FlacoAlto's rating

FlacoAlto (4176) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - JUN 15, 2013
A steady pour into my teku glass produces a fat-three-finger thick, pale, off-white colored head. The beer is a bright, pale amber color that shows a brilliantly clear, gold / copper hue when held up to the light. The aroma smells of sweet grain, a touch of cotton candy, vanilla scented golden raisins, sweet melon notes, and just a candied pale malt character, which means the overall effect of the nose is on the sweet and cloying side of the spectrum. This has notes of sweet corn, DMS, and just too much graininess in general here in the nose.

Definitely sweet, with a grainy, sort of corn like sweetness that lingers on the palate for way too long. Light spicy notes provide an earthiness, some definite clove flavors, a bubble gum like flavor, and a dirty coriander water note. Very little balancing hop bitterness or flavors, in fact hop notes are not really noticeable at all here. The body has a medium fullness to it, there is quite a bit of carbonation, but for whatever reason this doesn’t help too much.

This is not so different from many a Belgian ale, but it is also the type that I really don’t enjoy; sweet, unbalanced, seemingly unrefined (to my tastes), and just cloying.

Turtles (2575) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - JUN 13, 2017
Bottled @ Belgobaren, Stockholm. Hazy dark golden. Two finger, firm white head, good lacing. Malty and fruity aroma, yeasty notes, tangerine, apricots, hay, herbs and gentle notes of booze. Full bodied, chewy smooth mouthfeel, fairly soft carbonation. Fruity taste, some alcohol burn, sweet orange and apricot, bitter citrus, bubblegum and herbal. Warming and bitter finish. Nice sipper!

MartyW (275) - DENMARK - MAY 26, 2017
Bottle at delirium. Bersalis triple III. Fruity, malt, Light yeast, wheat. Taste is the same with added banana and bubble gum flavour. Moderate sweet.

chap95 (248) - - MAY 11, 2017
Piana bardzo obfita, ale szybko opada. W aromacie słodowe, zbożowe, owocowe - jakieś pomarańcze, morele, do tego trochę gumy do żucia. W smaku generalnie powtórka, z tym że dochodzi lekka goryczka, częściowo też alkohol ale nie wybija się za bardzo. Szału nie ma.

Ferris (15013) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 6, 2017
Draft - Fruity, sweet and bready notes with a touch of perfume. Clear gold with a rich white head. Bready, boozy and some perfume.

melush (3964) - SPAIN - MAY 2, 2017
33cl Bottle @ LaBIRRAtorium, Madrid, Spain. Hazy golden colour with white head. Aroma is malt, apricot, honey, alcohol, slightly yeasty. Taste is malt, sweet, apricot, alcohol, spices. Medium body, moderate carbonation.

saxo (18208) - 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 (174) - 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 (233) - 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 (7883) - 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.

john44 (3071) - SW London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 13, 2017
Bottle. Gold in colour. Very spicy. Sweet malt, caramel, fruit. Yeasty. Alcohol very evident. Some bitterness throughout. Dry spicy finish. Alcohol dominates taste. (2008)
