   AROMA 7/10   APPEARANCE 4/5   TASTE 7/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 14/20
Ernest (6221) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - SEP 19, 2007
75cL bottle (BB May/08). Head is initially average sized, frothy/fizzy, light brown, mostly lasting. Body is hazy medium to dark brown, bottle conditioned. Aroma is moderately malty (cookie, toasted bread, caramel), lightly yeasty (cobwebs, basement), with notes of orange zest and coriander. Flavor is moderately to heavily sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly to moderately sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, moderately bitter. Medium to full body, watery texture, lively carbonation, lightly to moderately alcoholic. Very similar to the regular Brune, but sweeter and heavier. Enjoyable but again not socks-rocking.

BeerandBlues2 (9700) - Hanover, Maryland, USA - SEP 17, 2007
Bottle. Pours cloudy brown with an average, fizzy, light brown head, lasting, good lacing. Aroma is heavy malt (cookie, caramel, nutty), average hops (herbs, grass), average yeast (horse blanket, earth) with notes of apple and pear. Medium bodied, sticky texture, lively carbonation and a bitter finish. Average duration, light sweetness, moderate acidity and bitterness.

argo0 (11535) - Washington DC, USA - SEP 7, 2007
(750ml bottle) Large and rocky beige head atop clear, deep brown body. Aroma is moderately sweet, plum, some anise, spice, light cardamom. Taste is moderately sweet, plum, cookie, some toffee, cinnamon. Medium body, some effervescence. Alcohol very well hidden. Ok beer, though I’m not sure how this is considered a tripel.

JoeMcPhee (8410) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 26, 2007
11.2 oz bottle. Dark brown with a thick tan head. Deep sweet malty aroma with light plumminess and a bit of light berry character as well. Light rum/molasses. Soft spiciness through the middle with lots of sweet toffeeish flavours. Some chocolatey notes with a fair bit of yeasty spiciness. As it warms, more yeasty fruitiness comes to the front with cherry and berry being the most obvious. Dark caramelly finish. Pretty tasty brew. I definitely wouldn’t call it a tripel... more of a dark strong ale, but I think it is very underrated.

Palidor19 (2948) - Brandon, Florida, USA - AUG 21, 2007
I enjoy this very much. However this beer does seem to lack the proper flavors that would make this unworthy of a Belgium Triple. Malts have flavors of caramel and rich malts. low hops presence but the malts makes a great drinking

nick76 (4221) - Tampa, Florida, USA - AUG 21, 2007
UPDATED: DEC 13, 2007 The aroma is good. It’s got caramel, toasted malt, spice, fruit, and yeast. The appearance is deep amber - brown with a decent head. The flavor is like the aroma with a toffee like element. The palate is OK. Overall this is a very good beer.

JFURYCAT (1079) - East Stroudsburg, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 19, 2007
Take 41 beer geeks who mostly have quadruple digit ratings and this beer gets slammed with a 49. Aromatically this starts off strong with that triple aroma of malts, fruits and alcohol. There is a lot of carbonation upon my sip, just the way I like it. Granted the carbonation overshadows the touches of plums, grapes, wood (almost like the cork swam in the beer), and dark cherries. Maybe I have a sweet tooth but I can’t say I don’t enjoy this beer. Its too bad the aroma is so much better than the flavor. I acquired this at the NEPA case split club last Friday.

bb (6858) - Alamo, California, USA - AUG 18, 2007
Bottle. Ruby brown beer with a light beige/brown head. Caramel, slight roast aroma with some spice and dried fruit. Malty, earthy yeast with alcohol, caramel and dried fruit flavor. Body is thinner than expected. Alcohol present. The first few sips disapointed after the aroma, but after a bit it’s not that bad - but still needs somethng more (and less alchol presence).
