Miksu (5047) - Jyväskylä, FINLAND - JAN 6, 2007
0.75 l bottle. Hazy golden-peachy color. Pepper, clove, orange, parfume and tobacco in the aroma. Citrus, grapefruit, clove, pepper and bread in the flavor. Strong clovey and orangey in the finish. After a while cloviness is somewhat disturbing and sharp.

DanBerg (59) - Alkmaar, NETHERLANDS - DEC 25, 2006
Pretty nice tripel with a big head. Drank a bottle at home. Not very special, a bit dry. If you want to have a very special tripel, try something else.

(Draught at Monk’s Café, Stockholm, 17 Nov) Golden yellow colour with small head. Fruity, slightly yeasty, nose with notes of dried fruit and spicy hops. Malty, spicy taste with oranges, green apples, yeast and a well balanced spicy and herbal bitterness in the finish. Fairly dry. Nice beer.

PhillyBeer2112 (2740) - Oviedo, Florida, USA - NOV 7, 2006
A fair tripel, with a mild spicy and phenolic nose, fairly sweet if a bit heavy on the palate. Flavor cleaner than you’d want. A bit weak in terms of alcohol content, but at least what’s present is well masked. Cloudy golden color with a big creamy head.

TheGrandMaster (2335) - Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - OCT 25, 2006
Bottle at the Place, the unofficial brewery tap. A clear copper colour with some carbonation and a white bubbly head. Punchy vinuous fruit aroma. Sweet and vinuous at first, the carbonation carrying through to a bitter and dry cleansing finish.

wilkie (1208) - Raleigh, North Carolina, USA - OCT 14, 2006
Bottle. Very fizzy head, very carbonated, some particulate matter. Faint fruity, spice aroma. Flaor is very fruity and sweet, orange, a bit of alcohol in aftertaste. Good balance of sweet/strong/yeast.

BBB63 (6543) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - OCT 5, 2006
Bottle corked and served in NB worthy glass: Looks the part with a clean golden hue topped with a frothy fading white head and very good lace. The nose detects plastic and minerals but then lead on to some apricot, peach, red apple, palm sugar, smoked and toffee malt, grassy and herbal hops, and that Belgium yeast character in toll. The taste is a shocking combination of raw cane sugar, wild flower and smoked malts, WTF? I wanna know where the heck the smokey character came from because in this case it did not belong. Ruined everything I hope for because I just could not taste the sweet fruit, sugary goodness or any woody/earthy flavours contained within. ARGGH, I am confused...
