COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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: 8-10ºC)

Amber/orange in colour. White head pours large and has a thin ring which lasts to the end. Some alcohol is present in the flavour and texture. Aroma is yeasty with average hops and slightly malty. Good balance.

fuyajo (229) - Portland, Oregon, USA - MAR 5, 2006
Aroma of alcohol, carmel; hazy golden color. Poured to a large head. Foamy, rather thick mouth feel with tastes of fruit, alcohol and bitterness. Not bad, but not my favorite.

biz82 (1328) - austin, Texas, USA - FEB 20, 2006
Hazy and golden with heavy carbonation and a tight rocky head. Sweet, light caramel malt and mineral aroma with some juniper berry. Crisp, lightly sweet and somewhat bitter. Flavors of orange peel, cracker, curacao. Nice.

Quevillon (2673) - Boisbriand, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 25, 2006
Reçu comme cadeau, avec le double et deux blonde, dans un embalage cadeau avec verre. Aussi bonne que la double, mais plus de saveur.

CannonFodderNJ (1) - New Jersey, USA - JAN 10, 2006 does not count
Smooth, warm and inviting... a smooth drink with a fine aftertaste... I fully enjoy the stronger flavours of the end of the bottle. Quick a delightful drink to sit down and relax with.

awaisanen (1304) - Fond du Lac, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 8, 2006
Hazy orange color with a nice fluffy head. Some sweet orange citrus and fruity yeast aromas. Sweet yeasty flavor with a bit of bready malts and spice lingering. Flavors are subtle and pleasant, making this a good drinking beer but not a spectacular "tasting" beer.

DrBayern (1139) - Morehead City, North Carolina, USA - DEC 31, 2005
Pours an almost clear gold, big rocky off white head, just lovely. Soft aroma of bread and light citrus. Wonderful mouthfeel with a medium/full body and very light fine carbonation. Solid malt base with fruit and citrus flavors - nicely balanced. An undercurrent of hop bitterness offsets the malt leaving a not too sweet and not too bitter middle of the road finish. Little evidence of the alcohol, and without the sourness of some tripels. Not my first, and won’t be last. Happy New Year!!
