DraftDodger (839) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - DEC 12, 2015
Amsterdam 12/12 2015. 33 cl bottle at Der Melkweg. Superbly overpriced. Pours slightly hazy golden yellow with white head. Settles as 0,5 cm thick layer of foam. Aroma of yeast, citrus, honey with a touch of sourness. Medium carbonation and slightly oily palate. Taste is yeasty with sweet notes of banana, citrus grass and something a little bit smoked. Sourish and lightly bitter aftertaste. Nice if slightly generic triple.

Batavi (306) - Waalwijk, NETHERLANDS - DEC 6, 2015
Uitgeschonken in 25 cl. Leffe bokaal. Troebel oranjeachtig bier met een volle witte schuimkraag die zich wel weer terugtrekt, schuim blijft plakken aan de binnenkant van het glas. Het aroma is zoet en kruidig met tonen van: banaan, koriander, kruidnagel, sinaasappelschil, en Belgische gist. Typische kruidige tripel smaak, met zoete tonen van banaan en karamel. Verder de kruidige smaken van koriander, kruidnagel, vanille, sinaasappelschil en een licht peperige, verwarmende afdronk. De Tripel is een van de beste bieren van Leffe, mooie balans tussen sterk kruidig, zoet en lichte hopbitterheid. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

hauxe (262) - Butzbach, GERMANY - NOV 15, 2015
dry, warm taste, with a rich, creamy head that lingers. Dark gold, medium-bodied, moderate carbonation that flattens slightly as you progress. Hints of banana on the tongue. Subdued lightly fruity aromas. Alcohol taste strenghtens near the end. Warming. Not the most subtle or complex beer, but very pleasant sipping nonethelss on a cool night.
