ARMed (601) - Garnet Valley, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 13, 2003
An exception Christmas Dubbel. Smooth fruity taste with a blond duppel taste. Clear orange color with a moderate white bubbly head. Poor lacing but a good flavor. Slightly hoppy but overall an exceptional ale.

sayravai (4673) - Helsinki, FINLAND - DEC 12, 2003
UPDATED: DEC 2, 2005 (Bottled) Golden color with a medium head. Sweetish, slightly sour, banana-fruity berry aroma. Grainy-malty, a bit papery flavor with some spiciness and a fading, dryish finish. Medium-bodied, foamy-carbonated palate. A quite boring Belgian.

diabel (1607) - Aarschot, BELGIUM - NOV 26, 2003
Bottled. Blond, golden colour. Little treble with white head. Malt and spicy aroma. A spicy and alcoholic aroma. A little bit Duvel-like.

JorisPPattyn (7908) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - NOV 22, 2003
Amber/orange; fluffy, yellowish head. Herbal nose, crystal malt, meaty and yeasty, however filtered. Honey-ish taste, with a harsh bitter edge; a herbal concoction from the pharmacy. Syrupy mouthfeel, again meaty impression. This is not exactly my favourite. Beer of very weak quality, tastewise.

bierkoning (10199) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - JUL 7, 2003
Amber orange color, small head. Malty, hoppy flowery aroma. Sweet hoppy perfumed flavor with a hint of tartness. Nice, but maybe a bit simple.

argo0 (11530) - Washington DC, USA - MAR 6, 2003
Clear orange body (though it becomes cloudy at the end of the pour) with small white head. Aroma is sweet -- orange and butterscotch. Taste is moderately sweet, mostly orange. Also some yeast and spice, and a hint of alcohol. Beer is much improved in the second pour -- most of the flavor seems to have sunk to the bottom of the bottle.

skortila (4505) - Baarn, NETHERLANDS - JAN 15, 2003
UPDATED: MAR 28, 2005 Aroma is okay, average typical tripel aroma. Citrus and spices aroma. It has a big head with big bubbles. Cloudy, Golden orange coloured. Taste is watery, bit alcoholic. Spices and fruits. Smooth palate, really good in this one, bit hopbitter.

Ungstrup (29284) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JAN 8, 2003
A slightly cloudy orange beer with a fine very foamy head, but it disappears quite fast. It has a quity strong very nice aroma of fruit, yeast and oranges with notes of alcohol. The flavor is smooth with a good sweetness containing orange and yeast notes and ending on a slight very nice bitterness.
