bager (2120) - Copenhagen N, DENMARK - FEB 8, 2007
Bottled (2003). Hazy orange in colour with a rather small white head. Way too sparkly. Sweet and fruity with a bit too thin mouthfeel. Somewhat alcoholic.

Muggus69 (2229) - Yarram, Vic, AUSTRALIA - FEB 6, 2007
Served from the bottle straight from the cellar. Wheat malt on the nose, citrus fruits, plenty of spice and a touch of alcohol. Hazy pale gold body with minimal head for this style. Good touch from the word go, a wheaty cereal-like flavour, with undertones of citrus fruit, apple and banana, seems a bit subdued though. Finish is reasonably dry, and a bit abrupt. Needs more body I think.

jgentgesdo (693) - Tulsa, Oklahoma, USA - FEB 4, 2007
Pours pale, translucent yellow with large, champagne like white head, beautiful bubbles chasing up the rounded glass. Nose is interesting, like a melomel (spiced mead) - sweet, honeyed, cinnamony. Flavor is rather disappointing after the good nose. Rather thin, strong alcohol notes, almost cidery. Not much of a tripel

Tmoney99 (13901) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - FEB 2, 2007
Bottle from Party Town, KY. Poured hazy golden with an average frothy white head that lasted with good lacing. Moderate yeasty fruity aroma. Medium body with a slick texture. Medium complex sweet flavor with a medium sweet small alcohol finish of moderate duration.

Skinnyviking (9139) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JAN 13, 2007
Bottle. White creamy low head. Clear golden body. Aroma and flavor dominated by alcohol. Flowery aroma with notes of bubble gum. Dry flavor of lemon berries and spices.

frankenkitty (2007) - Oak Lawn, Illinois, USA - JAN 10, 2007
Light hazed golden with a pulpy particulate haze. Aroma is disconcerting yet intriguing with sulfurus apple & banana, moldy leaves and a touch of cholrine. Fluffy & dry. Flavor finds light malted notes beneath a fruity, bitter, musty yeastiness.

jetzler (622) - oklahoma city, Oklahoma, USA - JAN 10, 2007
750ml trappist glass. Pours really quite clear for a triple. I was suprised by the clarity, fairly light in taste for a triple, as was the head retention which reducedd rapidy. This brew was tasty but really a bit on the small side for an abbey triple.

Grovlam (4208) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JAN 8, 2007
UPDATED: JAN 9, 2007 Bottle, vintage tastning @ Den Tatoverede Enke, Copenhagen. Head large frothy and white which mostly lasted. Good lacing to be observed. Body was clear and sparkling. Color was light corn yellow. Aroma was flowers, perfume, citrus, sweat, leather soap, light alcoholic, banana, bubble gum, spices and coriander. Medium bodied with a sticky like texture. Light sweet and moderated bitter flavor with an average lasting finish. Reasonable complex I thought, but not the greatest Tripel.

Theis (15152) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JAN 8, 2007
Bottle at DTE - Ratebeer night (06-01-07). Clear light yellow - white head. Yeast, citrus, licorice, fruity, apples, lots of citrus, light hoppy. Classic tripel but not complex and balanced enough.

Miksu (5046) - Jyvskyl, FINLAND - JAN 6, 2007
0.75 l bottle. Hazy golden-peachy color. Pepper, clove, orange, parfume and tobacco in the aroma. Citrus, grapefruit, clove, pepper and bread in the flavor. Strong clovey and orangey in the finish. After a while cloviness is somewhat disturbing and sharp.
