BlackHaddock (4144) - 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.

DutchMark (194) - NETHERLANDS - DEC 2, 2014
Nice clear golden triple. Small white head and moderate carbonation. Body is slightly thin. Flavor is mostly sweet malts and yeast with some spicy fruityness added. Alcohol is clearly present but does not make it boozy. Not a remarkable triple but well done and eady to drink.

eduardovl (962) - SWITZERLAND - OCT 14, 2014
UPDATED: DEC 2, 2014 0.33l bottle poured in a its own chalice A: Nice cloudy yellow-gold color with a huge fluffy white head. Great retention. It disappears leaving a lot of lacings S: Sweet. Strong dark fruits smell. Grapes and plums are evident. Also malts, cloves, honey and the traditional Belgium yeasts. Alcohol can be felt in the end (Reminds a liquor made of apricots or plums) T: Again grapes and plums. Sweet as a good Belgium Triple should be with a nice bitter end. Reminds me a Strong Ale like Duvel but more molasses and spicy M: Creamy full body with a high carbonation D: Good. Delicious Triple. Recommended [ BA Review @ 6/3/2010 ]

Alengrin (2463) - 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.
