11/5/2014. On tap at the brewery. Light orange with a white head. Aromas are spicy and fruity. Light sweetness, grassy notes with citrus and spices. Good balance. Well done... NikkTwist (3191) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 28, 2014
Bottle at Fado. Clear orangish-yellow pour with a lasting sodt off-white head. Grassy caramel aroma. Nice medium-light malt notes. Sweetness feels more from honey than sugar. Not nearly as full or complex as most Trippels but a pleasant easy drinking attempt. bth122 (1547) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 21, 2014
Bottle. Poured a orange gold color with small head. Aroma of clove, spice, orange, belgium yeast. Spicy clove and belgium yeast flavors in taste. Slight fruit notes. Medium heavy body. Maybe too much clove or spice to this. Decent. GenDV138 (7201) - Falls Church, Virginia, USA - AUG 18, 2014

Dark gold with lasting foamy lacy beige head; aroma is lightly malty sweet and Belgian yeasty; Flava is rich- a blend Belgian yeast sugar malt and hops; feels hick chewy foamy luscious; finishes dry yet malty tangy alexsdad06 (10262) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAY 30, 2014
Bottle revisited since I didn’t rate this in the past. Pours a hazy orange amber color with a medium sized off white head. The aroma and flavor have sweet malts, ample fruity character, pear, some citrus, spices, with some alcohol heat. Decent enough. Darkmagus82 (2302) - - MAY 18, 2014
From BA review on 1-29-12 -
Had on tap served in tulip shaped glass
Appearance – Pours a haze orange/golden color with a nice white head. The head fades slowly giving away to the very slightest bit of lacing.
Smell – Yeasty and sweet are the first detected; yeast cake and sweet fruits of orange and a bit of tropical mango and some banana are present. Then a bit of bready maltiness works its way through the aroma, with the whole aroma rounded out by a light alcohol/boozy aroma.
Taste – The taste is very similar to the smell only in a different order. As opposed to the aroma, the first taste detected was a bit more breadiness with some biscuit flavor. The yeasty flavor, present throughout, stays while the bread flavor fades giving way to a sweeter taste profile of mango, orange and banana. Like the smell however the whole taste experience finishes with a nice mild alcohol flavor rounding it all out.
Mouthfeel – A nice creamy body with a good level of carbonation. A good slow drinking/sipping beer; perfectly matched to its alcohol content.
Overall – While not the best Belgian triple I have ever had, very enjoyable none the less. Nothing stands out, but nothing brings it down; overall moderately balanced.

Not overly impressed with this one, head was on the weak side, light aroma and taste. I compare all tripels to Karmaliet, so it’s in some tough company. Decent but not outstanding. bbbeer (811) - Massachusetts, USA - JAN 19, 2014
Golden yellow-orange with small white head. Aroma yeast, citrus, malt. Medium full body, lightly carbonated, minimal alcohol. Flavor yeasty bread, grass, faint orange/lemon. Not sure this is the best example of a tripel but as a beer works pretty well anyway.
