ricordo una birra sullo stile tripel/ipa.. tutte quelle dello zbf sono da riassaggiare ma questa spiccava per avere tutte le caratteristiche tripel e un piacevolissimo finale amaro luppolato zbf 2013

77ships (8968) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - FEB 7, 2017
Thank you for sharing kraddel + tderock + Rubin77! Sampled bottled @ Bruges Beer Festival 2017. Near clear orange, white head. Nose is vegetable, hay, sugar, nasty insecticide notes, vegetable, low cheese. Taste is corn, vegetable, insecitice, herbal, paint, perfume. Body is chemical, paint, fizzy. Unpleasant beer but maybe a bad bottle since the other ratings on here seem respectable.

erickok (5753) - Leuven, BELGIUM - APR 14, 2016
Cloudy orange, small stable head. Sweet orange, candy, little classic hop undertone. Light farmy and quite estery. Soft sweet with big bitter bubbles. Light warming alcohol in the beginning, softer ending. Nice. Much tastier than expected to be honest. Almost feels like its accidentally a very spot on recipe, but I do like it a lot! (33cl bottle from De Lambiek)

Bov (12477) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - MAR 5, 2016
from Schoentjes - cloudy golden-orange beer under a huge creamy white head; long lasting; aroma of green apples, gently spicy; quite tart, medium-bodied, fairly sweet yet decently dry finish; peppery, candied fruits and citrus, cardboard; fizzy - a bit chaotic yet not without interest

Alengrin (5006) - BELGIUM - SEP 12, 2015
Bottle from Bezoekerscentrum De Lambiek in Alsemberg. Gusher, had to catch the beer in the glass with speed and caution but could not prevent it from overflowing. Very thick and spectacularly rocky, audibly crackling, very coarse, egg-white, irregular head leaving papery lacing but consisting of instable, large bubbles; deep yellowish golden blonde colour, clear with fierce sparkling, champagne-like, becoming a murky ochre with deposit. Aroma of sourdough, sharp redcurrant, bubblegum, mango, green apple peel, honey, peach, freshly cut nettles, gin, dried banana, rhubarb, straw, old cloth, dried and dusty old flowers, white bread, young cheese, earth. Estery onset, crisp, with lots of gooseberry, some apple peel, starfruit and Confrence pear as well as typical Belgian tripel-like banana, spritzy but a bit overcarbonated bringing a certain sourishness; bready middle phase, still relatively light in view of the ABV, sweetish and just a tad caramelly but not quite, while the uncontrolled bready yeastiness dances along but somehow manages to hold back, also because of the overcarbonation; finish is continuing, simple malt sweetishness plus a deep, earthy and leafy but very effective hop bitterness as well as powdery yeastiness (especially in the end, of course) and a deep glow of warming, jenever-like alcohol going down deep into the chest. I hate strong gushing and this one was a bit out of control, so I did expect a wild Belgian yeast profile and that is exactly what I got; still, there were no serious off-flavours and it does have the overall profile of a triple: malt sweet and a bit estery, with deep hoppiness and warming alcohol in the end. A bit clich (and sweet) perhaps as I would never pick this one out of the dozens of other standard Belgian tripels, and too bad for the gushing, but otherwise quite alright and enjoyable. Probably better when it is more fresh than the bottle I got. In this form: very typically a Belgian tripel, so mission accomplished, and an extra appreciation for truth to style.

yespr (42642) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - MAR 22, 2015
33 cl bottle. Pours cloudy yellow with a white head. Aroma is dry, phenolic and toasted malty. Caramelish and slight fruity. Toasted and quite bitter, dry and slight herbal into the finish.

corkyrory66 (1772) - BELGIUM - OCT 20, 2014
Bire triple refermente non filtre de 8% abv. Nous verrons plus tard que son classement est discutable Elle est faite de malt dorge et de malt de bl. Mon exemplaire est juste date. Couleur dor soutenu brillant. Clart nette. Bulles moyennes par centaines, trs vives. Mousse blanche trs paisse avec quelques cratres en haut. Armes de citron doux, pamplemousse, malt clair, fruits blancs, bois blanc. 1re bouche soyeuse sur de trs belles notes, avec des herbes aromatiques. Arrire-bouche bien quilibre malt/houblon. 2me la texture superbe, due vraisemblablement au froment. Saveurs originales strictement base dherbes. Arrire-bouche la belle amertume. 3me bouche herbace trs originale. Arrire-bouche frache, nette, propre. La longueur procure un nez vraiment original. Les bouches sont avec essence de cerfeuil, persil, ciboulette dans un mlange savant, et tout fait indit. Les jambes sont marques. La levure est douce, prcise, pointue. Lalcool est bien progressif sur lensemble. La finale trouve de nouveaux crneaux, un peu sur les pices, mais toujours en moelleux. CONCLUSION: une bire de grande classe qui sest trouv une niche rare: la triple herbace Mais elle pourrait tre classe ds lors en spice/herb/vegetable, puisque la catgorie existe!!!

Voor een tripel was dit een echte teleurstelling. Niet veel smaak aan dit bier.
