This triple from Bruges has some distinct qualities that make it stand out from your ordinary triple style. In addition to the usual citric and coriander notes that I find run thru most BT’s there are some malty and Hoppy notes, this is due to the addition of more roasted malts than most regular triples. Self described as an Amber triple.

Bottle 33cl. A clear golden-amber beer with good head and lacing. Nose is lemony. Aroma is dry, lemony, very hopy on peppery and grassy side. Body is medium to high complex with honey hints, very bitter. A good triple beer.

paultheguru (644) - Parker, Colorado, USA - APR 3, 2011
Pours a nice vibrant reddish orange, with a slightly off-white head. great retention and outstanding lacing. nice aromas of candi sugar, light hints of clove and a solid malt base, which gives me a baked apple aroma. Tastes outstanding. Almost like a tripel and a belgian amber blended. Candi sugar,clove, medium sweetness, lively, solid Brugges beer.

Dark yellow colour. Flavour is fresh, a little sweet and sour. Has a pleasant, full, grainy flavour but aftertaste is a bit soapy.

Faint spice notes on the aroma. Poured from a tap. A tap. Has that unexplainable and indescribable triple taste without being particularly memorable. Not a big fan of this one.

Pours a deep honey-gold with some sediment. Clean malty & fruity aroma. Taste is rich and malty, yet drinkable. Fruity, caramelly...some yeast and alcohol. Overall, I like this very much...one of the best tripels I’ve tasted to date.

crossovert (7563) - Illinois, USA - MAR 15, 2011
11.2 oz bottle. It is one of the most attractive tripels in the glass. It is an amber/honey/golden/orange with a foamy white head. It is crystal clear and has some noticeable carbonation bubbles. The smell is subtle but nice. Some fruitiness and some grain. There is also a sweet honey note and some spice. The taste is also quite subtle. It has a nice fruitiness, some sweetness, and a hint of bitterness. There is a slight bit of character form the malts, but not an overbearing amount. The alcohol is there, but pretty well hidden. A pretty good tripel. Serving type: bottle Reviewed on: 01-27-2011 00:03:21

Bottle at HKK tasting. Hazy yellow/orange with an off-white head. Aroma moderate malty (toasted, caramel, overriped apple), light hoppy, moderate yeasty. Flavor moderate sweet and bitter with a average duration. Body medium, texture is watery to oily, carbonation is soft. There were small jellyfish in some of the bottles!
