TBone (13212) - Pori, FINLAND - OCT 11, 2005
Bottled (BB 06/2007)
Golden color, big foamy head, lace. Aroma has metal, burnt sugars and sweetish fruits. Medium-bodied. Good balanced bitterness and malt profile, decent alcoholic bite and long hoppy aftertaste. Hints of brown (burnt) sugars in the flavor. Extra sweetness (sugar) drops total value of this beer more to bulk tripel class, but I wonder what a couple of years in the cellar would do to this.

JanPrimus1982 (48) - Delft, NETHERLANDS - AUG 17, 2005
Served in a trappist glass with a creamy and fully lasting head of one centimeter. Appearance very good! Aroma is fruity and yeasty. You smell it immediately when you open the bottle. Flavor is good (not bad, but just like those other Belgian tripels).

sayravai (4673) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JUN 30, 2005
(Bottled) Very hazy golden color with a largeish, frothy and bubbly, lacy head. Fruity and mildly yeasty, acidic aroma with some hops. Fruity, moderately sweet, toffeeish flavor. Medium to full-bodied, acidic palate with slightly sharp carbonation. A decent, acidic and fruity tripel. Nothing special as a tripel, but a very ok brew.

Papsoe (25076) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - MAY 28, 2005
(Bottle 33 cl) My version with 7% ABV. Golden with a huge, fluffy head. Some bittersweet notes of malt with the hops most pronounced in the finish. Lightly burned malt in this according to the label. Nice and rather classical tripel. 280196

Ungstrup (29985) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JAN 16, 2005
An orange beer with a huge light brown head. The aroma is sweet with notes of coriander and yeast. The flavor is very sweet with lots of coriander and oranges, before the alcohol makes it mark, by warming the mouth. The end is dry spicy both from coriander and hops.

Nate (3800) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 8, 2004
Alcohol. Sweet malts, Belgian yeasties and fruity esters. Deep amber, hazy, with thin white foamy lacing head. Medium body with medium-high carbonation. Sweet malty start, vapory alcohol, Belgian yeast, and honey. Fruity hops, dry finish. Mild bitter after, just a bit of citrus.

Poured a deeper, hazy golden color with an averaged sized head. Aromas and tastes of spices, fruits and yeasts. Lightly sweet. Alcohol well hidden. Decent Trippel.

Hendo (110) - Sint Anthonis, NETHERLANDS - OCT 18, 2004
Bottle conditioned - bought in Nijmegen (NL) Hazy gold in colour, impressive head. The aroma slaps you as soon as the bottle is opened, quite fruity in taste. Most enjoyable.
