ante (3374) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - MAR 12, 2008
Bottled at Monks Caf, Stockholm. Pours out in a hazy deep golden colour with pale orange hints, topped with a rich dense white foam. Sweet and a bit sugary aroma of orange-marmalade, mild yeast and apricots with hints of white pepper and lemon-peels. Full-bodied with a sweet fruity flavour of over-riped oranges, apricots, nectarines and sugar with mild spicy, herbal and yeasty undertones. The mouthfeel is surprisingly clean and thankfully lacks chewy cloyingly sweetness as the the flavour promised. Canned oranges and apricots in the long fruity aftertaste with touches of almonds, banana and gentle herbal yeast. Well-brewed and certainly not bad but a bit too sweet for me.

Lubiere (13412) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 29, 2008
Hazy golden ale with a super rich creamy white head. Aroma is very fruity ans sweet, with notes of vanilla, cardamom, cream and light alcohol. In mouth, an interestingly sweet fruity cream, notes of bubblegum, light coriander and belly warning alcohol in final. A bit too sweet for me, but very engaging, this one. Bieropholie import.

BartC (727) - Lichtaart, BELGIUM - FEB 5, 2008
Gold blond beer with a nice white head. Spicy and breadlike aroma and taste. Nicely balanced. Cinnamon? Very nice. It doesnt always have to be a bitter beer.

Glouglouburp (6103) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 23, 2008
In short: Basic sweet and fruity tripel with citrusy hops and dry finish. Ok.
How: Bottle 330ml, probably 3 months old or so.
The look: Partly cloudy golden body with a medium off-white head leaving good lacings
In long: Fruity flavours dry oranges, bananas and citrus juice blend in with the sweetness that reminds me of a crusty sugar pie. Fluffy chewy body, rather yeasty. Finish is surprisingly dry despite the citrusy hops taste being more dominant than the dry grassiness. A bit spicy with the usual coriander but only a little. Competent Tripel but there are plenty of far better options to chose from in this classic genre. Conventional. If all Apostles were so unadventurous they would have talked Jesus into settling down and taking a job at the market. There would have been no Bible and therefore no wars.

SHIG (4951) - Wasilla, Alaska, USA - OCT 21, 2007
Bottle: Poured a copper color with an off white color head. The aroma is sweet and almost veggy like to my nose, possible fruit in there as well. Nice sweet malt with that suttle fruit and spice, finish was just hoppy enough to bring real character to this triple!

rederic (3324) - montral, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 13, 2007
Cloudy honey gold hue, with a thick white head, yeasty, sweet pale malt nose, with a subtle spicy coriander accent, a faint fruity orange note, with a mild honeyed aroma, follows through on a medium-bodied palate with a yeasty, spritzy, fruity character, with a peachy, orange peel fruitiness, with a coriander spicy note, with some sweet honeyed pale malt accents, with a warmth mouthfeel, leading towards a fruity, warm, dry hop finish.

MartinT (9653) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 12, 2007
My Bottom Line:
Banana esters and vanilla ice cream flow through a grassy and citrusy hop cologne in this lively and creamy Tripel.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A rocky, mountainous head of foam laces all around the cloudy beige golden.
-Carbonation is fluffy and active, as one would expect from this Belgian style.
-The mouthfeel is reasonably full, yet the overall effect is quite drinkable.
-Alcohol is not a factor in the flavor profile.
-The wheel has not been reinvented here, its just been replicated flawlessly. This was a mighty tasty surprise!

Bottled on 07/12/2006.
