mickut (276) - Espoo, FINLAND - FEB 20, 2010
Bottle. Pours yellow with white head. Taste starts acidic. Palate has a fizzy, medium body and a dry texture. Aromas have fruit, citrus, coriander, spices.

Ughsmash (7508) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 30, 2010
750mL bottle. Poured clear, bright golden with a tall, dense white head. The aroma picked up sour pineapple and hay with accents of earth and vanilla.. spice character was minimal, so this was a bit too far skewed to the fruit. The flavor opened with the expected tart pineapple, followed by a whole lot more sugars than expected (bready and pale malts, with a touch of honey).. white pepper and mild clove accented.. lots of residual bready and honey sugars on the finish with just a hint of the pineapple. Medium-bodied and very well carbonated on the palate.. lightly tart, but very sweet overall.. this seemed like a dumbed-down tripel, but it sure was drinkable.

LinusStick (3484) - Moon Twp, suburb of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 24, 2010
A delicious and extremely drinkable tripel. Aroma was classic Belgian. Heavy on the yeast, light fruits and spices. Pour was a nice bubbly medium pale gold with a 2 finger white head. Taste was nice and full and not overpowering like some tripels tend to be. Bold apple, pear and spices with a nice drying aftertaste. Nice carbonation and hides the alcohol very well. Great beer!

kevd193213 (992) - Hope Valley, Rhode Island, USA - JAN 13, 2010
750 mL bottle. Golden, slightly cloudy pour with a medium frothy pure white head. Aroma of bananas, yeast and faint floral hops. Full bodied taste of yeast and spices. Even, slight dry finish.

BillKismet (4090) - Seattle, Washington, USA - DEC 28, 2009
Orange body with swirls of tiny carbonation bubbles feeding a lush head. Zesty, lemon-kissed yeast aroma segues intoa smooth bodied Tripel apportioned iwth a clean yeast profile that is mildly complex and makes for an incredibly drinkable brew. Mild evergreen essence, spicy hops, and estery inklings. Enjoyable Belgian malt backdrop, well-balanced.and absent any off-flavors. Thoroughly enjoyable.

3.5
Rciesla (5499) - Exit 15W, New Jersey, USA - DEC 24, 2009
Bottle. Pours a golden body with a white head. Fruity esters, fruit warming with a pear and honey tone. Sweet pine and a modest warming. A decent ale, not a great tripel.

3.8
bhensonb (15498) - Woodland, California, USA - DEC 14, 2009
Pours a light orange gold with a decent foamy white head. Aromas of pale fruits and Belgian yeast/spice. Near full body with creamy carbonation. Flavor is quite fruity, spicey and not very sweet. It tends to develop a fresh fruitiness with time. Excellent.

3.5
tlind2 (1755) - Helsinki, FINLAND - NOV 26, 2009
330 ml bottle (marked as 8,7%). Golden color, frothy off-white head. Spicy aroma. Spicy flavor with lemon peel and hops and a dry finish. Medium-full body, high carbonation. Similar to their blonde beer, but better.

hopscotch (11175) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - NOV 16, 2009
Bottle … Clear, light golden ale with a small, dense, white head. Great retention. The bouquet offers banana, clove, coriander and gentle tinges of mint and smoke. Medium-bodied with a raspy mouthfeel and prickly carbonation. The flavor is sweet toffee, candy sugar and spicy clove up front; moderate to medium metallic bitterness follows. The finish provides lingering honey and toffee sweetness.

3.2
BeerBelcher (972) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - NOV 16, 2009
This wasn’t the big spice bomb that I usually associate with the tripel style, which made it unique and a touch novel. This beer is far maltier than any other tripels, and still has enough spice to keep things interesting. A little different than my previous experiences with tripels, but still good. Appearance was a golden color with a pretty minor amount of head for a tripel. Aroma was very faintly spicey - clove and all-spice. Flavor was a bit puckery and full of fruity overtones, with a sweet spice finish. Booze is evident in the flavor, but not unpleasant. Mouthfeel was dry and clean. Pretty good, and recommendable. I had this on-tap at the BXL Belgian cafe in midtown Manhattan.
