Pleasant strong pale although the bottle clearly labels this a tripel. Yeasty aroma, minimal lasting head. Medium mouthfeel. Sugar and bananna. Light cloudy colour, easy drink and pleasant yeast aftertaste. Would be weak for an aftertaste, bottle conditioned.

Bottle bought a few weeks ago at Beer Mania in Brussels, poured into a tulip glass. There was a surprising flash of copper in the pour, and the beer indeed settled out more coppery and clear than I expected for a tripel. A big cloud of old-ivory head foamed up and persisted. Pretty good-looking overall. The aroma is of peach, banana, surprising little yeast, quite mild on the whole. The flavor is more yellow fruit but with a caramely-rootbeer kind of sweetness, plus a bit of coriander and spice to help bring a clean finish. I could go for another.

Bottle: Poured a light amber ale with a big foamy head with good retention but little to no lacing. Aroma of sweet candi sugar with some very light spices and yeast. Taste is also dominated with some cloying sweetness with some hints of spices. Texture is somewhat oily and cloying with a medium body and no alcohol was discernable. Definitely lacking some character to make this one truly appalling.

A: The beer is hazy brownish yellow in color. It poured with a finger high beige head that died down but never completely faded away.
S: There are moderate aromas of sweet fruits in the nose—apples and pears stand out in particular.
T: The taste has some sweetness and is quite fruity like the smell with flavors of apples. There are also some hints of acidity.
M: It feels medium-bodied and a bit smooth on the palate with a moderate to high amount of carbonation.
O: Although the beer is quite sweet, it is not cloying and the fruity flavors are both complex and interesting.

A: Clear copper golden with lots of fine white particles floating in it, a finger of yellowish head, almost no visible carbonation.

S: Bananas, sweet candy, dough, Belgian complex yeasts, phenols, slight smokiness. Somewhat like Duvel.

T: Chlorine, bananas, sweet candy, phenols, complex yeastiness. Chicken fat.

M: Medium somewhat syrupy body, low carbonation.

O: Cool bottle, up to standard, just not outstanding. It says on my bottle its a tripel.

Lamoral Tripel
Style: Belgian Tripel Ale
ABV: 8%

Source: 750 ml capped bottle. Best before 3/3/07

Appearance: Pours dark amber, almost orange, into my Chimay goblet. Fine white one-finger head lingers.

Smell: Malty fruit and flower notes come through in the nose.

Taste: Wow… very interesting. It’s sweet up front – almost honey-like – but a surprisingly crisp finish keeps it from being cloying.

Mouthfeel: It doesn’t appear overly carbonated, but there’s just enough to keep the initial sip lively and the finish crisp.

Drinkability: I really like this beer, but even given the crisp finish I’m not sure how much I could drink; seems like a good one to end the night on.

Clear light golden color with a nice full off-white head and very active carbonation. Excellent perfectly balanced orange-rind fruit and light spiciness (coriander, pepper, phenols) in both aroma and flavor. Perfectly balanced with alcohol being well masked. Light-medium bodied and maybe a touch too airy to be perfect.

Quite possibly one of the best Tripel's I've ever had... perfectly balanced in my book. A penultimate tripel ?

Per Label: "Degmont" & "Triple Abbey Ale"

Pours darker than most tripels, somewhat amber in color, with a large, fluffy head. Smell is floral and spicy with hints of citrus. Taste is very nice, orangey-sweet, with a lot of unidentifiable herbal undertones. A bit of honey, too, on top of a nutty yeast flavor. Mouthfeel is spicy and smooth, without being phenolic or oily at all. An excellent beer to go with some Belgian chocolate!

BB 01-08-06. Good appearance with huge head and beautifull clear golden beer. Nose is very fruity remembering of grapes and apples but also koreander and litle aromatic hops used. Low maltyness and slightly alcoholic and a honey hint. Taste is fresh too but litle empty also beeing sweet, koreander, slightly alcoholic and very low bitterness. Plesant mouthfeel and huge carbonisation makes this one easy drinkable but no high flyer in taste.

Pours golden light copper color. Very effervescent at first, then relaxes. Sent is not too strong, but smells of citrus, candy, apple and lemon, little to no know hop character. The taste is sweet citrusy, mild hints of pine a little sticky, with a dry finish. This is a pleasant ale, nice for summer and relaxation. This is definitely a citrusy beer, though it doesn't have the flavor of fruit being directly added, just an additive note of the beverage. When I saw tripel on the label I expected a "tripel", with the spice palate of (banana and sorts) Chimay or Westmalle, but that is not what I got, it was something more like duvel. This is not a tripel in the sense I hoped, but a decently good Belgian strong pale ale.

Oh my. That is a lot of junk floating around in my beer.

Pours a cloudy brown. Huge gobs of green/brown goop floating around. Nas-tay. Nose is interesting honey tones. Floral-laced honey. Flavor brings the same, in interesting, deeper earthy tones. Feel is smooth on liquid. Carbonation is smooth and low. Nice drinker. Looks nasty as all get out with the floaties in there, but I like this one.

Got three bottles of this from the Michael Jackson rare beer club. I drank one at the time, but failed to take any notes, so I only remember it being a usual Belgian tripel, nothing out of the ordinary. So after about 15 months how does it taste? It pours orange with an almost acidic citrus aroma, an OK head as the beer is plenty carbonated. The taste is almost distractingly sweet, with a heavy citrusy orange taste. Again, very sweet. Finish is dry with prunes. Not a bad beer, but way too sweet for my taste. Beyond any saison or Belgian beer I 've had before. I'll drink this as fresh as I can from here on out.

750 ml capped bottle poured into proper glassware, a Lamoral Degmont glass.

Best before 03/03/07

A: This bottle opened with a loud pop and started to overflow from the bottle before I poured my 1st glass. The beer poured a hazy golden color with a large 3 finger fluffy white head leaving a thin lacing on the glass.

S: The nose was sweet of malts, citrus and bready yeast.

T: The taste starts sweet of burnt caramel and honey then you get a to the coriander spice and fruits overtones of the Belgian yeast and finished almost dry.

M: The mouthfeel was a thin to medium syrupy feel with a tingling carbonation.

D: The drinkability was very good for a beer almost 4years past its prime.
