Kronebryg (1048) - Sorgenfri, DENMARK - FEB 5, 2012
Light head, clear yellow. Fullbodied light sweet nose with lemon curd and a little gunpowder. Medium body and semilong aftertaste. a bit hollow with a lemony exit, marzepan. Quite nice an developing with some air.

Metalchopz (2282) - Cantley, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 5, 2011
Originally rated December 2005. Bought at the LCBO, part of a 4 bottle pack with one De Koninck glass. This tripel pours an amber colour with a small head, but good lace. Cinnamon is found in the aroma, with some caramel, fruit and notes of honey. The mouthfeel is lacking, thin-bodied. Even the taste is under-par for this type of beer. Some spices, but very, very smooth. Too bad, good start for this one... but lacks in the flavour department.

hawthorne00 (2429) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - AUG 22, 2011
Bottle. Rose gold with a small white head. Some floaties. Aroma of caramel, dough and oranges. Dull mouthfeel - although itís not undercarbonated. Taste is sweet with lots of caramel, some spices and flowers. Gently drying at the end. A little past best before date, but the hops are completely outgunned here.

reebtogi (4183) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 5, 2011
Poured slightly cloudy amber color with nice foamy off-white head. Smells of caramel and a little bit of yeast. Hints of sweetness and yeast with some hoppy bitterness.

Benzai (8214) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - JUL 26, 2011
A little above average tripel, probably the best beer from Brewery De Koninck, in my opinion at least. Not the best smell but nice carbo and body.

I donít like the smell of koninck. Other than that it doesnít have major flaws but i just donít really like it.

Neptunius777 (38) - AUSTRALIA - MAR 28, 2011
Bottle, poured into weizen glass. Aroma is quite bland, moderate head, creamy but dissipating. Dark brown, sunset amber hints, with numerous particles. Taste is bitter strong alcohol overtones, bitter and burnt with a sustained finish. Metallic and tinny

txspartan (966) - Wilrijk, BELGIUM - MAR 9, 2011
A tripel that doesnít really quite cut it, compared to the abbey tripels out there.

Tweeke (37) - Wageningen, NETHERLANDS - NOV 18, 2010
Strange aroma, hints of pear/apple cider, some yeast and too much alcohol. Not liking this so far. Got worse with tasting. Way too sweet, artificial pear taste. Where are the hops? Weak body, medium carbonation. Very unimpressive tripel. I had only a third of a bottle and was drinking the last sips with reluctance.

a sweetened triple. some banana and citrus. Too artificial and machinal. Nice for a double, not a triple
