pintbypint (2757) - Edmonton, Alberta, - NOV 18, 2005
250ml brown bottle. Poured golden, huge head with a dense centre and soapy edges. Aroma is sweet and floral, lemon notes, pears and trace alcohol. Fruity in the mouth, slight spice, alcohol is there but not overwhelming. Finishes with a good hoppy bite. Prickly carbonation, a tad too much, otherwise pleasant.

mgajdaczewa (727) - Katowice, POLAND - MAR 29, 2015
W aromacie pustawe, lekko przyprawowo - estrowe, nieco zbożowe. W smaku umiarkowanie pełne, przyprawy, lekki kwasek, dobrze ukryty alkohol. Mało się tu dzieje i jest nudno.

MikaLukanainen (90) - POLAND - MAR 28, 2015
Pours golden colour with a huge but rather ugly head. Aroma of citrus, yeast, grain and some banana - the bouquet is allright but the intensity definitely too low. The taste - a bit too watery, grain and lemon notes with some pepper in the background and quite decent bitterness. Alcohol is well hidden. Good beer, drinkable but - due to relatively low intensity of flavours - a bit too ordinary.

rami_pl (240) - Warszawa, POLAND - MAR 26, 2015
Butelka, warka Lidlowa - 05/02/18. Piana wysoka, szybko opadajaca, piwo lekko opalizujace, bardzo jasne, zolte. praktycznie brak drozdzy na dnie butelki. Aromat... no niby triplowy, ale ledwo wyczuwalny - troche przyprawowosci, troszle owocow kwaskowatych jasnych, jakies nuty sladowe kwiatowe. smak nieco lepiej - jest przyprawowosc, jest troche goryczki lekkiej, jest lekka owocowosc... w ustach malo ciala, srednie albo i mniej wysycenie. wodnisty. jeden z gorszych tripli jakie pilem. Niby nie ma wad zadnych konkretnych poza ta wodnistoscia, problem w tym, ze jest nijaki.

mariuszek (249) - Gdynia, POLAND - MAR 24, 2015
Pale golden color, nice head and lacing. Aroma of barnyard, some sweet malt, fruits, spices. Taste similar, medium body, some alcohol abd sourness on finish.

tfredvik (1277) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAR 1, 2015
Clear, medium golden body with a white, long-lived head that ends up as a layer after quite some time, good lacing. Strong aroma of Belgian yeast, spices, pale malts, lightly ripe fruits (including hints of apple), and vanilla in the back. The fairly strong flavour follows the aroma, with additional notes of alcohol. Light to moderate sweet and light to moderate bitter taste. Dry mouthfeel and lively carbonation. A good one.

Ysok02 (179) - MOns, BELGIUM - FEB 24, 2015
Robe blonde reflets dorés, belle mousse. Nez sur les agrumes, le houblon, une touche pétrolée, herbe sèche. Bouche à l’attaque ample, une belle mousse crémeuse, du fruit, de la fraîcheur et de l’élégance. A nouveau une triple sur l’élégance.

agent_persik (488) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - FEB 21, 2015
Hazy pale golden color, huge white head. Aroma of malt, wheat, citrus, grassy hops, hint of spices. Dry is sweet and lightly dry with mildly bitter hoppy finish and spicy aftertaste. Thin body and fizzy carbonation. Decent tripel, a bit thin but quite drinkable.

Deu (864) - Nantes, FRANCE - FEB 19, 2015
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.

hohops (434) - Kent, ENGLAND - FEB 14, 2015
Appearance is golden, a solid one finger white head, plenty of bubbles rising. Aroma- spice, fruity, sweet banana, caramel hints. Taste- quite hoppy, medium to full mouthfeel, banana, honey, sugary sweetness, creamy malt, bittersweet finish. Good.

ClubGonzo (4444) - Bergen, NORWAY - FEB 6, 2015
Bottle. Pours a crystal clear golden body with a medium creamy white head. Nose is white candi sugars, floral honey tones, pale malts and hints of straw and marzipan. Taste is white candi sugars, straw, pale malts, marzipan and hints of alcohol, honey and floral tones with faint traces of sulfur. Medium body and carbonation. A pretty middle-of-the-road tripel, not fantastic but not bad either. On the other hand, the tripel is a hard genre to steer out of the style-correct-but-a-bit-boring landscape.
