De Postel tripel is ook één van mijn teer beminde tripels. Verkrijgbaar in sixpack in de meeste colruyt vestigingen. Het aroma is eerder hoppig met een ondertoon van noten of haver. Het uiterlijk is goud blind met een volle schuimkraag. De smaak is zacht bitter met een ongeraffineerde nasmaak die mij doet denken aan haver, donkere candij en caramel. Ook een vleugje citrus in de nasmaak. Het mondgevoel is licht sprankelend op de tong en krachtig bruisend in de keel. Voor mij is dit een absoluut top bier dat ik maar al te graag aan vrienden zal serveren in en brede waaier aan gelegenheden.

@ ca 12 deg C. Pours nice clear golden straw. Solid snow white head, medium size cell, stays a while. Viscous lacing. Nose faint yeast, malty, damp sand at chilly beach. Some apricots and bakeapple jam. Taste is malty, unripe hazelnut, gooseberry notes. Slight bitter hoppy finish. Pleasant carbonation. Great tripel.

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

JefVerstraete (1458) - Ghent, 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 (2718) - 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 (752) - 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.

MarcoDL (2269) - NETHERLANDS - MAY 16, 2014
Yet another Belgian tripel. Grainy, yeasty and with some aroma hops. Nice, but I’ve had it so many times before.

Douberd (2341) - 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.

Thanks Andre! 18C. Belgian Tripel
