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.

Clean golden colour, medium white head. Aroma of malt, citrus and other sour fruits, yeast, hay, hops. Dry lightly sweet taste with light hoppy bitterness in finish and aftertaste. Medium body and fizzy carbonation. Decent tripel.

Not very intensive aroma but pleasant, dark for a trippel, taste of caramel with slight feel of alcohol. Very pleasant on a tong. Overall a solid Belgian beer

Bottle. Nose is malty, spicey, honey, , hint of toffee apple, yeast, bread, banana, caramel. Very appealing. Taste is malt, honey lots of spice, apricot, apples, autumnal fruits, citrus peel, vanilla leading to a yeasty, peppery finish. Mouthfeel is slick.
This is a fantastic beer and one that is both underrated and overlooked. It has real balance and complex and subtle flavour profile. Superb.

The Slaapmutske is a neat clear gold appearance in some haze with a white head. Nose is somewhat discrete but okay. Taste is malty with hoppy notes of citrus (pommerance ) and of course yeast. Palate lasting and enjoyable fading in malty notes.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Donkergeel bier met stevig schuim. Smaak is duidelijk beter en sterker dan de bio versie, bitter hoppig en fruitig, licht zoet en krachtig, citrus en abrikoos.

tap@pressklubben. Orange hazy. Fruity yeasty nose. Dry apricots, malty, some grass. Med bodied, bit astirngent, or tart bittery. Very flavourful. Stone fruits, yeasty spices, dry finish. Flavourful, quite easily drunk tripel.

Proto triple, but unfortunately in the poor sense. Brewed with too much sugar and too filtered. Not dry enough, although spiced well from the yeast used. Alcoholic but admittedly warming. Christmas almost, a little indulgent with its shameless alcohol and light bubble. So yes, a nightcap, although still not necessarily a good beer. (33cl bottle from Dranken Pauwels)
