Tap at The Palm Tavern. The beer pours to a very pale golden body with a stick to the glass white head. The aroma is sweet light brown sugar and a lightly spicy (yeasts) maple pecan granola. The flavor is sweet maple pecan granola, herbal/grassy hops, and light brown sugar. Sweet medium body.

TomDecapolis (4427) - Lawrence, Kansas, USA - JUN 9, 2009
Tap at CAH. Pours a lightly hazy golden with some orange notes and a small bubbly white head. Aroma of spicy Belgian yeast esters, pepper, green appple and candy sugar. Flavor of the same, getting some peach in flavor along with herbal notes.

DocLock (7703) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 4, 2009
Draft at Craft. Pours deep coppery with 1-finger off-white head. Nose is rock sugary malt, hopcitrus, peppery, spicy yeast, spruce. Tastes spicy, yeasty, very sprucey, with hopcitrus and floral notes. Arguably the spruciest beer I have ever quaffed.

fredandboboflo (1570) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 18, 2009
Bottle. This was a corn bomb to me. Odd since nobody else got that...Perhaps a revisit is in order. Flavor had stronger yeastiness, breadiness, and clove/pepper character to offset the corn than in the nose, but again, the corn was pretty overbearing for me.

LilBeerDoctor (3413) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 15, 2009
Bottle. Pours a cloudy light orange with a small white head. Aroma of yeast, corn, breadiness. Flavor of sweet fruits (apple, pear) upfront with a bready/yeasty and spicy finish. Pretty good tripel. 7/4/7/4/15 (3.7/5)

JK54B (1539) - Helsinki, FINLAND - MAY 14, 2009
A 0.33L bottle tasted at One Pint Pub. Mild nose apple. Pale golden yellow colour. Pale head. Slightly sweet.

CaptainCougar (7129) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - APR 15, 2009
Pours a transparent deep golden brass color with a large rocky pillowy white head that leaves a bunch of clumpy lacing behind as it subsides. Aroma of sweet doughy Belgian yeast and light fruity esters with a touch of clove spice. Body starts with good fullness and finely dissolved carbonation with lots of good biscuity malty sweetness and a light balance of grassy bittering hops before a semi-sweet finish. Nice complexity and drinkability and very true to style.

WISEGUY572 (1372) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 18, 2009
Sweet and simple. Lighter than a tripel and more clear. White head over a clear body.

Dedollewaitor (13677) - Odense, DENMARK - FEB 20, 2009
33cl bottle @ VinensVerden, Odense. Hazy pale yellow with a white head and lacings. Nose is yeast, hay and hops. Some herbal and yeasty notes with a dry hoppiness in the end!

Habanero (2443) - Tranbjerg, DENMARK - FEB 14, 2009
Bottle. Pours hazy, golden with a nice medium sized white head, fair lacings. Nose of yeast, citrus and with hoppy notes. Medium bodied. Fruty flavour with spices. Ends up more dry. An OK triple.
