bhensonb (14964) - Woodland, California, USA - MAR 3, 2013
Bottle from Malt & Vine. Pours dishwater gold with a transient white head. Aroma has mixed fruit esters. Full bodied. Flavor has pineapple, and maybe banana, ester. Some citrus. Its just a little earthy. Mildly spicy. It tastes very, very nice.

mansquito (6248) - Nueva York, New York, USA - MAR 2, 2013
Total Wine, Fairfax 12oz: Pours a golden body with a white head. Aroma is banana, coriander, sugar, and pale malts. Taste is somewhat sweet, with a slight hoppy tinge. All in all, this is a pretty run of the mill tripel. Good, and smooth, but kind of boring. Nice fizzy carbonation if that floats your boat. Alcohol coverage is perfect.

durhambeer (2500) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - MAR 2, 2013
Bottle. Hazy gold pour with a modest white head. Nose of peaches, curacao, citrus, Belgian yeast and hints of white pepper and coriander. Taste is a bit sweet all the way through, even in parts where a bit of tart dryness would work better. Solid, though.

gripweed57 (2121) - Hamilton Square, New Jersey, USA - MAR 1, 2013
12 ounce bottle. Hazy honey gold color topped by a brief white head. Faint yeasty citrus malt nose with hints of smoke and coriander. Complex bittersweet wheat malt flavor with earthy, yeasty notes. Mid taste is a mix of lemon peel and bitter hops with a touch of white peppercorns and cardamom. Finish is bitter and dryish with peppery notes.

ElGaucho (2400) - Minnetonka, Minnesota, USA - FEB 27, 2013
Draft at Butcher & the Boar. Nothing spectacular in the nose. Some citrus. Murky dark yellow. Snow White head. Sheet lace. Sweet with distinct Belgian qualities. Strong. Orange peel finish. Excellent.

RSRIZZO (1984) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - FEB 26, 2013
12oz bottle poured into a Tulip at 40. Color is a hazy golden yellow with mellow carbonation and a soft white head. Aroma is coriander, orange and Belgian yeast. It has a medium body with a creamy mouth feel. Flavor has a nice sour note as the citrus and spice meld with the yeast giving it an almost White taste. In the after taste the coriander and spice hang on with a mild bitterness. Overall this is a great brew, I think it leans more to the characteristics of a White and the 8.3% abv is very nice.

brokensail (16401) - Dublin, California, USA - FEB 25, 2013
Pale orange colored pour with a nice haze to it and a tall white head. Slight lemon zest aroma along with coriander, pepper, banana, and orange peel. Yeast and a somewhat nice dry malt profile, too. The flavor is heavy on the banana and citrus character. Somewhat dry, but a bit of malt and sugar sweetness. Coriander and pepper spiciness, light lemon, and a yeasty finish.

patrick767 (4047) - fort wayne, Indiana, USA - FEB 25, 2013
tap at Dash In on 2/2/13 - Pours a cloudy grapefruit color with an aroma of citrus and yeast spice. The flavor is sweet and citrus rich with yeast esters. Its medium bodied and bubbly with the sweetness carrying through into the finish along with some lingering yeast spice. Its a good brew though somewhat lacking in character.

onceblind (9162) - Denver, Colorado, USA - FEB 24, 2013
Hazy gold with a thin foamy white head. Estery nose with pale grains and peppercorn with a bready yeasty sweetness. Taste is also not as dry as I had hoped, but it has that quintessential Great Divide balance. Flavor is peppery and yeasty with a pale grain background, kinda slightly fruity. Lots of coriander too.
