tkaufman (128) - Lewis Center, Ohio, USA - SEP 29, 2003
A nice golden pour with a huge cauliflower head. Unfortunately the beer peaked before I took my first sip. Slightly alcoholic and not a whole lot of flavor. A decent trippel.

minutemat (6254) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - JAN 17, 2018
330ml bottle re-badged as 'Maerlant Damse Tripel' @ Kauwackers. Pours gold with a light mist, large white head. Aroma has some familiar yeasty tripel aromatics. Soft fruity yeasty character, very light spice, hints of vanilla with a soft enduring sweetness. Enjoyable entry-level tripel.

zacgillbanks (5661) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - JAN 5, 2018
Bottle from Lidl, Wrekenton, Gateshead. Pale golden, almost clear coloured with a very large white rocky head of foam. It has a pear drop and pineapple flavour with spicy fruity notes and warming spices on the smooth lemon, slight tart fruity finish. Not bad.

Une belle mousse blanche et dense. Une jolie bulle. Saveur sur le fruit acide. L'amertume reste bien en bouche. Manque un peu de personnalité pour y revenir une autre fois.

velocitractor (2) - Thornaby, Durham, ENGLAND - DEC 27, 2017 does not count
Pours slightly cloudy, big head. Sweet smelling, taste slightly more bitter than the smell suggests. Highly carbonated. Drinkable, but nothing special.

Cybion (198) - Kent, ENGLAND - DEC 12, 2017
Bottle, 330 ml. Pours clear light yellow/straw coloured, with a large soapy white head and a lot of large bubbles visible. Patchy lacing. Aroma is sweet and spicy, lots of citrus, orange, clove, vanilla slight musk from the yeast. Light bready/honey malt backbone. Taste is sweet and slightly spicy/peppery upfront. More light fruity/citrus notes but unfortunately a somewhat unpleasant, damp cardboard character joining the fray here. Not much malt body and a bit watery towards the finish. Light bitter finish with cereal aftertaste and some alcohol burn. Light body, watery texture, moderate carb. Pretty disappointing for the style taste-wise but this was in a 6 pack of assorted strong belgian ales from Lidl (including some of my old favourites like Piraat and Gulden Draak) so I'm not complaining too much :)

Fules (1431) - Gyöngyös, HUNGARY - DEC 10, 2017
Hatalmas, nagyon lassan apadó hab, borostyán szín. Enyhe, fűszeres, tripeles illat. Tripeles, enyhén édeskés, korianderes ízek, némi fehérboros beütéssel. Közepesen testes, közepesen szénsavas, enyhén keserű. Finom, jól eltalát sör.

3.3
kapusil (1563) - Budapest, HUNGARY - DEC 5, 2017
UPDATED: DEC 5, 2017 0.33l bottle. Slightly hazy golden body with a huge white head. Strong doughy yeast comea first in the aroma, after that the grainy malts appear followed by some apples and floral/earthy hops. Taste of grains, pepper, yeast, honey and a generous amount of floral hops. The finish is quite bitter. Not super complex but enjoyable tripel.

3.2
janubio (976) - SPAIN - OCT 17, 2017
Golden colour, short head with very long retention. Good lace. Aroma has some grains and hops, green apples, bananas, spices. Medium body, slick palate, good carbonation. Taste of green apples, some lemosn, butter cookies, spices. Just an OK tripel, a bit light palate.

3.6
Winfryda (13) - Sosnowiec, POLAND - OCT 6, 2017
Bottle. Pale, clear, little white head. Nothing really happens in the aroma, a little fruit, banana, ctrus, touch of yeast. Taste is richer, fruit notes mostly. Alcohol very well balanced, only a suggestion on a back of the tongue. Really good.

Jingis (424) - Bratislava, SLOVAK REPUBLIC - OCT 5, 2017
Zakupene v lidly. Farba taka zlatista do bleda. Vona prijemna sladkasta. Chut zaujimava. Na zaciatku akokeby som pil sampus. Chut je skvela az ku koncovke.
