daknole (10350) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - DEC 2, 2009
Hazy goldish color. White head. Yeast, overripe fruit, old wood aroma. Flavor is yeast, oxidized apples, honey, rotten wood. Hmmm, nope.

hopscotch (10265) - 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.

Maria (10190) - 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.

crossovert (10045) - 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 isnt 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.

Sammy (9992) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 21, 2005
sweet spice. Bottle work of art. Surprisingly refreshing summer drink. Yeast and cream but doesnt 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.

DSG (9343) - 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.

leaparsons (9110) - 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.

jercraigs (9070) - 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.

Borup (8980) - Albertslund, DENMARK - JUL 3, 2015
75 cl. bottle at K15. Golden colour with a white head. Aroma and flavour of malt, hops, fruit, yeast, spice and caramel.
