piscator34 (1946) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - FEB 18, 2010
Bottled sample via lubiere. Dark gold in colour with fairly strong carbonation. Aromas are of pale malts, orange marmalade, yeast, apricot candy, a hint of caramel and a bit of rust on the back end. Firm pilsner malts upfront in the mouth, followed up by some strong stewed berry and stone fruits. The finish is crisp with a minerally bitterness. Medium bodied for a tripel, which is still fairly light. A bit long in the tooth, but still drinking fairly well.

Christian (11021) - Odense, DENMARK - MAR 1, 2009
Cloudy golden with a lasting white head. Fruity aroma of pineapple and orange, and a touch of bubblegum. Sweetish but balanced fruity flavour with some candy sugar. .

yngwie (13107) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - DEC 31, 2008
Bottle. An almost clear, golden-orange beer with an off-white head and some micro sized floaties. Fruity nose with some sweetness and a spicy touch. Sugary, fruity and citrusy flavor with some bitterness. Full-bodied, effervescent and slightly warming mouthfeel. The finish is fruity and sweet. A decent beer, quite well-tasting, but also a bit boring. (081003)

Lubiere (9734) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 22, 2008
A hazy orange amber with a thin white head. Aroma of sweet malt, orange peels, and light rosewater. In mouth, a nice crisp sweet malt with light sugary finish, coriander and orange peels. Classic. Medium bodied. Bieropholie import.

Bottle bb Nov 2011, courtesy of and shared with heavy (thanks!)
Lovely murky orange-apricot body. Fluffy white head that went away slowly. Sourish agrumey yeasty nose, some dust. Hm. Light, slightly sourish and dusty taste, some sweet maltiness. Slightly vinuous later on Balanced but a bit too light and no real typical Tripel flavors except maybe some weak agrumes. All too ordinary for the style.

#401... 0.33 l bottle from belgianshop.com. This turquoise nun poured murky orange to golden body with big white head. Orange aroma, pretty sharp, spiced with cinnamon and some honey. Itís yeasty, just like in the flavor, which is hanging between sour and bitter all the time. Orange peel, bit of lemon, some mild spices are components of its full body. Alcohol is very well hidden. Sharp and strong finish. Although it have many school characteristics of the style, itís not so typical, as itís quite sharp with its sourness and bitterness, so many wonít like it. Itís more than fine for me so Iím happy to choose 3 Abdis to note my 400th rating.
