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.

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 (2076) - 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.

kappldav123 (5851) - GERMANY - JAN 16, 2008
The bottle looks really good, the beer in the glass also. Very fine, creamy foam. The beer is strong but very drinkable, a little bit sweet. Well done!

Poured a slightly hazy dark yellow. Fruity aroma. Taste was pretty standard for an abbey ale. More sweet and fruity than expected, however. Overall not bad.

Not as bad as one might expect it to be. Rather better than the dubbel, but not a favourite of the noble Crabapple family.

The Grimbergen is an average Abbey Blonde. The cloud-like frothy head is very unique. The beer pours with a nice golden hue and the flavors are very light, slightly fruity, and malty.

Whelk (123) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JAN 1, 2008
Bottle. Pours a slighly hazy gold with a thick white head. Aroma is candi sugar, very light hops, and fruity yeast. Grainy malt and fruity yeast flavors dominate with a little yeast funk. Very spritzy carbonation.

Maria (10214) - Thisted, DENMARK - JAN 1, 2008
The aroma has notes of yeast and the head is weak. The flavour has notes of hops and flower and a grapefruit-like acidity takes over and dominates the rest of the experience, and my taste buds went num. I know a lot of people like this one, but I’m not fond of this kind of acidity, even if I like very bitter beers.

Quack-Duck (9118) - Down South, GERMANY - DEC 29, 2007
0,75l bottle. Clear golden colour. Aroma of rotten fruit. Flavours of malt, fruit and gingerbread. Shy fruity sourness, could be due to the E300.
