UPDATED: MAR 20, 2006 Light copper almost gold color that is very clear with a huge white head. Very sweet aroma of bananas, clove and peaches. The taste is dry with bread, peach peels and some cinnamon spice. Thin body for a tripel. I like this one as it is very drinkable.

Lite fruit grape citrus and spice nose with a clean soft malt body.Big fluffy head with a good release of gases. Vanilla and herbal notes on balance with atouch of sweetness on the finish.

dortmunder (961) - Herdecke, GERMANY - FEB 26, 2005
Bottled. Golden colour. Big,lasting head. Fruity, slightly yeasty aroma. Sweet, fruity, slightly spicy, yeasty flavour. Decent tripel, but nothing special and maybe a bit on the less complex side of tripels. Goes down easily, but leaves no lastijng impression.

5000 (6599) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - FEB 11, 2005
Bottle pours pale golden, large white frothy head, sporatic lacing, with lively carbonation.   Musty aroma, slightly yeasty, with a slightly sweet herbish note.   Quite musty up front, semi-sweet, with that same herbish nose on the tongue.   Doesn’t seem as much of a Tripel to me but perhaps more like a Leute Bok.   Medium body and mouthfeel.   Very musty finish, lingering sweetness, with a bit more Tripel like thickness at the end.   Good, albeit not what I would really consider a Tripel.   Meh, who cares what I think anyways... my ding ding dong.

33cl. I’ve had this one for close to 2 years I think. Lots of protein in the bottle. Super chunky pour, even leaving behind just shy of half the bottle. Very carbonated, but head. Lemony spicy aroma. Perfumey. This drinking experience seems a bit like Dulle Teve LIGHT! Decent triple, with some complexity in the finish...too bad about all the protein.

This is a nice light tiple. Appearance is nice as it pours a golden color with a large off white creamy head. Body has particulate matter due to bottle conditioning. Aroma is yeasty with hints of floral hops and malt. Flavor is sl. sweet initially, yeasty, some citrus with a nice and balanced dry finish. Not a bad beer.

HopsformyHips (113) - Memphis, Tennessee, USA - DEC 18, 2004
Creamy medium head with moderate lacing on a golden orange pour. Smells very nice and light. Not to heavy on anything, a little fruity, floral nose with a nice malty base. Smooth sweet at the intial with a hop kick at the end. Nothing too intense at any point. Well balanced. Effervescent palate but medium bodied. Alcohol well masked. Mild and relaxing brew. Not too contemplative.

I didnt like it...but dont let that dissuade you from trying it... mine was lumpy (yes that is right I said lumpy) I dont know if it is supposed to be lumpy not, but all the ones where i bought it were cottage cheesy and even up at rozi’s they were all chunky too!... Maybe it is supposed to be "textured" but not for me. put a warning on the label or something!

igel (196) - New Mexico, USA - DEC 1, 2004
Amber/orange color, transparent, light carbonation and an off-white head. Retention is low and lace is clingy. I miss judged my pour and got some large chunks whirling around. Aroma is tart and yeasty and grassy. Flavor is lightly sweet at the start with a dry slightly tart finish. Peppery attributes dominate the character of the taste. A tripel in the Westmalle tradition, but not as thick and intense. Mouthfeel is medium bodied and highly effervescent. Light hop bite. I fail to see any complexity of Pater, but it is an enjoyable version of a tripel.
