JohnGalt1 (653) - , Idaho, USA - AUG 14, 2013
Got this from the COOP a week or so ago.. I think I paid about $8ish.. Pours clear dark straw golden... white head rises and dies back almost as quickly.. only okay spotty lacing for the glass. Nose is decent for an "American Belgian Triple"... husky pale malts are the big player with some lite apricot and pronounced clovey/peppery phenols.. With warmth the spicy notes really light up and go to the front. Flavor is not as integrated... okay balance between the spicy phenols and fruity notes... should have some citrus esters, instead a bit of apricot... with warmth, the spiciness really dominates... too much... Definitely "American" but is still okay... Dial in the yeasty components and I believe this could be a winner... With warmth the EtOH really blooms... drink it colder for the time being. Medium/lite body could be a bit lighter with a more refined bubble... the carbonation is good but has a bit of a bite to it that shouldn’t be there. Overall, I love a good tripel, and this hits the mark but need some refinement... it is pretty harsh right now... Dial it down and see where the things land.

On tap at Stateside, pours a clear golden with a small white head. Aroma is rather skunky and herbal, with phenols, apple and caramel. Flavour is very sweet, with caramelized apple, alcohol, and bready notes. About as far away from an authentic tripel as possible. Not my thing at all.

fiulijn (15436) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 24, 2014
Bottle from 16th Street Liquor, West Vancouver
Cloudy golden color with small head. Delicate fruit aroma, with hints of malt. Good body structure, moderate sweetness, some malt flavour, some spicy character, and light fruity touch; correct bitterness.
Clean, pleasant.

Lagerboy (1418) - British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 19, 2014
Bomber. Mostly clear orange yellow, foamy white head settles quickly and mostly fades. Spicy fruity yeast aroma. Initial taste is a spicy hot pepper yeasty bite, giving way to moderately sweet malts, bright fruits, slick and boozy. Average carbonation, light-medium bodied, moderately hopped. Tart citric and alcohol finish. NFL (Not For Lagerboys)

skoisirius (1814) - Earth, Washington, USA - JAN 2, 2014
Bomber. Great cloudy golden pour with a frothy white head. Hints of Belgian sugars and grains on the nose. Touches of apples and pear in the front, grains in the middle, and a bit of hops in the rear. Good, not outstanding.

Light wheat aroma, more what you’d expect from a wit than a tripel, but hey we’ll go with it. Golden colour with a hint of haziness. Clean, and lightly hoppy with a slightly bitter finish. While rather nice I think the Washington State addiction for hops may have caused them to veer too far from the style they were going for.

Smurf2055 (1400) - Seattle, Washington, USA - SEP 30, 2013
Pours hazy blond with a finger white head. Smell huge banana, clove, belgian yeast. Taste smooth belgian candi sugar, bit of booze, lots of clove. Med body, easy drinking. Really good.

5000 (6299) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - SEP 20, 2013
Bottle:   Golden hued straw, light haze, moderate to large frothy white head, nice lacing.   Soft bready nose, light melon and fruitiness.   Similar on the tongue, very light for a Tripel.   Very pale breadiness, a little yeasty, some melon.   Not as fruity as the nose suggested.   Average body and mouthfeel.   Pale breadiness lingers.   A little ashy on the finish.   Softer example than most.

stantheman (680) - British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 7, 2013
UPDATED: SEP 8, 2013 On tap at St Augustine’s on The Drive in Vancouver. A pale amber with a maximum liquid pour in their standard sleeve, so not much head or nose. Haven’t sampled tripels in awhile, so my buds may be off kilter, but initial impressions are so so.

Meh. Drinkable, but unexciting. Left the last third in the glass and moved on.

stevoj (2488) - Boise, Idaho, USA - AUG 30, 2013
An average tripel, lacking the smooth, velvety texture and fluffy head of the Belgian varieties. Lagerish hop character, slightly hazy gold color. Hop bite detracts from should be some smooth, spiciness.
