MelvinKalksma (690) - 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.

karpik (461) - Sosnowiec, POLAND - MAR 31, 2016
Peach, apricot, banana, some bubblegum in aroma. Pours golden with white head. Taste is medium sweet with peach, spices and maltiness. Alcohol well covered, only noticeable at the finish. Very drinkable considering high ABV%. Overall average Tripel but it means this is very fine beer!

alteregoo (711) - POLAND - MAR 27, 2016
Piana obfita, po chwili opada jednak do obrączki. Barwa ciemno złota, mętna z drobinkami drożdżowymi. Aromat klasycznie estrowy i fenolowy, z dominującą brzoskwinią, jasnym winogronem, czerwonym pieprzem i żelazistym angielskim chmielem. W smaku słodko, głównie kandyzowane owoce, rodzynki, kwiaty akacji, likier morelowy. Goryczka pikantna, podbijana lekko rozpuszczalnikowym alkoholem. Lekko cierpkie w posmaku, pozostawia uczucie "drętwego języka". Wysokie, drobne nagazowanie.
Ot przeciętny, mocny tripel z Belgii ze słabo ukrytym alkoholem. Nic nadzwyczajnego, a mimo to jednak fajnie się go pije...

Gaelic (130) - Rotterdam, NETHERLANDS - FEB 27, 2016
Orange, amber coloured triple. I smell figs, raisins, bitter orange, grapefruit. tickling bitters on the tongue. Good balanced and well drinkable despite the 10 %.

kapusil (1051) - Budapest, HUNGARY - FEB 1, 2016
0.33l bottle. Deep golden body, huge white head. Aroma of bread, hay, pears, floral hops and some chamoagne yeast. Taste of bread, orange zest, floral hops and honey. Medium bodied and sweet, but the finish is quite bitter. Very nice beer.

bartlebier (3213) - Belchium im Biersgau, GERMANY - JAN 31, 2016
33cl bottle at Biere mit Stil 1: Worldwide Tripel Tasting@Bierhandlung Freiburg JAN2016. - Very headstrong W-Fl tripel, full of hop and other spices, taking it into speculatius/ginger cake extremes: cinnamon, white pepper, mace, vanilla. Sweet honeybread body, spiked with all of those phenols. Pretty unique and memorable within the style - not an instant favourite.

nealblind (1602) - Seattle, Alabama, USA - JAN 14, 2016
Orange gold pour creamy head. Aroma apples old hops, honey, barley. A little stale. Tastes rustic whole wheat grain firm bitter. grain flavor softens big booze. some clove. appley flavor overrides a lot of the good flavors though, oversimplifying it.

Moebbels (661) - FINLAND - DEC 31, 2015
A fairly clear orange body with small spheres of yeast floating around. The large, fluffy white head settles to a thin layer and leaves lacing on the glass. Nose has sweet notes of figs, raisins, spices, banana and sherry. Taste is sweet with a nice lingering bitter aftertaste. Medium carbonation and rich palate with some warmth. Quite nice and well balanced tripel with nice aromas.

750ml bottle. Pours clear gold with thin white film of bubbles. Aroma is yeast, a little alcohol, caramel and dough. Slightly alcoholic taste, bitter, fine smooth carbonation. Yeast and bread after taste.
