3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
colore bellissimo,rosso/ambrato carico con schiuma molto persistente.
al naso il fruttato del lievito ti aggredisce ma risulta molto piacevole.l’alcool è piuttosto presente nell’aroma.
corpo intenso,gusto molto deciso,l’alcool è forse un pò troppo pronunciato,anche nel finale dolce l’alcool si sente molto,luppolo poco presente,carbonazione ottimale.
birra sicuramente buona ma la pecca dell’alcool mi spinge a dare un voto non troppo elevato.resta sicuramente una ottima birra,ma la preferirei leggermente meno alcolica..sembra quasi aggiunto a crudo!
A beautiful abbey ale; barley malt. Yeast and fruit notes at the back of the palate with a lingering finish.

Nice substantial long lasting head. Surprising that this is a ten per center. Marmaladey and not sweet, quite bitter and hoppy in fact, unusual for a Belge triple. Solid, but it’s not astounding. Drink a few and youd’d fall down. 17Beer (415) - Connecticut, USA - NOV 18, 2017
11.2 oz bottle. Scents of big Belgian yeast and alcohol. Pours a dark orange with a big persistent rocky white head. Big tastes of yeast and leather. Pretty well balanced sours and sweets. Warming but not too much alcohol. Good carbonation with lots of lacing. A nice tripel. artemb (1187) - Chisinau, MOLDOVA - NOV 17, 2017

suszone brzoskwinie, nutka mosiądzu, karmel, śliwka, pomarańcza, w tle mleczna czekolada, po zabełtaniu brzydki spirytus;
ciało średnie, wysoko nasycone, krągłe;
karmel, suszona brzoskwinia, trochę wódki, trawiasto-alkoholowa goryczka, czekoladowy posmak;
mimo bogatych aromatu i smaku szału nie robi, dodatkowo efekt trochę psuje niefajnie wyczuwalny alkohol.
Clear amber beer with a bubbly white head. Sweet, floral smell. Taste is bready, fruit is quite tangy initially but mellows out a bit. Honey, malt, banana, zest. Rich and tasty with a lingering, sweet aftertaste that doesn't veer into sickliness, though I should have chilled it a bit more. Lovely. Bill Becker (1804) - Casper, Wyoming, USA - OCT 25, 2017
From Jun 2007
I'm pouring this from a 750ML caged and corked bottle.(best by 05 2009)
It has a medium gold colour and it's clear. The head of foam is pretty large and it has some nice lacing. The foam settles down after a few minutes but stays for the entire session as a solid fine layer. A good looker.
The smell is very fruity and I get some spiciness as well. A few more whiffs reveals a caramel malt base and some yeasty tones.
The taste has a lot of dark fruit, like plum and fig, and caramel malt that is pretty tasty. There's also some tartness and some yeast and the alcohol is noticeable but not offensive. Another sipping Tripel and as always, I'm going to take my time to enjoy this offering.
Swishing the Ale in my mouth, I notice a pretty substantial hop presence...there's a lot going on in my New Belgium chalice, for sure. One thing that kind of detracts from my liking it more is a not so pleasing bitterness that comes in near and through the finish. Still, this is a good Tripel in my book and I'd drink it again though I prefer the Chimay Tripel that I can get locally.(I got this from Liquorama)
The second pour gives me a cloudy orange-gold with more of the sweet malty goodness and less of the bitterness I'm complaining about and that's....a good thing. I'm drinking this at room temp and maybe I'll "chill" the bottle the next time I try it and let it warm up. A cold first pour will probably ge me better results....
Bottom line: Like I said, this is a good example of the style and is worth seeking out. Did it make my favourite Belgian Tripels list? No, but again, it's interesting and different enough to warrant a shot. Who knows...it may make your favourite Tripels list. bigweirdbox (3) - - OCT 22, 2017 does not count

Przyprawy, białe owoce, biszkoptowa słodowość, rozgrzewający alkohol. Średnie ciało, dość wytrawne, ze stosunkowo niewielką słodyczą i delikatnie kwaskowym finiszem. Wysokie wysycenie, goryczka średnia do niskiej. Mariox (337) - Warsaw, POLAND - OCT 14, 2017
Backlog, Pite w Antwerpii. Piwo charakterystyczne dla triple, ale jest dość przeciętne.
