islay (1135) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - NOV 19, 2012
11.2 oz. bottle. Aroma features melon, brownie, cherry pie, whipped cream, honey, and white grape juice scents. Pours a hazy, lightly cloudy brass with some light-colored suspended particulate. Effervescent: Fast-rising bubbles. Moderate amount of taupe head. Dull, heavy flavor features honey, white grape juice, and cream elements. A bit boozy. Nothing special in the flavor. Dull, bitter aftertaste. Full body. Frothy and fizzy in the palate. Disappointing.

Detto comunque fra di noi, non sono sinceramente un grande amante di questo birrificio, ma invece devo dire che questa tripel, mi è garbata.

Alengrin (1824) - BELGIUM - AUG 6, 2014
Triple with dense, firm, off-white foam and warm orange blonde colour with a somewhat pinkish hue, equally fuzzy because of delicate, dusty yeast particles that become big yeast clouds after pouring in the deposit. Nutty aroma with subdued fruits (orange, apricot, tomato), some vanilla, sage, leather, cognac, black pepper. Dry taste with vivid fruitiness, medium carbonated, on a caramelly maltiness, nutty and spicy tones, finishing in a peppery hop bitterishness. Moderately okay tripel but a bit redundant, in my view.

KnutAlbert (6110) - Oslo, NORWAY - JUN 6, 2014
Bottle from the brewry stadn at Zythos 14. Soft, fruity, similar to the Blondelle, but this has an extra edge of bitterness - more to my liking.

corkyrory66 (590) - 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 (312) - 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 (889) - 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 (2309) - 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 (1486) - 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.
