fonefan (49369) - VestJylland, DENMARK - AUG 3, 2006
Bottle. Nice blond body with lasting white foamy/creamy head. Fresh and well balanced hoppy aroma with honeyish, flowery, and yeasty notes. Taste hides the alcohol very well. It carries sweet and honeyish hints. Ends with a smooth bittersweet finish. Good Tripel. Very good together with chees

yespr (45464) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - DEC 14, 2007
33 cL bottle. Pours hazy yellow with a collapsing white head. Aroma is mild caramel malt and yeasty spice notes. Flavour starts sweet before a classic belgian yeast flavour appears. This holds cinnamon, cloves, orange and a mild note of banana as well, complex yet elegant. Ends with a lingering flavour of the same. Nice and mellowly spiced.

Ungstrup (37625) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - SEP 24, 2004
A hazy dark amber beer with a huge beige head. The aroma is very sweet with notes of yeast and oranges. The flavor is extremely sweet - too sweet for my liking, and also with a bite of alcohol on the tongue, that warms the palate and throat. But the flavor also contains notes of yeast, oranges, and prunes - but not enough to hide the alcohol. The end is dry, smooth, and a little sticky.

joergen (28148) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - NOV 26, 2004
Hazy yellow with a big white head. Acidic aroma with notes of fruit, spices and yeast. Sweet flavor with notes of bananas, spices and yeast.

oh6gdx (26488) - Vasa, FINLAND - JUL 19, 2005
Bottled. Hazy dark yellow colour with big foamy head, lacing. Fruity, yeasty and a bit wheaty aroma with weak alcoholic notes. Strong yeasty fruity flavour with hints of honey and weak alcohol becoming more present in finish and aftertaste. Sweet aftertaste too, and stocky palate.

2.8
omhper (25138) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - MAR 29, 2007
Bottled (8.5%) at Man inthe Moon, Stockholm. Cloudy deep golden, rich firm head. Aroma of banana and caramel. Loads of sweet banana liqueur and an evident almondy yeast character. dense in the mouth. Very sweet,but without being cloying. More bold than subtle with some late grassy bitterness and a wealth of warming alcohol.

Papsoe (25063) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - MAY 3, 2005
UPDATED: JAN 8, 2006 (Bottle 33 cl) Orangey, hazy beer. Sweetish, full-bodied with lots of yeast in the nose. Fruity, spicy and fresh and not that bitter. A very nice Tripel. 020593

Warning! Early amateur rating! String dry taste. Slightly fruity and with a moderate amount of carbonation. Nice!

Leighton (21258) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 26, 2012
Bottle with Lyoli in Brussels. Pours cloudy gold with a large, frothy white head. Lots of sugar dough, yeast and suggestions of alcohol in the nose. Big sweet flavour, lots of sugary, basic doughy white bread, some candi sugar, prevalent alcohol. Full bodied with average carbonation. Fairly hot and boozy on the finish and mostly one-dimensional with still more sugary dough, Belgian yeast, candi sugar. There are also notes of baked beans floating around here, and ripe orange citrus. But yeah, at times the alcohol is like a punch in the face.
