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)

wnp22 (685) - Toronto (Roncesvalles Village), Ontario, CANADA - NOV 14, 2004
Tatsed in Toronto. Obtained from LCBO. Tasted in an Affligem chalice. Colour is light yellow, possibly straw. Clear with evident carbonation bubbles. Head is thick white and lasting. Aroma of cloves, spice and slight sweetness with a yeasty presence. All attributes found in the aroma are not present in the flavour. The flavour begins, continues and ends with a bitter acrid monotone theme. Unfortunate.

Not my favourite tripel but pretty good. Pale golden colour, fairly clear. The nose and flavour are dry and pleasantly spicy with hints of tropical fruit. I prefer triples with more fruit.

dirkules (629) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 8, 2004
A delicious triple. Probably one of the best from the rare bunch that I have had. Hazy amber/orange pour with a frothy carbonated white head. Cotton candy, butternut, banana and pears in the flavour with a tart and peppery mouthfeel. Finishes spicy with hops and a silky smoothness on the tongue. Tender and fresh!

joeycapps (1468) - Waterdown, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 7, 2004
Bright, cloudy golden-amber colour w/ good carbonation. Generous, fluffy white head. Nice lace. Yeasty & fruity aroma of banana, orange, pear, orange w/ some grassy hop notes. Firm, juicy, dry feel. Yeasty & fruity flavour that starts out sweet then gives way to a slight sourness. The finish is dry & peppery, leaving some herbal notes on the palate.

Vac (2445) - San Diego, California, USA - OCT 20, 2004
This triple pours with an orange-gold body topped by a thick, fizzy, off-white head with a good amount of lacing. The aroma is sweet and fruity (orange) with a faint spiciness and a touch of sourness. The flavor is sweet and fruity (orange) with a slight sugar note, a little tin note and a slight spiciness. Medium bodied, smooth and slightly dry with a slight tingle on the tongue.

pours golden, with a slightly swet flavor & a flat finish. The ending was disappointing

willblake (2647) - Bel Air, Maryland, USA - OCT 5, 2004
10.04.04 750 bottle that almost took my thumb off when I opened it. A rosey gold pour with small to medium white head, as tripels go. Aromas fresh, grapey, and light, but deeply vinous complexity. Clove and vanilla. Flavors are mild, little to no spicey bite. More grapes. Tingly and crisp eff. Overall, somewhat bland as Belgian trips go, but enjoyable nonetheless.

Pigfoot (2268) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - OCT 1, 2004
Appearance: lovely, bright apricot color, with a mountainous, lush, pillowy cloud of lacey white foam. Pretty, and impressive. Aroma: sparkles with sugar and spice, soft but pungent and substantive, hints of citrus and other fruits. Great, buzzing hops greet the tongue, bright, tasty, fruity, dazzling! Excellent texture: a golden mouth-flooding flavor matches the golden color! Taste goes on and on, a persistent and prominent sweetness continues, and aids considerably in the flavor and overall experience. Body’s a bit on the light side, but full of yeast, and an amble helping of malt. A sparkling, tingling sensation dances on the tastebuds with each and every sip, resonating through the mouth. Light spiciness continues on the palate. Everything in this tripel is a bit light and moderate, while still stretching towards the sublime! I almost didn’t want any beer tonight, but made the commitment with this 750ml bottle. I won’t be getting up early in the morning, but it would have been worth it. A very fine abbey tripel!

Big bottle outdoors at N 3rd. Two of these babies with 4 lbs of chicken wings on a beautiful late summer evening. Great pop on opening, thick foamy lasting head, gorgeous glassware. Sweet, rich, flowery flavor - a hint of spice, just yummy.
