Fin (8106) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - MAY 2, 2007
Picked this up in Sainburys? (I think) a while back and good to try after the Dubbel. Good solid golden colour with a huge white fluffy head, yeasty aroma. Tasted very good with nice fruit, yeastyness and a lovely warming effect from the alcohol as this started to warm up.

almopina (87) - Madrid, SPAIN - APR 25, 2007
Golden orangish color with a thin white head. Grass, yeasts and lemon on the nose. Intense yeast flavor with a nice fruity aftertaste (lemon). Alcohol esthers warm up the mouth perfectly but alcohol is not noticed in any other aspect of the beer, and it has a lot (6.7%). Good blonde beer.

mvcramer (243) - Lexington, Massachusetts, USA - APR 21, 2007
Wonderful yeast aroma. Strong frothy head. Appropriate golden color. Sweetness of malt flavor was delectable, but I got a bit of an astringent finish. May have been the age of the beer - imports can be tough sometimes with freshness.

tykjen (182) - Florø, NORWAY - APR 21, 2007
I think it more a blond ale than a tripel, but it is absolutely drinkable. Not too fruity nose, but with som apple, plum , apricot and phelolics. Light body, medium CO2 for a belgian ale. Crystal clear without sediment. A shame!

reakt (949) - Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 15, 2007
UPDATED: SEP 1, 2007 bottle @ bierodrome, kingsway. Pale golden with thin white head. Spicy nose of caramel, yeast (or refried beans) and oranges. Taste is light and crisp - vanilla, stewed lemons, spice, orange and light fruits. Easy to drink and very nice with my meal.
