doboy (419) - Morehead City, North Carolina, USA - NOV 12, 2012
This was OK. Poured a dark yellow, clear, nicely carbonated. Head was pretty but disappeared. Aroma was very faint. Flavor was of sweet malt and mouth feel was good. After taste was nice. An Average Tripel.

GeneralGao (3614) - Iowa City, Iowa, USA - SEP 22, 2012
Bottle. Poured a clear light orange color. The head was off white and dissipated quickly to a thin film. Smelled of pineapple, honey, pale malt, and a splash of alcohol. Medium bodied. Slightly sweet up front with delicate bitterness at the end. Subdued pineapple, graham cracker, and noble hop flavors.

Jur (296) - NETHERLANDS - AUG 29, 2012
Bottle @ BeerTemple, Amsterdam. Solid Belgian style trippel. Bit too much on the sweet side and strong taste of alcohol, pretty good.

maekchu (2097) - Hirakata, JAPAN - AUG 1, 2012
Bottle (7 oz./207ml). Vintage 2008. From a discounted 8-pack of four Flying Dog high-gravity beers. Super sweet aroma, honey and sugar. Honey color, cloudy, almost no head. Dull, flat sweetness, mid palate is more or less balanced. Goes nowhere. Mild aftertaste. Medium body. Well, it is reminiscent of a tripel.

imdownthepub (10175) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - APR 21, 2012
Bottled, aged 3.5yrs, 355ml from Beers of Europe, Norfolk. Gold with white head. Surprisingly, quite a gentle beer, smooth, honeyed sweetness, a touch of spiciness, fully developed. A pretty decent copy of an Abbey Tripel which is not easy from outside, the yeast does seem to be doing the job. Decent.

deusax (442) - Grenoble, FRANCE - APR 8, 2012
Bottled @ Just Beer Assocaiton. Bien forte comme bière, style belge, mais un peu trop aigre/amère

cleverlobo (315) - Connecticut, USA - FEB 18, 2012
Bottle; hazy orange with small pale yellow head; aroma-fruits, peaches, yeast, sweet, toffee, alcohol; taste-medium sweetness, lightly bitter, full body, sticky, average carbonation, long finish. Not sure this beer is cohesive. It’s a little hard to follow with the mouth feel being more pleasant than the swallow.

Meilby (7579) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JAN 7, 2012
Bottle 355ml @ home
Pours clear golden with a off-white head. Aroma has notes of malt, sugar and dried fruits. Taste is medium to heavy sweet and light bitter. Body is medium, texture is oily, carbonation is soft.

Marsiblursi (3001) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - JAN 6, 2012
(Bottle) Pours clear golden with a small white head. Quite still in the glass. The aroma is rather sweet with notes of honey, light marzipan, flowers, clove, sugar and mild spicy and grassy hops. Some canned fruitiness in the background. The flavour is near medium sweet and light to medium bitter with notes of yeast, dough, bread, flowers, clove, honey and light marzipan alongside some grassy and spicy hops. A subtle fruitiness of apricots in the background. The mouthfeel is clean and light syrupy with a light numbing finish. Medium bodied. Way too sterile to be a good Tripel in my book.
