tombyars (1672) - Saltcoats, SCOTLAND - NOV 12, 2016
750 ml bottle purchased at Marks & Spencer in Kilmarnock. Split with Mark cheers. Poured into chalice glass. Opaque orange amber with thick white head and plenty of flotsam! Malty aroma with candied jelly fruit. Syrupy mouthfeel with no lacing. Mixed malts give fruity base with oranges and barley sugar twist. Slight bitter aftertaste but fades away fast. Finish is malty with dryness in palate. A decent Belgian Tripel.

ManVsBeer (9761) - Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JAN 13, 2016
Bottle from Marks & Spencer, Halifax. Amber-orange with a thick head and plenty of sediment. Very palatable Belgian, certainly for its strength which is subdued by the ales character. This is a tasty mix of pale malts, dry yeasts and dryish fruits. Theres lots of aroma and a fairly smooth texture. 750ml corked bottle.

750ml bottle marked 8.5% ABV Corked. Poured hazy amber with lively white head, and acres of yeast clag in the bottle! Aroma is lemon lime citric, wheat. Taste is a sour lemon lime wheat stray and light malt mash. Bought this couple of years ago and left to mature until week before BBF date.

Cimbasso (886) - - OCT 3, 2014
A complex Tripel brewed in Belgium for Marks & Spencer. Pours a slightly cloudy (this beer is bottle-fermented) orange gold colour with a fluffy white head. Aromas of bread, orange peel and cloves. Very complex and vivid flavours of ripe banana, orange peel, apricots and cloves. Extremely mouth-filling, but the high alcohol content (8.5%ABV) is quite well-disguised. Very good balance between the sweet malts and fruity hops. The finish is long with biiter hops and Seville orange dryness. A real connoisseurs beer. Good for Marks & Spencer for making it easily available in the UK.

Garrold (4964) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JUL 27, 2014
Clear gold. Thin, tight, lasting head. Doughy. White pepper spice. Barely ripe orange. Taste is spicy dry. Soft, sweet, fruitiness. Palate is light oily. Soft carbonation. Feels quite boozy. Finish is fruity dry. Im happy to admit I wouldnt know a decent Tripel even if it smacked me on the arse, but I do like this...
