A simple beer but with enough flavor to keep you going. The look is better than the taste. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Jessenhofke Tripel K
Niks speciaal, tripel met weinig smaak, weinig aroma en geen volmondigheid.

Jessenhofke Tripel K
Bottle at home. So. What to say? Even without opening the beer, i feel a little bit discusted already. To name your beer triple K ( KKK) without any form of context seriously raises questions. I have a hard time believing this is a coincidence, or an unnoticed accident. This is plain wrong, and I can only hope to see a very quick rebranding of this beer. They’re probably in for a lot of trouble if the wrong ( well, they’re not wrong, actually ) people find out about this. The lawsuits would have been piled up already if this was released over in the US. Seriously, jessenhofke, try and sent this in for label aproval in US. Damn... Anyway, the beer itself pours rather clear, darker blonde, foam is none-existent within seconds. Smell is malty, mild bitterness. Even a hint of citrus. taste is fairly bitter, Belgian yeast takes over quickly after, a bunch of fruityness ( very, very mild banana, some oranges ) a touch of sweet, as well as a mild touch of bitterness. Aftertaste is mostly the fruit-reminding Belgian yeast. Decent MF, rather high carbo. I’d like to say nothing is off here, but there is.. CHANGE THE FREAKIN’ NAME!!!

Golden, foamy. Light Belgian yeast, light milky sweet grape juice. More interesting than expected. Light bitter, drinkable carbonation. Pretty good actually. (33cl bottle from Prik&Tik Leuven)

Jessenhofke Tripel
Voici une triple bien spéciale...aromatisée aux épices et même à l’ail apparemment. Le résultat n’en est pas cependant pas exceptionnel avec une bière présentant des déséquilibres et à l’intérêt gustatif incertain. De robe blonde (EBC aux alentours de 21), voilée, cette Jessenhofke Tripel présente une effervescence marquée (très fines bulles) et une mousse blanche, abondante de quatre centimètres d’épaisseur. Le nez est peu développé, plutôt fleuri avec une petite pointe d’agrumes. Rien d’exceptionnel. Le début de la dégustation sera plutôt marqué par des arômes relativement plats et sans grand intérêt. Une attaque plutôt orientée sur l’amertume, fraîche, et des arômes principalement de pain avec de petites nuances d’agrumes. La deuxième bouche est linéaire avec une arrière bouche souple, sur des arômes également de pain, relevés tout de même par quelques épices (une petite présence d’ail se fait alors ressentir). La troisième bouche se positionne sur l’amertume avec un goût de plastique peu agréable (houblons Challenger Goldings et Fuggles). Sur le final, le goût se renforce tout de même pour gagner en intensité avec des arômes d’herbes et une pointe d’épices (encore un peu d’ail d’ailleurs). Celui-ci est d’une longueur correcte, avec malheureusement ce petit goût de plastique qui reste ensuite en bouche. Rien à dire par contre sur l’alcool (8 % Abv) et le sucre, bien utilisés. Ail, ail, ail...pas exceptionnel tout cela!
