Ingredients: Water, barley malt, sugar, hops, yeast.
The aroma of this beer is agreeably gentle and is carried by a discreet bitterness while the balance between the malt and hops relies on fruity accents and a lightly fresh aftertaste.

benpickens (463) - Camarillo, California, USA - FEB 16, 2007
Golden copper with lots of carb and a compact long lasting creamy head. Smells of spices, garpefruit, and clover. Sweet and creamy malt with a hoppy finish.

thebeertourist (5158) - Oslo, NORWAY - FEB 16, 2007
Bottle. Cloudy, pale golden with a big offwhite head. Spicy and yeasty aroma with a lot of coriander. Sweet and spiced, great balance. A great trippel.

KnutAlbert (6440) - Oslo, NORWAY - FEB 15, 2007
Bottled. Full taste, some sourness. Very easy-drinking, does not have the real complex flavour to make it outstanding.

The bitterness is present but could be accentuated. Taste doesn’t linger as it should. Very drinkable but not perfected.

JonR888710 (999) - Cochabamba, BOLIVIA - JAN 21, 2007
Lucky to find this bottle at Clichy’s Tavern in the Montemarte neighborhood of Paris. Pours a rich orangish brown with a mighty egg nog head. Aroma is as it should be with fruit malt, spices, banana esters, along with dirt and dust (belgian yeast). Medium bodied beer, if not a little thin. Blesses the tongue with yeast, orange, apple, grape, cardamom and cinnamon. Tasty beer. Finish is wonderfully drying from the hops and ABV. Delicious.

vyvvy (5135) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - JAN 17, 2007
Pours hazy copper / orange with lots of carbonation and a frothy white head. The aroma has white grapes, light fruits, light banana, sweet malt and light earthiness. Medium body that is fairly slick with lots of semi-sharp carbonation that doesn’t interfer with the flavors though. The flavor starts with light fruit and banana with sweet pils-like malt and pepper and other spices. The finish is sweet and adds lushness to the existing flavors although the spices are no longer apparent. Not my favorite of the style, but still a solid tripel.

BiochemProf (179) - Boone, North Carolina, USA - JAN 16, 2007
Slightly hazy golden pour with a foamy 1-finger white head. Yeasty, pilsner like aroma. Metallic butterscotch taste.

nick76 (4336) - Tampa, Florida, USA - JAN 15, 2007
The aroma has yeast, maple syrup, light fruit, and malt. The appearance is blond with a light orange hue. The flavor is like the aroma with much emphasis on the maple syrup. The palate is much thinner than it should be. Overall it’s a very interesting beer in the taste department but the texture is like water.

Enniskillen (2044) - Salinas, California, USA - JAN 13, 2007
Foggy orange, gold body, thin white head. Aroma is cinnamon, nutmeg, grapefruit, yeasty with a pleasant hop background. Taste has the initial yeastiness and spices up front, with light alcohol warming.

UPDATED: MAY 30, 2007 750ml -2005 - shared by atpayne 5/25/07 - Aroma is bready yeast, lemon and alcohol. Pours cloudy yellow with a medium head and good lacing. Flavor matches aroma with a nice peppery finish. Palate is smooth and creamy. Something about this mellower version struck me as a lot tastier.

RERATE - original rating 7/4/6/4/15=3.6 from 12/15/2006 - 330ml - 010607 on bottle - Aroma is sour bread dough, lemon, spice and alcohol. Initial pour was gold until I dumped most of the yeast which turned it a muddy brown. Big fluffy head and great lacing. Flavor matches aroma. Palate is creamy and smooth with a touch of tartness. Not a bad tripel and worth a try.
