Svesse (7765) - Hässelby, - SEP 5, 2012
(Draught at Chez Moeder Lambic Fontainas, Brussels, 20 July 2012) Hazy yellow colour with frothy, white head. Fruity, malty nose with grainy malt, citrus and grassy hops. Malty, fruity taste with notes of grainy malt, citrus, tropical fruit and a fresh grassy bitterness in the finish. Almost full body, with a certain sweetness. Quite bitter and solid tripel. Nice one.

ulrikolsen (268) - 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.

zacgillbanks (4376) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - AUG 18, 2016
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.

alteregoo (853) - POLAND - AUG 5, 2016
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...

Waaay too bitter for the style. It's unfortunate that this love for hops has taken over other styles. Moeder Brussels. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

330ml bottle. Light floral and orange peel aroma. Pours a cloudy dark yellow with a frothy off-white head and good lacing. Lemon, lime and orange citrus flavours with notes of coriander, pepper and cloves. Full bodied with some warming alcohol sensation. Long bitter citrus finish.

heavy (2739) - Split, CROATIA - JUL 16, 2016
May ’16. A 0.33 l bottle. It poured hazy pale yellow body with medium sized head. A sharp tripel aroma - apple, orange, vanilla, coriander, alcohol. Flavor was bitter, apple, grass, coriander, citrus, grainy with a touch of alcohol. A fine balance of it all, really pleasant. Full bodied with long bitter finish, like lemon and orange peel. At the very end it became papery dry, but not in the bad way. Very good!

Maakun (3567) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - JUL 15, 2016
Bottle at home. Slight hazy light golden with big white head. Pils malts, flowery, honey, light lime, coriander, spicy yeast, soft milky and creamy. Over medium bitter and almost medium sweet. Bit over medium bodied with creamy feel and soft fizzy carbonation. Nice beer but a bit too bitter and flowery for me, nice mouthfeel though.

Yeast, citrus, malts, golden qith a not very persistant white head, medium body, medium carbonation, again citrus but also an hoppy and bitter profile instead the typical tripel sweetness that i love...maybe not a victory but a spark of revolution in this classic belgian style; good job old man.
