This beer has a light yellow body - hue with a bitter initial flavor and a heavy body.

hopscotch (8534) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - AUG 1, 2003
Crystal clear, light golden ale. Very large, everlasting, rocky head. Crazy lacing. Nose of coriander, orange peel and yeast. Well-balanced with flavors of candy sugar, bitter hops and alcohol. Full-bodied with a syrupy mouthfeel and fizzy carbonation. Medium-length, bitter, astringent finish.

presario (4533) - Stampede City, Alberta, CANADA - JUL 30, 2003
Beautiful gold colour. Large initial head and lasting white foam and lacing. Initial strong aroma of candy, followed by lasting yeast. Humble sweetness and hop mixture. Light but long lasting alcohol/hop aftertaste. A classy smooth beer deserving of a higher rating.

TipsyMcStager (1128) - Calgary, Alberta, CANADA - JUL 30, 2003
Spicy yeast aroma with alcohol. Pours golden yellow, clear (which I didn't expect), head is foamy and white, lacing is good. Belgian spiciness in the flavour. Alcohol and smooth sweetness in the finish. Not really complex but quite drinkable none the less.

Bottled. Nice solid average tripel. Tasted what it should be. Not sweet enough for me. Very drinkable however.

JFGrind (1810) - Glenside, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 29, 2003
I sampled this beer a few months ago after drinking numerous other beers. I thought I'd give my taste buds a rest beofre sampling the Trippel again. After a second try I believe my rating would have been identical. Average Belgian alcohol aroma, adequate golden color, nice lacing head, and yeasty flavor.

RichardGretton (4176) - Leicestershire, ENGLAND - JUL 16, 2003
Dark blonde beer with a long lasting frothy head, and an intense alcoholic nose. A refreshing strongly bitter fruit flavour. A good Belgian triple.

bowen008 (134) - Houston, Texas, USA - JUL 10, 2003
Sweet. Very sweet. As it warms more flavors begin to surface. I do taste the grapefruit here. No bubblegum though.
