Une vraie triple, et par ailleurs une « belgian revolution triple », dixit l’étiquette, un peu à la cartoon . Le plus important est qu’elle indique 8 % abv, et une blonde artisanale refermentée en bouteille. Avec ça, on pourra faire … Couleur doré moyen brillant. Clarté nette, pure, limpide. Bulles très fines, et ce qui est très rare, très lentes mais partout dans le verre. Splendide. Mousse blanche bien crémeuse qui tient à 1,5 cm, avec des cratères au centre. Splendide. Arômes de malt en 1, houblon fin mais sûr de lui, pointe de coriandre. Splendide. Volume soyeux de la 1ère bouche magnifique, pleine, à la fois malt et fruits blancs. Arrière-bouche avec une pointe fine de fleurs, houblon, épices fines. 2ème bouche équilibrée, fine, complète : malt/bois blanc/houblon. 3ème bouche douce, soyeuse, au goût bien affirmé avec un très bel équilibre. Arrière-bouche de malts fondus . Superbe. Longueur de classe pure, sur le houblon, avec des centaines d’impressions. Levure intégrale, très belle veine, adaptée. Alcool très bien pour le genre, nickel. Finale longue, longue, fraîche, fruitée et houblonnée. Une bière qui est une sorte de référence de la bière artisanale houblonnée. Un exemple admirable de ce que la Belgique peut offrir en la matière, mais qui, bien sûr en constitue une déclinaison du thème. Sous-entendu : il faut prendre d’autres leçons et déguster d’autres variantes de ce thème éternel des triples.

Bottle at Sean and Rushes, Leicester. Pours cloudy yellow, with a ring of froth. Smells beautiful: lemon, wheat, Belgo yeastiness. Taste is beautifully dry; packed with lemon, which squelches; pockets of pin-prick sweetness. Beautiful mouthfeel. A delightful beer. Really tremendous.

Apsolutni hit! Blaga gorčina, aroma grejpa, visoki alkohol, osvježavajuće. Daleko najbolji trippel kojeg sam probao.

Dense, goldenrod pour has a silvery sheen to it. The aroma is packed with fresh fruits, spices, and flowers, all golden and brown; pear, golden kiwi, dry grass, cardamom.

The freshness of this is confounding, and the interplay of the yeast with the vibrant hops and the doughy malt is a thing to behold. The rounded thickness of the body is impressive, if not as much as how wistfully dry and airy it remains at the same time.

The idea of the incredibly fresh Belgian tripel was a revelation for me, and it’s incredibly bittersweet to know how rare of an experience that will be.

Super tripel taki jak lubie wlasnie. Kwaskowaty wytrawny i chmielny, choc niewiele slodowosci tez tu bylo to z pewnoscia dominowaly tu cytrusy, cytryny limonki i gozka pomarancza, troche nawet zielonych oliwek. Aromatyczne o sporej i bardzo trwalej piance. Zlociste i jaskrawe do tego mocno metne. Na dnie butelki chyba z centymetr osadu. Super gozkie piwo o dlugim wytrawnym finiszu.

Au fût @Bruxelles Champêtre 2013. Bière blonde au col mince à la robe dorée. Au nez, senteur de houblons floral, froment, esters légers. En bouche, très légère comme un blanche elle se boit facilement, l’alccol arrivant sur la longueur. L’amertume arrive en finale sur des notes minérales persistantes( c’’est ce que j’aime chez De La Senne). Saveurs épices et aromatiques discrètes. Malts pâles léger. Palais sec et légèrement pâteux.

3fourths (9146) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - MAY 25, 2014
UPDATED: AUG 20, 2014 Bottle dated June 2013. Effervescent, lightly hazed amber with a tall-building white foam head. Sugar cookie Belgian Pale malt with a more moderate hop profile of grass, flowers and citrus. Medium-full body, sweet approach turning to drying, phenolic, bitter finish. Extremely clean nose, no trace of ethanol, malt is superbly soft, creamy and fine carbonation. Kind of a head scratcher that we are getting 11-month old bottles in Colorado just now (May 2014), and surprised to see it’s held up so well, a testament to the brewing skill at De la Senne, sure, but not all of their beers stand up to that amount of time (see Aug 2013 batch of Taras Boulba that showed up 6 months old and oxidized earlier this year).

Lore (2200) - Budapest, HUNGARY - JAN 23, 2016
opalescent yellow colour with small yeast particles, large head; aroma of overripe fruits, orange zest, earthy-wine cellar- and peppery notes, as well as some grape; taste is the same with some grains; very well balanced bitterness and sweetness with some spicy notes; almost perfect tripel

Taste: sweet malts, candi sugar, some honey, citrus fruits, bitter hops. Aftertaste: pretty dry and citric ending. Alcohol noticeable.

Bottle @ home picked up at Supermarket Liquor after class. This is a grate fucken brew. Petes grate. Murky orange appearance with a lasting, spidery off white head. Some bubblegum / cotton candy notes in the aroma with some herbal hops. Medium plus body. Juicy (tropical fruits, mango, pineapple) and candy flavor but actually fairly hoppy. Well balanced. Some grassy notes but honestly an explosion of juicy fruits. Chill fucken rew. Probably a grate beer for beer pong and/or beer bong.
