dmschefke (568) - Macomb, Michigan, USA - AUG 12, 2009
Pours an unexpected perfectly clear gold orange with thin white head, no lacing. Aroma is suprisingly light of grain, slight malt, very slight yeast, some spices, and orange. Flavor matches too well, unfortunately and has some odd astringent alcohol taste that I just can’t get over. Huge miss for a tripel.

5000 (6241) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - NOV 20, 2011
Bottle:   Hazy straw with a slight orange hue, moderate frothy white head, spotty lacing, very subtle carbonation.   Yeasty, doughy, and bready on the nose.   Very faint citrus aspect.   Also comes across as musty.   Heavy musty/breadiness on the tongue.   Not bright like Belgian examples, but moreso that heavy bready flavor I mostly find in American versions.   Does seem a bit more musty or basement funkish than most.   A little heat and alcohol on the back, but nothing serious.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate to full... well it would appear to be a little thick anyway.   Not bad, drinkable, fairly clean, but on the heavy side without being bright.   I guess I just have this thing against most American made Tripels as being too dull, bready, and not enough floral or bright characters.   Not bad, anyhows.

Bottled. A hazy golden beer with a lazing beige head. The aroma has notes of malt and fruit. The flavor is sweet with notes of mflat and fruit, leading to a dry finish, where the fruit note lingers.

Papsoe (25088) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - FEB 23, 2011
Bottle 65 cl. Courtesy of ditmier. Pours a cloudy yellow with a white head. The nose is a little rough, some almost smoky phenols, yeast and fruit. Medium body, first your typical Tripel notes of sweet fruit and yeast and then comes some rough woody notes leaving again some phenols. The finish has some alcohol heat. Not sure what to mean about this. 230211

brokensail (10785) - Orange County, California, USA - SEP 10, 2010
A: The pour is a light golden color with a slight haze and a nice white head that dies away somewhat quickly. S: The nose is fairly yeasty, which I was a bit surprised by. A touch of funk and oak along with some fruity pear, apple, and citrus notes. T: The flavor is nicely sweet like you might expect from a tripel with a touch of dryness from the Brett and oak barrel. Apples, citrus, and mild spice provide some more of the tripel character. M: We’ll call this one medium in body with a moderate but lively carbonation. D: A pretty nice beer. The partial barrel aging and spiking of Brett really added a little something different to this one that I enjoyed.
