jsmerig (1590) - Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 28, 2012
Pours a hazy pale yellow. Aroma of currant and pepper. Taste is complex. A slight tinge of tartness up front is quickly replaced by a smooth sweetness that transforms into vanilla notes that then turns peppery. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

NORSAND (107) - Lillestrøm, NORWAY - JUL 17, 2017
1.5 year old (bottled Nov 2015) Nose: Buttery sweetness, maize, bourbon, vanilla. Taste: Slightly sweet, medium to full bodied, grain and bourbon dominated, in a positive way. Quite nice and very drinkable. The 11% ABV is scaringly well hidden, it’s really impossible to notice while drinking it.

laiti (8476) - Tampere, FINLAND - JUL 17, 2017
Draught @ Meisterstück, Münich. Aroma has sweet bourbon tones, vanilla and mild alcohol. Flavour has strong bourbon tones, vanilla, chocolate(!) and non-disturbing alcohol. Also some fruits. Tripel is very well hidden here, I can only taste some tripel-like maltiness in the finish. Intensive stuff.

olio (10281) - Tampere, FINLAND - JUL 17, 2017
Tap @ das Meisterstück, Munich.
Pours clear golden color with a huge white head. Alcohol comes through the thick layer of froth, grainy, some toffee and yeasty spice notes, nice bourbon-vanilla notes too. Surprisingly pleasant toffee-infused soft flavor at first, malty and grainy with yeast tones, alcohol eventually burns a bit. Okay.

tightslice (1313) - Redwood City, California, USA - JUN 30, 2017
Bottle share with family (Dave and Jeff). Aroma is dry fruit, oak, peaches, bourbon syrup, Belgian candy sugar. Taste is juicy and dry apricots with some spicy Belgian bits all mellowed and punched up by the Bourbon. This is a knockout concoction.

daiverson (1) - Anderson, South Carolina, USA - JUN 8, 2017 does not count
Aroma: lightly leather, earthy and roasty. Appearance: golden amber Taste: Very light sweetness and slightly salty Body: medium body, creamy, average carbonation Im fairly new to specialty beer, but this one satisfies my preferences in alcoholic beverages across the board. I enjoy Syrah and Sauvignon Blanc wines; full-bodied bourbons; and stout and Belgian influenced beer. It’s like a perfectly blended mixture of all of these and is my current favorite.

tapefuzz (530) - Massachusetts, USA - MAY 31, 2017
Draught. Pours a nearly clear yellow-gold with a small white head. Aroma is vanilla, oak, raisins, yeast, spice, light bourbon, some coconut, toffee, and earth. Taste is coconut, vanilla, some bourbon, some oak, a hint of honey, and Trappist-like yeast. Fairly sweet. Lightly bitter. Light-medium body. Soft carbonation. Slick, smooth mouthfeel.

erikaraeb (225) - 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.

thorongil2 (3076) - , Ontario, CANADA - MAY 2, 2017
(Tap) hazy, bright yellow colour with a small white head; brief aroma of honey, then slight sourness and woodiness; thick palate; balanced flavour with a long, light bitter sweet finish

3.7
pictoman (1129) - 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.

Tide (3897) - Helsinki, FINLAND - APR 12, 2017
Draught at Beer Hall SF. Hazy yellow color, white head. Bitter taste with citrus, yeast, a bit of hops, toffee, earthy notes, ripe fruits, oak and grass. Bitter finish with citrus, yeast, earthy notes, ripe fruits, oak, spices and grass. Exquisite tripel.
