FlacoAlto's rating

   AROMA 5/10   APPEARANCE 4/5   TASTE 5/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 10/20
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 doesnt help too much.

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

The_Osprey (7631) - 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.

Achel (485) - 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 (94) - 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

A great triple in my books, low bitterness as I expect, and good body while maintaing a very light colour. Delirium Cafe Brussels

Ernest (7556) - 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 isnt skilled with this style yet? Not terrible, but not recommended.

Bottle from Kisjes Slijterijen, Meppel. Aroma is malt, ripe fruits, ripe apricot, sugary notes, mildly spicy yeast, perfumed notes, alcohol. Flavour is sweet and sugary with a little bitterness in the slightly boozy finish. Body is medium. Sugary and boozy, very disappointing coming from Oud Beersel.

opalescent darker golden to orange colour, huge, dense, slightly yellowish off-white head; aroma of floral honey, apricot, marmalade notes, hints of earth and grains; taste is similar to the aroma with candy sugar; good tripel; nothing extraordinary, but quite enjoyable
