COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This golden hued ale is marked by passion fruit and herbal notes in the aroma, with subtle suggestions of banana and honey surfacing from its deep and complex palate. The Tripel's finish is remarkably long and soothing.

Kalli (502) - Falun, SWEDEN - APR 24, 2004
Light golden, lovely creamy head. Aroma of pineapple, mostly sweet but also fresh. Bit fruity, pineapple and banana flavour wit some cellary notes and noticable alcohol.

haukur (1587) - Reykjavik, ICELAND - APR 24, 2004
batch:45. Nice yeasty aroma with hoppy citrus notes. It pulled a rather small head but a firm one. Taste was a bit of a let down, very fresh subtle taste with a fruity undertone of bananas, peaches and oranges, nicely blended with hops and malt. This brew is very nice, but I wanted a bit more out of it

Lubiere (12241) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - APR 17, 2004
Hazy blonde beer, with a spicy aroma, lots of coriander, with yeasts and alcohol and mixed fruits. The alochol warmth hits you first followed by spices and orange peels, and bananas. Wonderfulley rich and warm body.

warrior (213) - Mt. Wolf, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 9, 2004
Pale yellow slight haze in the beer. Med white head that held up for an average amt of time. Good rich malty candy sugar aromas with some spiceyness. Complex flavors, phenoilc with sweetness followed with some spice and alcohol. A good overall belgian trippel.

Holdwine (1140) - Beertimore, Maryland, USA - APR 7, 2004
Killer beer! I had it on tap (Reserve- 9.8%) from a batch that was aged in bourbon casks (Jim Beam). Strong bourbon notes all over the place. Combine with an awesome triple and I didn't know where to go. Nice suble vanilla and banana notes and all that great yeast. I cannot say enough positive things about this beer.

HopasaurusRex (195) - Glen Ellyn, Illinois, USA - APR 7, 2004
On Tap-Blind Tiger NYC-Nice clarity, but no head-might be something about the way it was poured. Good solid malt presence and alchohol apparent as well. Would love to have a few more of these on a cool winter afternoon. Nice belgian from a great brewery.

tidiaguy (168) - Hawley, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 6, 2004
Couldy golden straw colored body, tight bubbled white head, laceing seems to stick around for awhile. Aroma is spicey/ malty with a fruity back bone and some mild phenolic yeastiness. Spicey yeasty flavors dominate a citrusy fruit body (grapefruit, grape, mild lemon). A slight malt sweetness comes through near the end. Palate is dry with a lingering after taste. Tripels are not my favotite but good none the less.

pobenohne (504) - Northern Liberties, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 6, 2004
Big bottle, hand marked batch 49. These Americans have put together a Tripel that can compete with the best: fin du Monde, Maredsous, and Karmelit. Solid all around performance.

DarkElf (3050) - La Jolla, California, USA - APR 5, 2004
Competently constructed American version of a Belgian tripel; Sweet, spicy (cloves!), slightly bitter, balanced and completely in character for a Belgian tripel, and on par with the typical tripel from Belgium; The spiciness comes out mostly in the finish; The mild nose is lightly sweet with some spicy notes; Carbonated mouthfeel and fairly sticky; Golden yellow in color, too light to be a shade of golden, and definitely a little hazy; White head is composed of tiny bubbles and has solid retention, but lacing slides down the glass
