TimE (3143) - Tokyo, JAPAN - MAR 16, 2004
White wine nose with a flowery orange mouth and lingering rich finish. Did grab me for the style, but still not bad.

Pale gold, witha spicy perfumey aroma. Some alcohol as well. Spicy flavor with good yeastiness as well. Juicy malt character. Good without being amazing.

This is amazing Tripel. Bottle conditioned / pours crystal clear if carefully poured off the yeast. Big Clove / Alcohol nose and similar flavor. Beautiful beer!

Suttree (5130) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - JAN 3, 2004
Huge amount of sediment in the bottle, but pours cloudy yellow, thin white head. Very nice aroma - mango, walnuts, some smoke, even some chocolate, but the especially the fruity mangoish aroma. Champaigne-like on the tongue. The first flavors are fruity, smoky, banana, and some nuttiness. Some alcohol is apparent, but not overwhelming. Very nice. It has a hand written "#105" on the bottle - batch number?

Murphy (1759) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - DEC 26, 2003
Very impressive bananna yellow color, perfect for the style. Great head retention, looks great in the glass. Citrus flavors all over this one. Excellent mouthfeel, nice touch of dryness. Only problem is the slight alcohol sting in the finish, if that wasn't there this would be an amazing tripel.

JCW (1274) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - NOV 15, 2003
Golden color, translucent with a big frothy white head. Fruity, yeasty, and sweet. Must have lots of candi sugar in it. This a very decent triple. A bit too sweet but very drinkable.

schm1005 (151) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JAN 8, 2003
Very light, white wine-like and crisp Tripel. You can smell the alcohol slightly but otherwise it has a very clean, champagne aroma. It looks like champagne too. There is a noticable fruitiness that is almost a little to much like bubblegum. It is good but I probably will not order another. My taste buds are better spent elsewhere.

UPDATED: JAN 9, 2004 I really do hope that for some freak reason this recipe was changed so drastically due in part to my previous rating, because it would really make my day . Anyways, I picked up a bomber of this at Bottleworks with #079 (bottle number - this is really small-scale) written in pen on the front. This was a completely different beer than when I had it previously on tap. Has a very creamy head that carries over into the mouthfeel. The big yeast and alchohol is backed up with some great malty fruit (apple, banana, etc.) but the most interesting part of this beer is the very uncharacteristic mouthfeel, it's just so creamy and un-tripelish. Great beer. 1/3/03 - This beer must be very new and in it's developmental infancy because this was not a well crafted Tripel. I have said it before and I'll say it again, American microbreweries just can't make these Belgian ales at all like those folk across the ocean do it. This was intensely bubblegummy, fruity, and had the mouthfeel and finish of white wine - a fruity one like Boone's. Not so successful but there's no harm in trying.
