polomagnifico (1202) - Saginaw, Michigan, USA - AUG 4, 2012
Bottle. Aroma has notes of honey, caramel Malts, Belgium yeasts, and bread. Medium amber hue with a small head that mostly diminished and left no lace. Flavor is heavy sweet and medium bitterness. Palate is full bodied and oily soft. Overall a good tripel.

jcnielsen (3302) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - AUG 2, 2012
Bottle. Pours a golden orange color with white head. Honey, malty, bready, Strong honey flavor with some malty, floral, alcohol also. Normally, I probably wouldnt go for a tripel with a big honey component. But this is a good tripel in its own right, and the honey complements it nicely.

thegreenrooster (4146) - St.louis, Missouri, USA - JUL 28, 2012
Pour is a dark yellow with a small white head. Aroma is some fruity, yeasty esters with a nice sweet honey. Flavor is is again a nice yeasty fruit with sweet honey to follow. Leaves a nice earthyness on the tounge. This beer is not a one trick pony with just the honey. Its a decent triple with a nice honey backbone.

Bomber from Liz. Pours dark ruddy copper with a transient beige head. Aroma has ginger, yeast/spice, and a touch of sweet. Med body. Flavor has honey, but its slightly earthy, Belgian yeasty, and definitely ginger. I think Id like more earth and less honey, but its a good drink.

jmohno (1554) - Iowa, USA - MAY 28, 2012
Cloudish orangish reddish brownish. Even has a yellow hue around the edges.Thin to no head with bits of foamy spit.Some light lacing.Mild carbonation. Aroma is nice with floral,orange,spice and a bigger sweet honey aroma. Taste is very nice with a good honey taste floral orange some spice blend with a honey sweet nectar the ginger is hard to detect but gives a general spice which lasts long through some of the bittering or finish. There is a nice tang with this on the sides of the cheeks keeping the sublte but noticable sweetness balanced with the spice. There is a good carmel note with the sweetness as well. This is suprisingly very complex and good. For a good honey quality in a beer this is up there.

mmmbeer (1399) - Austin, Texas, USA - MAY 24, 2012
22 oz. bottle, Vintage 2011, served in tumbler- poured a transparent brownish amber color, lively medium carbonation, white ring around the glass for a head. Aroma of honey, late summer fruit, and note of dirt. Hits the mouth with a medium body, malt is weakened but its made up for it by a ginger/coriander tone, middle has darkened fruit, finish is made of more of the same with some small hints of pepper. Very nicely done- makes for a good companion while I enter in ratings and corrections.

jmagnus87 (2912) - Rockford, Illinois, USA - APR 17, 2012
22oz bomber poured into my Chimay Trappist glass. 2011 Vintage. Pours a clear dark amber with minimal head. Aroma is mostly honey with a slight nose of sour green apple. Taste is light sweet. Alcohol, honey and some mixed berries. Light bodied with a somewhat thin texture. Lively carbonation and not much of a finish. Overall, I like this beer. Nothing I would seek out but Im glad Im drinking this one.
