TheBeerOrg (2145) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - MAY 15, 2005
UPDATED: NOV 4, 2005 Pours light golden with a thick, foamy, vigorous head. Appearance is every bit as good as the picture. Aroma is bubble gum, banana, spicy yeast. Taste is pretty much all yeast characteristics with some candi sugar bumping up the gravity. Fairly one dimensional. Yeast is the most important element of Belgians, and I don’t care for this one. Medium bodied and fizzy. Finishes lightly sweet with a spicy yeast tang. Overcarbonated for my tastes. This gives me burps like Miller Lite. I’d let it sit out for 10-15 minutes before drinking it. Most likely the cheapest Belgium triple in Atlanta. $1.89/bottle.

FROTHINGSLOSH (6484) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 11, 2005
UPDATED: JUN 26, 2006 I have only tried this a couple of times over the years. It is in essence a decent but not noteworthy tripel. Sampled from an 11.2 oz brown bottle this beer pours a cloudy bright golden color with a huge white head. The aroma is sweet, yeasty, spicy and has strong lemon scent. The flavor is lemony and yeasty with a sharp spicy hop profile. The finish is fairly dry.

ChillCoat (1029) - Concord, California, USA - MAR 18, 2005
Bottled. Hazy yellow with a stiff egg-white foam head that threatened to spill over the glass. Yeasty aroma. Flavors of rock candy, yeast, maybe pears. Lingering malt aftertaste.

Good basic tripel that is not very tripel like. Much closer to a Golden. Some light fruit grapish in quality with candy sugar and slight sour notes.

TBone (15710) - Pori, FINLAND - FEB 17, 2005
Bottled 25cl (BB 07/2006)
Hazy golden color with thick foamy white head, lace. Mild nose has citrus and some fruity sweetness. Crisp carbonation. Attacking citric flavor with some bitterness and alcoholic warming in the aftertaste. I can trace some sweet notes also underlying there. Quite basic Belgium, drinkable but not very complex.

Dogbrick (11061) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - FEB 10, 2005
This beer kind of strikes me as a "beginnerís Belgian". Pours a cloudy dark yellow color with a thick and foamy white head. Decent lacing. Champagne-like aroma with some fruit and yeast. Medium-bodied with a pleasantly fruity flavor, along with some yeast, pepper and light hops. The finish is citrusy and lightly spiced. The beer is well done, and despite not being very complex it is a pretty tasty brew.

RateandPillage (426) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - JAN 30, 2005
Pours a cloudy yellow color with lots of white head. Citrusy, spicy aroma. Very dry flavor, lots of carbonation. Reminded me of a dry champagne. Not my favorite Tripel, but decent.
