bitbucket (2160) - Kirkland, Washington, USA - JUL 2, 2006
Pours a cloudy gold with a lacy white head. The taste is sweet and creamy with toffee, bubblegum and cloves, and a lingering spice finish.

Theis (14293) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JUN 27, 2006
Bottle at Ølbaren. Light amber, white head. A good tripel, very nice carbonated. Citrus, yeast, hop, spicy, dry.. A good triple.

badnewsbeers (2312) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - JUN 20, 2006
amber pour with heavy carbonation and no head...wonderful fruit-filled aroma that begins light in spice and herbs, and finishes with alcohol and wheat...flavor begins with a lemon punch and finishes with a tonic water backbone (florals abound that finish dry and bitter, yet crisp)...nice tripel

duff (5484) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUN 21, 2006
Bottle. Quite a typical tripel. Quite yeasty, with some stewed fruit and warming alcohol. Probably a little too raw for me, most tripels tend to be for me anyway.

NachlamSie (2923) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JUN 15, 2006
bottle. Cloudy lemon pour with a dense, firm, white head. Aroma is sweet and full of yeast, lemons, bananas, and a far off sourness. Very palatable bright citrus in the mouth with an even level of banana sweetness. A bit of floral, spicy character is noticed throughout. Very delicate balance in this brew. Pairs quite well with the homemade garlic bread.

Skinnyviking (7626) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUN 10, 2006
Bottle. White high and lasting head. Clear yellow body. Fruity alcohol aroma. Flavor too alcohol dominated if the intention was to make it fruity, only some dry hops bitterness apart from the alcohol can be tasted.

thebaldwizard (1205) - Ohio, USA - JUL 3, 2006
St. Bernardus Tripel pours a hazy yellowish-orange color with a bright white head. The head was very nice and left tons of lacing. The aroma, mouthfeel, and flavor were all the same--weak. This beer is very easy to drink, and it isn’t bad--but I want more flavor out of a belgian in this class. One of my most dissapointing beer experiences yet."

TheEpeeist (3500) - Media, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 9, 2006
11.2 oz bottle. Cloudy honey colored with a thin white head that maintains ’til the end. Peppery pizza dough with traces of melon and porcini. Sharp, woody carb melts away leaving a yeasty banana. A little peachy sour with lingering marshmallow and nutmeg. Wonderful stuff! This hits all the right notes. Light enough for summer but with a full mouth. Sweet fruit never overpowers. Balance is perfect with refreshing carb giving way to sherbet smoothness.

Dedollewaitor (14501) - Odense, DENMARK - JUN 21, 2006
cloudy golden with fine white head. Aroma & taste of spices/fruit & wheat. Very yeasty & malty. A little sweetness. Lively carbonated. Finish has a pleasant bitterness - could perhaps have had a more hoppy punch. Above average tripel!

750mL: Pours a golden yellow-red color, extremely fizzy. Very clear looking. Big big head, slightly off-white, lasting. Extremely floral aroma, dark fruit. Similar aroma to Allagash Triple, one of my favorites. Very floral taste, dark fruit, sweet, not thick, sightly creamy, smooth mouthfeel. Floral afertaste. Similar in almost everyway to Allagash Triple.
