Alengrin (4529) - BELGIUM - SEP 12, 2014
De Graal version of this tripel commissioned by the Opstalse Bierpallieters for their famed Weekend of Spontaneous Fermentation, though this is obviously a top-fermented beer. No spices, but a complex malt composition including whisky malt and spelt. Medium thick head, orangey amber colour; special aroma of caramel, peach, apple, tea, hay, faint sourish grains. Sweetish fruitiness in the taste, malty, caramelly with vaguely sourish ’wheatiness’ and some vague smokiness. A bit weird, actually, but not bad.

(Backlog) at post spontaneous fermentation tasting(good idea right). Brown hazy pour with tan head. Spice, yeast and fruit aromas. Nice strong Belgian spice and flavored triple.

AdamChandler (4518) - Enfield, New Hampshire, USA - JUN 4, 2012

A - 1 finger head. Dissipates fast. Off white. SRM of 11. Dark orange appearance

S - cheese and dominant yeast. Pineapple and peaches. Funky falling off scent. Old shoe?

T - Old shoes. Hay and barnyard. Champagne yeast.

M - 90% carbonation. Lingering bitterness and caramel

O - Better fresh. This beer was once great (according to those around me). I’m rating this one on a curve of 3.5/5. I hear it’s just falling off so no need to give an ultra low rating.

Bottle at the 20th Weekend of Spontaneous Fermentation. It pours hazy golden yellow, with a thick foamy white head. The nose is metal, bread, grapefruit and pepper. The taste is grass, hay, bread, metal, honey sweetness, light caramel and lemon, with a moderate duration bitter finish. Overall it is a bit too sweet for me.

Travlr (21441) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - MAY 30, 2011
Bottle marked 20th anniversary of Bierpalletiers (was that 2009?). Clear golden color, massive off white ice cream cone head. Aroma of white pepper, straw, and decent hops. Taste is bitter throughout without being over the top. More like a Belgain IPA than a tripel.
