Clear amber pour with a sudsy white head. Nail polish and bandaid in the nose with graham cracker and dough following. Chemical, but the deeper facets are great. Bready nectar, spice, and citrus abound. Medium body with medium coronation and a dry dough finish.

On tap at Brouwer’s for Big Wood, pours a hazy orange with a big white head. Aroma of yeast, apples / pears, dry white wine notes - just like a great tripel should be. Flavour of yeast, sweet candied green apples, dry pear, and slight champagne notes. Deep, complex flavours. Extremely enjoyable tripel.

Draught at TND: Aroma of malt, yeast, slight hops, slight sugar, and a hint of must. Poured yellow/gold in color with a huge, foamy, rocky, frothy, white head that lasted throughout. Cloudy. Sparkling. Full of tiny particles throughout. Very good lacing. Flavor is lightly sweet and slightly bitter. Tastes of malt, grain, yeast, bubblegum, slight coriander, and a hint of hops. Light to medium body. Dry texture. Average carbonation. Malt, yeast, bubblegum, finish is lightly sweet and slightly bitter. 11.5%ABV is dangerously well hidden throughout. CONGRATS to TND for getting this as a house beer!

Fra fat på Afspanning t’ Waagstuk, Antwerpen 28 Apr 11. Gyldenbrun. Høyt luftig skum. Skummet etterlater trappemønster på glasset. Behagelig krydderaroma. Rik fruktig smak. Mye krydder. Velintegrert. Varig krydret ettersmak. Alkoholen godt kamuflert. En utmerket aperitiff.

5000 (6600) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - NOV 19, 2011
Draught @ Brouwer’s Café:   Deeper golden, bright, large foamy white head, nice lacing.   Strong bready nose, very yeasty, a little floral.   This one also brings some heat.   Very strong and alcoholic on the tongue.   Also very bready.   In the pale sense.   Wished this was a bit more floral, but as is its a strong tripel for sure.   Packs a wallop.   Big in body and mouthfeel.   Has a bit of pale fruit on the exit.   Good, but a bit of a bruiser.   Wished it were more floral but as is its pretty solid.

Draught @ de Garre, Rated on 15.07.2010
Rather typical aroma to tripel with some soapy citrus and spices. Some yeast and alcohol too. Flavour is strong with spices and citrus. Good tripel!

UPDATED: MAY 28, 2012 On draught at the Staminee de Garre. Pours a golden colour with a thick and lasting white head. Aroma of biscuity malt, candy sugar, caramel, yeast and alcohol. Similar flavours with moderate carbonation and a foamy mouth-feel. Nice with fairly prominent alcohol.

Pours mostly clear golden color with nice head and slight lacing. Nose is full of fruity ketones and yeast. First sip is velvet smooth with malt and a great mouth feel. Very nice beer.

On tap at De Garre during our trip to Belgium last week. Reviewed from notes. Served in a De Garre snifter with a strange, thick pedestal. Really interesting glass; glad that they sell them. Pours a clear golden-apricot color with loads of sticky lacing. The nose is quite delicate with a bit of spice and some nice fruit. Light stone fruits and pear plus a bit of pepper and clove. The flavor is a bit more spicy than the nose, but also has the nice fruit components. Medium body with crisp carbonation and just a tad too much booze. Really enjoyable; one of the best tripels I’ve ever had.

Draught at Staminee de Garre in Brugge last month. A hazy golden/amber coloured pour with a huge lasting white head on top. Nice sweet Belgian spice aroma. Tastes sweet, orange, banana, malty, spice, bready. A delicious, warming triple that I have had many times at de Garre. Great beer in a great atmospheric bar.
