Alengrin (1380) - BELGIUM - AUG 19, 2014
Tasted in its regular form and in the limited 75 cl-edition with cork which was marketed as Grimbergen Speciale Tripel / Spéciale Triple 2005 Limited Edition, which was the same beer. Creamy, yellowish white, sticky head, colour orange blonde, clear. Fruity aroma, apple, pineapple, orange, caramel, corn, iron, honey, vanilla, hay, sweet white wine. Sweet orangey and honeyish basic taste, smooth, artificial, light grassy hops in the finish but not nearly enough to balance out the cloying sweetness and alcoholic too, with a somewhat wry effect. Too sweet and too bland.

VDuquerroux (270) - Airvault, FRANCE - AUG 17, 2014
Bottle, 33cL. Home. A clear dark golden beer with many small bubbles. Huge white head. Good retention. Aroma of herbs, caramel, spices, fruit. Medium sugary sweet with a warming note. Light bitter. Medium body, silky texture, medium carbonation, lasting sweet finish. Overall, a really good spicy "triple", nice balance.

mikske79 (1120) - Puerto Plata, DOMINICAN REPUBLIC - AUG 8, 2014
Een tripel zoals een tripel hoort te zijn. Geen absolute topper, maar wel een goeie tripel

Golden color with white foamy head, odor slightly fruity, Tastes very sweet, kind of bread, you can taste the yeast and some fruit, Average carbonation. Overalls still a good triple beer.

Daanminator (81) - Waalwijk, NETHERLANDS - JUL 12, 2014
Wat een heerlijke tripel. Mooie flinke schuimlaag, zacht mondgevoel en een bloemige afdronk.

StuartC (28) - Lochgilphead, Argyll, SCOTLAND - JUN 25, 2014
Bottle from Fyne Wines, Argyll. Burnished lemon-gold colour with a good solid long-lasting head. Deliciously sweet-ish tropical fruit-salad aromas; prominent flavours of white pepper, melon and lychee initially dominate palate but eventually soften to reveal notes of stewed pears and honeycomb. I should write more, but frankly I enjoyed this beer too much to concentrate on writing! Easy drinking, but at 9%abv is almost too dangerous for everyday...
