Nogne Tiger Tripel.
A pleasant bright gold tripel, nice lacing. Smell has lots of limes and fresh yeasty esters. Taste is full of more citrus, lemons, honey, with a nice balance and pleasing balance. Some spiciness, light pepper, with a dry yeasty finish. Mouthfeel is delicious with a hint of sweetness, lots of pale malt, getting a hint of the peatiness they used but especially on the back of the throat but otherwise a traditional and well balanced Tripel. Pleasant amounts of carbonation and lots of nice yeasty esters adding to the feel, lemon rind, biscuit malt, slight restrained sugary and honey sweetness with nice floral hops.

Picked this up at my favorite beer store in Belgium, Dranken Geers. Murky amber-orange pour with a bright white two finger head with nice retention and great lacing. Pretty typical Belgian Triple nose with lots of spicy, grassy, citrus notes along with hints of Belgian yeast, lemon, and what appears to be a touch of peat??? The taste is a bit less typical with more sweet caramel malt than I had expected. Hints of tangerine, lemon, grass, yeast, biscuit, bubblegum, apple, and more of that curious peaty character. The mouthfeel is surprisingly creamy and slightly chewy with nice carbonation and a smooth finish. Overall, this was a pretty solid beer right up to where the peat reared its ugly head. Just can't relate to a peaty triple...

500ml bottle poured into tulip 5/19/13 from notes

A cloudy golden orange with lots of tiny particles but just a few bubbles feeding a thin film of soapy foam even after a hard pour, lots of random lace on the top inch of my glass

S I wasn't expecting peat smoked malt and that took me by surprise, citric hops and pineapple with some caramel and brewers candy, some Belgian yeast but I can't shake the strong band-aid notes that are hard to ignore after you find them

T much like the nose but the band-aids a little burnt, this reminds me of Sunturnbrew but not quite as bad, the triple notes are still there but are being overwhelmed

M full bodied but could a few more bubbles, well concealed booze but I don't like the adhesive aftertaste

O the peat smoke is killing what could've been a great triple, no booze at all and some great aspects but they can't shine through all the burnt band-aid

no issues downing the bottle but I wouldn't buy it again, the smoked malt just doesn't work for me. I'd love to try this without the smoke because I could see it being great much like almost every beer I've had from these guys.

Poured from a 500 ml bottle into a snifter.

A: hay gold in color and slightly cloudy, there was no head whatsoever upon pour.

S: fruity, yeasts, malts and phenols..overall the aroma is very mild.

T: malty, sweet and alcohol noticeable.

M: medium carbonation and body.

O: in a word, disappointing. It just misses the mark. The taste is just off for a triple. I would like to think it's because I got a bad bottle, but the bb date is in 2014. Starting with the lack of a prominent frothy head, I felt something wasn't right about this beer. Unfortunately the taste also lacked on this beer.

500ml bottle. How do we make our mark on this venerable style? Why, take something fully foreign, and just toss it right in there. Sigh.

This beer pours a hazy, murky medium golden straw hue, with two fingers of loosely foamy, bubbly dirty white head, which leaves a low-lying, seemingly undulating vista of wavecrest lace around the glass as it duly evaporates. Kind of weird not to have to clean up overflow on the counter from an overly aggressive head.

It smells of mildly peaty smoke, brine, semi-sweet pale malt, acrid yeast, a middling pome fruitiness, some suppressed candi sugar, and a bit of witbier spiciness. The taste is more thankfully restrained phenolic, forlorn Scottish isle medicinal peatiness, tacked on, rather than deftly blended, to a yeasty, sugary pale Belgian maltiness, with a white pepper and blotted coriander spiciness standing by in the wings.

The bubbles are pretty laid back, like a lolling Lowlands brae (keeping with the theme here), the body an indistinct medium weight, and actually rather smooth, the Island effect choosing to fully cease operations here and now, as a slight creaminess burgeons.

Thankful am I to Nøgne Ø's acquiescence in keeping this particular Scottish malt mostly on the down-low, as eventually the standard Tripel offerings come bleeding through. I know they lie just across the North Sea from Scotland proper, but this just feels like they had a bit of Islay malt left over from that mindfuck of a brew called Sunturnbrew, and had to find a use for it. Unnecessary, when the underlying Tripel may be (we shall never know now, with this one) well worthy all on its own.
