slabonator (29) - Dallas, Texas, USA - SEP 22, 2005
11.2 ounce bottle from Wholefoods. Pours a hazy orange with a full white head. Floral, herbal aroma with hops and fruit. Flavor is full with spicy hop and fruit and crisp carbonation. Sweet at the end with a lingering dry, hop finish.

SledgeJr (3577) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - SEP 19, 2005
In the bottle at the Dundee Dell. Pours a cloudy golden with slight orange-amber tones and a thick white head. Beautiful looking beer. Strong fruit/floral/medicine aroma. Outstanding lacing engulfs the side of the glass. Wonderful flavor of alcohol and malt. Fermented fruits appear. Tingly to the tip of the tongue (pepper?). A great example of Belgian Tripel.

MesandSim (7119) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 5, 2005
A Mes rate: Tap @ PBF. Very decent blonde. I am not usually much of a blonde fan so those of you who generally do like them would probably rate this a little higher. Does everything a blond should. Good head, lots of lace for this type of beer. Creamy, spicy, I will agree with Hopgeeks banana observation too. Nice spicy finish. Smooth and downable. Very nice.

Hopgeek (90) - San Diego, California, USA - AUG 31, 2005
Pours a thick yellowed peach hue and makes a dense white head with lots of lacing. Aroma is a musty banana with a subtle hint of cloves. Flavor opens with some bittering and a peppery spice, yeasty banana character dominates the middle and there is a bit of buttery toffee, finishes with a strong peppery bite. Lots of carbonation on the palate with a medium to fully body and a slightly sticky finish. This is a nice offering, it seems to deviate a bit from what I am used to in a Belgian strong pale with the extreme peppery spice, but I like it. I would try again, but sadly I have but this 1 bottle.

Boutip (4775) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 22, 2005
Bottle (courtesy of Presario): Poured an hazy blonde color ale with a super huge foamy white head with perfect retention. Aroma of funky yeast and coriander with some floral hops. Taste is sweet with some nice farmhouse feel to it, mix of coriander and wheat is well done. Alcohol is extremely well hidden (I thought I was drinking a 6% beer) and body is just above average. Truly a wonderful triple just the way I love them.

bb (6858) - Alamo, California, USA - AUG 7, 2005
Bottle. Hazy amber with a huge white head. Spicey aroma with some yeast and malt. Yeasty, spicey, flavor with some malt backing. Some honey, herbal, pepper tones. Very good.

Crosling (1863) - Loveland, Colorado, USA - JUL 31, 2005
Gold clarity with an enormous head. Wonderful, distinctly Dupont aroma, full of esters loads of fruit and farmhouse funk. Flavor is amazing, with loads of fruit and farmhouse.

harrisoni (13848) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - JUL 28, 2005
Bottle. I thought that this was a tad bland. Nothing wrong with it, just not enough to set it apart from other similar beers
