goldtwins (4320) - Nesconset, New York, USA - SEP 11, 2006
Poured a hazy golden amber color with a medium white head. Yeasty and malty aroma and for the most part flavor. Phenolic notes in the aroma that seemed to be mostly clove but something else as well. The flavor had a fair amount of fruit in the malt with some more clove.

bu11zeye (11760) - Frisco (Dallas), Texas, USA - AUG 25, 2006
(750ml bottle, best before 11.10.07) Pours a lightly hazy golden orange body with a medium-sized white head. Aroma of orange zest, mustiness, plastic, dustiness, and a hint of butterscotch. Flavor of grapefruit peel, spicy yeast, and hops with a soft mouthfeel.

thewolf (10785) - Kolding, DENMARK - AUG 23, 2006
Pours clear yellow with big creamy and very white head. Fruity aroma, banana some wheat and a bit of malts. Quite vinious at the beginning, some spice, and quite a bit of bitterness.

wunderbier (1434) - Tampere, FINLAND - AUG 23, 2006
Supporting a significant and creamy white head, the bronze hued body is intriguingly dark for a Belgian Tripel. Fresh and earthen elements appear at once aromatically in the vein of warm apple and pear compote served over toasted sourdough bread. Herbal hop tones are subtle glimmerings of crushed mint and basil leaves. A dash of spice is brought into the fold through notes of black pepper, clove and lemon zest. The flavor begins malty sweet with a light prickling of citric acidity opening into a more forceful fruity acidity and slight alcohol dryness by mid-palate. Finalizing the experience are bright herbal hop elements, thin bready malts and a zingy acidity in the off-dry finish. Interestingly, the body feels quite fat at the front but quickly thins out to reveal the reedy finish. Velvety smooth, the texture marries harmoniously with the brisk, pinpoint carbonation. For my money, there are a couple problems with this one. First off, the complexity is somewhat lacking. Next—though I treasure beers with earthy qualities—the brightness of my favorite Tripels isn’t here. Finally, I really like Tripels to be bone dry and this one exhibits a great deal of fatness at the front of the palate. 750mL bottle, Burgundy glass, 11.10.07 expiration date.

hotstuff (3954) - Indiana, USA - AUG 21, 2006
Corked and caged bottle marked Exp. 11/10/07. Poured a large white frothy, foamy and fizzy head that was mostly lasting with poor lacing, carbonated, hazy, and a golden hue. Nose was fruity, citrus, spicy and clove. Flavor was not overly vinuous at 8.1%, somewhat acidic, fruity, clove and spicy. Mouthfeel had a tingly and warming effect. Medium body.

Hazy Golden with fine white head. Aroma of citrus and yeast + spices. Medium carbonation. smooth texture. Little sweetness. Hoppy. Little warm from alcohol. Pleasant spicy finish that lastes! OK

Phatz (225) - Paradise, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 1, 2006
Oh good Lord is this ever a fantastic nightcap of a beer. I like ’em sweet and big this certainly is both! Appearance: Cloudy orange body with lot of carbonation. Smell: Citrusy orange, yeast and honey. Taste: Apples and plums and beady and honey and so much sharp sugar character. I only got to sample it and I got all that. I NEED more of this beer!!! ARRG! I will get this beer again and write more but I have to tell you, this one is terrific, with its nice dry pucker inducing finish. mmm. Mouthfeel: effervescent and creamy but dry in the end. Drinkability: This is certainly a nightcap not a session beer. That said it is mighty tasty and goes down very easily. Hope this is helpful. Cheers!

5000 (6027) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - JUL 15, 2006
Bottle: Dirty burnt straw, huge rocky off-white head, clumpy lacing, loads of sediment on the bottom.   Soft floral notes on the nose, but not as spicy as I was hoping.   It is however a little astringent.   Dull spices, bready, not much floral aspect on the tongue.   Definitely a dull version of a Triple.   Moderate body and mouthfeel.   Not hot, but very warming.   Astringent like spices on the finish, slightly dry, even a bit chalky.   A little rough around the edges, and not as floral as I would have expected, but not bad.

Bottle sampled with Beerded_one. Pours hazy golden with a thick off-white head. Aroma of fruit, citrus, spices and alcohol. Flavor is smooth, sweet, alcohol masked well, citrus, spices are present. Good body, good brew.
