BMan1113VR (7902) - Los Angeles, California, USA - FEB 20, 2009
Bottle thanks to ilovedarkbeer. Pours with a large, foamy white head and a hazed yellow body. Good lacing. Aroma is alcohol first, with candi sugar, must, pear and pepper following. Taste is sweet with a bit of diacetyl, pear, and alcohol. Good tasting but very hot (alcohol forward). Light bubbles, alcohol on the palate and a dry mouthfeel. This vintage would be stellar with another 3 years of age on it.

TAP: at the Happy Gnome (St. Paul, MN) on 1.17.09. Gold/amber color, small foam head. Some citrus and hop on the nose. Taste is bread, caramel, raisin, tangy citrus. Nice tripel, but light on spice.

DuffMan (7836) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - JAN 9, 2011
Bottle, shared with Parksy while watching NFL quarter finals. Hazy dark golden yellow, lackluster head that retains poorly. Aroma is sweet barley candy, almonds, honey, and spices. Flavours of sweet pale malts, dried hay and flowers (chamomile), medium spices. Finish is a tad hot with alcohol. Medium bitterness. Just okay for me.

j12601 (7700) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - OCT 4, 2009
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.

marcus (7462) - Sacramento, California, USA - FEB 6, 2008
This orange ale poured with a thin off-white head, eliciting a fruity aroma. The flavor is very harsh for a tripel-style ale. The candy sugar is quite noticeable, and there are notes of citrus, herbs and cinnamon. However, it was not as sweet as I expected. This beer is drinkable, but not remarkable.

KyotoLefty (7452) - Kyoto, JAPAN - SEP 13, 2009
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.

bb (7382) - Alamo, California, USA - MAY 1, 2008
Bottle. Amber beer with an off-white head. Malty, yeasty, slight citrus and earth aroma. Sweet orange and malt flavor with yeast, a bit of dust, and earth. Possibly a bit of tartness as well. Medium body - carbonation a little low. Lingering orange, citrus, malt, and yeast. Different, but not bad.

Ughsmash (7354) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 25, 2010
750mL bottle.. some of the hardest wax to get off with a cork beneath.. dirty liquid made its way through the cork onto the top, and the damn cork broke halfway out. Eventually I get this f*er in the glass.. poured nearly clear bright golden with a short cap of white head.. a few Rogue chunks of cork made it into the glass as well. The aroma picked up tart lighter fruit skins and a lovely dose of floral and grassy hops over honey and more fruit.. warmth brought out dirty white pepper and vanilla.. excellent nose! The flavor couldn’t quite hold up to the aroma, but it was still quite tasty.. tart light fruits and floral bitterness opened as expected, with biscuity malts joining semi-sweet honey on the middle.. earth and white peppery spice on the edges.. finished with the tasty spices over honey.. all of the elements came together well, but they didn’t pop like in the aroma. Medium-bodied with a sweet overall complexion on the palate.. nothing but tasty stuff here.. greatly exceeded my expectations!

CaptainCougar (7133) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - MAY 5, 2007
Pours a clear, golden bronze with a nicely-lacing white head. Aroma of bready Belgian yeast and some sweet pale maltiness and coriander. Starts lightly pale malty and sweet with a nice balance of coriander spice and black peppery yeast. Exhibits pretty good balance and authenticity. A nice abbey tripel.

lusikka (7047) - Tampere, FINLAND - OCT 18, 2012
Draught @ Rogue Ales Public House, San Framcisco. Rated on 17.10.2012.
Pours a hazy bright yellow colour with a small head. Aroma of caramel, sweet orange and some yeastiness. Flavour is rather smooth with caramel, orange, lemon zest, yeast and subtle honey notes. Medium bodied, smooth mouthfeel with a warming fruity finish. Good.
