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 (3028) - 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.

Balazs (787) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - DEC 3, 2011
Bottle from Da Aldo. Golden yellow with an off-white lacing head. Candy, caramel, figs, slight tartness and hops. Medium dense body and carbonation. Sweet aftertaste with no sign of alcohol.

5000 (6298) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - NOV 20, 2011
Bottle:   Translucent golden, moderate white frothy head, little lacing, soft carbonation.   Bright bready nose, really bready, fairly musty.   Has this wheat germ or corn husk aspect to it, fairly strong.   Otherwise bready on the tongue.   Somewhat bright, not really floral.   Warming but not alcoholic.   Certainly not like any Belgian variety, more American in its heaviness.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate.   Can escape this corn husk/dust aspect, even on the finish.   Meh, needs to be more floral.   Not bad, just not all that interesting.

jkwood04 (4155) - Connecticut, USA - SEP 18, 2011
12oz bottle in a Trappist glass. Pours light copper with a thin, lacy, white head. Aroma of spicy yeast, pale and caramel malts, and light floral hops. Flavor about the same. Average texture. A decent beer, but not the best for its style.

M_Jager (106) - AUSTRALIA - AUG 17, 2011
This beer had a huge aroma to it dominated by fruit. Nice golden/orange colour and tasted great. Wouldn’t recommend it as a session beer, can taste the alcohol and finishes warm and bitter.

Damico (2680) - Royersford, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 10, 2011
The aroma is sweet with light notes of vanilla. It pours dirty blonde with a decent white head. The flavor is sweet and syrupy with the flavors of the Belgian yeast mostly. The booze is lost a bit with three years making it really smooth. Not really spicy at all though, probably lost over the three years.

EdKing (1981) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 6, 2011
Bottle. Pours bright orange, very clear, lots of bubbles. Nose is yeast, bread and oranges. Not particularly pungent. Taste is yeasty, orange, alcoholic, but lacking a bit of body and a bit of ommph in terms of flavour.

obguthr (4074) - Staunton, Virginia, USA - AUG 3, 2011
2008: Yeasty walnut with peach overtones. Cloudy orange, headless, full of floaties. Dough, yeast, and tart overripe oranges. Assumes a babyfood peach and apricot quality toward the end. The beer has potential, but something went awry in the execution. Then again, 3 years of age ma not be ideal for this one. I like the interpretation of the style, but it probably needs to be drunk fresher.

Nena (963) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JUL 5, 2011
Hazy medium orange body with a thin white head. The aroma is a bit unusual for the style in a way that is hard to describe: fruity, hints of berries, brown sugar, boozey notes reminiscent of rum. Very low on carbonation with a light, slightly viscous body. Has a bread, grain, and caramel flavor up front, burnt sugar, some citrus. Not near as fruit as it smelled, but with very strong sugary flavors. Doesn’t really feel like a tripel.
