langeveld12 (225) - NETHERLANDS - AUG 20, 2014
Head is white, frothy and huge but diminishes mostly. Body is clear light yellow with sparkles. Aroma contains straw, citrus fruits, spruce, and banana, vanilla, grape, raisin, pear, peach and spices. Flavor is light acidic, then bitter and light sweet, then sweet and finishes in bitter. Body is medium with creamy texture and soft carbonation. Truly a great tripel. Many sweet fruits and a bitter finish.

Pours a cloudy, slightly greenish pale amber with one finger of white head diminishing gradually to a thin skim and moderate lacing. Nose is light malt, yeasty, orange peel, slight alcohol. Taste is sweet and yeasty, clove and pepper, finishing bitter. Mouth feel is medium bodied but sticky, with mild warming.

PapaVillum (437) - Valby, DENMARK - AUG 15, 2014
330 ml / 33 cl, flaske, rating m.f.f. alderstegn - flasken BB 26/11/10, købt i Den Belgiske Ølbutik i Vanløse, 15. august 2014. Karamelbrun, grumset og ufiltreret Triple med fin høj offwhite skumtop, 3-4 cm. Ganske stort indhold af gærrester, som sandsynligvis delvist skyldes alderen (se top). Lettere sur-/sødlig aroma. Citrus/lime, tørret frugt, gær, bondegård, fugtig/svampet. God dyb smag. Fint indhold af sødme og ganske moderat bitterhed. Ganske lille let surhed i begyndelsen. Fin medium lang eftersmag. Fin balance mellem smagselementerne. Mellem fyldig krop og cremet konsistens. CO2 på et medium niveau. En god og "stabil" Triple uden dikkedarer og let drikkelig trods udseendet.

Very nice cereal notes in the aroma, light floral and some alcohol. Golden and clearappearance. Small bubbles and fluffy white head, stayed for quite a while. Medium bitter, the cereal taste started first and ended in the bitter aftertaste. Medium body, average carbonation, long finish. Rates amongst the best Tripels i have tasted in a while.

Bottle. Yellow-orange with a white head that fizzes away. Light malt aroma, spicy, yeasty, citrus (orange peel). Over carbonated. Flavour is sweet, yeasty, tending to bitter peel with spices--coriander, clove, pepper. A nice beer with good qualities.

Shain (60) - ISRAEL - AUG 7, 2014
Tap. Golden body, short white head. Aroma is sweet of toffee and malt, very fruity. Full bodied, with oily to creamy body and soft carbonation. Tastes sweet, with some soft orange sourness and some bitter citrusy, fruity hops. Nicely balanced. Crisp and light, but very full and warming. Strong flavors of warm spices, cloves, orange peel, light malt, toffee, very warming. Some more hops to balance. After taste is strong, very sweat and sticky. Much lighter then I expected, yet full and warm.

Excalibur123 (132) - Soria, SPAIN - AUG 4, 2014
Vierte color amarillo naranja con buena cabeza de espuma que perdura en la copa; en la fase olfativa se aprecia levadura belga, fruta cítrica y galleta; en boca entrada potente con notas a pomelo y miel; el alcohol se siente al paso por la garganta; pos gusto con amargor moderado, tornándose dulce al rato; cuerpo y carbónico medios, muy buena cerveza triple.
