sudomorph (707) - Barrie, Ontario, - JUL 10, 2013
341ml bottle in a Trappist glass. Pours a hazy golden colour with a thin film of a head. Smell has big Citra hops. Hints of yeast, pine, citrus fruits, and spice. Taste is bitter with a touch of sweet . Pine, floral, citrus, alcohol. Medium body. Low carbonation. Finish is long. Bitter/sweet with some alcohol warmth. An interesting brew. A bit too many hops for me when I think of a tripel. Still worth a try!

vyvvy (4131) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - DEC 15, 2014
Pours murky copper / orange with an off-white head. The aroma has tropical / tangerine hoppiness, light banana, rich malt, abbey yeast smoothness and a bit of bread. It has a full slick body with lots of soft carbonation. The flavor begins with lots of tangerine hoppiness, other fruity aspects, malt seems quite rich, but the hops hide that aspect pretty well and there is some pine and spice notes. The finish has smooth citrus, alcohol heat and some wintergreen.

BOTTLE. Cloudy orange with a solid white head. Honey and lemon on the nose. Got sweet honey up front with a lemon, orange & citrus hit at the back end. Got a wheat beer vibe, but very nice/heavy. Sourced Cellarbrations Capel

manuelMTL (155) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 12, 2014
From 341 ml bottle in tulip. Pours a murky yellow-orange with medium white head. Lots of tropical fruits in the nose. Mango, passion fruit, and peach. Some grassy notes too. In the mouth it’s a fight between the esther notes, the warming alcohol, and the tropical fruit flavors. A light bitterness is also perceptible. String citrus flavors accompany the passion fruit and mango notes. Good but heavy beer!

b3shine (5820) - Indiana, USA - SEP 28, 2014
Bottle to snifter (shared with the Mrs; thanks DuffMan). Looks good; a somewhat hazy dark apricot with foamy eggshell head. Smells solid; Belgian yeast and a nice Citra presence with a well-balanced malt/hop backbone that is somewhere between bittersweet and semi-sweet. Tastes like it smells with a nice, smooth mouthfeel that doesn’t drink like it’s 10%. The Citra really counterbalances what to me is an excessive sweetness in most Tripels. Dry for the style as well (which I enjoy). A pleasantly surprising example of a style that I rarely enjoy.

Draft. Hazy golden amber color. Aroma of herbal straw and lemon. Taste is herbs and hay.

Foudebiere (47) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 25, 2014
Au risque de me faire crucifier, je vais l’avouer je ne l’ai pas aimé. Je suis assez traditionaliste au point de vue de mes styles de bières. Je ne suis pas un fan des bières où l’on rajoute quelconque ingrédients pour en modifier le style. Je sais que je semble être l’un des seuls à ne pas l’aimer, mais pour moi, ce n’est pas une triple. Le houblon citra domine complètement la bière et elle ne laisse aucune place à la levure, ni au sucre. C’est amer comme une IPA, c’est même plus houblonné que la IPA que j’ai bu la veille. Je sais qu’il y a un grand public pour cette expérimentation de style, public dont je ne fais définitivement pas partie.

DocLock (8054) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 8, 2014
Bottle from State Line. Pours hazy dark straw with off-white clingy head. Nose was complex. with funky yeasty malt, hops, tropical citrus. Tasted smooth, with up front yeasty malt, then hops and tangerine and pineapple, and some peppery and floral finishing notes. This one was stellar.

varanid99 (556) - AUSTRALIA - JUL 1, 2014
Murky orange-gold with no real head, bubbling like an oddly coloured soft drink. Smells a lot better than it looks - pineapple, orange, mango, spice. Tastes even better than it smells - orange, pineapple, a little alcohol warmth but not much, slightly spicy, caramel, and good long bitterness. Fantastic beer - would love to re-rate another one to see if there is any difference in the pour

Gluepot (69) - Ontario, CANADA - JUN 18, 2014
Serious fresh grapefruit nose translates directly into the taste profile. The grapefruit/citrus Citra pop is accompanied by bready, sweet malt and alcohol warmth. The medium/high carbonation adds punch to the brew and the full body of this triple holds it all together. Another bulls eye for Dieu du Ciel
