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.

BigBen2120 (688) - Derry, New Hampshire, USA - MAY 27, 2007
750ml bottle from florian’s. Somewhat murky yellow-amber body with an inch of off-white head that persists and leaves a fair bit of lacing as i drink the beer. Smells fruity, like raisin and citrus. Tastes pithy with raisin notes and a hint at apple and spice toward the finish. On the lighter side of medium-bodied. Tasty and almost flawless, but not as good as its cousin (St. Bernardus Tripel).

pours golden with solid head that holds and laces. aroma is spicy with strong mint tones. taste brings back the spice with the same mint character that brings it to an almost medicinal state. it has a nice spice sweet bitter finish. very easy stuff and pretty good overall.

drainey (234) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAY 27, 2007
Bottle. Cloudy light golden body with a big fizzy white head. Slightly sweet aroma with some fruity notes. Flavor is similar, light, with peaches and bananas, and a sizable amount of carbonation that calms down as it warms (yes, I admit I started it too cold).

Adenila (1560) - DENMARK - MAY 27, 2007
Hazy golden with a small white head. Aroma is wheaty and fruity with notes of different esters like raisin and mango along with some citrus and honney. Spicey flavor, but not as powerfull and complex as other tripples i’ve tasted. Its feels abit like a wheat beer, with a desceet bittersour taste and a bitter warming finish. Fresh but not too complex

Bottle: Pours a huge white foamy head. Some sweet malt aroma, a hint of sourness, citrus hops and fruity esters. Flavor is sweet and fruity on the front end with notes of phenolics and belgian spicy yeast, citrusy notes are nice, tastes saisony. Finishes dry and clean.

OleR (4804) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAY 17, 2007
330 ml bottle. Dense and thick lasting white head. Slight unclear, orange/golden body. Inviting fruity and malty aroma; sweet citrus, tropical, honey, mild spices and a very pleasant malty sweetness. Malty flavors as well, also lots of alluring fruits, notes of yeast, toffee and spice. Soft mouthfeel. Lingering, slight bitter and fruity end. Marvellous!

bleeng (1652) - Houston nowhere near Beersel, Texas, USA - MAY 11, 2007
Bottle at Paix Poperinge. Pale gold with slight nose and fading head. Musty, cellar nose. Medium body and spiced flavor. Nothing outstanding or unique about this. Run of the mill Belgium tripel.

nigos (631) - Ipswich, Suffolk, ENGLAND - MAY 9, 2007
Deep orangey copper hue with a large white head. orangey, yeasty and fruity aroma. This follows through to the favour which is rather pleasant. Medium bodied and quite sweet with fairly short finish.

faroeviking (10284) - FAROE ISLANDS - MAY 2, 2007
Big bottle. Pours a hazy golden colour with a big fizzy mostly diminishing white head. Sweet aroma of yeast, malt, fruits and spices, which also are in the flavour though much more profiund and with a good alcohol touch. Bitter hoppy and yeasty finish.

Ughsmash (7507) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - APR 30, 2007
750mL bottle, glad to see it in the area! Poured a healthy shade of medium orange with a medium cap of white head. The aroma is just what I was looking for this evening... sweet lighter fruits with a hefty, well-balanced dose of the house yeast that I adore.. light peppery spices and fresh bread.. quite nice! The flavor had a soft bready base with light fruity esters, moderate peppery spices, and alcohol kick spiking around the tongue. Medium-bodied & well-balanced.. definitely a solid brew!
