Dogbrick (7243) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JUN 29, 2009
Sample at Neil’s HSC initation. This beer is a lightly hazy golden-orange color with a medium thin ivory white head that recedes steadily. Thin rings of lacing on the glass. Lots of fruity esters in the nose, mostly lemon and banana. Notes of malt as well. Medium body with flavors of sweet fruit and malt along with some yeast. Lemony finish with a fruity aftertaste. Decent overall.

Ibrew2or3 (6521) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - MAY 25, 2009
Courtesy of kiefdog. Pours with slight haze and white head. The aroma is mildly tart followed by malt and prunes and a mild sense of black pepper. The taste is sweet, candi sugar and spicy yeastiness. It becomes a bit tart midway and slightly sour too. It ends with diminishing notes of prunes, cherries, raisins, black pepper and sugar sweetness.

Golden pour with active thin white head. Tart, sugary nose. Flavor was yeasty, sweet belgian sugar. finished slightly sweet then dried out. Not bad.

Thanks kiefdog for the share. Pours clear yellow with a white head. Nose is peppery, yeasty malt with apple, and some caramel, but mostly yeasty pepper. Flavor is malt, yeast, pepper, apple, and a twinge of sweetness. Decent tripel.

Ughsmash (7001) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - APR 27, 2009
Bottle. Poured hazy lighter golden with a short cap of beige head. The aroma was thick, sweet, and warm with honey and pale malts supporting some black peppery spicage.. rather simple, but well-presented. The flavor was warm as well with honey and pale bready sweetness at the core.. black pepper, floral notes, and alcohol warmth graced the edges.. sticky with decent character. Near syrupy on the palate with fine spicy warmth throughout.. hot, but tasty.

Hank1980 (942) - Athens, Georgia, USA - APR 13, 2009
Bottle shared. Poured a hazy gold. Aroma of spice, clove, fruit, oak. Taste is very nice, good amount of yeast with the fruit, spice, and oak. Body is light and carbonated, making this very drinkable. 11% is very well hidden. Overall, a very nice tripel.

Cletus (6329) - Connecticut, USA - MAR 25, 2009
Bottle courtesy of theisti. Pours amber with a nice but dissipating white head. Smells of caramel, citrus, ginger, spicy, yeasty. Tastes dry and peppery with some underlying fruity hints and a spicy splash on the finish.

HonkeyBra (3108) - Lemont, Illinois, USA - MAR 19, 2009
Orange hazy pour with big thick white head. Fruity, spicey nose with apricots cherries, spice, oak. One of the better aromas i’ve found in tripels. Flavor is complex and clean, never cloying. Understated fruits, bready yeast and nice spice. Enjoyable. Perhaps even a tripel carythedude might like.
