Smells of the county fair: bubble gum and hay. Intriguing copper color; lacks a proper head. Upon first long pull, all preconceptions are blown out the window. Citrus and caramel explosion with a perfect carbonation complement. Smooth finish leaves you pondering when your next taste of this craft will be. A must try for all new Trippel explorers! jtw (1165) - farmington, Michigan, USA - MAR 23, 2005
bottle from tannertavernboys. "flat" aroma if that makes sense, unlike a flat body. earthy and yeasty and musty. tingly caramel alcohol flavor but the tingle is not from carbonation; it seems to come from a citrusy spice. good beer, good tripel, but just typical for a belgian style brew. imstein (5) - Alabama, USA - MAR 21, 2005 does not count
DRANK IT STRAIGHT FROM THE BOTTLE.
THOROUGHLY ENJOYED IT. GETS BETTER AS IT WARMS. NICE CARAMEL AFTERTASTE AND VERY SMOOTH GOING DOWN. CAN’T WAIT TO GET MORE.

UPDATED: OCT 12, 2005 Honestly, I don’t completely understand why this beer has such a good rating. The best thing that I can say about it is that it is fairly true to style, but, in my opinion, it’s not that good. mustang3 (254) - Whitby, CANADA - MAR 15, 2005
Hazy bright yellow in colour with a pillowy white head. Aroma is vaguely fruity and spicy. Taste is incredible. I can dtect mango and lychee. Very nice.

Grapevine Market- Austin, Tx - 12oz bottle. Pours a slighlty murky, medium golden with a faint, but sticky white head, good subtle bubble action. Aroma is not overly apparant, pick up a faint fish odor, some cotton candy and fresh lake water. Flavor has a little bit of bubble gum, some candied sugar and a bit of alcohol. Turns slighlty cloying near the end. Mouthfeel is sticky and thick, which is nice. Overall, decent, but not one for the ages. goldtwins (4319) - Nesconset, New York, USA - MAR 1, 2005
Poured a dark yellow. Aroma was yeasty with some notes of leather. Flavors of some fruit, sugar, and hop spice with a semi dry finish. Light to medium bodied. Padron4KM (810) - Chandler, Arizona, USA - FEB 27, 2005
12 oz bottle, bb 12 aug 05.Doppelganger (1388) - Dry County, Arkansas, USA - FEB 25, 2005
Pours a golden orangy yellow, with a thick, creamy, off-white head.
Aroma is yeasty, fruity, over-ripe bananas, lemon
flavor is lemony and sweet.
clean lemony finish.
Pours golden straw-yellow with just a little skim of white head. Aromas of musky yeastiness, sweet grassy-mellon hops, bubblegum, clove and lemon zest. Lots of interesting things going on, with no one aroma hogging the attention. Fresh and spring-clean. Flavors of nice soft lemony maltiness. Lingering tangy yeast. Surprisingly light on the palate. Hides the 8% ABV very well. Darkover (1542) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - FEB 24, 2005
Golden color with a huge white head. Aroma of lemon and yeast. Flavor of lemon, yeast, spices and some hops.
