Ferris (12429) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 29, 2012
Bottle - Bready, red fruits, malts and alcohol on the nose. Cloudy dark orange with a foamy head. Sweet yeast with a bit of alcohol, no real burn or bitterness. A little too sweet for my taste.

DuffMan (9500) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 22, 2012
Bottle. Murky deep orange amber with a colossal chunky head that retains beautifully. Aroma is sweet and fruity, lots of ripe peaches, soft yeast. Sticky sweet fruity flavours, peaches and melons and pears, with a faint earthy quality that hints at smokiness even, but not quite. Really cool! Despite the sweetness, it never becomes cloying. Not a classic tripel, but that’s probably why I liked it!

fugitive (1895) - Athens, GREECE - AUG 17, 2012
Bottle. Color dark orange with big head. Aroma sweet, malt, caramel, orange, fruity. Taste sweet, caramel, fruity. Too sweet.

presario (4903) - Stampede City, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 6, 2012
Bottle. Had to let set for a few days to clear as there is a lot of fine yeast sediment in the bottle. Super carbonated. Pours half dark amber and half head. Belgian yeast aroma with some alcohol and perhaps some sugar note. Big alcohol and sharp initial taste. Can feel the carbonation and taste some baking soda, hops and alcohol note. Not a subtle beer. Sweet.

reebtogi (5594) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 3, 2012
330ml bottle bottled on 02/02/12 pours a hazy orange amber color with a massive off-white rocky head that leaves some thick spotted lacing on the glass. Aroma is grainy with some light fruits and earthy notes. Taste is caramel malty sweetness with some light pitted fruits and an earthy hop bitterness. Medium bodied with abundant carbonation leaving a pleasant sensation on the palate. Quite a bit different than many of the tripels I have sampled and is very tasty and highly recommended.

mile (3787) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JUL 29, 2012
Bottle. Light amber, hazy, small to average and mostly diminishing head. Moderate, malty - lightly wheaty and sweet aroma, some caramel and fruitiness, light spiciness (coriander), light hoppyness and some alcohol. Body is medium, malty - lightly wheaty and sweet flavor, caramel and some fruitiness, light spiciness and alcohol. Finish is average, malty - lightly wheaty and sweetish, some caramel and light spiciness, some alcohol. Sugary sweet tripel with caramel (despite of spiciness and alcohol) - that’s it.

Beershine (5219) - The Sunshine State, Florida, USA - JUL 27, 2012
Bottle from Stefe Piwa. On train to L’viv. Has been agitated so not looking so nice, but has decent head. Aroma is poignantly yeasty, sweet, and fruity. Peaches and ripe pears, and a ripe mango. The flavors follow. There is a lot of tropical fruit, a decent hopping with just a smack of bitterness in the finish, and it feels strong. Solid malt character. A bit sweet and yeasty but its still pleasant, and not cloying, and the bottle agitation might be making it yeastier than its supposed to be. But it is a strange tripel.

Hermod (6332) - Vantaa, FINLAND - JUN 26, 2012
33cl bottle, bottled 02/02/2012. Label says 9,2%. Poured hazy, dark orange with a frothy, everlasting dirty white head. Aroma has oranges, yeast, spices, malt. Flavor is, heavy spicy with sweet fruitiness, oranges and lemon. Very dry finish. Alcohol very well hidden. Great brew.

madmitch76 (21796) - , Essex, ENGLAND - JUN 17, 2012
23rd April 2010
Cloudy orange beer, little white head. Light aromatic nose. Light soft palate, slightly dry. Sweet malt - typically tripel. Light and fluffy. Sweet orange with lightly spiced malt. A dry soft finish with a trace of lemon. A superior tripel. Amusing to see both the Dutch and the Americans doing better tripels than the Belgians. Come on guys!

teddybeer (3359) - Madrid, SPAIN - JUN 16, 2012
33cl bottle. Murky amber colour with a large head (high carbonation), white, perfect lasting and nice lacing. Aroma is sweet, caramelish and alcoholic. Flavour is sweet, yeasty, fruity notes, buttery. The final is slighty bittery with a decet persistence, also sweet that gives it a good balanced. Carbonation is medium. Body is soft.
