COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Big Nose est brassée dans le style Triple à partir de malt d’orge Pilsner, Pale Ale et Munich. Cette bière de dégustation est produite avec une quantité généreuse de houblons Nugget et Willamette. Afin d’intensifier les notes aromatiques, la bière est infusée à froid (dry-hopping) avec du houblon alsacien Triskel pendant sa maturation. Cette blonde dorée se caractérise par une structure gustative complexe dont la puissance et l’équilibre raviront vos sens. Big Nose is a Belgian Triple brewed by Emanuele Corazzini from Pilsner, Pale Ale and Munich barley malts. Nugget and Willamette hops are used in the kettle. Fermentation with a Belgian yeast strain and dry-hopping with Triskel from Alsace produce great aromatic complexity. Powerful yet delicate with a long aftertaste, this golden triple beer will make the perfect evening treat. Cheers!

Hopverdju (1115) - BELGIUM - MAY 22, 2017
Amberkleurig bier met witte wand klevende schuimkraag. Geur: licht hoppig, fruitig, wat sinaasappel, lichtjes perzik, licht kruidig, maar alles zeer subtiel. Smaak: licht zoet, licht bitter, ietwat sinaasappel. Volmondig. Goede koolzuurprikkel. Afdronk: licht zoet. Iets te zoete, plakkerige tripel voor mij.

Bottled 330ml (Beergium)
Hazy orange color, small white head. Aroma has mango, light spiceyness and strawberries. Medium-bodied. Sweet mango, white pepper, some hops in the finish. Yeast flavors. From De Ranke this is dissapointment. Way too sweet.

guzgorog (835) - FRANCE - MAR 10, 2017
Robe blonde dorée, limpide, haute mousse blanche de bonne tenue. Nez maltée, levure, miel, herbes et fleurs. L’attaque est plutôt houblonnée, herbeuse et amère, la suite est plus douce, céréales, miel, et en finale le retour du houblon avec une pointe d’agrumes. Corps complexe, bonne carbo, amertume modérée mais tenace, très bonne longueur et bouche évolutive. Belle triple avec du caractère et un houblonnage généreux assez inhabituel pour le style.

tomer (3414) - Rishon Le Zion, ISRAEL - MAR 9, 2017
At a tasting, thanks fonefun, small stable long lasting head, cloudy deepish orange color, aroma of yeast and roots with light fruits and bread behind and a waxy hint, candy bready flavor with some yeast and fruit creeping in, quite sweet but mellow. Very nice.

JoeinDahlem (1480) - Berlin, GERMANY - FEB 2, 2017
From 33cl bottle, accidentally dropped in a bit of the yeast sediment. Orange-amber color, sturdy white foam. Lovely fruity and floral nose, like fresh-squeezed orange juice, elderflower, touch of clove... none of the higher alcohols often found in tripels of this strength. Juicy and spicy taste, a bit yeasty (oops), low-medium bitterness and very nice balance between sweet and dry. Somewhat more bitter in the aftertaste, with a bit more spice-phenol coming through now. Bitterness builds. Lingering zesty impression. Really an intriguing beer, a bit dangerous to drink, and I’m happy to see another tripel that doesn’t cloy, embracing hops without becoming something else entirely.
