erikaraeb (51) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAY 25, 2017
Starts with the well-known sweetness of a Belgian tripel, but then finishes with a sudden bold, sour woodiness or resin. Mild yeasty, sour aroma. Very fine, scant head and rather carbonated for a tripel. Definitely does not seem like 11% ABV, goes down way too nicely. Really interesting tripel take overall.

pictoman (1067) - British Columbia, CANADA - APR 14, 2017
Poured from 750mL bottle (bottled on 11/02/16). Clear yellow with full bubbly white head. Yeast and coriander with mild wood, finishes with a smooth bourbon flavour, alcohol mostly hidden. Very smooth, well balanced. Not a traditional abbey tripel by any stretch, but still quite good.

Westy1130 (74) - New York, USA - APR 12, 2017
picked up a bottle at Costco for $17.99 (bit expensive for something aged for only 8 weeks/ not disappointed though). Poured a hazy gold with less than a finger of head. Citrus and tropical fruit aroma. Strong bourbon and vanilla flavors with a malty/hop finish. Very well balanced Tripel.

ScottWallace82 (97) - Winchester, Virginia, USA - FEB 17, 2017
Bottle into a tulip glass. Pours a hazy straw yellow with a quick-dissipating white head. Lemon, spice, and Belgian yeast on the nose. Mouthfeel is medium-bodied with a slight harshness from the carbonation. Good tripel flavors week a slight woodiness. Not bad, but very little bourbon flavor.

Klassisch krutriger Tripelmann mit zartem Strong Ale Verlangen. Alles richtig gemacht, allerdings auch kein outstanding Ausreier. 0,1/Tap. TAPHOUSE Mnchen. ca. 3 Euronen.

rayaron (1739) - Kfar Saba, ISRAEL - JAN 14, 2017
Bottle sample at a tasting at zvsns place. Thanks Alon. Golden with white head and lots of particles. The aroma has lots of wood, yeasts, vanilla and flowers. Sweet flavor with notes of yeasts, wood, bourbon, flowers, vanilla, alcoholic, a bit lactic, bitterish. Medium to full-bodied. Great.
