On tap at De Garre in Bruges. Hazy dark peach colored pour with a monstrous, thick, white head. Aroma holds a definite booziness, spice, orange and lemon zest, clove, and nutmeg. Flavor is marked with a really nice sweet caramel and molasses component that mixes beautifully with citrus, yeast, and candied sugars. Palate is smooth and creamy with a touch of sugary stickiness that makes you smack your lips. You could really get yourself in trouble with how easily this 11.5% beer goes down. Super tasty.

[cask at Staminee de Garre, Brugge]. Served from the bar-top cask with a saucer of cubed cheese it arrives with a deep, long-lasting head. Totally opaque orange/apricot colour with a quite wonderful noseful of fruit, wheatbeer tang and rich alcohol. Very strong aroma and lovely full mouthfeel. Sturdy warming alcohol flavours from the start. Fantastic aftertaste of strong wit, some flowers and more alcohol. Visiting Staminee de Garre is an absolute must if you find yourself in Bruges, this was one of the best beers I found on my trip there Ė supposedly youíre only allowed three but I was told if you ask, the barman will let this slide as long as he keeps an eye on you. He could sit on my lap as far as Iím concerned, Tripel de Garre is worth it. [12032010]

lagermonkey (725) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - JUN 6, 2010
Drank a couple of these at Staminee de Garre in Brugge - October 2008 Hazy gold topped with a dense, creamy white head in a goblet. Fruity and spicy in the nose. Sweet. Big, sweet maltiness but plenty of spicy hop character to offset it. Big and bold but smooth and well balanced. Itís lively and just a bit warming but the considerable alcohol is masked. Dryish finish. Very, very nice tripel. It may be worth it to go to Brugge for this beer alone.

piscator34 (1974) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - MAY 19, 2010
On draft at Garre. Dark gold in colour with strong carbonation. Very spicy on the nose (specifically black pepper and nutmeg), along with pale and pilsner malts, and booze. Savory spices and orchard fruit dominate the palate, along with more light malts. Medium bodied and a bit slick in the mouth. Well balanced.

UPDATED: MAR 22, 2011 Had this as Waagstuk Bios Van Steenberge, Etvelde Blond which I understand is an alias, 20-02-10 Pours gold with a white head. This drinks far easier than an 11% beer should, canít believe that its that strong though there is a nice warmth. Its sweet, malty with a fruitiness and a slight bitter bite. A6 A4 F7 P4 Ov13 3.4 Had this again at Waagstuk, Antwerp, Belgie, 20.03.11 Pours gold with a white head. Some sweetness and a little corn and cereal showing. Sunshine in a glass on a late winters day. Alcohol is quite heavy but this is a marvellous beer. A7 A4 T8 P3 Ov15 3.7

Ungstrup (29504) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - DEC 18, 2009
Bottled. An unclear golden beer with a lazing beige head. The aroma has notes of malt and fruit. The flavor is sweet with notes of malt, fruit, and yeast, leading to a dry fruity finish. Thanks yespr for sharing.

pompelmoes (89) - BELGIUM - NOV 13, 2009
Great looking golden-blond beer with a nice big white head on top. Aroma is slight peppery and has some Duvel like characteristics. It has a medium-dry malty feeling and some flowery touches too. Taste is ferm and it has a good balans. There are some hints of hops, alcohol and pale-malts ending with a nice peppery and flowery finish. Tasted at De Garre Bruges served in its most original glass.

weaselkenievil (1608) - Cheshire, ENGLAND - SEP 25, 2009
Big magnum type size bottle. Maybe it was because I drunk the whole lot in a couple of hours, maybe it was the fact that this is as good as I thought it was. Ever since I started rating (and before, Iíve always yearned for more since I was a boy) it has made my beer drinking experience so much richer and steadily moved me away from where I started on the blondes and tripels. This brought me home, this is pretty much how I want my every day beer to taste. Pineapple and citrus, sherbert, very yeasty, some spice, little caramel. Also helps that it brings back memories of being sat in De Garre on my honeymoon. I loved this stuff. Very tasty and with the sheer knackers a good beer should have. One criticism, they have ham or cheese sandwiches, he wouldnít make me a ham and cheese! Miserable twat.
