   AROMA 5/10   APPEARANCE 4/5   TASTE 5/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 10/20
FlacoAlto (4220) - 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.

Maakun (6452) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - NOV 16, 2017
Bottle shared thanks to sjogro. Almost clear golden with big white head. Sweet malts, some alcohol, marzipan, coriander, sugar, cloves, lemon peel, milky yeast. Some more sugar and alcohol. Quite sweet but also has a spicy and yeasty bitterness. Full bodied. Not very good but it's not undrinkeable, just very sweet and alcoholic.

RudiGR (105) - Dendermonde, NETHERLANDS - NOV 1, 2017
Gekocht bij bierhandel Verhelst in Dendermonde op 10-1-2015. Bersalis Tripel is een blond en helder bier. Het schuim is wit, gelijkmatig van vorm, het komt in een grote hoeveelheid en zakt langzaam ineen. Veel pareling merkbaar. Het aroma van Bersalis Tripel is fruitig, moutig en wat zoete alcohol is ook aanwezig. De smaak is zoet-bitter en de nasmaak is ook wat bitter. De nasmaak duurt wat langer dan gewoonlijk en de nabitterheid is heel harmonisch en sterk. Bersalis Tripel geeft in de mond een licht prikkelend gevoel, is niet droog en volmondig. Een stevig biertje, gezien het alcoholgehalte. Foto's kan je zien op: beersfrombelgium.eu/nl/Bersalis_Tripel-b-776.html

Sample at OMBF 2017, Kraków. Some phenolic notes in aroma. Quite good but not exceptional.

Mesjasz (1623) - Lodz, POLAND - SEP 29, 2017
Butelka. Aromat klasyczny, dosyc drozdzowy, lekko fenolowy, nuty owocow. Niestety w smaku dosyc alkohol, ale mimo wszystko fajny tripel.

teddybeer (4120) - Madrid, SPAIN - SEP 10, 2017
Orangish color, off-white head with good duration. Aroma has sweet notes, hints of cookies and Belgian yeast. Flavor is slightly sweet, some alcoholic presence, bready notes with spices. Alcoholic final, medium sweetness and maltiness.

tonyferrari (33) - North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - JUL 23, 2017
Served on tap. Clear straw-gold colour. Thin, fluffy, medium-lasting, white foam. No aroma. The high 9,5% Abv, although not disturbing, masks a light malty flavour and a low bitterness. Medium-low body, Medium carbonation. No doubt it is not my favourite tripel.
