tbookman (618) - Ephrata, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 3, 2004
Light brown color with a dense head and cloudy appearance. Aroma was malty witha hint of spice & yeast. Soft palate - fruity, spicy that warms as it finishes. Hints of apples & roasted something - peanuts? Slighlty acidic. Very nice.

Orangish brown w/thick white head. Musty yeasty nose with light spice, nuts, malt and creamy notes. Med-Heavey w/sweet creamy finish. Malt, honey, light spice, citrus, carmel, and toffe flavors. Nice!

Aubrey (3417) - Bellingham, Washington, USA - OCT 25, 2004
Cloudy orange with quite a few floaties. Nice carbonation level. Appealing nose, with notes of apple and pear. Rich malts (yeasty dough) with a subtle sweetness (vanilla, cookie). Some bandaid phenols. Mild bitterness and some spiciness in the finish. Pleasant tasting and enjoyable.

CampbellWilson (533) - SCOTLAND - OCT 24, 2004
Bottle conditioned at room temp from the Beer Bar in Glasgow. Good off-white head, golden orange colour. Citrus/yeast/hop/flower/honey aroma. Full mouthfeel, long hoppy finish. Good íun.

Quetzalcoatl (153) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - OCT 22, 2004
Clear yellow with a white lasting head. The aroma is very characteristic of a Triple; full and enticing. Well balanced sweetness with some spice and herbal hop flavors. A bit thinner body than what I would expect, but still enjoyable nonetheless.

Eirikur (362) - hafnarfjordur, ICELAND - OCT 21, 2004
This one like all the Bernardus beers really need to age.there is no perticular flav in that brew, it is just missing something.

zach8270 (3217) - Henrietta, New York, USA - OCT 20, 2004
UPDATED: DEC 6, 2008 [33 cl. bottle] Hazy orange/amber color with a creamy head that lasts for a long time. Complex and potent aroma of fruits, yeast, slight spice and alcohol. Well balanced flavor that begins with a sweet yeasty flavor and has a nice spicy backbone and a nice peppery and citrus zing at the end. Good carbonation and very creamy.

mreeves (274) - Sammamish, Washington, USA - OCT 16, 2004
A nice, hazy golden color, with lots of carbonation and a head that lasts forever. Yeasty and fruity. Very drinkable, hides the strong alcohol content very well. A very well-made and delicious tripel.

guzzler67 (1484) - Hanover, Maryland, USA - OCT 11, 2004
Amber orange appearance with flocculation. Fairly large head had sparce lacing. Yeasty aroma with spicy overtones. A subdued sweetness lurks behind the well carbonated, medium-bodied flavor. Fruity/citrus finish. Not at all bad, just had higher expectations from this brewery.

Metalhead (623) - Lake Zurich, Illinois, USA - OCT 1, 2004
UPDATED: APR 1, 2005 BB date just a few mos away. Hazy golden color. Initially very fizzy but faded away in minutes. Sweet,yeasty and slight malty aroma,big citrus notes. Flavor is sweet and lightly malty with hints of spices,some kind of fleshy fruit I couldnít pinpoint with some natural honey flavor in the finish. Have not had a tripel like this before. VERY good. And damn if half the bottle didnít disappear with this rating. 4-01-05 Just tasted one that was a month past the BB date. HOLY crap. The best trippel Iíve ever had. My 2nd ever 5.
