Wheatyweiss (29) - Wisconsin, USA - AUG 13, 2010
Poured from a bottle into a Leffe chalice. Pours a murky medium straw with a decent head that recedes and laces minimally. Aroma is light grain, candy sugar and light citrus and tropical fruits. Yeast is fruity and slightly dusty or funky, but not prominent. Flavor is pale malt sweetness with a bit of a pineapple rider. Candy sugar takes the front and is interrupted by phenolic alcohol. Finishes boozey and sweet. Mouthfeel is medium with harsh bubbled carbonation. Finishes sticky on the lips. Carbonation is quite harsh and active. Overall a decent tripel, but not something I would go out of my way for. Reviewed on: 05-28-2010

Pours deep gold into a tulip Bright white head with good retention recedes leaving slower sheets. Tropical fruit, candi and yeast aromas. Sweetly spiced tropical fruits upfront turning dry and cloyingly sweet in the hot, lasting candi finish.

Countbeer (6470) - Best of E-Town mit 2 Brauhausen, NETHERLANDS - JUL 1, 2010
Tap: Small white lacing. Smell is a mix of fruit (apple), malts, spices and some hints of hops. Clear golden yellow color. Taste is fruity (orange, apple), malty, sweet spices and hops. Bit bitter aftertaste.

cheap (5705) - Beaver Valley, Beaver County, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 29, 2010
Had this at the Pittsburgh Great European Beer Festival at the Sharp Edge Beer Emporium 6/2010. Hazy pale lager eye. Typical strong clean belgy aromas. Rather strong initial flavors yet well behaved and refined. Hides alky content well I guess for an 8%. Decent anmount of CO2. Rubbery at times, same on finish.

pilgrimoutlaw (888) - Wayne, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 27, 2010
On tap at Bieaard in Amsterdam. Pours golden blond with foamy white head. Typical belgian tripel yeast flavor with aromas of cloves and coriander. A bit spicy with moderate bitterness and sweetness. Moderately carbonated. Not bad.

ClubGonzo (5647) - Bergen, NORWAY - MAY 22, 2010
Pours a clear orange body with a medium, dense white head. Smell is sweet malts and flowery hops. Taste is light malts, molasses, floral hops and hints of perfume. Smooth palate and a very drinkable tripel. Perhaps a bit too sweet sometimes, could easily have used a bit more aromatics to balance it. Very pleasant.

DruncanVeasey (8225) - NUNEATON, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - MAY 12, 2010
Bottle off my Dad. Dont you just love it when youre slugging a beer back you assume youve rated 1000s back, only to find it is, in fact, A WINNER. Pours soft and creamy; filmy orange with a tight pure-white drum of head. Sweet jammy hop, wine gums, pine, creamy malt and gin-like botanicals aroma. Surprisingly restrained on the palate; alcohol incidental to the mellow powdery spice (ground ginger, coriander, juniper), juicy Belgian hop, lemonade, honey. OK, theres a fair bit of alcohol glow (and flavour) there, but it detracts nothing from a juicy, discreetly hopped, well-spiced, well-balanced tripel-nothing like as heavy-handed and industrial as feared. Just so hugely drinkable and dangerous. Reminds me of the enigmatically spiced Belgian stuff that first got me hooked, and eventually led me to RB. Cant get enough of that gruut.

0.33 l bottle from Alko. Golden to orange color. Sweet raisiny, herbal and orangey aroma with notes of apricot. Sweet, raisiny, figgy and herbal flavor. Sharp carbonation. OK tripel, slightly too sharp.

Aroma is moderate malty, toasted, moderate hoppy, moderate to heavy yeasty, overripped fresh fruit, spicy, light coriander. Flavor is moderate to heavy sweet and bitter with a long duration, peppery.
