Bosskie (838) - NETHERLANDS - AUG 4, 2007
UPDATED: FEB 4, 2010 8.5% 33cl bottle bought in Belgium. Weak, snowy head witha beautiful golden colour with bubble columns. Clear; looks almost like a pils. Refreshing smell with orange, citrics and subtle peach and strawberry. Bitter-sour taste with very little sweet. Dry finish. The palate is grainy-watery with a bitter-sour taste which flows into the aftertaste without much change.... hints of banana. Metallic background.

Bottle. Golden beer with a very strong head. The aroma is lightly spiced and vinous and the flavour is quite bitter and yeasty spiced. Overall a reasonable beer.

Maria (10213) - Thisted, DENMARK - APR 1, 2007
Golden with a lot of sediments and a huge head. The carbonation is rather high. The aroma has notes of fruit, sweetness, flower and alcohol. The flavour is lightly sweet and spicy with notes of fruit and flower, and it has a nice citrussy finish. A nice trippel, but I would like the alcohol less dominant.

Cloudy golden colored pour with a medium sized head. Spicy, hoppy aroma with a nice bitter sweet hoppy finish. Not bad at all.

(Bottle) Pours hazy amber with green and grey hints. Medium sweet, light sugary aroma with notes of spices and fruits mostly apricots and pears. Hints of hops. Light caramelly. Subtle citric notes both in the aroma and in the flavour. Maybe some almond paste. Medium sweet, a bit sugary but refreshing flavour with notes of fruits. Light sourish ending. Medium body.

iep (230) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - JAN 26, 2007
Very clear & transparant for a tripel. Good head, good lacing. Pleasant malty aroma. Outstanding taste, very full-bodied and balanced. Slightly metallic finish. The mouthfeel is lush and thick, with low carbonation. Very nice.

Glouglouburp (6103) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 3, 2006
Clear Blonde body with small white head that quickly goes away. Taste and aroma is mainly honey and cereals with some faint spices. Typical pale malt blonde tripel body. Short finish. Soft carbonation. Not bad but slightly below average tripel. Compared to their delicious dubbel, this Postel felt as cheap as a hostel.
