SilkTork (5123) - Rochester, Kent, United Kingdom, Kent, - OCT 7, 2012
330ml brown glass bottle brought back from Belgium by Chrissie. Oh, so lovely. A high abv, high temperature fermentation pale malt beer without too much hops getting in the way. Soft melted plastic and honey nose, and smooth, sweet and fragrant mouth. Heavenly stuff - even better than Carlsberg Special Brew. A little bit of smudgy bitterness in the finish. Very drinkable, and very moreish. Lovely job.

RickFifty (164) - Fredrikstad, NORWAY - APR 23, 2014
Golden color, white frothy head. Yeasty, fruity and spicy nose, hints of banana and mild acetone. Sweet fruity taste, spice, metallic notes, hint of alcohol. Lively carbonation, medium body, warming finish.

IPAgutten79 (363) - Skui, NORWAY - APR 20, 2014
Lys gylden med relativt lavt skum. Aromaen er malt og gjær, samt noe banan. I smaken finner jeg samme, pluss noe krydder. Medium konsistens, litt tørr.

Scrapersnbeer (1439) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - APR 7, 2014
Soft fruity malt aroma, a touch of wheat spiciness. Hazy yellow, plenty of carbonation, huge fluffy head. A lot of banana and spices for flavor, also tartness and alcohol. Foamy body, but not accurate to describe it a slight in any sense. Average tripel ale, wheat beer elements aside.

arsol (417) - NORWAY - MAR 23, 2014
Gul farge med fluffy hvitt skum. Lukter malt, gjær og alkohol. Litt vinøs i smak. Smaker også godt at denne har 9%.

Korngul uklar med tynt hvitt skum. Malt og gjær samt noe alkohol lukt. Smaker alkohol, malt og gjær. Lite kullsyre, litt tam ettersmak.

mikkellund42 (494) - DENMARK - FEB 15, 2014
Bottle. Pours clear golden yellow with large white head. Aroma is yeast, milk, peach, cloves and dough. Taste is medium sweet and medium bitter. Body is dry and light oily with good carbonation. Finish is medium long with notes of fruit, caramel and yeast.

Borresteijn (4410) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - FEB 8, 2014
Sample from a 33cl bottle at Triple A’dam. Almost clear deep golden colour, white head. Aroma of citrus, light spicy, sweet fruits, malts. Flavour is medium-sweet, malty, fruity, alcohol, quite some citrus, bitter hoppy and alcohol finish. Medium to full-bodied, a tad over-carbonated. Tasty tripel, the best of the four we tasted.

jaghana (3503) - Strasbourg (France), FRANCE - FEB 4, 2014
Bottle 33cl, a clear yellow beer, nose is on belgian yeast with banana and light lemon notes. Aroma is near a weizenbock beer, good malty basis, sweet, banana, wheat, phenolic, some spices such as paradise seeds, bubble gum, cardamom. Again banana notes at the finish with good bitterness and a peppery hops notes. Good beer.

Not a great beer. A lesser version of Karmeliet. Lacks the freshness or bitterness of a good blond.
