33cl. Pours hazy orange with a moderate quite fast diminishing white head. Aroma is moderate malty, sweet, citrus, yeasty. Flavor is moderate bitter with a average to long duration, sweet, a bit sour, acidic at the begining as it prickles all your mouth.

Countbeer (5297) - Best of E-Town mit 2 Brauhausen, NETHERLANDS - JUL 16, 2013
Bottle: served in a Graal Chalice: Medium sized white foamy head, which changes into a lacing on top of a hazy yellow to murky yellow colored beer. Aromas of soap, fruit like apricot, light creamy aroma, crispy, flowers, light hop and malt flowers. Flavours of hops, bitters, spices, light light alcohol toch which disappears right away, fruity, yeast, corn, grains... Aftertaste is bitter, yeast, floral, fruit and some spice. Low carbo, soft creamy thicker mouthfeel, fuller body and a creamy thicker texture. Not a fan of it’s style, but this one is nice!

kraddel (4560) - some beerplace, BELGIUM - MAY 28, 2013
got a bottle from 77ships , thnx dude ! pours yellow / blonde, bit fizzy , head is nice , but smaller than thought / feared ( i expected a gusher-kind of head ) smell is suprisinlgy much like a white ? if i’d tasted this blind, i’d definetly woul have thought ( by the smell) this is a belgian white ... to much carbo in the taste... no overkill, but still, to much. taste, again, is this a fuckin’ white or what ? more full bodied though... i kinda ... dig it ... didnt see that one coming ! its not great, but according to what i though of this brewery, and the beerstyle ’ tripel ’ i feared something way worse... so taste has orange, coreander ( much) , to high carbo, spices, grainy, bit bitterness, bit sweetness. pretty decent ! cheers, ships !

zaf (270) - ITALY - FEB 7, 2013
aroma: floral, caramel, alcohol, banana, bread apparenza: pale, amber, cloudy, minimal head, gusto: medium sweetness, medium bitterness, palato: medium body, sticky, average carbonation, bitter, tripel inusuale a mio parere..aspetto classico,ambrata,torbida,schiuma bianca relativamente persistente..anche l’aroma è abbastanza standard,piacevole senz’altro..fruttato,maltato e si sente anche l’alcool! il gusto è caratterizzato da una dolcezza media e da un amaro che si fa sentire eccome,sia nella fase primaria del gusto,che in finale dove al posto del dolce del malto(comunque presente ma in basse quantità) troviamo l’amaro che perdura,anche l’alcool dice la sua..carbonazione media,buon corpo..buona tripel,inusuale ma non da bocciare,anzi..!

Glouglouburp (6103) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 8, 2012
In short: A bland, very basic and boozy blonde Tripel with a spicy twist. Meh.
How: Bottle 330ml. Consumed approximately 6 months after receiving it through private import, so probably about 1 year of age
The look: Partly cloudy blonde body, lots of small particles, small white head
In long: Nose has typical blonde Belgian ale fruity yeast esters (bananas, peaches…) and also a strong phenolic character and light spicy notes. Taste is very straightforward, sweet light color fruits, commercial sliced white bread, grains, medium sweetness, a bit too much alcohol, surprisingly strong spiciness, mild lemony acidity. Even if there is no actual problem with the beer, I found it rather boring. An ordinary offering that, not offending, not interesting, just another beer I drank, and to think that this morning when I got up I was really serious about doing something meaningful with my day, but all I managed to achieve is to enter ratings on ratebeer, just like tomorrow.
