4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
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.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.

Tap. Very awesome beer. Worth heading over to this bar just for this offering. Very unique beer. Had lots of head. Glass was really cool. I enjoyed this beer. Lots of spice and yeasty notes. This one is a sipper forsure.

‘T Vat at the pub. Lasting, dense, creamy white head with rich lacing. Hazy, golden-orange body (just as the photo top left). Aroma is fruity with hints of apricot and wheat. Sweet fruity taste with spices and a long-lived bittersweet finish with just enough notes of alcohol. Full bodied. A real pleasure to drink this one as the first beer of the day in an alley café like De Garre (Brugge, 03.05.2011).

draft@’t Waagstuk: hazy orange beer with white creamy head, slightly sweet, lots of yeast with citric notes + herbs & some spices, tangrine, dried fruits (once that come in colourful cubes as candy, don’t know their name), touch banana and booze, not bad but not really my kind of taste

4.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
Wow, what a beer. The aroma betrays the high alcohol content. Not as sweet as some tripels.
Arrives at the table at Staminee de Garre a bright golden color with a big white head that lingers and coats the sides of the glass. Typically hazy as a Tripel should be.
The taste is smooth and rich. Numerous flavors appear with no fighting. Only lightly sweet.
The feeling of the hear on the lips and tongue lasts. Overall, this is pleasant and delicious. Everything I had heard and hoped for.

Finally got over there to taste this beer... Golden light orange coloured with a good head that holds nice and sticks nice to the glass. Smell is spices, yeast and malts, taste is also yeast, spiced, light bitter from hops that gets trough. A bit citrusy, but not overwhelming. Good brew.

13/02/2011 - from tap @ de Garre (2011-54)
Cloudy orange yellow beer, enormous white creamy head, stable and adhesive. Aroma: malts, yeast, hops, candi sugar, and good deal of alcohol (not surprising). MF: soft carbon, full body. Taste: sweet malts and alcohol sweetness, countered by a fair amount of hop bitters, somewhat fruity. Numbing alcohol in the back of the throat. Aftertaste: hops, some fruityness, grapefruit and exotic fruits. A very hoppy and tasty beer!
