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)

Lots of carbonation bubbles playing around in the chalice. A huge white head tops the light copper colored body. Certainly impressive in it’s presentation. Aroma is more interesting than most other tripels I have encountererd. The strongest smell is barnyward funkiness, like Orval. Also some lemon sourness and a little cinnamon spice. The taste is more sour than other tripels at first. I find this to be interesting. Barnyard taste and dusty cobwebs in the mouthfeel. A dry and slightly spicy finish. Also a cheesy note. As you drink some pears and some brown sugar are also present. This would be great with a strong cheese or maybe some fruit for contrast. Refreshing.

This golden amber ale pours with a lacy white head. The flavor is fruity and light, with spicy enhancements. Overall, a very nice brew.

PorterPounder (7223) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - NOV 30, 2004
750 ml bottle - Whole Foods, Austin, Tx. Pours a light, bright orange with a fluffy white head, solid lacing. Strong, solid aroma of fresh fruit, nectarines perhaps, and a bit of wine. Flavor has elements of orange peel, raisins, dates and a wee bit of yeast. Alcohol comes through in the end, but is not distracting. Mouthfeel is thick enough. A most decent Tripel.

Radek Kliber (7113) - Toronto (Can) Krotoszyn (Pol), POLAND - NOV 30, 2004
Woody, sweet malts, honey, touch of spice and fruit. This amber gold pours decent white head. Sharp front with plenty of bitters that is followed by sweeter malt and warming alcohol. Kind of dry end.

Wonderful aromas, reminds me of a fresh pear. Very sweet body. Strong enough to please, but a pleasantly light and refreshing finish. Quite quaffable. Extra points in overall for being a great value at $6.99

Beer strongly impact. A lot structured. Determined body and bitter. Adherent foam. Perhaps too much strongly.

wanted to try this style and see what the rage was about. Nice balance less hop than I expected, pleasant surprise, Detected a hint of fruit but nothing overwhelming about it, I could kind of taste the alcohol, I could sure feel it.

wnp22 (698) - Toronto (Roncesvalles Village), Ontario, CANADA - NOV 14, 2004
Tatsed in Toronto. Obtained from LCBO. Tasted in an Affligem chalice. Colour is light yellow, possibly straw. Clear with evident carbonation bubbles. Head is thick white and lasting. Aroma of cloves, spice and slight sweetness with a yeasty presence. All attributes found in the aroma are not present in the flavour. The flavour begins, continues and ends with a bitter acrid monotone theme. Unfortunate.

Not my favourite tripel but pretty good. Pale golden colour, fairly clear. The nose and flavour are dry and pleasantly spicy with hints of tropical fruit. I prefer triples with more fruit.
