redlight (2317) - Orlando, Florida, USA - SEP 30, 2006
Citrus aroma, sweet, spice, corriander. Pours yellow with a huge white head. The flavor is crisp, sweet, some spice. And it feels light on the palate. A great triple!

Diogène (1067) - Mirabel, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 26, 2006
33cl bottle at Pub Italia, Ottawa. Hazy golden with a minimal and long lasting white head. Aroma is malty and spicy with citrus and yeast. Taste is similar as the aroma with a creamy mouthfeel. Excellent.

aarossell (151) - Grandville, Michigan, USA - SEP 20, 2006
I’ve never seen so much unfiltered goodness. There were a frightening amount of chunks floating in the glass after I poured the bottle. Very spicy! Excellent as it got warmer...like a meal...only liquid and refreshing. Warmed my head fast too, at 8% .

PilsnerPeter (3028) - Flushing, New York, USA - SEP 20, 2006
UPDATED: OCT 10, 2006 Pours a hazy deep golden with a thick white head. Huge aroma of date-like fruityness. Upfront fruity notes of figs, banana?. Nice nutty element as well, along with some belgian yeast and has a late smooth, light bitterness. Nice tripel.

WeeHeavySD (3359) - San Diego (Hillcrest), Oregon, USA - SEP 17, 2006
small bottle. Purchased at the Holiday Wine Cellar in Esconcido, CA. This brew pours a slightly cloudy straw color, with a large pillowy head. The aroma is light, slighty sweet, and citrusy. The taste mirrors the aroma and has nice citrus notes and is very drinkable and nice on the palate. This is a solid quality tripel, yum.

pilsnerrogge (2577) - Finspång, SWEDEN - SEP 11, 2006
[75 cl bottle] Golden, hazy colour. Huge head. Fruity, yeasty aroma with notes of citrus. Tastes pretty much as it smells. Very easy drinking.

daalamar (405) - new albany, Indiana, USA - SEP 8, 2006
Pours a golden/amber color with a medium lasting head. Big fruity aroma, sweet flowers and maybe some honey. Flavor is sweet and malty with a kick of yeast and spice in the finish. Overall a good beer but there are better out there.

Augustijn55 (82) - Izegem, BELGIUM - SEP 7, 2006
Golden colored with a thin white head that maintains ’til the end. Sharp, woody carb melts away leaving a yeasty banana. Wonderful stuff! This hits all the right notes. Sweet fruit never overpowers. Balance is perfect with refreshing carb giving way to sherbet smoothness.

bfeldmann (1049) - Wilmington, Delaware, USA - SEP 6, 2006
Poured a cloudy amber color. Aroma was frutiy/yeasts and spices. Flavor was much the same with a flavor that i couldn’t pick out that wasn’t good. Good beer but have had better tripels.

nhorween (645) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - SEP 4, 2006
UPDATED: OCT 23, 2007 Bottle, side by side with Mad Bitch, and this is better. Bright honey color with a white head and good retention. Nose is yeasty, mildly sweet, clean, fresh. Flavor is balanced and nothing is overly pronounced. Silky and smooth with great carbonation. A very good tripel, balanced and delicious.
