pootzboy (1596) - Hawgville, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 6, 2005
Bottled. Pour reveals a pale gold ale, lots of carbonation for the abby style...aroma is peach-wheat-woodsy hops. Taste is tart...cider-like with malt tones and some herbal hopping finishes fairly fast for an abby (this isn’t necessarily a bad thing)with a citrus-malt aftertaste. Very good drink but seems like some age may bring out some more complexities.

muzzlehatch (4424) - Burlington, Vermont, USA - JAN 6, 2005
330 ml bottle. Another common Belgian off the list...bright, hazy gold with huge amounts of particulate matter throughout, especially post-yeast-pour; this has to be the gunkiest beer I’ve ever had, I suspect this to be a rather old bottle. Smallish, but lasting head. In the nose, honey’d peaches, caramel and jasmine, very floral and succulent. Flavor is less intoxicating, quite dry and sourish with rather heavy carbonation...peppery, short sour-apple finish. Not bad, but certainly not at the top ranks of tripels.

Pailhead (5061) - Brownstown, Michigan, USA - JAN 4, 2005
Bottle: Aroma is very fruity with apple being the fruit that stands out. A little sourness in the nose as well. Pours a transparent gold with a large bubbled head with pretty good retention. Excellent lacing. Very fruity with a more prominent apple flavor in the finish. Very slight citrus sourness in the finish. Almost no bitterness. Very fizzy mouthfeel.

Lou18 (1353) - West Paterson, New Jersey, USA - JAN 2, 2005
Poured cloudy orange out of a bottle with a large staying head. Strong aroma of yeast, malt, and SKUNK. I feel this is a bad bottle, taste like cheap skunky moose head. yul. looking over some of the ratings, I got a bad bottle.

DontFearTheHops (6) - USA - DEC 29, 2004 does not count
Cloudy orange appearance. Very fruity nose with pear coming to mind. Does not taste like an 8 percent ale. very enjoyable. Bottle, from a Belgian sampler pack.

Wiseblood (700) - Clarksville, Tennessee, USA - DEC 14, 2004
Cloudy blonde with a marked aroma of yeast, oranges and some cidery notes. The palate is delicate and malty with flavors of toffee, orange peel and tangy hops. The beer finishes with a restrained bitterness and flashes of deeper hop flavors. Well-balanced beer that doesn’t taste its strength.

Pours a slightly hazy golen colour with a huge foamy head. Citrus and spice aroma. Body lighter than expected. Taste of fruitcake and spices.

Hoss (607) - Florida, USA - DEC 5, 2004
A tingle on the tongue with a crsipness that is enjoyable. I did not find this onew overly complex but surprisingly mainstream.

SDalkoholic (2179) - Linda Vista, California, USA - DEC 2, 2004
Nice aroma thats smells of sweet fruits. A pure gold color and fizz yet big white head. Light flavor and lacking what i had expected from a tripel. Again, sweet fruits come to mind while examing the taste. Banana,pear,apple and pineapple added with a dash of spice.
