Elwood (2960) - Leesburg, Virginia, USA - AUG 13, 2011
Serving: 22 oz. bottle from Total Wine Sterling. It pours a hazy orange-gold color with a small head. The nose is fruity and sweet. The flavor doesnít really have much of a Belgian side, just sweet and high in alcohol. Itís lacking any complexity and yeast characteristics. Some bread and toast notes. Rather heavy on the tongue for the style. Itís drinkable just not very ambitious.

JFGrind (1811) - Glenside, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 11, 2011
Strong Tripel, yeast and fruit flavors, golden body and medium bitterness. At Four bucks a bomber @ Total Wine Claymont even a Plumber College student can afford.

beerguy101 (5267) - Newark, California, USA - AUG 10, 2011
Sampled on 7/23/2011. This tripel pours a med to dark orange gold color from a 22oz bottle. Small to medium sized white foamy head, with good lacing. The aroma is fruity, yeasty and sweet, with apricots and peaches and a touch of tropical. A medium bodied tripel. The malts are fruity and sweet, apricot and tropical. The hops are herbal. Yeasty and bright. Nice carbonation. A touch of residual sweetness. Very drinkable tripe, with a nice smooth finish. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is slightly sweet.

nuplastikk (4127) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 8, 2011
12oz shorty bottle. 9%. Hazy orange tan. Patchy, soapy, quick fading head. Pretty standard American brewpub style Tripel I guess. Nothing really Belgian about itís mouthfeel, a little thin and watery. Not off, just not very enjoyable. Mellow, peachy, sweet aroma. Shows the alcohol, goes down a little boozy. Sugary orange peel tones. Dull.

Drake (7945) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - AUG 7, 2011
Bomber from Total Wine Norfolk, VA, opened 7/29/11. Pours a slight hazy amber color with a large fizzy offwhite head. Fair head retention and lacing. Aroma of stone fruits, candi sugar, bread, faint bit of bubblegum. The taste is bready notes, caramel, sugar, some toastiness, faintly fruity finish. Medium bodied.

CJfromPhilly (138) - Aston, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 6, 2011
Pours from the 22 oz. bottle a slightly hazy orange color with the standard 3 finger Belgian head. Typical high carbonation, there s an almost champagne-like cascade of bubbles in the glass. Aroma is a muted blend of citrus, straw, and honey. 1st sip has some soft citrus notes, with a dryness I canít quite put my finger on. Mouthfeel is bright & sparkly from the carbonation, but with a modest heft. Overall, a pretty average tripel. Nothing to get too excited about, iím afraid.

mcberko (5368) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 26, 2011
12 oz. bottle, pours a hazy golden orange with a small white head. Aroma of apples, oranges, candied sugar, caramel and yeast. Flavour is quite muted, with yeast and dry green apple upfront, followed by some candied sugar / sweet malt, and a slight alcohol burn on the finish. Low complexity - the flavours sort of die toward the end. Decent but unremarkable tripel.

Draught@Taproom Grill, Downtown Seattle.
Clear pale amber color, small white head. Fruity apricot aroma. Medium-bodied. Flavor is also fruity ... apricot, mango, alcohol. Not very complex, tastes like a good malt liquer :)

bkurtz (725) - PERU - JUL 10, 2011
Poured a hazy light yellow with a big, fluffy head. Spice notes and a nice maltiness with a smooth finish. Well-balanced, nice American take on a Belgian Tripel, although it was a little thin.

Padron4KM (531) - Chandler, Arizona, USA - JUL 4, 2011
22 oz bottle from Total Wine in Las Vegas Nevada. Cloudy, pale straw, with a thin white head, and spotty lacing. Aroma is very light. Picking up some fruity notes Green apple and pear. Flavor is slightly sweet and fruity up front, finishing with some mild hop dryness.
