Bottle: Poured a hazy floaty filled yellow to gold color with a creamy thick white head. The aroma was orange peels, hops and some spicy yeast. The taste was fruit with those citrus orange tones. Finish was hoppy and consistent with that spice aroma. pintbypint (3672) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - SEP 12, 2007
330ml brown bottle. Deep gold colour. White head is well formed and long lasting. Left nice sheets of lacing in my Affligem glass. Aroma of orange zest and yeast, spicy and a little bready. Flavour is of citrusy slight herbal hop, yeast, and some spicy alcohol notes with malt fruitiness (peach and pear?). Moderate bitterness, dry finish. Fine carbonation, medium body. elmatador00 (519) - Raleigh, North Carolina, USA - SEP 10, 2007
BAM, explosion of corkage. Poured a unfiltered copper color with a frothy lasting white head. Has a good amount of yeast. Carbonation is balanced well. Has typical belgium tripel qualities. Finishes clean. JohnnyJ (5570) - San Diego, California, USA - SEP 7, 2007
06 bottle. Pour is a hazy gold with with yeast floaters. Nice creamy white head. Aroma of lemon, grain, bread, spice, and fruit. Flavors of lemon zest, banana, bread, spice, and some sweet fruity notes. A bit of alcohol comes through. Another tasty brew from dupont. jewedekind (450) - Middleton, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 2, 2007
330 ml bottle. Pours a perfect head - creamy and frothy at the same time. Nice spice in the nose. Sharp alcohol on the lips, lights a fire all the way to the adenoids. Yeasty bread, whole grains and butter. Creamy but dry. Tilted to the warm side, but sustains on the tongue. Masterful.

750 corked and caged from Pop’s in Northampton, MA... The bottle says Moinette, Unfiltered, Bottle Conditioned, and Belgian Ale. This beer looked and smelled like the De Ranke Guldenburg. The first sip unleashed a familiar sour funk on top of a strong gold belgian ale. The flavs were ripe apple and pears with a lambicesque sour finish. The hops are subtle in this sweet strong beer. This is the best beer that I have had in a while. (I have been drinking miller high life all summer:) malrubius (2927) - Springfield, Vermont, USA - AUG 26, 2007
750 ml bottle in Westmalle glass. Pours hazy pale yellow orange with dense, rocky off-white head and full lace. Mild aroma of grapefruity hops, vanilla, bread dough. Complex flavors of grapefruityness, honey, vanilla tobacco, mild spiciness, with a clean hop bitter finish. Surprisingly light body. Not sure why this is a tripel instead of strong blonde. I wish I could adequately describe how fucking good this is. Might be a new favorite. MrRain (472) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - AUG 20, 2007
750ml bottle poured in a Trappist glass. this hazy unfiltered beer looks like grapefruit juice with a thick head that settles quickly. I smell green apples and tart cherries along with a faint hint of balsa wood. The first taste isn’t really attention grabbing. It has mostly a citrus-like lemon flavor with noticeable carbonation. Upon further sampling I detect an almost German wheat flavor of banana and clove that is well-hidden in the alcohol taste. This isn’t a bad beer but I’ve had much better Abbey Tripels before. This one is easy to drink but doesn’t have the character I associate with the style. It a little bit of a boring beer. Beershine (5224) - VANCOUVER, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 20, 2007
Good reliable tripel with character. Above-average for its style. In fact, Moinette Blonde has session-drinking potential and goes down well. Have tried both in bottle and tap.
