De Smedt ne peut pas dshabiller Pierre pour habiller Jean. On a toujours dit que deux noms de bires dabbaye chez le mme brasseur, cest trop. Donc comme Affligem est superbe en tant que triple, De Smedt ne peut mettre la Postel au mme niveau. Nous posons ainsi lexplication la plus logique au niveau de cette bire, en posant galement que les recettes dpoque ne sont plus disponibles ou exploitables. Bref, bel embalage de celle-ci, mais nous verrons la suite. Couleur dore fonc brillant. Clart comportant un lger voile, car la levure a tendance se mlanger au versage. Bulles moyennes bien vivantes. Mousse beige qui nappe en surface, crmeuse. Odeurs de miel, pomme, houblon, levure, sureau, pointe de genivre. Volume soyeux. Trs belle prise de bouche quasi quilibre la base. Texture pleine. 2me bouche avec un peu damertume, mais de belle composition et arrire-bouche ok. 3me bouche revient sur le sureau. Cet accent est un peu curieux, mme si en arrire-bouche on revient un certain quilibre. La longueur est constante, mais pas flamboyante. La levure est souple, amre mais bien adapte au sujet. Lalcool est bien sous tous rapports (9 % abv). La finale est comme la longueur, comme si elle tait retenue. Nous avons donc une bire en tous points sur le niveau de lAffligem, mais toujours un cran en dessous, et mme deux, pour tre sr de ne pas se tromper... Est-ce un mystre? Pas divin, pour le moins.

tgrtnr (64) - Augsburg, GERMANY - JAN 12, 2017
UPDATED: JAN 13, 2017 Sweet Tripel beer. Bitterness is low. Aftertaste ist not intense. Alkohol is dominant. Carbonization is rather high. Not my favourite Tripel, but not bad. 330 ml bottle from Colruyt in Antwerp.

Silvan7 (1205) - Samarate, ITALY - JUN 22, 2016
Bottle @home. Dorato carico celato, schiuma bianca fine e poco persistente. Aroma molto intenso non troppo complesso ma fine.lievito belga e zucchero candito. Speziato, pastafrolla e zenzero, burro, alcool, fruttato di uva. Gusto dolce amabile, fruttato di pesca sciroppata, poco amaro. Speziato pungente. Molto corposa, piena , decisamente rotonda, calda (non troppo ben nascosto), carbonatazione fine, debole. Non del tutto equilibrata ma perfettamente armonica

Hamirubi (578) - Waarschoot, BELGIUM - JUN 10, 2016
33cl bottle at home (10 VI 2016). Dark golden, clear tripel with huge, snow white head. Classic flavours with some black spices, banana leaves, herbs, malts and yeasts. The carbonation is pretty high, the mouthfeel is rich and sugarish. The big body is alcohol warming, with lots of sweets and bitter notes. A that spiced and with a round, even soft mouth. The ending is long, bitter, sweet and spiritful! The alcohol certainly is omnipresent, overpowered even, but I couldnt care less in a tripel. This is a classic, straigtforward and a quite heavy Belgian blonde. Decent and tasteful.
