pintbypint (2708) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 28, 2014
341ml brown bottle, from the 2014 Snowcase. Golden and clear, small ring of white foam on top. Nose has some fruitiness, orange, trace of alcohol, a bit sweet. Taste has yeast, some orangey fruity notes and late alcohol. Finishes drier with yeasty notes. An ok beer.

ljthiessen (517) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - DEC 26, 2014
Bottle. Slightly hazy golden orange colour with no head. Light fruit aromas, apple and mandarin orange, pineapple, Belgian yeast. Flavour is almost candy-sweet with fruit and Belgian yeast, not perfectly balanced and some slight off flavours, but not bad. Sits between a Belgian blonde and a tripel. Not sure what all the terrible reviews are about, I thought this was perhaps a little below average for the style.

Oldschool_Mike (84) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 23, 2014
Bottle into tulip glass. Pours a hazy gold colour. Aroma is tart fruit and spicy yeast. Taste is about the same with a lot of alcohol. I'm not digging this beer. -- rated via 'Find A Beer' for Blackberry 10

andrewturba (1089) - Alberta, CANADA - DEC 8, 2014
Pours a clear golden amber with a small lasting white head and and some good streaks of lace. Aroma is perfumy fruity alcohol blend, and overall just Belgian yeast qualities. Flavour is soft alcohol, perfumey, Belgian yeast and fruity esters all mixed together nicely.

Reimer96 (1348) - Alberta, CANADA - DEC 8, 2014
Pours a clear golden orange with with a big frothy white head. Aroma is a nice bouquet of fruits, citrus and banana with some spiciness to it. Taste is spicy with citrus peel, orange and banana with a slight alcohol warmth on the finish... Bit of an out of place bitterness/harshness on the finish but overall a really good triple that’s has good balance and complexity.

reebtogi (4402) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - APR 19, 2012
650ml bottle pours a slightly cloudy pale golden color with a 2 finger white head that settles quickly leaving very little lacing behind. Aroma is yeasty with some light fruits and grains. Taste is big malt and fruity sweetness with some yeast and a mild hoppy finish. Light to medium body with enough carbonation to leave a pleasing sensation on the tongue. Overall, a pretty decent tripel style ale.

maekchu (2300) - Hirakata, JAPAN - APR 16, 2012
Bottle. Sourish, fruity aroma. Cloudy yellow. Buttery, sweet flavors. An aftertaste that disappears at light speed. Mild mouth feel. A very very innocuous tripel. Dull.

GeneralGao (3614) - Iowa City, Iowa, USA - MAR 20, 2012
Bottle. Poured a clear light orange color. The head was off white, a few fingers high and reduced to a lasting thin film. Cereal grain and whiffs of pear and clove. Light to medium bodied and delicately sweet with a modest warming alcohol effect. Unripe apple, biscuity malt, and subdued spice flavors.

Marsiblursi (3028) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - JAN 31, 2012
(Bottle) Pours dark yellow to golden. The aroma holds candi sugar, apples, marzipan, grapes, some pears and spicy hops. Bit herbal. The flavour is near medium sweet and light bitter with notes of pears, apples, candi sugar, marzipan, herbs, spices and a tiny touch of phenols. The mouthfeel is light sticky. Some alcohol. Medium bodied.

VertBaconStrips (2100) - Assat, Alberta, CANADA - JAN 6, 2011
Rated in Oct 2010. Thanks to Brad for this disaster. Ok golden beer with some light floaties, a small bubbly ring and no lacing. Aroma...... what is this? Syrup? sweet sugar, raw sugar, fake apples, light Belgian remnants...? This tastes like watery shit. Strange chemicals, odd bitterness... I’m not bothering drinking anymore of this. Lightly drying, sweet and barely drinkable, minor bitterness and a weak pepper. Lots of yeast. Sticky feel... barely faintly vaguely a triple. Not a good beer.
