DarkElf (3038) - 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. I’m less of a fan of the sweeter style of Tripel, and I’m pleased that this one is dry, hoppy, and herbal.

A beer honest without being the best, you can see a beer, enjoy. Evolution lacks a bit of balance and depth.

bonkiedeaap (418) - Leerdam, NETHERLANDS - MAY 24, 2015
Bottle from Dranken Verheyen in Poppel. The beer is light blonde/yellow colored and pours a stable white head, with nice carbonation. The aroma is a nice palate of sweetness from fruits, like bananas and citrus, spices and a little alcohol. The taste is light sweet with a nice fruitiness and some hop notes. Also a light spiciness with tones of pepper and coriander is noticable. The finish is light bitter and spicy. Nice tripel, but the taste could have been more full bodied.

Gerbeer (2321) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 22, 2015
330 ml bottle. Pours a hazy yellow amber with full foamy head. Aromas of Belgian yeast/bananas, marshmallows, and spicy hops. Flavors of dried peaches/apricots, clove like spice, light sweet citrus, and bananas. Full and creamy with lots of fine carbonation. Nice.

rdb84 (302) - NETHERLANDS - MAR 30, 2015
Bottle. Beautiful golden pour with lasting, dense foam head. Fresh and crisp (saison?) aroma of fresh grass, lemon juice, slightly ripened cheese, apple cider. Nice. Taste is a mellow blend of apple juice, grains, Belgian white, hint of lemon, yeast/cheese. Aftertaste is neutral. Great for an early summers evening.

Lele (237) - Padova, ITALY - MAR 8, 2015
ASPETTO: biondo oro carico, torbido. Schiuma bianca, fine, abbondante e persistente (romane sempre un sottile strato nel bicchiere). AROMA: molto gradevole, ricorda molto lo champagne, altre ad avere sentori speziati, floreali e di lievito. GUSTO: all’abbocco è fruttata (frutta gialla) e con un tocco di miele. Poco dopo compaiono sentori di luppolo, che rendono più interessante la bevuta, senza però mai far sentire veramente l’amaro, che rimane solo di "sottofondo" solo nella seconda parte del sorso. Il finale è abbastanza secco e ripulisce bene la bocca. Corpo abbastanza strutturato, carbonizzazione meda. CONCLUSIONE: una triple veramente ben fatta ed equilibrata. Non è una cima nel mondo bracciolo, ma è una bevuta sicuramente molto piacevole.

Mortlach (1252) - Rome, ITALY - DEC 12, 2014
On tap @Buskers Pub (Rome). Dorata carica, schiuma abbondante e persistente. Al naso leggeri off flavours, lieviti, pane, sentori fruttati e di zucchero di canna. In bocca è piena, dolciastra all’attacco e ben equilibrata, ha un bel corpo e una ottima persistenza. Carbonazione leggera. Molto buona, nonostante qualche piccolo difetto.

Holmen1 (3409) - Stavanger, NORWAY - OCT 23, 2014
Flaske fra Belgisk Bryg, delt på RBHD-samling på Tau okt-14: klar gylden med flott hvitt gardinskum. Heftig aroma og smak av lyse bær, fennikel, basilikum, anis og hele urtehagen. flott karbonert og forførerisk lett for sin omdreiningshastighet. Men passer det med så mye krydderier og urter i en tripel? Sødmen er nesten fraværende.
