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.

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!

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.

Although the color was pale, and flat looking in the glass, the big flavor really caught me quite offguard. I did notice the citrus smell up front, but the full-body of this beer is quite remarkable. A really tasty beer. Notably the finish is a little weak, but no more then I have come to expect from this style of beer. No doubt, this would be a nice summer beer and a big session beer. Probably a great keg beer that could be slammed all night long with buddies. Cheers.

Gr0ve (2174) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAR 30, 2007
330 ml bottle. Amber colour, crystal clear, and with lots of bubbles rising to the surface. Medium-sized consistent, but coarse white head. Rich lemony and apricoty aroma. Sweet notes, but still refreshing because of the fruit. Light flavours. High carbonation level makes this a refreshing and lively beer. Finishes with a light resiny flavour.

Strong but fresh hoppy aroma. Hazy golden colour. Fresh, lemony sharp flavour. Smooth clean texture.
