_angst_ (3051) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - JAN 4, 2014
Bottle bought some place I can’t remember. Pours tiny hazy amber with a rather small bubbly beige head that quickly dissipates without leaving much trace in the glass. Smell is phenolic with biscuits, ripe red apples, moist grass, moist wood, apple jam, alcohol and hints of lemon balm and orange peal. Taste is tiny sweet, bitter, phenolic and herbal with biscuits, alcohol, sweet bread, moist grass, slightly overripe apples, pears, lemon balm, parsley, alcohol, sheet metal and orange peal. Mouthfeel is astringent, tiny boozy and medium bodied. Finish is bitter with sweet bread, grass, wood, pine, lemon alm, apple jam and orange peal. Not my cup of tea I’m afraid.

Deep gold, slight haze, off-white head. Aroma is mostly pilsner malt, with some light spicy and fruity notes. Flavor: soft, bready malt, some peppery phenols, earthy spice, a little light fruit (pear), dry finish with some lingering bitterness. Dry and earthy.

Botella de 33 cl en casa. Octubre de 2013 --1420-- una belga con algo diferente, bastante fácil de beber y toques dulces iniciales que poco a poco van terminando en algo de amargor. Sería una triple belga un poco más amarga de lo acostumbrado. Bien- para repetir.

minutemat (1880) - Ford, Shropshire, ENGLAND - DEC 19, 2013
330ml bottle on the recommendation of the chap at Beermoth, Manchester. Spicy biscuit backbone with a vibrant, strong tripel taste with less fragrance in favour of more subtle lemon, orange and citrus notes that emerge further the more it warms. Not bad.

Riquisima cerveza Belga, con estilo IPA muy suavizado (en aspecto, olor y retrogusto).Aunque el aspecto no hace rica una cerveza, ese color pajizo turbio y espuma canela, anuncian una cerveza fresca y deliciosa!. Buen punto alcoholico (a pesar de sus 8°) y corona oscura, duradera y bien marcada...y su puntito de Humanidad por no haber dañado a ningún holandés!

(33cl bottle from Toft Vin; BBD: illegible) It pours a semi-clear pale golden with lively carbonation and medium white head that fades leaving a surface film. Decent lace. Aroma has the classical tripel component of yeast, spice and alcohol with notes of straw. Texture is kind of watery with a medium to light body and astringent finish. Flavour is largely like the aroma but with hints of bitterness. I miss the green fruit complexity that I recognize in the Tripel Karmeliet.
