En let l p trods af den hje procent, den er meget vins og har en god smag af noget frugtagtigt. Ikke s tung som mange andre triple, og den er kun let humlet. En rigtig god l!

33cl bottle at home. Clear golden with a medium white soapy head with long retention. Medium body with moderate carbonation. Nice sweet and bitter tones. Fruits, yeast, herbs, citrus and hay. A nice tripel. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

The tripel in the Tongerlo series, replaced by the Prior in 2009, apparently. This rating is based on tasting notes dating back twelve years and it seems I wont get the chance for a re-rating. Not that this bothers me at all: I did not like this tripel anyway, it showed that same dull and boring malt sweetness as the Blond, but in order to obtain a higher ABV, more sugar had been added, making it more sweet even, but no substantial hop bitterness for balance. Finish was thin, metallic and alcoholic. Bland and definitely one of the lesser Belgian tripels I had.

330ml bottle from Vanuxeem. Pours hazy copper. Aroma is sweet vanilla. Taste follows with luscious tripel flavours veering on the sweet side. Has a fair carbonation but doesnt distract too much from the taste. Very nice.

Just another Belgian tripel. Tasty and quite enjoyable, but also very average.

On tap. Pours golden with white head. Fruity and herbal aroma and taste. Actually a rather nice one.

Almost clear deep orange appearance with strong head. Fruity and yeasty aroma, medium sweetness, medium body. Missing perfect balance but overall decent Tripel style beer..

Erzengel (8176) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - DEC 5, 2013
UPDATED: DEC 22, 2013 Sehr hell-trb im Glas. Der Schaum ist ziemlich bestndig. Geruch ist voll-fruchtig-slich. Ananas. Antrunk vollmundig-frisch-slich. Voller Charakter. Der Hauptteil wird etwas alkoholisch-scharf, aber schn fruchtig-weibrotig. Auf der Zunge bleibt eine fruchtig-frische, aber auch slich-scharfe Note zurck.
Sehr interessantes Bier, aber fr meinen Geschmack zu alkoholisch-schatf!
Test vom 11.7.2008, Gebinde: Glasflasche Noten: 12,10,9,9,12,9 - 9,60
