reebtogi (5754) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 6, 2011
500ml ceramic bottle pours a slightly cloudy amber color with about 2 fingers of white head which leaves some nice lacing on the glass. Aroma is fruity with some yeast and spice and a trace of hops. Taste is malty sweet with some yeast and spice with a lingering hop bitterness in the finish. Medium body and pleasing carbonation for a nice feeling on the tongue. Overall, this is quite a nice tripel.

AndrewC (356) - Canterbury, Kent, ENGLAND - SEP 23, 2011
Bottle. Smells of damp grain. Looks cloudy. Tastes dry and of heavy alcohol with a yeasty blah-ness. Drying clammy palate. Can you pour this over Christmas puddings and light it? Would probably be the best use.

oh6gdx (25472) - Vasa, FINLAND - JUL 13, 2011
Bottled (thanks Samuli!). Hazy deep golden colour with a small, but long lasting white fluffy head. Leaves some lace. Aroma is fruits, sweet malty notes as well as mild bready and some spices. Flavour is very similar in a quite nice balance. Also mild alcohol shows. Nice tripel.

CapFlu (5101) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 8, 2011
(50cl copper ceramic bottle) Purchased at The Strath in Victoria, BC, for $9.90. Pours a clouded, deep amber body with lively carbonation and a thin, white, foamy, quick-dissipating head. Nose of lemon and highly yeastiness. Good malt front gets broken by the citrus body. Does a good job hiding the ABV. Very smooth, almost milky texture. Good.
