Dang! Was looking forward to a bright spicy tripel. I got a sweet syrup bomb with some heavy handed bittering hops. Bummer. Poured a murky gold.

Sigmund (4958) - Tau, NORWAY - JUL 29, 2014
330 ml bottle, Cardinal Pub & Bar, Stavanger. ABV is 8%. 18.30 degrees P. Cloudy pale golden colour, moderate white head. Strong aroma of spicy Belgian ale yeast, peppery and some fruity notes. Peppery and hoppy flavour (49 IBU), not too sweet, not too dry - well balanced. Very good - a beer I’ll have again.

A lovely, luscious beer with a silky smooth mouthfeel. Pears, apples, grapes & sour notes. Beautiful Belgiumness at its Best. Rated by BrewTom

ruigo (1037) - PORTUGAL - JUL 22, 2014
Shared a 33cl bottle. Pours a hazy orange colour with a thin white head. Yeast, coriander, honey and citrus in the aroma. Average carbonation and medium body. Taste is more bitter than sweet, what is not very normal in Tripels. Overall, a very food beer that made me change my opinion about tripels.

Abijen (1403) - ’s-Hertogenbosch, NETHERLANDS - JUL 21, 2014
Pours a golden orange unclear beer with a good white head. Smells yeast, standard belgian ale. Meh. Tastes malts, and very standard. Sweet. Average carbo, medium body and a sticky texture.

mansquito (3301) - Nueva York, New York, USA - JUL 19, 2014
Alewife, Queens tap: Pours darker than your average tripel with a white head. Aroma is fruits, honey, dirt, and some yeast. While this is more bitter than your average Belgian tripel, by American standards, not so much. What stood out most for me from this beer was the malty finish. Overall, this beer didn’t strike me as much of a tripel, but more like a BSA.
