harrisoni (14586) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - MAY 3, 2007
33cl bottle from Noel Cuveliers. Gold thin white head. Belgian abbey tripel aroma, that belgian yeast, stone fruit and citrus aroma. Maybe more complex than most and certainly a very good aroma. It is an above average tripel. smooth, competent, well put together, certainly nothing off balance. Quite pleasing, fruit really is very nice, finish is a little metallic and really lets the rest of the beer down. Decent without hitting the heights.

Dedollewaitor (14336) - Odense, DENMARK - OCT 10, 2006
Orange golden with incredibly fine white fully lasting head. Fine lacings on the side of the glass. Aroma and taste of yeast (wheat), fruits & spices. Filling body with a soft texture. Little malty sweetness. Spices and hops dominates the fine lasting finish. Very fine tripel.

MiP (13998) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - APR 28, 2005

TBone (13449) - Pori, FINLAND - FEB 21, 2005
Bottled (BB 05/2005)
Hazy golden, good white head, lace. Aroma of apples and lemon. Good strong body. Starts with tickling carbonation, then opens tasty citric flavors and finishes with alcoholic touch. Some citric acid in the aftertaste. Balanced, good triple, straightforward.

Oakes (13154) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 23, 2004
Vibrant orangey-amber colour. Slight haze. Soft, thick head - luscious to behold. Aroma of yeast, pepper, pear, tangerine, slight grass and banana candy. Palate starts out with abundant yeastiness in the form of sweat and dust. Dry pepper alcohol notes come next, leading to a slightly sweeter middle with tangerines and apple skins. Finishes with a herbal hoppiness and a slight shot of alcohol & a kiss of sweet malt for balance. A good mix of assertiveness and balance. Nothing spectacular save for the fact that all the little things are done quite well.

Hazy golden. Aroma brings yeast, citrus and some sweeter fruits. Strong flavor without bringing too much alcohol. Malty with som vanilla, fruity and a little yeasty.
