corkyrory66 (1431) - BELGIUM - MAY 28, 2014
Bière triple, pas d’abbaye, mais triple, de 8,5 % abv. Couleur orangée très bizarre pour une triple. Apparence complètement voilée due à un énorme dégagement gazeux à l’ouverture. Mousse blanche crémeuse. Arômes de fleur d’oranger, réglisse vieille, bois mouillé, certains champignons aqueux. 1ère bouche de très vilaine impression sur des épices muscadées mélangées de copeaux de bois. Arrière-bouche assez acide. 2ème sur un très mauvais ensemble disgracieux. 3ème sur l’écorce de bouleau, cerfeuil monté, pointe de céleri fané. Arrière-bouche aride. La longueur ne présente aucune harmonie. La levure est aqueuse, sans vrai caractère. L’alcool ne peut redresser la barre. La finale ne change rien. CONCLUSION : bière hors sujet pour une triple, et hors goût pour une autre … En tout cas, sans équilibre en général . Si on la classe en spéciale, et en fermant les yeux, on peut éventuellement y trouver un point positif ...

fkoolen (999) - Maastricht, NETHERLANDS - MAY 12, 2014
Beautifully hazy golden colour, creamy and stable white head. Aroma and taste are big on malts, grainy and sweet with tones of banana, peach, vanilla coming through: balanced bitterness, a pinch sour and nice alcoholic burn. Medium-low carbonated, light-medium bodied, oily mouthfeel.

TheJvd (1206) - NETHERLANDS - MAY 7, 2014
33 cL bottle at home, gusher! Pours hazy golden with a medium white head. Aroma is quite typical Belgian with some yeast, spices, bit malty and quite sweet. Taste has some spices, yeast some fruitiness and malts with a medium bitter finish. Medium body and carbo.

Douberd (4914) - Arnhem, NETHERLANDS - MAR 7, 2014
Bottle 330 ml at home, into a tulip glass. ABV 8.5% Light gusher, nothing that can’t be prevented. Deep orange colour on the body with some big chunks of yeastfloating around. Huge head, slighty off-white, soapy, with good retention. Medium lacing on the glass. Boozy aroma that matches well with the malts, the sugar and the fruity notes of apricot. Taste has also lots of alchohol, apricots and peaches with malts coming from the back, albeit subtle. Medium and airy body, fizzy carbonation. Not much to say about this one, a classic tripel, only more alcohol fueled.

Scrapersnbeer (1532) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - FEB 15, 2014
Cap top bottle, illustrations is a wizard and a tree brewing beer in a cauldron. Really funky sugar and caramel aroma. Murky orange with heavy suspension. Very sweet and nearly tart taste, candied sugar abounds. In spite of this I found it to be very dry like hoppier tripels. Not much other impression from the body, imperceptibly heavy and filling.

Ordinary Belgian tripel. Has this artisinal funky edge, but nothing special beyond that.

hotstuff (4874) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - FEB 2, 2014
Rated on 02-20-2010 (Flip-top bottle) This beer forms a small fizzy off-white head that mostly diminishes, hazy amber body, visible carbonation, and floaties. The Aroma is caramel malt, hops, sweet, some clove, fruity, and some alcohol. The Taste is sweet, lightly bitter, caramel malt, fruity, hoppy, and some alcohol. The Palate is very smooth and this beer is light-medium bodied. Overall, this is one of my favorite beer styles, but it fell short in the flavor as the flavors just did not seem to come together very well. This beer is not one that I will seek out again.

BVery (9668) - Plymouth, Minnesota, USA - DEC 31, 2013
Bottle from Blue Max. Hazy orange pour with a small white head. More juicy citrus - very tiny bit of sour - than yeast, but there is a touch of yeast. Pretty good beer.

EddyBeer1 (1058) - Brussels, BELGIUM - DEC 19, 2013
UPDATED: DEC 22, 2014 Blonde opaque, sédiments en suspension, effervescence moyenne-faible, col blanc abondant. Assez maltée avec une agréable petite amertume, un rien de fruité et assez épicée. Une triple "autre".

BlackHaddock (6384) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - SEP 25, 2013
23rd Sep 2013: 33cl bottle in De Bierboom, Brugge. Poured a golden hazy colour on first pour, the sediment came out with a vengeance as I emptied the remainder into my glass, turning the glass a more orange hue with a few heavy hunks sinking to the base. The white head gave some lacing and hung around for the whole beer. The taste and nose were both fruity and yeasty, the fruits leaning towards semi-sour citrus, but not quite getting there. I thought it different and tasty, a nice mix of flavours and overall a pleasant enough beer to sip while talking about beers with friends.
