Draft at ginger man. Wit like Belgian style (a little surprised to see it is a tripel). Wheat, orange peel, honey, a little pith. Nice gold pour. Good, and grows on you too. tastybeer (1853) - Indiana, USA - JUL 19, 2012
Bottle. Pour is gold with no head/lace. Aroma of grass, belgo yeast, bread, citrus. Taste is sweet, malty, grassy, citrus, fruity esters, bubblegum, light booze. Palate is slick, low carbonation, sweet finish. Not dry enough; needs work. ration (2211) - Tampere, FINLAND - JUL 17, 2012

Draft at railroad. Pours hazy yellow with no head to speak of. Aroma has yeast, orange, orange peel, and some lemon. Taste is dry and has the citrus hit on the tongue. Good palate. Nothing crazy but enjoyable. Tmoney99 (14365) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUL 16, 2012
Bottle. Poured hazy yellow color with an average frothy white head that lasted with excellent lacing. Moderate complex herbal citrus and yeast aroma. Medium body with a dry smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium citrus sweet flavor with a medium sweet finish of moderate duration. This is a good beer.

On draft at Euclid Hall in Denver. Pours a hazy yellow with a white head. Nose is sweet malt, green apple, yeast, pepper, and red apple. Flavor is sweet malt, yeast, and pepper. Flavor lingers with sweet malt and pepper. Medium in body and a bit dry in the finish and very nice overall. dbarnold (1127) - Bethesda, Maryland, USA - JUL 15, 2012
Pours super cloudy yellow with white head. Nose of light fruit, dry, pretty hoppy for a tripel. Same continues in to the palate but it’s lighter than most tripels...lower abv than most as well. Finish is dry and slightly acidic. I greatly enjoyed this, lots of flavour and easy to drink. Nuffield (4167) - Roseville, Minnesota, USA - JUL 15, 2012
My neighbor and I drank this and the Great Divine Smoked Baltic Porter, on a lovely warm night in July (in Minnesota). Avery’s was rating 3.49, while Great Divide was at 3.55, so essentially the same. Both of us thought that the Avery was the superior of the two. Clear until we got to the bottom third of the bottle, the yellow liquid (with a loosely formed head) had multiple flavor notes--it had the yeast, but also had the coriander and fruit, and it had a decent body, though it wouldn’t have suffered from a bit more twang. Overall, a very decent Tripel. deyholla (11481) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - JUL 14, 2012
On tap at B&L. Pours a hazy yellow gold with a white head that last throughout the beer. Aroma has lots of sweet grains with a strong spice, light fruit and floral notes. Flavor is full of sweet grains and floral notes with a good amount of spice underlying. thirdeye11 (6160) - Dallas, Texas, USA - JUL 12, 2012
(22oz bottle) cloudy light gold body, lasting film of offwhite bubbles. Nose of candi sugar, golden raisins, Belgian yeast, sweet bread, light toffee. Taste is sweet but dry, a bit papery, grassy, light candi sugar, seltzer water (a bit salty), well carbonated and dry. Just misses the mark a bit with some odd/off flavors.
