Kavu (5255) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JAN 18, 2018
0,33l bottle from Alko, Jyväskylä. Pours cloudy golden with a high creamy head. Aroma is slightly fruity malts with plenty of belge yeast. Flavor is slightly fruity and bitter malts, alcohol, belge yeast, hops. Very creamy. Excellent body. Good stuff.

DijkBier (656) - AMSTERDAM, NETHERLANDS - JAN 14, 2018
Clear golden pour with huge near-white head. Aroma is quite faint, but taste is nice: medium sweet, fruity, syrupy. This is a typically Belgian tripel: nice and old-school, but among them not the worst.

kwik-lime (2117) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 7, 2018
Orange pour with nice head that lasts. Pale malt, brown sugar, alcohol, some citrus, a little yeast. Lovely.

Braudog (6906) - Yorktown, Virginia, USA - DEC 25, 2017
UPDATED: JAN 1, 2018 Bottle, caged and corked. Pours with enormous heft, piled high with white, rocky foam riding atop a bright, yet muddy orange substrate. The aroma is sweet and rife with herbal tastiness. Very flavorful, spicy and old school. Textbook. (#6858, 12/25/2017)

Marstonlad (976) - Helsinki, FINLAND - DEC 23, 2017
UPDATED: DEC 23, 2017 Bottle from Alko, Helsinki. Pours cloudy golden with a big frothy head, beautiful appearance. The aroma features ripe fruitiness, sweet pale maltiness and a touch of spiciness; assertive maltiness and yeastiness. Taste is medium sweet, displaying grain, caramel, pear and substantial spiciness. Warming presence of alcohol stays mostly in the sidelines. The palate is full-bodied and smooth, low in carbonation. Decent but lacks the depth that the best tripels have.

Beerberella (8) - FRANCE - DEC 22, 2017 does not count
Really nice triple with a strong personality. Very strong and rich aromas. Beautiful rich amber colour. Dynamic range of taste from sweet to strong hoppy kick at the end. Hits you with the Alcohol too. I followed this with a Tripel from La Trappe which paled in comparison.

Beer5000 (6825) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - DEC 20, 2017
Bottle. Slightly unclear golden body with a lacing, dense white head. Aroma has pale malt, fruit, yeast and spices. Flavor is sweet pale malt, white sugar, yeast, spices and some warming alcohol. Medium body and average aftertaste. A nice, rather classic Belgium tripple, no more, no less.

rozsoma (1163) - Gyõr, HUNGARY - DEC 11, 2017
UPDATED: DEC 11, 2017 Bootle, túlságosan alkoholos mély test, mely melegséggel önti el az embert.

The immediate taste is a bit too much alcohol. Otherwise a nice triple. I would prefer the original Straffe Hendrik. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
