daboskabouter (1470) - Fergus, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 17, 2005
Cloudy orange colour with a fizzy white head. The nose is yeasty and candyish, sweet with a nice tropical fruit presence - mango. The body is strong with yeast, predominantly yeasty. A bit too yeasty for a tripel if you ask me.

bourne (161) - Suwon, SOUTH KOREA - DEC 14, 2005
bottle in france 33cl, can aquire in maryland. very sweet, not as carbonated as I would expect from a tripel, perhaps because I am use to sampleing tripels in the states where they have fermented more and lost sweetness.

mullet (849) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - DEC 12, 2005
Clear gold, poor head for a Belgian. Loads of candy in the aroma, spicy phenolics, vanilla custard, glue and perhaps lime rind. Pretty full-bodied and carbonation isn’t all that high. Tastes quite sweet and candy-ish, with a tiny bit of earthy, minty hop. Very drinkable but not that exciting. A bit too sweet for mine.

Numenor (871) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - DEC 10, 2005
A sweet and malty aroma with light carbonation. Golden and cloudy in body. Fruits and nuts are the primary tastes evident. Very plesant ending.

maniac (3800) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - DEC 10, 2005
Clear golden color with a rocky white head. Flowery aroma with hints of malt. Light spice flavor with malty notes. Pairs very well with a sharp cheddar cheese, which will bring out the candy sugar in the flavor

piscator34 (1995) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - DEC 6, 2005
Dark gold in colour with high carbonation. Aromas are of light and slightly sweet malt, black pepper, and touches of grassy hops and banana. The flavors are somewhat fruity (a bit more banana and apricot) and sweet, but are balanced out by some spicy yeast notes. A bit of alcohol warming, but nothing over the top in that regard. No surprises, but this is a well made, balanced tripel.

jmuhops (669) - Winchester, Virginia, USA - NOV 27, 2005
Pours honey-gold with a huge head that keeps growing long after you stop pouring. Aroma of hay, grass, bread, and yeast. Some alcohol and pepper. Very mellow flavorl. Yeasty and spicy, with a light hop aftertaste and a little alcohol warming.

MiP (13774) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - NOV 16, 2005
Bottle. Aroma seems a little oxidized. Nicely bready flavour, not very peppery. Slightly swelling mouthfeel. Finish is a little dry.

Radek Kliber (6519) - Toronto (Can) Krotoszyn (Pol), POLAND - NOV 11, 2005
Pours hazy citric gold brown ale. Large frothy head. Refreshing, yeasty aroma, with such potency yet soft and gentle. Meadow flower. Yeast, clean smooth body, hints of spice, just shade of alcohol in background. Drinkabitiy is superb. I am not sure how they have done it but they did it. Silky smooth Belgian ale, seamless blend of flavour. Very clean work I must repeat. Highly recommended.

rederic (3063) - montréal, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 11, 2005
Hazy golden honey hue, with a white head, yeasty, fruity, candied oranges, bready, sweet pale malt, with a honeyish accent in the nose, follows through on a medium-bodied palate with a fruity, yeasty note, with a honey touch, mouthfell, an a peachy fruitiness, with an alcoholic warmth, leading towards a sweet candied citrus fruits in a dry finish.
