krisbierjaeger (844) - dolores, Colorado, USA - SEP 20, 2009
the bottle says: "with a name like slaapmutske, it has to be good". well, not so fast. aside from the plagiarism of the smuckers jam company’s long held slogan, the role of names in beer marketing success is highly variable: arrogant bastard and monte python’s holy grail are beers that reap sales owing to an eye catching name, independent of a beer drinkers experience. on the other hand, schenkerla and westvleteran are names that could choke a multi-lingual auctioneer, yet quicken the hearts of the faithful. at 12 bucks a pop for the 750, slaapmutske had better do back flips of zymurologic acrobatics like a highly caffeinated terrier dog on the ed sullivan show. admittedly a nice start: "slopmustard" breaks wind with a librarians "shush" as the fake cork became suddenly unemployed. bottle conditioned, with a nuclear winter of dark swirling debris in the bottle, once in the glass we gaze upon a beer as richly yellow as a deep cadmium pool of butter, while the head braced itself on top with the surety of a luxury liner, mainsails in white, flags of lace hanging from every line. "spankmonkey" has a simple hard candy aroma, danish butter cookies, hard little peaches picked in spring, flecks of dry hop leaves, and a bit of bees wax. bright carbonation blends vies with sweetness, bitterness and a full creamy body to command some attention. i taste ginger and grapefruit, with a touch of toothpaste lemon-grass. there persists a lingering bitterness, surprising for a tripel, and a subtlety corrupting influence of alcohol. and still those cunning spirals of lace on the glass point the way to slumber: down, so slowly down. it’s nice, but, but... i dunno. like a pretty girl that i’d stroke all night but never really risk falling in love with. maybe it’s that name: muckslobber-- or whatever.

Luneylane (179) - Taipei City, TAIWAN - JUN 14, 2017
A bottle at the Cafe Bastille, Taipower Building. Aroma: very, very yeasty. Appearance: hazy amber, massive rocky head. Palate: medium-bodied and slick, average carbonation. Long finish, bitter and complex. Taste: medium bitter, with Marmite. Very satisfying.

erikaraeb (138) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JUN 10, 2017
Tastes and smells strongly of floral honey. Bolder in taste and much less yeasty than other tripels. A touch of bitterness on the finish, but rather sweet throughout the sip, though is definitely not syrupy. Would be a perfect tripel with a bit less sweetness.

Ysok02 (1527) - Mons, BELGIUM - MAY 23, 2017
Robe blonde aux reflets dorés, mousse crémeuse persistante. Nez assez élégant sur des notes de fruits jaunes mûrs, d’infusion de tilleul et de verveine, notes d’agrumes légères, pointe de malt et de levures, belle complexité. Bouche à l’attaque assez fraîche, sèche et épicée, bulle fine, peut-être un manque d’ampleur pour une triple mais une belle longueur et une finale équilibre qui raffraîchit. Une triple de soif et d’été.

Une triple qui change des triples! Plutôt atypique dans le style et relativement houblonnée, cette slaapmutske est globalement agréable, sur des arômes orientés sur le fruit mais présente malheureusement quelques déséquilibres évidents qui lui portent réellement préjudices. En verre, notre bière est blond doré (EBC de 15), quasi limpide, avec une mousse blanche d’un centimètre et demi. Son effervescence est quant à elle moyenne. Le nez est soyeux avec des arômes de miel, de fruits (pomme, poire, pêche notamment) sur un fond de céréales. A contrario l’attaque est fraîche, aidée en cela par l’amertume du houblon ainsi qu’une petite touche d’acidité et s’oriente principalement sur les céréales. La deuxième bouche sur des arômes fruités (pomme, poire) et de biscuits est très agréable. L’arrière bouche, davantage sur l’alcool est des notes épicées, n’est cependant pas entièrement bien intégrée et modère ce plaisir. La troisième bouche se resserre sur l’amertume, avec une intensité ressentie supérieure aux classiques du genre (IBU de 31 avec dry hopping), avant un final d’une longueur juste acceptable présentant un alcool plus marqué. Ce dernier d’un titrage de 8,1 % n’est pas sur un équilibre parfait mais présente un belle progressivité. Le sucre quant à lui ne pose aucun problème, bien dosé. Une bonne bière donc, mais pas de quoi décrocher la lune!

GeorgePratt (70) - Stockport, Cheshire, ENGLAND - JAN 23, 2017
Aroma of citrus, bread and spices. Pours a cloudy amber with a small white head. Tastes of fruit, bread and earth with a warming alcohol finish. Bought this by mistake but don’t regret it. Exceptionally drinkable.

2.7
phfyysik (1253) - Tartu, ESTONIA - JAN 3, 2017
Pours amber with medium white top. Aroma is cheese, parmesan, caramel, old socks, some spices, sourish, pear, fruits. Taste is cheese, caramel, yeast, parmesan, nuts, spices, pepper, sweet, fruits, mango. Aroma irritates me and therefore can not enjoy the taste. Maybe the second attempt will be better!

dnstone (3386) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - DEC 30, 2016
Hazed golden with a bit of sudsy white head. Musty grainy sweet aroma and taste. Mild sweetness. Notes: On tap at Monks Cafe, Philly (Dec ’16)

3.6
slowrunner77 (11930) - Reno, Nevada, USA - DEC 23, 2016
Floral, fruity, herbal and bready aroma. Light drinking for 8% but in a pleasant sort of way. Flavor is as complex as the nose, perhaps more yeast and less fruit. WAY better than the Christmas Nightcap I had in a bottle years ago.

3.8
lello4ever (967) - ITALY - OCT 17, 2016
UPDATED: OCT 17, 2016 L?aspetto è molto buono, bel colore arancio torbido, la schiuma biancastra frizzantina e di buona persistenza. L?aroma è di malto, caramello, spezie, lievito, erbe. Positiva la bevuta, che è abbastanza verso il dolce, amaro abbastanza limitato con note speziate. Carbonazione vivace, corpo pieno. Niente male.
