DrnkMcDermott (3161) - Downers Grove, Illinois, USA - MAR 10, 2008
33 cl bottle. Part of a sampler six of vSteen. beers from <a href=http://ratebeer.com/Place/illinois/oak-forest in Oak Forest, meaning it may have set awhile without air conditioning. Pours a pale yellow in a tulip glass, with a tinge of red, and fluffy white head. Heavy smell of Belgian sugars and a suggestion of wheat malts that I’m pretty sure are not there. Taste is immediately heady with alcohol and champagne effervescence, sweet and yet still pretty thick with malts. Despite having sat in the heat of a store, not much ale fruitiness here. Instead, it’s pretty well attenuated and turns dry a few sips later. Had it with some camembert cheese spread, which worked nicely. Some notes of straw, then noble and citrusy hops. Nice version of a style I like, anyway.

Cybion (197) - 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 (1400) - 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.

kapusil (1533) - 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.

janubio (938) - 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.

Winfryda (11) - 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 (308) - 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.

De geur is lekker fris. Normale schuimkraag. De smaak is lichtjes zuur, maar heel lekker.

Couleur or, légèrement trouble. Mousse crémeuse. Amertume prononcée et longue en bouche. Bon équilibre.

Effervescent. Dry with a hop presence. Just an OK triple. Sorry, I had to upload these old ratings. They were for me, not for uploading. And also I need 75 characters, hence this sentence. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

AcctError484021 (66) - - SEP 18, 2017
UPDATED: SEP 18, 2017 Bière blonde dorée avec une belle mousse blanche crémeuse. Au nez, assez sucrée, avec un peu d'alcool. Au gout, très pétillante, un léger goût de pomme verte, d'amertume en milieu de palais. Bonne bière pour une triple, bue peu être un peu trop fraîche, la granny reste en bouche bien après la dégustation.
