My Bottom Line:probstblueribbon (3791) - Nepean, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 20, 2007
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, it’s just been replicated flawlessly. This was a mighty tasty surprise!

Bottle: Poured a deep golden color ale with a huge pure white head with good retention and some lacing. Aroma consists of Belgian malt with some light spices which may include white pepper. Taste is a well balance mix between some semi-sweet Belgian malt, spices and light yeasty finish. Body is quite full with some excellent carbonation and no alcohol was detected. Nothing earth shattering to be found here but very good in any case. thebeertourist (5189) - Oslo, NORWAY - APR 22, 2007
Bottle. Nice golden colourwith a big white foam on top leaving lacing. Sediments. Rye bread aroma with spices and caramel in exciting harmony. Flavours are mostly sweet with quite a bit of bready character. Spicy rye notes. Slightly light-bodied for the style, but warming alcohol. An extraordinary tripel in my opinion.

33 cl bottle, bottled in Feb 05. Hazy light amber. Sweet, caramel aroma with yeast and fruit (hint of overripe pears).

Hazy orange, big cloudy off-white head. Orange peels, mango in the nose. Semi-sweet, fruity. Orange marmelade in the flavor with some (alcoholic?) bitterish notes. Average beer, but some way enjoyable. bager (2120) - Copenhagen N, DENMARK - MAR 27, 2006
Bottle. Hazy golden colour with a small white head. Sweet and a bit malty and nutty.
