blackisle (2455) - IJburg, - AUG 21, 2014
Bottle 33cl. Hazy to cloudy straw color, a lot of bubbles, small frothy white head, good retention and lacing; fruity nose, rich aroma of apricot, tropical fruits, orange peel, wheat, yeasty, coriander, lemon grass, taste is light sweet, medium bitter, wheaty, fruity; medium to full body, oily texture, lively carbonation; mild bittersweet finish, fruity notes, alcohol well-hidden. Nice and tasty, not a middle of the road tripel.

Alengrin (5156) - BELGIUM - JAN 13, 2017
Bottle from the Mitra shop in Lelystad. Apparently a beer company now brewing at 7 Deugden, but until four years ago a micro brewery in its own right; my second beer in this Saense series. Medium thick, egg-white head, quickly dissolving into thin islands of foam in the middle and a well-retaining, densely moussy edge; pure, ochre-hued old gold robe with a haze of yeast particles throughout. Aroma of cooked potato, banana and indeed bubblegum, wet hay, camomile, old cheese, jenever, unripe pear, sweetbread, green apple peel, coriander seed, rhubarb, powder sugar, minerals, old cake, sourish peach, and a vague, but unmistakably clear, sulphuric presence of DMS (cooked white cabbage). Fruity onset, some sweet banana isoamylacetate but not exagerrated, hints of green pear, stewed rhubarb and raw pineapple, sweetishness mixed with some gooseberry-like sourishness, minerally carbo but fit for the style, smooth and full, lean, somewhat soapy mouthfeel, made softer by the oats and slicker by the wheats. Cereally and very lightly caramelly malt base, a bit bready even especially after adding the sediment, but with a sharper, slightly wry grainy edge too which I assume represent both the wheat and the oats; in the finish, a glow of white rum-like alcohol manifests itself, lending it a warming, but also lightly astringent effect initially, though this seems to be mitigated by an earthy, very slightly starch-like, bready yeastiness, some soapy coriander (but fortunately kept relatively subtle), and leafy, floral, soft hop bitterishness after the sediment has been added. The malt sweetness and even the sweet banana ester keep dominating as the beer goes down the throat. A bit too alcoholic even for a tripel, with this somewhat annoying white candi sugar and banana ester sweetness lingering at times when they should have already disappeared: I truly believed 7 Deugden, which has produced more than one decent beer, could have been capable of delivering a tripel true to the ultimate Westmalle standard - because beers like this usually cling to that even if there are already too many tripels around in the Netherlands and a lot more so in Belgium - but this one disappoints a bit. I probably had too many tripels already in my beer rating time but this does not add anything to the style at all, it merely positions itself on the sweeter side of the range, with a very - overly - boozy aftertaste to it; making things worse, it suffers from DMS, which I am extremely sensitive to. Point off for both the DMS and the badly hidden alcohol, even though otherwise it is still fairly decent from a purely technical point of view and I probably would have enjoyed it a lot more without those two major flaws.

DijkBier (339) - AMSTERDAM, NETHERLANDS - NOV 20, 2016
Renewed acqaintance with this tripel. Bottle at home pours hazy golden, with hardly any white head. Terrific fragrant aroma and full taste, both medium sweet and little bitterness, of ripe yellow fruit (peach, tropical fruits, little banana), honey & fudge. Low carbonation. Easy drinkable and accessible, but delicious tripel. (By the way: since 2016 brewed in De Hoop instead of Anders).

Tjeerd (504) - GERMANY - JUL 10, 2016
Not bad at all.i do not like the labels on the bottles. They all look the same, and the Beers alk look the same: hazy Amber, No Head. But this Tripel is quite good, esp. Since it is Dutch!

heman (923) - Tychy, POLAND - JUL 9, 2016
Barwa złota, piwo lekko mętne, piana skąpa, redukuje się do obrączki. Aromat intensywnie przyprawowy i owocowy: mirabelki, morele, jabłka, banany. W smaku zaskakująco gładkie i kremowe. Mieszanka owocw jak w aromacie, biszkopta i nut przyprawowych, korzennych. Goryczka niska, drożdżowa.

Bottle split at ChrisO tasting, London. It pours a clean golden color with medium white head. Aroma is doughy, sweet with caramel, starch, light veggies. Taste has more unfinished notes of starch, veggies, caramel and toffee. Medium bodied with ok carbonation. Yet another very bad tripel at this tasting, wow

Tap @ Ledig Erf, medium sample. Clear golden color, medium frothy off-white head. Aroma of spicy yeast, slight peppery, bit flowery hop. Soft bitterness, spicy, bit dry. Easy going tripel. Decent stuff.
