snoot (286) - Anaheim, California, USA - SEP 16, 2003
Amoma is yeasty and spicy, pours a cloudy gold color. Small head, not a lot of lacing. Spicy and hoppy. Mouthfeel is very nice. Nice tripel, but there are much better ones out there.

Good Belgian ale. Citrus, spicy, and fruity flavor. Finish is crisp, clean, and dry.

jonas (5772) - Garching b. München, GERMANY - AUG 25, 2003
Fruity, spicy and yeasty/estery nose - quite typical belgian ale aroma. Light amber - heavy carbonation grows a huge rocky head. Spicy and fruity notes but also a clear ethanol burn and some fusel when exhaling. Body is quite light and the taste has been forgotten five seconds after the last sip.

larsniclas (5725) - Billdal, SWEDEN - AUG 23, 2003
Hazy golden with a lot of small bubbles. Both aroma and flavour reminds me of weissbier. Wellbalanced with a warm alcohol-feel.

rickgordon (3845) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - AUG 20, 2003
Hazy amber with a bubbly, frothy head. Weissbier comes to mind as I try to sence the aroma(which is slight spicy) and flavor of this one - but what is it more specificly? I don't know...there's a clear yeast presence along with a fruity sweetness and sourness...

MaBeer1972 (1368) - Taunton, Massachusetts, USA - AUG 17, 2003
A nice beer overall. Amber color, decent spice aroma and full-bodied flavor. Can't say I'd prefer this even over some other Belgians or some of the good American copies, but certainly worth trying once, I suppose.

ante (3374) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - AUG 11, 2003
Dark golden with some haze. Big bubbly white head. sweet and sour aroma with hints of caramel, yeast and citrus. taste is slightly tart, malty and fruity. Flowery finish.

   AROMA 5/10   APPEARANCE 3/5   TASTE 5/10   PALATE 2/5   OVERALL 10/20
Aubrey (3451) - Bellingham, Washington, USA - AUG 9, 2003
Lofty -- but quickly fading -- off-white head above a nice, hazy gold hue. Soft malts (sweet caramel) with an active carbonation. Sour, slightly tart and a little bitter. Sticky and cloying in the finish (one of its qualities I really didn't like). Overall, not bad, but this one didn't do much for me.

3.3
   AROMA 6/10   APPEARANCE 3/5   TASTE 6/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 15/20
Smacky (71) - San Clemente, California, USA - AUG 5, 2003
Orange and hazy color with a great, frothy, tight head. Bright esters and a little classic Belgian sourness in the nose, followed by bread and citrus undertones. Nice malt and toasted bread following the initial spicy, citrusy taste. A little tart on the mouth, but not unpleasant.

2.7
   AROMA 7/10   APPEARANCE 5/5   TASTE 3/10   PALATE 2/5   OVERALL 10/20
BückDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - JUL 27, 2003
Aroma is alcohol and belgian yeast esters. Hazy auburn color with explosive head and excellent lacing, appearance for a tripel doesn't get much better than this. Flavor is the downfall hear. Slightly salty and rotten. Astringant and even cloying on the palate. A drinkable belgian but not even close to good.
