Bottle thanks to Trevor at Peter’s tasting. Pours a clear hazy orange gold with a thin white head. Light plum and esters. Medium bodied, sweet, light candy and plum. Finishes a bit sweet with a very light bitterness. Not entirely balanced.

Draught at Rogue Ales and Public House, Portland. Yeasty wheat aroma; a bit fruity. Very sweet and very alcoholic up front, then with a wildly bitter hop and alcohol finish. A bit too cloying, but then the hammer falls. Interesting interpretation of a tripel, though could be better assembled.

Bought a 750 bottle of this when we visited Newport in May. Hazy orange pour....minimal head. Sweet spicey malt nose. Really enjoyed the flavor...a little hot but the spice was quite good...great tripel interpretation.....I was quite surprised! Going to buy this one again.

hayduke (3559) - Eureka, California, USA - AUG 20, 2009
This was a draft poiut at the Rogue Public house in Portland, Oregon. Ths came a hazy orange color with an off-white head and good sticky lacings rings. The nose is dominated by apple, pear, yeast, and spices. Mouthfeel is lively but clean on the palate. Flavor starts out sweet but it to a tartness that shows the fruit flavors. Finish shows lots of fruit flavors as well. The alcohol in this is well hidden.

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 (963) - 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.
