SinH4 (553) - SWITZERLAND - FEB 19, 2015
Golden color with medium white head. Sweet, floral, perfumy aroma. Taste is bitter and dry, unusual for a Tripel. Good carbonation, but low for a Tripel. Fine!

Ysok02 (179) - MOns, BELGIUM - FEB 12, 2015
Robe dorée, belle mousse. Nez complexe sur le houblon, le pamplemousse, un coté floral, de la pomme compotée, une pointe de levure. Bouche à l’attaque tendue, une très belle structure, une amertume marquée mais bien compensée par la puissance et la longueur aromatique de la bière. Un triple puissante et dominée par l’amertume mais d’un équilibre impressionnant.

hackobock (1965) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - FEB 12, 2015
January 23, 2015. Bottle at Bier Circus.
Hazy orange with a creamy white head. Aroma is sweet malty, dough, honey, orange, floral and light perfume notes. Taste is medium sweet with a medium smooth floral and grassy bitterness in the back. The bitterness in the finish is grassy and floral and a bit sharp. Medium bodied, fizzy carbonation.

adamnowek (448) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - FEB 10, 2015
Hazy orange-ish gold. Head recedes fairly quickly. Fairly floral in scent. Quite bitter and a reasonable about of dryness on the palate.

LeFaune (38) - ST MANDE, FRANCE - FEB 9, 2015
Very nice golden color with plenty of consistent foam. Faint malts aroma. Nice malty taste, bitter but very balanced, round with hints of clove and licorice. Doesn’t stay much on the palate. Could be treacherous: very easily swallowed, but 8%. Would be great on tap and very cold.

AshtonMcCobb (3398) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - FEB 7, 2015
Bottle from Appellation Wines. Appearance - golden orange with a nice fluffy head. Nose - lemon peel and grass. Perhaps some spice. Taste - candied orange, light white pepper note. Palate - medium bodied with a tangy texture and a long dry tangy finish. Overall - good example of an Abbey Tripel.

dnicolaescu (1052) - Chișinău, MOLDOVA - FEB 5, 2015
BOTTLE 33 CL. Like any other tripel, it has a deceivingly light body, some malty/honey sweetness, perfumy blond fruit and a touch of alcohol. But unlike most of them, the fruity notes a subdued, while the spicy bitterness is amplified. You also get a nice „warm” herbal hops aroma. The finish is long and bitter. It is pretty clear and clean, but if you pour the big yest sediment, you get that brewbup-like young yeasty beer touch. Good, though I prefer milder, more fragrant tripels.

Deu (864) - Nantes, FRANCE - FEB 4, 2015
Aroma: grain, yeast, light citrus. Appearance: hazy, pale yellow, medium, frothy, white head. Taste: light sweet. Palate: grainy sweets continue, some light bitters coming up, yeast flavours. Overall: very nice Tripel, excellent palate.
