Kleurplaatje (185) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - APR 18, 2017
Pours hazy amber with a thick foamy off-white head... Yeasty and floral aroma. Malty, spicy nose.. Okay. Taste is sweetish. Definitely caramel, some orange, spices, and yeast. Faint touch of cloves and apricot somehow... Impressive nonetheless. Thick texture, full bodied, acceptable, yet livable carbo. Impressive tripel.

Cristobal37 (1091) - Budapest, HUNGARY - APR 17, 2017
UPDATED: APR 17, 2017 Pale lots of carbonation big head. Surprised how similar the aroma is compared to the "Wild" brett version. Still very fruity, strawberries? Strong mineral water taste, a little boozy, honeycomb cereal, slight bitterness at the end. Good but defo not the best. The brett version was much more complex and flavorful.

Middle of the road Tripel, niks fout, niks speciaal en daarom niet geslaagd. Beetje rijpe en gedroogde vruchten (abrikoos) in de smaak zijn het enige lichtpuntje.

Kwaliteitsbier van brouwerij de Halve Maan. Zoet aroma met fruitige smaak. Tripel is 9 procent, maar lijkt lichter. Prima schuimkraag!

UPDATED: MAR 12, 2017 A great one for sure... This is a beer I?d recommend to anyone not familiar with good drinks. Every positive aspects of the best Belgian beers are represented here. Strong abv, spicy aroma and a much pleasant aftertaste that last for long in mouth. Plus, a very classy, nice design. Perhaps a bit difficult to get used to it at first, this one is (strangely) not as smooth as the Quadrupel one, alcohol taste is much more present, but that?s part of its greatness. Far from the quadrupel one which is beyond awesome, but still perfect to go along with any good meal! APPROVED BY TAVERNY?S BLACK METAL CREW!

UPDATED: MAR 1, 2017 Spicy tripel. Banana, coriander, spices, lemon zest, hint of honey, subtle hint of cinnamon. Nice carbonisation. Heavy one.

Pours dark hazy amber with thick, lasting beige head. Nose is floral yeasty esters, malts, orange peel, biscuits and caramel. Taste is sweet caramel malts, coriander, orange and alcohol. Full bodied, average carbonation levels, creamy mouthfeel. Great tripel.

Tap at the brewery with samalito, commonshawn, rosskyle, and dubtully. Beautiful Straffe Hendrik glass. Golden copper color with an impressive and impactful amount of white head. Aroma is spicy with elements of Belgian yeast funk. Taste has sweet characteristics melding well with spicy notes of coriander and hops. Malty backbone serves the beer well giving it a well rounded mouthfeel and finish. An almost white wine quality is coming through. Overall one of the better renditions of this style Ive tried. Commonshawn is ridiculously excited about this one.

At de halve man brewery in bruges with commonmac, samuelito, willyp, and rosskyle. Light copper with thick white head. Beautiful clean yeast nose. Body is full and slightly spicy. Taste is perfect for the style. One of the best tripels ever.
