33 cl bottle shared two ways. Hazy golden pour with a huge frothy head. Aroma has yeasty notes, grain and sweet honey. Taste has figs, prunes, yeasty notes and some light grainy sweetness. Not as funky as expected, more like an regular triple. Since it was recently brewed I guess it will funk up a bit more as it ages up.

Bottle @ home. Lightly hazed golden color with a big white head. Smells sort of tropical and fruity. Dried pineapple, banana, and a touch of bubblegum. Some pear in there as well. Light spice and some honey. Decent amount of sugar, too. Flavor is on the sweet side with all the fruit character and the sugars. Honey and a bit of light caramel. Big time banana and bubblegum. Decent pineapple, pear, and apple. Some grass and a hint of yeast. Some white pepper.

BrewBoxer (2005) - New York, New York, USA - SEP 18, 2014
Bottle at Cedar grove NYC. Pours a tan brown color with a fluffy head. Yeast and Bret are there but the tripel booze doesn't help it stand out as a wild. Not bad, regardless

330 ml bottle at the Hoppy Pub, Thessaloniki. Hazy golden color with nice white head. Aroma is mostly funky, yeasty, bretty, light malty, hoppy fruity. Taste is the same, sweet, fruity and funky. MEdium body, oily, average carbonation.

Houtmankutkop (17) - NETHERLANDS - SEP 18, 2014
Mooie blijvende schuimkraag. Caramelachtige alcohol geur. Zacht koolzuur. Licht metalige smaak. Zacht voor een tripel, smaakt niet O alcoholig. Straks even kijken of mijn vrouw ook zo kan genieten van mijn Straffe Hendrik...

skaughty (644) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - SEP 16, 2014
2014 bottle @Lord Hobo Cambridge, Light amber pour with medium light head. Sweet cheese aroma. Palate is smooth that guides you right down tripel alley. The "wild" brett is mostly muted by the alcohol. Would benefit by being a little drier. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

malrubius (1711) - Springfield, Vermont, USA - SEP 16, 2014
Bottle from Table & Vine. Hazy golden orange with very fluffy offwhite head and lace. Lemon pixie stix and bready spicy aroma. Tropical fruity with mild farmhouse but more lemony tartness some leather with spicy woody mild bitter finish and some lingering farmhouse fruity tartness. Fairly light body Very good.

(Flasche) Es hat eine dunkelgelbe Farbe, ist klar filtriert mit einer weißen Schaumkrone. Das Aroma ist erfrischend, sauer, mit Limette und einem klein bisschen Pferdedecke. Der Geschmack ist sandig, hefig, alkoholisch und etwas modrig im Abgang

Jayb0 (1029) - Cherry Hill, New Jersey, USA - SEP 14, 2014
Amber gold, solid triple, nice dry finish, present alcohol and bready. The wild aspect is fairly subtle (2014 bottle) but gives a slight sourness and some fruity funk, but overall still solid for the base style

darrennelson12 (412) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 12, 2014
In bottle (beer temple/Brussels); pours a nice golden orange. Aroma somewhat sweet. Taste ... some honey notes, quite watery for a tripel. Overall OK, but much better Belgium options out there
