pilsnerrogge (2745) - Finspång, SWEDEN - JUL 16, 2005
Cloudy golden with a large head. Excellent lacing. Somewhat fruity and yeasty aroma with notes of toffee. A well-balanced Tripel with long, pleasant bitterness.

From a 330 ml bottle. Light gold with some haze. The aroma is herbal with some flowers and tart cherries. There is also some earthy undertones of moss. The taste has some hay and dry champagne. There is also a little bit of apples and some light notes of herbs. This is a refreshing and dry version of a tripel. Nicely done.

hughie (3996) - Bedford, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - JUN 19, 2005
Yes, great head and typical Belgian aroma. And I agree that there are lots of incredibly subtle things going on in there. Personally I don’t really like the overwhelming alcohol flavour. Sorry.

BierBauch (784) - Cape Coral Waterfront Wonderland, Florida, USA - JUN 16, 2005
750ml Corked 2004 Very nice Tripel. Slightly less than clear with an enormous head that’s billowy like a cumulous cloud and lasts all day. Aroma of yeast and spices, light sourness, lemon, faint barnyark funkiness, coriander and pepper. Medium bodied, smooth a bit dry in finish. Spicy fruity flavor, light hop notes and bitterness, some fruit light tartness. Overall a really nicely rounded Tripel.

schuimkroaat (427) - Leuven, BELGIUM - JUN 13, 2005
33 cl bottle, bbe Aug 2007. Apricot coloured, the rest of its appearance somehow also reminds of apricot skin. Small but stable snow white head which adheres well to the glass, leaving fine lace. Estery, fruity nose: banana, a hint of orange zest, definitely some caramel. Complex and rich, yet very mellow and round taste: malty sweetish - fruity sourish, flowing into orange zest into very present and pleasant, but not assertive, aromatic hops in the end and in the relatively long aftertaste. You never prove the 8.5% vol. alc.

A surprisingly good blonde - fresh, yeasty and well realised, with a definite alcohol presence that is not astringent at all. Typical fizzy palate is not irritating as so many are. Finishing charcters of fresh hops and the vaguest hint of citrus.

dwyerpg (5220) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - JUN 8, 2005
I bought this on the word that it was better than Karmaliet, but its not. Looks like a typical belgian. Hoppy, delicate start with a slight bite. What I noticed most about this guy is how fast the taste dissipates. Disappointing for its high price. It also gets almost rank as it gets warmer. A below par tripel in my opinion.

NYHarvey (2153) - New York, New York, USA - JUN 7, 2005
Decent beer with some truly unusual tastes in both the fore abd after. I shared this with a friend that mostly drinks macros and he liked it a great deal more than I did. There is something sharp and dry in the taste that you don’t get out of most Belgians. Very different.

Papsoe (25063) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - MAY 24, 2005
(Bottle 25 cl) Originally just known as "Moinette II". Orangey golden beer with a huge head. Lots of yesty sediment. Strong and potent in both body and alcohol with a dry hoppiness. We’re talking Orval-territory although far from the same complexity. 270695
