DanielBrown (4394) - Birmingham (via Leicester), West Midlands, - OCT 27, 2012
Bottle at Sean and Rushes, Leicester. Pours cloudy yellow, with a ring of froth. Smells beautiful: lemon, wheat, Belgo yeastiness. Taste is beautifully dry; packed with lemon, which squelches; pockets of pin-prick sweetness. Beautiful mouthfeel. A delightful beer. Really tremendous.

Grumpelmies (71) - North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - DEC 9, 2016
Bottle. Cloudy yellow with a nice fluffy head. Aroma of grass, straw, yeast, dried fruits and hops. Taste is apple, sugar, spicy, grassy, bready. Very long and bitter finish. Theres a lot of going on in the aftertaste. Very tart and dry. Reminds me of a real heavy cider without the sweetness. Strong carbonation. Nice creamy mouthfeel. Very well crafted and balanced. One of the few Triples I really enjoy. De La Senne proves to be one fine consistent brewery. Great.

On tap at Buskers in Rome-Italy. Quite cloudy golden bright color, white foam with retention and drafts. Nose in the between the spicy yeast and the caramel. Some peach too. Mouth: watery start, spicy sweet again with a slightly bitter finish.

Bottle at the brewery. More sweet than expected from a tripel, but that is ok with me. Moderate to light high spiciness.

Au travers de sa Jambe de Bois, la brasserie de la Senne nous dmontre quune ligne pure est un moyen privilgi pour mettre en avant lamertume. Et quand on a la passion de lamertume que peut avoir cette brasserie 100 % bruxelloise, le rsultat ne peut tre que des meilleurs. En verre, la bire est blond clair, pare dun lger voile et surmonte dune mousse blanc casse, crmeuse, dun demi centimtre dpaisseur. Au nez, le houblon est dj trs affirm avec des armes floraux allis de la coriandre aux crales et une pointe de citron. A la dgustation, le houblon est roi. De lattaque au final, sur des armes de pamplemousse, de poires avec un brin de pinde. Les notes pices vont quant elles crescendo crescendo jusquau final qui laisse en bouche des armes poivrs. Lintensit et la corpulence sont apprciables mais cest par sa longueur en bouche que la Jambe de Bois sexprime, avec, une amertume stable et franche. Lquilibre trouv avec le malt (un peu plus prsent lattaque), le sucre et lalcool (8% abv sintgrant parfaitement) permet de soutenir lamertume en la rendant trs facile dapproche. En conclusion, cette triple sans tre une "rvolution" permet de dmontrer quil est toujours possible de rinventer le genre, au risque cependant de dsorienter les amateurs des triples plus classiques.Mais le rsultat est ici de toute beaut.

Banzale (113) - FRANCE - NOV 3, 2016
Acheter Tabac&co palais des bires dans famiflora dottignies. Bouteille de 33 cl. Couleur jaune ple/dore trouble. Jolie col de mousse . Au nez cest fruite et houblonn, un peu de fracheur. En bouche le fruit est de la parti type agrume lger. Citron et orange sanguine. Mais aussi une note houblonn et fruit type abricot, prune ? Un arrire long et riche , moelleux. Lalcoolisation est fine et digeste ! Agrable presque excellent mais pas loin !

PlutonowyMan (566) - POLAND - OCT 27, 2016
UPDATED: OCT 27, 2016 Barwa ??ta, s?omkowa, mocno zm?tniona. Piana bia?a, niska o ?redniej trwa?o?ci.Aromat owocowo przyprawowy, w?rod owocw najwyra?niejsza jest pomara?cza i brzoskwinie. Po ogrzaniu w aromacie pojawia si? pieprz.Smak podobnie, brzoskwiniowo pomara?czowy, przyprawy, g?wnie pieprz, nieco kolendry.Na finiszu sucha, chmielowa goryczka, niby IBU 49 ale odczuwalna jest du?o ni?sza. Wysycenie ?rednie, bardzo mi odpowiada.

Saeglopur (1827) - Vienna Woods, AUSTRIA - OCT 25, 2016
330 ml bottle from BeerLovers.
Dark golden, hazy body, with some floating yeast and a big, fluffy, lacing, off-white head.
Aroma of bread, flowers, honey, grass, citrus, some spices.
Tastes of grass, flowers, herbs, citrus, honey, sweet bread, spices, some alcohol.
Medium, a bit creamy mouthfeel, with an average carbonation.
Finishes dry, medium spicy, medium yeasty, floral, a bit herbal, bready, a bit sweet, moderate alcohol warming.

Very nice. Drinks smooth, alcohol is there, but not overwhelming. Greatly balanced as always from De la Senne, with a lovely mix of hoppy, floral, spicy, dry and smooth sweet notes. Overall not my favourite Tripel, but a relly enjoyable one nonetheless.
