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.

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.

DanBerg (59) - Alkmaar, NETHERLANDS - DEC 25, 2006
Pretty nice tripel with a big head. Drank a bottle at home. Not very special, a bit dry. If you want to have a very special tripel, try something else.

Dark yellow colored, little white head. Orange, yeast, mild spices and some berries in aroma. Medium bodied. Crispy palated with some carbonation. Flavor is more spicy with orange and yeast, fruits with bitter hops also in flavor. Aftertaste lasts with spicy hops and mild alcohol.

Svesse (8360) - Hsselby, SWEDEN - NOV 19, 2006
(Draught at Monks Caf, Stockholm, 17 Nov) Golden yellow colour with small head. Fruity, slightly yeasty, nose with notes of dried fruit and spicy hops. Malty, spicy taste with oranges, green apples, yeast and a well balanced spicy and herbal bitterness in the finish. Fairly dry. Nice beer.

PhillyBeer2112 (2804) - Oviedo, Florida, USA - NOV 7, 2006
A fair tripel, with a mild spicy and phenolic nose, fairly sweet if a bit heavy on the palate. Flavor cleaner than youd want. A bit weak in terms of alcohol content, but at least whats present is well masked. Cloudy golden color with a big creamy head.

TheGrandMaster (2335) - Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - OCT 25, 2006
Bottle at the Place, the unofficial brewery tap. A clear copper colour with some carbonation and a white bubbly head. Punchy vinuous fruit aroma. Sweet and vinuous at first, the carbonation carrying through to a bitter and dry cleansing finish.

wilkie (1208) - Raleigh, North Carolina, USA - OCT 14, 2006
Bottle. Very fizzy head, very carbonated, some particulate matter. Faint fruity, spice aroma. Flaor is very fruity and sweet, orange, a bit of alcohol in aftertaste. Good balance of sweet/strong/yeast.
