Holy white head of doom batman! I poped the top and foam damn near exploded out the bottle. The color is a blonde cloudy with yeast floaties. The aroma is yeasty ans a bit spicy and gives the impression of a full bodied brew. The taste is indeed yeasty and there is a sweet spicy note. The body is more of a medium body. You can feel the alcohol a bit as you swallow. Overall not a bad brew worth a buy and a rebuy

Bontus (625) - Flanders, BELGIUM - JUN 10, 2012
Bottle @ Geroen tasting. Pours slightly hazy yellow to dark yellow. White dense head. Fragile nose, all subtle, but on sipping lots of alcohol warmth, but still a velvet slick palate. A dangerous and conservatie triple.

Pours a cloudy yellow with a foamy white head. The aroma has a lot of fruit and a bit of funk. The flavor is fruity with a bit of pepper at the back. The finish is dry. OK but nothing special.

Seems confused. This drinks much more wild and herbal like a Saison rather than with the subtle complexity of Tripel. Banana and dried herbs dominate the nose and palate.

Bottle. Bright and clear golden color, medium white head, solid lacing. Aroma of white pepper, straw, hay. Taste starts sweet, then bitter and peppery with a bit of spice. Nice.

Spicy with a bit of honied sweetness. Clear yellow with a light body. Crisp flavor, almost pilseneresque. Tried with Dave and Jess at the Bruges Bierfest in 2012.

superspak (2477) - Michigan, USA - MAR 13, 2012
11.2 ounce bottle into chalice, bottle date of 5/2011 notched. Pours hazy golden amber color with a nice 1-2 finger dense off white head with great retention that reduces to a nice cap that lingers. Spotty lacing on the glass, and plenty of carbonation streaming up retaining a nice head. Aromas of big lemon, apricot, citrus, pepper, biscuit, banana, tart grains, and yeast spices. Decent aromas with good strength and balance. Taste of lemon, biscuit, clove, citrus, grass, apricot, tart grain, pepper, candi sugar, and yeast spices. Lingering notes of pepper, biscuit, citrus, tart grain, and yeast spices on the finish for a bit. A little to grainy for my liking, but still well balanced. Medium carbonation and body; with a fairly creamy and slightly slick mouthfeel as expected for the style. Alcohol is well hidden with only a slight warming on the finish. Smooth to drink for 9%, but is still a bit of a sipper. Overall a very solid and balanced tripel. A bit too much tart grainy breadiness, but I still enjoyed it.

halfonit (1156) - Fall River, Massachusetts, USA - MAR 3, 2012
Used a tulip for this one. Pours a murky pale golden color with a super thick bubbly white head. Aroma has a citrus scent up front, there’s a slight grape hint also. In the background I can get the yeast, spice, coriander, and a little pine. It’s kind of a little bit on the weaker side though. As for the flavors involved here, I can pick out some coriander, clove, yeast, grain, grapes, dough, and barley. Leaves a yeast and coriander finish. This one is a little light, but not too bad. A good beginner tripel.
