3fourths (9358) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - MAY 25, 2014
UPDATED: AUG 20, 2014 Bottle dated June 2013. Effervescent, lightly hazed amber with a tall-building white foam head. Sugar cookie Belgian Pale malt with a more moderate hop profile of grass, flowers and citrus. Medium-full body, sweet approach turning to drying, phenolic, bitter finish. Extremely clean nose, no trace of ethanol, malt is superbly soft, creamy and fine carbonation. Kind of a head scratcher that we are getting 11-month old bottles in Colorado just now (May 2014), and surprised to see it’s held up so well, a testament to the brewing skill at De la Senne, sure, but not all of their beers stand up to that amount of time (see Aug 2013 batch of Taras Boulba that showed up 6 months old and oxidized earlier this year).

melush (4737) - SPAIN - NOV 21, 2017
Tap @ Bier Kraft, Seville, Spain. Hazy amber colour with a medium size white head. Aroma is yeast, fruits, spices. Taste is yeast, citrus, fruits, spices, malt, alcohol. Medium body, average carbonation.

malrubius (3022) - Springfield, Vermont, USA - NOV 14, 2017
Bottle from Whole Foods. Hazy burnt orange with lasting ring and lace. Spice honey grassy aroma with a hint of white wine and booze. Medium-heavy sweet honey peach bready with medium-heavy for style earthy spicy herbal bitterness in fairly dry finish for level of sweetness. Medium body medium internal carbo with a little texture on the tongue. Pretty good. I don't think tripels need to be this bitter, but definitely not bad.

Villyzzz (454) - Espoo, FINLAND - NOV 4, 2017
Bottle at home. Pours hazy yellow with a tiny white head. Aroma has a winegum candy feel with mild hay and a touch of citrus. Taste is hoppy with malts and some yeast notes. Pretty nice and hoppy.

Fules (1375) - Gyöngyös, HUNGARY - OCT 12, 2017
Közepes, tartós hab, narancsba hajló szín. Enyhe, fűszeres illat. Édeskés, fűszeres, korianderes ízvilág. Közepesen testes, erősen szénsavas, közepesen keserű. Finom, jól összerakott sör.

Trago muy amargo y sorprendentemente fácil de beber para tratarse de una cerveza con 8% de alcohol. Complejidad frutal para acompañar la amargura, muy agradable.

Golden, quite hazy. Aroma spicy, yeasty. Taste has some citrus, spice and a bit more bitterness at the end to be a triple. Quite dry.

A Quality triple no doubt. But is reputed to be the most bitter of the triples. And I believe it though it is not overly crazy hopped. I did not find the taste worth the calories ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

AcctError484021 (66) - - SEP 3, 2017
UPDATED: SEP 3, 2017 Bière blonde très claire avec un voile de mousse, de la levure en suspension. Un nez peu présent. Carbonation moyenne, bière assez claire en bouche, pas trop de goût, c'est une bière à boire sûrement à température ambiante pour ressentir toutes les saveurs.
