De aanduiding Tripel verwijst van oudsher naar de zwaarte van het bier. Brouwerijen gaven het bier met het hoogste alcoholpercentage deze naam mee om het te onderscheiden van de andere bieren. Daarnaast had je dan nog de Dubbel met een wat bescheidener karakter. Tegenwoordig is Hertog Jan Tripel niet meer ons zwaarste bier. Maar het is niettemin zeer krachtig en heeft alles wat u van een Tripel verlangt. Het is mooi blond van kleur en moutig tot zoet van smaak. Met een zachte bitterheid en een palet van fruit.

The description of this beer says that the only reason a tripel is called a tripel has to do with the alcohol percentage (instead of the ingredients...) Well this is definitely what Hertog Jan thinks a tripel should be; nothing more than a higher alcohol percentage, which I think is dull and boring. I’m drinking beer because of the taste not because I’m a homeless alcoholic.

Beter dan ik had verwacht. Mooi goudoranje bier met een witte schuimkraag die snel wegzakt. Lekker fruitige geur en een goed gebalanceerde, zachte, licht alcoholische smaak. Niet zo bitter als andere tripels, daar houd ik wel van.

hawthorne00 (2876) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - MAY 22, 2015
Bottle, 12C (a little colder would have been better). Deep gold with a white head that fades but laces OK. Aroma of oranges, hay, dough, flowers, mild spices. Carbonation is on the low side for a tripel and it’s rather sweet and a bit syrupy with hay and honey, dough, oranges, cloves. Just leans enough towards dry at the moderately bitter finish. Spices creep up a tad after a while. Fair enough.
