DarkElf (3050) - La Jolla, California, USA - MAR 15, 2012
14-Mar-12 (750-ml bottle)
This is decidedly not a sweet style of Belgian Tripel; the beer is more a hoppy, herbal, and spicy example rather than sweet or fruity. Aromas of grass hops, dried herbs, table grapes, and bready malt lead into flavors of coriander, pepper, hay, stone fruit, and bready, grainy malt. The beer is fully attenuated, very dry, no obvious sweetness is apparent, and the hops and herbs contributed light-medium bitterness. Medium-full in weight without the benefit of any sugar, and carbonation is medium to medium-high, but still smooth. Hazy, golden in color, and capped by nearly an inch of off-white head that settles to a dusty sheet. Overall, a different kind of Tripel, and one that I really appreciate. Im less of a fan of the sweeter style of Tripel, and Im pleased that this one is dry, hoppy, and herbal.

Grzesiek79 (3778) - Radom, POLAND - JUL 23, 2015
Many thanks for this beer to JefVerstraete. Pianka spora, wysoka i trwala, sporo drozdzowego osadu. jaskrawy zlocisty kolor, metny. Zapach ananasowo cytrynowy. W smaku ananas, pszenny chlep oraz nieco bananow. lekko wyczuwalny alkohol, lecz niezbyt przeszkadzajace bylo to werazenie.

Good tripel, not quite up there with the best. Honey coloured, slightly hazy, with a head as thick as shaving foam. Medium body and carb. Aroma of spiced fruit - very light and zesty. Tastes of apple, pear and coriander, with a slightly tart aftertaste. Nice and creamy too.
