hughie (3996) - Bedford, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - SEP 4, 2007
Slightly hazy gold with a lot of fizz. Leathery yeast aroma. Luscious sweet peachy fruity taste with plenty of dryness and alcohol to follow. Preferred this to the Westmalle Tripel I had earlier this week.

750 ml corked and caged. Pale amber colour with great clarity and very fine carbonation. Dusty malt aroma, soft and earthy with some nice crackery dryness. Softly spicy with light clove and earthiness as well as a light musky aroma. Light apricot/apple in the middle with a nice crisp flinty bitterness on the back. Nicely balanced flavour with the light spiciness playing very nicely against the dryness of the finish. Lean Belgian malts with a pepper/bubble gum finish. Very tasty tripel.

DruncanVeasey (8260) - Nr NUNEATON, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - AUG 21, 2007
UPDATED: AUG 23, 2007 Misty gold with a white collar of froth. Nose of estery banana, hop grassiness, apple peel. Drily hoppy in the manner of Westmalle Tripel, but with mellowing wheat, maybe coriander. Headily fruity and impressively bitter. Biscuity malt afters. Above-average, drily hoppy, fruity Tripel.

brianbuntz (49) - Santa Monica, California, USA - AUG 19, 2007
Poured a nice, mostly clear, amber with a big fluffy head. Aroma is subtle, fruity. Feels nice on the tongue. Flavor of orange peel, yeast. Overall, a pretty good tripel.

3.2
krysztofar (344) - belleville, Illinois, USA - AUG 19, 2007
750ml bottle. golden orange color is quite hazy. the head has a tight meringue like appearance that is quite beautiful. nose is spicy, earthy, estery, and a little funky. full well rounded mouth feel. a little apricot and peachy fruit. sweet but not too sweet middle and some dry breadiness accompany. strong alcohol provides a long stinging finish with moderate hop bitterness.

goozen (4119) - Leiden, NETHERLANDS - AUG 18, 2007
Bottle 0,33ltr: Hazy orange looking triple from De Smedt(Heieneken). This is fine example of the style if try learning drinking Triples.

Jmichael (640) - Asheville, North Carolina, USA - AUG 3, 2007
poured into small tulip. tasting at bruisin ales. pours a clear dark gold with fizzy head, light low aroma, yeasty on the front with fruity finish to aftertaste. light and easy more bannana with the aftertaste become appearant.

oakbluff (454) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - AUG 1, 2007
Pours out a tangerine cloudy colour. Not much head retention for belgian which surprised me. Some lacing on side of glass. Smell is typical sweet belgian. Taste is sweet and fruity, not too spicy. Fairly middle of the road from a flavour profile. Highly drinkable for the ABV. I think this could be a good gateway beer for folks that think Leffe is the end all and be all of belgian brews. Would drink again, but wouldn’t go out of my way. Purchased as part of a gift pack that came with a decent glass.
