Chudwick (2144) - Cincyucky, Kentucky, USA - JAN 15, 2012
11.2oz bottle - pours cloudy honey amber with rich slightly off-white head and some lacing. Nose is yeast, spices and alcohol. Aroma is caramel malts, basement aromas and toffee/nut. Medium to full body with thin texture. Long nutty finish and ends fairly fry. Taste is mainly sweet. Lots of flavor and yet lighter than most tripel’s I’ve had.

75 cl bottle. Rated on 16.07.2010
Aroma is perfume-like with yeast, flowery notes and hints of alcohol. Palate is rather rich and feels like syrup. Flavour has sugar, alcohol, flowery notes and hints of apricot. Good.

TET (1641) - FINLAND - JAN 4, 2012
A golden, almost copperbrown beer with a medium and beige head. Aroma is fruitfull and strongly spicy, orange and orange marmelade. Spicyness is dominating the taste, also black peppers, herbs, some fruityness, sweetness balancing the strong spicyness. Quite fresh to drink, medium+ bodied, lots of carbonation, but that is smooth. Typically, the yeast callms down this beer. Interesting, spicy Tripel, good and enjoyable beer.

psilosophy (491) - vitry en artois, FRANCE - DEC 8, 2011
Bouteille de 33cl. Couleur cuivrée, mousse assez abondante et de tenue correcte. Caractère malté bien trempé avec des notes de caramels et de réglisse. Carbonnation moyenne-haute. Un peu dans l’esprit d’une leffe 9 mais plus subtile avec un alcool bien mieux caché. Trouvée à Vanuxeem - Ploegstaert.

I was disappointed by the aroma at first. Good surprise for the taste : Long finish with caramel and regliss. Nice head and color.
