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

MoritzF (8937) - 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

JorisPPattyn (8799) - 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.

Fin (8704) - 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

75 cl bottle @ Gastropub Tuulensuu, Tampere.
Pours clear golden colour with large head. Aroma is soapy citrus, spices, orange peel, some banana and distant notes of honey. Flavour is citrus, spices, honey and some caramel. Strong carbonation and medium-bodied but otherwise quite watery palate.

sebletitje (8124) - 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.

DruncanVeasey (7881) - NUNEATON, TOP, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - MAR 28, 2012
Flat-bottomed, 750ml corked bottle from that warehouse on the outskirts of Brugge. Pepper and cream; subdued yet mouth-watering, mouldering satsuma aroma; mint, almond, candy shrimps (banana). Brilliant gold with high carbonation and head. Peppery and herbal (parsley) with citrus hints, Cointreau warmth, lemon candy- rock. A slightly off-putting, peppery almond, strong lager streak. Can’t really score it down for anything in particular, but the overall impression is underwhelming.

laiti (7744) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JUN 28, 2011
75 cl bottle @ Tuulensuu, no BBE info
Aroma is equal to a sweet white wine. Has a bit soapy citrus. Palate has much CO2 and is a bit of dryish. Taste is dry and reminds me of a white wine too. It also has some fruity citrus. Very wine-like and pleasant brew. Couldn’t find the hops though.
