750 ml. Bottle both capped and corked. Shared with my exquisite self as number 600. Pours a medium white long lasting creamy head, with Belgian lacing, over a slightly cloudy, golden (SRM 7) body.....nose of pineapple,pear, apple, cereal....taste sweet to start, then pineapple, with citrus (lemon, lime) arriving, spice, (clove. allspice) following and then a tart slightly bitter finish, rather sweet throughout.....mouth feel is light to medium, carbonation low to medium. The alcohol is well hidden (unless one swallows). Not as spicy as the best, somewhat sweet, but still a nice Tripel.

Slightly cloudy orange yellow pour. Smell is slightly sweet and spiced. Taste is lightly tart, a touch sweet, and hoppy with nice bitterness. Bittersweet yet dry. Nice for a style I usually strongly dislike.

Hank1980 (942) - Athens, Georgia, USA - JUN 21, 2009
Bottle. Poured cloudy gold with a decent sized white bubbly head. Aroma of lots of fruit, apple, citrus, pear, spices, yeast. Almost like a champagne. Taste is similar with lots of fruit, yeast, and spice. Mouth is very light and heavily carbonated, dry. Overall, a nice tripel that has many champagne characteristics.

Bottle 5000. Pours cloudy gold, with a white head. Aroma is fruit, spices, and malt. Flavor is fruit, sugar, yeast, malt, and a little alcohol. This one is different, but I’m enjoying it a lot.

Tap at CAH. Pours a lightly hazy golden with a medium bubbly white head. Aroma of green apple, tripel yeast esters an bready malt and lemon. Flavor of the same. Not dry enough.

750 ml capped and corked green bottle poured a hazy golden amber with a small lingering white head. Aromas of yeast, pear, spice and pepper. Palate was medium bodied and smooth with a warming finish. Flavors of carmel, yeast, pear and light spice with a smooth warming lingering sweet fruity finish.

nbutler11 (1267) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - MAR 26, 2009
Bottle brought back from WA. Awesome label. Pours a cidery yellow color with a trim white head. Loaded with yeast and overripe apples and oranges in the aroma. Tastes similar with a large amount of candied sugar for balance. Very approachable for a tripel, but not particularly complex or memorable.

michael-pollack (4960) - King of Prussia, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 22, 2009
750ml Bottle: Aroma of apples, yeast, pale malts, slight spices, slight grains, and some fruit. Poured gold/yellow/amber in color with a tiny white head that disappeared quickly. Lightly cloudy. Slightly sparkling. Many tiny fish-food-like particles throughout. Flavor is light to medium sweet. Tastes of yeast, fruit, candi sugar, grains, slight alcohol, slight spices, and slight citrus. Light to medium body. Lightly dry texture. Average carbonation. Sweet, slightly yeasty finish. 9%ABV is pretty well hidden.

Jsawyer (297) - Glenside, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 16, 2009
Poured opaque yet lustrous golden body, looked very much like a gemstone, with a thin white head that quickly dissipates into a ring around the glass. Aroma was sweet orange, wheat, lemon, candi sugar, some cantaloupe, and very yeasty. Flavor was sweet candi sugar, toffee, citrus, white raisins, alcohol. Carbonation dances atop the tongue and burns along with the alcohol down the throat, and produces a very yeast bite. Good body for a tripel but too much alcohol.

Pour is the clearest gold uncharacteristic of the style. Yum! Aroma is chock full of candi sugar lending a honey/malty/worty aroma that is very sweet. Yeast is very strong in there too. Flavor is caaaaandi sugar and malt and yeast and heaven.
