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)

Hazy dark-blond color; big creamy head. Nice spicy aroma and flavor, some malt, dryish. Not complex but good.

Orange-amber color, nice perlage, thick creamy head (wonderful!). Strong but balanced: delicate malt and old hops aroma; spicy malt with some hop aggressivity in the mouth. A classic and very good Tripel.

Ewwwww. First, I do not like Tripels. Aroma was strong, sweet, and fruity. Light golden color with a lot of bubbles and a big thick white head. Flavor was overpowering. Strong and woody with a lof of fruit as well. Huge head, nice lacing. Palate was ok. Too thick and sweet for me. I really did not like this beer, though

DarkElf (3038) - La Jolla, California, USA - APR 7, 2004
UPDATED: APR 20, 2004 Sweet and slightly syrupy, this tripel is more malty, fruity and woody than most and is fairly consistent throughout; There is a mild bitterness, but it is pleasant and complementary; The nose has an artificially sweet, but lightly malty aroma; Gold in color and clear; White head is sizeable on the pour and has good retention and blankets the glass with lacing

hopscotch (10003) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - MAR 22, 2004
UPDATED: MAR 26, 2004 This beer rocks! Slightly hazy orange-amber ale with a large, frothy white head. Great retetention and weeping lace. The nose is of white bread, white pepper, pear, overripe banana and orange. Fruity, spicy flavor. Well-balanced by the alcohol and hops. Full-bodied with a silky mouthfeel and lively carbonation. Something about this beer really appeals to me... more-so than most triples. Thanks to jbrus for the bottle. World class beer!

Hmmm, interesting aroma is present here. A fresh bakery smell, perhaps glazed doughnuts, biscuits, very yeasty, with a tangy tart bite that is midly acidic and astrigent tasting. The taste is almost coppery, with not enough malt to back up the spiciness of the yeast. Lots of ginger, and corriander. Tastes honestly more like a saison to me.

wunderbier (1434) - Tampere, FINLAND - MAR 8, 2004
750 mL bottle, snifter. Bread and biscuit malt (M); nice spicey hops (styrian) (M); nutty yeast (M). Pale and hazy peach body with good carbonation and a nice lasting, egg-white, frothy head. Heavily sweet flavor becomes a moderately sweet, lightly bitter finish. Very metallic/minerally. Medium-heavy body, oily texture, fizzy carbonation. The bottom line is: more like Affligem *Saison*.
