presario (4902) - Stampede City, Alberta, CANADA - OCT 3, 2005
Poperinge had a bottle open on his flight back from Belgium so we had to drink as soon as it was unpacked. Obviously somewhat unsettled. Cloudy orange. Light but lasting head. Smells like a very good wheat with banana and yeast. Full flavour of orange, banana and yeast.

A Mes rate: A very high quality tripel. Quite dark for a tripel. Rather cloudy with a decent thin head that lasted very well. Apricot and slight malt in the nose. Flavour is similar but with some peach in there too. Peach? I dont even like peach! Sweet and tangy. This is damn fine stuff. Finish is long, starting with marzipan and gradually going bitter. I am not the biggest fan of tripels but I reckon this is top drawer stuff.

Papsoe (25063) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - SEP 18, 2005
(Bottle 75 cl) Hazy amber colour with a small, creamy head. Aroma is malty with notes of yeast. Flavour comes with sweet malt and typical ale notes of fruit. Dry, lightly bitter finish. A pleasant drink. 160905

When your best girl friend is puking int he bathroom after her bachlorette party you have to drink something to pass the early morning hours--the Rulles was much to grand for this calling but a welcome respite from the american canned beers and shots of the night’s activities. Seemed to have more alcohol than posted, full of flavor, warm bodied, sweet finish, a relished treasured drinkable friend with an inviting label that I think I spoke to.

jimmack (1223) - Nutley, New Jersey, USA - SEP 11, 2005
750ml. bottle. Hazy golden/orange color with a large white head. Aroma is fruity (peaches), spicy(pepper, coriander) and yeasty. Flavor was pretty mild, more saison-like than a tripel. It had the same fruity/spicy flavor that the aroma indicated, but was kind of dull and watery.

Cornfield (5570) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - AUG 14, 2005
If I hadn’t opened the bottle myself, I would have thought this to be a light Belgian golden. The 8.4% abv is well disguised, too. It pours a hazy, cloudy golden body alive with the swirly bits, yeast all over the place. The foamy head does has good retention and does some masterful lacing. The aroma is a stright-arrow citric smell, perhaps tangerine, with a touch of floral hops. The taste is sharp and acidic, some malt, to be sure, but predominantly a tart citric flavor. The finish is sour and a bit sticky. Strange tripel.

750ml bottle served in my NB worthy glass:

Hazed golden hue with a nice frothy head and very good lace. The aroma is quite different than expected with lots of spicy notes of coriander, anise, and herbs. Some fruity, barnyard, and phenolic esters as well. The taste is equally strange and not what I would expect in a tripel. Sure there is a sweet malt and candi sugar base, but there is also a moderate acidic and flowery nature than seems not to fit the style. I get some phenols on the palate as well. The finish sort of peters out and only leaves some lingering pepper and just a touch of orange rind to remind you of what you just finished. That said, I do enjoy the flavor of this offering as a whole. The feel is fizzy and lively but not really refreshing either, once again not very Tripel like. There are some alcohol notes as well well into the bottle tasting. It is more Biere de Garde or even a winter Saison than Tripel in my opinion. In the end, it is an good brew to try and next time I will approach it more like the styles I wrote above and not expect a abbey beer.

hotstuff (4771) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - AUG 11, 2005
Bottle. Large white head that was mostly lasting and contained fine-small sized bubbles, excellent lacing, yeasty, cloudy, carbonated, and a yellow gold hue. Aroma was malty, sweet and spices. Flavor was malty and spicy. Mouthfeel was tingly. Medium body. Nicely done and well worth a try IMMHO.
