Herb beer with positive taste evolution due to refermentation on the bottle. Spiced with garlic.

The original Jessenhofke, now with the ’Tripel’ added, spiced with garlic. Creamy, medium thick, sticky, off-white head, orangey peach blonde colour with brownish hue, cloudy. Fruity and yeasty nose, orange, honey, mint, melon, coriander, brown sugar, no garlic at all (which is fortunate, perhaps). Restrained fruity taste, mineral-like with medium carbonation, light maltiness, subdued spiciness, dryer in the finish with some resinous, herbal hops and warming alcohol, and again the garlic is unnoticeable. Perhaps it should have been more prominent, then this beer would have been less boring.

Een tripel waar net iets te weinig smaak aan is voor mijn goesting. Jammer maar dan zijn er betere

33cl bottle. Upon opening, the beer slowly gushes out after a minute. Pours a beautiful lasting head though. Taste is dry, but kinda boring. Too mild, not even hoppy nor bitter. What is this about? To please the mass consumers who love their usual beerlemonade? The aroma is also not as a triple should be. Good for one drink during a cheese night. But it sure looks beautiful. I can give you that. Now the brewer has to work on unique flavours to loose the sheep character.

33cl @home . Bij het openen kwam mij de schuim al tegenmoet , geen spuiter maar scheelt niet veel . Ingeschonken mooie witte schuimkraag die al vlug verdwijnt. Smaak is voor mij iets te bitter voor een trippel . Geen slecht bier voor op terras mocht er niks beter op de kaart staan maar zeker geen hoogvlieger . ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

33cl Bottle from EkoPlaza. As TRPL. Slightly hazy golden colour, white head. Aroma of garlic, floral notes, pale malts, fruity. Flavour of garlic, malts, nice sweet floral touch, firm bitter finish. Medium-bodied, firm carbonation. How is this beer any different from their Pimpernelle? Btw garlic in beer is not a good idea IMHO.

Ordinary tripel. Bit more watery and than the usual one. Not very interesting.

Maakun (684) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - JAN 16, 2014
Clear golden with bubbly, medium sized head. Grassy, some yeast, unripe vegetables, lemon, herbs, light malts and lots of herbal hops. Taste is a bit sweet with quite of lot of bitter. Medium bodied, full carbonation. Not a typical triple, quite OK, but slighty to ’green’ tasting for me.
