It was good, not that great as some other beers, but nice for a session, the orange tatse i very good, and the foam.

JPDIPSO (5450) - Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 12, 2006
Hazy straw color with a taller fluffy white head 3+. Mild banana and orange aromas, with just a hint of biscuits. Very sweet and "raw" tasting. Some vegetable and other hints of DMS. Chalk and mild apple are also in the mix. I can see hos a triple could get a bad name. Bland, sweet, boring, with just enough off flavors to nearly make this one sickening.

hughie (3996) - Bedford, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - SEP 12, 2006
Golden with a large white head. yesty aroma. Taste is a bit thin. There are sweet, spicy malts, but overall it’s rather subdued and uninspiring. Plenty of better tripels than this.

DruncanVeasey (7999) - NUNEATON, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - AUG 9, 2006
UPDATED: AUG 17, 2006 Sweet, malty, vaguely spiced sticky Tripel. Lagery, crystal clear gold. Zzz. Not a bubble in sight. Barely noticed it was there. Not half as hoppy as the barman would have you believe. Van t’vat in t’Brugs Beertje.

Cornfield (5570) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - AUG 5, 2006
Big pop at the uncapping, but no foam eruption. It poured a slightly hazed, bright yellow body with a dense, fizzy head. The aroma is of sharply sweet malts, yeast, apples & pears, and a small whiff of alcohol. Highly (but not annoyingly so) carbonated, with a spritzy, peppery mouthfeel. (Still, quite belch inducingly gaseous.) The flavor reflects the aroma with a slight addition of spiciness. Dry finish. Very drinkable.

jpm30 (1587) - East Central, Georgia, USA - AUG 4, 2006
From a 750 ml. caged cork brown bottle with a best before date on the back label, 19.04.09. Poured a cloudy with sediment, bright pale golden with a fizzy, foamy head that settled into a thin sudsy lacing, minimal amount of sticking. Aromas of earthy yeast, coriander, orange zest, sour green apple and spicy hops. Good carbonation and a crisp, dry, carbonated smooth light bodied mouthfeel. Pleasant tasting, coriander, sour apple hard candy, orange peel, dry earthy yeastiness, sweet malty with a light touch of honey and spicy hops that have a soft bitterness, nice Belgian ale drinkability, could be dangerously quaffable. A tasty and balanced Belgian Tripel, if you like Belgian ales, this is worth trying.

Hansen (8289) - Assentoft, DENMARK - JUL 31, 2006
Orange colour. Too weak a aroma, kind a thin. The same goes fore the flavor, too thin for a triple. No spice.
Earlier Rating: 10/19/2003 Total Score: 3.4
Pours a large head. Orange colored. Spice in the aroma together with orange/citrus. Not enough malt, to be one of the great.

reakt (950) - Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 30, 2006
UPDATED: SEP 2, 2007 Bottle from Utobeer: Great looking and great tasting beer. Hazy yellow colour with a thick white head. Flavour like a wit with a subtle fruity/appley hint. Very refreshing.

beastiefan2k (3312) - Emerald City (formely NYC & KS), Washington, USA - JUL 30, 2006
750 cork and wire. Cork No. 144302. Color is more yellow than golden, small head. Looks macro-ish. Aroma is present - wheaty fishy smell with light candi sweetness. Taste is similar. As a friend pointed out this was more like a Leffe Blond than a tripel.
