look: 4.5 | smell: 1.5 | taste: 2 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 1.5

On tap at Delirium in Brussels, 3,50 euro for 25cl, poured into logo glass, which was even cylinder at the bottom, and bowled out at the top: almost like a wit glass.

A: a hazy yellow-beige, rock and roll head with lots of lacing, almost creamy head left on sides of glass. The haze is a little deep, but the head is something to behold.

S: Intense phenols, pretty much overwhelming. Slight solvent.

T: More intense phenols, now with some earthy spiciness to them, but still strong plastic. Fruity tangy sweet esters. Plastic, plastic, plastic!

M: Tingly carbonation, lots of salivary gland stimulation, acidic.

We had this on the recommendation of the two grizzly guys sitting next to us who insisted that it was probably the best beer in the bar (Delirium Cafe in Brussels, mind you) and the best beer on tap, hands down. We basically finished it to be amicable. Pretty ugly stuff, really, and one of the less pleasant beers we had on the trip.

Served on-draught into a La Rulles glass at the Delirium Cafe in Brussels. Reviewed from notes taken June 2010. Cost was 3.50 euro.

A: Pours a two finger head of nice cream and thickness, but mere average retention. Colour is a hazy dark yellow/light gold.

Sm: Cream, full barley, and maybe a very slight hint of butterscotch. A mild strength aroma.

T: Moderate fully expressed barley comprises the foundation, with badly handled stale cream on the climax. Malty but uninteresting. Hopping isn't notable or particularly well manifested here. Pretty simple for a tripel, and not very well balanced. Badly built. It's alright, but there's just nothing of interest to it. Not unique or special within the style.

Mf: Smooth and wet with some misplaced coarseness about the climax that doesn't suit the flavour or focus of the beer really at all.

Dr: Very highly priced by local standards. Drinks decently, and of decent quality, but not worth trying unless you're obsessed with beers in the style. Very disappointing, especially given its current ratings.

Drank from the tap into a chalice in Brussels at Delirium Cafe.

This beer is a golden yellow with a white head, doesn't look much different than your run of the mill lager. It has poor lacing.

It smeels sweet with a hint of citrus.

It tastes very sweet, but sweet in a good way that I like. This is just a very weird combination for me. I like my sweet lambics, but not when I'm not expecting it.

A little too sweet and syrupy. Doesn't really stand out as a one of the better Trippel's I've had.

Had this on tap over the weekend. Pours a cloudy orange color with a fluffy head that has nice retention and leaves some lacing on the glass. The aroma has some spices, some fruit, and some dirty hops. The dirty hops take front stage. I believe someone at the table likened the aroma to a fish tank that needed cleaned. The flavor has a bready character and a lingering flavor from the hops used, which I didn't care for. Slight spiciness and malt character. Didn't like this one much. Doesn't seem to be much of a tripel.

Hazy peach color, very fine-bubbled and attractive head rises to almost an inch on a medium hard pour. Laces very thickly, in big sheets at first. Sweet aroma, slightly dusty, golden delicious apple that's gone too mealy. Very subtle carbonation, mouthfeel about medium. Strange flavor, papery and sweet, a strong and weird emphasis on cardammon, a bit of apple but also salt water taffy. Slight hops mid mouth, unproofed yeast sludginess and a slight off aftertaste. I don't like this one much in or out of style. Not a big sense of alcohol, seems decently hidden.

A - Cloudy light amber with a medium head and thick clouds of lacing.

S - Sweet light malt with a hint of of caramel. Some grapefruit and grassy hops. Not very good. Actually smells like it will taste cloying.

T - A sweet light malt with grassy and grapefruit hops, honey. Aftertase is slightly bitter with a lingering grassy flavor and honey.

M - Smooth, medium bodied, pretty refreshing.

D - Okay. It is a bit too sweet. A drier tripel would be preferred. I doubt I will have this again, but I might if it were offered.

750ml green bottle without apparent freshness data.

Pours cloudy gold with lots of suspended sediment. An inch of white head dissipates to a sheen but leaves good lacing. The smell is mostly toasted grain with mild lime fruit undertones. Flavor is very similar. Lots of toasted malt with a touch of powdery lime, spicy yeast, and pepper. Some fruity alcohol warming over time. Body is medium light and slippery, with some unpleasant grit from the suspended yeast. Rather average.

First had: on tap at Ebenezer's Pub, Lovell, ME

Not the best tripel I've had. Easy to drink, but a little bit lacking in flavor, I thought.

Poured a hazy golden with a finger of white head and moderate carbonation. Bready, grassy aroma, with some light fruits present. A bit musty and very light fruitiness on the tongue. Thinly bready, with hop bitterness just barely detectable. Light-medium mouthfeel, and somewhat drinkable, though as I said, a little lax in the flavor department.

Served at 50F on 12-25-04. A semi-happy (not hoppy) bottle that foamed up a bit upon opening and continued it's desire towards the bottle opening throughout the evening. A spicy, sweet triple with moderate carbonation. Excellent peppery taste paired with other spices on a semi-sweet finish. A very nice, solid offering that I would enjoy again if tempted. While my review won't show 4+ points, it is very good but not pushing the realm of world class.

An orange, murky beer with a creamy head that settles into a small head.

Smell is malty with ditinct wort-like notes and a doughy and sweet malty biscuity twist. Some notes of spices, mainly coriander.

Taste is sweet and malty, again with the wort and doughy flavors. A spiciness that has coriander and lavender and some lemon zest. Mouthfeel is sweet and sticky and actually pretty full. Hops are somewhere hidden and have a light lemon soda twist. I had expected more of this beer.

Served on tap in the brewer’s glassware at Maduro in Madison, WI.

Cloudy beige lemon with loads of thick cellular cream. Fantastik retention.

Aromas of fruit, I mean big, sweet, ripe fruit. Mangos, ripe pears, passion fruit, star fruit and other high in fructose sweet fruits. Yeasty.

Almost creamy up front, flavors are mainly powdery yeasts, a bit of lemon, and dry malts. I feel really let down. The flavors really don’t match up with the aromas at all in this one. I find the taste kind of dull. A sweetness perpetuates throughout but the fruit is absent. The finish is powdery and dry to the point of being flat. This dryness works well as a palate cleanser making this beer a wonderful choice for an aperitif. Still, I find that it is not for me. Too sweet and a bit too bland.
