Braudog (5903) - Traveling the USA, Missouri, USA - JUL 28, 2007
Bottle: Poured a nice deep golden color with a barrier wall of tiny white bubbles protecting it. The aroma is fruity and yeasty. Nice and subtle balance of flavors present themselves here ... first a bit of spice, then the yeast as it settles, and finally an almost lagery malt base comes through at the very finish. Fine beer, if a bit subdued. (#3041, 7/28/2007)

Alldaydrinker (559) - Norwood, Massachusetts, USA - JUL 27, 2007
Pours a golden colour with a medium white head. Aroma is clovey with a background of citrus and spices. Initial taste is yeasty, clove, and fruity malts. Medium Body. Palate fades well, but not long lasting. Great lacing of the glass.

Kirill (277) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - JUL 26, 2007
golden with quickly disappearing head. very smooth texture, the same hops and fruits as most tripels, but not enough alcohol to make it really good

Drink4Satan (676) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - JUL 24, 2007
Pours a dense white head that retains very well and leaves good lacing. The aroma resembles clove, spice and citrus. The yeasty flavours overwhelm this beer, but fruity and floral esters are still appearent. Also, there is a bit of lemon citrus. Slightly metallic. The carbonation was not as much of a CO2 bomb as other abbeys and the body was a bit thin. Spritzy. Not enough alcohol for a tripple. Pretty expensive stuff at $12 a six pack.

ChrisTurner (206) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - JUL 22, 2007
Bottle -- Large white head with good retetion and good lacing. Rich honey colour. Quite light aroma with citrus and spices. Medium palate with average carbonation. Flavour is a lot like a witbier with quite a bit of citrus and spice. Not a lot of alcohol warmth considering. Not at all bad but too expensive in Oz.

hepburn82 (143) - SCOTLAND - JUL 16, 2007
Quite yeasty and sweetish, floral notes, lemons and citrus, not overly phenolic, doesn’t show its strength, clean. great lacing.

bager (2121) - Copenhagen N, DENMARK - JUL 16, 2007
Bottle. Clear golden coloured with a rather large white head. Yeasty with notes of spices, fruits and carramel.

LordCorkscrew (1774) - Ronco Scrivia (GE), ITALY - JUL 16, 2007
Meno pretenziosa della Grimbergen Tripel, però allo stesso tempo molto più sbevacchiona, piace abbastanza senza però colpire troppo. Può andare bene così en passant; comprata mio padre alla Coop.

MiP (13799) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - JUL 14, 2007
UPDATED: OCT 21, 2007 Bottle, 6.7%. Slightly spicy aroma, a little cookie. Clear golden colour. Big, stable white head, very nice and creamy. Good spicy flavour, some wheatiness. A lot like a spicy wheat beer. Peppery and clean, nicely drinkable. Slightly thin mouthfeel. 6 3 7 3 15

Draught. The aroma is a bit sour. The flavour starts off yeasty, then turns grainy and sour. 5 3 5 3 10

omhper (19985) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - JUL 11, 2007
Draught at Oliver Twist, Stockholm. Clear golden, rich head. Juicy pineapple aroma. Sweet and fruity, estery and yeasty. Medium bodied with thick, spritzy mouthfeel. Light botes of grass and metal. Some late careful bitterness. Well balanced and rather enjoyable, although not the most complex Belgian beer around.
