3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Flaske: Orangegul let diset øl medet fint skumhoved. Duft af makro og lidt gær. Smagen er en del bedre men s
tadig skuffende for en tripel. I det hele taget er dette nok den mest undervurderet stil hvor folk laver mest ligegyldig øl.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Labelled Jopen Jubeljoop III.
Cool, not cold and into a shallow chalice. Produced up a hazy, orange gold with a bad case of the floaties and tightly carbonated. Snow-white head is compact, creamy and satin sheened managing a very lace. Complex though not altogether enticing aroma of sawdust, almond meal, mango and pawpaw fruit, coriander, alcohol spice, fish sauce, plastic and freshly flared matchsticks. Creamy and rounded in mouthfeel, quite firm, doughy and yeasty. Strong flavour of mango and overripe melons, very spicy in back with a clean and extremely short finish. The sawdust comes through in the flavour too with an odd artificial sugar note aiding the fruit esters. Not much here. The alcohol’s restrained, and with little length it lacks in the ’quiet contemplation’ department. Still,an easy drinking number! (33cL, BB 27/01/12, Cellarbrations Carlisle)

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
How I was looking forward to try this one. And I wasn’t disappointed. Nice murky golden colour with a bit of sediment in the bottom of the bottle. Aroma has hints of grapes, wheat and malt. Alcohol is covered in the aroma but warming in the flavour. Flavour is incredibly citrus and typical for a good tripel, the grains make it a bit more dry and sweet. Good find.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottled from Mitra, Naarden. Hazy golden colored, thick white head, looks good. Spicy and somewhat hoppy nose, fruity notes as well, some lemon, still good. Pretty disappointing flavor though, weak hoppy, soapy, some sugars, dry and bitter in an unpleasant way. I love the Jopen Hoppenbier (which this tripel is apparently based on), and i must say the beer gets a bit better after a few sips, but in flavor this one still falls short.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
My label is the same as the picture: Jopen Jubeljoop III. Never seen it any other way. Some floating bits in the amber colored pour. Looks like gelatin or something with the floaties in there. Small pools of white bubbles sit on top, with spots of them attaching to the glass. Big aroma of alcohol and sugar. Sweet malty taste with some hints of raisins and sugar. A little too sweet, but takes away from the blah aroma. Not as bad as I thought it would be.

3.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Darker yellow with decent white foam head, lasting and lacing to glass. Aroma is weak hoppy, taste is nice bitter. Long lasting bitter aftertaste, some minty on top of tongue. (Velp 201208)
