On tap at Moeder Fontainas. This is a very pale yellow beer. I’d say it’s more of a hoppy Duvel style than a traditional abbey tripel, with a spicy yeastiness, perfumy aroma and long bitter finish. Slightly absurdly I was disappointed, drinking it straight after Zinnebir my expectations maybe got ahead of me - these De La Senne beers are excellent. On a side note, they do cool labels on bottles too!

Iznogud (1434) - CROATIA - JUN 27, 2015
Bottle, 330 ml from Vrutak, Zagreb. Shared with JFK10000. Pours yellow, medium white head. Fruity, yeasty, bit spicy and very drinkable. Bitter finish. Great.

SkillsFactory (147) - ITALY - JUN 27, 2015
Color albicocca, velata dai lieviti in sospensione, bella schiuma bianca di media persistenza. Al naso sentori di pepe, citrico, leggero coriandolo, zucchero caramellato, lievito ed erbaceo. Al palato stesse caratteristiche, dopo qualche secondo si fa presente una bella nota di frumento, infine si passa ad una coda amaricante erbacea che si ripresenta in ogni creazione di questo birrificio. Retrolfatto pepato ed erbaceo. Corpo medio-leggero, non molto carbonata. Non la classica Tripel, ma decisamente buona e beverina.

bubbleflubber (1978) - Asheville, North Carolina, USA - JUN 25, 2015
Pours a hazy straw-gold into the glass with an initial wispy head that leaves light ring lace. The nose contains lots of grains and some mild esters. Flavors follow suit, with yeasty melon esters followed by a grainy hop bitter close. The mouthfeel is semi-active with a light body and lingering earthiness. Well more suited as a farmhouse/saison than a tripel, it’s not bad, but for the style listed, it just doesn’t pull together as a top-tier Belgian Tripel should, with too much focus on the earthy grains and hop backing. A decent rating, and something I would have again, but just on occasion.

Sun yellow opalescent with a fluffy white head. Aromas of banana, hay, resinous hop spice develop. Light carbonation, lightly slick with a medium body. A bit sweet with a noticeable bitterness building up, alcohol aromatic. Medium lasting finish.

KornDogg (553) - Lancaster, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 4, 2015
Bottle. Grassy, peppery aroma. Light yellow body with thin dissipating head. Flavor begins citrusy, with hints of lemon and yeast. Not the typical tripel flavor. Crisp finish with subtle honey aftertaste.
