The BAB 401 I tasted last week here at Cambrinus was way better than the one I tasted from draught at the Second Bruges Beer Festival.
I’m very well surprised with this bottled BAB 401. excellent brewing by Marc Strubbe. And... a great choice from the BAB people!
BAB 401 has become a delicious 8.0 vol% hoppy Tripel. 3 Kinds of different hop varieties were used, which gave the beer that pleasant flowery, hoppy bitter, experience.
Folks, this is a tripel like it should taste. Crispy, hoppy, somewhat sweetish, not too dry, full bodied, pleasant soft without too much carbonation tingling.
Sampled at BAB 2016. Thnx for sharing, everyone ! Pours blonde, small white head. Smell is sweet, bitter, grainy, typical tripel. Taste is sharp, bitter, yeast, malty, fruity. Typical belgian profile. Creamy mouthfeel. OK carbo. Blank and standart. Bornyensis (321) - BELGIUM - DEC 8, 2015
Gelanceerd tijdens de jaarlijkse bierfestival in Brugge. Niet echt bijzonder. 77ships (9638) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - FEB 7, 2015
Thanks! Sampled draft@ BBF 2014. Pale citrus golden, artificial lemon, small white head. Nose is pure soap, sweet dough, rotting banana, artificial yeast,… Tastes & feels very watery, weak sugar, cardboard, chemical, weak sugar, dull yeast,… I can understand offering a beer that can please everyone as a festival beer but this just approaches nasty alcoholic dishwater,… Just not good all,… It comes with a pretty story behind it but it doesn’t safe from this beer tasting like rubbish.

(Bottle, Cambrinus, Brugge, 23 Oct 2014) Golden colour with frothy, white head. Malty, hoppy nose with white bread, grass and citrus. Malty, fruity taste with notes of citrus, grass, bread and a fairly dry finish with a fresh, grassy bitterness. Almost full body, with just a touch of sweetness. Fresh and tasty, dangerously easy to drink for its 8%. Quite nice. Bamsen78 (5336) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - OCT 16, 2014
Bottle @ Bierbrasserie Cambrinus, Brugge. Pours hazy lightish amber with airy but stable white head. Clear aroma of flowers, hops and yeast, with fruity and malty touches. Sweetish flavour of malt and fruit, complemented by bitter, hoppy notes and touches of citrus towards the finish. Lingering estery and hoppy aftertaste with citric notes. Decent.

Ik vond dit een zeer lekker biertje, van de eerste keer verkocht. Dit ga ik nog drinken Alengrin (5255) - BELGIUM - JUL 25, 2014
Strong Belgian blonde for the BAB (Brugse Autonome Bierproevers) but equally referring to the long-gone Brouwerij Aigle Belgica, once the largest Belgian brewery. Loosely structured but thick, snow white foam, colour a ’dirty’ golden blonde; aroma of peaches, caramel, leafy hops, bitter honey, rosewater; taste begins with a soft peachy fruitiness, then evolving to a sweetish pale maltiness, supple, finishing grassy and leafy hoppy, mildly bitter with a bit of warming, gin-like alcohol. Bit thin for a triple, more an ’edelbier’ in the style of Duvel and its offspring. PriorL (3068) - Gent, BELGIUM - FEB 3, 2014
Sample at Brugs Bierfestival 2013. Shared with Mathieu87, taken from notes. APPEARANCE: clear blond beer, nice stable off white head.
NOSE: grains, some fruits, little hoppy.
TASTE: some alcohol, quite fruity, little hoppy.
Decent in general. Dedollewaitor (16056) - Odense, DENMARK - JAN 20, 2014
Bottle @ Cambrinus, Brugge. Pours hazy golden with a creamy head. Yeast, dust, citrus and pine. A bottle from 2011 where the hops have vanished. Hmmh.. BB 2016. Trappist1 (646) - Diest, BELGIUM - NOV 18, 2013
White yellowish color, misty, hazy, white head, very light.
Subtile nose, yeast, malt, hops, hint of fruits on the back.
Some CO2, sparkling bitterness, refreshing, again some delicate fruitiness. This is the best way to describe this beer, delicate. Subtile in nose and taste, not breaking out, very well thought. very nice
