Rando7 (750) - Iowa, USA - MAY 6, 2012
Bottle pours clear yellow with the typical tripel big frothy white head. Aroma light fruits, citrus and acidity. Taste light fruits with Sweet Tarts, Belgian yeast and a little funkiness creeping in. Palate a little syrupy but very pleasant, nice mouth tingle and carbonation. Finish clean, very slight hops. Alcohol disguised.

Looks like a wide range of opinions on this one but I liked it, a very tasty tripel.

phaleslu (6807) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - NOV 9, 2011
750 ml bottle shared by bsuedekum- thanks, Blake! Pours a semi-cloudy yellow gold with a finger of foamy white head that settles quickly. Aroma of lemon, pear, pepper, coriander, grapes, oak, bready malts, and a little bit of funk. The funk shows up in the flavor, too, along with sweet malts, wood chips, pears, grapes, lemon, and peppery spice. Medium-bodied, with medium carbonation and a crisp, bready, funky mouthfeel. I thought this might have had a slight brett addition, though subtle. 9% ABV is totally masked in what is an easy sipper. Excellent tripel.

rudolf (2342) - Buffalo, New York, USA - OCT 6, 2011
Bottle purchased at Whole Foods Bowery. Hazy yellow with a big pillowey head. Nose is bretty lemon, banana, a little fruity urinal cake (this isn’t offensive - it just is), floral & sweet candi sugar. Flavor is sweet malt, banana, belgian yeast/floral character. There is some tartness that combines with the alcohol in the finish to almost balance the sweetness but doesn’t quite get there. If it was a little less sweet I would enjoy it a lot more, but its still very nice. Kind of a hybrid Tripel/Belgian Golden Strong/Saison.

750 thanks to Secret Santa Summer 11. Even if no brett, aroma gives off enough of a yeasty smell to make you think there’s brett. Banana. Spice. Definite sugar sweetness. Very dry. Very nice.

Clear yellow with an active and large head. Fruity, yeast, light earth, and a bit of funk in the nose. Bright fruit, sugary sweet, light yeast, a bit of earth, too. Medium dryness in the finish. Real nice beer.

Arayaga2 (1811) - portland, Oregon, USA - MAY 16, 2011
Hazy straw orange with thin white head, and lots of bubbles, Aroma is a bit of orange , wheat, and some sulfur. Taste is the same, with a sharp acidity and residual sugar into the finish. Not as carbonated as expected. $10/750
