De Smedt ne peut pas déshabiller Pierre pour habiller Jean. On a toujours dit que deux noms de bières d’abbaye chez le même brasseur, c’est trop. Donc comme Affligem est superbe en tant que triple, De Smedt ne peut mettre la Postel au même niveau. Nous posons ainsi l’explication la plus logique au niveau de cette bière, en posant également que les recettes d’époque ne sont plus disponibles ou exploitables. Bref, bel embalage de celle-ci, mais nous verrons la suite. Couleur dorée foncé brillant. Clarté comportant un léger voile, car la levure a tendance à se mélanger au versage. Bulles moyennes bien vivantes. Mousse beige qui nappe en surface, crémeuse. Odeurs de miel, pomme, houblon, levure, sureau, pointe de genièvre. Volume soyeux. Très belle prise de bouche quasi équilibrée à la base. Texture pleine. 2ème bouche avec un peu d’amertume, mais de belle composition et arrière-bouche ok. 3ème bouche revient sur le sureau. Cet accent est un peu curieux, même si en arrière-bouche on revient à un certain équilibre. La longueur est constante, mais pas flamboyante. La levure est souple, amère mais bien adaptée au sujet. L’alcool est bien sous tous rapports (9 % abv). La finale est comme la longueur, comme si elle était retenue. Nous avons donc une bière en tous points sur le niveau de l’Affligem, mais toujours un cran en dessous, et même deux, pour être sûr de ne pas se tromper... Est-ce un mystère ? Pas divin, pour le moins.

Een goede deftige tripel zoals het hoort te zijn, met een goede stevige smaak aan.

JefVerstraete (1296) - BELGIUM - AUG 7, 2014
Bottle from Colruyt, Gent. Golden colour, white foam. Medium carbonation. Medium sweet tripel with notes of banana and citrus. Also some spices (coriander). Light bitter hoppy finish. Good tripel.

Erzengel (2608) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - JUL 8, 2014
Gelb-trübe Farbe mit leicht beigem Schaum. Der Antrunk ist süßlich-scharf, leichte alkoholische Töne spürbar. Der Hauptteil ist relativ alkoholisch-vergoren, leicht scharf. Schwache Aromen von gelben Früchten. Der Nachgeschmack ist scharf, leicht herb, und eher unangenehm.
→ Kein wirklich gutes Tripel! 4+9+2+3

blackisle (703) - IJburg, NETHERLANDS - MAY 19, 2014
Bottle 33 cl. Almost clear orange golden color, small white short lasting frothy head; sweet malty nose, honey, caramel, tangerine, peach, yeast, herbs (juniper) and spices, citrus, floral hops; moderate sweet, slightly bitter; full body, creamy texture; smooth hopbitter finish, followed by tingly peppery notes. Well-balanced tripel, I like it.

Yet another Belgian tripel. Grainy, yeasty and with some aroma hops. Nice, but I’ve had it so many times before.

Douberd (2292) - Arnhem, NETHERLANDS - MAR 30, 2014
Bottle 330 ml at home, poured into a tulip glass, ABV 9% Clear golden yellow colour on the body, with a tall white head, froathy, with average retention, leaving spots of lacing around the glass. Average activity in the glass. Aroma of grass at first and totally ot impressive as it smelled like an ordinary lager. After breathing for a while, aromas of fruits seems to surface, and although nothing differnt, surely was better than the initial one. Some peaches, even some unripe bananas, yeast. Taste is better though and closer to the style. Very fruity, with peaches, bananas, bubblegum, clean yeast, some hay on the finish. Good balance between the initial light sweetness and the aftertaste bitterness. Medium body, a bit high on the carbonation. Hmm, this one starts a bit disappointing but later on it changes course and becomes quite decent.

rosenbergh (6827) - Tampere, FINLAND - MAR 21, 2014
330 ml bottle. 9%. BB 02/07/15. From belgianbeerfactory.com.
Slightly cloudy golden colour with a tiny white head. Mild yeast, caramel sweetness and malt in the aroma. The flavour is yeast, bitterness, rubber, malt and mild alcohol. Quite mild flavour. A bit harsh.
