illiniphil (141) - Nashotah, Illinois, USA - APR 28, 2013
Pours a dark golden with a heavy, white one finger head. Yeasty nose, nice carbonation, light fruity notes and not too sweet. Didn't notice much of an alcohol burn. Excellent version of the style. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

dnicolaescu (1440) - Chișinău, MOLDOVA - APR 21, 2013
Head: white, medium, frothy. Colour: amber and clear. Aroma: fruity in a refreshing way (a minty perhaps?), not as dry as other tripels. Taste: again some refreshing sweetness, like a minty lollipop, a bit of bitterness and just a drop of sour bite in the finish. Maybe some alcohol too. Not too much yeast and phenolics detected. Apart from the colour, it is very similar to Westmalle. I actually copied the comments. :)

rane (974) - Nibe, DENMARK - APR 18, 2013
Bottle. Dark golden with dense white head. Aroma sweet malts, apples. Taste sweet malty, a little alcohol burn, sugar, a little low in carbonation. A great example of a difficult style that often tends to be cloying,

JK54B (1539) - Helsinki, FINLAND - APR 15, 2013
Yeasty nose. Pale head. Clear golden color. Slightly sweet fruity and hoppy taste with some lemon notes. Average hops. Adding sediment brought haziness.

Darwenus (690) - Virginia, USA - APR 4, 2013
A cloudy lemon/orange with a big, crackling, foamy head. The aroma is spicy and fruity, lots of citrus and bananas. There’s more of that in the flavor, with a rich caramel malt and some heat from the 9% ABV. There is a ton of carbonation and this thing is really alive in the mouth. I liked it a lot.

UPDATED: JUN 13, 2013 Goudkleurig, mistig bier met stevige, witte schuimkraag. Aroma is mouten, fruitig, alcohol, gist, schors. Smaak begint licht zoet, eindigt meer droog. Medium tot behoorlijk bitter. Medium tot volle body, medium co2. Goede tripel!

Duvelfan (139) - Getxo (Basque Country), - MAR 31, 2013
Botella de 33 cl. Aroma a lúpulo y cítricos. Espuma abundante, densa y duradera. Color ambar claro, precioso. En boca viene lo mejor. No muy dulce para ser un tripel, compleja, sabores afrutados. Los 9 grados se notan poco a poco, no de golpe. Excelente. Me recuerda en boca mucho a Duvel.
