dhlesq (233) - Thousand Oaks, California, USA - APR 2, 2004
Aroma starts out yeasty but opens up into a nice light citrus/clove scent. Appearance is yellow-orange with a tight frothy head that dissipates at a moderate rate. Spicy clove flavor that gives way to tangy fruit and finishes with noticeably flowery hops. Sweet malt flavor begins to come through only after allowing the head to subside. Overly carbonated at the start, but palate is very nice once the carbonation comes out a bit. Overall a very nice, and very drinkable, tripel.

Cloudy orange and gold with a big head that is gone in a flash. Aromas are spicy hops and apple. Flavours are apples, sour pears and spices. Has a light foamy mouthfeel. A Sweet and light beer.

Cloves, estery banana aroma. Some spices also, nutmeg. Good appearance, hazy, apple cider-like color. Moderate to low carbonation. Slow diminishing head. Crisp. Good with fruit, like apples.

5000 (6300) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - MAR 11, 2004
Bottle pours light orange with a large foamy head.   Good carbonation, slick lacing.   A nice lemony & yeasty aroma greets you at the nose.   Definately smells the part.   Tastes of yeast and citrus up front, fading into a somewhat malty finish.   A bit of a musty aftertaste, and slightly sour.   This seems fairly tame for an Abbey Tripel.   Decent mouthfeel, but not enough flavor on the finish.

Dorwart (2425) - Robbinsville, New Jersey, USA - MAR 10, 2004
Thin head of big bubbles. Not typical of a belgian. Good carbonation though. Spicey and dusty aroma with a hint of oranges. Color is a cloudy golden orange. Flavor is slightly flat and sour. Citrus fruit and spices are present. Only a hint of alcohol. Light in body. Finish is good. Slightly bitter and a little sweetness. An ok "lighter" belgian triple.

jde123 (766) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - MAR 6, 2004
This beer pours a beautiful orange with a frothy head that dissipates quite rapidly. Very faint aroma, not sure if I am smelling the beer or something else, but from what I can make out, smells of citrus and yeast. On first drink it was slightly acidic but blossomed into a silky coating of the tongue, nice. Decent taste, slightly bitter finish but still pleasant. I would buy this again.

rauchbier (3652) - Isle Of Beer, Lincolnshire, ENGLAND - FEB 29, 2004
Bottle conditioned. Gold, vast fluffy white long lasting head and good condition. Faintly melon and honey in the nose with some background hoppiness. Spicy honey, grain and a hint of apple but quite smooth in the mouth, finishes sweetly with malt and yeast most apparent. Back label states "Moederbier Augustijn" (mother beer Augustijn) but whether this means it is the same beer or a tweaking of the recipe only a side by side tasting will tell.
Earlier Rating: 1/20/2003 Total Score: 3.6
Bottle Conditioned. Honey gold colour, good thick head and slight overcarbonation. Apple aromas and grain, some spiciness in the mouth and a smooth malty finish.
