Fantastic nose leads to a great collar of tight bubbles that lace the glass after every delicious taste!

Tripel veramente spettacolare, una casuale e piacevolissima scoperta. Premetto che l’ho assaggiata alla spina. Colore oro splendente; schiuma finissima, spessa e persistente. Aroma fresco, di luppolo. In bocca è un capolavoro. Perfetto equilibrio di molti sapori: luppolo (finemente e continuamente presente), fruttato e un chiarissimo champagne (che si percepisce nella seconda parte del sorso e nel retrogusto) Retrogusto molto persistente. Bolicine finissime, carbonizzazione giusta. Con il pesce fa la sua figura, ma è assolutamente molto versatile negli abbinamenti.

Signalons d’abord que cette triple a maintenant une nouvelle étiquette de couleur bleu roi, superbe, avec Saint Arnould en portait sur vitrail (voir le modèle sur l’étiquette de la blonde). Le degré abv est toujours à 8,7, ce qui la place assez haut dans les triple. La couleur est un superbe doré brillant. La clarté est pure. Les bulles sont ultra fines et par milliers. La mousse est blanche, et très épaisse comme un blanc d’oeuf battu en neige. Les arômes sont de houblon mêlé aux fameuses épices du "gruut", mélange spécial propre à la bonne ville de Bruges. Passons sans tarder à la dégustation gustative... Le volume est soyeux à travers cette mousse de belle facture. Le premier goût est dominé par les herbes et épices, avec une amertume prononcée mais d’un houblon fin. En deuxième goût, on trouve déjà l’équilibre houblon/épices. En troisième, le malt apparait dessous. La longueur tient la route. La levure est très lisse. La finale revient sur l’amertume d’un très beau houblon, accompagné d’herbes vertes. L’alcool n’est pas excessif, et s’intègre bien à cette finale. Une belle triple, qui est sous-évaluée sur notre site...

Strong beer. Good to chill on at the bar. Except then everyone wants to taste a little. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle 330m from King&Godfree. Great, yeasty beer. Aromas of bread, caramel, grain, and some citrus. Taste is sweet, with sour and bitter notes, and long length. Palate is creamy, and full bodied. Yellow, with a big frothy head.

Very beautiful whirling pearls, very lively beer. Full head, thick. Strong hints of yeast and alcohol. Full body. Wait-a-minute-let-me-knock-you-down-kind-of beer. Nice.

Papsoe (25083) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JUN 16, 2005
(Bottle 33 cl) My original version was from "De Gouden Boom" in Bruges. Orangey golden with a fine head. I get very vinous associations here - like a very good Chardonnay. Spicy with a late bitterness. Extremely, rich, aromatic and complex - the kind of beer that slowly unfolds in your mouth. Great stuff indeed. 151197

Very sparkling, cloudy yellow golden colour. Small white head. Very bitter and yet sugary aroma. Fruity taste and a very versatile palate with hints of caramel, roast, a mild bitterness and pear. Definitely worth its (high) price.

750 ml bottle. Very sparkly, the aroma is stingy fruity, the taste is bold, fruity, a bit sour, with a mild finish.

Yummy! Sweet and one of the easiest to drink tripels on planet earth. No harsh alcohol taste, which is unusual for 8.5%. Deserves more credit than it gets.
