Maria (10190) - Thisted, DENMARK - APR 1, 2007
Golden, slightly hazy with a nice head. The aroma is malty and spicy. The flavour is citrussy with notes of caramel and spice. The alcohol is too dominant and spoils IMO the overall impression.

Rune (10000) - Tromsø, NORWAY - DEC 18, 2008
330ml bottle bought at Luvians in St Andrews when I could not find more Scottish beers to drink. Very lively when open – only half of the content found its way to the glass. When it finally settled the body colour could be described as hazy golden with a thin, white head. Aroma of spicy malts and late fruits. Tangerine fruits in flavour, joined by yeasty hops and liquorice sweetness. Medium bodied. Sweet, bit still decent drinkability [09.11.2008].

pivnizub (9728) - Bochum, Porúří, GERMANY - APR 4, 2009
Bottle: Golden, lively carbonation, smaller persistent off-white head; sweet-sourish fruity nose with a tinge of vanilla and some cellary traces; moderate to robust sweet-sourish flavour, medium to full bodied; sweetish-fruity (lemons, green apples) finish with a light acidity and some throat-warming alcohol. Unusual, but very interesting....

330 ml bottle. Finland. As Petrus Gouden Tripel. Clear orange-golden colour with huge foamy white head. Fruity, grassy and yeasty aroma with some spices. Some fruitiness and yeast in flavour too. Spices. Quite light and yet not very complex.

gnoff (9283) - Mölndal, SWEDEN - APR 26, 2009
33 cl bottle as "Petrus Gouden Tripel", on April 25, 2009 at Bredaryds Wärdshus
Hazy pale golden color, fluffy white head. Acidic and some apple scent. Acidic, yeasty, alcohol taste. Spritzy mouthfeel, low bitterness.

leaparsons (9271) - Leicester, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - AUG 28, 2005
Bottle. hazy gold with an off-white head. Aromas are thin lemon, pepper and alcohol. Flavours are lemon, apricot, honey and yeast. Dry and bitter on the finish. Thinner in character than I expected.

jercraigs (9154) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 28, 2004
UPDATED: JUN 1, 2004 2nd bottle: Better than the first but still kind of bizarre. Hmmm... 1st bottle: lightly hazy yellow with a very nice billowy white head. Getting some really strange flavours out of this one. That don’t taste like the flavours that would indicate it is off but are not entirely pleasant. I have a second bottle so hopefully it will be more up to snuff.

JoeMcPhee (9051) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 10, 2004
Huge rocky and lasting head over a cloudy yellow beer. Fruity, spicy, lightly sour aroma with abundant pear/apple character. Lemony citrusy smell here also. Light-bodied, with loads of apple/pear fruit and spice. Quite good, but lacking in complexity.
