Brodie (540) - Blowing Rock, 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.

Trappist1 (349) - Diest, BELGIUM - MAR 28, 2014
From tap at delirium (while ago). Blond orangy color, white head. Nose: malt, typical belgian yeast, typical Van Den Bossche, nothing surprising here and this goes for the whole beer. Citrus and spices in the back.

Standard Belgian tripel, nice to drink once in a while, but not very interesting.

McWorta (478) - LUXEMBOURG - FEB 27, 2014
UPDATED: FEB 28, 2014 Light blond colour with a frothy white fading head. Noses floral, wet grass and summer field flowers showing hints if ginger and orange zest. Refreshing with a slick light fizzy texture. Well balanced with a light and short to medium lasting finish.

Borresteijn (4402) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - FEB 8, 2014
33cl Bottle at Tripel, A’dam. Hazy golden colour, white head. Aroma of hay, grain, fruits, some citrus, yeast. Flavour is medium-sweet, light-malty, grainy, hay, light fruity, some citrus, dry finish. Medium-bodied at best. OK.

Alusmamuts (148) - LATVIA - FEB 6, 2014
Light clear amber with rich, fastly disappearing white cap. Mild taste for its strength, bitterness on the tongue tip, yeasty bitterness on the root.

derBreslauer (133) - Wroclaw, POLAND - DEC 15, 2013
Pale yellow color, quite heavy. Rocky head, but disappears very quickly. Aroma is mostly malty, wheaty with some fruit and floral background. Some vanilla noticeable. Taste is similar, but has dry wooden and alcohol finish. Hard to judge this, but it’s worth trying.

terefere (140) - Warsaw, POLAND - NOV 30, 2013
Bottle 33cl. Golden color, lovely creamy head, largely sparkling. Aroma of hay, sweet fruit, wheat. Taste is bitter-sweet, malt, fruit, wheaty and lightly alcoholic finish. Full body, creamy texture, lively carbonation. Not bad.
