Ysok02 (130) - MOns, BELGIUM - JAN 18, 2015
Robe ambrée. Nez très fruité sur la pomme, la poire, une belle note de malt et de houblon. Bouche à l’attaque épicée, de la rondeur, un coté moelleux tout en restant droit et sec avec une longue amertume en finale.

Alusmamuts (600) - LATVIA - JAN 17, 2015
Light amber / orange hazy with rich off-white, bit creamy head. Sour - bitter taste with tuch of sweet and citrus (orange) notes, which satys also in the bitter aftertaste.

Not my favorite tripel. Appearance is dominated by a big frothy head which seemingly never goes away. Smell is not hoppy at all and is dominated by what i think is coriander. Taste is not very full and balanced and a bit bitter. Palate is a but watery for me and not creamy. Overall its an ok ale, but clearly not the best in the class as its too simple and not complete enough in taste or feel.

This one’s on the boozy side of the style. Pours hazy orange with lively initial head and not much lacing. Some light coriander. Soft carbonation. Light bitter finish with some sweetness, most of the aftertaste comes from the booze. Bottle.

Not so complex. In The Taste a little bitter. I was not really crazy about this beer.

olsvammel (3676) - Örebro, SWEDEN - DEC 31, 2014
Bottle from a friend (ordered through Systembolaget). Fruity smell with a hint of almonds. The taste is actually a bit sweet which I’m really enjoying. Gives it a much better balance then most tripels. Not very boozy either. I like this, one of the better tripels I’ve had.

Smells great. Orange peel amd banana yeast with and herbal aroma. Luscious cloudy gold color. Thick body with complex yeast tastes that end in a gritty peppery bitter. Nice tripel.
