TtV (208) - Nijmegen, NETHERLANDS - APR 4, 2015
Bottle 33cl. Almost clearly yellow with a medium white top that lasts for sometime. Aroma is sweet with malt hints. The taste is less sweet as expected from the nose. There’s a spicy touch with some bitterness. Lots of Co2 too. The warm glow of alcohol is present in the aftertaste (in the throat).

MarkoNm (1199) - Novo mesto, SLOVENIA - FEB 24, 2015
Pours a fairly clear pale golden color, topped with lots of white head and heavy carbonation. Mild fruity aroma, some yeasty notes. Taste quite yeasty, with some earthy notes later on and some fruity in the finish. Not exactly the best, but not completely bad.

thirstyrabbit (1362) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - FEB 6, 2015
Bottle. Pale golden body, tall to medium head. Nice bready Tripel aroma. Sweet yeasty taste with white bread and dull apricots. Carbonation is very high, makes it fizzy and difficult to drink. Average Abbey Tripel, it has its moments and I like that it wasn’t cloying.

martjoobolut (1370) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JAN 8, 2015
0,33L bottle (from Wine of Galilee), BB 07.17. Pours Clear golden with off-white head. The head stays. Aroma is sweet, fresh fruits, yeast. Flavor is very sweet, fruits, yeast, malt, very mild bitterness. Alcohol is well covered. Overall: ok brew. No notable hops, so I would say it’s actually more Belgian strong ale than tripel for me.

gunnar (6199) - Sandnes, NORWAY - DEC 14, 2014
Bottle from a trade with Douberd. Pours clear golden with a big creamy white head. Aroma is light fruity,with moderate sweet malts and sugars. Lively spritzy mouthfeel. Taste is light sweet, sugars, marzipan with a decent dry grassy finish, weak burn from the alcohol. Not my favourite style, but this one was enjoyable.

Marduk (3623) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - NOV 14, 2014
330ml bottle. Pale golden color. Small size, white head, stays. Fruity, bit of dead yeast, white pepper, slightly sour notes in aroma. Caramel, yeast, dried apricot, slight notes of pineapple and alcohol in taste. High carbonation. Sweet alcohol in aftertaste. Dry mouthfeel. Drinkability: pathetic.
