Pours very light with thick head. Spicy, yeasty aroma. Flavor is dry and a bit dusty but still a round body. Decent.

Sampled from 750 mL bottle, poured into trappist glass. Unfortunately, the bottle had been shaken up in transport and foamed over for several minutes. I rated it as best I could despite this accident, but the aroma was weakened as a result. The aroma that was discernable was fruity (maybe banana) and had some citrus hops, perhaps some caramel malt. The appearance was a cloudy, dark gold-honey color with a big, foamy white head. The head was long lasting and light. Its taste was very sweet and fruity, maybe some yeast. Mouthfeel was fizzy but smooth and wet, but still light; average carbonation. A good beer, but tainted by the accidental shake-up.

Pours rich gold. Nice head retention. Spicy, herbal aroma. Very rich and creamy on the palate. Sweet malt and dry yeast mix nicely with each other. Slightly fruity but balanced nicely by some dry yeast and spice flavors. i like this Tripel.

5000 (6862) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - MAY 5, 2007
Bottle: Hazy straw, actually moreso dirty, moderate fizzy off-white head, dies quickly, spotty lacing.   Combination sweet bready grassiness and a soft floral aspect... very soft.   Fairly malty for a Tripel.   Semi-sweet, bready, floral (but not as much as other examples).   Very clean.   Moderate to full body and mouthfeel.   Seems like a little honeysuckle and/or nectar like flavors on the finish.   Alcohol is well hidden.   Not as bright or floral, but equally as good as others.

harrisoni (18577) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - MAY 3, 2007
33cl bottle from Noel Cuveliers. Gold thin white head. Belgian abbey tripel aroma, that belgian yeast, stone fruit and citrus aroma. Maybe more complex than most and certainly a very good aroma. It is an above average tripel. smooth, competent, well put together, certainly nothing off balance. Quite pleasing, fruit really is very nice, finish is a little metallic and really lets the rest of the beer down. Decent without hitting the heights.

Thure (152) - DENMARK - MAY 2, 2007
Yellow in colour and a bit hazy with a Thick white head. Hint of alcohol, a very subdued hint of metal, some fruityness and a bit of spice to the nose. Maltiness, prune-ish flavor and a bit of hoppy bitterness in the aftertaste. Medium to full body with a substancial amount of carbonation.

PeterA (342) - EL SALVADOR - MAY 2, 2007
Nice apple, caramel aroma. Cloudy golden brown color with short-lived, thick white head. The flavor was candy sweet, orange and apple were there. The mouthfeel was a little bit sticky with a slightly bitter aftertaste. A little bit strong for a session beer, but I might be able to pull it off.
