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.

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

SimonBlok (105) - 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

Icedwarf (1006) - Etten-Leur, NETHERLANDS - SEP 25, 2015
Helder donkergeel bier met veel schuim. Smaak is fris fruitig, licht zoetzuur en bitter hoppig met vanille sporen. Erg goed.

AssKicker (68) - Strasbourg, FRANCE - SEP 18, 2015
Une blonde légèrement orangée avec des bulles puissantes et une légère acidité en entrée de bouche. Vient ensuite le malt tout en douceur, puis une langue qui reste anestésiée sur la longueur, un peu comme avec un chewing gum à la menthe. Une chouette bière.

NosirIwont (2203) - 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 (378) - 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 (3690) - Vadum, DENMARK - MAY 1, 2015
VBC 2015. Clear golden of color with a white foamy head. An aroma of honey, malt, weak spice and sweets. A flavor of sugar, sweets, spice and more sweets.

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.
