Rastacouere (6159) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 7, 2004
750mL: Shining golden hue, dense Dupont style white head with gorgeous lacing. Big yeast clouds float around the glass. Delectable pilsner malt nose with honey tones. Crisp cookie reminiscent toasty and floral flavours. Rather complex if not demarcative. Creamy and fluffy mouthfeel, not quite bubbly though. Sweet mouth entrance is accompanied by a white peppery yeast atmosphere. This pilsner malt puts the crisp in crispy, saazy finish provides a good bitterness with a bit more ironoxide than I’d like. Characterful, herbal, Dupont quality mark.

CapFlu (4785) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 7, 2004
(750ml bottle) Pours a medium, white creamy head with a cloudy amber body. Huge sediment. Lemony and sour. An abbey tripel? Really?

willblake (2654) - Bel Air, Maryland, USA - NOV 6, 2004
10.31.04 750ml bottle at Heavyweight open house thanks to jimmack04. Blonde indeed with a massive head. I was lucky enough to get the spoils of the end of the bottle and all the spicy and fragrant yeasty bits. A real gem, this beer gets little attention despite being relatively easy to find. A prototypical tripel, the nose and palate are flush with Belgian yeasts, corriander and spice, and grapefruit hints to round it out. Very well balanced if not exciting, I could drink this every day.

AndersR (195) - Århus, DENMARK - NOV 5, 2004
.25 l bottle. Very pleasant aroma with hints of citrus, wehat and yeast. Thick lasting head. Cloudy pale orange color. Aroma is sharp acidic at first, then opens to a complex flavor with fruits, wheat and yeast. Dry finish. A spendid blonde.

snoot (286) - Anaheim, California, USA - NOV 4, 2004
Pours crystal clear golden, huge rocky white head. A lot of yeast in the aroma, also some pears and a little hint of orange. Slightly sour for a tripel, nice dry finish. Solid beer.

5000 (6300) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - OCT 30, 2004
Bottle pours a cloudy pale golden, large fluffy white head, super sticky lacing, with fairly active carbonation.   Yeasty, earthy, citrusy, and some spices on the nose.   Quite yeasty up front, slightly sour, with some spices.   Good body, wheaty mouthfeel.   Finishes musty/earthy, slightly dry, minor bitterness, with subtle spices.   Nothing exceptional, but quite solid.

BeerAteHer (384) - St. Paul, Minnesota, USA - OCT 8, 2004
UPDATED: OCT 9, 2004 This one has a great pour! Extremely thick head that lasts, looks like a blonde in a bathtub playing with her rubber duckie. . Okey dokey, you get top notch appearance rating. Now to aroma … unfortunately disappointing – way too much like a cheap wheat beer. I hope it doesn’t _taste_ like a wheat beer. No it doesn’t. This is really a great beer, even among its Belgian peers! The carbonation kicks in and STAYS (I personally prefer an ultimate carbonation, as I believe yet another excuse to drink beer can be: it has so many bubbles that for indigestion you don’t have to worry about the sodium in Alka Seltzer!) Back to Moinette, the flavor is intensely malty and quite positive. But now the cheap yeastiness comes back in the aftertaste … Quite a kaleidoscope on the palette, I must say. What I can say is that this really seems to be a great brewery – I think though that I will try some of their other, filtered offerings, as this is simply too much like “wheat beer”.

jimmack (1223) - Nutley, New Jersey, USA - OCT 5, 2004
Hazy golden color with a huge frothy white head. You can tell this is a Belgian just by the aroma. Very earthy, yeasty aroma that I love. Flavor of yeast, spices (coriander, pepper) and hops. Drier than expected but with a slightly sweet finish. This is a great beer.

WabashMan (1018) - Noblesville, Indiana, USA - SEP 28, 2004
Dupont produces some very nice brews, and this is no exception. Lovely medium gold color and somewhat thin white head. Crisp, peppery, some fruit notes, and a long aftertaste. A nice tripel!

easier smoother drink than their Saisons. Satisfying. Pure Belgium, with apricot and lemon, medium mouthfeel. Nice blond white and lacing. Peppery, not too sour nor sweet, more malty and vanilla, some nutmeg. perhaps shelved long?
