DarkElf (3062) - La Jolla, California, USA - MAR 15, 2012
14-Mar-12 (750-ml bottle)
This is decidedly not a sweet style of Belgian Tripel; the beer is more a hoppy, herbal, and spicy example rather than sweet or fruity. Aromas of grass hops, dried herbs, table grapes, and bready malt lead into flavors of coriander, pepper, hay, stone fruit, and bready, grainy malt. The beer is fully attenuated, very dry, no obvious sweetness is apparent, and the hops and herbs contributed light-medium bitterness. Medium-full in weight without the benefit of any sugar, and carbonation is medium to medium-high, but still smooth. Hazy, golden in color, and capped by nearly an inch of off-white head that settles to a dusty sheet. Overall, a different kind of Tripel, and one that I really appreciate. Im less of a fan of the sweeter style of Tripel, and Im pleased that this one is dry, hoppy, and herbal.

Rasmus40 (19756) - Beder, Aarhus, DENMARK - MAR 19, 2017
Bottle @ Aba-Jour, Ghent. Clear dark golden with a white head. Aroma is sweet, malty, yeasty and spicy. Flavor is quite sweet and rather bitter. Dry and rather bitter finish. The spiciness takes a couple of sips to get used to, but then it works okay. 190317

Agrable surprise que fut la dgustation de cette Graal Triple. Et commenons de suite par son point fort : son amertume, puissante en intensit, longue avec des armes fleuris, sur des notes de pamplemousse et arrondie par une trs lgre pointe de candi. Mais reprenons les choses dans lordre. La brasserie De Graal est une jeune brasserie (2002) qui est spcialise dans les bires " la demande", tout en brassant sa propore gamme. Cette De Graal Triple se prsente avec une robe blond-clair, trouble par un lger voile et surmonte dune mousse blanche, onctueuse de 1,5 cm. Le nez est trs classique dune triple, crales, cirton et coriandre au programme. Lattaque est timide, sur des armes de crale et de pche. Larrive de lamertume nen est que plus marque. Intense, agrable et longue en bouche. Un vritable plaisir. Lalcool (9 % Abv) est bien intgr et ne se sent que peu. Excellent quilibre global. Nous sommes dans un plaisir simple, efficace, mais trs bien trouv. Quant aux dfauts de cette bire...le manque de complexit en est le principal, avec une corpulence qui aurait pu tre un peu plus muscle. Mais on saura lui pardonner.
