Guest tap tulip at Flossmoor Station. I’ve got a 2002 bottle from trade in my cellar, but here’s a chance to try it fresh on tap: Cloudy yellow overlay on a golden pils type body. Stiff white head with yellow flecks. Sweet, alcoholic smell with a comforting malt backing. Taste starts with bitter orange peel, some wit spices like coriander and grains of paradise, but all in good harmony. taste is not quite as sweet as the smell, or as a Tripel would expect to taste. Some slight weizen esters. Light on hops, which is a good thing for my scratchy throat right now. Slight bubblegum finish.

Deep gold with a white head. Honey and floral aroma. Sweet malty, boozy and full bodied. Nice but could be drier.

Pretty middle of the road for taste, high abv and a bit heavy make this a one or two beer kind of brew. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours gold with a light haze. The white head soon fades. Aroma is bubblegum, apple juice, fresh dough, spice. Taste is mostly sweet but with a complex undertones: bubblegum, apple, plum, pepper, clove. An interesting mixture that works. The finish is long, dry, bittersweet, spicy, and warming. Body is medium with a nicely balanced carbonation. Excellent.

Bottle from Hofstetten: Aroma ist a nice mix of fruits, yeast and spices. Notes of oranges, grain, honey, Belgian yeast, candies. Flavour is also very fruity with oranges, candies and honey but also herbal hops. Ends light herbal bitter. Nice and round.

Aroma: light belgian spice with some apple juice; Appearance: clear golden pour with thin white head that dissipates quickly; Taste: brighter and more complex than aroma; tons of additional spice; Palate: medium body with long spicy finish; Overall: not my favorite tripel but decent.

Has a sweet malted taste, with a a strong bite for a finish. A delicious end to an evening.

Goodness above, That’s a crashing amount of things going on, Lovely aroma does not prepare you for the explosion in the mouth of softness and a giant harshness and tart dryness that flows, sweet, sharp, soft and brutish. Loved it !

Oh man, my review vanished.

Pours a golden color. Lots of sediment, and chunks floating about. Big ones, small ones, some as big as your head is white, took several attempts to pour it all into the glass.

Aroma is bready, spicy, banana, grape, brown sugar, yeast.

Taste is much of the same. Yeast, coriander. Brown sugar, banana. Ooh, touch of vanilla. Banana.

Mouthfeel is medium bodied. You taste and feel the alcohol right away. Well, not so much taste it, but detect it. Smooth, but slightly astringent.

Overall, this is pretty good. I like it. It’s both easy and hard to drink. I would probably buy it again, if the price was right.

Nice golden pour with a light, white head and a little haziness. Flavor is yeasty and sweet - a spicy fruit flavor with hints of honey and a soft alcohol finish. Perhaps not the finest beer but a very enjoyable experience nonetheless.
