Pours a light orange gold with a decent foamy white head. Aromas of pale fruits and Belgian yeast/spice. Near full body with creamy carbonation. Flavor is quite fruity, spicey and not very sweet. It tends to develop a fresh fruitiness with time. Excellent.

330 ml bottle (marked as 8,7%). Golden color, frothy off-white head. Spicy aroma. Spicy flavor with lemon peel and hops and a dry finish. Medium-full body, high carbonation. Similar to their blonde beer, but better.

hopscotch (10532) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - NOV 16, 2009
Bottle … Clear, light golden ale with a small, dense, white head. Great retention. The bouquet offers banana, clove, coriander and gentle tinges of mint and smoke. Medium-bodied with a raspy mouthfeel and prickly carbonation. The flavor is sweet toffee, candy sugar and spicy clove up front; moderate to medium metallic bitterness follows. The finish provides lingering honey and toffee sweetness.

BeerBelcher (972) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - NOV 16, 2009
This wasn’t the big spice bomb that I usually associate with the tripel style, which made it unique and a touch novel. This beer is far maltier than any other tripels, and still has enough spice to keep things interesting. A little different than my previous experiences with tripels, but still good. Appearance was a golden color with a pretty minor amount of head for a tripel. Aroma was very faintly spicey - clove and all-spice. Flavor was a bit puckery and full of fruity overtones, with a sweet spice finish. Booze is evident in the flavor, but not unpleasant. Mouthfeel was dry and clean. Pretty good, and recommendable. I had this on-tap at the BXL Belgian cafe in midtown Manhattan.

Stefano (1947) - Thisted, DENMARK - NOV 7, 2009
Golden colour with a huge white head. Aroma is malt and heavy alcohol. Flavor is very spicy, too much for a tripel. Dry aftertaste, not the best tripel.

marcus (8807) - Sacramento, California, USA - NOV 2, 2009
This clear golden ale poured with a generous off-white head and a sweet fruity aroma. It has a typical Belgian tripel flavor, which is yeasty, carbonated and spice-laden, with some banana ester. However, there is a harsh element, perhaps from the spices, that makes this brew a bit less pleasant than the top beers of this style.

malrubius (2483) - Springfield, Vermont, USA - OCT 31, 2009
Bottle at pilsnerpeter’s. Thanks to everybody for their generosity. Hazy orange with head. Very clovey spicy yeasty grassy aroma. Spicy orangy honey sweet vanilla. Sweet. Pretty ok.

JoeMcPhee (9244) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 30, 2009
Pale golden pour. White head. The nose is light spicy and pleasantly dry. A bit of light wheaty malt and a kiss of clove and light mint. Lean and dry initially but as it warms, it starts to pick up a touch of honeyed sweetness. It’s pretty simple, but it’s well made and quite tasty.

puzzl (3257) - New York, New York, USA - OCT 21, 2009
Bottled. Another messy tripel. It seems that aren’t more than maybe 5 people on the planet that can brew this style right. Moderately cloudy with a small foam cap. Banana, clove, and a mild doughy note in the aroma hint at good things to come, but the letdown is inevitable. A weird, half-sweet, very vegetal and astringent flavor presents itself, making the beer very hard to drink. Swing and a miss.
