Bottle shared by my sadly-now-moved-away Rodney. Light golden pour, thin white head. Sweet and citrusy, minor yeast notes. Too sweet. haugeberg (72) - - SEP 10, 2012
Poured from bomber into glass. It looks more like a pilsner than a tripel and the coriander / citrus flavors seem to overpower the flavor. Not bad, just not exactly what I was expecting.

This was an enjoyable triple. It’s weakest aspect was its appearance followed by its nose. The appearance just wasn’t as brilliantly golden as it should have been. The nose was full of sweet malt, but there was a tinge of off-aromas with not enough pungent barnyard/cheesy aromas. It was pretty tasty, though. kassner (1722) - Wexford, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 30, 2012
Got this Bottle on Bald Head Island, NC Market. What a nice surprise at a great price. had a best buy date that made no sense so I took a chance. Quite nice, just a tad thin and highly carbonated but plenty of honey and citrus, foamy head.. Thorpe429 (5122) - , Illinois, USA - AUG 29, 2012
Thanks to TNT for the bottle. Nose has just a touch of fruit and very light yeasty spice. Flavor has a touch of grain. Very dry. Aftertaste is quite metallic.

Bomber. Pours a clear golden color with lots of white head. Aroma of grassy hops and citrus. Taste banana and bread yeast with a bit of citrus. Alcohol taste throughout. Dry slightly spicy finish. TaktikMTL (8014) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 22, 2012

Bottle: Poured a hazy dirty yellow color ale with a large foamy head with good retention and some good lacing. Aroma of spicy yeast notes with light fruity ester and sweet malt. Taste is also a mix between some sweet malt and some fruity ester with a spicy yeast finish. The re was some attenuation which is something that cannot be said for every American Triple. Body was about average with good carbonation and no apparent alcohol. Very solid interpretation of the style. ben4321 (6839) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - AUG 13, 2012

JCB (3999) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - AUG 12, 2012
Aroma: The nose is fairly heavy spiced, along with clove, Belgian yeast, grass, and some banana
Appearance: Pours a yellow-gold color with a small, fizzy white head that leaves some scattered lace
Flavor: Tastes mid-sweet (malts, yeast), mid-heavy spice, some fruit, and a later grassy bitterness
Palate: The body is light-medium, a heavy fizzy/tingly carbonation, and a somewhat aggressive, dry finish
This is one of those beers that leaves you wishing it was better. It isn’t absolutely terrible or anything, but unfortunately, it misses on a few too many levels. From the nose to the taste, and on through the palate, there was a lot that didn’t quite work here. Mediocre at best...
Bomber from Total Wine, Durham. Nice deep golden pour with quite the fizz going on. Nose is, yes, estery but with a demi-sec promise. Lively mouthfeel, and the taste is initially a bit fruity, with some golden raisins and apples, later a strap of yeast, and a welcome dry finish. Not bad.
