krisbierjaeger (844) - dolores, Colorado, USA - SEP 20, 2009
the bottle says: "with a name like slaapmutske, it has to be good". well, not so fast. aside from the plagiarism of the smuckers jam company’s long held slogan, the role of names in beer marketing success is highly variable: arrogant bastard and monte python’s holy grail are beers that reap sales owing to an eye catching name, independent of a beer drinkers experience. on the other hand, schenkerla and westvleteran are names that could choke a multi-lingual auctioneer, yet quicken the hearts of the faithful. at 12 bucks a pop for the 750, slaapmutske had better do back flips of zymurologic acrobatics like a highly caffeinated terrier dog on the ed sullivan show. admittedly a nice start: "slopmustard" breaks wind with a librarians "shush" as the fake cork became suddenly unemployed. bottle conditioned, with a nuclear winter of dark swirling debris in the bottle, once in the glass we gaze upon a beer as richly yellow as a deep cadmium pool of butter, while the head braced itself on top with the surety of a luxury liner, mainsails in white, flags of lace hanging from every line. "spankmonkey" has a simple hard candy aroma, danish butter cookies, hard little peaches picked in spring, flecks of dry hop leaves, and a bit of bees wax. bright carbonation blends vies with sweetness, bitterness and a full creamy body to command some attention. i taste ginger and grapefruit, with a touch of toothpaste lemon-grass. there persists a lingering bitterness, surprising for a tripel, and a subtlety corrupting influence of alcohol. and still those cunning spirals of lace on the glass point the way to slumber: down, so slowly down. it’s nice, but, but... i dunno. like a pretty girl that i’d stroke all night but never really risk falling in love with. maybe it’s that name: muckslobber-- or whatever.

Excalibur123 (168) - Soria, SPAIN - OCT 27, 2014
Color amarillo bronce algo turbio y fina burbuja, media capa de espuma que perdura; buenos aromas a levadura belga, manzana, notas florales y miel. En boca entrada media y algo picante con el alcohol bien integrado, pos gusto largo con sutil amargor que torna a dulce al momento; cuerpo medio y ligero carbónico, en una cerveza triple fácil de beber y bien balanceada resultando muy aceptable.

Alengrin (2331) - BELGIUM - OCT 12, 2014
The tripel in this series, peach blond with a dense, sticky head and malt sweet onset with fresh fruitiness and yeasty spiciness, relatively dry, aromatic hoppy finish. Stereotypical, but a very decent tripel.

A solid tripel. Drier and more bitter than the average tripel. Lots of pepper, some finishing herbs, and hints of citrus.

ForlornHope (84) - Hampshire, ENGLAND - AUG 30, 2014
33 cl bottle at home. Strong bready, malty aroma with hop. Not floral at all. Attractive orange colour with a white head. Strong bitter taste, not sweet like the usual tripel. Sticky palate. Good beer, this, nicely avoiding the trend for sweet tripels and going bitter and hoppy.

martjoobolut (867) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - AUG 28, 2014
0,33L bottle. Pours golden-amber with off-white head. The head doesn’t stay. Aroma is fresh fruits, tart, citrus, yeast, malt. Flavor is sweet and tart, citrus, acidic, spices, yeast, malt. Finish is lingering dry bitterness with citric notes. Overall: ok brew.
