12oz Bottle: Not a bad experience at all. Iím not usually a tripel fan, but this was quite pleasant. Plenty of sweet fruity undertones follow a slightly dry nit-too-boozy finish. The nose was a bit under-pronounced, but it was poured into a pint glass, so not necessarily the brewís fault. Included in a 6pk selection featuring mostly St. Bernardus, I thought this really stood out on itís own for what I had expected to be an unimportant "extra" in the selection.

Spab (2940) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 26, 2015
330 ml bottle from LCBO (part of St Bernardus Mixed Pack). Pours a cloudy bright straw yellow with good-sized, lasting white head. Aroma is sweet tree fruit, clove, cereal grains and some earthiness. Flavour has lots of lemon, apple and pineapple fruitiness, some clove and pepper, a little candy sugar, graininess and a light earthiness. Lively carbonation. Nice one.

33cl bottle part of a taster pack. 7.5% alc / vol. Pours a hazy deep gold colour with one finger of white head. Aroma of strawberries, rhubarb, bananas and Belgian yeast. Refreshing, fruity Taste with a spicy finish. High carbonation. Solid Belgian tripel with a light and refreshing fruity taste. Itís just as good as St. Bernardusí Tripel, if not better.

Bottle from Mam and Dadís holiday Ypres, Belgium. A cloudy golden beer that pours with a large head of white foam. It has a flavour of pineapple and slight sour citrus fruits followed by a clean peppery hoppy and earthy finish. Nice!

rondphoto (3169) - Lakeside Park, Kentucky, USA - OCT 19, 2015
bottle @ Party Town / Florence KY --- Hazy dirty medium amber color, white head cover, curtain of lace. Aroma of malt and cereal. Taste is bracing semi-sweet malt and yeast that has a strong carbonation edge as it moves through the palate, continuing to pure bittering that turns sweeter with fruit and bubblegum as it drifts through the finish. Some alcohol warmth turns up late. Yes, itís a traditional Abbey Ale, but, very well done. Recommended.

Vells (1147) - Rīga, LATVIA, LATVIA - OCT 17, 2015
Feels very standard Tripel, tho balance makes it enjoyable. Intense maltiness, some toast, bit candy sugar, some dried fruits, bit bubble gum, some hops in background. Bit too overcarbonated for my like. Moderate to light sweetness, light bitterness. Well balanced and pleasant brew

Carlisle (278) - Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 15, 2015
Bottle. Cloudy, deep honey color with thick, big bubbles, off-white head. Candied sugar aroma with malt notes. Sweet citrus malt upfront followed by clove and pleasant hop bitterness. Some warming alcohol and a crisp bite in the finish. Mouthcoating and full-bodied. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
