(11% ABV so tread lightly.)

The beer was crystal clear with a white frothy head which lasted very well to coat the glass.

The aroma was fruity and nicely spicy with strong pepper and an estery fruit chracter and a caramel malt.

The flavor was lightly spicy with a low caramel and light malt presnece. The flavor almost had a pineapple characteristic.

The finish was dry with a strong peppery character long into the aftertaste. The body was meidum and the moderate carbonation lent a creamy mouthfeel. The beer gave a nice warming presence after consumption. Actually a very good tripel. Be careful with this one at 11%.

Served in a Garre glass, at Garre in Brugge of course, on 9/13/06 and 9/14/06.

I stopped in at De Garre in Brugge on a sunny Sunday afternoon. It took a few tries before we got the address right. It was served on a tray with some cheese and this was the perfect afternoon snack. Brewed by Van steenberge for De Garre as their house beer, this is a delightful tripel. A creamy, rich, lasting head with tonnes of lacing on their unique glass. This isn't a first class tripel, but it hit the spot that day. It was fruity, with lots of malt character and finished very sweet. Alcohol is well hidden. Body is cloudy, golden yellow in colour. Recommended if you're in Brugge.

This beer is made for the bar de garre in Bruges - a great little place to visit if you can find it! It is a well rounded beer, and you should certainly try it while here, but not the greatest trippel by any means.
It has a lovely light blonde color and slightly cloudy, served in its own unique chalice. It has fantastic head retention and thick, intricate Belgium lacing. The head retention gives it a delightful little puff when finishing the glass.
The medium mouthfeel was appropriate to the style. The nose is slightly floral and dry with some malty notes. The taste was a little less pronounced than the scent, but basically the same.

Tasted in Staminee de Garre, Brugge on tap 22nd May 2005.

Served in unique glass that has a thick stem to it. This makes it look very good, but is slightly awkward. Anyway, appearence is quite light in colour, more straw than amber with very nice head.

Smell is good, hoppy and fresh but more floral than I expected.
It is the beer of the house, and is quite strong (at 8%) and tastes like that (strong, I mean). No disguising the alcohol, but this is a quite drinkable tripel with a good mouthfeel.

I quite liked this, even if it is not the best tripel ever. If drinking this upstairs in de Garre (as I was), beware the almost vertical stairs when exiting!

This is one of the house beers on tap at Staminee De Garre in Bruges.

Appearance: A golden pour with a medium and very rich looking white head.

Smell: Medium nose with a very lemony and malty kick to it. Somewhat flowery and herbal.

Taste: Again, a vert floral taste with a slight bitterness and herbal character. Some nice maltiness here that helps turn the corner to a semi-sweet finish. A pinch of sweet-bread in there somehwere as well.

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied beer w/good maltiness and fullness. Grainy and floarl mouthfeel.

Drinkability: Ahhhh, it was worth a try. Half decent beer, worth trying once.
