330 ml bottle @ Restobières, Brussels. Slightly hazy golden/orange body with a medium sized off-white head. Quite mild but nice aroma of spices, fruit, yeast and a faint hint of caramel. Flavour is sweet, spicy, yeast and fruity. Nothing really specially going on, but it’s really refreshing and quite nice anyway. A bit less sweet that normally for Belgium trippel and that’s not necessary a bad thing.

Alengrin (2425) - BELGIUM - OCT 24, 2014
The first beer commercialized by the Verhuisbrouwerij, tasted in many of the Roman-numbered versions, but since this site does not make any difference between them, I won’t bother and consider all of them for rating this. It usually has a thinnish, sticky, cream white head and clear orange blonde colour; aroma of caramelly malts, honey, apricot, apple, ’jenever’, pear, orange zest, coriander. Taste is fruity, a bit ’citrussy’, caramelly malty backbone, spicy notes, grassy hop bitterish finish. Nothing innovative to this, just your plain and average, yet balanced Belgian tripel.

Bottle from Quali Drinks, Mechelen, consumed at Camping De Molen, Antwerp, Belgium, Saturday 8th February 2014. Pours hazy gold, bit sweet maybe and a bit simple perhaps but I’m rather liking it. Soft in mouth, yeast and spice, bitterness shows. Perhaps a little sweet spicy lemon. A6 A4 T7 P4 Ov13 3.4

Benzai (8908) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - JAN 15, 2014
Bottle (label says brew XIX) @ home shared with Dutchdrebus. A bit unclear orange color, medium sized white head that leaves good lacing. Smell and taste malts, lightly hops, fruitpeel bitterness. Medium body and carbonation. Not bad at all, nicely hopped tripel with a light fruity touch. Maybe a bit messy, but it tastes fine and after all that’s what it’s all about isn’t it?

Bottle @ benzai. Slightly hazy golden yellow to orange colour with a small to medium sized white head. Smells yeast, hint of banana, sweet, candy, sugar. Tastes malts, banana, herbs, yeast, sharp. Very dry beer, medium body. Hate how it dries up my mouth and throat.

EddyBeer1 (925) - Brussels, BELGIUM - SEP 24, 2013
Version XVIII. Orange-ambrée claire, effervescence moyenne-forte à bulles fines, col crémeux persistant. Amère d’emblée mais pas trop, les malts se faisant vite sentir, notes d’agrumes et d’épices. Une triple à l’ABV léger mais dont l’alcool se fait sentir par sa chaleur.
