KombatAle (129) - New Brunswick, - MAY 19, 2013
Pours a dark golden with a heavy, white one finger head. Yeasty nose, nice carbonation, light fruity notes and not too sweet. Didn’t notice much of an alcohol burn. Excellent version of the style.

VueltaBirrista (53) - Murcia, SPAIN - DEC 3, 2016
Una Tripel clásica belga con una buena capa de espuma blanca y con mucha burbuja. Aromas muy claros a especias y naranja. En boca se muestra muy maltosa (6 tipos de malta tienen la culpa). El contrapunto lo ponen el Styrian Golding y el Saaz. Entra dulce y suave, caramelo, frutas (si en su aroma se aprecian cítricos, en boca tiende más a frutos dulces) maltas tostadas… y poco a poco se va tornando un tanto ácida debido a las notas de levadura.

BlackHaddock (6546) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - DEC 2, 2016
On tap in ’Beers Yesterdays World’ a bar within an antique shop (Brugge) on 27th Nov 2016. Very surprised I have never rated this beer before as I am a regular visitor to Belgium and Brugge in particular and often default to this when I want a rest from ’new beers to rate’. This beer is so common I obviously thought I had written about it years ago. Anyway, I am righting this wrong now. Classic Triple in every way: copper in colour, lasting deep head and semi-sweet molasses to the fore with an alcohol bite: what’s not to like?

Kampfar (165) - Münster, GERMANY - NOV 24, 2016
From 0.33 L bottle, pours murky, medium brown coloured with a white head. Aroma grainy, light bread, slightly yeasty. Taste is medium sweet with a malty character. Very little alcoholic later on, which is fitting well. Medium long, sweet and light bitter finish. Full mouthfeel with a creamy consistence and soft carbonation. Great one, as I expect a tripel to be!

simontomlinson (32) - Blackburn, Lancashire, ENGLAND - NOV 20, 2016
Brilliant white creamy head stayed on a highly effervescent dark golden coloured body. Orange & yeast aroma. Medium bodied. Lightly fizzy on the palate, tickly on the back. Sweet citrus tastes of orange with nectarine, candy, marmalade, floral, spicy & yeasty. A fantastic beer.

Zilb (209) - Fontenay Sous Bois, FRANCE - NOV 13, 2016
Bue 1 an et 7 mois avant DLC. Bière blonde, très trouble, carbo faible. Epais col de mousse à tenue exceptionnelle. Arôme très fruité : banane notamment ET d’alcool. Epaisse en bouche, belle rondeur. L’alcool domine en final et la levure/banane également.

lkowalkowski (135) - POLAND - NOV 12, 2016
Piwo bardzo ładnie wygląda. Barwa jasno bursztynowa, gęsta biała piana. Drobno pęcherzykowata, oblepia szkło. Aromat typowy dla Triple ale bardzo wyważony. Za razem delikatny jak i intensywny. W smaku podobnie jak w aromacie, wszystko jest na swoim miejscu. Bardzo dobre piw.

kaserov (282) - Oviedo, SPAIN - NOV 4, 2016
Color entre dorado y naranja, translúcido, con capa de espuma blanca (jabonosa) de dos dedos de grosor (muy buena retención). Restos de fermentación. Carbonatación A TOPE. Aroma frutal (sobre todo plátano); me pareció que se colaba algo metálico en los primeros olfateos (pero luego se disipó). Nada de alcohol en el olor. Sabor frutal con final amargo. Tampoco hay nada de alcohol en el sabor. Buena Tripel. No destaca especialmente pero tiene nivel.

Zarrach76 (67) - Grenoble, FRANCE - OCT 27, 2016
Belle blonde vénitienne très légèrement troublée surmontée d’une grosse mousse ivoire avec d’imposantes bulles collées au verre et crémeuse au centre... Nez ultra gourmand : malts très bien torréfiés, chocolat au lait, caramel, miel, spéculoos, sucre candi, nougat, et des saveurs poivrées revigorantes propres aux houblons utilisés. Très bon équilibre avec un alcool discret. Splendide ! Première gorgée révélant l’amertume, plutôt franche mais sous contrôle, grosse carbonatation, deuxième gorgée qui distille au palet le côté floral et végétal des houblons, petit côté métallique due à la mousse résiduelle qui altère un peu les goûts, pas trop de sucre, alcool solide. Troisième gorgée avec des arômes de fruits (pomme verte, poire), de résineux (épicéa), un soupçon d’agrumes (citron). Bière qui laisse une certaine sécheresse en bouche, mais pas désagréable pour autant. La longueur est soutenue, sur les houblons, l’alcool et le malt. Ce breuvage n’est pas si complexe, mais le choix des houblons est surprenant : indécelables au nez, très présents en bouche. Très bonne triple pour qui saura apprécier son houblonnage. Bouteille 33cl, V&B Grenoble.

poisoneddwarf (2326) - Coeur d’ Alene, Idaho, USA - OCT 22, 2016
750 ml corked and caged. The price sticker on this says May of 2015, so it has a little age on it. Aroma is butterscotch, banana, meat, skunk. Pours hazy light orange with an off-white head. Taste is sweet, oxidized, finishes with a light dry bitterness. Let me have this beer fresher please. I’m sure my score will be higher.
