VitaminR (540) - Colorado, USA - MAY 16, 2008
Sour fruit nose, some honey clove spice present. Nectary pearl orange-gold color, huge frothy head with great lacing. Caramel/vanilla/clove spicy syrupy sweetness, great bitter to slight tartness that creates perfect balance. Tight effervescent carbonation, finish is long and has a nice little burn of alcohol at the very end. A excellent Tripel.

Ober (2812) - Bommelerwaard, NETHERLANDS - MAY 13, 2008
Alittle hazy golden colored beer, with a nice foamed white head. It has an aroma of fruits, spices like coriander and malts. Its complex. The taste is complex as well. There are fruits, citrus, spicey, with a little bitter in the back. It sparkles in your mouth. A very nice triple.

gonzo46and2 (108) - Tampa, Florida, USA - MAY 7, 2008
Well balanced tripel. This ranks up there with my favorite tripel Chimay Cinq Cents. Pours a cloudy pale amber and delivers powerful abv kick. Bitterness is balanced well.

trevor211 (1679) - Seattle, Washington, USA - MAY 6, 2008
Like a more complex, more refined version of La Fin du Monde. Pours a light, hazy cider color with a huge, creamy head. Aroma of light, creamy caramel, apples and spices. Flavor is a great blend of sweet fruits and a mild bitterness, with notes of apples and just a bit of the bite of black pepper. It has a great depth, and is extremely drinkable.

MrChopin (4304) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - MAY 1, 2008
Nose is caramel and slightly citrus with a little pepper in the background. Cloudy-golden color and loads of sediment. Lots of lacing from puffy white head. Tastes include pepper and citrus hops, mixed with caramel sweetness and hints of sour apples/apple cider. More pronounced malts with some wheat as it warms. A nice tripel, but little pricey.

Cobra (1100) - - MAY 1, 2008
750 ml brown, Belgian bottle. Corked and caged. No freshness date, but a cryptic mark on the cork, like a lower case "A". Loud pop released the cork. Poured out a deep orange / yellow color, with a thick white head. Carbonation is persistant. Aromas are of pineapples, black pepper, funky yeast. Flavors are of peppery yeast, tropical fruits, earthy hops, lots of malts. Thick mouthfeel, but normal body. Tasty beer overall. Alcohol is well hidden, but sneaks up on you.
