Habanero (2862) - Tranbjerg, DENMARK - DEC 29, 2012
Bottled. Pours slightly hazy and pale golden with a large white head. Nose of caramel, bread, yeast, floral hops and grassy notes. Sweet flavor that ends up more dry and with a mild bitterness. Medium bodied, oily texture and avarage to lively CO2. An OK - classic triple. ★★★

Oakes (13021) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 20, 2012
Hazy tan, medium head. The aroma is yeasty, slightly spicy and bready. The taste is spicy, sweet at first, with pale malt and then dry later on. Decent tripel.

IlBevitorediLA (452) - ITALY - DEC 14, 2012
UPDATED: DEC 15, 2012 Aroma potente, robusto, fruttato a tratti floreale e mediamente alcolico. Bionda con un bel cappello di schiuma. Entrata corposa con dolci fruttati equilibrati da una buona carbonatura e sopratutto dallíalcol. La luppolatura (lieve) si fa notare solo alla fine. Una tripel classica fatta bene.

ShivanDragon (1912) - Leeuwarden, NETHERLANDS - NOV 30, 2012
UPDATED: DEC 19, 2012 aroma van fruit, parfum, maar wel vrij weinig
ziet eruit als een pilsje smaak van gerst en tarwe, redelijk bitter, pittig en behoorlijk alcoholisch.

KoNrRiI (600) - Ňrhus, DENMARK - NOV 22, 2012
0.75 bottle. Nice blonde color, cloudy with a small white head. Quite strong and definitely sweet appealing hop aroma composed mostly of banana, citrus and a tad of coriander. Resolute, sweet taste with a note of bitterness in the background, slowly emerging as one savors the sip. Medium body, creamy texture and a soft carbonation which could be qualified as average for its style. Finish is long, repeats the slight background bitterness which stops the beer from being sugary, and introduces a thick gluey sensation to the palate. All in all the beer is splendid, in many features pretty similar to a typical German Hefeweizen, yet not as refreshing and crisp. Might be overly sweet to some but definitely worth a try.
