Skinnyviking (9325) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - FEB 13, 2007
Bottle. High creamy white and lasting head. Hazy orange body. Sweet fruity and floral aroma. Fruity honey flavor with notes of alcohol, not too dominant though, with a pleasant bitterness.

Aurelius (5215) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - FEB 9, 2007
The color of butterscotch LifeSavers. Nice bit bottle, clean label. Aroma is dominated by tart fruit, but theres a buttery, lightly diacetyl undertone and a bready yeastiness. Up front alcohol, tart, medium-lightly sweet, spicy cloves, sour fruit. Finishes out a bit clingy in the back palate, medium body, lingering green fruit/nut bitterness. Servicable.

UselessGdTaste (365) - Long Beach, California, USA - FEB 8, 2007
There wasnt that much aroma. The beer had a notably high carbonation. Does a good job of bridging the gap between dark and light beers.

LinusStick (3399) - Moon Twp, suburb of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 4, 2007
Not much experience with Abbey Tripels yet but this is the best Ive had so far. The pour was beautiful hazy gold with a little sediment. The head was a full 3 fingers and would not go home. The taste was a refreshing spicy blend of yeast, corriander and orange. Light finish with heavy carbonation. Nice.

Optigon (562) - Bloomington, Indiana, USA - JAN 23, 2007
Thick, frothy white head. Cloudy orange-yellow color. Alcoholic and spicy with pear and peach flavor qualities. Warm palate with a bit of a hoppy sting. Very excellent beer. Possibly 2004 bottle.

Slacks (615) - Bolton, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 21, 2007
330ml Bottle: A lighter colour than the double, almost pumpkin, but presenting a great foam head that did perhaps the greatest lacing Ive ever witnessed yet. The aroma is a blend of citrus peels, lemons, and oranges, as well as the usual suspects of coriander, cloves, and black pepper. Flavour is great, albeit significantly alcoholic. A great citrus taste, cloves, coriander, orange peel, black pepper, and a hop kick that was absent from the other Affligems. Definitely the best of the bunch.

detroiter (958) - Euphoria, Minnesota, USA - JAN 14, 2007
Poured into a tulip glass. Beneath 3+ inches of thick suds I see a very clear, effervescent, golden colored beer, with a steady stream of tiny champagne-like bubbles. After an eternity, the head dies back to about an inch, and leaves superb lacing throughout the glass. I detect a very sweet honey aroma with some grain or bread aroma as well. It sort of reminds me of those ’windmill’ cookies my grandmother gave me when I was a pup. Remember those? Excellent aroma throughout the glass. Sweet malty flavor, with prominent honey and/or bee pollen flavor and some hot alcohol. Some kind of dry spiciness (coriander I assume) is in there too. Full bodied and flavorful, more spice and alcohol in the finish. Thoroughly enjoyed from a 750 ml bottle with a cork date 4/03. EDIT: An hour or so goes by. I am near the bottom of the bottle. As expected, I am stirring up the yeast. The beer is now cloudy and darker in color - closer to a hazy peach color. I taste much less alcohol, more breadiness, and about the same amount of spice as previously.
