3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On-tap in the lovely ’Red Rose Cafe’ Brugge on 22 Sep 2013.
Correct stemmed tulip glass: cloudy yellow body with a white crown.
Semi-sour with a yeasty and hop feel to the taste and nose. There was also a selection of mixed herbs somewhere within the beer, so the flavour was an interesting combination of feelings and tastes. Most enjoyable.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Hazy yellow, medium head. Bubbly body, very Belgian, soft alcohol warmth. Oranges, white bread, pineapple, sweaty yeast. Light bitter but with the soft body it works. Herbal aftertaste. It’s good, but I expected more. (33cl bottle from Dranken Geers)

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
330mL bottle, pours a hazy golden blonde with a humungous, lingering white head. Aroma brings out tons of bittering hops, floral notes and Belgian yeast - certainly hoppy nose for a tripel. Flavour brings out loads of floral notes, Belgian yeast, a considerable hoppy component, and a light biscuity malt backbone. Quite hoppy and yeasty, with a floral hoppy finish mixed with Belgian yeast and fruity esters. Fairly high carbonation, but it works in this case. Sweetness kicks in more and more with each additional sip.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
2013-09-21. Hazy pale yellow body with a nice creamy white head. Aroma is mild, pale malt, light alcohol, light floral grassy hop character.
Flavour is nice, sweetish pale malt with dry floral accents, interesting fruity undertones, almost a tropical fruit like quality to it. Mild yeast character. Smooth average plus to medium bodied palate, good amount of carbonation. 3++ A bit fruitier than many triples. Pretty enjoyable. Bottle at The Only Cafe, Toronto

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Au fût @Bruxelles Champêtre 2013. Bière blonde au col mince à la robe dorée. Au nez, senteur de houblons floral, froment, esters légers. En bouche, très légère comme un blanche elle se boit facilement, l’alccol arrivant sur la longueur. L’amertume arrive en finale sur des notes minérales persistantes( c’’est ce que j’aime chez De La Senne). Saveurs épices et aromatiques discrètes. Malts pâles léger. Palais sec et légèrement pâteux.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
A blurry, golden beer with a white and medium head. The nose is fruitfull, spices, lemon, some perries and hint of alcohol. Taste is strongly spicy, lots of fruits, bitterness is lemony and herbal. Strong spicyness in the end. Medium+ bodied, still quite easy to drink, due to strong and lightening carbonation. Powerfull spices with nice hops are determinative features of this Tripel, the good beer.

Draught at Akkurat, Stockholm. Hazy golden, small head. Peppered pineapple up front. Mid dry with medium-full body and well rounded mouthfeel. Minerally with some citrus and marzipan. Salty, really bitter finish. Elegant and complex.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draught. Aroma has funky yeast and spices, perhaps cardamom. Flavor is a bit soapy with loads of spicy yeasty flavor. Aftertaste is somewhat tart with lemon zest. Flavor is a lot better than the aroma, good stuff though.
