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: 8-10ļC)

DocLock (9239) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 7, 2006
Bottle from Super Saver. Hazy dark straw pour with 2-finger off-white head. Aromas of floral spices, hopcitrus, yeasty funk notes. The flavor was dry, floral, spicy, and citric, with some yeasty funky malt notes as it warmed. Very complex and well balanced, this is an outstanding tripel.

Cornfield (5570) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - JUL 4, 2006
Very Nice. Very Drinkable. Not as intense or complex as many of the tripels that Iíve had, yet quite enjoyable. Pouring a hazy amber body with a creamy off-white head, itís got a soapy, yeasty aroma with sweet malt, oranges and apricots, dried flowers, and some peppery spicing. The taste much reflects the aroma, the sweetness taking a honey-like turn, the flowers bittering some, and the alcohol making itself known. It finishes on a mildy bitter/tart note. Good stuff.

Cork says 10/03. Pours hazy amber into a trappist glass. Consistent, bright white, micro head does not dissipate. Sweet dried fruit (raisins and apricots) and yeast notes. Full with upfront sweet apricot honey with and a medium, dry sour alcohol finish.

750 ml bottle - Pours very cloudy with a really huge head. This one has to be poured in stages even if youíre careful. Thereís tons of yeast. Before I opened the bottle I noticed more yeast on the bottom than Iíve ever seen in a bottle. The pleasant aroma has plenty of citrus. The flavor is heavy on the sweet malt and yeast, and has a bit of spice, a trace of fruit, and a little alcohol. The mouthfeel is very bubbly and the finish slightly bitter. Itís a good abbey ale, but not outstanding.

bask (305) - Leuven, BELGIUM - JUN 17, 2006
75 cl bottle. I drank the bottle on its expiration date, so I guess it is about 3 years old. Beige, stable rocky head. Dark blond to amber body. Aroma of herbs, some alcohol, coriander, fruits, some lager malt. Sweet orange flavour, more bitter finish. Sticky mouthfeel.

bb (7986) - Alamo, California, USA - JUN 16, 2006
Bottle. Rich orange-amber beer with a big white head. Spicey, floral aroma with a bit of malt. Sweet malt and spice flavor with a bit of orange fruitiness. Sticky. This one just doesnít do it for me - too sticky and sweet. Alcohol present.

bikesandbeers (547) - san diego, California, USA - JUN 5, 2006
bottle. Clody orange with a great thick head. sweet aroma. flavor is sweet and fruity. ends on a slightly sour citrus note, which makes me happy. Light smoth and easy. I may be opverrating this, since i havenít had a belgian in months, but this seems really good for a macro belgian.

DuffMan (8801) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - JUN 4, 2006
Orange-amber with chunky yeast sediment churned into a soupy swirl. Fruity with definite citrus notes, spice and yeast add to a complex palate. Iíll say again that triples donít always capture my attention like some other raters, but I enjoyed this one.

Blond, slightly orange colour with a decent white head. Good sweet aroma. Sweet and spicy taste with some alcohol noticeable, disgusting aftertaste. (Bottle 33cl)
