Sammy (8679) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 15, 2013
very fine drinking triple, bottle at Bar Volo. Big lasting off-white head on peach body. Taste better than aroma, with orange hop flavour and fine yeast craftmsnhip. Good drink ability.

NikkTwist (1648) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 15, 2013
Draft at Monks. Poured a very yellow gold with a very large frothy head. Glossy lace. Strong dry honey floral aroma. Tastes less interesting than expected. Watery gunpowder green tea with some light amber fruits. Sage. Thyme. Some light cinnamon spice. Pine needles. Bit more bite after the swallow than before. Flavors are fine, just out of balance.

Vignale (2069) - Malmö, SWEDEN - AUG 14, 2013
Flaska från biersgourmet.be Ornage, lätt disig vitt småbubligt skum. Söt doft med gula plommon, jäst, alkohol, honung, kryddor. Kraftig, söt och besk trippel. Rejäl pommeransbesk balanserar sötman väl, bröstkaramellkryddig. Minnesvärd.

snoworsummer (2167) - baltimore, Maryland, USA - AUG 4, 2013
Draft. Pours clear gold with a frothy white head and some lacing. Tastes sweet, like sugar and caramel. Light body and low carbonation. Smells fermented, slightly sour, like grapes and sugary fruit.

Holmen1 (2509) - Stavanger, NORWAY - JUL 27, 2013
Flaske på Poechenellekelder en vakker og varm sommerdag, etter en Oude Boon Mariage Parfait: den hyggelige kelnerinnen gratulerte meg med et godt valg, men sa at egentlig skal man ha en til hvert ben. Jeg var fornøyd med denne ene, som var meget smakfull uten den sødmen som ofte preger tripel. Fin krydret bitterhet. Stor smaksrikdom og laang ettersmak.

Scrapersnbeer (1486) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - JUL 23, 2013
Candied tropical fruit aroma, not coming off as the most bitter tripel. Opaque yellow color, like on a traffic signal. Taste is indeed more bitter than sweet, although sweet in the vein of the style nonetheless. Slick texture with just a minor bite. No Dutchman were harmed in the making, but my wallet was in the buying.

TheEpeeist (3364) - Media, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 21, 2013
11.2 oz bottle. Misty orange brown with a white head. Nose is peach, apricot and bubblegum; quite sweet. Sticky and syrupy with a buzz. Taste is yeast, bitter citrus peel, plastic and dried apricot. Lingering grass and black pepper.

podey (637) - New York, New York, USA - JUL 19, 2013
330ml bottle at BXL East. Pours hazy golden blonde with a thick, fluffy, foamy white head. Aromas of perfumey flowers, yeast, citrus and grass. Taste has alot of sweet fruitiness in the forefront, but the finish is fairly bitter, floral and grassy. A bit of alcohol also comes through in the finish.
