KyotoLefty (6571) - Kyoto, JAPAN - DEC 19, 2010
330 ml bottle. Citrus and honey malt aroma, spicy, ok hops, grass. Golden with orange and a tall, fluffy head. Sweet, fruity flavor, bready, with honey and citrus. Quite spicy, with cinnamon and quite a lot of ginger. Spice is a bit much. Light bitterness. interesting tripel, but a bit too heavy, sweet, and spicy.

meerbier (1474) - Pijnacker, NETHERLANDS - OCT 24, 2010
Bottle@Home. Very sweet, lightly oxidized, lots of cookie dough, light bitterness. Full and thick but nasty mouth feel. Unbalanced and off-flavoured.

basspro76 (423) - New York, USA - OCT 7, 2010
Poured into a sniffer glass from the bottle. Pours a hazy hay orange body. Aromas of yeast, malt, little bit of spice, little bit of fruit. Flavor is a nice dry fruit and yeast flavor up front that fades into a barely noticable hop finish.

bhensonb (11260) - Woodland, California, USA - SEP 25, 2010
Bottle from Monument in Concord, CA. Pours hazy gold with a foamy 4 finger off-white head. Strong spice aroma. More veg than pepper. Suggestions of kandi. Medium body with very foamy carbonation. Flavor is light malt with a strong spice/pepper flavor. Smells veg, tastes pepper. There’s a lingering sweetness throughout. Lightly so. Finishes pretty balanced. Sugar and pepper to be crude. There’s a lot going on in this one.

Ughsmash (7158) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 29, 2010
Bottled. Poured near-clear, lighter golden with a well-retained, stark white head.. fine lacing followed it down. The aroma picked up warm medium-skinned fruit, crusty French bread, and a pinch of honey accented by white pepper and dried floral notes.. well-balanced and intriguing. The flavor found more of the honey at the core, retaining some of the fruits.. rather tacky on the edges with more fruit, dry peppery notes, and more floral stuff.. a measure of warmth stuck on the finish, accenting a muddled blend of fruits and spices.. really tangy by the end. Medium-bodied on the palate, and the carbonation level really filled up the mouth.. sharper and not all that pleasant at the back. This was a solid but unremarkable tripel.

blipp (6148) - Newark, New Jersey, USA - AUG 28, 2010
Bottle. Pours gold with a fluffy white head. Floral and sweet aroma with some pale malty notes. The flavor has some nice fruity and floral notes with a light spiciness. Decent.
