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)

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 (9022) - 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.

Sten (731) - Westerlo, BELGIUM - JUN 4, 2006
Blond, slightly orange colour with a decent white head. Good sweet aroma. Sweet and spicy taste with some alcohol noticeable, disgusting aftertaste. (Bottle 33cl)

jujubeast6000 (854) - Houston, Texas, USA - MAY 21, 2006
750mL bottle: Pours a very bubbly, golden yellow clearish color, big head, fine bubbles. Aroma of dark fruit, plum, citrus, rich, not strong. Bubbly taste, citrus, some alcohol, not very complex. Very light tasting but not much flavor.

HomesickAlien (20) - Michigan, USA - MAY 19, 2006
Pours hazy gold with a medium sized fluffy white head of tiny bubbles, lots of sticky lacing. Aromas of yeast, banana, apple, coriander. Flavor matches aromas, fruity and yeasty with some spice and a hint of hops. Alcohol is well hidden. Itís sweet but not cloying, a pretty tasty triple. Mouthfeel is fizzy and foamy. Too much carbonation for my liking. This stuff just expands in your mouth with harsh carbonation. Too bad because it tastes really good.

Quinten (1059) - zaandam, NETHERLANDS - MAY 16, 2006
Dark colden color, big foamy head, aroma of yeast, banana, some citrus, fully complex one but not to overwalming. one of the better triple.

EithCubes (5460) - New Jersey, USA - MAY 16, 2006
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.

PilsnerPeter (3037) - Flushing, New York, USA - MAY 8, 2006
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.
