Nate (3553) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 28, 2004
Sweet and vapory aroma. Candy sugar, citrus oil, light hops, and malts. Belgian yeasties. Hazy light amber with pillowy white lacing head. Medium body with medium-lively carbonation, very nice. Starts rather sweet. Malty, sugary, with light fruity character. No acidity. Finish stays sweet and alcoholic, with yeasts and light bitterness. After is light dryness with extended sweet notes on the tongue. Very nicely balanced. A nice tripel.

JonR888710 (999) - Cochabamba, BOLIVIA - MAY 22, 2004
Peachy-brown color with a medium thick, long lasting white head. Outstanding lacing. Smells rich malt, fruit, raisins, apples and pears. Taste is same: apples, pears, malt with yeast and coriander. Makes for a very easy drinking triple. Alcohol is cleverly hidden. Sampled from an 11.2 oz bottle purchsed at Chevy Chase wine and spirits in Washington, DC.

jeffin7 (612) - Silver Spring, Maryland, USA - MAY 17, 2004
Pours a light golden with a nice fluffy head. Aroma is a bit metallic with some dark fruit, and citrus. Flavor is doughy with dark fruit and a bit of citrus to make it a bit lively. Nice but a bit subdued.

PisskyNight (13) - Pottstown, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 10, 2004
Appearance: Dark Pear like hue, clouded body with a major carbonation flow along with an overwhelming fizzly white head...as I left the smallest portion in the bottle....and once I mixed the dregs up I poured the dregs from the bottom in which brown pieces of yeast sprinkled the head like cinnamon on your latte Smell: Massive array of citrus fruits...from pear to peach, apricot to mango, mango to star fruit....followed up by strong peppery and flower phenols... Taste: quite similar to the smell....a robust citrus fruit appeal, follewed by a well introduced Mr. Yeast...banana seemed to makes its impression as well....nice cider like feel with a vinegar malty backbone....just great complexity Notes: This is a well crafted brew...with all the complex characteristics it remains very very balanced...great stuff

UPDATED: SEP 16, 2004 I’m all about this tripel. Nice fruity notes with a mini alcohol bite on the end. Very well balanced and easy drinking. It’s not necessarily the best example of the style, but the beer is just so enjoyable I can’t help but give it good marks.

Sammy (8094) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - APR 25, 2004
Peach and citrus, sugary malty. Lovely example of a trippel, and I like trippels. Becoming better known. Sweet and bubbly like Ommegang Ommegang but with the class of a Belgian. Yes, precisely. And not as spiced out and overly complex as Unibroue can be.

TChrome (1399) - Bedford, Texas, USA - APR 25, 2004
750ml bottle. Very attractive dark golden color with a massive egg white colored head that is fully retained. Aroma is nicely hoppy with a nice dose of yeast. Light floral scent as well. Really nicely restrained hop bitterness with some wonderful yeast flavor and just a bit of candy sugar. This is very enjoyable, somewhat affordable, and highly accessible beer.

heemer77 (5080) - Urbandale, Iowa, USA - APR 25, 2004
UPDATED: MAY 10, 2005 Sampled yet again at a warmer temperature. Still nice. The main difference I noticed was a slight increase in the sourness. I stick by my previous impressions. A very solid tripel. Poured with a huge, slightly off-white head. This has a yeasty, sour lemon smell. The appearance is a hazy, light copper. The flavor is much sweeter than the aroma would indicate. It has ginger, clove and banana. The sweetness is subtle.

clutchrogers (90) - Broussard, Louisiana, USA - APR 12, 2004
UPDATED: MAY 25, 2004 aromas of bread, nuts, esters, alcohol and rum? polished copper color, clear with a huge creamy head that lasts. flavors of brown sugar, orange, bready malt, slight hop flavor. creamy body that dries nicely avoiding cloying sweetness. somewhat powdery in the finish. candy like flavors. excelent beer. very well balanced.
