Panzerfaust (759) - Hanga Roa, Easter Island, CHILE - DEC 10, 2006
UPDATED: JAN 29, 2007 Bottle at Sicosis: Pours a very hazy but lively yellow color. Head is big white and has good retention. It leaves a gorgeous film and lacing. Aroma is very spicy, malty/yeasty with a huge vanilla and banana presence. There are also hints of coriander, pepper, clove and a cereally, wheaty note. Like a gargantuan Hefe/Wit crossover. Flavor is strong, spicy too. Big sweetness with vanilla and banana aroma, in accordance with the aroma. Complex and very true to Tripel style. Excellently crafted. Medium body and carbonation. Alcohol is well concealed compared to others of the same style. Finish is sweet and spicy. A very good Tripel.

Bottle at home. Wow. A great Tripel. Very lemony, citrusy, of course, with cloudy orange colour. Coriander smaak. A popping mouthfeel. Nice bite at the end.

GG (2332) - NorCal, California, USA - NOV 17, 2006
Easily one of the best beers I’ve had in awhile. This one has the whole package and it doesn’t skimp on anything. Aroma is peaches, apples, pears and other sweet fruit. Appearance was excellent with an explosive white head and excellent lacing to go with the hazy orangish/yellow hue. Mouthfeel was bright and alive, and the beer seemed to be dancing on your toungue like a live wire. Flavors were more of the same with the nose, with an excellent dry finish that paired excellently with my dinner. I can only imagine how good this beer would be in Beligum, but I’m happy enough to consume it when I can.

Another one that I found my old notes on. My bottle was small (375 ml?) and it didn’t have a cork, and it had a gree label. But I googled this, and I believe that I am rating the correct beer here. We had this a couple of months back when Quillaraymi returned from Atlanta. I loved this beer, with a whole medley of flavors. My notes include pumpernickel bread, vanailla ice crea, hint of licorice, plums and "a medley of flavors". I am really warming up to Belgain beers.

Eructoblaster (3608) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 11, 2006
Bottle - 750ml. Nice hazy golden body topped with a thick white foamy head. Well balanced malty/hoppy aroma with yeasty, citrusy and coriander notes. Alcohol is very well hidden. Taste is sharp and well balanced. Along with the hoppy flavors, it carries various herbal, flowery and fruity hints. It leaves a long and strong bittersweet aftertaste. This is a lovely one.

25 cl bottle in the Neterlands. A great blonde. Full of citrus and grassy aromas, while some maltiness balances this in a very pleasant way.

TheGrandMaster (2335) - Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - OCT 25, 2006
Draught at Caves Dupont, the brewery tap, cloudy gold with a large think pure white head, which is bubbly on top. A strong yeasty aroma with hints of stewed fruits. In the mouth, it is all about the palate rather than the flavour. Very complex, sweet (like honey) and light at first, then dry, firey and peppery in the finish. Very good.

Bottle: Golden hazy color with a very nice white and relatively short living head. Nose of citrus fruits, yeast and spices. The flavour is of oranges / lemon. Sour, bitter and alcoholic finish.

THIS IS NOT A TRIPEL!! It is more of an attempt to brew a slightly strong saison, hence the earthiness in the aroma and taste and the discreet hops and bitterness. It is also spiced, as can be detected by the brown specs on the head of the beer, and the slight coriander flavours. An excellent beer.
