Maria (10191) - Thisted, DENMARK - MAR 28, 2009
Thisted tasting. Courtesy of Fonefan. Comes as Grand Cru. It is golden with a white, creamy head. The aroma has notes of perfumed malt, cabbage and yeast. The flavour has sweetness and a citrussy bitterness and notes of malt, light fruit and yeast. It is surprisingly thin-bodied, a bit of a disappointment.

hopscotch (10080) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - MAR 22, 2008
Bottle... Cloudy yellow ale with a small, fizzy, white head. Lots of white protein floaties tooling about the brew. Yeasty, sweet-honey aroma with mild spice phenols. Medium-bodied with a watery mouthfeel and reserved carbonation. Sweet, spicy flavor with lots of pale grains, clove and/or coriander. Yuk! Finishes watery and lightly bitter.

Benzai (9999) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - JUN 12, 2014
Bottle @ weekly tasting shared with Dutchdrebus and Ansjelaah. Hazy almost opaque orangy color, medium sized white head. Smell malts, some fruityness, lightly sweet. Taste lightly malts, a slight fruityness, a bit more bitter in the flavor. Not bad.

Sammy (9537) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 21, 2005
sweet spice. Bottle work of art. Surprisingly refreshing summer drink. Yeast and cream but doesn’t seem a triple. Better than expected and popular with mates. Fruit, honey, suitably noticeably carbonated. Medium-light mouthfeel, lace and soap bubbles on top of golden yellow.

crossovert (9190) - Illinois, USA - MAR 13, 2011
16fl oz white ceramic flip-top botte. It pours extremely light for a Tripel, more like a belgian strong pale, it is a crystal clear/very pale gold with a huge, billowing white head that recedes with a ton of fine lacing. It smells delightful, with big yeast notes, honey, and a massive fruitiness. The flavor isn’t as potent as the smell, btu it is great. It is subtle and fruity, with clean malts and a grassy hop note. The finish is sweet and caramally, but never cloying. The alcohol is well in check. The mouthfeel is prickly but not overwhelming. The drinkability is nearly tops.

leaparsons (8837) - Leicester, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - NOV 13, 2004
Golden with an off-white head of foam. Aromas are floral and hoppy with some nuttiness - oddly like some English bitters. Flavours are bitter and hoppy primarily with some sweet malts lurking in the background. Could be stronger on the final straight - the finish is spicy but lacking in oomph.

Quack-Duck (8568) - Down South, GERMANY - DEC 29, 2007
nice ceramic bottle with crowncap and swing-top. Golden colour, enormously large head. Creamy mouthfeel. Hoppy and pleasnatly malty. Well-balanced, slightly yeasty and fruity.

DocLock (8529) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 16, 2006
Bottle from Super Saver. Great ceramic pop-top bottle! The pour was deep gold/dark straw with a minimal white head. The aroma was bready malty, with some fruit, hopcit, but not a lot of intensity. The flavor was pale malty and honeyfied, with some fruit (pear, apricot), and hopcit, plus some spicy floral notes. Not bad, but not a standout, either.

jercraigs (8485) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 15, 2005
Bottle. Caffe Volo. Golden body, very small white head diminishes quickly. Alcoholic sweet malty aroma. Flavour is inappropriately over-run by the alcohol, with barely a glimpse of the underlying malt. Average palate. Disappointing.

DSG (8444) - Tel Aviv, - JUL 28, 2012
Bottle. As "St. Sebastiaan Grand Cru". Clear deep golden with a nice, big, stable white head. Aroma has some fruitiness, alcohol, some floral and grassy hops and light grainy hints. Rather sweet alcoholic flavor with some malt, honey notes, some fruitiness, yeasty notes and a drier finish, slightly spicy, with light bitterness and some more alcohol. Medium-bodied. So-so.
