4.2/5  rDev +9.1%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.25

light golden colour with a slight haze, 1 finger white head with mainly fine bubbles
aroma begins herbal like Austrian Almdudler. later also some pale malt sweetness comes through, no graininess; I do not get the typical interplay of clove and fruity esters typical for traditional tripels, well they call it hoppy tripel. retronasal there is more herbal notes
malt is very subdued in the taste and provides just a little balance to the hoppy onslaught. There is a fair amount of bitterness but it is a rather clean bittereness; it lingers but does not build, leaving you for wanting more.
light body for such a high alcohol beer but not watery in any way. there is sugar used as it is the tradition in tripels but it does not show in any off flavors (green apples!) but just the slim body
Dangerously drinkable hoppy tripel. Very well done!

33cl bottle pourchased in a small beer store in Northern France, poured into a mug.

Pours a three inches head foamy head fading quickly.

Smells very much Belgian yeast and taste the same. Hints of apricots, peaches.

Overall a good tripel. Not a masterpiece, not world class but worthy of a sip. Have to mention it wasn't all that expensive and I assume fairly available in Brussels.

Once again, the eradication of the Bottle Backlog here at Chez Woody enables me to conduct a modest horizontal, this time with the beers of Brasserie de la Senne.

From the bottle: "Ale Hand Crafted & Refermented in the Bottle".

I could see some lees on the punt, so once I had Pop!ped the cap, I gave it a VERY gentle pour. Once a sufficient amount had been decanted, an in-glass swirl raised a finger of foamy, eggshell-white head with decent retention that slowly fell to wisps. Color was Amber to Deep Amber-Light-Copper (SRM = > 9, < 13) with NE-quality clarity. Nose was very fruity, and slightly tart, especially with notes of apricot, but also with scents of peach, pear, apples, grapes and a light breadiness. Mouthfeel was medium-to-full, not quite creamy, but on the approach. The taste was less sweet than the nose had suggested, but instead, it was biscuity with a very peach-like presence. It was very evocative of peach cobbler! I found it to be very tasty and quite unexpected. Finish was semi-dry, evidence of the yeast having really done its job.

Tripels, primarily, should be zesty. That doesn't necessarily mean more hops. In my book, Jambe De Bois leans too heavily on hops. I might Have again, but not with food.

2/20/17 Re-tasting and re-pairing with Indian food. The carbonation helped with the variety. The food was so spicy that I didn't notice the hops. Solution ! Slight up-rating Overall.

L: Poured from a bottle to a goblet. Had a yellow color and a cloudy consistency. There was an inch of foamy head that lasted a fair amount of time. OK lacing.

S: A decent, but not spectacular aroma of Belgian yeast, fruit, and malt.

T: Tasted of some fruit (apples, pears, orange), Belgian yeast, light malt, a little hoppiness, a bready quality, and a very unwelcome medicinal quality in the finish. This last element kind of wrecks what could have been a solid flavor. It's very abrasive and in direct contrast to the fruitiness of the flavor.

F: A well-carbonated beer with a mostly dry, yet harsh finish. Medium-bodied.

O: Definitely an uneven beer. Could have been much better than what it was.

Regrettably brief notes @ Moeder Lambik in Brussels:

Pours a gorgeous fluffy soft white cap that sticks around for a good 15 minutes - damned impressive @ 8% ABV. Body is a clear pale yellow.

Aroma is complex, though does suffer from that classic tripel booziness. Soft biscuity yeasts, Belgian pale malt, nuanced floral hop notes. Aromatic intensity is above average. Less aggressive and aroma than most tripel beers.

Taste doesn't match the aroma per se. There's heavy funkiness throughout, possibly from brettanomyces. Light and refreshing, but that 8% isn't unnoticeable. Smooth, wet, approachable presence on the palate.

Drinkable and enjoyable, with a funky edge. Better than many tripel style brews, but that pesky booziness does hold it back.

Low B- (3.33) / WORTHY
