Lawger (83) - SWEDEN - JUN 11, 2014
Smells and tastes much like a slightly more powerful Mardsous Blonde. Some citrus, malts, yeast and bready tones. Typical and slightly above average off-the-shelf belgian tripel.

Classica tripel un po’ invadente, con forte presenza alcolico, gusto floreale e leggremente fruttato. Non troppo complessa, ma nel suo stile buona.

fantti (679) - FINLAND - JUN 2, 2014
Kaatuu tulppaaniin kullankeltaisena ja sameana, noin kolmen sormen paksuisella vaahdolla, joka jättää jonkin verran pitsiä. Tuoksussa vahvimpana tuntuu yrttisen ja pippurisen mausteinen belgihiiva, sitrusta ja hiivaleipää on myös joukossa melko paljon. Leipäinen viljaisuus on jotain, mitä ei yleensä tripelin tuoksussa ole. Maussa ollaan melko perinteisellä linjalla, yrttistä ja pippurisen mausteista hiivaisuutta on eniten, mutta sitruunaista ja kukkaista humalaa on myös melko paljon joukossa. Viljainen leipäisyys tuntuu taustalla lievän happamuuden kanssa. Suutuntuma on melko täyteläinen, napakasti humaloitu ja suht raikas. Leipäinen viljaisuus on jotain hyvin erilaista tähän tyyliin, mutta sopii oikein hyvin joukkoon. Lievää happamuuttakin on joukossa. Hieman lisää raikkautta olisi toivonut, mutta älyttömän hyvää näinkin.

martin00sr (500) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - JUN 2, 2014
Hazy orange, airy white head. Fruity, yeasty aroma. Flavour is similar with clearly present alcohol, a little spicy but mostly fresh and fruity. Carb is lively, mouthfeel is both prickly and creamy.

hohops (217) - Kent, ENGLAND - MAY 30, 2014
Bottle. Appearance- light, golden with an amber tinge, hazy, lots of bubbles rising, a large pillowy white head which settles into a finger’s worth and leaves some lacing. Aroma- fresh fruits- banana, a bit of lemon, creamy malt, grassy, spicy. Taste- creamy, medium to full mouthfeel, hop resins, plenty of biscuity malt, sugary sweetness, sweet banana, spicy notes come through, with a bit of zesty fruit. Quite a short finish. Very tasty.

brianza_ale (74) - ITALY - MAY 27, 2014
UPDATED: JUN 30, 2014 Several times, both on bottle and especially on draught. Beautiful hazy golden color, pours medium head which dissolves to a 1 cm layer. Very fruity, floral, sweet, banana, belgian yeasts aroma, typical tripel essence. Tastes fruits, honey, spices, dough, yeasts. Starts with a great fruity sweet taste which progressively lowers and balances leaving a great palate, with a little bitter grassy finish and medium effervescency. A very nice tripel, with great balance and drinkability. Just love the tap version, even more fresh and balanced.

Hkrivera (91) - Guaynabo, PUERTO RICO - MAY 22, 2014
Highly effervescent Belgian Tripel, with nice aroma, amber color and strong flavor. Perfect for the hot summer as it is very refreshing. Try it with chicken wings! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
