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 (8012) - NUNEATON, 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 (1532) - 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 (516) - 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.

bmerz (741) - Brooklyn, New York, USA - NOV 22, 2011
Something off about the bottle possibly with lots of phenols. Hazy hay with great lacing. Yeasty floral farm anise hops aroma. Bitter,dry, chalk, earth. Tastes nice at any rate.

nuplastikk (5785) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 21, 2011
On tap at Jacs. Hazy golden yellow-tan. Big steady white head. Significantly hoppier and drier than most Tripels, still has a sweet sugary backbone though. Maybe not as cloying as some examples. Very drinkable, well done.

Parket (582) - Bruges, BELGIUM - NOV 13, 2011
bottle, orange/yellow coloured with foamy and lacing white head. Smell: fruity mandarin, malty. Taste: very nice fruity, some alcohol, yeast and nice buttery. Nice one!

reebtogi (5686) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - NOV 8, 2011
330ml bottle pours a golden orange color with a huge frothy white head with lots of lacing. Aroma is light toasted malt and yeast. Taste is bitter hops with some spices with some underlying malty sweetness. Heavy body and loads of carbonation make this a great sipping beer to enjoy on a cool evening.
