33 cL bottle. Pours light hazy yellow with a collapsing white head. Light yeasty and fruity aroma. Flavour is sweet, slight yeasty. Gains some caramel malt and yeast spices along the way. Finish is mellow yeasty, that creamy nice yeasty mellow flavour. Clear alcohol presence too.

Bottled. A hazy golden beer with a huge lazing fluffy white head. The aroma is sweet malty with notes of wheat and yeast as well as some ginger. The flavor is sweet malty with notes of spices and yeast as well as a light alcohol touch, that tickles the tongue.

Papsoe (25063) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JAN 18, 2008
(Bottle 33 cl) Courtesy of fonefan. Hazy, pale golden with a tall and very lively, rough, white head that leaves some lacework. Sweetish, fruity nose with some alcohol. Quite full-bodied with sweetish, pale malts, fruit and diacetyl and a distinct alcohol in the finish. No bitterness. 120108

Travlr (21653) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - MAR 3, 2010
Bottle at Biest poort in Leuven. Bright copper color, clear, thin white head with lots of lacing. Aroma of whiskey and butterscotch. Flavor has butter, caramel, whiskey and a gentle smoke finish. Complex, lots of character. My favorite beer in Leuven.

mcberko (14663) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 13, 2014
Bottle, courtesy of tderoeck (thanks a lot, Tim), pours a hazy amber orange with a very large foamy white head. Nose is very yeasty upfront, with secondary notes of stone fruits and floral notes. Flavour is very much the same, with a big dirty yeasty component and large fruitiness. Better than the average score suggests, just perhaps a bit too much yeast soupiness. Decent tripel.

thewolf (12134) - Kolding, DENMARK - OCT 28, 2007
Bottle, bought @ Willems, Grobbendonk. [my 50th Tripel rating]
Pours a clear orangey yellow golden with a medium creamy white head that relatively quickly ends up as a thin film. Aroma is powerful, relatively cloying sweet with lots of fruit, yeast, honey, herbs and citrus. Nice, oily mouthfeel. Flavour is powerful with a good dose of lemongrass to begin with, yeast and a general viniousness. Aftertaste is sweetish with a herbal bitterness. Special, but not bad.

Bottle. Pours clear amber brown with a thick off white head. Aroma of overripe fruits, malt, yeast, caramel, brown sugar. Flavor is over moderate sweet and moderate bitter. Medium bodied with fairly high carbonation.
