Douberd (2971) - Arnhem, NETHERLANDS - MAR 5, 2014
Stubby bottle, 330 ml, at home. Into a tulip glass, ABV 8% Bright golden yellow colour, a tad hazy on the body. White head, maybe two fingers tall, but froathy, with low retention. Light lacing left on the glass. Aroma of malts, sugar, some floral notes too. Taste is the same, very malty and sweet, with sugar, flowers, something old. Medium body, quite carbonated. Overall okay,nothing exciting, still drinks good.

Swaroga (1634) - Brussels, BELGIUM - JAN 5, 2014
33cl bottle. Cloudy light golden with a big head with big bubbles. NOSE : Zest and citrus are dominating the fruit aromas. Biscuit and wet hay. Sweet cheese cake. Apricot and banana. Delicate wood resin. SIP : the beer is well carbonated and has a medium body. It has a typical creamy sweet palate that carries also typical for a Triple fruity esters. The beer is well balanced and it is also dry and has a delicate bitterness on the end. The aftertaste is a bit dry and metallic alongside with zesty and sweet dominating character of that beer. OVERALL : well balanced and easy to drink. I would like more bitterness but this one is well brewed and could be perfect to accompany with food and deserts.

Bought a bottle at Bert’s Bierhuis. The beer has honey blonde color and a nice large white head, CO2 level is excellent. In the aroma tones of yeast, fruits and some herbs. it has a very nice hop taste with hints of bananas, pinapple and more fruits. The finish is smooth and soft and has a little dryness. Overall, a like it, but Belgium has better tripels.

EddyBeer1 (1011) - Brussels, BELGIUM - NOV 26, 2013
Blonde dorée opaque, effervescence moyenne-forte, col blanc abondant et persistant. Malts clairs, notes de bananes, un rien métallique, petite amertume sur la fin, plutôt douce, bien équilibrée. Une triple plus que convenable.

gouden met witte kraag
mout en citrus in het aroma, smaken zijn licht, licht zoet, citrus, koriander, gaat wel maar géén topper

Kosmokrator (517) - ITALY - SEP 9, 2013
Pallido color oro con massiccio cappello di schiuma bianca. Aroma floreale, fresco e mieloso ma non molto intenso; gusto dolciastro e leggermente erbaceo con note di miele, lievito e luppolo. Corpo medio-lieve, abbondantemente frizzante, un po’ acquosa nella struttura, abv non percepito: una tripel che colpisce poco e che, per certi versi, ricorda più una "semplice" belgian ale.

R2k2 (385) - NETHERLANDS - AUG 21, 2013
Somewhat cloudy, slightly yellow colored beer, and it has a firm layer of foam. It smells somewhat wheat-like, like a weizen-beer with a touch of banana in the back of the mouth. It has a bitter taste, but the wheat returns in the aftertaste. Dry palate. A beer to relax for it. Ietwat troebel, lichtgeel bier, met een stevige kraag. Het heeft een tarwe-achtig "weizen"aroma. En iet banaanachtigs. De smaak is vol bitter, maar in de nasaak komt het tarweachtige weer naar boven. Droge afdronk, dus Een genietbiertje
