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 (7182) - 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 (945) - 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 (6354) - 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 (3528) - 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.

BVery (6974) - Burnsville, Minnesota, USA - MAR 16, 2009
UPDATED: JAN 1, 2014 TAP: golden pour, good lacing. Fruity, spicy nose, complex flavor of fruit, banana, cherry, spice. Very nice tripel.

LarvalChemist (29) - Lexington, Kentucky, USA - MAR 8, 2009
Poured golden and clear with a white head. Had a clean and crisp aroma. The sip starts simple and clean and then opens up like a flower to reveal a surprisingly complex brew. Obvious fruit notes with cherry dominating. Perhaps hints of chocolate strewn about. Very light in body and very drinkable.

   AROMA 5/10   APPEARANCE 5/5   TASTE 4/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 10/20
Rciesla (5499) - Exit 15W, New Jersey, USA - FEB 7, 2009
Draft pours a golden body with a thin lacing. Loads of alcohol latent fruity esters, gum, bananas, citrus, and apple skins. Drastically sweet malt body with a transient lemon tartness for balance. Wow overbearingly sweet. I tried to pawn this off but was to late. My notes say 2.8- i think this might even be generous.

notalush (5000) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JAN 23, 2009
Tap at Barcade - fizzy, hazy gold - lots of things about this beer tasted off - there was a spicy kick and phenolic character that seemed intentional, but aside from that, it was overly sweet, and had this odd, almost chlorine-like flavor to it - slight tartness and acidic apple qualities - pretty darn bad.

puzzl (3254) - New York, New York, USA - JAN 23, 2009
Tap at Barcade. Very, very estery aroma, tons of bubble gum, sweet banana, phenols. Flavor is cloyingly sweet in the finish, with some spice and cinnamon and yeast accents up front. Hardly Belgian tasting at all, so overwhelmingly sweet, near undrinkable. Probably the worst Tripel I’ve ever had.
