BlackHaddock (3491) - Shropshire, - NOV 5, 2012
20 Oct 2012: beautiful sunny day in the Dutch tourist town of Valkenburg. We sat on some random bar terrace and the beer menu had this on it. 33cl Bottle, best before the end of July 2013: poured into a Grimbergen chalice. Good clean golden looks: full white crown at first, soon a wisp and collar. Floral hop nose with mild fruit hints and some yeast esters. The taste is an OK blend of those floral hops and some hidden malt semi-sweetness. The alcohol and yeast also play a part in ensuring this is one of brand Grimbergen’s better beers. Body depth isn’t too deep, but it does fine if you consider this as a light bodied Triple. Just above Mr Average.

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...

Golden color, initial good head. Full body, rounded and creamy, nice carbonation. Quite malty, sweet and bread. Aftertaste is abrupt, sweet and spicy.

Triple de 9 % abv d’une abbaye reconnue de 1128, ceci mérite l’examen. Le problème, c’est Alken Maes, Kronenbourg, Carlsberg … cela sonne (sans jeu de mots) moins bien... Mais on fera avec. Gaz énorme au décapsulage, on a fait tourner la machine … Il est vrai qu’elles sont grosses les machines dans l’industrie ... Couleur doré moyen brillant. Clarté pure, nette. Bulles par centaines partout, bien denses. Mousse épaisse blanche avec des cratères en haut, mais je soupçonne fortement la présence de stabilisateurs … Arômes de froment, malt, levure et une pointe citronnée. 1ère bouche douce sur des fruits blancs mûrs. Arrière-bouches avec un peu de céréales, et une pointe de menthe. Elle est longue. 2ème sur de l’abricot jeune, fraise espagnole, levure et une pointe d’agrumes. 3ème avec du gingembre, girofle, houblon amer, malt clair. La longueur est belle mais un peu aqueuse. La levure est délicate, soft, sans vraie nuance. L’alcool fait un travail correct, mais un peu chimique. La finale ne relève rien, très linéaire. CONCLUSION : cela sent la bière de grosse fabrication à plein nez, mais ce n’est pas vraiment banal. On dira correct, avec toutes les précautions d’usage sur une extrême carbonation, l’usage plus que probable d’agents stabilisants, et un goût très linéaire.

The aroma is modestly malty, some bread and dough. It does not smell inviting, however. Appearance is a white foam head that doesn’t last long. A bit sticky on the tongue, the finish is bitter and quick. Aftertaste is somewhat metally... A good beer to drink with your meal, but not special.

Doofuz (3) - NETHERLANDS - APR 8, 2014 does not count
Lichtzoet tripeltje met mooie schuimkraag. Hij is lekker van smaak maar niet de beste in zijn soort. Toch een ruime voldoende voor dit biertje.

Golden yellow colour with hefty white foam head. Aroma of Apple and light metallic. Taste is a little cider-like. Light-footed, tangy.

UPDATED: APR 15, 2014 Botella de 33 cl. Sabor dulzon, afrutado, correcto. El alcohol no se nota en boca, a pesar de su alto contenido alcoholico.
