Here you can use some formulas to solve this problem.

1. Select three cells which will place the result, for instance, C1:E1, and type this formula =TRANSPOSE(OFFSET($A$1,B1,0,3,1)), and press Shift + Ctrl + Enter keys. See screenshot:

Tip: in the formula, A1 is the first cell of the data list, B1 is the blank cell next to the data, 3 means block by every three data.

2. In the cell B2, type this formula, =B1+4, and drag the auto fill handle down to cells needed this formula.
