Embrouille (2843) - SWITZERLAND - JUN 29, 2007
Bottled 33cl. 8.5 ABV. A hazy orange beer with a a decent white head. Yeasty, spicy aroma of banana and caramel. Some hints of honey and pine needles. A rather enjoyable nose. Quite malty. The taste is very sweet, maybe too sweet with lots of banana esters. A rather smooth mouthfeel. Good bready elements. A poor finish follows. Decent overall. Not as bad as I thought it might be, but its nothing special. A bit soapy. Its quite enjoyable.. a nice nose, lots of fruity flavors but surely nothing outstanding or special. Somewhat like a mixture between a witbier and a malt liquor.

TBone (16834) - Pori, FINLAND - JUN 6, 2007
Bottled, alc. 8.5% (BB 07/2008)
Hazy orange color, decent off-white head. Orange, mango and pineapple in a bit sourish nose. Crisp, carbonated mouthfeel. Fruity (banana, pineapple), sweetish flavor with obvious alcholic presence. In the aftertaste alcohol and some hops. Not very complex tripel and quite alcoholic, but anyway drinkable dessert beer.

Dedollewaitor (15830) - Odense, DENMARK - MAY 29, 2007
unclear yellow with fast disappearing white head. Aroma has fruits (peach/orange), yeast & malts. Light metallic and easy noticeable alcohol. Sweetness with a spicy dry and warm alcohol touch. Medium body. Quite nice actually, and the aroma itself is wonderfull!!

GreatLibations (1854) - Last Supper, Arizona, USA - MAY 23, 2007
Brew pours a creamy pale yellow color w/ a full semi creamy froth. Head retention is good decent residual lacing.Aroma of fat Belgian caramel. Medium nectar w/ ample residual effers. The bubbles expand slowly on the palate similar to popcorn kernals popping slowly. This creates a unique texture. It even has a slight flavor of butter.Flavors are malt dominant in the usual tripel portflio of flavors to include some slight earthy, vegetal nuances. Theres a defined flavor of banana butter cream. Nice! I wouldnt classify this as sweet, more like fruity. Theres a very subtle bittering that sets in about midway through. The finish is easy yet generous w/ a mild bittering. Very delicious.

Bottled. 8.5% ABV. Cloudy yellow-orange colored with a big long-lasting white head. Aroma is yeasty, fruity (some bananas), a bit spicy, with some caramel. Flavor is sweet and spicy, with alcohol presence (a bit too much) in the finish. Medium-bodied.

I was disappointed with the Leffe triple compared to the previous one that I had tried, Karmeliet that was lovely. The Leffe triple has a bitter after taste leaving me with mouthful of letdown.On the positive side it pours well and has a nice head.
