3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Limpido color rosato scuro con sottile velo di schiuma biancastra. Al naso è dolciastra con sentori di ribes nero, toffee e qualcosa che ricorda le caramelle gommose... al palato offre un mix non particolarmente esaltante di dolce e acidulo con note fruttate, maltate e debolmente mielose. Corpo medio, effervescenza gentile, un po’ appiccicosa... Curiosa, ma andrebbe rifinita!

Smallish dirtyish beige head. Clear deep dark red body. Earthy
vaguely fruity aroma with mealy notes. Not really that much aroma.
Sweet earthy blueberry taste with herbal lingonberry notes.
Mid-to-full body. Mild, soft, mealy mouthfeel, with some heat.
Dryish earthy wooden blueberry taste with spicy toffee notes.
Interesting and different. Not sure I can see the trippel in it.
Didn’t like it at first, but it grew on me. (0.5l bottle, from wine

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
The Tiger Tripel is one of my favourite tripels (at least the batches that are not too smoky), so a cassis version should be an interesting experience! It pours a deep red body with a small, light pink head that leaves foam on the glass and that ends up as a partially covering film. Rather strong aroma of black currants, with hints of Belgian yeast and light malt. The flavour is also quite strong, and again the black currant is in front, but to my surprise it’s acidic and tart. Also vague notes of Belgian yeast, cherry pits, raspberries and white sugar in the back. Moderate sweet and moderate acidic taste with a moderate to light bitter finish. Full body, oily texture, far too soft carbonation and it all ends up quite dry. The black currants definitely makes this a completely different beer than the original tripel. Not a better beer, but different.
