DerWeg (1524) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 21, 2004
UPDATED: DEC 30, 2004 33cl bottle, aged one year, sediment slightly disturbed by my random carelessness. Pours with a slight cidery translucence (thanks to me), goldy orange, with fine persistent bubbles which aspire to a thin and diminishing head. But who cares what it looks like, lets try it. Aroma slightly sweet and fruity, yeast. Tasting some biting grassy hop bitterness countered by solid sugary backbone, takes its time winding down on the center of my tongue and palate. Nice of you to visit. The controlled hop dryness is one feature that I notice in good tripel (as if Iím some expert) and this one does it for me although Iíd like to have more hints of pineapple or gooseberry or whatever tart/sweet fruits get into these sometimes. Bornem Tripel ainít bad that way. This beer was not excessively alcohol-y for me although I cool anything to at least at cellar temp and as wine freaks will tell you this makes the alco seem less "hot".

IslandHaole (1091) - Yokosuka-Shi, Kanagawa-Ken, JAPAN - DEC 7, 2004
A hazy dark gold, layer of sediment at the bottom of the bottle. Big foamy beige head that quickly disapates. The first scent remins me of Worchestershire sauce(!), Rich fruit dessert, almonds, alcohol. Sweet chewey malts, cotton candy dipped in brandy. Very tasty and a great dessert beer for cold winter nights such as this.

Clear amber/orange color with big white head. Aroma has Belgian esters, spice, and alcohol. Taste has the same characteristics, soem malt, breadiness, and finished dry with lingering alcohol. Another nice ber from this brewery.

PorterPounder (5697) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - DEC 2, 2004
750 ml bottle - Whole Foods - Austin, Tx. Pours a dark murky orange with a thick, ever present white head with good lacing. Aroma has alcohol notes, with some date fruitiness. Flavor has some some sweet, malty accents reminding me of toffee with a bit of a chocolately back end. Smoth palate - 10% ABV is hidden quite well and it goes down ever so smoothly. A very decent Tripel.

Drew (2411) - Kent, Ohio, USA - NOV 24, 2004
Glowing orange bubbly body topped with a typically huge belgian head that leaves thick clinging lace. Sweet floral yeasty and spice aroma. Body is well carbonated, but soft; sweet malts, herbs, pepper, fruit. Light hops and dry at the end. Alcohol was well hidden.
