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.

NosirIwont (2152) - Aalborg Vestby, DENMARK - MAY 10, 2015
Bottle. 8.0%. Best before 10.01.15 – 4 months past. 10 cl. sample. Pours a slightly hazy golden with a white head. Sweetis haroma with a tart note. Fruity, grassy, feels a bit unbalanced. Flavour is a bit fat and tart, quite grassy, also fruity and with an earthy note. Again, unbalanced – basically seems somewhat unfinished. A bit too much carbonation. 01.05.15.

MOLA_DK (375) - DENMARK - MAY 1, 2015
Bottle share at VBC. Clear yellow with a lot of yeast floating. Nice white head. Bready aroma. Taste is oddly sweet, kind of sugary/molasses, not nice. Highly carbonated.

Enjoyit (3610) - Vadum, DENMARK - MAY 1, 2015

mike_77 (3994) - Breda, NETHERLANDS - APR 27, 2015
Clear bright yellow appearance. Aroma of sweet malt and sugary fruit. Very clean and fresh tasteLight yeast in the flavour. Not an overly sweet Tripel so nice and easy to drink.

MrHangover (3306) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - JAN 21, 2015
Bottle. Pours a clear dark golden beer with a small white head on top. Aroma is yeasty, apples, bready and a faint malty quality. Not much going on there and neither in the flavor. Soft sweet, medium malty and a slight sour yeasty finish. Decent and boring at the same time this is. Not much else.

Alengrin (3401) - BELGIUM - JAN 20, 2015
Somewhat of a classic, since 1994. Peach blonde, hazy, with thick and frothy cream white head; restrained fruitiness, hints of apple and apricot, honeyish malt sweet touch, yeasty, medium carbo, herbal hop bitterish finish with a hint of warming alcohol. Perfectly acceptable, albeit stereotypical Belgian tripel.

rikstar (1463) - NETHERLANDS - NOV 29, 2014
0,33l fles gedeeld met bryanvdv na een dagje brouwen. Kopergoud met een witte schuimkraag. Geur is moutig met een zuurtje, smaak ligt ’n het verlengde van de geuren, aardige tripel.
