Smelt of maple, like the bullseye candies found in penny candy stores with hints of citrus. Pour a honey color, with a this creamy head that disapated into a thin cramy head. Floaters like the spice in pumpkin pie filling just added to the eye candy.The taste was simply lovely. Creamy, rich, alcohol, faint sugar and plums. As I said, simply lovely.

Pour was a cloudy copper and gold with a thick pillowy white head. Left good lacing. The aroma was pepper and spice initially but lightened up as the beer opened up. Fruit and yeast took over as the main fragrances about half way through the bottle. The flavor was a nice blend of honey, banana and mild spicyness. Incredible mouthfeel. Super velvety with a succinct finish. My experience with Tripels is somewhat limited, but I thought this one was much better than Chimay white.

LinusStick (3002) - Moon Twp, suburb of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 3, 2007
Delicious tripel. Pour was a hazy orange with a 1 finger white head (no lacing). Aroma was of yeast and fruit. Taste was dry and yeasty with pear, apple and some other fruit I can’t put my finger on. Medium carbonation and well rounded aftertaste. Man this is good...makes me want to join the monestary!

marchcow (664) - Coralville, Iowa, USA - MAR 1, 2007
Bottle. Poured a solid golden color, fairly opaque with a frothy white head. Aroma of dried fruit and pineapple and malt. Flavor is somewhat bitter initially turning to a pleasing sour. Strong carbonation and a creamy mouthfeel with somewhat dry bite on the finish. Good.

lagomswedish (213) - Umeå, SWEDEN - FEB 28, 2007
Bottle @ Bishops Arms in Umeå. Hazy orange with a wispy white head. Wonderfully jammy fruit nose of Swedish cloudberries (hjortron) and sweet musky honey. The yeast is very evident in both the aroma and the palate, which is incredibly silky and smooth. Every sip seems to evaporate with a mere kiss of delicate fruit and faint reminder of the abv. A more balanced beer you’d be hard pressed to find. To me a more subtle, more drinkable beer than the 12. My mouth waters at the desserts you could pair this tripel with..........

Cletus (6355) - Connecticut, USA - FEB 28, 2007
Pours a cloudy amber with a sparse white head. Smells of sweet fruit (citrus mostly with some peaches). Tastes of grainy cereal, apples, pears, some misc fruit flavors and some sugar. No real hoppiness to this one. Most of the flavor seems to come from the malt and yeast from what I can tell. I’m not sure what to think of this one and may have to revisit later. Finish is very syruppy and sugary like fake maple syrup.

Hazy yellow coloured, some light carbonation and a large creamy white head. Sweet yeasty fruity aroma (pear, apple hints). Full Palate. Finish is dry yeasty, some sweet alcoholic bitter touches. Very nice balanced beer.
