corkyrory66 (1802) - BELGIUM - JUN 19, 2013
Bire triple de 8 % abv, sur une recette originale de Claude van Nuffel brasse par la Proef brouwerij. Couleur dore lgrement orange brillante. Clart nette. Bulles fines et vives partout dans le verre. Mousse blanche paisse et crmeuse avec des petits cratres. Armes de pain dpices, figues, macarons, pomme vapeur, pointe de muscade. 1re bouche douce sur le malt, les pices et le pain blanc frais. Toute petite pointe de kirsch. Arrire-bouche sur une belle amertume. 2me bouche plus pleine, avec du malt un peu fum, amertume fine, un peu dpices, une pointe de poivre blanc. 3me bouche avec diverses nuances de crales et de fruits blancs.Arrire-bouche plaisante. Longueur avec de la poire, une pointe de cognac, de la pte damandes, du chne blanc. Levure trs construite, un peu sale. Alcool bien dos, correct. Finale agrable, pourtant sans relle complexit. Conclusion: une bire curieuse certains niveaux, un peu juste dans son milieu en sensations en bouche, et finale un peu courte. Pour le reste, trs agrable.

Gold blond beer with a nice white head. Spicy and breadlike aroma and taste. Nicely balanced. Cinnamon? Very nice. It doesnt always have to be a bitter beer.

bask (305) - Leuven, BELGIUM - AUG 11, 2005
Golden color with a medium white head. Lots of little bubbles. Broad aroma, hoppy (orange, abricot) with a malty undertone. The taste is fruity, with a nice sweet finish. I like this one.

Boutip (6208) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 25, 2007
Bottle: Poured a deep golden color ale with a huge pure white head with good retention and some lacing. Aroma consists of Belgian malt with some light spices which may include white pepper. Taste is a well balance mix between some semi-sweet Belgian malt, spices and light yeasty finish. Body is quite full with some excellent carbonation and no alcohol was detected. Nothing earth shattering to be found here but very good in any case.

MartinT (9729) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 12, 2007
My Bottom Line:
Banana esters and vanilla ice cream flow through a grassy and citrusy hop cologne in this lively and creamy Tripel.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A rocky, mountainous head of foam laces all around the cloudy beige golden.
-Carbonation is fluffy and active, as one would expect from this Belgian style.
-The mouthfeel is reasonably full, yet the overall effect is quite drinkable.
-Alcohol is not a factor in the flavor profile.
-The wheel has not been reinvented here, its just been replicated flawlessly. This was a mighty tasty surprise!

Bottled on 07/12/2006.

Bouteille de 33 cl. Couleur orange, trouble, joli col blanc de tenue trs correcte. Une triple fruite et pice assez archtypique de la tradition belge. Classique mais bien fait! Trouve Vanuxeem - Ploegstaert.
