COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Tournée Générale Tripel Hop is een gastronomisch bier. Het is een hoppig en verfrissend bier. De specifiek geselecteerde gist zorgt voor een uitgesproken fruitig banaanaroma, terwijl een unieke selectie van drie hoppen het bier zijn uiterst aantrekkelijke toets geeft. De Magnum-hop, een ‘kettle hopping’, zorgt voor een aan de basis bittere smaak. De aromatische Amerikaanse Amarillo-hop, een ‘late hopping’, geeft het bier een typische citrussmaak en tot slot werkt de Amerikaanse Cascade-hop in ‘dry hopping’ het bier af met een aanvullend citrus- en pompelmoesaroma. De hergisting op fles verzekert een verdere verfijning en een uitstekende bewaring

Fin (9581) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - MAR 23, 2011
Bottle purchased from Dranken Geers, Oostakker, Nr Gent, Belgie, 18.03.11 consumed 23.03.11 Pours gold with a large white frothy head. Soft in the mouth. This is a touch bland, hoppiness is so invisible as to be non-existent, its fine but nothing to excite. There is some vanilla & sweetness. A6 A4 T6 P3 Ov11 3.0

JorisPPattyn (9470) - Ursel, BELGIUM - MAR 2, 2011
Very good, dense, lightly yellow head, collapsing over well-carbonated, golden-orange beer. Spicy smell upon opening. Very "young" aromas, with bananaester and even cloves; then reverting to the initial spiciness. And white candi sugar. Scorched sugar, white candi sugar (corresponding to the very dry finish), and clearly alcohol. Some meaty esters retronasal, but limited. Very spritzy mouthfeel, and dry finish. Palate is the beers best feature. Lines and lines blabbering about the American C-hops used, and if anything is absent in this beers - it’s hops. Of any kind - or, the Magnum ruining it all again? That’s maybe my prejudice, but the beer is seriously disappointing, after all the commotion.

MoritzF (9423) - Ottobrunn, GERMANY - JUN 5, 2011
(bottle, 75cl) Hazy, golden colour with a tall and slightly off-white frothy head. Yeasty, barley- and wheat-malty aroma with notes of banana, bubblegum, traces of citrus and a touch of spicy herbal hops. Moderately sweet and slightly bitter flavour, almost medium bodied with a prickly carbonation. Malty and slightly wheaty start with fruity notes of mostly banana and a tinge of citrus; moderately dry and slightly bitter finish with notes of banana and bubblegum in the aftertaste. According to its name I was expecting more hops character. 05.VI.11

75 bottle from the designer. Dry hoppy nose, citrus and grass, minerals. Nice orange color. Some esters, banana and wheat, plus nice citrus hops in the mouth. Tasty.

sebletitje (9246) - Enghien, BELGIUM - MAR 15, 2011
Bouteille 75cl, suivant la série diffusée sur Canvas. Dorée, blanche. Arôme de levure belge donnant un nez fruité de banane et de citron, on y note cette levure style vieille pils qui caractérise la Palm, herbeuse avec une touche de houblon. En bouche, une bière qui conserve ce profile de levure belge allant sur le style abbaye mais qui mélange une touche de houblon américain qui donne au palais ce côté herbeux et citronné avec une touche de pamplemousse venant du houblon cascade. La levure confère à cette bière des notes de banane.

Overheard: "Men dressing up as women pretending to be women is not offensive." "Well, that’s the backbone of our British Canadian comedy heritage."

14/04/2011 75cl bottle @ home - BB: 01/02/14 (2011-149)

Little cloudy deep yellow to orange beer, creamy white head, bit stable. Aroma: lots of banana upon opening and pouring. Very fruity, some citrus hops, Duvel-like aroma (Saaz?), alcohol, hint of pineapple. MF: lots of carbon, medium body. Taste: ripe bananas first, fruity, bit malty, then some soft bitter hops. Aftertaste: green bananapeel, hops. Definitely gets better on warming up! It’s like pouring half a Duvel and half a Westmalle tripel. Not bad!

Note: tasting notes were taken before reading the bottle.
