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 (9570) - 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 (2012) - 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.

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 (4244) - 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 (5053) - Jyväskylä, 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. auderale (605) - Minot, North Dakota, USA - DEC 1, 2006
Golden colored pour with thin white head. Spicy, perfumy aroma with a nice hoppy, spicy finish. Jukkabro (3484) - Tampere, FINLAND - NOV 24, 2006
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.
