minutemat (886) - 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.

hobsch (372) - Cologne, GERMANY - NOV 8, 2013
Bottle 0.33l at Moeder Lambic. Pours hazy dark yellow with medium white head. Medium carbonation. Aroma is yeasty, slightly sour. Taste is medium sweet and bitter, yeast spiceness. Dry and quite bitter for a triple. I really like this balance. Very good.

Mora2000 (5346) - McKinney, Texas, USA - NOV 4, 2013
Yellow pour with a white head. The aroma has some toffee and grass notes. The flavor is a mix of toffee, grass, yeast and alcohol. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

Very bitter tripel indeed, with a nice saison-like dryness. I liked it a lot.

rbrazell (1457) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - OCT 28, 2013
Bottle from Proof. Clear deep golden pour with a large rocky white head. Very spicy and floral aroma with fruity yeast and citrus. Sweet estery yeast entry, candy sugars mid palate with maltiness fading into a dry spicy and floral note. Medium thick bodied with mild carbonation. No real noticeable alcohol. Pretty tasty.
