500 ml bottle into chalice, no bottle dating. Pours lightly hazy/cloudy bright gold color with a small dense white head with good retention, that reduces to a thin cap that lingers. Light spotty lacing clings on the glass, with some light streaming carbonation. Aromas of apricot, pear, apple, white grape, black pepper, honey, bread, clove, herbal, grass, and yeast earthiness. Very nice aromas with good balance and complexity of fruity/spicy yeast, pale malt, and earthy hop notes; with good strength. Taste of apricot, pear, apple, white grape, black pepper, wheat, honey, bread, clove, herbal, grass, and yeast earthiness. Fair amount of earthy yeast spice on the finish; with lingering notes of apricot, pear, apple, white grape, clove, honey, bread, herbal, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Very nice complexity and robustness of fruity/spicy yeast, pale malt, and earthy hop flavors; with a good malt/yeast balance and no cloying flavors after the finish. Light carbonation and medium bodied; with a smooth and lightly slick/bready mouthfeel that is good. Alcohol is pretty well hidden with only a small warming present after the finish. Overall this is a very nice tripel style. All around good complexity and balance of fruity/spicy yeast ester, pale malt, and earthy hop flavors; and smooth to sip on for the ABV. A very enjoyable offering.

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.
