COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our interpretation of the classic Belgian Tripel style is faithful... to a point. Pilsner and wheat malts for a smooth, nutty base, and a dry, floral finish. Finished with a hefty Citra dry hop, providing huge mango and citrus flavours. Welcome to the Tripel, Tile Hill style.

DruncanVeasey (8603) - Nr NUNEATON, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - MAR 2, 2017
Bottle, March 2016. Veiled orange capped finely with white. Juicy deep orange rind, neat lemon barley cordial, liqueur, tangerine cheesecake, slightly spontaneous aroma squarely in the hop gardens of Flanders. On the palate that authentic Belgian something; peppery, dank limey hop, spice and herb; vanilla, honeyed Cointreau warmth without burn, grey squash, candied peels, booze infused sponge, feathery green herb alluding at parsley or dill. Soft mango not intruding upon its essential Belgianess. Possibly the best English impersonation of a Belgian ever. An elegant sipper. The scent and heft of TB taking things to another level.

Bottle at home. Almost a wheat nose. Complex hops. Herbal and floral. A little weird but quite enjoyable. Full bodied.

jmgreenuk (10519) - Kuala Lumpur, MALAYSIA - JUL 23, 2016
Tap at the Birmingham Beer Bash, 2016. Poured a hazy light amber with a thin white head. The aroma is medicinal hop, yeast, light alcohol. The flavour is moderate to strong bitter with a dry Belgian yeast, sweet fruit, alcohol bitter palate. Medium bodied with soft carbonation. A fine example of a Belgian triple from a British brewer!

minutemat (6358) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - MAY 16, 2016
330ml bottle from Saucy Pears, Worcester. Pours hazy amber, moderate white head. Opened without checking the label after a particularly spicy burger and, on first sip, assumed it was a juicy tropical DIPA. On further investigation, some creamier leanings seem present. Soft, creamy and sweet with a soft vanilla icing aroma. Taste has moderate spice, perhaps doesn’t have the body or carbonation of an Abbey tripel. It’s an enjoyable effort tho.

Fin (11169) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - APR 30, 2016
Bottle from Beer Gonzo shop, Earlsdon, Coventry, Saturday 30th April 2016 Pours light to mid amber in colour with a sticky white head. Spices on the nose with a little burnt coriander and gently toasted wood. Soft in the mouth, a little bit of vanilla and toffee and spice, lovely sweetness. Nice warmth but never tastes at all boozy.

jamestulloch (4465) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - APR 13, 2016
Bottle (9.0% ABV) from The Beerhive. Murky brown body with a thick off-white head. Faint lacing. Aroma of celery, mango, flowers and pine. Flavour of red apple, honey and subtle spices. Medium body with a smooth, oily texture. Light fizz. Really good. Fruity and hoppy. More like an Imperial IPA than a Tripel.

allmyvinyl (11319) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - APR 13, 2016
330ml bottle from the Beer hive. 9%. Pours amber with a thick white head. Aromas of light spice, yeast, tropical fruit. Taste is sweet, spicy, fruits. Quite a lot going on, as my brother might say. Long, spicy finish.

johndoughty (5600) - cheslyn hay, West Midlands, ENGLAND - MAR 16, 2016
Bottle. The label said that it was 9 per cent. Cloudy brown with a small head. Fruity with some spices thrown in as well. Complex but very easy to drink. Left lots of lacing. A good one.

Scrumpy369 (1000) - Budapest, HUNGARY - FEB 18, 2016
Bottle shared at green sheep. Nose is dominated by citrussy notes with some tropical fruits. Taste is also domnated by mango/tropical fruits. Very nice beer.
