dirkules (629) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 2, 2004
pours a peach hazy yellow with a bubbly white head. Carbonated... smells of ripe fruit and spice. Mouthfeel is sour and tart with a dry white wine/champagne hybrid finish. I am reminded of unibroue 2004, but not up to par with that. A very good trippel no doubt.

papajohn (1249) - San Diego (Mira Mesa), California, USA - OCT 30, 2004
Pours a hazy peach color with a humongus frothy white head. Aroma is yeasty with apple and maybe grape. Flavor is spicy, peppery and a hint of orange peel with a dry tart citrus finish. Not too shabby.

eleusis (70) - Denver, Colorado, USA - OCT 23, 2004
Bottle. Goldenish color. Rolls across the tongue nicely. Just a touch watery, but not bad. Alcohol completely hidden. A good, full flavored beer the I enjoyed and would do so again.

Steib (613) - Queen Creek, Arizona, USA - OCT 21, 2004
Light amber color with a big bold head. Has a semi-sweet yeasty, bread aroma. A zingy somewhat spicy flavor.. Fruits, spices, hops all balance nicley. A smooth full flavored beer.

Tessic (836) - Brantford, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 7, 2004
This Belgium ale pours a slightly cloudy yellow with a white foamy head. First sniff found citrus scents with a haze of alcohol. Slightly doughy like most of the other Belgium ales i’ve had are. Maybe a little pepper note also. First sip was slightly watery but good. Yeasty as most, with nice carbonation. The finish is pretty yeasty and so is the palate.

Crosling (1863) - Loveland, Colorado, USA - OCT 3, 2004
Bright hazy cantaloupe in color. The head is large, creamy, mostly diminishing and stays well throughout. Green apples, papaya, pizza dough, coriander, orange and pears in the nose. Very fruity with a huge yeast character. A nice smeller. Strong acidity and very soft carbonation. Very drinkable. Very nice tropical fruit flavors along with notes of other spices and apricots and wheat. Light bodied. Moderately bitter. A damn good triple.

dornoy (701) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - OCT 3, 2004
A thick long-lasting light amber head, dark gold body, slightly fruity perfumed aroma. The taste is well-balanced complex fruity-bitter, and the finish is fruity. It is very drinkable, and a nice experience.

ontario102 (794) - Boise, Idaho, USA - OCT 1, 2004
aromas of pear and perfume; light and tangy flavor; somewhat dry finish and overall unimpressive flavor; thin and effervescent palate

Shag (2584) - Chattanooga, Tennessee, USA - SEP 28, 2004
Last beer sampled on San Diego trip. An amber color with some good lacing. The flavor is fruity and spicy. My palate has been destroyed by big IPA’s all week so I cant taste much at this point. Some alcohol showing through in the aftertaste. Not bad

Pigfoot (2268) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - SEP 27, 2004
Chunky white head, cloudy amber color. Fresh aroma: soft, but spicy, fruity, citrus, peach. Big carbonation, sweet flavor, nothing out of the ordinary, though. Nice finish, stays on the tongue and dances around awhile, like a good Belgian ale should.
