Hugh (161) - Zillebeke, BELGIUM - JUL 1, 2007
Pathetic. truely feeble, little flavour at all. So completely anonymous, that calling it ’tripel blonde’ implies that the makers know it doesn’t carry any of the alledged alcohol feel in the beer. Claims bottle refermentation, but how it that possible with the infinitesimal whisp of yeast in the bottle. With the best efforts to get this into the beer, still looked crystal clear and has none of the flavour development of a beer with secondary fermentation. Misleading label credits the beer to fake brewery name rather than the real brewers. Waste of my money.

ekstedt (5648) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - JUN 29, 2007
Draught at the Rover, Göteborg, Sweden. Deep hazy golden with a medium creamy head. Malty aroma with some yeast and earthy notes, and some grassy hoppiness. Medium bodied and very smooth. Slightly sweet, with a moderate bitterness.

Marko (4094) - Split / Zagreb, CROATIA - JUN 26, 2007
UPDATED: JUN 27, 2007 Bottle at the Hopdevil. Poured an orange-golden body with a tiny white head that went really fast. The nose is weak, bit vinuous and sourish. The taste is... mouth puckeringly dry, bit malty, but weak and an even weaker hopiness. Grainy. Nothing distinct, nothing special. Kinda pleasant but watery and dull.

janubio (453) - SPAIN - FEB 25, 2007
A golden clean colour and the head it pours makes this one looks like a common lager rather than an abbey tripel. Light aroma of some coriander, apricots. Light in the tongue too, a bit fruity and metalic also, with some sulphur. I find it rather dull and plain.

ogivlado (6012) - Zagreb, CROATIA - NOV 22, 2006
Bottled(330ml). -alc. 8%. Clear golden coloured, small white head. Sweet malty and spicy aroma with notes of coriander, honey and fruit. Short hoppy finish. Quite weak brew for 8.0%ABV.

Hansen (6957) - Assentoft, DENMARK - NOV 16, 2006
Dark yellow. Head is white and mostly lasting. Aroma is sweet. Flavor too. Notes of spice, don’t know which, some cookie-spice perhaps.

haukur (1345) - Reykjavik, ICELAND - SEP 8, 2006
excellent aroma of oranges, citrus, hops and peaches. Taste is a tad sweet, floral, tiny bitterness and just fades out... Very straight forward tripel, a bit thin, not bad but not exceptional. It is incredibly well masked though, I´ll give it that

oh6gdx (21061) - Vasa, FINLAND - JUL 9, 2006
Bottled. Golden colour, not much head. Aroma is semisweet, and has some notes of alcohol. Flavour is quite sweet overall, almost like some of the sweeter Eastern European Lagers... Still, quite close to nothing, and boring.

sayravai (4673) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JUL 8, 2006
UPDATED: SEP 4, 2007 (Bottled, re-rate, BBE 08/2008, sampled 09/2007) Slightly hazy golden color with a small head. Sweetish, honey-malty aroma with some alcohol and hints of mushrooms. Sweetish-malty, pear-fruity, dull-honeyish flavor, some cardboard, hints of spiciness, and a bit alcoholic finish. Medium-bodied palate with pretty low carbonation. Harmless, uninteresting, European-strong-lagery.
