Disappointing for a triple. Honeysuckle to the nose with matching hue and huge head also matched by its lacing. But the taaste lacks in the alcohol and sensation of most triples. Very little taste in fact, until the bitter finish.

Full blond color and big white foam. Honey in the nose and also hints of malts and fresh herbs. Smooth round taste, soft yeaty accent and fine dosis of spices and hops. Nice bitterness in the finsh.

Storm (2684) - Amager, DENMARK - AUG 22, 2005
25 cl bottle. Yeast in bottom. Pale yellow colour with a fantastic creamy foam. Some sour aroma with hints of the yeast. Good big mouthfull, spicy and complexity in the taste, that ends up in a sour and dry way.

Heatwaves (54) - Orange, California, USA - AUG 9, 2005
Pours like a little muddy, hazy pee pee. Nice cloudy complexion with a head that lasted longer than most. The aroma was very different and strong. The scents were intense with chardonnay grapes and apples. The first taste was highly, highly carbonated, but this subsided with each sip and as it warmed up. (The taste was also better as it warmed.) The flavor was different that what I’m used to, but very appealing just the same. Very smooth and the flavor was both yeast and malty for me. The malt flavors suprised me as this is such a light colored beer. Overall, a very good beer. I’d drink it again... even if it looked like pee pee.

wnhay (722) - Princeton, New Jersey, USA - AUG 8, 2005
Poured golden with a thick white head. Way too foamy in my opinion. Aroma was interesting with lemon, apricot, apple and cinnamon. Good taste but rough mouthfeel. It was fine, but the mouthfeel was just to harsh for my taste.

Massively carbonated. Towering meringue like off-white head that threatens to overflow my glass long after the pour. Hazy golden body. The aroma is fruity, floral (perfume), and lightly spicy. The flavor of the foam (it still has not subsided enough for me to get a proper drink) is very spicy and bitter. Pepper and a metallic bitterness dominate. Now on to the flavor of the actial liquid, similar to the foam without the harsh metallic bitterness. A bit nutty and sweet. All of the flavors seem to stand-alone and never join with the others to make a concertated effort to coalace into something greater than the sum. The body is not as fizzy as the visibly evident carbonation would have led me to believe. In the end not one of my favorite tripels.

mreeves (276) - Sammamish, Washington, USA - JUL 19, 2005
A tangy, effervescent tripel. Loose bubbles and vigorous carbonation. Light golden color, sourish aroma and flavor. Warming effect from the alcohol, with a dryish finish. A nice tripel.

pilsnerrogge (2816) - Finspång, SWEDEN - JUL 18, 2005
Hazy, golden colour. Huge, fluffy head. Yeast and citrus aroma. Sweet, alcohol-bitter flavour. A drinkable Triple, but I’ve had better.

JonMoore (2062) - Loughborough, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - JUL 13, 2005
Very slightly hazy gold colour with a large white head. Sweet, fruity, spicey, alcohol and yeasty aroma. Similar for the taste. Medium bodied, quite highly carbonated. Good tripel.

PorterPounder (7303) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - JUL 8, 2005
Habersham Beverage Warehouse, Savannah, Ga - 11.2 oz bottle. Pours a hazy medium golden with a fluffy white, bubbly head. Slight, fruity, lemony aroma with a faint whiff of alcohol. Tart flavor, some lemon notes, bubble gum, brief hint of bananas and some yeast. Spritzy mouthfeel, appropriate fo rthe style. Not the best Tripel, but overall decent.
