Wonderful Belgian beer, tried from a bottle. Usual Belgian character, but not woody, wonderfully dry with bitter aftertaste, without being citrussy. Tastes classy, refined and expensive, Brugse Zot’s older, richer brother! Among my favourite Belgian beers.

750 ml corked and caged. The price sticker on this says May of 2015, so it has a little age on it. Aroma is butterscotch, banana, meat, skunk. Pours hazy light orange with an off-white head. Taste is sweet, oxidized, finishes with a light dry bitterness. Let me have this beer fresher please. I’m sure my score will be higher.

Cant sense much aroma. But beer looks good with quite a big head for a tripple. Taste is fresh, carbonation is little too strong for my liking.

9% alkoholu robi wrażenie, ale wciąż nie odchodzi od kanonu stylu i najlepszych przedstawicieli. To bardzo dobry tripel, mogę go spokojnie ustawić obok najlepszych przedstawicieli stylu, których dane mi było spróbować. Mieszają się tu aromaty i smaki brzoskwini, banana, lekkiego karmelu, skórki chleba. Piwo jest dosyć pełne i lekko szczypiące. W smaku skłania się ku słodyczy, ale pozostawia mocno wytrawny, owocowy posmak. To jedno z tych piw, gdzie duża zawartość alkoholu nie przeszkadza, nawet gdy za oknem lato. Gorąco go polecam!

Helder licht oranje, flinke schuimkraag Geur heeft granige, haast pilsige mout, licht fruitige esthers, beetje gist Smaak heeft meer gist en dikke zoet fruitige esthers Medium tot zware vooral zoete body... dikke zoete gistige afdronk Lekker, stevig, iets te zoet voor mij

jbruner (4117) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - OCT 13, 2016
Pours a hazy golden yellow from the bottle with bubbly white head that dissipates to leave moderate lace. Aroma and taste of lighter fruit esters, hints of spice, vanilla, sweet maltiness. Booze is well hidden, effervescent on the mouth, a solid tripel.

Nische (1920) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - OCT 10, 2016
Bottle from Belgoklubben. Slightly hazy, light yellow with frothy white head. Herbal and spicy aroma and taste with some honey, lemon zest, grass, hay. Crispy bitterness with very light fruity notes. High, but smooth carbonation.

ardeo (179) - Flémalle, BELGIUM - OCT 10, 2016
Bottle 33. Belle bière cuivrée légèrement trouble à mousse abondante et bulles moyennes. Nez assez discret mais les céréales et le floral dominent. Bouche épicée et un peu amère : belle amertume pour une bière équilibrée. Longueur intéressante mais au total, pour moi, cette triple n’atteint pas les sommets comme d’autres produits de cette brasserie.

Piana niska, sycząca, szybko opada do mizernej firanki. Barwa złota, klarowna. Aromat to po prostu brzoskwinia, kandyzowana morela, biszkopt i cukierki bon pari. W smaku dość słodkie, landrynkowe, tu znów morele, kandyzowane bakalie, keks, na finiszu sporo ziół i pikantnych przypraw. W kontrze średnia goryczka, dość wysokie, grube wysycenie, alkohol nie przeszkadza.
Chyba jednak lekki zawód - tak wyraźnej i irytującej landrynki nie czułem w piwie od dawna :)

Pullo @ Strijdershuis, Brugge. Kaatuu lasiin kullanoranssina ja kirkkaana, noin sormen paksuisella vaahdolla. Tuoksu on vahvan sitruksinen ja kuivatun hedelmäinen, alla on viljaa ja mausteisuutta. Maussa vahva sitrus jatkaa, mausteita ja yrttejäkin on reilusti, hieman makeaa hedelmää on myös joukossa. Suutuntuma on hiilihappoinen ja suht täyteläinen, alkoholikin tuntuu hieman. Hyvä, mutta hieman pliisu tripel, saisi olla tuhdimpi ja moniuloteisempi. Simpukoiden kanssa toimi hyvin.
