corkyrory66 (1796) - BELGIUM - JUL 21, 2016
Triple dabbaye reconnue, dont ltiquette affiche une antriorit 1789 a ne sinvente pas!!! Brasse chez Van Steenberge pour une abbaye de prs dAntwerpen, mais la Belgique ne pose pas ce genre de question!! Niveau abv important de 9 %. Mon exemplaire tait 8 mois aprs sa date. Couleur dor moyen, lgrement mat. Bulles fines en fontaine centrale, par centaines, trs vives. Mousse blanche fins flocons, stable 4 mm. Armes de malt clair, girofle, pointe de citron, oignon blanc, piment lger. 1re bouche souple lentame malt/houblon, avec une amertume lgrement piquante. Arrire-bouche plutt sur le houblon, mais avec un fond malt, longue. 2me la belle volution, sur des saveurs plus pleines. Arrire-bouche avec un houblon lgrement fleuri, longue. 3me la texture qui spaissit, et aux saveurs assez denses. Arrire-bouche trs agrable. Longueur avec de trs beaux moments, mais une certaine imprcision dans lharmonie. Jambes fines, longues. Levure douce, un peu pice, ligne correcte. Alcool trs beau, progressif, il soutient la longueur. Finale au bel quilibre malt/pice. CONCLUSION: jai toujours eu un peu de mal avec cette bire, et pourtant elle a de trs beaux cts. Elle tient trs bien la route, mais ne peut tre dans le top. Une digne abbaye donc cistercienne par ailleurs (mais "ceci ne nous regarde pas"...).

Gurthnar (5577) - Bratislava, SLOVAK REPUBLIC - JUL 13, 2016
Bottle. Typical trippely high spiciness, with slightly unpleasant apple presence, and some alcohol. Rather poor drinking for me. Classic tripel though. Eh.

kidmartinek (4999) - austin, Texas, USA - JUN 21, 2016
Pours gulden with a broken bubble white head that sticks like great stuff to the glass. Aroma is sharp ferment. It foams a lot on intake. Hahaa. All that fuzz fizz makes it difficult to taste.

Kita (2068) - Koper, SLOVENIA - JUN 20, 2016
Bottle, 0.33l, courtesy of CanCrusher. Pours clear deep golden with medium creamy white head and sparkling appearance. Taste starts moderate sweet grainy, follows sour grassy, yeasty and mild medicinal, mouthfeel is warming and alcoholic, while finish is moderately bitter. Medium body, slick texture and fizzy carbonation in palate. Quite hoppy tripel, not the best, but drinkable...

rauchbier (3866) - Isle Of Beer, Lincolnshire, ENGLAND - JUN 18, 2016
Bottle, from Lidl. Straw gold, vast fluffy pillows of white foam, quickly thinning to a dense sheen, insistent condition. Estery sweet notes with a slightly oxidized note, biscuits and honey, and a gentle spiciness in the nose. Sweet in the mouth with low undercurrents of yeast and esteriness, some hints of grain and a warming alcohol note, a gentle spicy bitterness and a light grapefruit citrus tang cuts the sweetness a little. Finish is estery and sweetly sticky with lots of retronasal alcohol, faintly metallic, and with a gentle spicy bitterness lingering.

Garrold (4939) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JUN 16, 2016
Bottle. Lidl. Hazy, honeyed gold. Frothy, lasting, white head. Nice hoppage to this, among the barley sugar malts. Bit of apricot and grapefruit and such. Taste is sweet and yeasty. Some soft bitterness. Mouthfeel is foamy and full. A tad boozy, maybe. Some tooth numbing going on. Finishes a little dry, with a lingering hop bitterness. Tasty gear, not far off a complete winner. Lidl did good with this set of beers.

UjoKlobasa (853) - SLOVAK REPUBLIC - JUN 16, 2016
Bottle. Pale yellow, almost watery color, clear liquid, white head. Smell of banana. Aroma of banana, whiskey, oak, smoke, alcohol. Taste is medium bitter. Pleasant.
