Brodie (540) - Boone, North Carolina, USA - SEP 29, 2006
Bottle from MJ Rare Beer Club. Fruity aroma - lots of orange with underlying plum, melon, and floral notes. Light peppery and earthy yeast character, gently honey sweetness. Orange-golden color, good clarity, huge pillowy white head. Lightly sweet up front, biscuity malt, mild fruit and floral flavors. Finishes decidedly dry with a subtle spiciness, with just a touch of bitterness lingering on the palate. Medium body with high carbonation, typical for a tripel, noticable alcohol warmth in the chest. I think this is a drinkable but interesting (and underrated) tripel.

heman (505) - Tychy, POLAND - APR 7, 2016
Klarowne piwo ma złota barwę, nalewa się z intensywną, ładną białą pianą. Aromat średnio-intensywny, pierwszy plan to słodkie jasne owoce: brzoskwinie, morele, mirabelki. W tle subtelne nuty ziołowe. Piwo jest mocno wysycone i lekko słodkie w smaku. Ponownie dominują żółte owoce - każdy łyk przypomina łyk kompotu owocowego. Drugi plan to nuty pieprzowe, a finisz to niska, ziołowa w posmaku goryczka. Alkohol dobrze ukryty.

karpik (456) - Sosnowiec, POLAND - MAR 9, 2016
Fruity aroma with peach, some apricot and citrus. Pours golden with nice white head. Taste is a little bit too sweet for me, again fruity with spices. Low bitterness at the finish. Alcohol well covered. Overall just a solid tripel.

mgajdaczewa (1476) - Katowice, POLAND - MAR 5, 2016
W aromacie bardzo owocowo, rześko, brzoskwinie i cytrusy, leciuteńka kolendra, goździk, ogólnie przyprawy, bardzo zachęcający. W smaku już wszystko się sypie, zaczyna dominować kolendra, co przy raczej wytrawnym ciele i niskiej soczystości nieco męczy. Goździk i przyprawy również obecne. Alkohol dobrze ukryty. Ogólnie jest ok, choć do ekstraklasy stylu brakuje wiele.

Ruikt hoppig als in pils. Smaakt dun, vlak, bitterzoet. Niet zo mijn smaak.

SimonBlok (181) - GRONINGEN, NETHERLANDS - NOV 3, 2015
33 cl bottle at home. Pours clear golden with dissipating, off-white head. Aroma: medium malts, banana, spice, fruity. Some aroma I can’t describe, other than the same kind of taste in a strong, red wine. Taste: medium sweetness with low bitterness. Earthy notes and a hint of banana. Texture is oily and a little sticky. Carbonation is nice and lively.

Color oro chiaro. Malto, miele canditi, leggermente luppolata sul finale. Non male ma nulla di sorprendente
