Coppery gold colour, highly carbonated with a frothy white head that dissipates quickly. Wheat aroma. Bitter, highly hopped taste with plenty of wheat. Not a terrible beer at all. gam (4009) - brisbane, AUSTRALIA - AUG 15, 2010

bottle. pours a golden orange with a thick off-white head. aroma is of stone fruits and banana. taste is of a sweet caramel malt with citrus and stone fruit, followed by a dry, bitter finish Mattburns (114) - USA - JUL 11, 2010
Fresh and lively. Citrus and malt in flavour. Hints of a hoppy bitterness. Alcohol is there in the flavour as well, but who could blame coming in at 9.5. hawthorne00 (4035) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - APR 10, 2010
UPDATED: OCT 4, 2011 Just hazy gold with a thick off-white coat. Smells of nectarines and a little of spices (vanilla, cloves, coriander seeds) and bread dough. Mild fruit taste with fairly prominent alcohol. Moderately carbonated mouthfeel for the style. Finishes slightly dry.

As a local attempt at aping the style this is _entirely_ successful. And of course that’s very impressive. But I’m not sure I see the point: Tripels travel well; this bottle was more expensive than a Tripel Karmeliet; and there’s no particular local angle being worked here as far as I can tell.
Bottle. Cloudy gold with a with a lasting white head. Cleanish and stone fruity, but not that sweet. Some spices in a bitter and fairly dry finish. That rather grumpy last paragraph last time is a bit silly: this is a good tripel and a good effort.
fizzy golden, no head retention. first smell of this didn’t seem promising in my nostrils, dominated by spicy phenols, I prefer my tripels more dominated by fruity esters. the taste was really good though, mainly fruity and perfect balance of sweet flavours with a dry palate. going back to the aroma it ’fruitens up’ while its warming up. alcohol is certainly there but it is not head ache inducing. quite tasty! Cheer to nate2g for the bottle mkel07 (6212) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - MAR 20, 2010
330ml bottle. Very lively in the glass with a volcanic crisp and crackling white head. Misty golden colour. Peach and nectarine aromas dominate with a spice backdrop lingering, sweet and spicy. Strong alcohol comes through and is quite smooth considering the high alcohol content. Flavours of spiced fruit. Alcohol content doctates that this is one to be sipped. jonno (2852) - JAPAN - FEB 5, 2010
Colour me surprised. Nice fruity nose.In the mouth it is quite viscous with a fair bit of fruit prevalent and a tangy quality to it in the finish. Reasonably authentic. If you are a tripel fan i would seek this out. nate2g (1548) - Boomtown!, AUSTRALIA - DEC 26, 2009
Bottle. Pours hazy golden with a frothy white head that slowly collapsed, Some light sediment evident in the glass. Nose of spice, orange, stonefruit, vanilla and banana...quite an appealing mix. The flavour is pleasant and mirrors the aroma nicely. A nice lingering fruitiness in the finish. Softly carbonated. Hides the abv extremely well. It’s well attenuated and a refreshingly tasty tripel...well done LBC. bluebetty (1021) - AUSTRALIA - DEC 19, 2009
Bottle. Pours a nice golden orange. Slightly hazy. Dense offwhite head. Some lacing as the head falls away. Yeast aromas show through initially with bread and banana most prominent. Some malt sweetness and a little caramel also. Great falvours with some malt sweetness, honey, caramel and citrusy hops. Nice dryish finish. Mouthfeel seems to be pretty good. One of the better australian made tripels I have tried. Good beer
