slowrunner77 (10077) - Reno, Nevada, USA - FEB 1, 2016
Big head and carbonation in this one. Fruity and yeasty, with a bit of sharpness to it, and a little more musty/dusty than I care for. One timer.

stevoj (3919) - Boise, Idaho, USA - JAN 31, 2016
Bottle from Boise Co-op. Nice pour, with huge fluffy head, cloudy golden body. Earthy, musty aroma, bready, medium weight. Taste is more of the same aroma characteristics, mild spicy bite. Not one of the best Belgian tripels, but body is right on, a flaw I’ve found with a lot of American tripels.

nearbeer (4872) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - JAN 14, 2016
330 ml. Mostly clear amber with a sticky cobweb of foam on top. Nose is earthy honey with the beeswax, menthol, lemongrass and toasted maize. Tastes of mild tea with lemon and a touch of honey, booze, and toasted maize. Light medium body has low-medium carbonation and a nice balance. Seems like a Lithuanian style Tripel.

superspak (4660) - Michigan, USA - DEC 23, 2015
UPDATED: DEC 25, 2015 750 ml bottle into chalice, best before 5/2017. Pours slightly hazy/cloudy deep golden yellow color with a 1-2 finger dense and fluffy off white head with great retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lasts. Great dense soapy lacing clings around the glass, with a good amount of streaming carbonation retaining the head. Aromas of big lemon, apricot, melon, pear, apple, white grape, pepper, honey, cracker, biscuit, herbal, floral, grass, and yeast earthiness. Very nice aromas with good balance and complexity of fruity/spicy yeast and moderate pale malt notes; with great strength. Taste of big lemon, apricot, melon, pear, apple, white grape, pepper, honey, cracker, biscuit, herbal, floral, grass, and yeast earthiness. Moderate amount of herbal/peppery yeast spiciness on the finish; with lingering notes of lemon, apricot, melon, pear, apple, grape, pepper, honey, cracker, biscuit, and herbal/floral/yeast earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Damn nice complexity, robustness, and balance of fruity/spicy yeast and moderate pale malt flavors; with a great malt/yeast spiciness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Moderate dryness from carbonation and yeast spiciness as well. Medium-high carbonation and medium body; with a very smooth, moderately crisp, and lightly grainy/bready mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with only a light warmth lingering after the finish. Overall this is an excellent Tripel style. All around great complexity, robustness ,and balance of fruity/spicy yeast and moderate pale malt flavors; and very smooth and crisp to sip on for the big ABV. A very enjoyable offering.
