sonotono (26) - torino, ITALY - FEB 26, 2015
Colore giallo paglierino, leggermente torbida. Schiuma molto abbondante e finissima. Odore speziato, fruttato, leggermente pungente. Dolciastra con finale secco, rotonda e non eccessivamente carbonata.

migwell (52) - Northampton, Massachusetts, USA - FEB 25, 2015
Drinking this out of a Spencer Abbey goblet. Got a surprising overflow of foam on opening. Pours a cloudy pale yellow with a lot of initial head which dissipates into a thin layer. Complex and very well balanced, this is a superior Tripel.

On tap in Cafe Botteltje, Oostende. Light, easy to drink,. Abbey ale, brewed in the classic triple style. Slightly hazy, golden, medium white head. Aroma some sweetness, honey, banana, light spices. Taste malty with some pilsen sweetness (but beer is not swett), some citrus, very smooth. One of the best tripels I ever had.

Gold hazy body with plenty of sediment floating around. Pillow white head at least two fingers worth and stays for a long time.Tangy tart bitter taste. Lemon and bread too.Peppery on the tongue. Creamy feel in the finish.

SinH4 (472) - SWITZERLAND - FEB 20, 2015
Golden color with medium white head. Smell is elegant, bananas, dough. Taste is bananas, dough, spices, with a peppery finish. Carbonation is high. A really really good Tripel with some interesting properties which remind me of an intense Weizenbock.

Bottle. Pours clear glolden with moderate head. Aroma of caramel, cereal and dough. Taste is more of the same with sweat finish. Awesome.

Frothmeister (604) - Ontario, CANADA - FEB 15, 2015
330ml bottle. Pours a hazy golden hue with a giant head of fine off-white bubbles. Tart apple notes, yeasty white bread, mild honey, light damp cement, and apple juice on the nose. Medium sweetness with more wet concrete, black pepper, mild cinnamon, a light graphite note, light golden syrup, and a little bit of a spicy alcohol burn that leads into mild sultana raisin, mineral notes, clove, some prominent spice on the tongue, and lots of mineral notes with some clove that lingers in the finish. Excellent.

UPDATED: FEB 15, 2015 Butelka, warka do 19.11.16. Bardzo ladna, wysoka, biala piana, brudzaca szklo, opadajaca dosc powoli. Piwo samo w miodowym kolorze, metne, wyglad nieco psuje taka szarosc koloru. Aromaty typowo triplowe - owcowosc a la brzoskwinie, banany, troszke tostowosci, oczywiscie drozdze, tez slodowosc, przyprawowosc (w tym niestety tez kolendra, ale delikatna). W smaku kolendra juz mocniejsza. slodkawe choc z dosc wytrawnym finiszem (jest i goryczka w posmakach), jest tez kwaskowatosc. Ewidentnie dobre piwo.alkohol ladnie schowany, niewyczuwalny, mimo, ze pije mlode .Wysokie acz nieprzeszkadzajaco wysycenie. srednio pelne w ustach.
