joekfsu (138) - Boardman, Ohio, USA - JAN 31, 2008
11.2 oz bottle. Pours clear gold with 2 cm foamy off white head that is slowly diminishing. Aromas of orange, spice and yeast are balanced. Initial flavor is mostly citrus. Dry and slightly bitter aftertaste that is moderately lasting. Good lacing, light carbonation, light to medium body, and light hints of alcohol. Drinkable but better available options exist.

yespr (35101) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - JAN 31, 2008
33 cL bottle. Pours clear golden yellow to orange with a huge slight off-white and collapsing head. Malt and yeasty spiced aroma. Classic belgian yeast flavour, light citrus fruity and spiced. In addition a malt note and a decent bitterness is available, almost pilsner like. Ends nicely bitter and dry.

Tripplebrew (778) - Saint Paul, Minnesota, USA - JAN 30, 2008
Pours a clear, golden-honey with a thick layer of white head. Aroma is of of yeast, fruit and biscuity undertones. Taste is a little bit of fruit and yeast with that same biscuit flavor to offset the tart fruit flavors. It’s a decent blonde but not at the top of my list.

scotty (1088) - SCOTLAND - JAN 27, 2008
This is pretty good, clean golden colour, with a good white head. Quite sweet but nicely balanced, has a good long finish. The highish alcohol has the desired affect but isn’t overpowering. Your local Tesco should have this.

davidpl (435) - Santiago, CHILE - JAN 26, 2008
Appearance: golden to orange color. Medium head, white, lasting and adherent to glass. Aroma: malts smells and wheat’ reminiscences. Citric touches similar to oranges and pineapple’s aromas. Yeast; citric and herbal hoppy. Flavor: persistent pale malts and some wheat’ reminiscences. Citric-sweet fruitiness like tangerines, papayas and pineapples in syrup. Sugar and slight homey note. Low hoppy taste with light metallic touch. Palate: medium body and semi-oily texture. Light to medium carbonation. Slightly unbalanced, the final alcoholic degree make up the start sweetness. Nice fruity touch.

thewolf (11495) - Kolding, DENMARK - JAN 26, 2008
Bottle, bought @ SuperBrugsen, Billund. Pours a very pale golden with a slight haze in the centre. A smallish bubbly white head on top with some lacing. Aroma is sweetish with som yeast, biscuit and light fruity tartness. Rather nice mouthfeel with medium carbonation. Flavour is light metallic, some exotic fruits and a nice zesty tartness. A touch of bitterness. An okay tripel, but there are so many better ones...

Stefano (1900) - Thisted, DENMARK - JAN 24, 2008
UPDATED: DEC 17, 2014 Dark golden colour with an average, creamy white head, mostly lasting and with good lacing. The aroma is malty with light notes of toasted grain. Flavor has alcohol, candi-sugar, hops and fruits. The finish has some sweetness and some bitterness.

MagooinPA (100) - Warminster, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 19, 2008
Bottle poured into proper glass. Nice fluffy white head and crystal clear. Laces the whole way too. Nice yellow/straw color. This beer had a nice nose of spicy hop nose to it. Mouth feel was somewhat thin though. Not every tripel can be Chimay though. Malt was noticeable and and all in all, a nice session beer. You can’t say that about most tripels since they tend to knock you on your butt.

milljam (682) - Norman, Oklahoma, USA - JAN 18, 2008
Interesting beer....slight fruit/citrus on the nose, followed by the same in the palate, but also with some subtle hops. Finish is crisp and clean. A bit weak to be a Trippel, but decent none the less.

shadey (1996) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - JAN 16, 2008
Small bottle picked up at BOTW and consumed right away. Pour is crystal clear pale orange. Head consists of a thin sparse layer of white with spotty clusters of more dense white froth. Aroma is slightly sweet and fruity. If I pick up any hops, they are light, and a touch peppery. The flavor is light, well balanced sweetness and a faint cleansing hops. A light and refreshing Belgian. Tasty.
