fonefan (34222) - VestJylland, DENMARK - AUG 14, 2006
Bottle. Golden colour with a lasting white head. Aroma of alcohol, spice, lemon and some yeast. Flavour of spice and malt that ends in a warm alcoholic finish.

yespr (30689) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - FEB 22, 2008
33 cL bottle. Pours hazy yellow with a light orange look and a collapsing white head. Very dry brett aroma. Flavour is light lemon/citrus flavoured - fresh and sweet. Sweet light caramel malt and light hoppy with a mellow Belgian yeast note into the finish. Nice.

Ungstrup (29081) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - NOV 10, 2003
The aroma is very sweet with notes of spices, lemon, oranges, and yeast. The color is a hazy orange and it has a beutiful huge though collapsing white head. The flavor is dominated by sweetness combined with a mixture of spices, I think corriander is one, a quite nice combination of sweetness and spicyness. In the middle the alcohol runs prickling over the tongue. In the end the spicyness turns woody dry with a slight hoppyness to it. The mouthfeel is a little thin in the beginning, but when the alcohol kicks in it is great. A quite nice beer - one of the better Triples on my tastebuds.

Papsoe (25090) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JUN 4, 2005
(Bottle 33 cl) Beautifully, hazy amber with a huge, pretty head. Extremely full-bodied with a potent alcohol-burn. Some vague spices, but the yeast adds most of the flavour. A solid but not very refined brew. 240197

joergen (20493) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - OCT 13, 2006
Bottle. Hazy yellow coloured with a huge white ehad. Aroma of fruits, yeast and spices. Flavour of fruits, yeats, spices, marzipan and alcohol. Disappointing.

oh6gdx (20217) - Vasa, FINLAND - APR 27, 2006
Draught. A bit hazy yellow/golden colour with small, but longlasting white head. Aroma is strong citrus with hints of spices and yeast. Very sweet citrus (blood orange meets lemon and lime) flavour with some malty hints. Lots of fruit in aftertaste.

omhper (19192) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - MAY 26, 2003
Bottled. Golden coloured and very lively with rich head. Strong aroma of dried fruit and good, dry cider. Sweet and malty with clean, hard malt profile. The finish is drier and rounded, still fruity, and with grassy bitterness.

madmitch76 (14312) - , Essex, ENGLAND - NOV 13, 2009
18th May 2008. Crisp fizzy beer with a champagne like snap and dryness. It’s clean with a nice mild brandyish malt in the mid and the finish.

fiulijn (14294) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 16, 2003
Blond color; incredibly giant and creamy head. Malty and spicy aroma, dry (the classic coriander). Good body structure, not too much sweet not bitter; a light sour note and wood touch, peculiar in a Triple..
