2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Clear yellow, fluffy white foam head. Barley aroma and taste. Not the usual triple taste, just a normal pilsener to me. (Velp 201502)

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
33cl bottle bb06/2017, De Hopduvel. What even is a "low-alcohol tripel"? Aroma all about yellow apple and unripe banana. Taste a muddled affair and morose rendition of aroma, aspartame-like. Half-ready test tube feel to this curtailed beer.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Blonde dorée claire, effervescence moyenne-faible, col blanc moyen. Malts clairs dont celui de la pils, amertume moyenne et légèrement épicée. Quel intérêt de créer une "low alcohol triple" (comme annoncé sur l’étiquette) si on a juste l’impression de boire une simple pils?

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Light amber, fruity slightly appley aroma, clean taste, almost lagerlike but then a few floral phenol notes come in. Actually kind if like this one.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle, from the Craft Beer Advent Calendar, not sure which day. Medium golden, average white head, a little hazy. Sweet grains, gentle esters, quite boring. My expectations were very high for some reason, so this is disproportionately disappointing.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours clear pale yellow with small bubbly head. Fresh aroma of Belgian yeast with a bit of a sourness. Body is very light, taste is refreshing and very simple with a hint of a Belgian tripel. Sort of a very very light, watered down tripel.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Light orange body, not much head or lacing. Light bubblegum sweet fruit aroma. Taste is very slight sweetness and bitter medicinal aftertaste, minerally, watery. Not good.

2.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 5/20
330 ml bottle. Pours a light copper color with full head that settles quickly. Light aromas of grain, corn, and biscuity malts. Flavors of corn sugar and toasted malts. Very similar flavor to some non alcoholic grocery store beers.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle to pint glass
Yeast, bread, a little sourness, currant, and molasses. Very pale amber, with a 1/2 cm creamy head with huge retention. This glass has been sitting for a 1/2 hour and the head is still there. Taste is hay, straw, yeast, malts, late bitterness. A little watery and chalky.
