Guerde (1228) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - FEB 24, 2010
(bottle shared by JK) Pours gold with a medium white head which retains and leaves some lacing. Aromas of bananas foster, candi sugar, pale malts, and a touch of bready yeast. No real oxidation here even though the bottle is a couple of years old. The taste, however, is classic aged triple with some stale hops, banana, candi sugar, and the bready yeast, but it finishes very dry with an off flavor I can’t quite put my finger on. Mouthfeel is medium with spritzy carbonation. A really solid tripel, and would’ve been great if not for that unpleasantness in the finish.

330 ml bottle. Hazy golden body with a thin, collapsing head. Aroma is mild fruity with notes of honey and spices. Flavor is sweet, spicy and a hint of honey in the finish. Quite straightforward tripel

2007 bottle, pours hazy golden with white head. Aroma is banana, candi sugar, kind of buttery. Taste up front is the sweet banana and esters moving into a sweet finish from the sugar. Fairly good tripel.

5000 (6500) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - DEC 19, 2009
Bottle:   Pale golden, slightly hazy, moderate to large frothy white head, spotty lacing.   Pale bready nose, faint floralness, slightly danke.   Semi-sweet soft breadiness on the tongue.   Feels like a cross between a Belgian example and an American.   Not very bubley, a little flat in fact.   Not bright, but not dull.   Middle of the road.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate to full.   Little bit of pale fruitiness on the finish.   Not bad, a little simple, but at least its fairly clean.

drpimento (2532) - La Crosse, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 29, 2009
Yummm! Nice beer! Poured with a big, off-white, foamy head and a little lace. Color is an almost perfectly clear amber. Aroma is yeasty, dry, champagne, a little hop and a little malt. Flavor is not huge, more subtle, but quite pleasing - again yeasty, with a dry - sweet - dry action that is intriguing. Great body and excellent carbonation. Finish is very good with only a little alcohol showing a time after the swallow. Could be a session beer if you went easy.
