YogiBeera (2516) - New Jersey, USA - APR 30, 2005
Nice deep orange color, small frothy head on top. Banana, yeast and earthy notes in the nose a gogo. Koriander and an intense peach taste. Nice brew but suprising by the diversity of the otherwise promising nose and actual taste.

pivo (2610) - GERMANY - APR 20, 2005
Apricot, pear, generally fruity nose with yeasty notes. Hazy gold with a low tight head. Sourish malt front - like green apples. Tart dry end. Medium body. I like this beer a lot - quirky but very good. Style-wise this falls between the cracks.

Dorqui (2119) - Brescia, ITALY - APR 3, 2005
Extremely dense and creamy foam. Optimal persistence. Yellow gold color, dense and firm. Powerful and decided alcohol, malt and sugar aroma. Sturdy and full bodied taste. Much dense and prickly. Flowery and malt notes in the end. Truly strongly and persistent.

Mklein818 (172) - Etterbeek, Virginia, BELGIUM - MAR 31, 2005
The first Belgian I had that was poured from a 750 ml bottle, at a delightful Antwerpen restaurant called the Gouden Ecu. A nice Abbey tripel--with a somewhat more monastic label than the beer’s origins would warrant. Overall, a nice beer--spicy and yeasty, not too hoppy, a little sweeter than other tripels. Almost a style unto itself.

Crockett (1023) - Southampton,Ontario, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 11, 2005
Lots of sediment left in the bottle. Pours gold and slightly hazy, with a big lasting small beaded head. Lots of lace. sweet fresh bread and yeasty aroma. Some musty fruit notes. Mild spicing. Bread crusts and stewed fruits. Plenty of carbonation. A little hit and miss. Not a great example of the style. The Grand Cru is a better beer, but goes against the grain.

heemer77 (5137) - Urbandale, Iowa, USA - MAR 7, 2005
Bottle. Poured a darker gold with a cloudy appearance. Some chunks. Sweet aroma of molasses and peaches with oranges. The taste is a slightly sour orange with some bread and hints of nutmeg. An ok tripel.

Maxamillion (103) - Glendora, California, USA - FEB 25, 2005
(Tap at Lucky Baldwins)Pours a yellowish amber with medium head. Aroma is a nice blend of fruit and spice. Mouthfeel was light. Definite taste of cirtus with a tang and slight sourness. I was actually surprised by this beer not expecting much but ended up enjoying this one. Could be a tiny bit less sour but other than that i really enjoyed it. A good beer for a warm day. Hope to have again.

Hairofthedog (419) - San Diego, California, USA - FEB 22, 2005
The nose is soury light fermented fruit and slight flowers. The flavor is the same but w/ a hint of citrus. The beer poured a cloudy golden orange w/ thick lasting head and lacing. The mouthfeel was creamy and light.

ChrisPants (317) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - FEB 21, 2005
Pours murky orange/amber with merengue-like semi-solid head. Smells of Zots candy, tastes like Tear Jerkers and wheatgrass. Champagne-bubble carbonation. A rather ugly beer, but I suspect that my specimen suffered a long and brutal life before coming to rest in the 99-cent clearance bin.

lachesis (757) - St Idesbald, BELGIUM - FEB 16, 2005
Light hazy golden beer with orangr shine and white off head. Pils malt aroma’s and touches of peache, oranges and herbal accents. Taste is lively and on the dry side. It has touches of black stonefruits, white pepper, berch-wood, dry malts some citrus fine herbs and hops.
