patrick767 (3584) - fort wayne, Indiana, USA - NOV 27, 2008
bottle - Pours hazy gold with almost no head and very fine suspended yeast. It smells mainly of yeast and citrus. The flavor is sweet and citrus-laden with obvious yeast presence. It finishes smoothly and the alcohol content is mostly buried. Solid.

ChainGangGuy (4391) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - MAY 27, 2008
Appearance: Pours a clear, deep yellow body with a small, bubbly, white head. Smell: Aroma is a mishmash of notes smelling of pale malts, banana, clove, yeast, candi sugar, sauvignon blanc, and ginger. There ya go! Taste: Candyish palt maltiness with minor tastes of banana and clove. Splash of white wine. Slight yeastiness. No apparent bitterness. Remains sweet until the very tailend of the finish. Lingering taste of ginger. Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied. Medium carbonation. Slight stickiness to the mouthfeel. Drinkability: Good, though a bit on the sweeter side for tripels. Id certainly be up for another.

CaptainCougar (7132) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - MAY 24, 2008
Pours a slightly hazy golden with a thin ring of small-bubbled wispy-white head. Aroma of orange citrus and pale malts with some phenols. Body starts fairly full and viscous with some bready yeasty and sweet malt and honey notes along with a touch of light fruity flavors before a warming finish. Has some decent authenticity but needs more balance.

EithCubes (5002) - New Jersey, USA - JAN 19, 2008
Bottle. Sweetish vanilla and yeast aroma, also a good deal of honey and wood, resolving to a nice bready malt. Pale golden pour with soapy white head. Taste is too sweet, yet not quite cloying, with a bready dryish aftertaste and vague shivs of fruit. Clove notes are nice and rounded, but there a very slight tendency toward staleness, with a nice, tingling mf and medium body. Honey, vanilla, and yeast. Not as harshly alcoholic as I have come to know tripels, but then again, all the more drinkable. Think Id like this with Thai food. In short, smooth and above average, but not by much.

StFun (567) - Indiana, USA - JAN 16, 2008
some fruit in the aroma, but little palate. very yeasty and hoppy. i like oaken barrel, but this just wasnt for me.

TheBeerOrg (2145) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - JAN 13, 2008
On tap at Rich Os - Pours burnished golden with a mostly receding wispy off-white head. Aroma of pineapple, banana, apricot and bubble gum. Taste is fruity and estery with many of the aromatic notes combined with a gentle candi sugar sweetness. Mouthfeel is medium to full bodied with lush carbonation. A well done tripel, one of the better American examples.

Optigon (562) - Bloomington, Indiana, USA - JAN 4, 2008
Pours yellow, clear, with very little head. Aroma is rather grassy. Flavor is grassy with some qualities of light fruit and yeast. Moderate mouth feel. Not a bad beer all around, although it feels more like a Vienna or a Dortmunder to me than a Tripel.
