fiulijn (19824) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 8, 2003
Hazy golden color, huge head, rocky; impressive, chaotic perlage. Besides the obvious aroma for a Tripel, this wonderful beer has a very nice hop note. A very good body, with good malt, and maybe a too high residual sweetness (would prefer if hoppier at the end). A very good one!.

De Postel tripel is ook n van mijn teer beminde tripels. Verkrijgbaar in sixpack in de meeste colruyt vestigingen. Het aroma is eerder hoppig met een ondertoon van noten of haver. Het uiterlijk is goud blind met een volle schuimkraag. De smaak is zacht bitter met een ongeraffineerde nasmaak die mij doet denken aan haver, donkere candij en caramel. Ook een vleugje citrus in de nasmaak. Het mondgevoel is licht sprankelend op de tong en krachtig bruisend in de keel. Voor mij is dit een absoluut top bier dat ik maar al te graag aan vrienden zal serveren in en brede waaier aan gelegenheden.

Very suprising! I though it was a commercial sub-trademark of the brewery. But ... it was great (not fantastic)! Has a hop and mandarine aroma. Amber coloured with a beautiful head. Its soft, sweet, fruity and some alcohol flavor. The flavors dissapear very quickly sadly enough, but leave a burning alcohol sensation behind.

OlJuntan64 (1265) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - JUN 23, 2002
Clear yellow-amber with medium size short lasting creamy head. Delicate brief fruity peach, followed by some caramel malt, and fainter yeast and citrus sour aromas. Medium body with a fair bit of action on the tongue and mouth - somewhat Duvel like. A reasonably complex set of flavours, short fruity sweet start, malty and bitter hops middle and bitter finish fading to sweeter aftertaste. I found it quite light and alcohol supressed for an 8.5% tripel. Nice fragrant floral burps too.

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.

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.

Full bodied, great appearance, cloudy golden coulour. Lasting head. Strong spicy aroma. taste is average; just like caesar said. smooth palate, bit alcoholic perhaps.
