martjoobolut (3005) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - AUG 7, 2016
Bottle (from some webshop). Pours dark golden with whiteish head. The head stays. Aroma is fresh fruits, yeast, some citrus, pears, sugar. Flavor is sweet and bitter, fresh fruits, citrus, sugar, some spiciness. Finish is dry bitter with some alcohol warmth. Drinability is good for the ABV. Overall: very good, has the very classic Belgian feeling, which I enjoy.

Ysok02 (1004) - MOns, BELGIUM - AUG 4, 2016
Robe dorée, mousse crémeuse. Nez superbe sur des notes fruitées, agrumes, raisins de Corinthe, pointe de caramel, houblon, note levurée, très complexe. Bouche à l’attaque fruitée, bulle fine et crémeuse, belle tension, finale sur l’amertume de l’agrume qui masque le taux d’alcool. Une très belle triple à déguster avec modération étant donné la richesse alcoolique.

TET (2635) - Kaarina, FINLAND - AUG 1, 2016
An slighty orange beer, a head is small and blond. Aroma is mild. Fruitness of perries, spicyness, some bread and alcohol. Taste has fruitness, bananas, some sweetness and spicyness of peppers. Medium+ bodied, low carbonation, could be lighter. Good tripel, no problems.

KoNrRiI (1218) - Århus, DENMARK - JUL 22, 2016

0.33 bottle.
A hazy, dark orange color with a small, white head. Aroma has a yeasty character and is composed of clover, banana, and spices. Taste is sweet, obviously yeasty but pale malts feature too: peaches, other fruits, and herbs impart the brew a less clogging quality. A medium body, a creamy texture, and a soft carbonation. Finish is longish - sweet and yeasty like the rest. Overall the beer is good, hard to find any real flaws.

fajry (1534) - SLOVAK REPUBLIC - JUN 21, 2016
Fľaška. Tmavo zlatá farba, bez peny. Vôňa sladká, kvetinová, alkoholová. Chuť ostrá na jazyku, sladká, kvetinová, alkoholová. Dosť agresívny tripel.

SkillsFactory (549) - ITALY - JUN 19, 2016
Dorata carica, velata dai lieviti, schiuma bianca non molto persistente. Aroma di chiodi di garofano, miele, note balsamiche, diacetile, erbaceo. Al palato sempre miele e chiodi di garofano, finale erbaceo ed etilico. Corpo pieno, mediamente carbonata, di sicuro la bottiglia in questione ha visto giorni migliori.

Hazy amber, coarse medium head. Medium fruity malt aroma, a hint of steamed sweet potato. Medium to heavy sweet, medium bitter, yeasty, light bitter finish. Full body.

zaf (308) - ITALY - JUN 4, 2016
Una tripel classica..ottima in tutto gli aspetti..aroma di malto e con il lievito ben presente..l’aspetto è eccezionale..una schiuma fine è pannosa superlativa! Gusto dove il sentore di malto è molto spinto e il finale è bello secco..splendida

MelvinKalksma (943) - UTRECHT, NETHERLANDS - MAY 1, 2016

Aroma:
Medium aroma of malts, caramel, Belgian yeast and fruit.

Appearance:
Clear/hazy golden/amber beer with heavy yeast and with a medium off-white head.

Taste/Palate:
Medium sweet with malts, caramel, Belgian yeast and fruit.

Overall:
A good tripel with a lot of malt and Belgian yeast. This makes the beer kinda one-sided however.
