PrinceofNessus (236) - Norman, Oklahoma, USA - OCT 17, 2003
Smells of esters, a certain sharpness in the aroma, citrusy, corriander, orange peel, soft yellow appearence, with a white head. a slightly yeasty acidic flavor, corriander and citrus. nice palate, no particular weaknesses, much like a strong wit.

lemonlovr (190) - Orland Park, Illinois, USA - OCT 16, 2003
Smells of yeast, citrus, coriander, and a bit of banana. Appearance is good: hazy golden yellow with a medium quickly dissapating head. Flavor is reminiscent of a non-wheaty strong witbier. Dominated by a citrusy coriandery flavor.

3fourths (7799) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - OCT 13, 2003
UPDATED: DEC 19, 2012 Murky soft yellow with yeast particles floating in abundance. Foamy white head sits on top, and it produces an aroma which is best described as yeasty lemon and acidic. Quite a strong smell. The mouthfeel contrasts the strong aroma with its smoothness, and the flavor of coriander, orange peel and lemon peel is extremely well done. Prickly and carbonated on the tongue, just as I like, with a strong alcohol finish mixed with a burst of banana right at the end. Wondeful tripel.

frylock (1135) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - OCT 4, 2003
Golden color, big fluffy white head. Large yeast deposits. Doughy, yeasty, almost salty aroma. Flavor starts with a slight sweetness, has some yeasty flavors, and a good hop flavor in the finish. Very drinkable tripel.

Drew (2411) - Kent, Ohio, USA - SEP 8, 2003
This beer looked absolutely fantastic; glowing golden/orange body with some sediment swirling about, big fluffy head, excellent lacing. Taste was sweet and creamy down the middle with light a light spiceyness along the edges. Very little alcohol taste, some candy sweetness as it warmed. Liked it a lot.

skortila (4347) - Baarn, NETHERLANDS - JUL 5, 2003
Spicy pepper aroma. Yellow coloured, cloudy, good head. Spicy pepper taste, bit sour. Okay, but a bit one-dimensional.

   AROMA 7/10   APPEARANCE 3/5   TASTE 7/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 15/20
caesar (4716) - Bunnik/Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - JUL 4, 2003
Slightly hazy yellow color, with an initially large frothy head, later on small but lasting head. Peppery and spicy aroma. One-way spicy taste. Decent triple, but quite heavy on the stomach and not as refreshing as i like my triple to be.

3.7
   AROMA 7/10   APPEARANCE 4/5   TASTE 7/10   PALATE 4/5   OVERALL 15/20
fraternie (806) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUL 2, 2003
Golden body, large frothy head. Light floral/citrus aroma. Malt is a bit thin, soft mouthfeel, orange, light floral notes. Finish is moderately acidic, some spice. Easy drinking, but not as flavorful or complex as I look for in a tripel, seems a bit watered down.

bob32256 (171) - Jacksonville, Florida, USA - JUN 15, 2003
Nice amber color, a little darker than most ales; very smooth taste; probably the best ale flavor I've tried

hotstuff (3953) - Indiana, USA - JUN 12, 2003
When this brew was poured it had a large white head that consisted of fine-medium bubbles. The body was gold and the lacing was poor. There was some carbonation observed with this brew. The aroma was both spicy and fruity. This brew had a smooth taste to it with a slight bitterness noted.
