SphinxTX (2876) - Mata Gorda, Texas, USA - MAR 16, 2009
UPDATED: FEB 5, 2011 Re-Rate 02/05/2011. 750 ML bottle. Pours a cloudy gold with white fizzy, soapy head. Aroma of some farm house funk, pepper and earthy hop profile. Flavor of malt, faint bubble gum, pepper, grain and small earthy & peppery hop finish. Mouth feel is medium body with high, fizzy carbonation. Overall, not bad at all...

Frank (2830) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUN 3, 2011
I had been looking forward for a chance to try this new (to me) Tripel for a couple weeks before I got a chance to get to it in my cellar so I was somewhat alarmed when it exploded unceremoniously over my countertop when I popped the cap. The beer remaining was cloudy orange golden in color and capped by a long lasting head of largish bubbles. The nose is quite spicy and bready. I am not really pulling cloves or anything specifically, just a general spicy warmth and a bit of banana-like juiciness. It is kind of nice but there is a bit of a metallic undertone that comes out more once tasted. The palate is kind of sticky and sluggish, oily and lacking the creamy carbonation that makes the best big Belgians great. Gushing aside, this is a pretty disappointing Belgian in general.

alobar (2762) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 25, 2012
Cloudy straw yellow pour with a soapy white head. Aroma of citrus fruit, bread and yeast. Tropical fruit flavor with bread, yeast, and spice. Nice beer.

keepersj12 (2679) - Sicklerville, New Jersey, USA - APR 11, 2012
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.

Defreni (2603) - Husum, DENMARK - JUN 30, 2010
Flaske: Igen pilsnergul lettere uklar øl med et flot stort skumhoved. Klassisk duft af gær og en smule krydderi for en trippel. Smagen er frisk og igen klassisk med et udmærket alkoholbid. Bestemt drikbar trippel.

superspak (2562) - 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.
