Taster at Balthazar. Blond/hay, quickly fading white head, quite hazy. Aroma is really somewhere between citrus, grass and ammonia (!). Not sure if the latter is good. Taste is pretty .... actually surprisingly straightforward, when considering the rest : there is honey, raisins, hay and fruit esters.... pretty much everything for everyone, not just sure if everything blends that well. The key here is the palate -- it would seem like the finish hits really early (... and extremely dry), but then the post-finish (!!!) hits with some really subtle, but extremely pleasant cherry notes. All in all -- nor for anyone, and a bit of a letdown considering it’s DDC, but still a rather good and very complex brew.

Bierdimpfe (501) - Quebec, CANADA - OCT 22, 2016
Cloudy gold color with storming multi-speed and layered activity. Thick frothy and rocky beige 3-4 finger island head, lasting around 15 minutes, with thick legs. Flavors of pineapple, mango, lemon, clove, sweet grains, honey, coriander, peppercorn, floral and herbal spices. Juicy tropical fruits sweetness with delicate grassy bitterness. Slick oily full body with prickly and zesty carbonation. Strong finish, a little dry yet the alcohol is well hidden, lingering orange and citrus hops, some grass and pine, with thick sweet malts and a floral bouquet. Delicious flavors, bold and filling, yet quite fresh. Good balance and intensity, complex, although feels more like a Belgian IPA than actual Tripel. Overall excellent quality craft.

Couleur blond trouble. Nez fruité un peu fermé. Bouche sur les fruits exotiques, litchi. Malt, houblon. Quelque chose de laiteux. Proche d’un malt belge. Pas mal et puissant.

Cunningham (7049) - Halden, NORWAY - OCT 3, 2016
Lovely tasty stuff. Dangerously well masked alcohol.
Hazy pale golden color with a fine white head. Nice intensity in the aroma. Medium to full body and a fine carbonation level. Moderate ok acidity and a balanced sweetness. Fruity, citric, some yeast and some spices. Lovely stuff.

Hopmaestro (1306) - Örebro, SWEDEN - SEP 14, 2016
Aroma is really exciting, full of lemongrass, dried fruits, pineapple and yeast. Taste is really crisp and refreshing. Herbal and sweet fruity with apricots and citrus taking the lead. Slight marzipan and spice notes in the end. There’s pretty much going on in here, and this might not be your regular tripel, but I don’t care - it’s a lot more tastier.
