Bottled. Hazy golden/orange color, big creamy white head. Aroma is barnyard,some grains, hay and mild fruits. Flavour has sweet fruityness mixed with earth and some hayishness. The finish gets quite flowery and bitter with earthyness underlying. Mild notes of alcohol are also to be found.

Fin (9668) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - JUL 1, 2007
Bottled at Ter Posterie, Ypres, Belgium 23-06-07 along with a bottle of De Dolle Dulle Teve, this had a lot to live up to as the Dulle Teve was superb. This beer poured much darker than I expected and was really teetering on the edge of being amber in colour rather than the orange golden I anticipated. Subtle in taste and really needing a few sips before its true colours started to show, nice creaminess started to come through along with malts. Not bad at all.

bu11zeye (12756) - Frisco (Dallas), Texas, USA - JUN 9, 2007
(750ml bottle) Pours a cloudy golden orange body with a large white head. Aroma of fresh orange pulp, mustiness, baked apple, and earthiness. Flavor of orange peel, lemon, floral hops, yeast, and malt.

BelgianBeerGal (3856) - Panama City, Florida, USA - FEB 27, 2007
UPDATED: OCT 5, 2008 75cL corked bottle. Agree with other ratings that this is not the most finished tripel. A good beer but I thought it definitely had earth flavors from the cork. Still recommend trying it.

Sickboy282 (1114) - San Diego, California, USA - JAN 19, 2007

sayravai (4707) - Helsinki, FINLAND - OCT 1, 2006
(Bottled, 0.75l) Murky orange color with a medium, foamy-creamy head. Very cellary, dryish and yeasty aroma with orangeish hints. Malty and yeasty, fruity, earthy and cellary, slightly ashy flavor. Some malty sweetness in the aftertaste. No signs of alcohol. Medium to full-bodied, dryish and slightly foamy-carbonated palate. Quite well balanced. A nicely thick, yeasty and creamy triple with strong cellary aromas (maybe due to the corked bottle).

TBone (16194) - Pori, FINLAND - SEP 13, 2006
Bottled, 0,75 ltr (BB 04/2007). Hazy orange color, good white creamy head. Hayish, metallic aroma with notes of barnyard, cardboard and fruits. Medium-bodied. Some sweet fruityness is mixed with iron, earth, citrus and hay. Bitterness in the finish. BB 2007 (or 2006? not sure) may indicate this being vintage from 3-4 years ago? Corked bottle may have produced some earthy notes. Not the most balanced tripel.

Papsoe (25063) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JUL 10, 2005
(Bottle 25 cl) Strongly hazed beer, greyish brown - river water appearance - actually this looks pretty disgusting (as most Decas). Fruity nose, full very malty body with a strong hop-bite in the finish. Not a bad beer but certainly not the most refined either. 200299

aspidites (1272) - manteca, California, USA - APR 18, 2005
Nice beer very amber for style. Very big nose of Hops, nuts and pepper. Clean and full mouthfeel with some breadlike notes and a bit of oil at the end. Alcohol is not well hidden with that big hop punch. The finish is big witha lingering alcohol and hop bite.
