Maakun (4458) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - JUN 16, 2016
Bottle shared thanks to sjogro. Clear golden with nice white head. Lots of sweet malts, sugar, cardboard, nice spicy yeast, sweet banana candy, sweet cream and marzipan, strong alcohol. Very sweet with strong alcoholic bitterness. Full bodied with medium carbonation and thin alcoholic finish. Its not that bad, but if it were more like 7% ABV it would be way better.

kidmartinek (4877) - austin, Texas, USA - JUN 15, 2016
Really cannot justify the adjuncts in this one. The hazed blonde appearance and 1/2 inch head are nice as is the foamy, sticky lace and soft buttery aroma of biscuit and fruit. The palate is cool and very soft. It comes off as a mild beer.

DraftDodger (1220) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - MAY 27, 2016
Copenhagen 27/5 2016. 75 cl bottle from Meny. Drawing of old buildings on the label. Looks more like a manison than a castle. Pours almost clear golden yellow with white head. Settles as solitary patches of foam floating around. Aroma of citric and sweet fruits, Black pepper, yeast and alcohol. Medium prickly carbonation and thick palate. Flavor has sugary sweetness followed by light bitterness. Yeast, Black pepper and a whiff of alcohol (it is hard to hide 11% completely). Semi dry finish. Very much on the sweet side - but a fine muscular Belgian.

Zware volzoete tripel die warm aandoet. Afdronk is wat bitter en de smaak is tamelijk alcoholisch. Prima degustatiebiertje.

UXO (1653) - CANADA - APR 7, 2016
Appearance: clear pale gold with one fat finger of fluffy white head, good retention and patchy lacing. (3/5) Aroma: apple and pear, stone fruit, candi sugar, boozy raisin, bready yeast. (7/10) Taste: moderate sweet, moderate bitter, light tart. (7/10) Palate: medium-light body, lively to moderate carbonation, sweet boozy finish. (4/5) Not bad at all. Definitely tending towards the sweet side of the tripel spectrum, but the integration of the very high ABV is quite good. As usual with these sweet tripels, I think Id like it better if it were dryer, but its definitely not terrible as it stands. (14/20)
