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)

One that has always been around and I don’t know why I’ve never rated it. Opened like a cork gun Straw colored, slightly hazy, pours with a frothy head that quickly dissapates. Aroma is yeasty very bread like, fruity like bananas mixed with dandelions. Flavor is very sweet with a tinge of bitterness on the finish.

Joeh (2049) - Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - SEP 11, 2004
Bottle, bought in Belgium. 330ml, served in a chalice. Wonderfully sweet and malty with some rather crude bitterness and well covered alcohol. Pleasent yeast, floral and light spice. Nice.

Rastacouere (6153) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 20, 2004
Generous white head over a nice hazy golden body. Huge pop upon opening, but no gushing at all. It smells green and spicy. Peppery nose with light mint, sweet candi sugar, beautiful belgian yeast, chamomille and fitting honey malt. High carbonation, fluffy medium body. Very herbal palate, dry, flowery. Balancing bitter finish. Light alcohol notes. Terrific tripel, brilliant balance.

legion242 (2322) - Richardson, Texas, USA - AUG 19, 2004
Poured with small head and slightly cloudy haze. Nice fizziness on the tongue and the appropriate sweet/dry balance. Quite a nice example of the style. Well done.

Nate (3806) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 3, 2004
Orange bread and honey aroma, sweet. Medium golden amber clear (before dregs) with pillowy off-white lacing head. Medium-heavy watery body with light-medium carbonation. Starts sweet, with bubblegum, sugar - almost saccharin - Belgian ale yeast, and some banana. No acidity. Alcohol warming toward the finish, with light dry bitterness and sweetness. After is muted sweet with decent chalky bitterness. A fairly balanced tripel, but just a bit too sweet.

SledgeJr (3577) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - JUL 28, 2004
In the bottle at the 2004 Crescent Moon Vintage Beer Tasting. Creamy head. Fruity, cidery, and burnt taste. More of a wine than beer it seems. Big mouth coating feel. This aged just fine over the last decade or so.
