Brodie's rating

3.7
Brodie (540) - Boone, North Carolina, USA - SEP 29, 2006
Bottle from MJ Rare Beer Club. Fruity aroma - lots of orange with underlying plum, melon, and floral notes. Light peppery and earthy yeast character, gently honey sweetness. Orange-golden color, good clarity, huge pillowy white head. Lightly sweet up front, biscuity malt, mild fruit and floral flavors. Finishes decidedly dry with a subtle spiciness, with just a touch of bitterness lingering on the palate. Medium body with high carbonation, typical for a tripel, noticable alcohol warmth in the chest. I think this is a drinkable but interesting (and underrated) tripel.

MrW (664) - Mechelen, BELGIUM - MAY 30, 2017
Bottle 33cl at a bar on De Grote Markt of Aalst Aroma is grainy, not that rich, classic tripel, fruityness. Pours misty blond, white foamy head which leaves lacings and lasts some time. A nice little sparkling is constantly present. Taste is sweet, typical tripel, floral. Slow bitter finish, light fizzy mouthfeel.

erickok (6037) - Leuven, BELGIUM - MAY 25, 2016
Little funky start, then golden malts. Some cereal like sweetness ss on taste, a spicy bite, nothing out if the ordinary. Not very clean and certainly not dry, but it all fits the style. More interesting start than the beer turned out to be. Decent brew though. (33cl bottle from Dekoninck)

3.6
heman (960) - Tychy, POLAND - APR 7, 2016
Klarowne piwo ma złota barwę, nalewa się z intensywną, ładną białą pianą. Aromat średnio-intensywny, pierwszy plan to słodkie jasne owoce: brzoskwinie, morele, mirabelki. W tle subtelne nuty ziołowe. Piwo jest mocno wysycone i lekko słodkie w smaku. Ponownie dominują żółte owoce - każdy łyk przypomina łyk kompotu owocowego. Drugi plan to nuty pieprzowe, a finisz to niska, ziołowa w posmaku goryczka. Alkohol dobrze ukryty.

3.5
ekstedt (6746) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - APR 2, 2016
Bottle (33 cl) from biresgormet.be. CLear golden, brief white head. Fruity aroma with some rubberish phenols and floral hops. Medium bodied, medium carbonation. Semi dry, low to medium bitterness.

3.4
karpik (1138) - Sosnowiec, POLAND - MAR 9, 2016
Fruity aroma with peach, some apricot and citrus. Pours golden with nice white head. Taste is a little bit too sweet for me, again fruity with spices. Low bitterness at the finish. Alcohol well covered. Overall just a solid tripel.
