TomDecapolis (4617) - Milton, Delaware, USA - MAY 21, 2005
UPDATED: JUN 7, 2005 This was a rather standard Tripel. A bit of pepper and fruit (citrus) coming through on this one. Had it on tap at Monks Cafe in Philadelphia.

MilkmanDan (1943) - Eagan, Minnesota, USA - MAY 20, 2005
Bright gold with a hazy orange core. Nose fruity, bit spicy, but incredibly perfumey, very redolent. Significantly less spicy than I expected, some yeastiness there, bit bready. Some hops at the end, loads of perfume again, vaguely burns the inside of the mouth. Quite fruity. Best part of the drinking experience is the mouthfeel, simply an amazing palate. Very creamy and rich, stunningly velvety. Palate-wise, reminds me of the Fantome Ete I recently had, lovely, sticky fullness to it.

Light, lemon appearance. Sugary, pear nose. Yeast, alcohol, some cooke, and dough flavors. Balanced with a citrus, orange peel flavor. Some white pepper. Active on the tongue. This is solid, but the flavors could stand out more. Tends to lose its dimensions after some time.

tiggmtl (4545) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 19, 2005
UPDATED: JUN 5, 2006 Complex, floral, perfumey aroma offers pepper, lavender, orange blossom, mild sulfur, a hint of soap and strong biscuity malts. Opaque yellow-tan with decent and lasting cover of white head that leaves excellent lacing. Sugary, yeasty, tropical fruit flavours with green, leafy, citrus-pine hops and a mild bitterness that takes the edge off. Medium body with fair carbonation. Bottle enjoyed with beerbuzzmontreal, MartinT, Olivier_MTL, Rastacouere and Yowie.

MartinT (8550) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 17, 2005
The Lure:
A soft Spalt-y, piney and peppery hop pillow on which is sprinkled some orange zest. Simple dreams ensue.

The Festivities:
Piney hops rise proudly above the bitter yeast beach. Fluffy waves tropically crash on the back of the palate, decreasing the level of seriousness of the flavors.

Transcendence:
A northern summer sun is a vivifying refreshment.

beerbuzzmontreal (3488) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 16, 2005
Pours a hazy orange color with a thin white head. It has an aroma of yeast, pepper and citrus. The flavor is the same, yeast, pepper and citrus. Light to medium body, creamy texture, moderate carbonation. Very good, the peppery flavor adds a very interesting dimension to this tripel.

Rastacouere (6159) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 15, 2005
Extreme stickiness of the foam make up a marvellous mountainous white head to cover the cloudy golden hue. Typical honey malt, almost toffeeish in its sweetness is nicely balanced by the extreme yeastiness and strong hop complexity. Sappy hop overtones procure a pineapple sensation that reminds of a sunny summer day. Alcohol is present, but mellow and blending well with the higher than average bitterness. Nice mouthfeel works well with the citrusy profile. Very smooth and creamy texture through a softer than velvet carbonation.

bu11zeye (12268) - Frisco (Dallas), Texas, USA - MAY 7, 2005
(750ml bottle) Pours a cloudy maize body with a large egg-white head. Aroma of florals, grass, cheese, horse blanket, and mustiness. Spicy yeast flavor with a soft mouthfeel.

OlivierMTL (711) - Quebec, CANADA - APR 27, 2005
UPDATED: OCT 4, 2005 Couleur oranger pale, très nuageux. Mousse abondante sur laquelle flottent quelques grosses bulles savonneuses. Nez parsemé d’esters très fruités annonçant une parade de pêche, de fleurs, de gazon, de gomme au savon. Massivement fruité en bouche, mandarines, tangerines et oranges tentent de dissimuler un bouquet de coriandre et d’herbes fraîchement coupées. Une belle touche de malt caramel vient apporté exactement la balance sucre / amertume que je recherche dans ce style. Niveau de carbonisation élevé qui ne pourrait être plus approprié. Une finale plutôt sèche et herbal comme seul le houblonnage a sec peut en rendre l’image. Dégusté en fût en compagnie de Nicholas au Délirium Café, voyage Europe 2005. Version Bouteille 75CL; Couleur orangée, trouble, grosse mousse crémeuse. Une masse de levure fait obstruction aux arômes d’agrumes, de conifères et de poivre. La levure est nettement plus dominante dans cet emballage. Vive les futs! 7-4-7-4-14
