MiP (14656) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - MAY 31, 2005
Draught. Slightly fruity aroma. Cloudy golden colour. Semi-fruity flavour. Good mouthfeel. Not very highly carbonated. Aftertaste is a little sweet with a hint of tea.

marcus (8296) - Sacramento, California, USA - MAY 30, 2005
This golden tripel-style poured with a slight white head. The initial flavor is full with a carbonated mouth feel and a slightly bitter finish. Overall, a nice tripel.

barenada (211) - Georgetown, Indiana, USA - MAY 28, 2005
(draft) A fairly standard tasting tripel. Perhaps a little more citrus than I’d prefer, but very drinkable.

Jokes (1453) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAY 24, 2005
Hazy golden body with a fluffy, white head that leaves thick sheets of heavy lace. A nice, subtle aroma of clove, honey, orange peel, wheat bread, earthy hops, a little coriander, bananas and some lemon grass. The body is crisp and effervescent with excellent carbonation. The flavor is well crafted and fairly balanced. The fruity esters and spices are the definite draw to the beer with the mild, slightly tart wheat bread and yeasty character lightly in the background. The alcohol is well hidden, giving the slightest hint of warmth at the very end. The warmth combines with dry, hoppy bitterness for an elegant finish. One of the triples I’ve enjoyed most of late--a tasty beer.

ThomasE (5174) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - MAY 23, 2005
Golden colour with a dense off white head. Fruity and yeasty aroma with hints of spices. Fruity and light citric flavor, hoppy and dry bitter finish.

TomDecapolis (4618) - 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.

jaymobrown (1792) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAY 19, 2005
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.

   AROMA 8/10   APPEARANCE 5/5   TASTE 8/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 17/20
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 (8855) - 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.
