nephirem (622) - CROATIA - MAR 25, 2017
Bottle, 0.33l. Slightly cloudy copper pour with slight red hue. One finger creamy white head with average retention. Lasting thin layer. Pleasant nose, yeasty and malty with a herbal touch. Medium body with smooth texture. Pretty high on carbonation, lively on the tongue. Malt sweetness and alcohol bitterness mixed well for nicely balanced taste. Aroma of malt, yeast, herbs and liquor. Caramel and toffee. Slight wood and nuts notes. Subtle tartness as it warms up. Boozy finish, mostly dry, medium lasting. Overall, pretty good tripel. Tasty.

john44 (3392) - SW London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 18, 2017
Bottle. Pale yellowy gold in colour. Spicy (peppery; cloves & coriander). Fruity (citrus, banana, peach). Yeasty in the taste (but no floaties). Malty base. Sweet fruity leading to a dry finish. Warming alcohol very evident. (2008)

Luneylane (233) - Taipei City, TAIWAN - FEB 8, 2017
A bottle at the Cafe Bastille, near Tai Power Building. Aroma: rather sour, vinous fruits, sherry. Appearance: clear, gold, minimal lacing. Palate: full-bodied and oily, soft carbonation, long, complex and very boozy finish. Taste: booze, clearly a heavyweight. Very astringent, perhaps too much so - I am no fan of candy flavour, but half way through the glass I found myself wanting just a little more sweetness.

Bottle in Kasteel glass, Lowlander, London. Aroma of honey, spice, bread. Pours a crisp golden with a finger of dense head. Tastes of bread and spice. Great beer.

3.2
Zilb (380) - Fontenay Sous Bois, FRANCE - JAN 28, 2017
Bue 1 an et 5 mois avant DLC. Blonde a petit col de mousse fine et tenue exceptionnelle. Carbo importante. Arôme de fruits secs : abricots, raisins, dattes. Pointe alcool (normal vu ses 11degres). Ronde sans plus pour son taux d’alcool. Final très maltée et alcoolisée. L’alcool n’apporte rien. Il lui manque quelque chose. Moyenne.

3.6
Demens (489) - Budapest, HUNGARY - JAN 14, 2017
0,33l bottle. Cloudy golden colour with quickly disappearing white head. Aroma: Floral, honey with leather notes and biscuit caracter. Taste: Sweet start with a lots of almond caracter. Has a light bitter mouthfeel. It’s tasty but a bit easy for the style. The alcohol isn’t in the taste but you can definitely feel the 11%. Medium/full body with fizzy carbonation. Medium lasting light bitter finish. Not the best and definitely not the most complex tripel.

3.3
Michael27 (2357) - Berlin, GERMANY - JAN 13, 2017
Aus der Flasche getrunken (Händlerlieferung). Hat alles, was ein echtes Tripel braucht.
