Holmen1 (3288) - Stavanger, NORWAY - FEB 1, 2013
Flaske fra Polet: tårnhøjt, fluffy skum som varer i mitt Duvel-glass. Gylden, lett uklar farge. Beskjeden aroma som domineres av nellik, koriander og litt frukt. Fornemmer jeg en anelse av banan? Smaken er bitrere enn mange andre tripel, og bitterhet dominerer også ettersmaken. Litt alkoholsødme, men ikke den typiske tripelsødme som jeg foretrekker.

Bamsen78 (4000) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - FEB 1, 2013
Bottle. Pours clear golden with airy white head. Clear, sweet aroma of malt, hop and caramel with a distinct boozy note. Well-balanced malty and sweetish taste, enriched by spicy, caramellish, fruity and burning notes. Good, dry aftertaste.

33cl bottle from Vinmonopolet. Pours slightly hazy golden with a large white head. Aroma of fruits, yeast, malt, spices and alcohol. Sweetand lightly spicy with a mild bitterness in the finish. Notes of bananas in the flavour. Ok triple, but not a favourite...

laiti (6826) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JAN 29, 2013
33 cl bottle @ hotel room, Bruges. Rated on 15.07.2010
Aroma has soapy citrus, some floral notes and some apricot. Flavour is somewhat sweet with soapy citrus, some peaches, caramel and spices. Also some alcohol comes through at the end of the glass. Your typical tripel.

Bathory (458) - Bryne, NORWAY - JAN 15, 2013
Pours a straw yellow colour with a 2 finger shite head. Don’t get that much out of the aroma, some hay, yeast and floral notes. Falvour is well balanced with the hay, candysugar, malts, cereal and dough. Alcohol isn’t notable at all. Long sweet and sour aftertaste. Lots of carbonation, medium body and a slick mouthfeel. An enjoyable beer.

rand (1297) - SWITZERLAND - JAN 12, 2013
Golden Blonde with a nice white and persistant foam, sticking to the glass. Acidulated aromas with hints of honey, barley sugar, coriander and hop. The mouth is very spiced, rich and greedy. There is bitterness of citrus and an acidity a bit pricking. A powerfull and tasty beer with notes of citrus-zest and endive in finale.
