Many thanks to kappldav123 for this bottle. The beer starts smooth and alcoholic-sharp. Not too sweet, more bitter with the nice blond and typical Abbey-Tripel sweetness. Till the end the beer gets more dry and bitter, the sweetness is still present, but a bitter-sry and slightly sharp aroma is dominating. On The tongue remains a sweetish-smooth and bitter-sharp flavour. Interesting, but a bit unround.

Alengrin (2464) - BELGIUM - OCT 19, 2014
I was very surprised to learn that a thoroughly Belgian, top-fermented beer style is apparently made in Germany, as this is the closest beer they have to a trappist ale, made by Bitburger for the Mariawald abbey in the Eiffel region, Germany’s only trappist abbey. Named after the 15th-century founder of the abbey, this beer indeed presents itself in much the same way as any Belgian abbey tripel would: yellowish pale beige, thinnish and eventually breaking head of somewhat irregular structure, a deep and warm orange blond colour with small yeast flakes floating around everywhere even after careful pouring; an aroma of toasted bread, cookie dough, candied orange, bourbon, hazelnut, grass, dust, mango, tomato, tobacco, banana, butterscotch, vanilla; and a fruity, malt sweet taste, with full and fluffy, soft mouthfeel, a bit oily, peach-like fruitiness in the onset, caramelly and nutty malt sweetness, a bit toasted in the end with a yeasty and herbally hop bitterish finish, through which some gin-like, warming alcohol pierces without becoming astringent. Tasted blind, I would have identified this as being Belgian, but certainly not as being German. Putting beer culture stereotypes aside, I think this is indeed a very fine and decent tripel. Surprising find, thanks to Filip for bringing me the bottle all the way from Germany.

0.33l bottle from trade with and courtesy of kappldav123. Thanks man! In the glass this is a cloudy deep dark golden one - almost a little copper colored and it has a nice big lasting off-white and lacing head. It’s also loaded with a ton of floaters and sediments swimming about in the glass. On the one I get a good amount of dark caramel sweetness combined with grains, floral water, soft metal, a nice dark fruitiness and hints of alcohol. It has a kinda sticky and oily feeling in the mouth and it’s just about average on the big bubbles. Tastes nice. Kinda on the sweeter side of the scale I will say. Lots of sweet fruit elements here with caramel and a nice nit to sharp warming alcohol tingling in the aftertaste. A nice not to complicated trippel. Thanks for the bottle! 10.05.2014

Hefig herber Beginn, deutlich herb. Wenig aromatischer Mittelteil, weiterhin leicht herb und minimal alkoholisch, starke Karbonisierung. Hefiger, leicht süßer Abgang, dann aber schnell trocken, brotig. 10/11/11/11/7/11

33cl bottle at Lobbes. Hazy yellow with a full white head. Medium body with ditto carbonation. Grass, alcohol, citrus, malts and hops. A bit to sweet.

Tayeth (279) - North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - APR 30, 2014
Das Aroma ist angenehm süß, das Bier duftet nach frischem Hefebrot, Banane, Contreau und Mandarinen. Der Geschmack ist zunächst sehr mild, fast cremig, der Alkohol und eine etwas störende Bittere kommen erst im Nachgang zur Geltung.

Geruch nach Karamell, Alkohol und ein Hauch grüner Apfel. Im Antrunk leichte Süße und Karamell, ansonsten recht trocken. Ein bisschen kantig, MHD wäre aber auch 03/2016, gehe davon aus, dass es erst 2 Monate alt ist. Grundsolide, dadurch ein bisschen langweilig, macht aber Hoffnung auf ein mutigeres Bitburger.

The bottle looks really interesting. Beer in the glass zippy, modest turbid, nice head. Malty aroma, modest alcoholic. Starts very strong, light alcoholic notes, not too much. Quite malty with fruity notes of apricot. Modest sourish. Strong-spicy finish, a bit metallically. All in all quite balanced and quite drinkable for its strength. An interesting beer!

GSAP (529) - NETHERLANDS - DEC 13, 2013
Pracht kado van meester-rater Mutz. Delicate tripel, zacht en soepel, waarbij de smaak pingpongt van zoet gedroogd fruit naar sinaasappel bitter-fris, waarvan de laatste flink doortrekt in de afdronk, zoals het witte velletje van een citrusvrucht smaakt . Aroma is minder sterk met neiging naar zoet, zelfs ietwat chemisch.

UPDATED: JUL 19, 2014 Flesje is gekocht in de Mariawald abdij bij Heimbach. Op de bodem ligt een laag bezinksel dus voorzichtig ingeschonken. Gouden kleur en een mooie witte kraag die lang blijft liggen. Ruikt gistig en fruitig. De smaak is zacht, gist , beetje bitter, wat meer zoet, sinaasappel, vaag kruidig. Afdronk is ook zacht. Goed te drinken maar eigenlijk iets te zoet en te zacht voor mijn smaak.
