Batch #50. Vanilla aroma with a hint of citrus. Hoppy, somewhat creamy flavor, just a bit flowery. Hoppy aftertaste, somewhat alcoholic. Nice and easy going tripel. jbrus (4988) - Delft, NETHERLANDS - OCT 24, 2004
The aroma is quite promising but it’s actually just a nice tripel. A bit on the sweet side maybe. Not complex, not exceptional. skortila (5985) - Baarn, NETHERLANDS - OCT 24, 2004
(Dutch ratebeermeeting) Balanced aroma of fruit, grain and spices. Hazy, yellow coloured with a lasting, white head. Taste is sweet with fruit and spices. More bitterness in the finish. Sticky. Decent balance. Decent brew. Typical triple. jerohen (2352) - Bussum, NETHERLANDS - OCT 24, 2004
Dutch Ratebeer Meeting. Cloudy yellow coloured, white head. IMHO nothing special going on in aroma and flavour, just an average tripel. And i’m not that big of a fan of the style.

Slightly hazy yellow color, big white head. Spicy and grainy aroma, some wheat. Quite sweet taste, bit sticky palate. Nothing special, but therefore quite good. BeerandBlues2 (13810) - Escondido, California, USA - OCT 19, 2004
Batch No. 37...Cloudy orange-gold with a huge frothy white head. Yeast and malt aromas with a fruit and spicy wheat nose. Sweet yeasty flavor with citrus, butter, and honey notes. Warm and creamy palate, refreshing. eleusis (70) - Denver, Colorado, USA - OCT 18, 2004
First try, batch 53 750ml bottle. A little too harsh alcohol bite, not well hidden at all. Complex, sweet flavor, honey-hoppish. Would try again. SkyinBrian (430) - Saint Louis, Missouri, USA - OCT 11, 2004
does the united states make better triples than belgium? perhaps...this one was great. nice golden color. tasted the traditional banana and clove. this masked the 9% extrordinarily well. NobleSquirrel (3439) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - OCT 10, 2004
This was Tripel number 2 of three for last night. Definitely the best looking of the three with a nice yellow/orangey color, cloudy with tasty yeasties. In the nose, there was a lot of sweetness, pear, apples, a light hop aroma, and the smell of champagne. After the silky smoothness crossed my tongue, I was hit with the sweetness, a taste similar to honey. As it warmed, more banana and cloves were presiding. I had to double check the alcohol on this, as I didn’t think it could possibly be as high as 9%. I was quite pleased in this selection, though not my favorite.
