2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottled. Small sample. Old note. The aroma has spicey yeast, not much hop. Bit hazy, yellow coloured beer with a white head. The taste is light bitter and dry. Again homeopathic hop use. Tripel homeopathic hop use is still nothing.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
The second Tournée Générale beer, for the second series of this television show, in 2011. Connects with the new ’tripel hop’ trend in Belgian beer culture and uses three different hops for main, late and dry hopping. Sticky, irregular, off-white head, deep peach blonde colour, hazy. Aroma of apricot, bread, banana, orange peel, grass, ’speculoos’, cloves, vanilla. Apple and orange dominate the onset, refreshing, somewhat oily mouthfeel, honeyish sweetness accompanying the whole palate from onset to finish, mellow bready background, subtle grassy and citrussy hop bitterness in the finish but kind of restrained (not turning IPA-like, contrary to my expectations), some solvents. Nothing too great, but to me this is surely the best of the three editions so far.

Tripel Hop-bieren kunnen lekker zijn, maar deze vond ik niet zo speciaal. Dan zijn er veel betere

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
This beer is near abbey tripel territory, but has some features lacking. Appearance is bland and dull, head is almost non-existent. Aroma is musty, sour hay and flowery, but seems slightly off. Taste is also underwhelming, sweet and buttery, but without the hops punch you’d expect from it having three kinds. A little more work and this might be really, really good.
