Bottle from Cotteridge wines. Slight hazy rich golden cour with a thick white head. Aroma deep fruity, yeast spicy. Taste bitter with only a light sweetness. Certainly not that alcohol sweetness. Although the alcohol is evident.

Golden, slightly hazy, with a frothy sticky head. Taste is bread, banana, yeast... caramel malts, spicy finish... spiky alcohol presence... tasty stuff. Reassuring after the disastrous Buxton Dubbel AshtonMcCobb (7132) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAR 13, 2016
UPDATED: MAR 23, 2016 Bottle at Brauhaus.
Appearance - golden with a nice head and aonlight haze.
Nose - light spice candied orange and lemon. Bread.
Taste - as with nose there’s some sort of fruity bread and butter pudding going on.
Palate - medium bodied with a big tangy texture and a long dry tangy finish.
Overall - more like it. It even had the right bubbles you expect from an Abbey Tripel. Beersiveknown (5324) - NORTHERN IRELAND - MAR 8, 2016
bottle at home from Cotteridgejamestulloch (4510) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAR 7, 2016
full bodied, herbal, bitter, lots of yeast floral character, peppery, probably my favourite of the bunch, a classic tripel without the sweetness some in the style possess, finishes properly dry with good dose of bitterness, the alcohol is present but not aggressive - a la westmalle
Bottle. Hazy golden body with a medium white head. No visible carbonation. Faint lacing. Aroma of straw, white pepper, dust, lemon and melon rind. Flavour of biscuit, yeast and peppery spice. Medium body with a powdery texture. Hides the ABV well. Very nice indeed. Infinitely better than Buxton’s Dubbel.

Bottle from Cotteridge Wines; clear burnished amber pour with a thin white head, aroma has yeast and a hint of bubblegum, taste has sweet red fruits, a hint of caramel, some yeast and some spice in the finish. minutemat (6453) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - FEB 26, 2016
330ml bottle from Beer Gonzo. Pours hazy gold with creamy white head. Aroma is vibrant sweet tripel yeast. Taste is smooth, creamy, verging on the sweeter side of the tripel character. It lacks a little carbonation compared to its Belgian brethren, but thankfully the flavours sing loud and proud. A very enjoyable tripel, certainly one of the better English takes on the style.

I’ve rarely found a non-Belgian version of a classic Belgian style that hits the spot. This is one of the closest. Golden co!oured, with a touch of lacing though little head. Good frothy texture. Aroma of slight!y spicy each and pear. Taste has sweet syrup, light fruit and pepper. Very good.
