saxo (19531) - Højbjerg, Aarhus, DENMARK - APR 25, 2017
Tap @ Mikkeller, Aarhus. Nice head with good duration. Color is golden. Aroma and taste are fruits, grass, yeast, malt and hops. Nice fruity finish.

Zilverenmaan (306) - Antwerp, BELGIUM - APR 18, 2017
Aroma: bubblegum/banana but some hints of apple fruityness and even some sourness too. Taste bubblegum and again apple and a gentle sourness. Mouthfeel astringent. Rather soft for a tripel. Alcohol not overpowering but it is definately there ( as the cognitive parts of my brain have noticed ). Not the worst tripel but it lacks complexity.

SylvainCFC (359) - Brussels, BELGIUM - APR 5, 2017
Robe blonde orange parfaitement limpide, mousse blanche abondante, aérée, grosses bulles, tenue moyenne. Nez épicé sur le coriandre, le citron, le blé. Arôme de blanche. Avec forte présence alcooleuse. Bouche d’emblée dominée par l’alcool, avec des notes épicées (coriandre, citron) et de blé. Légère douceur maltée et finale moyennement amère. Triple outrageusement dominée par l’alcool. On percevait pourtant un potentiel intéressant pour une triple épicée et levurée à la belge. Monte beaucoup trop à la tête et t’envoie au sud.

The_Osprey (9343) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 26, 2017
March 2017 - 330ml gold foil topped bottle at home in Richmond, as ’Oud Beersel Bersalis Tripel’, 9.5%, BB Jun 2019. Pours totally clear amber, mega sparkling, with an enormous foamy ever-expanding white head. I find it hard to believe that this amount of liquid can hold all this carbon dioxide. Aroma is candi sugar and toffee, custard cream biscuits, caramel wafer. Body is frothy with tingly carbonation. Taste is sugary, dusty white pepper, some powdered mint and booze offsetting toffee malts. Warms the gullet. Breathy honey-booze linger. Traditional Belgian sweetness and booze. Gets a bit tiring.

Bottle. Gold in colour. Very spicy. Sweet malt, caramel, fruit. Yeasty. Alcohol very evident. Some bitterness throughout. Dry spicy finish. Alcohol dominates taste.

TrefwoordPunk (1308) - Leiden, NETHERLANDS - FEB 9, 2017
Bottle 33 cl. Pours a clear golden with a small to medium white head and an aroma of mandarin, sweet malts, ripe fruits, spices, yeast, citrus hops, white bread, alcohol, basement aroma and candy. The taste is medium to heavy sweet with a soft carbonation and a slight bitter finish with some minimal acidity.

Achel (487) - Ioannina, GREECE - FEB 2, 2017
Poured clear amber color with an average frothy white head that lasted with good lacing. Complex citrus and yeast aroma. Medium body with a dry smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium citrus sweet flavor with a medium sweet finish of moderate duration. This is a average beer for style.

CyborgX (127) - THAILAND - JAN 28, 2017
Bottle - Funky aroma, like rotting vegetables. Taste get a little better but still weird and finky, some old pink bubblegum. Not recomended ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

bdleedahl (600) - , Saskatchewan, CANADA - JAN 20, 2017
A great triple in my books, low bitterness as I expect, and good body while maintaing a very light colour. Delirium Cafe Brussels

Ernest (7861) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JAN 19, 2017
Bottle. Head is initially average sized, frothy, white, mostly lasting. Body is dark yellow to light amber. Aroma is lightly to moderately malty (grain), trace hops (herbs), lightly to moderately yeasty (basement), with notes of alcohol (acetone), concrete. Flavor is heavily sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly to moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly to moderately bitter. Medium to full body, creamy/velvety texture, lively carbonation, moderately to heavily alcoholic.

According to the label, this is now brewed/bottled in Beersel, so I wonder if Huyghe is involved anymore. I have to admit, it smells pretty industrial and rough, so it still seems like Huyghe mediocrity to me. Or maybe Oud Beersel just isn’t skilled with this style yet? Not terrible, but not recommended.
