A life just as ordinary

Just like you, but different

Beer – #137 – Maredsous 10 Tripel

Back to the Belgium beers with a Maredsous 10 Tripel – Brewed by Duvel Moortgat In the style of a Abbey Tripel in BreendonkPuurs, Belgium.

Maredsous - TripelA bottle conditioned  Golden beer with a characteristically fresh bouquet and sweet after-taste. 330ml of a 10% ABV beer.

There’s quite an alcohol aroma up-front. It’s a lovely chestnut golden with loud carbonation that gives up a decent head,

The aroma, as I can discern it changes to sour almost a vinegar.  There’s a maltly sweetness that you expect but it’s not prominent or pushy.

I’m a bit underwhelmed by the sour note in this, and by loudness of the alcohol. Not something that you expect to get, and frankly a bit difficult to enjoy. The strength of this beer does not make up for the shortcomings that are in it.

As a consequence the pdubyah-o-meter only slides to a 5, making this an also ran beer in the big scheme of things, which doesn’t make me happy at all. But then I come to this expecting fireworks and that’s not what I’m getting.

I’m having the sister beer the Maredsous 8 Brune next, I hope that puts more a smile on my dial
