Grima (2213) - Saarburg, Rhineland-Palatinate, GERMANY - NOV 29, 2011
Corked 750ml bottle from Mi-Orge Mi-Houblon, Arlon, Belgium!
The beer is dark amber colored, with high, long-lasting white head. Looks gorgeous! It smells hoppy, and very yeasty-malty-fruity and spicy. Starts with massive yeasty, fruity flavors (peach, berries), it has a sweet malt body, slightly alcoholic. The middle part shows slightly alcoholic, very fruity, with sweet malts in background. Goes into a yeasty-sweet, fruity finish and malty finish!

Blairgus (3571) - California, USA - MAR 30, 2011
It was a light orange/brown color and slightly hazy, though not as hazy as the Amerikaans. My first thought was that it smelled like a hefe. It has the same great body as the Americaans though it was not as fizzy. It tasted rich and malty like wet bread smells on a hot day, and it had a slight bitter finish.

MoritzF (8937) - Ottobrunn, GERMANY - MAR 21, 2011
(bottle, 75cl) Hazy, golden colour with a short and slightly off-white foamy head. Moderately sweet (cara-)malty and slightly bready aroma with a subtle fruity and slightly alcoholic touch. Sweet-bitter flavour, full bodied with a moderate carbonation. Yeasty malty and slightly bready taste with shy fruity hints and herbal hoppy accents; moderately sweet malty finish with a balancing level of bitterness and mildly spicy notes.02.III.11

Bottle, tfs Vaiz! Aroma is fruity malt and hops with an extra dose of amarillo. Flavour is sweet malt with loads of fruit and even more amarillo. Finish hands out some bitterness. Good stuff

Vaiz (4052) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - JAN 12, 2011
Bottle at home. Clear orange pour, thin white head. Aroma is sweet fruits, apple, peach and some tangerine, combines with piney and fruity hops, some grass and grapefruit. Flavor is fruity sweet malts, slightly bitter finish. Nice balance between the sweet fruity malts and the bitter fruity hops. Quite fruity tripel overall. Nice.

theSlipperyPen (248) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 3, 2010
A light amber pours with golden edges and highlights and a short, soapy white head that quick to low but lasts as lacing. The nose is has the aromas traditional to a tripel; yeast, bread, spices and light floral notes. Though, this also has a few notes of a pale ale in it, being quite citric and bitter - and a hint of resinous pine. In the mouth it’s buttery and yeasty, with the hops having a greener side than usual - but pleasantly so. There’s Belgian candied sugar and some light malts. And then there’s the alcohol. You can find it easily, which is odd for only 9.2% ABV. The mouth feel is thick with a fine carbonation. Finishes on spices, butter and an increasingly bitter or dry end. Nice but not the best from the brewery or of the style.
