ricordo una birra sullo stile tripel/ipa.. tutte quelle dello zbf sono da riassaggiare ma questa spiccava per avere tutte le caratteristiche tripel e un piacevolissimo finale amaro luppolato zbf 2013

Alengrin (3675) - BELGIUM - SEP 12, 2015
Bottle from Bezoekerscentrum De Lambiek in Alsemberg. Gusher, had to catch the beer in the glass with speed and caution but could not prevent it from overflowing. Very thick and spectacularly rocky, audibly crackling, very coarse, egg-white, irregular head leaving papery lacing but consisting of instable, large bubbles; deep yellowish golden blonde colour, clear with fierce sparkling, champagne-like, becoming a murky ochre with deposit. Aroma of sourdough, sharp redcurrant, bubblegum, mango, green apple peel, honey, peach, freshly cut nettles, gin, dried banana, rhubarb, straw, old cloth, dried and dusty old flowers, white bread, young cheese, earth. Estery onset, crisp, with lots of gooseberry, some apple peel, starfruit and Conférence pear as well as typical Belgian tripel-like banana, spritzy but a bit overcarbonated bringing a certain ’sourishness’; bready middle phase, still relatively ’light’ in view of the ABV, sweetish and just a tad caramelly but not quite, while the uncontrolled bready yeastiness dances along but somehow manages to hold back, also because of the overcarbonation; finish is continuing, simple malt sweetishness plus a deep, earthy and leafy but very effective hop bitterness as well as powdery yeastiness (especially in the end, of course) and a deep glow of warming, ’jenever’-like alcohol going down deep into the chest. I hate strong gushing and this one was a bit out of control, so I did expect a ’wild’ Belgian yeast profile and that is exactly what I got; still, there were no serious off-flavours and it does have the overall profile of a triple: malt sweet and a bit estery, with deep hoppiness and warming alcohol in the end. A bit cliché (and sweet) perhaps as I would never pick this one out of the dozens of other standard Belgian tripels, and too bad for the gushing, but otherwise quite alright and enjoyable. Probably better when it is more fresh than the bottle I got. In this form: very typically a Belgian tripel, so mission accomplished, and an extra appreciation for truth to style.

corkyrory66 (1012) - BELGIUM - OCT 20, 2014
Bière triple refermentée non filtrée de 8 % abv. Nous verrons plus tard que son classement est discutable … Elle est faite de malt d’orge et de malt de blé. Mon exemplaire est juste à date. Couleur doré soutenu brillant. Clarté nette. Bulles moyennes par centaines, très vives. Mousse blanche très épaisse avec quelques cratères en haut. Arômes de citron doux, pamplemousse, malt clair, fruits blancs, bois blanc. 1ère bouche soyeuse sur de très belles notes, avec des herbes aromatiques. Arrière-bouche bien équilibrée malt/houblon. 2ème à la texture superbe, due vraisemblablement au froment. Saveurs originales strictement à base d’herbes. Arrière-bouche à la belle amertume. 3ème bouche herbacée très originale. Arrière-bouche fraîche, nette, propre. La longueur procure un nez vraiment original. Les bouches sont avec essence de cerfeuil, persil, ciboulette dans un mélange savant, et tout à fait inédit. Les jambes sont marquées. La levure est douce, précise, pointue. L’alcool est bien progressif sur l’ensemble. La finale trouve de nouveaux créneaux, un peu sur les épices, mais toujours en moelleux. CONCLUSION : une bière de grande classe qui s’est trouvé une niche rare : la triple herbacée … Mais elle pourrait être classée dès lors en spice/herb/vegetable, puisque la catégorie existe !!!

Voor een tripel was dit een echte teleurstelling. Niet veel smaak aan dit bier.

Très bonne triple, avec des bonnes odeurs. Elle reste un peu sucrée en bouche, ce que j’adore! Je l’ai trouvé grâce a "Belgian Beer Discovery".

EddyBeer1 (1058) - Brussels, BELGIUM - MAR 14, 2014
Orange trouble-opaque, effervescence moyenne, col blanc crémeux abondant et persistant. Plutôt bien maltée au départ, fruitée à mi-course, légèrement amère à l’arrivée. De plus, elle est onctueuse, assez ronde, d’une fraîcheur printanière, le tout avec un très bon équilibre.
