   AROMA 5/10   APPEARANCE 4/5   TASTE 5/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 10/20
FlacoAlto (3810) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - JUN 15, 2013
A steady pour into my teku glass produces a fat-three-finger thick, pale, off-white colored head. The beer is a bright, pale amber color that shows a brilliantly clear, gold / copper hue when held up to the light. The aroma smells of sweet grain, a touch of cotton candy, vanilla scented golden raisins, sweet melon notes, and just a candied pale malt character, which means the overall effect of the nose is on the sweet and cloying side of the spectrum. This has notes of sweet corn, DMS, and just too much graininess in general here in the nose.

Definitely sweet, with a grainy, sort of corn like sweetness that lingers on the palate for way too long. Light spicy notes provide an earthiness, some definite clove flavors, a bubble gum like flavor, and a dirty coriander water note. Very little balancing hop bitterness or flavors, in fact hop notes are not really noticeable at all here. The body has a medium fullness to it, there is quite a bit of carbonation, but for whatever reason this doesn’t help too much.

This is not so different from many a Belgian ale, but it is also the type that I really don’t enjoy; sweet, unbalanced, seemingly unrefined (to my tastes), and just cloying.

minutemat (2252) - Shrewsbury, Shropshire, ENGLAND - MAY 6, 2015
330ml bottle @ Chez Sophie, Shrewsbury. Pours hazy gold with white head. An ok tripel character, light yeast and fruit esters but a little staid and lacking the sparkle of its peers.

markextrae (1847) - NETHERLANDS - MAY 4, 2015
shared sample with a friend at ZBF 15, after the (incredible) bersalis tripel oak aged. i had to try the base beer. poured a clearer blonde colour with a white head, notes of malts, citrus, cut grass, some stone fruits, peach, yeast, juicy, bit of a burned caramel, wheat, nowhere near the oak aged. doesn’t even taste like it.

PriorL (2488) - Gent, BELGIUM - APR 2, 2015
Found back quite some tasting notes, among them, this one. APPEARANCE: clear blond beer, nice stable white head. NOSE: grains, some alcohol, pleasantly fruity. TASTE: grains, wheat, bit fruity. Very nice to see that with these beers, Oud Beersel was able to get back making lambic!

Deuxième Bersalis testée. Ca reste de faible intérêt. Peu de saveurs. Pour une triple ça reste de peu d’intérêt.
