PorterPounder (7768) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - MAY 17, 2012
Tallahassee, Fl - on tap at Proof. Light golden pour, frothy white head. Aroma has some bubble gum accents, a hint of cloves. Flavor reminds me of gumdrops, some candied sugar notes, a hint of licorice, brief citrus flourish. Smooth mouthfeel. In my humble opinion SA should stay away from the Belgian styles - none of these have knocked my socks off.

falco242 (395) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - MAY 14, 2012
Not any head on the tap pour and the appearance is lacking with just a light golden orange color. Fruity aroma that hits the bready, wheaty triple style.

ElGaucho (2400) - Minnetonka, Minnesota, USA - MAY 14, 2012
Draft at stub & herbs. Strong aroma with distinct sweet Belgian qualities. Clear dark gold body with virtually no head. Really good flavor. Nails the tripel style. Alcohol is somewhat hidden. Impressive.

Very fruity aroma. Orange color pretty clear. Sweet light taste with a semi bitter finish. Drinkable and delicious.

Beerman6686 (6595) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 7, 2012
This poured a semi hazy darker yellow color with a white head. Aroma was banana, yeast, some spices, and alcohol. Flavor was abundantly sweet with candi sugar, light spice notes, and lots of alcohol. I think this would have been a lot nice without the strong booze aspect.

bunget (930) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 6, 2012
750ml bottle. Cloudy orange body with a huge white head, great retention. Aroma is yeasty sweet, fresh at the same time thanks to a good dose of grassy hops, coriander, some sourness. Taste is badly masked alcohol upfront, yeast, banana, herbal tones, some fruits, maybe peach, coriander, nutmeg, pretty sweet. A very decent brew.

efecher (70) - Long Valley, New Jersey, USA - MAY 2, 2012
Oak aged, fruity, very drinkable. A great example of a good tripel. Definitely taste a slight hint of tropical fruit - mango?

tgncc (3126) - Bellmore, New York, USA - APR 29, 2012
Impromptu beer tasting on my birthday. The aroma is fruity, honey, slight pepper. The appearance is a clear ornage, white head. The flavor is sweet, honet, fruit, banana, other light fruits, and a very mild pepper bite. Medium in body. The finish is pepper, spicy. Not bad. A bit sweet for a triple. The slight - and not overwhelming - pepper from the yeast works well here.

Chapel (468) - Levittown, New York, USA - APR 27, 2012
Very good triple. Pour is golden with a thick head. Strongly of pine and cloves with a bit of yeast and some alcohol.

Great offering from Sam Adams. White fluffy head with yellow gold color. Banana, pear, and other spices in the taste.
