Shark_Pants (764) - AUSTRALIA - OCT 18, 2017
330ml bottle BB 02 Mar 2020. Deep clear sunset orange with big rocky white head. Aroma has a big whack of brett horse blanket, along with some banana, pear and white pepper. The taste is reflective of the aroma, along with a nice honey malt sweetness, alcohol reasonably well hidden. Medium bodied, spritzy carbonation enhances the pepperiness nicely. A very nice twist to a pretty good tripel.

Nice looking brass colour. Reasonably large head. Aroma is toffee and soil. Taste is some yeast and soggy oatmeal. Weird aftertaste.

stupre (492) - Nanterre, FRANCE - SEP 24, 2017
33cl bottle purchased @ La caisse de bières. Robe dorée avec belle mousse persistante. Attaque sur la pomme acidulée. Fraîcheur apportée par la pointe d'acidité. Petit goût de cidre assez aigre.

UPDATED: SEP 11, 2017 Botella 33 cl en supermercado Brugge 11..09..2017. (r467). Lote 12.28 fdcpref 16..02..2022. Color amarillento oscuro turbio con espuma blanca persistente. Sabores maltosos dulces suaves algo secos, al inicio típicos de las triples belgas seguido de ligeros amargos secos herbáceos verdes con suaves toques ácidos a agrios suaves. Original combinación de triple belga con levaduras salvajes. Se podría repetir. Original.

Eastwood (488) - Oviedo, SPAIN - SEP 11, 2017
Tomada con Angel77 y Octavio. En Brujas. O esta contaminada o es muy acida para una triple. Decepcion. Me parece mala.

Fules (1342) - Gyöngyös, HUNGARY - SEP 11, 2017
2017-es évjárat. Sötétborostyán szín, nagy, tartós hab. Fűszeres, tipikus tripeles illat. Fűszeres, tripeles és vadélesztős, animális ízjegyek kiegyensúlyozott keveréke, jó összhanggal. Közepesen testes, közepesen, pezsgősen szénsavas, közepesen keserű. Finom sör

The_Osprey (8717) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 30, 2017
August 2017 - 330ml bottle at home as 'De Halve Maan Straffe Hendrik Wild', 9%, 2015 vintage, BB date suggests this is 29 months old. Pours a dark reddy shade of amber, translucent and hazy, sparkling with a huge dense creamy head that leaves thick lacing. Aroma is huge caramel, candi sugar, brioche and iced bun. Body is light and frothy with spritzy carbonation. Taste has more toffee and caramel sweetness, again iced buns, fizz cuts through it all and there is a metallic bretty note with some champagne, mint and booze to finish. Works really well. It's sort of like a sweetened and more alcoholic Orval. I like it. (8-4-7-3-16=3.8)

Listigovers (1278) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 27, 2017
2016 bottle. Pours an orange colour, opaque. Smells a bit peachy, floral, some barnyard yeast. Sweetness like a liqueur up front, a lot of tripel flavour, big bomb of a beer. Boozy palate with a lot of alcohol, a bit of heat but not too harsh. Super yeasty and a very bitter and hoppy aftertaste. A very large and intense beer, certainly wild.

nathanvc (647) - Brugge, BELGIUM - AUG 25, 2017
At De Republiek, Bruges. Pours hazy amber with small, foamy, off-white head. Inviting smell. The aroma contains yeast, barnyard, hops, herbs, orange and spices. It tastes medium sour and medium herbal bitter with a dry, yeasty finish. Medium body, slick texture, lively carbonation. The rather harsh palate restrains the enjoyment of the flavours, yet I found it interesting. Would try again.

AtronSeige (1696) - Johannesburg, SOUTH AFRICA - AUG 16, 2017
GUSHER!! Aroma: Pig sty, faecal, wet hay. Appearance: Slightly hazy, burnt gold body. Large head with big bubbles and low retention. Flavour: Medium farm yard, grainy, spicy. Medium-light pigsty, lemon, hay, acidity. Ligh fruity, apricot. Dry finish with lingering lemon Mouthfeel: Light body with medium-high carbonation and a light warming. Overall: The flavours are generally ok, but the pigsty/faecal is very off-putting. Gushing over the table is also never liked. Bottle, poured. Thanks Rob (but not in a bad way)
