I think the Tripel is a better choice of the two. As noted, this one has a flavor dominated by alcohol.

Slightly acidic, bit watery mouthfeel, not so dark and full taste than better belgian dubbels. Good carbonation, bit sweet.

Kita (1914) - Koper, SLOVENIA - SEP 13, 2016
Bottle, 0.33l. Cloudy dark brown color with thin soapy tan-like head and sparkling appearance. Aroma of yeast, must, grape skin, dark fruit, earth and herbs. Taste starts moderate sweet and sour fruity and yeasty, follows by toasted malt, caramel and slightly papery, mouthfeel is medium spicy, while finish is mild bitter. Medium to full body, thick texture and fizzy carbonation in palate. Nicely balanced and a bit on a sourish side...

Iznogud (2614) - CROATIA - JUL 28, 2016
Bottle, 330 ml at Craft Room. Pours unclear brown with pretty large beige head. Malty, dried fruit, some caramel, yeast. Has some vinous twist to it, something quite strange, not sure if it’s meant to be like that.

sinte (500) - Udine, ITALY - JUL 7, 2016
Bottle 0.33L. Dark brown body with a large, frothy, tan head, mostly lasting with nice lacing. Miderate malty (caramel, toasted) and light yeasty aroma with notes of red (cherries) and dark (prunes) fruits and raisins. Moderate-to-heavy fruity sweet, light-to-moderate bitter flavour; long-lasting sweet and light bitter finish: vinous feeling. Medium body with oily texture; soft carbonation.

Fules (827) - Gyöngyös, HUNGARY - JUN 23, 2016
Nagy, rendkívül tartós hab, barna szín. Fűszeres, malátás illat, enyhe karamellel. Savanykás, enyhén pörkölt malátás ízvilág, némi keserűvel karöltve. Utóíze savanykás, nagyon enyhe karamellel. Közepesen testes. Nincs igazán összhang, és sok a savanyú.

karpik (703) - Sosnowiec, POLAND - JUN 13, 2016
