DownsouthGav (601) - Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 12, 2007
Bottle @ Beer Circus, Croydon. Big head. Sulphur, egg and yeast nose. Golden colour. Taste is thick musct-like, alcohol and sweetness. Alcohol comes through the nose. I enjoyed this one.

mtoast (336) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 11, 2007
On tap, from old notes. Bright yellow with stark white foam. Big phenol and alcohol aromas, very sweet flavor with more alcohol burn. Too syrupy for me.

Hazmatt (363) - Virginia, USA - OCT 6, 2007
Bottle. Golden color, big head. Sweet and yeasty aroma. Malty candi like flavors. Alcohol evident but not hot. A bit dry. Med body, effervescent. I would call this tripel. A nice strong ale.

joe19612 (3067) - camberley, Surrey, ENGLAND - OCT 5, 2007
Cloudy golden color with a medium size white head. Nice lacing throughout. Yeasty, citrusy aroma. Somewhat sweet initially, with a dry, hoppy, alcoholic finish.

3.7
decaturstevo (6343) - decatur, Tennessee, USA - SEP 20, 2007
An aroma of citrusy, yeasty, bannanas. A cloudy yellow pour with a white head that disapates quickly. A spicy hotness in the flavor with some warmth from the abv as well. Carbonation is agressive but not overly so. A decent beer.

3.8
BuckeyeSammy (617) - Palo Alto, Ohio, USA - SEP 17, 2007
Light aroma of banana and marmalade, sweet. You can taste the alcohol in the finish. Deep brown color. Flavor is a little sweet, wish it was a little more carbinated.

davidpl (435) - Santiago, CHILE - AUG 28, 2007
Appearance: golden color, transparent. Very live bubbles and homogeneous. Great head, white color, dense and very persistent. Not too much rocky. Aroma: sweet malty, intensive floral-hoppy; citric-fruity like grapefruits and pineapple; sweet-fruity like tangerines. Soft touches like of eucalyptus; and others more intensive like honey and peel orange. Not complex, some liquory. Flavor: hoppy mainly and herbal-medicinal; sweet pale malty, citric fruits like grapefruits and pineapple. Warming and liquory, I remember the chardonnay wine. Softly spicy with clove and coriander tones. Dry and persistent finish; peel yellow grapefruit, menthol and eucalyptus aftertaste. Palate: light to medium body, semi-viscous texture. Medium carbonation. Dry and warming beer, relatively simple, nice hoppy. Not is an extraordinary belgian beer, but advisable.

3.7
pnista (1007) - Bloomington, Indiana, USA - AUG 25, 2007
Hazy yellow gold with a rocky dense white head, though diminishing observably. Yeast esters, light and sweet. A bit of apple, some Belgian funk, some subtle vanilla and cinnamon(?). This seems to defy trippel, by a bit. Creamy subdued think and full, Again, a bit more substantial for the style than I’m used to. Very sweet, with some alcohol, over fruity esters. Dry spicey, slightly alcoholic finish. A bit of spice, pepper(y hops?) and cinnamon, perhaps even some of that Belgian funk.

3.3
screwball (1099) - Motala, SWEDEN - AUG 24, 2007
Hazy golden. White foamy head. Aroma: Banana,yeast and marmalade. Flavor: Sweet malt and peppry.

andrewboss (137) - New York, USA - AUG 21, 2007
Bottle... pours a rich golden color white a fluffy white head. Strong aroma that makes you actually want to drink it. A unique flavor with a hint of fruitiness, but just the right amount of hops that reminds you that you are drinking a beer. Good experience.
