bask (305) - Leuven, BELGIUM - AUG 29, 2005
Clear golden coloured body with a white head. Aroma of spices, orange, yeast, almost like a witbier. Those spices are clearly present in the flavour. Average but not bad.

bluevegie (3063) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - AUG 12, 2005
Slightly hazy, dull, light golden/straw coloured body with a large frothy white head. Aroma of yeast, spice and green apples. Smooth drinking, pepper, butter, light in body and not too much else.
Earlier Rating: 4/19/2004 Total Score: 3.2
Large white pillowy head sitting atop of a clear golden straw body. Slight citrus aroma. Lemon buttery taste, a little spice, alcohol hidden, a little thin but drinks well.

A yeasty and hoppy brew with significant carbonation. Bit of sour yeast smell wih other herbs. Herbal. Straw pale yellow with a white foamy head. Drinkable, maybe some melon and pineapple, last night’s fruit salad. but average all together.

sayravai (4673) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JUL 31, 2005
(Bottled) Hazy greenish yellow color with a medium, big-bubbled head. Acidic and papery aroma with a lemon twist and some toffeeish sugar. Acidic, lemony, somewhat yeasty and lightly spicy flavor with a bitterish finish. Medium-bodied, moderately carbonated, acidic and papery palate. A very basic, quite characterless tripel. I read this is actually Triple Moine, but I’ve found it slightly better than this.
Earlier Rating: 11/13/2004 Total Score: 3.4
(Bottled) Hazy, light yellow color with a quite large head. Slightly lemony, dryish and hoppy aroma with orange. Slightly yeasty, a bit sour and semi-dry, quite fruity flavor. Somewhat sugary-sweet finish. Smooth, foamy carbonated, medium-bodied palate. A well-balanced and enjoyable, quite straightforward and carbonated triple.

1-Apr-05 Heaps of fruit aroma some earthiness, light malt. Good head and reasonable lacing, golden hazy colour. Light in all departments, fruit, hop and malt. Light hoppy tanginess.

White wine grapes in the aroma. Gold with a white head. Citric flavours dominate, with some mild malty notes. Medium bodied, ok.

chriso (7475) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 25, 2005
Pours a golden colour with a big rocky head, although that didn’t last too long. Didn’t get much aroma. At first I thought it was because it was too cold but not much emerged even as it warmed. Mildly fruity with maybe a touch of honey, but not much else. Flavour is mainly citrus fruit and apples. The finish is quite bitter with maybe a bit too much acidity. Has a bit of an afterburn. The mouthfeel is rather odd - thin but at the same time slightly oily and syrupy. Pleasant enough but nothing special. 250ml bottled from beersofeurope.co.uk. I notice that others have referred to a vintage date and have aged it for quite a few years. Mine had no indication of vintage and carried a BBE date of 5/12/04. So maybe mine was a very old bottle or they’ve changed the beer in some way.

muzzlehatch (4424) - Burlington, Vermont, USA - JUN 23, 2005
Sample from 330 ml bottle at the Mondial. Massive bubbling in the lightly hazy gold body, long lasting head...spicy-sweet, yeasty nose, bit of apple...initially light mouthfeel, fairly malty, but in the middle heavy yeast comes in and it turns quite thick and full, honey and ripe fruit (apricot, pineapple), lightly bitter, smoky-herbal dry finish. I likes it fine.

ClarkVV (3902) - Allston, Massachusetts, USA - JUN 10, 2005
UPDATED: OCT 3, 2007 2004 bottle, if not 2005 even, sampled at the Mondial, 6/4/05. Small white head that recedes to cover. Lightly hazy straw body with some amber on the edges. Smells of dry yeast, very dusty and quite Belgian. Flavor is yeasty to start, but then, unexpectedly, I get some hop bitterness, rather plant-like or herbal, I suppose, but noticeably bitter (though nothing crazy). Bits of honey and light dough, well-malted, with low, tingly carbonation. Medium body, no thinning. Cookies, sweet dough, vanilla iced cream linger on . . . . and then Barry knocked the glass over and tried to blame it on me or Stephen.
