330ml brown bottle, shared with gilvanblight at Smokeless Joe, Toronto. Gold pour, some haze. Light ring of white head. Yeast and caramel aroma, sweet. Creamy mouthfeel, wheat and citrus/lemon notes, yeasty finish. Medium body with some prickly carbonation.

The tripel in the Tongerlo series, replaced by the Prior in 2009, apparently. This rating is based on tasting notes dating back twelve years and it seems I won’t get the chance for a re-rating. Not that this bothers me at all: I did not like this tripel anyway, it showed that same dull and boring malt sweetness as the Blond, but in order to obtain a higher ABV, more sugar had been added, making it more sweet even, but no substantial hop bitterness for balance. Finish was thin, metallic and alcoholic. Bland and definitely one of the lesser Belgian tripels I had.

330ml bottle from Vanuxeem. Pours hazy copper. Aroma is sweet vanilla. Taste follows with luscious tripel flavours veering on the sweet side. Has a fair carbonation but doesn’t distract too much from the taste. Very nice.

Just another Belgian tripel. Tasty and quite enjoyable, but also very average.

rok1024 (1155) - Maribor, SLOVENIA - DEC 29, 2013
Almost clear deep orange appearance with strong head. Fruity and yeasty aroma, medium sweetness, medium body. Missing perfect balance but overall decent Tripel style beer..

Erzengel (3552) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - DEC 5, 2013
UPDATED: DEC 22, 2013 Sehr hell-trüb im Glas. Der Schaum ist ziemlich beständig. Geruch ist voll-fruchtig-süßlich. Ananas. Antrunk vollmundig-frisch-süßlich. Voller Charakter. Der Hauptteil wird etwas alkoholisch-scharf, aber schön fruchtig-weißbrotig. Auf der Zunge bleibt eine fruchtig-frische, aber auch süßlich-scharfe Note zurück.
Sehr interessantes Bier, aber für meinen Geschmack zu alkoholisch-schatf!
Test vom 11.7.2008, Gebinde: Glasflasche Noten: 12,10,9,9,12,9 - 9,60

Aroma has soapy citrus, some apricot and floral notes. Flavour is slightly sweet with soapy citrus, apricot, Belgian yeast and distant floral notes. Your typical tripel.
