Enchanting and enlightening, this golden, frothy ale boasts an intriguing herbal aroma, warming alcohol esters on the tongue and light, but firm body to finish. Exotic spices add subtle notes to both the aroma and flavor. Strong, sensual and satisfying.

bastarda (300) - Freiburg, GERMANY - FEB 2, 2016
@bartlebier’s 1st episode of the bierhandlung’s tasting series; an extra two points for the choice of spices - galgant and turmeric - as they subtly highlight the tripel yeasts yellow aromas of light honey, almonds, marzipan, yellow stone fruits, muscat grapes. At 9,5 abv no alcohol heat. Well done.

bartlebier (2987) - Belchium im Biersgau, GERMANY - JAN 31, 2016
12oz bottles (bb..) at Biere mit Stil 1: Worldwide Tripel Tasting@Bierhandlung Freiburg JAN2016. - Darker beige-yellow pour. Reticent in the nose: odd dry spices, wet cereals, no abv whatsoever - but nothing luring me in either. - Has a dustiness in flavour like dried curry powder and dune sand - must be that galgant root and/or turmeric, cardamom? Flavour is minimal for a beer this big on ABV: some banana and old pineapple slices, drying hedgerow hop bitters with a whiff of citrus. Not getting much spicy phenols to turn of the spice heat or fruity esters to throw in some apple, pear of mango in the dish...while it is not an unpleasant sipper. - Had this twice since roughly 2012 and so far it has failed to really connect - yet for a tripel, this beer really tastes a bit dead inside: no real yeast character, mostly old spice.

arkurzynski (2010) - Combined Locks, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 14, 2016
Deep gold. Nose of bubblegum and Belgian yeast esters with mild fruit and a touch of booze. Flavor is sweet Belgian candy, bubblegum, yeast, and candied citrus. Smooth drink, but too sweet.

Pours a clear yellow color with little lacing. Head stays a while. Smells and tastes like bananas and booze. A decent beer, but weird for me. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
