Triple de 8 % abv avec, comme dit le brasseur «du malt blond fin, de l’eau douce, du houblon aromatique (beaucoup) et une levure fruitée ». Elle est brassée selon des méthodes traditionnelles et refermentée, bien entendu (pour une triple..). Mon exemplaire a été embouteillé le 15 juin 2013 et était proposé pour une durée de 5 ans... donc jusqu’en juin 2018. Quel plaisir de voir des brasseurs qui sont sûrs de leur produit à ce point... Ce n’est pas le cas de tout le monde !!! J’en connais un dans le sud de la France qui demandait de boire sa bière dans les deux mois au maximum, en levant les bras au ciel si on proposait plus longtemps !!! Couleur doré soutenu brillant, à la clarté nette. Bulles fines et vives, principalement en fontaine centrale, splendide. Mousse blanche soyeuse et stable. Arômes d’un magnifique malt, fruits blancs, houblon frais, pain, croûte de pain. 1ère bouche souple sur un superbe ensemble malt/houblon, avec un malt de caractère. Arrière-bouche complexe, équilibrée, très belle. 2ème aux splendides saveurs malt/houblon, avec une pointe de butterscotch. Arrière-bouche avec une amertume fine, précise, de haut vol. 3ème avec des fruits blancs, du houblon, un peu de chêne neutre. Arrière-bouche très équilibrée, avec du caractère. Longueur au superbe développement de l’amertume. Jambes fines, serrées, groupées. Levure douce, fine, fruitée, très belle ligne. Alcool de très bon niveau, très efficace, il dirige les saveurs et l’équilibre. Finale qui trouve encore de nouvelles nuances, dont du tabac blond. CONCLUSION : triple avec de la classe pure, brassée chez de Ranke (ça aide...), mais je ne voudrais pas enlever à ce magasin-brasseur le mérite de cette recette remarquable en tous points.

erickok (5108) - Leuven, BELGIUM - FEB 9, 2016
Golden light misty body, large bubbly head, almost perfect looks for the style. Moderate amount of classic noble hops, fresh green leaves, crispy biscuit malts, soft sweaty yeast. Okay. Taste is much better and more prominent with full malty sweetness, light raisin-y even, very long alcohol warmth, pleasant bubble. Not so interesting to smell, but it tastes great, above expectation! (33cl bottle from Dranken Pauwels I think)

JefVerstraete (2772) - Oosterzele, BELGIUM - MAY 11, 2015
Bottle as a gift. Golden colour, white foam. Medium carbonation. Fruity with notes of peach and banana. Light spicy aftertaste. Well balanced. Good tripel.

SinH4 (2335) - Garching b. München, GERMANY - FEB 20, 2015
Orange color with medium white head. Sweet and biscuity, flowery. Taste is sweet and flowery, not very boozy. I’ve had many Tripels like this in the last few days.

Alengrin (4267) - BELGIUM - NOV 6, 2014
Precursor of Guldenberg, which the brother of the current De Ranke brewer already made as a hobby brew for beer shop Bacelle in Wevelgem - Guldenberg is an altered version of it. Wevelgemse Tripel is still made today and has a sticky, thick, creamy, snow white head and deep ’old gold’ colour, a bit hazy but a darker and fully cloudy peach blonde with deposit. Fruity and malty aroma with floral hops, pineapple, orange peel, apple juice, peach, white candi sugar, ginger, honey, white pepper. Fresh fruity onset with orangey touch, minerally carbonation, honeyish and caramelly malt sweetness, peppery and grassy hop bitter finish with clear alcohol, on the brink of becoming astringent. Does taste like a less noble, ’raw’ version of Guldenberg, but still a very decent tripel.

The Etruscan (607) - Tuscany, ITALY - MAY 31, 2014
Creamy white weak head. Deep golden colour. Aroma is malty, fruity with apricot and light spicy notes Flavor is malty too with fruity (pear and apple) tones, ending in a moderately hoppy finish. Medium bodied.

Davvero una tripel con le palle. Riempie il palato con un mare dolce e leggermente fruttato, con note di caramello e biscotto, che scivolano su un letto lievemente terroso. Ben ammortizzato il grado.

75 cl. bottle sampled @ GBF 2013 as “Janus Triple”. Bright hazy orange with little white head. Nose is orange, flower petals, sweetish yeast, touch white bread,… Taste is sweet hay, sweet BE yeast, light hay and pepper in the back, touch sugar and light toffee, touch fruity. Hay and yeast body full. Not per se the best De Ranke beer but still a very nice beer. Thx! to the RB Crew for sharing.

JorisPPattyn (9242) - Ursel, BELGIUM - AUG 18, 2013
Small off-white head over fully hazy yellow to orangeish beer. Dry nose, yeast, estery, suggesting sweetness. Dry, grainy, and lots of dried hops. Bit herbal, wry but not crude. Some hints at maltsweetness. Dry - at the edge of dry-out effect. Alcohol hidden. Good De Ranke. Original - or Wevelgemse?
Earlier Rating: 11/12/2006 Total Score: 3
Hazy amber beer with just a small whitish rim. Neutral nose with some warm grain, some spices (possibly the yeast). Warm grain again, Band-aid, dried garden herbs. Light to medium bodied. Aftertaste is slightly herbal. And what was the idea here?
