- My Rating: C
Floreffe Triple – Brasserie Lefebvre, 8% ABV – 330ml., (Rebecq-Quenast, Belgium)
Ingredients: water, barley malt, hop, canesugar, yeast.
- Style: Abbey Tripel
- Taste: Creamy-fizzy salty chamomile honeyed malts
- Where I got it : W. 16th Liquor Store
How much: $4 (after 10% off) – 330ml., September 2013
- Do I love this enough to drink it again: no
- Would I recommend this to beer aficionados: no
Visual: Pours golden honey brown with a large cream-foamy head, long retention, lots of sticky lacing, lots of steady streams.
Nose: typical tripel honeyed malts with chamomile (lvl 5)-pungency
Attack: super crisp fizzy
Mid-palate: creamy mouthfeel, (lvl-7)-sweetness, (MAIN) weird saltiness, chamomile, honey malts,
Finish: salty off-dry hopped finish.
Summary: The strange saltiness in the mid-to-finish is hard for me to thoroughly enjoy. Although the body and depth are there, I can think of several other Belgian tripel I’d much rather enjoy.
