LordCorkscrew (1774) - Ronco Scrivia (GE), ITALY - SEP 14, 2007
UPDATED: SEP 18, 2007 Bottiglia da 33cl comprata alla Coop di Brescia; colore biondo carico, scarsa schiuma comunque persistente. L’aroma è a posto e anche abbastanza genuino, se non fosse per una nota d’alcool che si avverte fin da subito; il sapore è dominato dall’alcool, che sovrasta le caratteristiche dello stile. Non buona._______________ENGLISH TEXT HERE____________33cl bottle bought at Coop in Brescia; color is deep blond, with little but persistent white head. Aroma is nice and even genuine, if it wasn’t for a note of alcohol you can notice from the first time; flavor instead is dominated by alcohol, and this overwhelms the style characteristics and makes it a very disappointing brew (in the Affligem tradition...).

Cobra (1100) - - SEP 12, 2007
750 ml. brown, Belgian bottle. Corked & caged. No freshness date seen. This sample was a little stale to be honest. Loud pop released the cork. Poured out a hazy Orange/yellowish color, with a big white head. Aromas are of Belgian funk, citrus fruits, orange peel. Flavors are of citrus peel, earthy hops, barnyard malts. Medium mouthfeel, medium body. Not the freshest Tripel I ever had, that much is certain.

davhix (38) - Colorado, USA - SEP 9, 2007
soft head over brilliant orange color in my orval glass. dry finish, but a pleasant one, not one that makes you want to find some water. i love this one. the smell/taste reminds me of the beers i enjoyed in waregem with a local friend last fall.

RSRIZZO (2034) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - SEP 9, 2007
Aroma is a light grain like scent with a faint yeast back tone. Color is a golden with a very light haze. Carbonation is good with a nice tight head. Taste is light, crisp and sweet. Starting with a medium body it goes down smooth with a crisp feel. Finish comes in sweet with a malt flavor that is back by fruity yeast tones and a mild hop spice that ends with an easy bitterness. This is better then there Dubbel, it has a cleaner feel and the true flavor of a Belgian Ale.

EHSRanders (2102) - Tjele, DENMARK - SEP 8, 2007

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.

JoeMcPhee (10129) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 25, 2007
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 (8426) - 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.
