Bottle. Gold with a white head. Aroma of light sugars, oranges and spices, light dough. Subdued sweetness with caramel, peaches, orange, biscuit, vanilla, coriander, white pepper, cloves. Alcohol very well hidden. Slightly syrupy mouthfeel beneath the yeast. Maybe the coriander’s a bit much towards the finish. Very English malt touches but very much a Tripel - and a good one.

Bottle, split with mcberko. Pours a cloudy orange amber with a dense foamy head. Aroma of citrus, coriander, some tropical fruits, honey, spice and yeast. Flavour of yeast, spice, coriander, herbal, citrus and funk. Dry, spicy, lovely flavours. Nice and light, yet full-bodied. BoBoChamp (5754) - Gent, BELGIUM - SEP 27, 2011
50cl, as Bede’s Chalice, English brew, from The Bottle Shop Canterbury, complex brew, sweet/spicy and slightly fruity, heavy, yet balanced, cloudy, rocky head, good brew ekstedt (7031) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - SEP 17, 2011
Bottle (50 cl) at Café 3 små rum, Göteborg, Sweden. Clear deep golden, medium white head. Fruity and slightly almondy aroma, with somespicy notes and herbal hops. Medium bodied, soft varbonation. Semi dry, medium bitterness. VertBaconStrips (2428) - Blerkablerka, VENEZUELA - SEP 10, 2011
Poured out a dull amber gold brew with a big quick foam up white cap that fizzles quickly. Smells like a tripel enough to satisfy. Yeast, slight sweetness that helps out, faint pepper spice, coriander, orange and peach - both a bit sweet and both work well to round out the aroma and give it depth. The flavour seems to improve with every sip. Here and there the sips start with alcohol and end with alcohol with a small bitter quality. Orange, yeasty spice, ok malts - what ever that means. This is probably a bit too tilted to the alcohol and spice being more dominant than other softer qualities so I am finding this not that interesting. Then again, I’m just not a big fan of tripels. The spice is solid. Medium bodied, ok carb, a decent beer actually.

500ml bottle from Brewery Creek in Vancouver. Pours a murky orange gold with decent off white head. Aroma is very pungent with citrus fruit, yeast, some spice, caramel. Taste has a dusty farmhouse quality. Some citrus fruit, peppery, full of yeast. Alcohol is there and warming but not over the top. Very tasty. mcberko (20253) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 6, 2011
500mL bottle, split with Matts_Property, pours a cloudy, murky dark orange with a lingering, two-finger white head. Aroma is quite spicy, with coriander, orange peel, yeast, caramel malt, and some dried fruit (like apricot). Flavour is quite funky / rustic like a saison, orange peel, coriander, with some farmhouse characteristics, with lots of yeast. Complex and dry mouthfeel. Really enjoyable. nealgersh (19) - South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - SEP 5, 2011
Golden, slightly cloudy appearance. Aroma of orange and malt, with the alcohol content popping through too. Wheaty orange, sweet malt flavours. Quite a subtle beer for its strength. Dry finish. I like it a lot. It’ makes a nice contrast or altenative to continental abbey tripels. presario (4925) - Stampede City, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 4, 2011
Bottle. Hazy dark amber with a lasting thin white head. Fruity aroma and flavour remind me of nectarines. Scent is a little powdery. Nice gentle flavour with deep apricot and nectarine flavour. Svesse (9124) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - AUG 4, 2011
(Bottle, Bishop’s Arms Vasagatan, Stockholm, 12 July 2011) Golden amber colour with frothy, off-white head. Malty, fruity nose with citrus, dried fruit, apricots and spicy hints of coriander. Fruity, malty taste with notes of citrus, apricots, marmalade, spices and coriander. More than medium body, fairly sweet. Nice one.
