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)

ravidesai (947) - Bombay, INDIA - MAR 19, 2002
hazy orange color with a foamy head. sugary tasting and sweet but with enough tart and citrus flavors to balance the sugars. fairly potent brew will warm you up nicely.

MOboy (505) - Kansas City, Missouri, USA - MAR 5, 2002
Typical belgian ale head, nice golden tripel color. Very fuity flavor but nothing that I can get excited about. I think I may be burnt out on tripels right now.

Ringo (963) - Loveland, Colorado, USA - FEB 12, 2002
Nice frothy, pillowy head. Smells nice. A little light on flavor though. Alcohol is the predominant, although not overwhelming flavor. A bit on the salty side for me. Not sour considering it is a Flander’s ale. Pretty good but not great.

Very very good. Some fruity undertones, but very subtle. Very well rounded taste.

Gusler (2653) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - JAN 29, 2002
A some what hazy orange, or light amber if you like, the head if frothy, but dissipates quickly, but the lace stays to the some what sour end. Nose lot’s of yeast, a little malt, and some fruit tones also noticed. Starts malt sweet, the middle thin, the finish is dry, acidic,slightly tart, and a nice belly warming abv, also a little hops makes for a quite quaffable beer.

IanMcChouffe99 (40) - NETHERLANDS - JAN 9, 2002
An excellent, but not the best, belgian tripel. Full of flavor, and not to strong.

fraternie (814) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - OCT 23, 2001
A beautiful beer with a huge fluffy head that stays with the beer until the last sip. A little yeasty, some spicy citrus malt, not incredibly hoppy...sits on my palate a little too much towards the end, but overall very good.

Indra (2595) - Overland Park, Kansas, USA - OCT 13, 2001
UPDATED: FEB 29, 2004 Aroma is extremely yeasty, with a hint of malt. Appropriately large, fluffy head and vigorous carbonation. Pleasant medium golden color. Slight sedimentation, but the brew remains relatively clear. Interesting orangey, malty taste, followed by some slightly astringent hop flavors. Aftertaste is citrusy. Fruitiness is quite evident. Good.
