabbing the gilded glass, the forty-six-year-old man heaved the masterpiece toward himself and tearing the cap from the pulchritudinous-blonde-tressed-emblazoned-labelled libation hawthorne00 inverted it as it collapsed backward in a heap beneath its canvas-like head.

About 10C. Hazy gold with a head that lasts once it fades to a coat. Aroma of wheaty dough, oranges, cloves, pepper. Sweet - grainy and yeasty with apricots and oranges. Alcohol is well-hidden, but it’s a bit dull until the likeable finish which is dryish, spicy and moderately bitter.

A voice spoke, chillingly close. "Do not neglect the wisdom of the lowest rating." Only eight pages away the mountainous silhouette of a rating stares through the iron bars. It was broad and tall, with ghost-pale skin and thinning white hair. Its irises were pink with dark red pupils. Why it had these features is no more puzzling than how they were discernible in silhouette. The renowned Google translate says it’s written in Galician. And rather than tedious hints about the supposed offspring of Christ, it says in translation inter alia "corresponds with ni ni flavor." Ah. Wrong grail yarn, Patsy.
