Stuedmaster (233) - Vista, California, USA - JUL 30, 2014
From a 750 ml bottle, dated 06-04-2013, 9% abv, served at 56 degrees F. Nice golden amber pour, small white head that quickly fades, no lacing. The bubbling carbonation is visible in the glass. Subtle aroma of light caramel, sweet malt, honey, coriander, and citrus peel. A full flavor blend of citrus sour and honey sweet with a buttery quality and a subtle spiciness, very well balanced. Full bodied, creamy and buttery texture, lively carbonation, and well balanced finish. Very refreshing, yet satisfies the desire for a strong beer.

Very good tripel! 25cl bottle poors with almost no head - quickly fading till no head. Amber, almost orange color but very clear for a Belgian triple. Very tasty with caramel and typical Belgian yeast dominating. Conceals the 8,5% alcohol very well.

One of the best beers in Europe. Very hoppy. High alcohol content is well concealed. Be careful!

Een lekkere tripel. Oranjekleurig, geen schuimkraag. Smaak laat zich vergelijken met andere goede tripels.

A very good tripel. Lots of coriander on the nose, some caramel, some alcohol. Flavour pretty complex, sweet to start with, getting more dry and alcoholic towards finish. Orange in colour, very weak foam from my .33l bottle.

berkshirejohn (4645) - Bracknell, Berkshire, ENGLAND - JUL 2, 2014
30cl bottle from Tesco’s, Camberley. An amber pour with a quickly fading white head; the aroma has some musty, sourish apples and Belgian yeast; the taste is smooth and buttery with some pleasantly sour fruit; and a rich warming butterscotch finish. Very drinkable, and very moreish.

Moravius (567) - Berlin, GERMANY - JUL 1, 2014
Flasche aus Belgien, einen Monat nach Ablauf des MHD konsumiert. - Orangegelb, leicht trüb mit Schwebteilchen. - Obergärig-fruchtige Nase mit Karamel, Hefe, Pfirsich und mildem, krautig-würzigem Hopfen. - Antrunk sehr süß karamelmalzig und hefig; nur gedämpft fruchtig (milde Orangenschale, dazu Erdbeere?). Schaumig rezent, weiches Mundgefühl. Milde Hopfenbittere im Abgang. - Angenehmes, gepflegtes Tripel, aber im Vergleich zu anderen Tripels etwas langweilig.

Bottle, 300ml. A golden colour with a small head. A yeasty, hoppy aroma with citrus and spice. Flavour of hops, banana bread, caramel, biscuit and sugar. A little bitterness. A sweet, spicy finish. Very drinkable and a good example of the style.
