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)

TBone (14899) - Pori, FINLAND - FEB 21, 2005
Bottled (BB 05/2005)
Hazy golden, good white head, lace. Aroma of apples and lemon. Good strong body. Starts with tickling carbonation, then opens tasty citric flavors and finishes with alcoholic touch. Some citric acid in the aftertaste. Balanced, good triple, straightforward.

Crosling (1864) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - FEB 18, 2005
Orange with a fairly attractive and creamy head of foam that shows an attractive lace. The aroma, though subtle, shows a bit of citrus fruits, dough, orange and lemon. Initially, on the front palate, the flavor is a bit ghastly but things turn in the mid-palate as notes of caramel, sugared fruit and butter toffee begin to develop. A bit sweet, especially on the finish, but overall, this beer is pretty characterful and a stark improvement compared to the brewer’s Dubbel.

Inveigler (371) - Ferndale, Michigan, USA - FEB 13, 2005
The aroma is very complex with lots of malts -- a little heavier and headier than most tripels. Some marshmallow and candy cane whiffs in a hazed light orange color. The head disapates quickly. Tje flavor is robust -- none of that characteristic Belgian thinness -- this stuff is all malt. A little woodsier that I would like, but still good.

Cartoonkhaki (1225) - Brantford, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 31, 2005
Golden yellow with large pillowy white head. Malty honey aroma carbonated palate... Alcoholic flavour sugary sweet... lighthop and bitter .... decent.

millejt (4) - Mobile, Alabama, USA - JAN 28, 2005 does not count
Cloudy opaque amber color, nice frothy whit head that dissipated rather quickly. Fruity slightly spicy aroma. Nice citrusy taste with fruity after taste. Overall an excellent Abbey Ale.

eleusis (70) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JAN 22, 2005
Slight alcohol flavor, mostly coriander and citrus... reminds of some hefe’s. Pretty bad for a Belgianl, it was irritating to finish the bottle, I was totally bored with it.

pintbypint (3150) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - JAN 21, 2005
330ml brown bottle. Another selection from Affligem’s "Combipack", thanks LCBO. Cloudy honeyish gold beer with a nice white head. Aromas include light oranges, caramel and yeast. Bready, big yeasty accents with sweet malt, some pleasing bitterness sneaks in along the way. Pleasing alcohol notes and lingering hops in the finish. Another enjoyable Affligem brew.

jercraigs (9154) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 12, 2005
Bottle. LCBO Gift Pack Winter 2004. Crisp clear golden yellow body with a nice billowy head. Wheaty, yeasty slightly sweet aroma. Sweetish flavour has a dry bready finish. Interesting subtle notes of spice, vague touch of black pepper. Smoothly drinkable with a complexity that escaped my notes if not my tastebuds. Improves through the glass. Medium bodied palate. Nice beer.

ThomasE (5174) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JAN 4, 2005
Golden colour with large white foamy head. aroma has a malty sweetness with some apricot, hints of a hoppy bitterness. Aroma is malty with some fruit, finish has some yeast and alcohol. Nice palate.

humulus (339) - Salem, Missouri, USA - JAN 3, 2005
Excellent carbonation on this dull, tan/burnt sienna colored brew. Very earthy yeasts and minimal sweetness. Aroma of apples, carrots, honey and rich humus ladden soil. Alcohol is as undetectable as the sweetness, but certainly present. I was especially please to have no floaties. Complex flavor that well fits the silent epoch detailed by krisbierjaeger’s rate (that dudes a poet). Overall, a complex symphony of ingredients and a great example of the style. Let this baby breath and she’ll really open up.
