Dank speckled hazy golden, decent white head. Estery and light banana, sweet nose - creamy in a way Fruity and creamy. like an Apricot Frube, tanking bitterness. Surprising finish for the ABV.

johndoughty (3716) - cheslyn hay, West Midlands, ENGLAND - JAN 9, 2011
Bottle. Golden and clear. Fruity with some maltiness.Quite complex with a medium body. What a pleasant shock this was.A very classy beer that many people will probably ignore because its a high street lable. Dont -it is excellent.

leaparsons (7805) - Leicester, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - SEP 16, 2010
Bottle. Clear amber with an off-white head. Aromas are toffee malts with citrus and crystalised pear. Cough medicine with floral notes. Flavours are sweet caramel with strong medicinal notes. Alcohol with lemon and spices. Pear with toffee and a green apple acidic finish. A bit unbalanced but OK.

harrisoni (12674) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - MAR 9, 2010
33cl bottle from M&S Liverpool. Clear pale amber, thin beige head. Fruity esters on the aroma. But something not quite right, maybe a bit light on the malt on the aroma. In the mouth, it’s the same thing, some decent ester and rose petal fruit typical of Belgian tripels, but something not quite right with the malts. Bit lacking in hop too. Bit too syrupy. Not sure this is very good, even though there aren’t any bad/off flavours. Just a bit syrupy and doesn’t really flow.

FatPhil (8604) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - FEB 6, 2010
330ml bottle (M&S)
Deep gold, small head. Aniseedy bubblegum aroma. Toffee butterscoth palate. Very sticky. Odd one, not so stypical tripel, needs to attenuate a bit further.

3.7
   AROMA 7/10   APPEARANCE 3/5   TASTE 7/10   PALATE 4/5   OVERALL 16/20
berkshirejohn (4206) - Bracknell, Berkshire, ENGLAND - JAN 22, 2010
33cl bottle. Golden amber with a compact white head; gentle carbination; typical Beligan yeast aroma, toasty and lightly spiced and also some apricot; rich buttery texture with more tropical fruit and a light prickle; warming syrupy finish - coating the throat rather than stripping it. A very pleasant example of a Tripel.
