I had already had one Tripel while at Cafe 't Pothuiske (on 04Oct12), so I opted to try one more. This one fit the bill, a 0.33l bottle for €3.90.

I filled the tulip with a medium golden brew. It was mostly clear and had a frothy, slightly off-white head. The topping lasted nicely and produced goid lacework. Nose was fruity, a touch tropical, and had hints of spiciness. Body was medium, but it had a tad more prickly roughness than I like.

Flavor was also fruity, with mild tropical action (some mango and pear) hitting the palate. Was slightly dry at the finish, with a bit of yeasty spice present. Overall rather simplistic, yet still tasty, imo. Prosit!

A - Amber colored with an enormous white head.

S - Fresh and fruity with malts - very inviting.

T - Fresh and full of taste, in the middle pallet there is a metal like taste observable.

M - Light bitter finish and light sticky in your mouth mixed with a medium carbonation.

O - A good triple but not something special. De almost metal like taste in the middle is a killer for this beer.

'Mother Superior'. Tripel, 33 cl. bottle, bb june 2010.
Recommended by the guy at a local liquor store.

Colour orange-brown, with cream coloured head, that hold up decently. Ok carbonation.

Smell is malty, floral and citric hops, belgian yeast.
Taste is pretty spicy indeed. Pepper and clove and coriander. Malts and citrus in the background.
Not sweet, but reasonably dry in the mouthfeel. The alcohol is well masked, and the brew is still ok refreshing overall.
A tripel in the Belgian tradition, but on the agressive side of the spectrum. It's still well balanced and overall a good drink in a bar.

Fantastic Tripel that stands out on its own due to the distinct nuttiness and buttery mouthfeel. It also looks and smells as good as it tastes! Maybe a tad too sweet for some, but I think this just adds to its charm. Very easy to down (silky smooth on the palate) and one that I have gotten into trouble with on many occasions. A great session tripel and easily of my favorites.

(Poured into tulip glass)

Appearance - Deep orange/honey color. Pours a thick creamy white head with excellent retention and nice lacing. Nice carbonation.

Smell - light, citrusy smell, light malts

Taste - caramel, not too sweet, bready with a slight hoppish metallic aftertaste.

Mouthfull - round but not too thick, alcohol well disguised

Drinkability - quite enjoyble and drinkable, but at 8% you still could not have more than a couple without being seriously slowed down...

2.7/5  rDev -26.4%

Light orange copper color.
A lot of foam, creamy, not too carbonated.
At the smell malt and fresh hop, with hints of honey. Sweet fruitiness, with a touch of melon.
Malty taste, with honey. Not fresh and inviting as the one on-tap.
Average body.
The aftertaste starts fuity, and then a bitter end, but not enough.

4.05/5  rDev +10.4%

This tasty poured a deep golden color, mostly clear with low carbonation. Post pour the head was nice and taut, around a half inch or so. This remained intact for most of the drinking.

The bouquet was of malt and yeast with back hints of citrus and light summer fruits. This carried over to the taste which had just a very slight citrus linering.

This beer is easy to drink as the taste and mouthfeel are both very nice. It is a filling beer though, so you won't want to enjoy more than two in one sitting.

All and all, a fine sippin' Belgian that is almost as fine a naked gal on a hot summer's day!

Sorry but this comment is in french :

Appearance : Cuivrée-orangée, limpide, mousse abondante et assez tenace.
Smell : Arôme de malt doux et profond, nez riche aux subtilités de liqueur.
Taste : Bière ronde, fruitée, riche, moelleuse et agréablement caramélisée
Mouthfeel : bien en bouche, peu amère et à peine piquante. Arrière goût harmonieux.
Drinkability : Bonne bière douce bien fruitée.

A slightly hazy copper, golden beer with a thick, creamy head.

Smell of bananas and other exotic fruit, typical Belgian yeast products and some candi sugar smells. A medium malt base which supports the fruitiness and sugar.

Taste is full of exotic fruits like banana and tangerine, also some light solvent taste, all derived by the yeast. Basically the taste is the same as the smell. The malt is light and has some pils and bisuity taste. Hops are very low. Drinkability is OK. A decent tripel.

3.18/5  rDev -13.4%

Appearance: Pours a cloudy brownish golden. Topped by a thick, dense, white head with good retention, leaving patchy lace. Seems a bit dark for a tripel.

Smell: Fruity, with some berry aromas as well as a light floral quality. No detectable spiciness or alcohol.

Taste: Sweet berry fruitiness that fades into a neutral center with light spice and bitterness in the finish.

Mouthfeel: Light to medium-bodied, moderate carbonation.

Drinkability: Too sweet.
