iwantalambic (1478) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - DEC 11, 2005
11.2 oz capped bottle, fairly fresh: pours a slightly cloudy rose-gold with a thick marshmallow-like, white head. Sourdough and peppery clove effervescence laced with alcohol and pale malts in the aroma. Gritty and slightly fizzy palate with sweet honeydew melon and banana flavours. Very drinkable with the alcohol mostly hidden behind the doughy and pale malts. Cheers to my new co-worked, Dustin for this treat.

illinismitty (2270) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - DEC 8, 2005
Pours clear oranger, with a nice thick head. Sweet fruity aroma. I smell apple, yeast, malt. Typical strong Tripel aroma. Well carbonated but not fizzy. Alcohol is hidden well in the start, but comes out in the finish. Flavor is sweet, light, and slightly spicy. A decent tripel considering the price.

iowaherkeye (2698) - Ocean Beach, San Diego, California, USA - DEC 5, 2005
11.2oz bottle best before 07 2008. Pours a clear copper with a big, slightly off-white pillowy head. Smells of banana, clove, yeast, and some spices. Pretty well balanced with just a little bit of bitterness, and a finish of alcohol. Doesn’t taste like a 10% ABV.

DCJack (182) - Alabama, USA - NOV 30, 2005
nice tripel. smooth, bold, well-disguised alcohol content. smooth, warm aftertaste possibly the best tripel I’ve tried this is my 70th review and my standards have changed since my earlier tripel reviews

Had my first taste today. Have to honestly say that I was slightly disappointed. Very carbonated and had a pretty good flavor but after hearing great things about this one, I was expecting more.

jb (2539) - Rochester, New York, USA - NOV 18, 2005
UPDATED: MAY 3, 2009 A pleasing hazy orange with a thick white head. Well-carbonated. Grain, alcohol, apricot in nose. Oily, bubbly, sweet palate. Finish lingers. First one of this style for me, hope it is characteristic of it! Rerate 5/3/09 this really is an excellent tripel. Basically an after dinner drink but this one has more complexity going for it than some tripels.

Fish (440) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 18, 2005
I was surprised at how light this beer was, for the amount of flavor/ malt character it packed. Nice full body. Fruity hops were pretty mild, but fitting for the style I believe. There was a lot of figgy, plummy fruit in the malts too. Yum!

hershiser2 (1447) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - NOV 1, 2005
On Tap. Orangeish with a small, frothy head. Aromas of fruity alcohol. Sweet flavor with some fruitiness and a warming alcohol finish. Very tasty with my Sunday brunch.

Veer (362) - Landskrona, SWEDEN - OCT 30, 2005
UPDATED: NOV 17, 2005 Amber, deep golden. Aroma: sourish, citric, apple, malt, yeast and spices. Hoppy. Flavor: sweet, alcoholic (in a bitter-sour way). Sticky, reminds me of Montagnarde. Dull.
