(draught at brewpub) cloudy deep orange-yellow with spare bubbles. Nose of banana, bubblegum and other fruit esters. Taste of banana, doughy bread, and other fruit esters. Light mouthfeel that’s lightly carbonated.

Jokes (1453) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - NOV 27, 2006
Opaque, hazy gold with a tighly packed layer of tight bubbles on top. A sweet and spicy nose of lovely citrus and yeast. Lemon, cloves, fresh dough, wheat, vanilla, corriander and light banana. The body is thick and full, due to what appears to be loads of suspended yeast. The carbonation is nice, but can’t quite cut the weight. The flavor is pretty nice. Sweet, some fairly pronounced, but not overpowering, spice and a bit alcohol. The finish is long and warm, but definitely satisfying. Not my favorite from Brugge, but a treat to try and something I would drink again.

opaque orange, frothy beige head, heavy lace, light fruity spicy aroma with hints of citrus, creamy body, balanced malt flavor with a sweet fruityness that’s well balanced with the spicy citrus character, the sweetness picks up a candy quality as it warms and becomes a spiced candy

BBB63 (6037) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - JUL 27, 2008
Indiana Microbrewers Festival: Golden hue with a small frothy head. The aroma is a bit funky and acidic, some pepper, cardamom, ginger, apricot, grassy esters along with bready malts and a hint of Belgian sugar. The taste is twangy and fruity with an aggressive boozy nature. The finish is yeasty and spicy. Mouth feel is sharp and highly warming (then again I just noticed that is 11% ABV so I guess that makes sense now). Sort of weird almost hybrid beer but it does grow on you after awhile.

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.

hotstuff (4092) - Indiana, USA - OCT 10, 2009
Draft. Very small white head with a short retention span, hazy body with no visible carbonation, no lacing and a straw yellow hue. The aroma was sweet, fruity, bready malt, sugary, and some pepper notes. The flavor was sweet, fruity, the ABV definitely came through, spicy, malty, and yeasty. The mouthfeel was tingly and a medium bodied beer. Refreshing and worthy of a try.

beerbuzzmontreal (3490) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 19, 2010
Cloudy golden pour with a thin white head. Aroma of yeast and honey. Good flavor of yeast, honey and hops. The body is light to medium with a creamy texture and moderate carbonation. Not a great example of the tripel style, but a definitely enjoyable one.

Tap at Chumley’s Lafayette. Pours mostly clear, slight haze golden with minimal off white head. Nose is belgian yeast and slight lambic (oddly). Flavor is belgian yeast, slight clove/cinnamon/nutmeg, moderate carbonation, well balanced and citrusy as well. Not bad.
