2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
This beer is not my sort of style. I will not get it again but it is not tip it out either.
(Brewed 20.05.2015, batch #1428/1436A)
Deep gold, with a small, white, lasting head.
Nose: Nice yeasty notes, lots of dried yellow hay and modest but noticeable notes of peat (pure peat, no smoke), plus (what appears like bretty notes of) sweet recently beeswaxed leather.
Taste: The arrival is slightly sweet and fruity. Here there is more of the peat, which is almost sweat and mixes with those beeswaxed leather notes. The mid palate is soft, fruity, with a hint of sweetness balanced by rounded hops bitterness. “Deep” taste. The exit is slightly drier, with a little hops bitterness rounding off the aforementioned elements. The aftertaste is quite long.
Lovely, almost 3 year old, lightly peated trippel! Has benefited from bottle ageing (and my rating reflects this). luclamainfroide (3) - - JAN 12, 2018 does not count
UPDATED: JAN 12, 2018 déroutant ! Je m'attendais à une banale triple, mais avec son côté malt fumé j'ai été agréablement surpris ! Je conseille pour le dépaysement Calisky (3150) - ALSACE, FRANCE - JAN 1, 2018
Jaune trouble, légère mousse. Nez vieux fruits, levure, un peu mandarine. Gout vieux fruits jaunes confits (un peu coing et miel) note paille et fumée!. Bon corps. Fin amere sur le fruité levures. JDsz5 (55) - - DEC 27, 2017

UPDATED: DEC 25, 2017 Bottle 50cl, a clear golden beer with good head and retention, Nose is floral and Belgian yeast. Taste is bitter, medium sweet to high, aroma is on quince, belgian yeast, saison touch, yellow fruits, bit heavy. rumore (865) - Rimini, ITALY - DEC 3, 2017
50cl bottle from AbeerVinum, Rimini, Italy. Pours hazy gold with limited white foam, very fine. Aroma is spiced, orange peel and fruity. Body is slightly dense with moderate carbonation. Taste is fairly high in sweetness, but balanced with its spiced feeling. Finish is relatively long and sweet. sinte (604) - Udine, ITALY - NOV 12, 2017
Slightly hazy, deep golden to amber body with a small, frothy, white head, mostly lasting with some lacing.
Moderate malty (caramel) and light yeasty aroma with note of fruits (peach, maybe) and spices.
Moderate sweet and light-to-moderate bitter flavour with light sourness; long sweet and slightly acidic finish.
Medium body with oily texture; soft carbonation. Blastomorpha (150) - - OCT 31, 2017
Pours like a typical belgian tripel, amber with a white head.
Subtle smoky and hoppy notes are mixed in a light malty aroma. The smokiness becomes more and more evident as the beer warms.
Taste is quite sweet but rounded by a nice tart and bitter finish. Spicy too.
Medium bodied and not very fizzy, very pleasant to sip. Alcohol very well hidden.
Nice experiment, a complex beer definitely, but very well balanced. artemb (1292) - Chisinau, MOLDOVA - OCT 18, 2017
Cloudy golden, opaque, white head with average retention.
Aroma: bananas, black pepper, some smoky notes.
Taste: sweet with spicy bitterness.
Flavour: ripe apricotes, some sweet alcohol notes, spicy phenols.
Boozy and spicy warming finish.
This is definitely not a classical tripel, but a decent Belgian-style strong ale.
