aroma: floral, caramel, licorice, apparenza: golden, cloudy, white foam, gusto: lightly bitter, medium sweetness, palato: medium body, slick feel, lively, long finish, lo stile tripel si riconosce subito giŕ dall’odore del tappo..piů approfonditamente si avvertono forti sentori floreali piů che maltati pribabilmente dovuti ai lieviti,forse anche liquirizia,in ogni caso aroma piacevole..gusto dolce,sbilanciato a favore della componente maltata col luppolo che si fa sentire poco..anche il finale č piů maltato che luppolato e abbastanza dolce..birra non eccezzionale ma sicuramente buona e piacevole da bere! (p.s. prima birra belga ad Aachen!)

suurjuust (1217) - ESTONIA - DEC 17, 2014
Hazy golden yellow, medium white head with soapy retention. Spicy, malty, slightly citric-lemony nose. Flavor is malts, spice notes, hops, toasty notes, caramel notes and alcohol. Finishes with alcohol, spice and hops. Pretty smooth stuff.

Alengrin (2425) - BELGIUM - DEC 16, 2014
The tripel in this series, nowadays called Petrus Gouden Tripel; hazy golden blonde, thick frothy head; malt sweet character, some estery fruitiness, honeyish touch, iron, a lot of carbonation (actually somewhat overcarbonated for the style); sweet in a dull kind of way, grainy, yeasty, sourish touch, mild grassy hops in the finish but not nearly enough to balance out the sweetness. Clearly a tripel aimed at a wide audience but too sweet and bland for my taste, there are many more interesting examples of the style around in Belgium alone.

patricks110 (1753) - Alberta, CANADA - DEC 15, 2014
Pours out a hazy straw colour with a huge puffy head. The nose is ripe with yeasty aromas as well as lemon zest, earthy and bready notes as well as light spice aromas. Fruity and light in the middle with a sweet musty malt flavour that is unusual . Earthy malts and a finish with light citrus zest and a bit of booziness.

adster (437) - HUNGARY - NOV 29, 2014
Teaszínű test, krémes habpaplan, autentikus tripel-illatok, melyek között a malátásan édeskés, fanyar élesztős aromák viszik a prímet, amikhez később a jól ismert marcipános árnyalat is csatlakozik. Selymes zamatai szerényen kenődnek el a nyelvünkön, itt-ott lógnak ki kicsit a kartonosan száraz, illetve néhol élesen alkoholos, zöldséges ízjegyek. Kissé nyers az összhatás, elnézően kortyolgatva azonban csalódást semmiképpen nem okoz.

Golden colour; sparkling like champagne both with fluffy and persistent foam. Smell of hops, light orange. Sweetness followed by final light bitterness.

ClaudeB04 (169) - Dudelange, LUXEMBOURG - NOV 19, 2014
Golden, huge lasting head. Rather weak taste, some fruity notes with some yeast, no finish, disappointing beer.

Alusmamuts (493) - LATVIA - NOV 17, 2014
Golden clear with rich white head. Sweet yeasty aroma with honey notes. Taste not so rich. Lasting honey sweetness on the tongue tip, rough remaining bitterness later.

revolution2718 (262) - New Jersey, USA - NOV 11, 2014
Pours a hazy golden with a big fluffy head. Nose is Belgian yeasty, lemon, earthy, a bit of bready malty. Taste is fruity yeast ester, nothing overly distinct, on the sweet side, musty, a bit earthy on the finish. It's ok, but too sweet and I don't love the yeast character.
