The king of the abbey beers. It is amber-gold and pours with a deep head and original aroma, delivering a complex, full bodied flavour. Pure enjoyment! Secondary fermentation in the bottle. (Temp: 8-10ļC)

Bottle. Hazy golden-amber pour with a more stable head than the Blond, beautifully rocky and lacing. Smells sweet and malty, prevalent spiciness from coriander. Light fruitiness and alcohol, some yeast. As for the taste, crisp and medium-alcoholic, smooth feel with orange peels and spicey coriander, yeast, pepper. Pleasantly warming. A subtle and top-shelf Tripel, though Iíd still rather have a Karmeliet.

UPDATED: AUG 17, 2006 Pours deep gold color,nice head. Very flavorful, hints of citrus. First couple of sips very dry, then the maltyness evens it out. Very drinkable, alcohol well hidden.

Hooray for beer. This is a pretty standard tripel, but that in itís own right makes it pretty good. I like the Affligem beers. Economical without sacrificing too much in the quality department. I had this in a bottle from Baronís Marketplace and then on tap at the San Diego Brewing Company. The stuff will get you to orbit quickly.

2001: Pour is dark hazy golden with a pretty impressive head, since it is over 5 years old...very very yeasty aroma, citrus, pepper, cloves...bread too...taste is bitter and spicy at first, turning a little citric and sweet...fizzy mouthfeel still...finish is a little sour...sort of strange...

Tasted from 750ml bottle. the initial aroma was of Light yeasty and toasted malt. The head was frothy, off white that lasted for the majority of the time in the glass. When it did dissipate, it left ample lacing. The color was a hazy yellow amber color. The initial flavor was strong hoppy and alcholic with malty finish that lasted quite a while. somewhat mossy flavor. My first Belgian ale. It was good.

chicagobears (438) - Elk Grove Village, Illinois, USA - MAY 3, 2006
UPDATED: MAY 11, 2007 Hazy gold with creamy white head. Very lively. Chalky texture, has a real spicy, nutty medicinal flavor, slightly fruity. Pretty complex. Finishes dry and oily. I like this, but I thought it would be better. I enjoyed this beer so much more the second time around. I re-rated from 3.2 to 3.9

hazy brown gold with a medium sized white head that settles into a thin creamy layer. yeast, spice, lemon, peach, tropical fruit aroma. yeast, candy, peach and alcohol in the flavor. the alcohol shows through a little too much. i also taste something medicinal occasionally.

Fairly complex flavor that manages to be rich and fruity as well as dry with a highly carbonated mouthfeel. Medium bodied and good but nothing much to stand out from the pack.

Iíll start off by saying: I donít know much about these beers. one of the better beers iíve ever smelled, and poured a cloudy amber color. The one bad thing about this beer was the price.. of course i did get a huge 750ml bottle, but for 7.50 yikes. I really like the taste of these beers.. real hard to explain.. taste dark, looks light, and kicks ur ass with the heavy alc content. I think the freakest part about this beer are the floating chunks of yeast in the bottem of the bottle. I would reccoment atleast trying this beer once.
