gunnfryd (10838) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - DEC 27, 2009
Bottle. Golden- orange colour with a white head. Aroma is yeast, fruit. Flavour is sweet, apple, malt, fruit, yeast. OK beer.

Nate (3740) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 29, 2009
From bottle at Brasserie Erasmus. Sweet medium malt aroma with some honey and caramel. Light neutral fruit bouquet with some mild hops character. Some yeast notes, too. Overall, a pleasant tripel aroma. Medium dark orange hazy with thin foamy lacing off-white head. Medium watery body with medium-high carbonation. Efferevescent. Starts and stays pretty sweet. Nice malt character with some caramel and honey. Light yeast chalky notes and a bit of bitterness. Mild alcoholic taste, too. Finishes with light sweet notes and a bit of astringency. Nice tripel

garthicus (2693) - Dublin, IRELAND - NOV 19, 2009
Shared by HogTownHarry with Blankboy and I. Appearance: Toffee coloured orange with teeny tiny flecks and a whispy white head. Aroma: Peppery, yeast, lemons, a good deal of sweetness and a little alcohol. Flavour: Bitter lemon, alcohol, salty and cloying, super long bitter finish. Not a fan at all.

HogTownHarry (6126) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - NOV 19, 2009
Bottle ( 330ml ). Shared with blankboy and garthicus, via trade with glouglouburp. Cloudy orange, average off-white creamy head; floaties. Aroma of tangerine, yeast, alcohol and floral bitterness. Taste - more orange, a bit sweeter, man this is floral; not as much alcohol. Slick, slightly acidic mouthfeel, a dry sour aftertaste. Decent.

Glouglouburp (6022) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 20, 2009
In short: A weird, overly yeasty strong Belgian golden ale with too much overripe rotting fruits. Really off.
How: Bottle 330ml, consumed fresh soon after receiving it through private importations
The look: Cloudy dirty orange body with many small particles. Small white head
In long: Nose of overripe tropical fruits. Taste of overripe peaches, red and green apples and a little vanilla ice-cream, ripe pineapples. Together the malts & yeast also have a wet-cereals feeling, like basic breakfast cereals that got too much humidity and got all mushy. That gives the beer a very chewy/doughy sensation. Spicy herbal hops provide a little dryness and a much welcomed distraction. I had two bottles of this thing. I thought there was something wrong with the first bottle. Waited a few months and drank the other bottle. Same mess. As messy as a soup sandwich.

shrubber85 (7732) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - OCT 18, 2009
Bottle. Sharp apricot and alcohol aroma. Cloudy orange-yellow color with giant white head. Sweet apricot, sharp alcohol, and bitter hops flavor - pretty evenly blended. Nice beer but pretty much a standard tripel with nothing to set it apart from other Belgian tripels.

weaselkenievil (1608) - Cheshire, ENGLAND - SEP 9, 2009
Bottle. Gold with white head. Slightly buttery tasting. Alcohol is certainly detectable. Sweet, fruity, some vanilla, some orange. Something about it just didn’t sit right with me.

Bontus (634) - Flanders, BELGIUM - AUG 29, 2009
Bottle tasting @ Alvinne. Pours hazy yellow with a creamy head (others poured with no head at all but tasted similarly). Rather sweet tripel, vanilla upfront. Hops follow up and deliver a nice bitter punch. Long lasting finish but not overly complex.

RichardGretton (4260) - Leicestershire, ENGLAND - AUG 14, 2009
Bottle. Cloudy golden brown beer with a strong white head. The aroma is deeply spiced and vinous, and the flavour strongly bitter, spiced and vinous. Overall a nice Belgian beer.

Tap @ Erasmus ... hazy yellow .orange ... big foam head ... yeasty fruity dry hop nose ... bitter linger ... quite dry ... some orange ... some candi suger ... grew on me.
