COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

orange, amber, hazy, lightly sour, flat, light body. No foam top. Not bad but it’s got nothing special.

Hazy golden body with a nice white head. Aroma is malt, spice, bread and alcohol. Taste is sweet and a bit boozy.

tfredvik (1120) - Oslo, NORWAY - JUL 30, 2014
Too bad I’m not rating the looks of the bottle, because this one is a real beauty! The contents, however, is quite ordinary: it pours a slightly hazy, medium golden body with some visible small particles, crowned by an off-white, short-lived head that laces the glass ok. The aroma is strong, sweet and sugary, with notes of pale malts, white sugar, Belgian yeast, spices and honey, alcohol in the back. Strong flavour of pale malts, lots of white sugar, Belgian yeast, sweet fruits, apple, spices and alcohol. The taste is heavy sweet with a fairly long-lasting, light bitter finish. The mouthfeel suffers a bit from the sweetness, it almost gets a bit cloying. The body is close to full, the texture is oily and the carbonation is unusually soft for the style. Not bad, but far from my favourite tripel.
[50 cl ceramic bottle, enjoyed 17 months before BB date, from Spar Lønstrup, Jylland, Denmark]

Grzesiek79 (3203) - Radom, POLAND - JUN 24, 2014
Black Stone Bottle. Takie sobie piwo, powiem ze butelka z kamionki i korek oraz zgrabna etykieta robia wieksze wrazenie niz smak czy wyglad piwa. Piana wcale prawie sie nie tworzy, praktyczny brak metnosci, kolor amber gold, slodki karmelowy i nieco alkoholowy, wyczuwalny slod i alkohol. Brak tu czegos co by rownowazylo ten smak zwlaszcza alkoholu. Opis na etykiecie dokladny i nadajacy prestizu, ale pozory i opakowanie czasem myla.

Jar from the Nettorama. The beer has a dark golden color and a small white head, CO2 level is a little low. In the aroma tones of tropical fruits, spices and the sweetness of honey. The taste is fruity with tones of lemon and light sweet from the caramel. The finish is dry with a light bitterness.

This Triple beer is a classic style triple. Golden beer with a bright white head. High carbonation. Malty aroma. Taste of malts, koriander and citrus fruit notes combined with a dry medium bitter finish.

JulienHuxley (3046) - Hilversum, NETHERLANDS - MAR 16, 2014
Bottle from Jumbo. Hazy dark gold pour with thin white head. Aroma is malty, fruity aromas, light coriander, quite grainy actually. Taste is semi-sweet, malty, light bitter finish. Palate is med-full bodied with slightly low carbonation. Nice enough beer, never cloying but a bit forgettable.
