Good morning and happy weekend BA and participants of New Beer Weekend. It has been a while since I participated in this thread, usually busy on weekends but also sometimes lacking a new beer to chime in. Anyway here I am, for a little bit of background (lurkers and newbies do join us…!) this is the thread to review a beer new to you, how it Looks, Smells, Taste, the Mouthfeel and your Overall opinion and rating of your latest treat. Are you wordy, clinical or concise and a tad more broad in your description of a beer? The community will figure it out soon enough. Bertinchamps Tripel from Belgium. I’m genuinely surprised to have never heard of it before, despite my relatively decent knowledge of Belgian beers and triples in particular which are a very close second (next to Stouts…) preferred style of mine. 500ml bottle with a best before date of 08/15/2022 (American calendar…) poured into a Guinness pint. Looks is a dark Amber color and leaving a two inches white head fading reasonably quickly. Smells of citrus, and tropical aromas. The taste is quite expectedly for a Belgian Tripel clovey/coriander and some hints of pear, brown sugar. Moutfeel is rather medium-bodied, the 8% ABV is again well hidden as many Belgian tripel in this regard. Overall, I greatly enjoyed this Tripel, I can’t remember ever having a bad one from this country up north anyway. It’s as often a nice combination of some fruity ingredients and sweetness with a more bitter finish and some astringency. I’d buy if given the chance again, although in all honesty this is a pretty rare beer, which I found in my go-to beer store here. Cheers.
