tripelthreat (190) - Soquel, California, USA - JAN 22, 2008
11.2 oz. bottle into generic goblet. Cloudy copper with a medium head that quickly fades. Tart cider and vinous notes in the nose. Initially sweet and then sharp on the tongue. Plenty of apple and pear flavors and sweetness that is countered by just enough of a sour note and bitterness to keep things interesting. The mouthfeel softens later but remains tart and dry, unlike other tripels where the sweetness builds and takes over. A great tripel.

stef7321 (15) - Williamsburg, Virginia, USA - JAN 21, 2008
UPDATED: JAN 27, 2008 Very pronounced yeast and tangy nose. Pours a light amber with a bit of opacity, little sediment. This beer has a very pronounced flavor that follows the aroma, with a generous taste of yeast followed by sour apple, green grapes, and hints of citrus. A very clean finish that lingers in the mouth. A unique taste that presents a pleasant alternative to some of the other abbey/trappist beers, but not my absolute favourite.

AgentSteve (1647) - SF Bay Area, California, USA - JAN 20, 2008
Pours a funky yellow with a hint of green (?) in it. Tight bubbled head disappates quickly. Nose is tart and yeasty. Flavor is much more balanced, with a sweetness showing through, followed by a citrus tartness and a malt finish.

Pretty much like the others say: a very nice tripel. Very well balanced!
Too much to add, too little to say :)

juiceisloose (1319) - Windermere, Florida, USA - JAN 13, 2008
Pours a deep amber color with a thick bubbly white head that slowly faded away. It smelled of sweet citrus fruit, some malts, floral and spices. The flavor was much the same with citrus fruit and spices coming through mostly. There was a touch of candy sugar that left a hint of sweetness, but not as sweet as I was hoping for. Medium bodied with just the right amount of carbonation that finished with a little tartness. A very solid tripel.

radagast83 (7515) - Alexandria, Virginia, USA - JAN 13, 2008
Bottle. Pours a slightly cloudy amber color. White frothy head. Aroma is slightly sweet, with notes of fruits and a touch of spice. Relatively light, at least for 8 percent.

Bertrand (7) - Grand Rapids / Chicago, Michigan, USA - JAN 12, 2008 does not count
corked bottle...poured a nice pillowy head...good lacing...subtle litchi, citrus flavor...sharp, carbonated palate...similar to Gouden Carolus Tripel, with less coriander

SuperDave (1932) - Beautiful Sunny Mesa, Arizona, USA - JAN 11, 2008
Pours a pale amber, with a medium frothy head. Aroma of fruit and spices, with some alcohol. Taste is good, but not great. Sour notes and alcohol were too lasting. Still a very solid beer.

750ml bottle. pale orange color with big soft pillow of a head that lasts forever. very nicely carbonated. lighter feel that some tripels, but very nice. it reminds me of another belgian tripel, but i cant figure out which one. guess ill have to drink a bunch of them to remember.
