VoodooBear (49) - San Juan, - FEB 28, 2014
Presentation: 330mL brown bottle, served in an 5 Rabbit Cervecería tulip. Appearance: Deep, cloudy, dark yellow color. It develops a thick, two finger white head and leaves lots of lacing that sticks to the whole glass and slowly slides away. Smell: It has a burning fruity alcohol scent. Taste: The malt sweetness is dominant. There are some herbal, spicy notes in the background and a good alcohol kick at the end that reminds you this is packing an 8% ABV. Mouthfeel: There’s a fair amount of carbonation. It feels creamy and smooth on the palate, even a bit refreshing. Overall: A very interesting beer all the way through. Despite the high ABV it remains mellow and balanced, which makes for a very good experience. No wonder this is one of the best rated Tripels out there.

Fles thuis geprobeerd. Het is een donker geel bier met een dunne schuimkraag. Het heeft een wat zoete smaak met een zuurtje op de achtergrond.

Bitek (751) - Warszawa, POLAND - SEP 14, 2017
Przyprawy, owoce, wśród których na pierwszy plan wysuwają się winogrona i brzoskwinie, troszkę biszkoptowej słodowości. Dość wytrawne. Treściwość średnia. Bardzo wysokie, musujące wysycenie, średnia goryczka. Świetnie ukryty alkohol.

PhillyCraft (7582) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 7, 2017
Backlog, Bottle. Pours a cloudy golden color with medium off white head. Active Carbonation. Smell and flavor of apples, pear, plum, spice, pepper, toast, and grain. Malty and warming in the finish like most Belgians. Medium bodied.

floydslip (412) - Washington DC, USA - SEP 4, 2017
Cloudy light gold beer with a thick frothy bright white head. Nose of lemongrass, white vinegar, and candied orange peel. Flavor is crisp and spritzy with lemon curd, mild rice wine vinegar, and cardamon finished with a pleasant bitterness. With bracing carbonation, this is a light-bodied tripel with many layers of flavor. Excellent.

PlutonowyMan (824) - Baardegem, BELGIUM - AUG 24, 2017
Barwa miedziana, pozbawiona zamglenia, pełna za to drożdżowych drobinek. Piana niska i nietrwała, barwy ecru. W aromacie mamy skórkę od chleba, ciemne owoce, orzechy i nieco słodkich brzoskwiń. Smak jest nieco wytrawny a nawet delikatnie kwaskowy. Ponownie mamy chlebowość z przypaloną skórką od chleba, orzechy i tym razem nieco białych owoców (winogron). Finisz delikatnie goryczkowy. Wysycenie jak to u belgów wysokie, choć o dziwo tutaj mi nie przeszkadza. Alkohol idealnie schowany. Piwo charakteryzuje spora pełnia i gładkość.

Een echte tripel, beetje bitter maar blijft niet heel lang hangen, niet onderscheidend, vind de 8 en 12 lekkerder. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

GvanGool (113) - NETHERLANDS - AUG 14, 2017
Nice hazy light amber coloured. Robust head that stays pretty long. The smell is citric. Taste is complex. Citric, nice bitterness, little sweetness but not exaggerated. Complex, but in balance. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

rodsquad (288) - Aberdeen, SCOTLAND - AUG 9, 2017
Bottle from Fountainhall Wines. Pours clear amber with fluffy white head and lots of bubbles in the glass. Very nice. The nose has lots of spice then a syrupy sweet candy before a smooth toffee softens and calms things down. The flavours are big with toffee then a clear hay-like dry spice takes over before a mild floral earth finish. It’s full bodied with a lively sharp sparkle which ticks all my boxes when it comes to the Tripel. This is a properly spicy tripel. Loads of smooth toffee sweetness provides the required balance. Very nice.

Bootlegger007 (243) - AUSTRALIA - AUG 6, 2017
Light floral aroma, citrus, earthy grains and toffee, pours a murky orange with light particles and has a large white creamy head, flavours of sweet malts and sour citrus fruits, cask wood characteristics with a light spice, a hearty meal on a cold night, warms from the toes.
