Kst (1273) - Mol, BELGIUM - NOV 28, 2002
Blond with a small head. Weak aroma. A vague yeast and tea flavour. It grows nicely in the mouth. A beer you could drink a lot of.

Unremarkable, though reasonably well done tripel.

AceOfHearts (1374) - Mountain View, California, USA - NOV 4, 2002
Im reasonable sure this was the "Urthel Triple" that I just had. Champagne-ish appearance. Very rich aroma of freah apples and bread, which follow through quite nicely in the flavor. Simple but good.

Oakes (16655) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 13, 2002
Light tan, densely sedimented w/thick, fluffy head. Aroma of sweet pears and hint of grapefruit, white pepper, pale malt, and yeast. Firm body, but spritzy; lots of yeast flavour; fruity (orange, apple, mango), hint of sugar. Despite the sweet start, this dries out significantly with a big shot of alcohol, orange rind, and hop (either Styrian or Hallertau).

VENOM (941) - Connecticut, USA - OCT 10, 2002
33cl bottle. Hazy peach littered with yeast particles. Thick, frothy off white head. Streaming tiny bubbled carbonation. Aroma of pale Belgian malts, Saaz and Styrian hops, light plastic and spicy yeast. Fizzy, bubbly and sharp. Spicy sweet with feisty yeast notes. Solid hop dose mixes with the spicy, but not apparent, alcohol. Light bodied due to the carbonation. Mild sweetness. Warming automatically, from the alcohol and spiciness. Fizziness settles but this remains fluffy until the end. Not a bad thing, as it hides the ABV well. Nothing really stands out here but the moldy, powdery yeast flavor. Finishes harsh, drier and funky. Funky like licking the armpit of a flannel shirt after a sweaty day of raking leaves. Weird. Nothing I would search for.

Gusler (2653) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - SEP 23, 2002
Clear gold in color, the head is generous, white as is the lace that clings in sheets. Nose is maly, hint of fusel alcohol, even a bit bubble gummy. Front is sweet, the top light, the finish is nicely hopped, dry, mildly acidic, and a fair to midlin belly warmer. Ranks #589 on my current 1000 beer master list.

joet (2574) - Santa Rosa, California, USA - SEP 13, 2002
A fruity tripel that screams Chimay yeast with its nose. Tangy and some alcohol pepper. Its missing some brightness and crispness.

Very nice, spicy, hoppy and malty.

caesar (6942) - Bunnik/Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - SEP 4, 2002
UPDATED: JUL 16, 2003 Smells like cheese. Golden color. Bit spicy, fruity, malty. Decent triple.

jerohen (2229) - Bussum, NETHERLANDS - SEP 4, 2002
UPDATED: MAR 1, 2003 I enjoyed the Tonicum Finiboldhus, so i was looking forward to this one. However, this trippel is not very convincing. Alcohol is a bit overwhelming in the aftertaste.
