Bottle, bought @ Plan B, Cph.Boutip (6325) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 7, 2008
Pours deep orange with a pretty big, frothy, off-white head. Aroma has oranges, light oxidation and chewy maltiness. Medium carbonation. Pleasantly vinious - perhaps even a bit too much? - caramel, oranges, light oxidation and rather dry.
Bottle: Poured a hazy dirty beige color ale with a big foamy head with good retention and some lacing. Aroma of Belgian malt with a spicy yeast. Taste is comprised of a spicy yeast with maybe some pepper and light coriander as well as a nice malt backbone and a slightly dry hoppy finish. Body is quite full with some great carbonation. I thought this was slightly too dry and some light traces of alcohol were slightly disappointing. skortila (5798) - Baarn, NETHERLANDS - DEC 30, 2007
Aroma has yeast, some coriander and citrus. Hazy, yellow coloured with a lasting, medium, white head. Taste is sweet, has some malt, lots of yeast, slightly spicy with citrus. Medium bodied. Not very exciting, but well brewed. Perhaps a little too sweet.weaselkenievil (1608) - Cheshire, ENGLAND - DEC 11, 2007

Aroma is quite spicy and yeasty. Citrus in it. Hazy, golden-yellow coloured with a lasting white head. Taste is typical tripel style; yeast, spices, citrus. Sweet , some malt. Quite good.
Had at Quinns (GREAT pub in London)while watching the mighty reds with our chopper. Fogot to put a description down, just the rates. All I can tell you beer ponces is that a barman poured it from a bottle into a glass for me. And I enjoyed it. MesandSim (7117) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 24, 2007

Very cloudy blonde with lots of big floaters and a thick and creamy white head. Nice Belgian yeast aroma with delicate hops and spice. Flavour is more of the same. Exactly what you would expect from a Belgian tripel but has a really pleasant note of caramel and a slight hint of malt in the finish. Prickly carbonation in the mouth as expected. Usually I would find everything about this type of beer boring as hell but this is well made and enjoyably drinkable. The caramel and malt makes it. Good stuff.

Hazy honey gold hue, with a yeasty, fruity nose, with a subtle black pepper spiciness, a faint floral hop mintiness, with a mild herbal accent, and a citrus aroma follows through on a medium-bodied palate with a yeasty, fruity, spritzy character, with a note of wet hey, with some honeyed malts, with a zesty citrusy fruitiness, leading towards a fruity, flowery hop bitterness finish.

My Bottom Line:Storm (2684) - Amager, DENMARK - SEP 2, 2007
An engaging bouquet develops grains of paradise, flower petals, orange pith and coriander seeds atop a honeyed maltiness and minty hop bitterness. The finish might not be as intricate and delicate as the aroma, but this remains a pleasant example of Belgian breweriana.
Further Personal Perceptions:
-A sheet of foam protects the hazy golden.
-Carbonation is expansive and the mouthfeel intrinsically Belgian.
-Citrusy fruitiness adds drinkability.
-Coriander contributes some milk character.
Bottle. Hazy golden colour with a huge white head. Light aroma of malt,alcohol and little spices. Flavour of malt, fruitness very smooth and nice.
