Papsoe (25063) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - SEP 8, 2011
Bottle 33 cl. Courtesy of bluebetty. Pours a clear golden with a white head. Fruity, phenollic aroma. Medium body, sweet fruits and heavy phenols. Alcohol is very well hidden. A very "clean" Tripel. 080911

Slighlty hazy orange body with hardly lasting head. Light banana on the nose and sweet malt. Fruity taste of apricot and figs, effervescent, with sneaky alcohol.

mcberko (14665) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 29, 2011
330mL bottle, pours cloudy yellow with a white head. Aroma of straw, yeast and cereal malt. Flavour is quite carbonated - complex yeast, banana and citrus, with lingering citrus notes. Very solid.

Matts_Property (830) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 28, 2011
Bottle. Pours cloudy blond/yellow with a dissipating white head. Aroma of caramel, toasted malts, citrus fruits. Flavour is hop heavy, caramel malts, citrus fruit. Well balanced. Bitter at first then becomes milder and quite smooth. Dry mouth feel.

mickmac (484) - Ngunnawal, AUSTRALIA - MAR 20, 2011
Bottle. Hazy gold body with a large off-white foamy head. Moderate to highly carbonated. Aroma of banana, coriander seed, cloves. Taste-sweet, bread-biscuit, dry spices, banana-a touch of bitterness at the end of the finish. Medium bodied. An estery example of the style and doesn’t have the bitter backbone of some triples, but excellent, I really enjoyed it.

bmeup (639) - Ormeau, AUSTRALIA - MAR 9, 2011
Mmm, orange colour, heady aromas, citrus, stone fruit, banana and spice. Sweet taste, lengthy finish. Very good.

davidm (2069) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - MAR 9, 2011
On tap at Biero. Masterpiece. Aromas of apricot, with a touch of caramel; nuts, bread, and alcohol. Taste is sweet and dry, slightly peppery, with great length. Palate is creamy, and full bodied. Orange, with a persistent head.

Stew41 (1942) - Phuket, THAILAND - DEC 28, 2010
No better or worse than most examples of the style (and that includes those from Belgium). Looks and smells like the real deal; glowing orange, big fizzy head and a nose full of sweet sugary tropical fruits. Palate has a hard licorice note, no doubt due to the high ABV, and this dominates the flavours. In fact, hard to pick up much else apart from a cook fruit component. Fizzy finish.

BarossaLuke (552) - AUSTRALIA - NOV 5, 2010
Pale in colour, some nice ester aroma there too. Light on the palate but has some slightly hot alcohol there too. Doesn’t come across as being 9.5%, quite light and generally well balanced.

Jade (434) - AUSTRALIA - SEP 3, 2010
Coppery gold colour, highly carbonated with a frothy white head that dissipates quickly. Wheat aroma. Bitter, highly hopped taste with plenty of wheat. Not a terrible beer at all.
