Notes/Commercial Description:
Mariënrode Triple is a blond high fermentation beer with secondary fermentation in the bottle. It is brewed with local malt and other locally harvested products. As soon as you poor this beer in our special Halen glass you smell the fruity aromas coming from the Belgian Abbey Beer yeast. Next there is a floral note, originating from the Belgian hops and touch of local spring flower honey. Finally there is the clear pleasant resounding malty character that balances with the bright acidity combined with natural carbonation that gives the sparkling zest to this beer.

This beer is amazingly unique. It is difficult to describe and must be experienced first hand. I can honestly say that it is one of the best if not THE BEST beer I have ever tasted. With the high level of carbonation it drinks like a champagne while the perfect balance of hoppy flavor is there to compliment and balance the sweetness of the ale. Its not too bitter and not too sweet but rather a perfect marriage of the two. It has a very light color that is entirely unassuming but don't let this siren fool you with her innocuous and elegant appearance because light as it may look it will hand you your ass! What is perhaps most striking about the triple is how amazing smooth it drinks for the 9.1% alcohol content. Its smooth and incredibly refreshing. The ale has a very distinct buzz that is almost opiate like and it sneaks up on you. Drink a full growler of the triple and you will be talking to yourself for sure! A beer to share with a friend (or two). World Class beer. Try it and you will be hooked!

Poured from the bottle into a tulip glass. Good unexpected pop off a plastic cork, got amount of hiss. Time for one of my favorite styles, and a new tripel experience.

Body color is quite different. Murky brown with some orange highlights on edges. Nice rising streams of carbonation of white and thin up the rising glass. Head is a little small, barely two fingers on creation, but a nice easily creamy consistency, and bone white color. Pretty good if a little dirty muddy looking.

Pretty solid tripel nose. Hints of juicy apple fruit, and small candied sugar. Not overly sweet smelling which is nice. Some dry clove and cinnamon like notes give a real nice baked apple pie feeling. Quite nice.

Nice palate. Creamy sweetness with a very noticeable dry carbonation. Hints of caramel and cake on the aftertaste. Great wine and champagne like crispness with a matching fruit dryness on the finish. Fruit angle gets into almost fig like character but not as dense or sweet. Certainly feeling amber territory here just slightly which is a nice touch. Very controlled alcohol boozy quality which is hardly detectable.

Overall pretty solid and tasty tripel.
