A large, white head stayed over a mid-golden & particulate heavy body. Yeasty dough & banana aroma with English toffee and light sulphur. A sharp palate stings as it bites the lips and tongue. Mid-bodied and fizzy mouthfeel. Flavor finds yeasty sour fruitiness and stale caramel. Alcohol does not dominate, nor does it hide. Overall, I expected greater.

Golden color with some floaties. Large white head. Spicy/fruity aroma and taste. Carbonation seemed harsh. Dry finish.

Nagash (207) - Paris, FRANCE - MAY 24, 2006
A good tripel but i was a bit disapointed. Very fruity with the classical tripel tastes and and very dry finish. But this one is lighter in alcohol and flavour than some others.

Naven (1000) - Poway, California, USA - MAY 24, 2006
Bottle: One of my favorite Tripels. Nice golden color, with a white fluffy head. Very fruity, sweet smell. The taste is awesome. Nice and warm going down. Pretty much a perfect Tripel.

Bottled. Murky, light brown color with a white head.. Tons of floaties. Sweet, sugary aroma with notes of prunes, grapes, raisins, yeast and leather. Sweet malt flavor with notes of brown sugar and plums. Dry finish with a slight astringency.

Beaver (1338) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - MAY 20, 2006
UPDATED: OCT 13, 2006 11.2 oz bottle, best before 7/28/08. Pours a cloudy dark gold with some yeast floaties in it. The head is white and very bubbly. It retains pretty well and clings to the glass.

The aroma is very spicy - cloves, banana, floral and earthy and a little honey.

The flavor is kind of musty, bready malt with a little spiciness, some bananas, some honey sweetness and a laid back bitterness throughout. The mouthfeel is pretty full with some rather harsh carbonation.

Overall, it’s pretty good. It’s almost a little more saison-ey than triple-y.

Pours cloudy peach with a big, rocky, white head. Lasting with nice lacing. The aroma is big, fruity and sweet, candi, peaches, banana, tangerines and oranges. Flavor is golden raisins, oranges, candi sugar, caramels becoming slightly tart at the end. Suprisingly dry. Finish is dry, bitter and slightly metallic with some warming alcohol. Mouthfeel is light with lively carbonation.

reebtogi (4368) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - MAY 14, 2006
Another fine example of a fine Belgian tripel, I tried it at Christmas and it went well with the smoked ham and Dijon mustard. Good carbonation, nice amber colour and fruity with a yeasty finish.

Habanero (2749) - Tranbjerg, DENMARK - MAY 12, 2006
Bottle: Nice white head with a deep amber and misty body. Fine carbonation. Aroma of fruit (citrus), bread and honey. Yeast and coreander in the flavour with a nice hoppy bite. Medium to full bodied. Slightly bitter/ sweet fiinish. An enjoyable classic tripel.
