Jado (494) - Camp Hill, AUSTRALIA - MAY 27, 2013
Pours a hazy brownish amber with a pillowy white head. Aromas of apple, pear and spice dominate, with a bit of banana and a hint of booze. The taste is rich fruit up front - apple, fresh plum - with some cinnamon spice and pepper notes. Despite the boozy scents, the alcohol is well integrated and not prominent at all. Finish is pretty clean, with a nice vanilla/spice aftertaste. This was really good.

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.

Jade (407) - 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.

SorenE (168) - , NEW ZEALAND - MAR 23, 2010
fizzy golden, no head retention. first smell of this didn’t seem promising in my nostrils, dominated by spicy phenols, I prefer my tripels more dominated by fruity esters. the taste was really good though, mainly fruity and perfect balance of sweet flavours with a dry palate. going back to the aroma it ’fruitens up’ while its warming up. alcohol is certainly there but it is not head ache inducing. quite tasty! Cheer to nate2g for the bottle

Mattburns (109) - USA - JUL 11, 2010
Fresh and lively. Citrus and malt in flavour. Hints of a hoppy bitterness. Alcohol is there in the flavour as well, but who could blame coming in at 9.5.

orange_3084 (78) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - JAN 4, 2013
Pours hazy golden orange colour. Medium head with good retention and lacing. Fairly weak aroma of citrus, caramel and bread. Medium creamy body feels good across the tongue. Taste is fairly dry, a little sour. The alcohol is very noticeable. A little bittering adds to a nice lingering finish.

Bottle from Nectar Beer & Wine Specialists, West End, Brisbane. A little sweet but not cloyingly so - I like it. Doesn’t hold a candle to the great Belgians, but I agree with the previous comment - a decent expression of the style. Well done.
