Hazy orange, frothy white head. Aroma of funky yeast, lemon, gum. Taste is more spiced yeast along with gum and bready malts. Pretty sweet and fruity, with Belgian funkiness. hopscotch (11159) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - JAN 9, 2010
Bottle… Hazy golden ale with a mid-sized, creamy, white head. Good retention. The aroma is sweet, meaty, brothy and spicy. Full-bodied with a slick mouthfeel and tingly carbonation. Sweet, beefy and bready flavor. Lengthy, bittersweet, meaty finish – hot too! kiefdog (1826) - Tampa, Florida, USA - JAN 3, 2010
Bottle from Kahn’s (Indianapolis). Pours a hazy, caramel golden with massive two finger white foamy head. Aroma is sweet, floral, yeast, candy sugar, bread, cider, and honey. Taste is about the same, caramel, toffee, candied apples. Medium body. Floral, sweet finish. PhillyBeer2112 (2861) - Oviedo, Florida, USA - JAN 2, 2010
Courtesy hopscotch. A very nice example of a tripel. Doughy nose with a light spice character and light phenol. Rounded, full and balanced flavor and palate with a good pillowy carbonation leading through to the finish. Still not a style I’m crazy about anymore, but one of the best examples of it I’ve had in quite awhile. GJF (1520) - Mount Vernon, Iowa, USA - DEC 9, 2009
It’s not the most groundbreaking tripel, but I found it quite delightful. A bready aroma and the flavor has hints of pear and candi sugar. A bit of banana and clove in a dry finish. It gets slightly cloying as it goes on, but otherwise an excellent beer.

cloudy orange gold pour with a quick small white head.
Aroma is fruity, apple and some tropical fruit and light bubblegummy tones. Some acidic tartness in the flavour. Apple and even light pineapple tones. Some honey and clove as well.
Alc is well blended though noticable after the finish, and it’s a very drinkable tripel. bluejacket74 (1993) - Reynoldsburg, Ohio, USA - NOV 6, 2009
750 ml bottle. Served in a snifter, the beer pours a golden/orange color with about an inch white head. Head retention and lacing are both good. Aroma is nice and fruity, it smells like tropical fruit, apples, bubblegum, candi sugar and some peppery spice. Taste is similar to the aroma, but with the addition of some pears and bananas. Mouthfeel/body is medium, it’s a bit creamy and slick, and it has moderate carbonation. Drinkability is good, it’s easy to drink and the alcohol isn’t too noticable in the taste. However, it does catch up to you after a while. Overall I thought this was a good brew, I’d pick it up again. esjaygee (3904) - Oak Creek, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 16, 2009
Hazy amber with a thin off-white head. Aroma of fruit, yeast, grains and clove. Taste of yeast, ripe fruit, honey and light alcohol. Mild tartness and funk set in as well. Decent, but not great. decaturstevo (6244) - decatur, Tennessee, USA - AUG 7, 2009
Gold pour with a creamy white head and lace. Light sweet malt with a hint of belgian yeast. Nice abv warmth with a hint of light brown sugar. Medium bodied with good carbonation. yespr (45709) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - JUL 26, 2009
