Light orange with huge light clean white head and a tornado like carbonation erupting from the center of the glass. An expected lace nicely coats the glass as I slowly drink it. Aroma is sharp and fruity, spicey and strong fruit with an alcohol presence. There is also a classic yeast and spice character which come in secondiarly. The feel is vibrant, active, and fruity. Wine like feel and great fruit flavor. Yeast and expected spice flavors top of this complex and very nice beer. Found at John’s Grocery in Iowa City.

blankboy (6525) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 19, 2005
Bottle shared with HogTownHarry at Ciro’s. Pours a cloudy orange-gold with a small off-white head. Mild, sweet & sour aroma with malt, fruit, spices and alcohol. Malty and yeasty flavour didn’t do much for me, it was quite "meh". The alcohol is too prominent in the aroma and taste. I found it just O.K.

CampbellWilson (533) - SCOTLAND - SEP 17, 2005
Bottle from Beers of Europe. Dark gold with creamy but small head. Aroma of peach, pepper, slightly funky yeast. Good dry hoppy finish. Very good.

NYHarvey (2153) - New York, New York, USA - SEP 13, 2005
Mild spun sugar aroma, but remarkably light aroma for a belgian. Orange hue with the typical Belgian head. Some pear notes and huge malt backbone. Very one dimensional. I expect a wider flavor palate from a Tripel.

HogTownHarry (6201) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - SEP 8, 2005
Bottle (330ml). At Ciro’s - shared with blankboy. Poured light amber-gold, almost murky, with a decent slightly off-white head. Aroma of sour cider, fruity malt, pineapple, sour citrus, some spiciness, light spruce resin and alcohol - quite mild. Taste also quite mild - noticeable alcohol hit (tingly ears), spicy, with steeped fruits, some ashy hop bitterness on warming - starts soft/sweet, ends a bit more alcohol/bitter. Mouthfeel average body, slightly sticky and minerally. An okay trippel, somewhat one-dimensional - the alcohol - perhaps a touch harsh, particularly in light of the superior St. Bernardus trippel that preceded it.

UNCCTF (512) - Cary, North Carolina, USA - SEP 3, 2005
On tap at the Flying Saucer in Charlotte. Golden coloring with a very fruity aroma. Flavor was warming, yeasty, and sweet. I liked the 6, and wasn’t a big fan of the 8, but this is a good tripel.

Classic belgian ale. Deep golden straw color with a nose of pairs. Yeasty, malty and smooth. Yummy!!

theacelatrain (262) - Washington DC, USA - AUG 31, 2005
Bottle. Pours hazy deep gold with light carbonation that kept going for some time. Nose of alcohol, sweet herbs, slight orange or lemon. A little malty, bready flavor at first, finishing with sweet, warming fruit brandy.
