On draft at Delirium Cafe, Brussels. I’ve had this beer several times (and was pretty sure I’d rated it before) but nothing like super-fresh and close to the source. Excellent bartender encouraged me to go for a couple brews from Rulles on the strength of their freshness and hop profile, and the tripel convinced me of his rightness. Golden-orange pour, light and frothy, with a strong dose of bright hops and yeast in the nose. Nothing heavy or estery about it though, just fresh and grassy. Really enjoyed this.

zinneke (108) - Brussels, BELGIUM - MAY 29, 2015
Top Belgian tripel. Aroma of hops, malts and yeast, the way it should be. All well balanced, no offflavors. Very floral and grainy, quite rustic smell to it. Taste is decent tripel, where again hop malts and yeast are so balanced. Mild bitterness, toasted grainy aftertaste and a nice yeasty aftertaste (orval yeast i think). Hops are typical for the Ardenne brews, very floral and grassy. After drinking a lot of IPA’s or RIS or Pepper infused salted smoked dingdong beers, a good Belgian tripel wil ALways stand out. This one is for me one of the best Belgian tripels.

Pours hazy light golden with white rocky head. Aroma is banana, porridge, smoke and pineapple. Sweetish, soft, light. Short-lasting finish.

paologalloni (153) - ITALY - MAY 22, 2015
Always in bottle. To it’s a benchmark of triple beer style although with some rustic aspects that make it somehow peculiar. Aspect is deep orange with white wonderfully persistent creamy head. Aroma is basically, cereal, floral and fruity. Flavour again is fruity with honey notes but capable to be dry

Tap @ Delirium Café, Brussels 150514. Fruity, yeasty and spicy with estery notes, medium body with an oily texture. The finish is dry and yeasty with estery notes.

aleksander9 (702) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAY 8, 2015
La rulles triple was one of my go-to-beers 5 years ago. I was hence happy to see it again in Norway to finally rate it. Hazy orange with white head. Belgian spice, caramel, pepper, saison, floral and yeast. Dry, fruity and spicy finish. Overall: Some really interesting Belgian, spicy alcohol and noble hops flavors. Probably pairs well with food.

Hanoi (573) - Greater Manchester, ENGLAND - APR 25, 2015
Bottle. Nose is grain, straw, belgian yeast, suprisingly light on the esters (for the style - still present) some saison like funk, more straw. Taste is grain, straw, funk, herbal and floral hop notes, pepper and corriander, spice, biscuit, a sweet honey note and a funky finish with emergin fruits as it warms. An emerging mandarin citrus note lifts the be. It tastes like a triple mixed with a Saision, which fits perfectly with the Rulles range with a rustic style. I love brewers which have the ability to shape styles to their templates.

sonotono (88) - torino, ITALY - MAR 31, 2015
Colore dorato, bella schiuma. Odore molto fruttato, zucchero caramellato, molto leggero erbaceo. Sapore dolce, malto e caramello, alcool ben nascosto, finale amaro. Ottimo bilanciamento di sapori dolce/amaro, ottima birra.

Ambrée trouble, effervescence moyenne, col blanc moyen crémeux, nuageux et de bonne tenue. Principalement maltée, caramel, légèrement fruitée, bonne petite amertume houblonnée par la suite.

30/I/15 - 75cl bottle from De Hopduvel (Gent) @ home - BB: IV/2016 (2015-121)

Clear dark blond beer, huge fluffy to creamy white head, pretty stable, adhesive, leaving a nice lacing in the glass. Aroma: spicy, pretty fruity, floral, peaches, yeasty touch, cloves. MF: ok carbon, medium to full body. Taste: pretty spicy, quite some cloves, some overripe fruits, bit sweet, little bitter. Aftertaste: spicy, cloves, little sweet, some banana. Decent, but not their best.
