Cletus (6355) - Connecticut, USA - JUL 20, 2009
Pours gold with a nice white head. Smells of residual sugar, some spicy hints and peppery. Tastes perfumy and dry with a decent spicy finish.

mesperon (205) - Hillsdale, New Jersey, USA - JUL 13, 2009
Sweet aroma with mellow hops. Sweet on the tip of the tongue, develops into a nice hoppy bitterness. Mush more tripel than IPA. Hops are not dominant. Very good tripel.

JaBier (8027) - Capital City, Ohio, USA - JUL 12, 2009
22oz bottle. Cloudy orange color with a medium off-white head. Citrus hop aroma with some malt and a touch of Belgian yeast. Citrus hop flavor, some spicy yeast and a lingering bitter finish. More IPA character than most beers like this. Good stuff.

Ramenen (466) - San Salvador, EL SALVADOR - JUL 11, 2009
Bought it at Whole Foods in Sacramento. Finally, after a long wait I was able to drink Le Freak. Perfect marriage of two great styles. The sweet of the Abbey Trippel with the bitterness and fullness of IIPA.

baraciisch (3267) - California, USA - JUL 9, 2009
Cloudy dark yellow-golden in color with white foamy head.... Citrusy sweet aroma.... Flavor is sweet citrus and yeastly like a trippel initially, with a little more bitterness on the finish than you’d expect from a Belgian.... Citrus hops and yeast linger on the palate... Pretty good Belgian IPA...

cmonster (1000) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JUL 7, 2009
Bomber served in a snifter. Hazy golden honey hue with a large frothy off-white head. Belgian nose with some hoppy and yeasty elements. Interesting... caramel and bubblegum also. Solidmouthfeel. Bubblegum on the attack as well. Medium body and some fizzy carbonation. Creamy, oily, and coats your tongue. There’s a lot going on here. Long, bitter finish. Really good stuff.

TheAlum (7164) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - JUL 3, 2009
Pours a glowing hazy gold amber, creamy big beige head that laces well, stays fairly big. Aromas throw some nice fruity belgian yeast, touch of spice, citrusy hops on the nose of lemon. Different than expected. Initial throws some fruity and belgian yeastiness, a bit estery and throwing down the nice lemony citrus hop bitterness further into the body and fuller/stronger than expected. Finish is dry and bitter, a bit of underlying fruit and belgian yeast. This one is an interesting hybrid, a little strong on the warming feel, but a very good beer overall. Cheers.
