DSG (12532) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - JUL 28, 2012
Bottle. As "St. Sebastiaan Grand Cru". Clear deep golden with a nice, big, stable white head. Aroma has some fruitiness, alcohol, some floral and grassy hops and light grainy hints. Rather sweet alcoholic flavor with some malt, honey notes, some fruitiness, yeasty notes and a drier finish, slightly spicy, with light bitterness and some more alcohol. Medium-bodied. So-so.

djd07 (12438) - Houston, Texas, USA - JUN 6, 2011
Sampled at Texas Beerfest. Pours a cloudy orange with small frothy head. The aroma is wheat, citrus, and clove. Medium mouthfeel with yeast and clove. Alcohol present but not overpowering a decent blond.

thewolf (12270) - Kolding, DENMARK - MAR 15, 2008
Bottle, bought @ Poetzh, Flensborg.
Pours clear, pale golden. Lot of small bubbles surching towards a big, frothy white head. Good duration. Aroma is sweet, yeasty, coriander, oranges, biscuits and apples. Quite creamy mouthfeel. Flavour is a little underwhelming, but still nice. Quite sweet, with biscuity malts dominating between some exotic fruits - pineappel, apples and oranges. A slightly dry finish.

crossovert (11796) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAR 13, 2011
16fl oz white ceramic flip-top botte. It pours extremely light for a Tripel, more like a belgian strong pale, it is a crystal clear/very pale gold with a huge, billowing white head that recedes with a ton of fine lacing. It smells delightful, with big yeast notes, honey, and a massive fruitiness. The flavor isnt as potent as the smell, btu it is great. It is subtle and fruity, with clean malts and a grassy hop note. The finish is sweet and caramally, but never cloying. The alcohol is well in check. The mouthfeel is prickly but not overwhelming. The drinkability is nearly tops.

Sammy (11487) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 21, 2005
sweet spice. Bottle work of art. Surprisingly refreshing summer drink. Yeast and cream but doesnt seem a triple. Better than expected and popular with mates. Fruit, honey, suitably noticeably carbonated. Medium-light mouthfeel, lace and soap bubbles on top of golden yellow.

daknole (10919) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - DEC 2, 2009
Hazy goldish color. White head. Yeast, overripe fruit, old wood aroma. Flavor is yeast, oxidized apples, honey, rotten wood. Hmmm, nope.

hopscotch (10761) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - MAR 22, 2008
Bottle... Cloudy yellow ale with a small, fizzy, white head. Lots of white protein floaties tooling about the brew. Yeasty, sweet-honey aroma with mild spice phenols. Medium-bodied with a watery mouthfeel and reserved carbonation. Sweet, spicy flavor with lots of pale grains, clove and/or coriander. Yuk! Finishes watery and lightly bitter.
