aubreya (676) - Chapel Hill, North Carolina, USA - OCT 8, 2007
The color was murky golden with light orange hues. The head had a medium thickness. It was white and frothy. The aroma was a very apparant citrisy lemon note. There were light hops as well. The flavor was light lemon and orange citrisy hops. It reminded me of a belgian white.

emacgee (4659) - Chapel Hill, North Carolina, USA - OCT 8, 2007
Swiped from the WBF. Pours a fairly thin golden with a medium offwhite head. Would have liked more haze or subsistence in the pour. Some lacing though. Aroma is sweet, fruit, spice, mild must, some alcohol, Curacao, . The flavor is crisp, slightly dry, Curacao, zesty lemongrass, mild spice, some grassy hops and a mild funk. Tastes fairly "tripelish" but deviates in a few areas, mainly alcohol and some facets of the flavor. Not too bad though.

KimJohansen (10451) - Frederiksberg C, Dnemark, DENMARK - OCT 8, 2007
Clear golden ale with large head. Sweet malty and citrus dominated aroma. Flavor with notes of wheat and malt. Medium body and good balance in this nice simple abbey beer.

mansquito (5976) - Nueva York, New York, USA - OCT 7, 2007
Pours thick white head with an orange body. Somewhat fruity smell to it. Fruity and easy tase. Even though it has less alcohol and based off of that estimation I thought it wasnt a tripel, it still does keep the tripel taste to a large extent. Very light hop presence. Sort of sweetish. I have had much better in this style. The dubbel they make is a whole lot better in my opinion.

DerBiermeister (586) - Birmingham, Alabama, USA - OCT 3, 2007
UPDATED: OCT 15, 2007 The aroma is quite pleasant on this one. The appearance is golden and see-through. The flavour is quite good. The palate is good, and overall this is a good ale, but for a Belgian ale disappointing. It was worth the $12 for a six pack to try it, but I would probably not get it again. It is available in Florida, but not in the backwards-lawed Alabama.

Arayaga2 (2175) - portland, Oregon, USA - SEP 29, 2007
UPDATED: NOV 24, 2009 Blonde and bubbly with almost no head. Aroma is apples and spice, but rather mild. Taste is same, with light spice and appley esters in the finish. $3/11.2oz

On tap in Paris. Golden body with decent head. little spice & taste.some banana. very boring. almost like the american brewers weak attempt at a tripel.

wunderbier (1434) - Tampere, FINLAND - SEP 28, 2007
Medium-sized, frothy, white head slowly relaxes atop a clear, light golden hued body. Aroma is full of bananas (almost a baby food quality), pepper, sweet apples, pineapples, honey and peaches. With some warmth, a slight grainy tinge appears. The aroma feels a bit underpowered for a Tripel, but then, the alcohol is far from the normal mark. The flavour is moderately sweet as would be expected, with a light apple-like acidity at the beginning. The finish fades out fairly quickly, sweet and short, lacking the spiciness or brush of alcohol necessary to make it exciting. Medium bodied with lightly tingling carbonation and slick texture. Anyway, this is more of a session blonde than a Tripel in my opinion. I dont care about that score-wise, though. Never exciting, but easily drinkable. 50cl can, Duvel tulip, bbe 06/08.
