VDuquerroux (911) - Airvault, FRANCE - OCT 11, 2015
On tap, 25cL. @Pouançay, bar L’Estaminet. A pale hazy yellow beer with a big white foamy head ; good retention and lacing. Fruits (lemon, lime), resin (+/-), herbs (+), alcohol. Medium dry bitter refreshing, light sweet. Full body, thin texture, average good carbonation, herbal dry bitter lasting finish, warming background interspersed by fresh windy episodes. Overall, a good triple ; medium bitterness fairly dry.

Alengrin (3861) - BELGIUM - SEP 20, 2015
Senne’s ’wooden leg’, tasted from tap; a tripel with thick, densely moussy, thickly sticking, eggshell white head and cloudy yellow blonde colour. Aroma of dried apricot, white pepper, some baked banana, bitter honey, green apple peel, freshly cut grass, flowers and white bread. Crisp onset, fruity but only very restrainedly sweetish with medium strong fizz, some citrus peel freshness, soft grainy and lightly bready malt body, very dry, leading to a deep, earthy, leafy, herbal hop bitterness, quite strong and a bit tonic-like, with retronasal floral aromas, lasting longer than average for the style; alcohol remains perfectly hidden. Like most of Senne’s beers, this seems to be a reaction against the sweeter style of more ’commercial’ tripels populating the Belgian beer landscape; it bears Senne’s quality stamp for sure and acts very appetizing in the mouth due to its outspoken dryness and bitterness. In that sense perhaps a somewhat atypical, but in any case very accomplished tripel.

SirBolts (8) - HUNGARY - SEP 19, 2015 does not count
Bottle. Light golden, nice head, good lacing. Sweet, flowery, honey, spice, malt in the nose.Balance is out, due to hop biterness. Malt forward taste, some sweetness, otherwise a bit watery. Long bitter aftertaste.Nice but lacks some body.
