July 2017 - Can share at Mr Tipple 5K, Canary Wharf. Many thanks to Fergus. As 'Northern Monk / Cigar City The Trilogy MMXVI: Yeast', 9%. Pale orange, translucent, foamy off-white head leaves full lacing. Aroma is airy, foam banana sweets, pastels and bonbons, lemon sweets. Candyfloss and those banana chew sweets from pic n mix. Body is light, tingly to spritzy carbonation, frothy. Taste is spicy, more banana and clove, white pepper. Spicy, spicy and spicy in the finish. And dry. Not my favourite style but this one is quite nice. (7-4-7-3-15=3.6) rodbod (400) - Motherwell, SCOTLAND - SEP 5, 2017
Can from The Good Spirits Co Wine & Beer. Hazy gold with a huge white froth. Nose is full-on Belgian yeast, traditional (metallic) hops aromas. Taste is sweet candy sugar, spicy yeast, barley sugar. Palate is creamy, perhaps a little over carbed, but I like it anyway. A cracking Tripel, despite not being Belgian. mR_fr0g (12957) - Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - JUL 30, 2017

Can shared in London - thanks to Mr. Frog. Pours clear yellow-gold with a foamy, pure white head. Some nice Belgian yeast in the nose, grapefruit, lemon, dried wheat. Medium sweet flavour with just a little woody dryness, rich wheat bread, white sugar, tangerine, hay. Medium to full bodied with lively, massaging carbonation. Lightly warming finish with some bitter pale grains, straw, phenols, alcohol, pithy lemon. Very decent tripel. BeardedAvenger (969) - Addlestone, Surrey, ENGLAND - MAY 1, 2017
Can from Utobeer, Borough Market. Did I really pay £7.30 for this 330ml can, that’s what the price sticker says. Vague yeasty aroma. A bright and hazy Amber. Big fluffy white head. Gradually gains bitterness, through to a medium strength. Hops kick in and there’s a spiciness in the finish. Light bodied. Watery. Fizzy carbonation. Dry, slightly astringent finish. Leaves an enjoyable alcohol warmth in the the throat. Good stuff but not overly exciting. The ABV is not obvious. Not worth £7.30!

Draft @ Brouwcafé de Molen. Pours a clear golden beer with a nicely sized, bright white head consisting out of a mix of small and big bubbles. Aroma of bready Belgian yeast, raisins, caramelized malts and a hint of white fruits. Flavor is sweet and has a faint note of alcohol, bread, toasted malts. In both flavor and aroma a typical, textbook tripel done right. Decent one. Theydon_Bois (20225) - Hazlemere, the lower Xhitlerns, Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - FEB 28, 2017
Keg at St Andrews Brewhouse, Norwich, 16/02/17.
Very lightly hazed golden blonde with a decent off white head.
Nose is citric rinds, caramel, toffee apple, light spice, yeast snap, soft bread.
Taste comprises caramel, sweet licks, mellow yeast esters, candied fruit peel, white peppery spice, soft bread dough.
Full bodied, fine carbonation, warming alcohol in the close.
Solid for style ... good boost level pulled off without getting too sweet or cloying ... the balanced spice levels meld this one together well.

Can at home. Pours golden, nose is yeasty, spiced, light fruit, taste is similar, juicy, doing this some injustice but I just don’t really get tripels. Cunningham (8189) - Halden, NORWAY - FEB 14, 2017
Golden color with a fine frothy white head that last. Good intensity in the aroma. Medium (+) body and a fine carbonation level. Ok balance between sweetness and acidity. Fruity, yeast and some spices in the flavor.jamestulloch (4217) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JAN 16, 2017

Keg at Andrew Usher’s. Clear golden body with a lasting white head. Steady carbonation. Good lacing. Aroma of hay, bread and a hint of menthol. Flavour of banana, earthy hops, pithy lemon, salted tiger bread and a suggestion of lime chutney. Full body with a chewy texture. Soft fizz. An excellent beer, which revealed more with every sip. For me, this is easily the best of the Malt/Hops/Yeast series.
