maeib (8749) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - JUN 26, 2005
Bottled. A straw blonde coloured tripel with a thick white head and nice lacing. The aroma is spicy, peppery and yeasty. The taste is more of the same and there is a hint of lemon in the finish. A really nic quite full bodied and not overcomplicated tripel.

erway (1004) - Albuquerque, New Mexico, USA - JUN 18, 2005
Loose bubbly head over a med. golden beer. Heavy honey-like nose with hints of ginger and black pepper. HIoney sweet flavors with some grassy hops but it is fairly oxidized. A little heavy for the styl and not very refined.

MiP (14563) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - JUN 14, 2005
Bottle. Clear golden colour. Big foamy head which is quite stable. Very metallic aroma. Flavour starts of with vegetable, asparagus, rurns astringent and then back to asparagus. Has a hint of fruit well hidden behind a very bad smell and taste. Warming alcohol aftertaste.

#400: I’m hoping for something really good for this milestone. But, oh well. It started out promising, delightful aromas of pears, pineapple, oak, bubblegum, very nice; the flavor, though, is flat, some fruity sweetness ending in a dryish, acidic tartness; hints of apple and pear, a tad spicy and vaguely peppery, but there just so subtle for the style, quite boring. The flavor just don’t hold up to the aroma; this is a watery and weak triple.

Cornfield (5570) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - JUN 6, 2005
This is a light-bodied, golden drink with a tall, rocky white head that coats the glass as the drinks goes down. The aroma is flowery with hops over a grassy malt body and some yeasty fruitiness. Light and fruity in the mouth, the stronger ABV isn’t detectable until the dry, yet fruity, finish. Good good.

Miguel (1181) - Saint-Ours, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 3, 2005
Mondial de la Bière de Montréal 2005. Épices, esters de fruits, acidité. Peut-être pas le bon échantillon, mais l’acidité l’emportait trop à mon goût pour ce style.

Papsoe (25069) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - MAY 25, 2005
(Bottle 25 cl) Nice medium golden with a frothy head. Some yeast in the nose, but the hoppy, dry floral notes are predominant. Decent although not an outstanding Tripel. 100795

bu11zeye (12367) - Frisco (Dallas), Texas, USA - MAY 21, 2005
(Bottle) Pours a lightly cloudy yellow body with a rocky egg-white head. Aroma of grass, musty leaves, and spicies. Light malt flavor with lemon. Clean and refreshing; great summer brew!

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 (5787) - 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.
