Alengrin (2425) - BELGIUM - OCT 22, 2014
UPDATED: NOV 10, 2014 Tasted as Toria Tripel in 2009 and as Toria Tripel US in 2010, the latter having been intended for export to the States in very limited quantities; according to Ratebeer both are the same thing, but I thought the US version was hoppier (I’ll verify with the brewer if this is true). Anyway, I’ll do this rating about that US version since I tasted it more recently than the regular. The notes I made at the time, at the Nationale Bierhappening of Zottegem, go as follows: off-white, sticky head, ochre blonde colour with somewhat greenish hue, hazy. Aroma of green apple and grapefruit, yoghurt, pepper, cider and quite some oily, grassy and citrussy hoppiness. Soft fruity taste (apple), mellow malt sweet background, spicy hoppiness coming up quickly and spreading into the back of the mouth and throat, citrussy and peppery and long lasting.

DavidWoodruff (395) - Windsor, California, USA - JAN 14, 2013
Pours with a hazy orange/gold hue. Thin white head. Aroma of citrus and candy sugar. Flavors of light brown sugar and almonds. Plenty of hop bitterness in the finish. Not at all what one expects in a tripel, but very drinkable.

thegreenrooster (3299) - St.louis, Missouri, USA - JAN 5, 2013
Pour is a cloudy yellow with a white fizzy head. Aroma is dry pils malts with some alcohol and butter. Flavor is pineapple fruityness with some bone dry malt and light hoppyness. I would not call this a triple and I think it’s listed here correctly. It’s an ok Belgian ale.

Benjii (3049) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAY 28, 2012
In bottle at the Cafe Red Rose. Pours a golden colour with a thick white head. Aroma of candy sugar, caramel, yeast and alcohol. Similar flavours with moderate carbonation and a foamy mouth-feel. Nice.

BillKismet (3360) - Seattle, Washington, USA - APR 8, 2012
Light tan body with ring of head. Light wheat fields and a touch of apple in the nose. Thinnish body, light grassiness, flat. Rather boring. The one nice attribute is that the alcohol is well masked. However, I wish this would have a bit more boldness in the malt body and yeast.

DruncanVeasey (7315) - NUNEATON, CONF N, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - FEB 17, 2012
330ml bottle, Cafe Rose Red, Brugge, 15/02/12 (51 Euro bottle of Brunch Weasel, anyone?). Clear golden with a subsiding swirl of foam. Gelatinous orange, gooseberry, pineapple and vanilla pod aroma. Soft jellied fruit, botanicals, mild hop dry out, lick of husk. Nice balanced, dryish tripel.

Scrapersnbeer (1491) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - FEB 2, 2012
Believe this matches up. Light yellow hazy color, like pulpy lemon juice. Moderate head and lace. Aroma of spice, citrus, and especially yeast. Tastes very much of champagne, especially on finish. Dry-sweet and bitter all the way. Not heavy, but it’s a handful. NOT a tripel. Imported by ’Twelve Percent,’ Brooklyn.

magdalar (513) - Zurich, SWITZERLAND - DEC 17, 2011
Bottle. Pours a hazy golden with a frothy white head. Smells of clove and roasted malt (what?) with lemon. Tastes slightly smoky and mildly bitter, with very little sweetness. Creamy texture. Medium bodied. Soft carbonation. Finishes quite dry.
