Tmoney99 (10080) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUN 11, 2008
Draft sample at Keg Fest. Poured hazy orange color with a minimal fizzy head that lasted with fair lacing. Complex spicy fruit and yeasty aroma. Medium body with a sticky texture. Medium fruity sweet flavor with a medium sweet finish of moderate duration with a small alcohol bite. This is a good beer.

Ratman197 (9034) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - APR 30, 2007
Bottle [leftover 2006 GABF judging beer] poured a clear golden yellow with a large lasting creamy white head. Aromas of pineapple, citrus, light carmel and a hint of spice. Palate was light bodied crisp but slightly syrupy. Flavors of pineapple, vanilla, light carmel and spice with a smooth lingering fruity finish.

MartinT (7523) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 30, 2008
UPDATED: JAN 18, 2009 My Bottom Line:
A prominent bready yeast character swirls around herbal hops and cracking straw in this authentic and fluffy Tripel.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A slice of foam tops the misty golden sunshine.
-The aroma is too yeasty for my tastes and borders on being vegetal.
-The spicy, herbal hop bitterness is delicate and engaging.
-Polite tropical fruitiness adds complexity.

Bottle.

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.

Ughsmash (7005) - 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.
