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!

On tap at Sovereign, pours a hazy gold with some fading, white head. Nose of straw and grass, yeast, some candy, some lemon rind, something a little industrial. Flavor has grass, candy, yeast, strong pith. Full bodied finish. Not my favorite.

Bottle 75 cl. Beautiful hazy hayish yellow, big white fluffy head, dissipates slowly leaving lots of lacings. Aroma is big, floral with sweet notes of orange, wheat, hay, also big on malty notes, bread and marzipan. Taste is soft at first, smooth malty notes paired with floral, fruity taste but still in the back next to the malt notes. Notes of alcohol and a long bitterness, gets a bit rough towards the end. Medium to big body, medium carbo. Decent!

Pullo @ Brugs Beertje, Brugge. Kaatuu lasiin kullankeltaisena ja sameana, parin sormen paksuisella tiiviillä vaahdolla. Tuoksusta löytyy viljaisuutta ja yrttisyyttä vahvempana, hiivaisuus ja alkholisuus tuntuvat alla. Maussa on viljaa ja yrttisyyttä edelleen vahvana, heikompana sitruunaisuutta ja sitruunankuorisuutta. Suutuntuma on täyteläinen ja melko tuhti, alkoholikin tuntuu. Hivenen yksipuolinen ja melko viljainen tripel. Hyvin tunnistettava.

Icedwarf (1272) - Etten-Leur, NETHERLANDS - SEP 17, 2016
Geel bier met veel stevig schuim. Smaak is bitter hoppig, fris fruitig, licht zoet met iets van sinaasappel en citrus. Mooie balans.

AgentAle (1528) - Alberta, CANADA - SEP 12, 2016
Aroma is citrus, lemongrass, slight sour and tart. Taste is a fresh almost saison palate with a deep bittering profile that surprised me for this beers origin. Qwerky beer with some hoppy punch on the end Appearance is hazy gold with a frothy pearl head that retains very well . Some medium sediment t in suspension.

Hazy golden beer. Aroma of grass and citrusy zest and a bready smell there too. Flavour pretty much exactly follows up as you’d expect, with the citrus coming through stronger and it’s quite tangy. Aftertaste is bitter and drier. Really nice.

ulrikolsen (338) - DENMARK - AUG 19, 2016
Tap. Pours hazy golden with lazing white head. Aroma has light malt, biscuit, spices like coriander and pepper yet hoppy with citrus notes. Taste is light malty, spicy and hoppy and quite fresh and bitter. A modern version of the tripel. Finish is quite hoppy and bitter.

Bottle from Spar Supermarket, Lyon, France. Hazy pale yellow-orange in colour with a thick white head of foam. It has a spicy lemon, floral fruit and citrus flavour with herbal notes on the warming fruity finish. This is rather like a Belgian IPA. Very good indeed.

Piana obfita, drobno i średnio pęcherzykowa, trwała. Barwa jasno złota, słomkowa, opalizująca, piwo mocno "gazuje w szkle". Aromat delikatnie biszkoptowy, kwiatowy, ziołowy oraz brzoskwiniowy, winogronowy i lekko cytrusowy. W smaku półwytrawny, ponownie jasne winogrono, białe wino, brzoskwinie, nafta, do tego średnia, wyraźnie ziołowa goryczka kontrująca bananowo ciasteczkową podstawę słodową. Wysycenie średnie do wysokiego.
Fajny tripel, ładnie ukryty alkohol, nieźle pijalny, solidnie nachmielony i nagazowany. Taka klasyka z mocniejszym chmieleniem...
