michael-pollack (4960) - King of Prussia, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 7, 2010
Draught at TND: Lightly sweet aroma of pale malt, slight hops, and slight grass. Poured yellow/gold in color with a large, white head that diminished but lasted throughout. Clear. Bery sparkling. Excellent lacing. Flavor is medium sweet and slightly bitter. Tastes of pale malt, light Belgian yeast, and hints of hops and grass. Medium body. Tingly, then dry texture. Lively carbonation. Pale malt and slight hop finish is dry. 8.5%ABV is completely hidden throughout.

Travlr (9999) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - FEB 14, 2010
Tap at Max’s. Cloudy straw colored, small white head. Aroma of spider web. Yeasty, doughy taste, decent enough malt, but not very exciting. I agree with Tarheels86: Meh. Not sure what Meh means, but it fits.

rand (1220) - SWITZERLAND - MAY 7, 2010
Bottle 33 cl from Willems in Grobbendonk (B). Hazy blond slightly amber, ivory foam gushing, thicky sparkling. Fruity nose, sweetness of malt, hints of hops, lemon, tea, orange and spices. Taste sweet and round. The soft orange, without the zest, is dotted with discreet touches of bitterness, mostly in final, a bit flat and watery.

drpimento (2103) - La Crosse, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 7, 2010
I like this one! Poured with a giant off white foamy frothy thick fine head and lots of lace. Color is a clear amber. Aroma at first was definitely skunk and in fact that lingers, but caramel earth and spice start to show up too. Flavor has almost none of the not so good stuff and is an odd mix bitter sweet and dry. Body is very good and full, but not too and has champagne carbonation. Finish is like flavor: mostly light sweetness with a little lingering bitterness as it tapers off in medium length. Good burps. Recommend drinking without smelling.

Ughsmash (7008) - 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.
