thedm (4924) - Fort Wayne, USA - JUN 26, 2008
This bottled brew was marked BBF 07/05/09 from Indianapolis, IN. It poured a large sized foamy head of mostly lasting white colored bubbles that left behind a transparent yellow colored typically carbonated body. The aroma was malty mild and had a citrus note to it. The mouth feel was crisp tingly and mildly vinous from start to finish. The flavor was slightly strange with malt hop sweet notes.

bu11zeye (11933) - Frisco (Dallas), Texas, USA - JUN 25, 2008
(Bottle, BB 19.11.07, courtesy of Swalden_28) Pours a clear yellow body with a small white head. Aroma of apple, cheap chardonnay, sorghum, band-aid, and plastic. Flavor starts with quick shot of sour lemon and then settles to earthy yeast and some candi sugar with a dry, somewhat metallic finish. Very unbalanced.

hotstuff (4058) - Indiana, USA - JUN 21, 2008
Bottle with a best before date of 07/05/09. Large frothy, very fizzy white head, splotchy lacing, fast rising carbonation, transparent, and a yellow hue. The aroma was alcohol, fruity, malt, and some perfume notes. The flavor was sweet, alcohol, fruity, and acidic. Medium bodied. I did not enjoy this beer whatsoever as the flavor was outright weird and funky and this entire beer just did not come together for me at all. Next!!

kiefdog (1826) - Tampa, Florida, USA - JUN 18, 2008
50cl bottle from Willow Bend Liquors (Tampa, FL). Pours a cloudy dark golden color with a very thin white head. Smells of spoiled fruit, but not offensive, with notes of sweet maltiness as well. Flavor is slightly sour with a mildly sweet finish. Notes of fresh fruit are present as well. Lively carbonation.

travita (3845) - Frisco, Texas, USA - JUN 10, 2008
Light orange color with a light head. White wine in the smell and also in the taste. Grainy, yeast, sweet, fruits, sour apples. Very dry.

biz82 (1328) - austin, Texas, USA - JUN 5, 2008
Clear gold, little head. Fruity peach and apple aroma. Tangy and sharp with citrus a little astringency and some noticeable bitterness in the finish. These Greens beers share a tartness, thin body, lack of malt or hop flavor and make it hard to rate them particularly since the bottles claim beer styles. That said, none have been horrible, though this is my least favorite so far.

SphinxTX (2876) - Mata Gorda, Texas, USA - JUN 3, 2008
Bottle, from Kegs & Barrels, McKinney, TX. Poured a hazy gold with white fizzy head. Aroma is citris, of what knd, Iím not sure. Flavor is more like a white wine with a slight lemon tang to it and dry. Has high carbination (Thank God) and a light-medium body. Compared from what I have tried of beers made of similar ingredients, this wasnít half bad. Still, not something I would rush t the store for unless I was Vegan and allergic to gluton.......or wheat and barley were no longer available....

StefanSD (2072) - Lakeside, California, USA - MAY 1, 2008
Bottle from Henryís market in Santee. Not gonnaí waste a lot of words on this--Diacetyl on the nose, sharp lemon citrus, vinegar and cayenne in the flavor, watery mouthfeel, short harsh lemony finish. A $5 drainpour. Avoid.

mgermani (1000) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 14, 2008
Pours a lovely golden yellow with a great head & lacing. Aroma of faint apples - nothing malty or hoppy going on here. Tastes like poorly-made apple cider. Not the slightest bit reminiscent of an abbey tripel. Overcarbonated. Yuck.

nearbeer (3590) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - APR 13, 2008
500 ml, bb not stamped. Hazy, golden with a medium head that settles into a sticky, lasting half-inch and leaves bubbly frosting all over the glass. Aroma is apple cider, cherry cough drops, and white wine. Flavor is amazingly similar, with lambic yeast tart cherry flavors dominating. Not a bad brew if you consider it a lambic or cider, but very unexpected flavor for a tripel! My low ratings are in comparing this to other tripels; if you desire a barley or wheat free beer this is not a bad choice. Light body is astringent and dry.
