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.

robertsreality (2460) - Minnesota, USA - NOV 8, 2004
Orange Coloring. White Head. Definite Alcohol Presence.. Tart and Spicey.. Not too Bad Overall.

obisbeer (565) - Barcelona, SPAIN - NOV 6, 2004
Golden brown w/small head. Funky barnyard, citrus, spice and vanilla nose. Med weight w/sour dry finish. Yeast toffee, spice, vanilla, wood, and honey on the palate. Strange triple!

ElGaucho (2263) - Minnetonka, Minnesota, USA - NOV 5, 2004
Rich caramel, Belgian-style aroma. Particalia evident. Smallish head but lasting. White to off-white head. Flavor is subtle, but nice. Fairly highly carbonated.

badgerben (4534) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - OCT 31, 2004
Cloudy amber color with a medium head. Sweet aroma. Malty taste with some banana, but a strong musty character that was a bit much off the deep end.

pivo (2610) - GERMANY - OCT 31, 2004
Yeasty lightly fruity nose (banana), gold color, sticky head. Nice creamy malt body full of vanilla flavors. Some citrus in the middle, not so bitter or spicy end. Thinish. Ok balance. Consistenly decent for this brewer, though not that special.

footbalm (1219) - Western Minneapolis Suburbs, Minnesota, USA - OCT 31, 2004
Golden orange brew somewhat cloudy and a nice layer of creamy head.Has a funky sweet yet acrid nose and a little fruity spice.But there was something about the aroma that bugged me,too musty.Flavor was a little like dirty underwear tea.The musk flavor here was a real turnoff.

Joeh (2049) - Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - OCT 15, 2004
Bottle bought in Belgium. Fairly yeasty, bland triple. Some spices, but not a lot going on. Pretty good, and the alcohol is well hidden.

rudolf (2342) - Buffalo, New York, USA - SEP 19, 2004
Nice orange with a beautiful, pillowy head. Aroma is bananna and yeast, some spiciness. Tart & yeasty, some earthiness. Well spiced but a bit light for me.

marcus (6983) - Sacramento, California, USA - AUG 27, 2004
Pours with a large off-white head, eliciting a rich aroma. The flavor is classic tripel with a mellow, pleasurable aftertaste.
