Alengrin (4148) - BELGIUM - SEP 14, 2014
One of the more recent additions to the range, though probably a derivative of their Egmont Tripel. A stereotypical malty tripel, hazy blond, with fruity esters and a mild bitterish, grassy hoppy finish. Standard but good.

ForlornHope (354) - Hampshire, ENGLAND - SEP 12, 2014
33 cl bottle poured into a tulip. Very little aroma, sweet and slightly bready. Nice appearance, dark blonde with a large white head. Taste is initially sweet, with a dry bitterness following. Medium palate with soft carbonation and a short bitter finish. Overall not bad and more bitter than some tripels, but lacking in depth overall.

Douberd (4392) - Arnhem, NETHERLANDS - SEP 10, 2014
(Pater Lieven Tripel) Bottle 330 ml at home, poured into a tulip glass, ABV 8% Golden yellow colour on the body, tall white and frothy head, with good retention though. Spots of lacing left on the glass. Aroma is malty, with sugars and alcohol, faint fruity notes. Taste is sweet, some malts, yeast, apricot, sugar, not as fruity as I expected. Medium thin body, high carbonation. Mediocre, even the Blond was better.

Taste is medium sweet, light bitter and light sour. Body is oily with good carbonation. Finish is long and mostly sweet with notes of malt, caramel, lemon, cinnamon, nutmeg, cardamom, chalk and vinegar. Good balance

mikske79 (1389) - Puerto Plata, DOMINICAN REPUBLIC - AUG 14, 2014
Een tripel met een goede, uitgesproken smaak, net zoals een tripel hoort te zijn.

R4N5H (628) - NETHERLANDS - JUL 27, 2014
Pint glass (50cl). Lovely gold colour and poured with a generous head. Sweet, strong and long on the palate. Should have been my last beer of the evening, rather than my first!

bonkiedeaap (578) - Leerdam, NETHERLANDS - JUN 15, 2014
Bottle from de Bierschuur in Poppel. The beer has a deep golden color nearly blonde and a large white head, with a lot of bubbles. The aroma is fruity with tones of bananas, citrus, also spicy, tones of yeast and a little alcohol. In the taste firstly accents of malts and alcohol with a light sweetness which changes in a medium bitterness. The finish is a little dry and spicy and also has a light bitterness. Not very impressed by this one, but it’s a decent tripel.
