BarryKonrad (107) - NORWAY - FEB 3, 2013
Slightly hazy golden colour. Huge fluffy white head that lasts. Yeast and bread in aroma, and a floral touch. Medium mouthfeel. Flavour is yeast and some citrus with a dry finish that has a sting of alcohol. Very decent tripel.

tfredvik (1355) - Oslo, NORWAY - FEB 3, 2013
Pours a beautiful light amber to light golden body that is almost clear, but it has this little craft beer-ish haze. The head is large, creamy, white and stays as a thick, dense layer till the very end. Foam keeps sticking on the walls of the glass until it’s empty. The aroma is strong, sweet and pleasant with all the right elements in place: yeast, spices, a whiff of honey and some citric notes in the back. The taste is moderate to light sweet with a moderate bitter, light dry finish. Quite strong flavours with yeast, spices, honey and some refreshing floral notes, or maybe it’s closer to perfume, due to the quite obvious alcohol. The body is medium to full, and despite the quite lively carbonation the texture feels oily. A very nice triple indeed.
[33 cl bottle, enjoyed 5 months after bottling/13 months before BB date, from Vinmonopolet St. Hanshaugen, Oslo]

berlinoise2go (665) - NORWAY - FEB 2, 2013
Bottle (33cl) from Vinmonopolet, Vikersund. Slightly hazy, pale golden colour. Huge, fluffy, white head, good retention, leaves scattered lacing. Aroma of yeast, banana, yellow melon, elderflower, citrus, butter, metal. Medium body, lively carbonation. Semi-sweet taste, balanced by a solid bitterness, and a mild acidity. Dry herbal/citrus/bitter aftertaste.

Holmen1 (3409) - Stavanger, NORWAY - FEB 1, 2013
Flaske fra Polet: tårnhøjt, fluffy skum som varer i mitt Duvel-glass. Gylden, lett uklar farge. Beskjeden aroma som domineres av nellik, koriander og litt frukt. Fornemmer jeg en anelse av banan? Smaken er bitrere enn mange andre tripel, og bitterhet dominerer også ettersmaken. Litt alkoholsødme, men ikke den typiske tripelsødme som jeg foretrekker.

Bamsen78 (4271) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - FEB 1, 2013
Bottle. Pours clear golden with airy white head. Clear, sweet aroma of malt, hop and caramel with a distinct boozy note. Well-balanced malty and sweetish taste, enriched by spicy, caramellish, fruity and burning notes. Good, dry aftertaste.
