Perkeo (322) - Portland, Oregon, USA - AUG 27, 2006
Nice pale but hazy gold with attractive bone white foam on top. Intese estery aroma, redolent with evergreen, citrus peel and juniper. Very alive on the palate, carbonation carries a nice peppery flavor that’s quite dry and thin bodied in a very refreshing way, very champagne like, but with the overall impression of champagne made in an East Kent (or Poperinge) hopyard...classic!

STEPHENDR (478) - California, USA - AUG 24, 2006
Dull gold/orange murky appearance – white head thick and frothy – nose is cereal, malts, dough, caramel– medium body – initial taste is sharp, cereal, malt, and yeast- aftertaste is medium with a creamy, acidic, and grains

Jerre (3019) - Waregem, BELGIUM - AUG 21, 2006
Pours a golden straw blonde color with a big frothy white head and some floaties, a bit cloudy, leaving some nice lace; it’s real purdy lookin’ an’ ev’rything. Aroma is a little moldy with wet hay, yeast and alcohol.; complex and sticking in the nose; a touch of citrus. Sourish, dry; lots of vinegary and cidery flavors; bready, yeasty, sourdough; herbal and citrusy, stale hops, Italian/Provencal food herbs. Flavors last forever, and dry out the tongue...This beer is absolutely phenomenal; very deep, complex from all aspects. This is one of the best beers I’ve had.

DuffMan (8152) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 16, 2006
Once again I’m underwhelmed with what appears to be a highly regarded tripel. I thought this came across as harsh and poorly integrated: very sweet up front, but with a dry bitterness in the finish that had an unpleasant ammonia quality. Maybe I need to try this again, because it seems my experience is way out in left field.

presario (4901) - Stampede City, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 15, 2006
UPDATED: SEP 1, 2006 Had another 4-pack and each bottle had a large fluffy head and a great sharp fresh taste. 33cl bottle. Best before Mar 09. Subdued head for style. Orange-yellow liquid. Smells of pears, yeast and candy sugar. Very peppery. More high alcohol saison than tripel perhaps. Just not sure where they hide the alcohol. At cellar temperature a light sweetness and fruitiness (pears) is present.

Glouglouburp (6103) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 11, 2006
UPDATED: JUL 4, 2007 Cloudy golden body with a large and long-lasting white head. Intense fruity and spicy nose. Also something about yeast or malt makes it a bit skunky/leather (although not unpleasant). Great spongy body which really fills the mouth. Very yeasty. Fruit peels and the type of spices I’d cook a chicken with (I’m probably the only person on earth who tastes onion salt in this beer). The lively carbonation is perfect and adds to long tickling finish. Almost as enjoyable as a minette blonde (french slang for something most heavy beer drinkers don’t get very often)

mkobes (2142) - paramus, New Jersey, USA - AUG 9, 2006
750 ml bottle. Golden in color with a ncie fluffy white head that left a nice lacing on the glass. Citrusy sweet fruity aroma. Yeast and lots of coriander notes. Sweet and nicely carbonated flavor. Fruity finish. Clean tasting. Clean mouthfeel. Medium bodied.

stegosaurus (1882) - Levittown, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 2, 2006
Bottle sampled with Beerded_one. Pours golden with a huge head that fade into a thin brim with excellent lacing. Aroma of citrus, fruit, belgian style spice, and yeast. The flavor is sweet, carbonated, spices are present, citrus, and fruit. This beer finishes clean. Good body, good brew.

NoiZe (2323) - Amersfoort, NETHERLANDS - JUL 21, 2006
Hazy golden coloured brew. Carbonated and grainy falvor and smell. Citrus and some other fruits. Sourness is not unpleasant, even a bit sweet. Nice.

weeare138 (936) - Collegeville, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 21, 2006
Appears a dense haze of pale gold with streams of CO2 quickly rising to the top. A fluffy 2 finger off-white head that slowly fades out into a mild cap. Solid streaks of lacing are left around the glass. Smell is Earthy, herbal, with hints of citrus, vanilla, and sugary candy, along with doughy yeast. Taste is of the same aromas with some yeasty goodness coming through nicely. There’s also a nuttiness that comes together nicely. Mouthfeel is full bodied, sticky sweet from the yeast, and dry. This is enjoyable if you’re thirsting for an authentic Belgian brew done with the Dupont yeast. Very yummy stuff.
