Cloudy golden beer with a white head, sediment in the bottle. Spicy fruit and yeast in the aroma. A yeasty, zesty, refreshing taste with spice and orangey fruit. Good hoppy finish. Tripels are definitely growing on me.

hopdog (10105) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 18, 2005
33cl bottle shared courtesy of TomDecapolis (thanks!). Bottle labeled best before 13/10/06. Poured a medium and slightly hazy golden color with a large sized white head. Aromas of fruits, light spices and yeast. Fruity tasting with some spices. Medium sweet. Lively body that ends in a nice clean and crisp finish.

imdownthepub (11662) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - NOV 15, 2005
Bottle conditioned, aged 7.5 yrs. Cloudy orange, short lasting head, yeast lumps. The aging has changed this into a smooth rounded caramel, syrupy beer with few of the spicy notes usually found in the fresh samples. A litle cough mixture in the flavour with some clove but otherwise unremarkable.

boto (1969) - Granby, Connecticut, USA - OCT 29, 2005
750ml bottle: I bought this last year and decided to see how good it could be with a little nurturing. Mine poured a darder, golden color that was very hazy. It had a good strong head on it. The aroma is fairly common for this type, with a bready, yeasty start and a bit of banana and clove in it. A hint of some spiciness also. It is a bit weaker in strengh than some of the others of this type. The taste is quite smooth. Bready, with a bit of banana and clove to the taste. A touch lighter than expected. I think that ageing didnít have any real impact on the flavor, except for maybe taking a bit of the rough edges off of it.

Bottle from Peckhams. Cloudy Orange with large but diminishing head. Aroma of orange, pepper, yeast, candy sugar, biscuit. Little bit sweet in the taste but finish rounded and slightly bitter. Not bad.

Veer (362) - Landskrona, SWEDEN - SEP 28, 2005
UPDATED: NOV 24, 2006 Golden yellow with great head. Smells sweet, yeasty, spicy, malty. It tastes much like Leffe Blonde, but better. Itís quite smooth and simple.

KarmanGhia (276) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - SEP 21, 2005
The Leffe Triple is stong, with prevalent alcohol, but it is harldy different in flavor than most Belgians - it is salty upfront with a hard hitting bitterness that quickly fades leaving a slight stickiness on the lips and a longing for more high alcohol pleasure. The color is gold, nearly copper, and the head is large, big-bubbled and white. The extra punch of this brew lends complexity, but that is almost cheating isnít it? This is standard for the style.
