On tap at Lord Hobo - Cambridge, MA. Zesty, spiced and somewhat woody. Flavors are solid, warming, and rich. There’s an edge of harshness to the phenols that makes this a little tough to get through and that’s a character of many Belgian yeast-fermented North American examples that I always have trouble with. Finishes spicy with a bit of cream undertone. Good, clean, and complex, but the yeast character was missing the soft, roundness I look for.

Una buona tripel, maltata, mielosa, fruttata e corposa. Buona struttura e gusto non banale, molto equilibrata. Merita!

Franckg (648) - Trois-Rivières, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 22, 2015
Robe dorée trouble avec un mince col de mousse. Arômes de pommes fermentées, pêche, alcool, épices et coriandre. Un léger malt sucré en arrière-plan. En bouche, saveurs de sucre de fruits, alcool et coriandre. Pointes de clou de girofle, pain frais venant des levures, citron et orange. Goût doux en général. Légères traces de poivre moulu, un peu herbacé. Texture moyennement épaisse, bon corps soutenue. Une tripel bien construite.

Bottle @ BVery’s. Gold pour with a small white head. Nose of honeyed cereal. Mellow toasted bread and nuts. Pretty delicate aroma. Some apricot. The flavor is a bit hot. Substantial. Some vanilla. Oily and rich. Mellow, light toasty bitterness. Full bodied. Not flashy, but quite enjoyable.

JorisPPattyn (8795) - Ursel, BELGIUM - NOV 11, 2015
Fine yellowish head on dark golden beer. Fruity nose, with some ureum. Mouth reveals alcohol, caramel and yeast features, estery. The beer seems underattenuated, and gives the impression of not being fermented out completely, despite the alcoholpresence.

DomD (196) - Halifax, Nova Scotia, CANADA - OCT 10, 2015
Poured from bottle. Aromas are not very strong, but seem to be candied fruit and spices. Pours a clear golden with amber hue and white head. Taste is medium sweet. Medium to full bodied, slick texture, and soft carbonation make for a nice mouth feel. Very enjoyable, but watch out it the alcohol will sneak up on you.

malrubius (2241) - Springfield, Vermont, USA - AUG 31, 2015
Bottle from Brewfest. Orange gold with lasting head and lace. Lemon spice bread herbal vanilla aroma with very mild alcohol. Vanilla tropical fruity sweetness with some bready grassy grains and herbal bitterness that lingers but not too long. Very soft medium full body soft inner carb and creamy as a mutherfucker. Complex and amazingly delicous. I usually prefer 8.5-9 abv...but woe is me. This is an amazing beer. Love it when someone on this side of the pond gets the tripel right. Wicked fucking excellent.
