pintbypint (3012) - Edmonton, Alberta, - DEC 29, 2005
330ml brown bottle. Poured hazy orange gold, lots of particles floating about. Head is small and thin, but covers the entire surface in tiny tight white bubbles. Light oranges in the aroma, and honey sweetness. Quite a lot of body, creamy mouthfeel, very fine smooth carbonation. Flavour is again honeyish malts, some subdued lemon notes, spicy yeast and a clingy hoppy finish, good dryness.

Frothmeister (650) - Ontario, CANADA - SEP 14, 2015
330ml bottle. Pours a pale straw colour with very faint haze and a one finger head of fine white bubbles. On the nose an interesting faint lime peel aroma, mineral notes, the ol’ Belgian yeast/wet concrete notes, light chamomile, and honey. Taste is mineral heavy with a sweet undertone up front that leads into more mineral heavy hops with Belgian yeast, light citrus, and honey with a bitter finish. Though an ale, it kind of comes across as a kickass Euro-lager. Great stuff!

Dorata, velata dai lieviti, schiuma bianca poco persistente. Aroma di pepe e chiodi di garofano, banana e uva passa, zucchero caramellato, balsamico. Al palato chiodi di garofano, balsamica e uva passa, in secondo piano banana e zucchero caramellato, amaro erbaceo misto a fieno nel finale; abbastanza equilibrata. Corpo medio, mediamente carbonata, retrolfatto pepato e balsamico.

Very nice tripel! Hazy blonde pour with a thin head. Spotty lacing. Nice flavours of yeasts, dark fruits, sugars, and dough. Soft carbonation. Good balance.

overtheline (96) - Inverness, SCOTLAND - AUG 24, 2015
Pours a hazy light amber. Medium white head that does not last. Light nose, spice and some fruit. Flavour is slightly fruity, bit of spice and belg yeast. Not as sweet as a lot of triples. Slightly bitter finish, quite light bodied. Refreshing.

Lore (1576) - Budapest, HUNGARY - AUG 4, 2015
opalescent golden yellow colour, moderate sized dense, creamy off-white head; typical Belgian tripel aroma with overripe fruits, candy sugar, yeast, floral notes and minimal spices; taste is the same with moderate bitterness and spicy notes in the aftertaste; great tripel

Nische (1277) - Saltsjö-Boo, SWEDEN - JUL 11, 2015
ours slightly cloudy light orange with big foamy head and lots of lacing. Nose is grainy with some dough. Tastes of dough, cereal, grassy bitterness, maybe some light green apple and pears. Taste light sweet medium bitter. Medium body with lots of carbonation and a lasting bitterness to the finish. Was perfect paired with scallops, quite surprisingly.

Bottle @ the B&B, St. Bernardus. Semi-clear golden, with a medium white head. Yeasty doughy nose, some banana. Taste is on the sweet end, candy-like, medium bodied, bit oily.

Bottle at home. Dark blonde colour, pillowy white head. Taste is initially slightly sweet, but has a good balancing bitterness. Yeasty, slightly fruity and dry. Good mouthfeel and carbonation. Very pleasant beer.
