Draft @ ZBF 2012 // hazy orange / yellow with a white head // smell is crisp, citrus, herbal & touch exotic fruits, slight sweet side // taste is citrus hops, touch herbal, fresh, slight grains & okayish Belgian yeast // light & touch fizzy // not bad but not particularly special or memorable

sebletitje (6592) - Enghien, BELGIUM - APR 29, 2012
Draft @ ZBF’12. Dorée/orange brumeuse, col fin blanc. Malt grillé, houblonné palais reste très belge dans son approche sur un profile carapils avec un pétillant moyen, citronné, houblon noble restant sec au palais, poussiéreux le tout étant réchauffant.

Full, bready aroma with a funky, yeasty undercurrent. Swampy dark gold pour topped by a decent head. The flavor is very good - candi sugar sweetness mixed with sharp hops and yeasty bread. Brewed in Belgium by Stillwater. The cool, tingly bitterness makes for a nice effect on the palate. This is a fine tripel.

Bottle; Pour is very murky dark golden with a fine bubbled white head that retains on the average side ; quite a bit of yeast in this one as well. The nose is peaches, candied sugar dominant, and some florals I suppose. The candied sugars come through a bit too heavy on the tongue as well for me ; More fruits, peaches and apple skins; some bittering hops come through, with yet more sweetness and bread. Not cohesive for me, not bad, though.

33cL Bottle. Thanks for sharing, Emeline. Soft aroma of cooked apples and yeast. Flavors yield a really spicy mix, which I’m guessing is coming from the hop mix. Fluffy and with some of the Tripel complexity and character, but this mostly feels like a hoppy Saison or something else really yeast. Interesting, but maybe not entirely cohesive.

Once more into the fascinating Stillwater Export series. Up now: the "Hoppy Belgian Triple", Rule of Thirds. But you know that, since you’re here.

A. Into the Trip-Karm glass again. Dull, sediment-tinged orange with a two-finger tightly packed head atop. No lace this time.

S. Not remarkable, but definately Tripel-like, which is good. The hops seem Noble and restrained, but present, adding a green, herbal quality to a malty, phenolic, peppery nose. Mild green apple and candi sugar are here too. A fine nose, but nothing especially memorable.

T. Taste is fairly dry-Tripel, with a full, genteel carbonation level that evens things out and spreads the flavor about. This is green, the hop bitterness and the peppery phenols from the Belgian yeast carry the day into spicy, bitter lands. A touch of caramel adds interest. Some unfermented sugar also appears, and is welcome, but isn’t enough. Not sure the hops help the Tripel at hand... the carbonation is excellent, and the finish medium-long and ultimately, grapefruit-bitter.

M / O. Really enjoying the carbonation level here. Full and lush, with just enough pep to keep you coming back for more. The beer itself is medium-bodied, and the advertised 8% seems right to me. Finish is sweet, then fades into bitter, yeast-driven dryness.

Rule of Thirds is decent beer, but nothing terribly memorable or unique. I like Tripels and thought it was fine for a one-and-done.

Bottle split with Linh. Pours a hazy amber body with white lacing. Aroma is super sweet spice and banana. Mouthfeel is carbonated with ntoes of sweet banana and spice. Ehhhhhhh.

Draft at Max’s. Orange pour with a thin white head. Hazy, almost opaque. Citrusy hop and bread aroma. Dry citrus and grapefruit flavor. Tons of hops. Light sweetness with very bitter finish. A bit heavy.

La levure suintante et le houblonnage à froid sont les grands traits de cette bière. Son corps de champagne est très vivant et léger. C’est assez grinçant, les saveurs semblent en guerre constante mais la paix et l’équilibre pointe, une gorgée à la fois. Amertume presque végétale en finale. Plus intéressant que délicieux.
