Big Nose est brassée dans le style Triple à partir de malt d’orge Pilsner, Pale Ale et Munich. Cette bière de dégustation est produite avec une quantité généreuse de houblons Nugget et Willamette. Afin d’intensifier les notes aromatiques, la bière est infusée à froid (dry-hopping) avec du houblon alsacien Triskel pendant sa maturation. Cette blonde dorée se caractérise par une structure gustative complexe dont la puissance et l’équilibre raviront vos sens. Big Nose is a Belgian Triple brewed by Emanuele Corazzini from Pilsner, Pale Ale and Munich barley malts. Nugget and Willamette hops are used in the kettle. Fermentation with a Belgian yeast strain and dry-hopping with Triskel from Alsace produce great aromatic complexity. Powerful yet delicate with a long aftertaste, this golden triple beer will make the perfect evening treat. Cheers!

kkarpfen (26) - - MAY 16, 2015
Cloudy amber body with decent off-white head. Smells very hoppy and a bit like toasted bread. Taste is moderately bitter, very hoppy but also somewhat sweet. Does not taste very alcoholic, although it has 9% ABV. Medium to full body, creamy texture, soft carbonation. Long, pleasantly bitter aftertaste, a bit astringent. Nice.

Scopey (8544) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 2, 2015
Bottle at Bier Circus. It pours lightly hazy golden-amber with a thick white head. The nose is sweet, juicy, stewed orange, apple, candy, pear and candy. The taste is bitter-sweet, juicy, apple, pear, doughy, icing sugar, candy, cereal and toasty grainy with a dry finish. Medium body and moderate carbonation. Not too sweet and rather drinkable. A very good tripel.

Fin (8199) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - MAR 20, 2015
Bottle at Hoppy Loft, Brussels, Thursday 19th March 2015 A pretty decent Triple, that was until I did some weird balancing move with beer and hand and somehow managed to knock 3/4 of my beer over the floor. Even now I cannot see quite what I was doing, Loz looked at me and said ’what did you do that for’? as though beer chucking was a now a new pastime of mine. Anyway I hadn’t yet rated it and with none left I can’t now, but trust me it was pleasant. A6 A4 T7 P3 Ov13 3.3

Ysok02 (274) - MOns, BELGIUM - JAN 8, 2015
Robe blonde reflets ambrés. Nez puissant sur de belles notes houblonnées et maltées sur un fond épicé, touche de miel et de levure. Bouche à l’attaque ample, une bulle crémeuse, une très belle amertume, et une longue finale épicée. Un belle bière digeste et épicée.

Alengrin (3029) - BELGIUM - NOV 30, 2014
UPDATED: DEC 14, 2014 Tripel from the NovaBirra beer company brewed at De Ranke. Stable, sticky, off-white head over a clear, deep orange blonde beer. Aroma of grapefruit, orange peel, peach, grass, pineapple, strawberry and caramel; fruity taste with sharpish carbonation, peachy, mango, caramelly malts, spicy yeastiness, quite long finish of grassy hop bitterishness, a bit citrussy. More than decent.
